Yankee Stadium Goes Burger Crazy

Anna Osgoodby NYC Living :: Yankee Stadium Goes Burger Crazy

It's officially garlic cheesies season! Aka to the rest of the world as baseball season! ;-) While I'm not totally sure I'd call myself an actual baseball fan (I'm much more of a football girl) I've definitely found appreciation for the stadium grub

Yankee Stadium loves throwing a few curveballs in the mix each year with its offerings and this year they went far left field for their burger menu. <-- See what I did there?! Haha.

Being the true burger and ridiculous food lover that I am, I had to see what these babies were all about! So without further ado, let me introduce you to this year's line-up.

Double-Double Burger

The Double-Double is just about as tall as a NYC skyscraper. This sucker was hugeeee and could probably feed your whole family at the game. This takes the term double cheeseburger to a whole new level with two grilled cheese sandwiches as the buns. Try it if you dare!

Barnyard Wedding Burger

I fell in love at first sight with this burger creation as soon as I heard hashbrown. The Barnyard Wedding burger is a burger, topped with fried chicken, and then a hashbrown all on a pretzel bun. Ridiculous sounding? Maybe, but holy burger it was delicious. I will be back for another wedding...

G.O.A.T Burger

Meet the G.O.A.T Burger aka Greatest of All Time Burger. I grabbed a bite of this beauty that is a burger topped with pastrami, crispy bacon, and some tasty condiments all on a pretzel bun. The flavors on this one are dynamite and it's definitely not your average burger.

I was pretty pumped to check these guys out and I have to say they totally lived up to the ridiculous combinations I like to see at stadiums! They're not your cheapest options ranging from $16-20 just for the burger, but we are in NYC after all. If you want to check any of these guys out at your next game you can find them at the concessions behind section 115!

When Kate Spade launches a home pop-up shop in the city there are 2 guarantees..

  1. There will definitely be some serious cuteness going on
  2. That I definitely have to check it out

So I did just that so I could report back to you lovelies!

The SoHo pop-up definitely didn't disappoint either! I love Kate Spade because it has the perfect combination of elegance that is both girly and colorful -- hello Anna style!

I'm such a sucker for bright and fun throw pillows! They are one of the easiest ways to refresh a space without spending a fortune on a major piece.

I could not get enough of this table setting! While I certainly couldn't fit this whole set-up in my tiny little studio, I was definitely daydreaming! Maybe one day ;-)

Their kitchen decor was so fun and I loved the mugs. Plus, side note.. I'm totally digging the colored gum balls in the glass containers, what a fun idea!

Their staged living rooms were really nice. I loved the use of the neutral furniture with a pop of color in the accents and artwork.

I also loved all of the adorable prints the shop had -- the perfect addition to any gallery wall.

Lily Sage of Sage Beauty is back for another Blogging Through the City post! In today's guest post, Lily is taking you along for the ride of one of her latest NYC shopping adventures. Keep reading to find out some of her fav finds!

I’m so excited to take all of you fabulous readers along with me to one of my favorite stores for all things gorgeous. Anthropologie is a store that combines beauty, fashion, home decor, and so much more all in one spot. Lucky for you, you don't have to live in NYC to take advantage of this gem either.

The Beauty

I always discover new luxury brands at Anthropologie, in addition to some of my favorites that are always part of my routine.  For skincare I always pick up a few items from Mario Badescu when I’m there.  The Drying Lotion is one of the most iconic products in the line and is adored by bloggers and beauty editors alike.  Using Salicylic Acid and Calamine it will erase breakouts overnight.  The Glycolic Foaming Cleanser exfoliates and is great to incorporate into your routine twice a week for a brightening boost and to unclog pores.  The Facial Spray is great as a toner and to refresh the skin anytime throughout the day. I always carry this with me when I’m traveling.

The Royal Apothic Hand Cream in Holland Park has a light fresh scent that reminds me of the scent left behind from an impromptu London sunshower.  This is great to keep in your purse or next to your bed to soothe dry hands.

During my most recent visit to Anthropologie I discovered Isabey Eau de Parfum in Fleur Nocturne.  This sensual floral fragrance is a blend of white peach,  jasmine, and vanilla which reminds me of a warm summer night.

The Home

Anthropologie has a magical selection of home decor options that will give a colorful and sophisticated touch to every room in your apartment.  Whether it’s retro-inspired aprons, unique cookbooks, wine glasses, dishes, candles, or personalized mugs there is something for everyone,  and you will have a myriad of choices to inspire you.

As engagement/graduation/wedding season approaches Anthropologie is also a great place to find the perfect gift.

I love giving books as gifts,  and as engagement and wedding season is quickly approaching and a fun cookbook or some creative kitchen essentials are memorable presents.

Tea pots are classic but the floral motif gives a fun retro vibe.

These gorgeous coasters immediately caught my eye and will add an unique and chic element to your table.

These gorgeous tumblers also come in green and blue, but pink is my favorite color.  They are perfect for summer cocktails but I like to get a bit more creative and use them as candle holders or for my bathroom to hold makeup brushes or even cotton rounds!

 As a writer I love collecting planners and blank notebooks, and these were just too irresistible.

The Fashion

As soon as I walked into the store I saw three dresses that I need to add to my wardrobe.  I love the clothes at Anthropologie because they range from casual and cozy sweaters to everyday office staples to statement dresses that work season after season.  I see the brand as feminine and fashion forward.  This is where your boho-glam, inner fashionista can come out in full bloom. 

This dress is an incredibly versatile piece because the neutral colors can work all year round, the length is appropriate for any occasion, and it can be dressed up with a statement platform heels and a belt,  or dress down with leather jacket. 

Neutral blush tones are a big trend for this spring, and the metallic bronze color can easily transition from spring to summer as the evening bag that goes with everything. 

I hope you enjoyed this shopping excursion!

Blogging Through the City :: Lily Sage of Sage Beauty

Blogging Through the CityAnna OsgoodbyComment
Anna Osgoodby NYC Living :: Blogging Through the City :: Lily Sage of Sage Beauty

I'm so excited to kick-off a new feature of blog called "Blogging Through the City" highlighting other awesome bloggers in the big apple. I got to meet the truly delightful Lily Sage of Sage Beauty at Lovely Happenings' Fall Event and I'm so excited to introduce you to her

AO: Tell us about yourself! How long have you been blogging and why did you decide to start Sage Beauty?

LS: I have been writing Sage Beauty for two and half years. I have always had a passion for beauty, fashion, and writing, and I have been a makeup artist and beauty expert for most of my career.  So I decided to create a blog where I could share all my tips and help women look and feel fabulous. Since I started the blog I also share my love of knitting, places I travel to, personal observations, and recipes in addition to beauty and style.

AO: How long have you lived in city and what are some of your favorite things about being a NYC blogger?

LS: I have lived in NYC for ten years! I’m proud to hit my decade mark this year.  I fall in love with the city more and more every year because it has an abundance of art, fashion, and music. To me, New York is a place that fosters creativity and originality. Being a blogger in NYC has allowed me to be find out about the newest trends first, to meet the people who have created my favorite brands, and to not be afraid to try new things and share it all with my readers.

AO: Do you have any favorite experiences you’ve had while being a blogger that you may not have had otherwise?

LS: One of my favorite experiences was meeting Miko Branch, one of the co-founders of Miss Jessie’s! It’s a brand I love and it was such an amazing experience to learn from her. I admire her so much as a female entrepreneur and leader in the beauty industry. 

AO: Where do you find inspiration for your blog? Do you have any favorite posts you have written?

LS: Many of my post ideas come from my everyday life or a beauty question from a client or friend.  When I discover a product I really love I can’t wait to share it, or when I keep getting asked about recommendations for specific products (foundation or eye cream), or shopping tips I put it in a blog post because I’m sure other women would love to have that knowledge as well. I also love writing about products that are unexpected. I recently did a blog post on the benefits of sleeping on a silk pillowcase. I have seen such a difference in my skin and hair since I started using it.

AO: You share so many amazing beauty and fashion tips on your blog. Where are some of your favorite places to shop in the city or to pick up items for your beauty DIYs?

LS: I love doing beauty DIY posts because I grew up learning so many fun and effective homemade beauty treatments from my grandmother. For DIY posts my first stop is usually Whole Foods to pick up natural and organic ingredients that are great for head to toe beauty such as Coconut Oil or Shea Butter. When I am shopping for beauty products I love going to Blue Mercury which carries many of my favorite beauty brands, and sometimes I discover new or hard to find brands there as well.

AO: You have such fun style and your makeup always looks just gorgeous. If you had to pick 3 of your top beauty or fashion tips what would they be?

LS: Thank you for the compliment ☺ That’s such a great question! My top three tips would be:

  • There is a perfect shade of red lipstick for everyone. Don’t be afraid try out a bold red lip; it’s classic, polished, and it easily transitions from day to night.
  • Beautifully maintained brows are a must. They frame the face and give an instant lift. Your eye makeup will also look better. 
  • We wear a lot of black in NYC, but I love wearing color all year round. Some easy ways to add some color into your wardrobe are with your accessories. If I’m wearing a little black dress I accessorize with a printed clutch or colorful heels.

AO: You are just fantastic and I know my readers will also LOVE your blog as much as I do. Where can they connect with you?

AO: You’re also going to be sharing a fun guest blog coming up that I can’t wait for. Can you give my readers a little sneak peek of what’s to come?

LS: I’m so excited to share with your readers one of my favorite stores to shop at for home décor ideas, beauty, and fashion all in one post, along with some tips for adding a bit of glamour to your bathroom.  Stay tuned!
