You know what I really love to do in the morning?
I love grabbing an iced bucket of coffee and strolling around the streets of New York.
I’m staying at a friend’s house in Greenwich Village, which happens to be within stumbling distance of a great coffee shop. So great in fact, you could say it’s the bee’s knees.
(And you should because that’s its name.)
<insert slurping sound here>
Spring has finally sprung in New York (I brought it with me from London, and you are welcome New Yorkers). Popcorn trees have burst up all over town, making it look even more glorious than usual.
Awash with coffee I made my way to Jack’s Wife Freda for some proper sustenance.
Which I found in the form of wonderfully runny eggs.
We shared poached eggs with grilled tomato & haloumi.
(What did the cheese say when he looked in the mirror? “HALOUMI!”)
A combination I wouldn’t have thought to put together, that works exceptionally well. The cheese adds a great salty kick & the toms sharpen it all up.
And green shakshuka. Baked, runny yolked eggs in a spiced sauce.
Perfect for mopping up with the challah toast (a bit like brioche but not as sweet).
And a spot of tea for The Londoner, of course.
Outside there was a flurry of excitement as ‘Girls’ was being filmed and people clamoured for a behind the scenes peek.
…Although I was slightly more excited by the bike bursting with blossom just leaning casually against a shop.
In case you’re wondering I’m wearing a Wildfox “Wild” jumper that’s softer than a warm kitten. Ripped Ridley jeans (say that 10times fast). Soludos stripy espadrilles. An LK Bennet sack. Ray Ban sunnies, Goldie Rox burger ring… and most importantly; a Silver May dragonfly.

Most of my day was spent scooting around between meetings and picking up last minute pieces before heading to Dallas for a conference.
But all that changed when I found an excellent loitering spot.
This “wild” jumper must be doing wicked things to my head.
Fight the man, man!
