Mast Brothers Chocolate

One of my favorite places I went to while in Brooklyn was the Mast Brothers Chocolate factory + store. Christy, who is totally hilarious and my East Coast soul sister, joined me for brunch and then a walk through the fabulous chocolate factory.

My favorite part of Mast Brothers Chocolate is their awesome packaging and wapping. I wish their paper was sold as gift wrap, it is so wonderful! Mast Bros has one employee who is responsible for all of their paper+pattern design as well as their graphic design. Talk about a dream job. How much fun would that be! Sign me up to be that apprentice, because seriously, what is better than excellent design and delicious chocolate! If you are ever in the Brooklyn area, definitely check out their store!

Jess in the City (My NY Recap)

I can’t believe it is a week since I jetted off for an amazing weekend in the big apple. I had the best time seeing old and new friends, exploring and just taking in everything New York has to offer. What a fun city, and I totally fell in love with so many parts. Check out some of the highlights below.

Walking the Brooklyn Bridge was definitely a highlight.

I spent a good amount of time in BK, and it was awesome. I had no idea how big it was!

Yes, it may seem weird that my friends took me to get tacos in NY, but the vibe of this place was awesome (and the tacos were pretty good too!)

Ended the trip with Soul Cycle, blowouts and a goodbye dinner with the lovely Elizabeth of Bonjour + Hola. Such a great hostess. (All I can say is thank you Alt Summit for introducing me to this señorita. “HOLA!”)

Coming next week, my Mast Brothers exploration with Christy (who is FANTASTIC.)

NYC!
