Heaven on Earth

Upper East Side, July 23 / 2016

So, I just wanted to go to a favorite place here. Somewhere I could feel happy and safe, but I realize I didn't have this place here in NYC - yet. Maybe Central Park.. but wich part of it? 'Cause the park is soo big! Or maybe some museum.. but it's a saturday and it's summer - they are all full of tourists - no way!

I took an Uber to Central Park in the East side, right on the middle of it.. some festival was happening there - I thought of going but wasn't in the mood for it. So when I tried to find a Starbucks on Google Maps, I found my oasis! I mean.. a Maison Ladurée - a few blocks from where I was 😍😍😍 

I couldn't believe it! And I thought.. yeah! Maybe this is my favorite place here - in this bitch crazy city. A piece of Europe in the middle of the Upper East Side - so beautiful, classic architecture style, french music, french girls speaking french... oui! Suddenly I'm happy and peacefull.

And suddenly (again) starts to play Tom Jobim on the radio..


"Quero a vida sempre assim com você perto de mimAté o apagar da velha chama
E eu que era triste
Descrente deste mundo
Ao encontrar você eu conheci
O que é felicidade, meu amor..

Quiet nights of quiet stars
Quiet chords from my guitar
Floating on the silence that surrounds us
Quiet thoughts and quiet dreams
Quiet walks by quiet streams
And a window looking on the mountains
And the sea, so lovely

This where I want to be
Here with you so close to me
Until the final flicker of life's ember
I was lost and lonely
Believing life was only
A bitter tragic joke I have found in you
the meaning of existence oh, my love.."


These photos are from the other NYC Ladurée though - a bigger one that just oppened - at Soho.. have you been there? It's lovely! 
They have a backyard, great for bridal/ baby showers.. or just a girl friends special meeting - you need to go!


These photos are from Oct, 2016 - look at the Halloween decor there!
As you can see - the outfit is totally winter..
