Breakfast at Tiffany’s – The Blue Box Cafe Experience

Shopping and brunching

When Reed’s family came in for Easter, we were able to squeeze in a trip to the Tiffany flagship store for some shopping, brunch at the Blue Box Cafe, and a tour of the on-site workshop. It was such a fun day, so I thought I would share our experience on the blog!

First we had brunch on the fourth floor. How cute is this decor? Everything was perfectly on theme from the gorgeous blue walls and chairs to the Tiffany china on the table. The Blue Box Cafe even serves their own tea blend – which is delicious by the way.

Breakfast comes with an adorable fruit salad with tiny flowers and croissants while lunch is served with your choice of three appetizers. I chose the truffled eggs – which were delicious – Gramma had a lobster salad, Jill had avocado toast, and Brent had a waffle. We were all very happy with the food.

After the main course, we were pretty full but just had to order the Tiffany box cake for dessert. How adorable, right? It’s a lemon funfetti cake with buttercream frosting. Overall the service was great and the atmosphere made it really special. If you can get a reservation I would definitely recommend visiting the Blue Box Cafe.

After brunch we were invited to go down to the private salon to try on jewelry. The associates were so helpful and sweet – they treated us to champagne and we were able to view all of these gorgeous, elaborate pieces from emeralds and rubies, to pink and yellow diamonds.

The salon was a beautiful room and relaxing break from the busy floors full of people shopping. I also loved seeing the sketches, CADs, and showcase pieces. Here are some of the rings we tried on and a custom necklace designed for Greta Gerwig.

After that, we had a tour of the workshop where the amazing artisans were working on hand crafted pieces. Some of them were for the Jean Schlumberger collection that is being celebrated this month and they were so intricate and beautiful! The amount of detail, effort, and thought that goes into the work there was seriously impressive and made me even more of a fan. Photos weren’t allowed here unfortunately.

It was such a lovely day with our family. The biggest thanks to Tiffany for such a wonderful experience and making us feel like royalty!

Sunday Riley Pop Up Experience – The Influencer Foundation

A fun blogger event!

Anastasia and I went to a blogger preview yesterday for the Sunday Riley Pop Up (which opens today)! The event is for the new foundation launch and we had such a great time! The whole space felt like a playground with tons of fun props, confetti showers, a giant slide, and a candy bar. It was packed as there were Instagram-worthy shots all around and tons of bloggers mingling. The founder, Sunday Riley, was even there!

The new foundation is called The Influencer and it comes in 20 shades. It officially launched two days ago and is available at Sephora ($42 for 1.08 oz). The formula is described as a clean and long-wearing with medium to full coverage and a satin-matte finish. I absolutely love that it comes with a pump too. We were able to get shade matched at the party and received a full size foundation to test out!

I’m the lightest shade (per usual) which has golden undertones. The artist actually tried four shades on me – I think the range has a great variety of depth and undertones. We also received samples of U.F.O. Ultra Clarifying Facial Oil (which I actually had never tried) and Good Genes, which is one of the best Lactic Acid treatments I’ve used. I’m so thankful and overwhelmed by how generous the team at the pop up was!

Sunday Riley is one of my very favorite skincare brands – I love the Luna Sleeping Oil and I’ve raved about the C.E.O. Moisturizer on Instagram here and way back on the blog here. So even though I’m not a huge foundation person, I’m really excited to try this one! I hope it lives up to the natural-looking and lightweight-feeling claims. Check out my first impression next week!

The pop up is open through Sunday at 201 Mulberry Street here in NYC. Are you excited about the new foundation? What’s your favorite Sunday Riley product??
