Footwear: Nike Air Force 1 x Hurrache Hybrid White/White/Ice

I'm not really into the sneaker scene, but it since some of my friends have asked me to post on rare and upcoming kicks here it is. In regards to that we have here the Nike Hurrache Air Force 1 x Hurrache Hybrid in White/White/Ice to be released sometime in the near future. These will also come in other colors like Royal Blue/Scream Green. I have to admit these do look HOT! As a sneaker fan or collector I would really have no place to say anything, but as someone who enjoys fashion I would have to say that these would go well with almost anything in your wardrobe. Their nice, clean, and fresh. I'll post an update when these hit the streets to inform all the fans out there. However, I have confirmed that the release date for the Nike Hurrache's in Royal Blue and Scream Green (125$) will hit the stores on April 11th, 2009.

Sweets/Snacks: Baked By Melissa 529 Broadway NYC

Who loves cupcakes!? Well for those of you that do this is a treat for you. As I was walking back to Broadway from the Tokidoki store yesterday I happened to pass by this little shop and glanced at it. What I saw was a long line of people waiting for something so, I thought I'd go see what this was about. Baked By Melissa! After doing some research about this little shop of sweets. I found out that the store serves cupcakes, but not just any cupcakes. The store serves bite size servings(A little larger than a quarter, yes I mean quarter 25 cents). I myself, have not had the luxury to actually try this yet, but I do well intend to do so in the near future. The store offers 7 different flavors. They are; Cookie Dough, Red Velvet, Cookies & Cream, S'mores, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Peanut Butter Cup, and Tie-Dye. Below, I have provided some pictures so you can drool over them! Enjoy!

Fashion/Toys: Tokidoki NYC Capsule Store 176 Spring Street

So, here is the latest news if you haven't heard about Tokidoki yet. I myself, have only recently been introduced to this brand. Therefore, here is a little background information on the Tokidoki. They started being noticed around Spring 2006 when their first print of bags were released. Partnered up with LeSportsac to produce cute, yet fashionable purses and bags. As time went by they started to ventured into different lines and even more collaborations with other well known name brands. Here is a little list of their recent partnerships with the names we know about such as; Hello Kitty, Onistukas, Levis, New Era, BearBrick among others. Tokidoki is growing fast and on opening day there was a large line for fans to meet the one and only Simone Legno(Creator and head Designer). I also waited in that line to some products signed. While the store itself is very small it has a lot to offer. If you like cute clothing, bags, assessories, and even the latest fad in collecting Vinyl toys this is the place for you. If your ever in the Soho area in NYC take a little walk and head down to Tokidoki. Who knows? You may end up being a fan also!

Sneakers: Classic Kicks 298 Elizabeth Street

By request again, and talking about the latest in footwear collectibles and fashion. Classic Kicks is one of the well known sneaker stores in NYC. While the location may be unsuspecting it does have its charm. Taking you back to old school styles/retro styles. They have a large selection and the interior design is something to take a glance at. If your into sneakers and old school styles like Vans, Nike, Converse, Puma, and the likes you should really stop by just to check it out.

Music: Utada Hikaru - This Is The One *New Album*

Utada Hikaru's new English album released March 24th 2009 in the US. This is her 3rd English album and it is a hit! This album is refreshingly original with a touch of modern R&B. As I listened to the album I see how far she has surpassed her previous albums with this new installment. We all know of her past hit song; "First Love". I have to say that in this album I felt that same nostalgic feeling from "First Love" with my new favorite song; "This One (Crying Like A Child)". I hope everyone that is a fan will stop by their local store and pick up this great album. Enjoy!

Sweets: Dylan's Candy Bar' 1011 Third Ave NYC

Sweets anyone? Heard of Ralph Lauren? Well, his daughter Dylan Lauren, the founder of this lovely candy store has created a new experience. Here you can enjoy all your childhood fantasies. The interior design is creative along with all the other decorations inside the store. Walking into this store is like walking back in time, back to your childhood. You can literally find some sweets that you have had since you were a child. With 3 floors of fun filled excitement, surprises, and memories I highly suggest anyone that enjoys sweets to drop by for an amazing experience. Come in enjoy, reminisce, and indulge your sweetest fantasies!

Restaurants: Mesa Grill NYC Located at 102 5th Ave.

As requested from a friend that wanted to know more about fine dining in New York City. I would like to start by saying that this restaurant is owned by Bobby Flay. (Yes the one and the same person that many people have seen on The Food Network) Here we have from the Mesa Grill NYC an absolutely delicious entree. ( Grilled Mahi-Mahi shown above) Although the portions are not as large as many would hope it to be the quality is top notch. They also have an extensive wine list which you can ask your server if you are not sure which would compliment your dishes. The deserts are also amazing in taste and in creativity. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone that enjoys fine dining as well as willing to fork out the money for the meal, as this is a costly experience.

First Post

Well, this is my first post on my E-Blog. I have been trying to get MySQL to run on my system. However, it seems that it is not going my way. I would just like to inform people that happen to read this blog, that it will mainly contain information and opinion on Food, Electronics, and Fashion. I think that is all for today.
