So excited that my Hoboken City Guide was published on the influential blog Design*Sponge this week on 1-1-11! Focusing on independent artsy businesses in the area, and also adding in all the extra fab places and things about this great town.
Gorgeous window display at Luxe face & bodyI had lots of fun, re-discovering some lovely shopfronts and design stores as I researched. Indulging in the sights and taking photos of my favorite places along the way.
I stopped to admire buildings such as the one Bella Ro can be found in. Glorious balconies and ironwork designs.
Try the Bubble Tea and Pumpkin Tea Scones at Maroon
Stopping by to drink tea and chat to the local coffee shop clientele.
AND most of all finding yet another excuse to visit my favorite local design store – M Avery Designs where I have promised myself some sewing lessons this Spring.
