Hi splashy readers (inserts wave) and then proceeds to hit the Shmoney dance. Haha. I recently attended the Better Booze Festival presented by U.S. Veg Corp at Center548. The U.S. Veg Corp is the team behind the groundbreaking NYC Vegetarian Food Festival aiming to educate consumers about vegan food, beer, liquor and wine. Being the foodie that I am I was invited to the vegan brunch. Hey now! This was my first vegan brunch so I was excited, curious and hungry.

Some of the assorted spread is listed above on the menu. I tried every dish to have a memorable experience. I really enjoyed the Monte Cristo sandwiches, potatoes and cranberry scones.

This is my colorful plate accompanied by a screwdriver. This experience allowed me to get out of my normal brunch comfort zone. I am glad that I tried a vegan brunch.

Here is a display of some of the food that was served.

There were two floors of food, drinks and health and wellness vendors. After having brunch on the third floor I went to the second floor to taste the various drink vendors products. I must say that Owl’s Brew Coco-Lada mixed with FAIR vodka was a smooth and refreshing blend. It had a pineapple and tropical fruit taste to it super de-lic-ous. The representative from The Whitecliff Vineyard was very informative and down to Earth. I enjoyed the crispness of the White Rosé wine. The DOWNEAST cider house raspberry and original flavor was very good as well.

These potatoes were scrumptious.

I loved the decor of the setup of the food at the Better Booze Festival. I concur with the slogan only good things inside. There was a game section that instantly reminded me of my college years Twister most definitely, Connect Four, Uno, bean bag toss and other throwback games.

I couldn’t resist taking a picture on this roll out by BALLS Vodka. All around fun day filled with great food, drinks, people and laughs thank you for having me!

New York Fashion Week
September 9, 2014

It is Fashion Week in New York!!! The hottest designers present the new trends for 2015. Between the many pop up shops, runway shows, red carpets, after parties, celebrity spottings and the realization of mapping out your events because it is impossible to attend them all.

I for one love to dress and add my own “splash” if I may to anything I step foot in to show out in. I love to be comfortable in whatever I put on and I own my look. Depending on the look I have in my head it will determine my accessories.

image

I love vibrant colors and mixing vintage fashion with pieces that are in style currently. Whether I am dressed down or dressed up I love versatility. 

image

Dressing is a form of representing yourself without having to speak. The way you dress is a conversation starter and many times over breaks the ice for others.

image

I will enjoy all of the hoopla and excitement NYFW provides I hope the same for all of my splashy readers. Paint the town.
