The Bakeshop by Woops!

As you know I recently visited thee Cooper Jacklich in New York City last week & to say the least had a wonderful time. I've visited Manhattan before and have always had the desire to check out Brooklyn but never had the chance in the past due to crazy scheduling. My colleagues have always shared such cool stories/photos about hidden gems in Williamsburg so my eyes lit up when I realized I was not only on my way to New York City, but I was on my way to stay in Brooklyn for an entire week. I stayed with him and his 4 roommates who are all individually beautiful human beings, & made my stay extra lovely. One creates beautiful music (check it out here) & one is a filmmaker (check him out here).
My flight landed around midnight on Thursday so by the time my driver got me to the apartment it was 1am. Coop was super sweet and walked with me to this corner pizza place Sizzle Pie. I got a slice, walked back to his place, and slept until 2pm the next day. As much as I'd like to call myself a morning person, no one likes sleep as much as I do. Traveling across the country and dealing with a time change was the perfect excuse to "forget" to set an alarm (sleep is important guys). Naturally, I woke up needing coffee and fresh air. We got up, got ready, and headed out for the afternoon.
First up on my list of Brooklyn spots to visit... The Bakeshop by Woops! I'm so happy we were able to visit this adorable little coffee shop and you must check it out if you're in the area. Cooper ordered his standard black coffee (typically I'd order the same) but I heard their chai lattes were to die for... it was absolutely delicious and I would've had another if I had more time. We sat together for a little while, laughing and chatting, enjoying each others company. I haven't felt what I felt in the coffee shop in quite a long time. It was my first day back in my favorite city in the world, with someone who literally brightens every day of mine.
I'll be posting more about my trip with some fun ootd content so keep an eye out on instagram for updates!
I'm sure Cooper would love it if you connected with him on instagram >> @thecooperj
- I also received a few messages requesting a tutorial for my every day makeup look, I'll definetely create that as soon as possible :)
Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
