Word on the street is that if unicorns were real, everything that they consume on a daily basis would be beautiful, full of sparkles, and rainbow.
I mean, it is quite fitting. The unicorn trend has taken off rapidly this year as you can find unicorn related DIY for almost every category out there. Unicorn clothing is also very popular amongst the millennial generation.
My favorite unicorn creation: The giant unicorn floaties
Wildfox also has some great unicorn sweatshirts online
But, I decided to go the unicorn foodie route…. with grilled cheese!
-Three different kinds of shredded cheese (to add some extra gooeyness to the final product)
-Food coloring (preferably bright colors)
-Different bowls for making each color of cheese
*Tip: Less is more when it comes to food coloring if you want that bright color
After the cheese coloring is to your own unicorn aesthetic perfection, start to put it on the bread (after buttering one side of course), and then just proceed as you usually would with grilled cheese!
I kind of burnt mine, (honestly I am a terrible cook). I also wished that I would have used white bread so that once I put the sprinkles on it would have contrasted more.
*Trick: After cooking the grilled cheese, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. This will allow you to get that perfect gooey cheese coming out of the sides, and that stringy look when pulling the two pieces apart.
Enjoy this unicorn meal, and sparkle on
How does one choose where to get breakfast in the Minneapolis/ Uptown area when there are so many options out there? Recommendations are what always get me to go somewhere. The Bad Waitress has two locations, one in Northeast and one on Nicollet.

Why is this restaurant titled “The Bad Waitress”? This is due to the fact that there really is not a waitress at all. Once you have chosen where you would like to dine, there is a notepad where you write your own order down. Then bring your order slip up to the cash register where you pay up-front, and that’s that. After going back to your table someone will bring the food to your table.
(I would not have known ANY of this if I had gone alone or with another new customer)... so go with someone who has been before!
Plus: You can just leave whenever you want, loved not waiting for the check at the end!
Minus: Each table is labeled by a superhero, which I personally thought made the place look a little junky. Also, I honestly did not know how much to tip because hello “Bad Waitress.”
I was really wanting to wear this silk neck scarf, so I thought hey why not let the yellow tones in it match my eggs benedict!

Mon Amie, Mon Amour, Mon Paris Baguette
This cute little bakery caught my eye in the Times Square area. Their logo translates to “My friend, my love, my Paris baguette.” The macaron I chose was raspberry flavored (and yes I chose it because it matched my dress). I honestly am not a huge fan of macaroons, but I just love the look of them. They are poised, and always perfect looking. They draw you in with their French aesthetic. Blair Waldorf could always be found eating macaroon after macaroon on Gossip Girl. How does the girl do it? Mainly why I love them, is that they are such a photogenic cookie. A macaroon will never have a bad hair day.
I am no pizza connoisseur by any means. But it does not take an expert to rate some street vendors. A New York slice of pizza starts at 99 cents and nothing beats that. With a slice the size of my head, this is a better deal than Mesa Pizza back home. Although Punch Pizza still holds the number one spot in my heart with the fresh brick fire stove, this pizza came in second. The name of the vendor was Kiss My Slice, and they had a variety of options. Cheese is not very adventurous I know, but it looked amazing. Rebecca Minkoff joked that at one point in her life she was starving, and all she could afford was pizza off the streets. I do not doubt that! When the wallet is feeling some pain, and you have a high metabolism, go for the pizza diet.

I have come across Sugarfina at the Mall of America with one of their pop-up shops. Although the candies are at a higher price point, the aesthetic immediately justifies stealing a chunk of change from your wallet. A small cube is $7.50, while the large cube is $18.00. Champagne Bears and Rose Roses are some of the top sellers, feeding off the of the “I need a drink” trend. Other retailers from Wildfox to even Target can be found mirroring this trend. (No alcohol is actually included in any of these candies). The New York shop in the World Trade Center was the epitome of perfection. With everything in its place, a cute chandelier, and a visual display for Valentine's day, the presence immediately draws you in with no flashing lights or huge sale signs. The staff was very welcoming, and even offered us a free sample of the Bachelor rose gummies. For a cute treat yourself day, or as a gift for someone else, these candies bring the perfect mix of creativity and happy tastebuds.
My Opinion: The Champagne Bears aren't all that they are talked up to be. My vote for the most create are the Martini Olive Almonds!
-Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels
-But First, Rose Roses
-Ice Cream Cones
-Rose All Day Bears
-Maple Bourbon Caramels
-Chocolate Bacon Toffee
Check out their website if a store is not near you!
The Cupcake Market is located in East Village, a few blocks away from NYU. This little sweet shop’s idea was GENIUS. The faces on the cookies look very realistic. How do they do it? Through different molds they create each part of the faces so that the colors do not run together, let them sit for about a day, and then paste it together. The face is basically “glued” onto a sugar cookie with frosting.
(Put them together and your picture is 100X better)
-Kylie in the green hair stage
-Taylor Swift (Frenemy)
-Hocus Pocus Ladies
And then there is Madonna, cannot forget her!
I was not expecting these cookies to be $15.00, but after seeing them I had to have one. Drake with the tear drop was my choice. I am a huge fan, and even saw him perform in Chicago this summer. I must say it is weird consuming your favorite celebrity. If you dislike any of these celebs, you could also eat them out of anger. My friend saw my cookie and had to get her own. Of course I asked to pose with her Kanye cookie.
Regrets: Not getting the Kimoji cookie.
If you are going to get a Bloody you might as well go all out I have learned! The Twins Stadium has an option for $20 to get a Bloody Mary with a mini burger, the typically garnishes, and a giant seasoned chicken wing! It embodies the state fair with all these items on a stick. PSA: Everyone will stop and stare at it.
Did someone say $2 tacos?! Tuesday and Thursday most cannot resist this frugal deal. Belair also creates a great social atmosphere on these nights. Their food is delicious and much larger than chipotle!
"What's the password?" A few things to know about the restaurant SafeHouse, is that upon entering you will need to know the password, and whisper it into Mrs.Money Penny's ear before getting through. Although I will not inform you of what this password is, I will give out the hint that the location of the entrance is on the side of a building, in an alley sort of setting.
Once inside there is an atmosphere like none other. From James Bond movie posters, Russian spy related material, and even a chair that comes out of the ground, your eyes will never loose interest. The menu is all spy themed as well and great! After dinner there is a spy mission to embark on and even Donald Trump makes an appearance.
When your brunch spot is literally called "Brunch" the eggs better be fabulous. Yellow and blue with a sunny side egg is the signature for Brunch. It is located in downtown Milwaukee and it is worth the wait! The yellow and blue carry on to add fun characteristics to the interior of the restaurant with large historic doors. The food was FABULOUS the best hashbrowns with quinoa and some secret spice. You also can't go wrong with their banana pancakes and bottle service mimosas. Their "Brunch So Hard" shirts were my fav!
