Stunna Lip Paint is everything people have been raving about, for the price of $24. With a little amount of product I’ve achieved a perfect red lip every time without any lipliner. Universal wear was right! All the women I’ve seen with this lipstick on are absolutely Stunna! With its smooth application and paraben free formula I can say this lipstick has been my favorite go to for completing date night looks. However, the red can transfer to glassware, food, other lips, etc so plan accordingly!
Martha’s Country Bakery is in 4 locations throughout New York City. They have over 30 cakes on display that can be sold in slices as well. Cupcakes, strudels, hot/cold drinks, gelato, pies, and cake pops are all on the menu so there’s a little something for everyone’s sweet tooth. The bakery can get crowded as there’s so many people coming in for a slice of sweetness, so plan a wait but definitely worth it! My favorite is the Berry Napolean combining fruits with a delicious pastry.
This foundation really lasts all day! It’s also really easy to remove with just a makeup wipe. I love the matte natural finish, and a thin application gives me the organic look I like. I’ve seen ladies with dry skin AND oily skin love it. With up to 24 different shades, there’s a good chance you’ll find one that suits your skin tone. While there might be better foundations out there for a lot more money, this one is hard to beat at just $14.95 for the 1oz bottle.
-321 Ice Cream Shop has been the best ice cream spot I’ve found in my 21 years of living in NYC! Nitrogen ice cream is amazing as people say it is. The ice cream here is thick and flavorful with many unique flavors. The lines are always long here so plan for a wait, but the delicious ice cream is definitely worth it. The ice cream also makes for great instragrammable pictures.
The Amore Matte Lip Crème in Loved is my everyday go-to choice of lipstick. Even if I don’t put on anything else, I always leave the house with this color on. This lipstick dries on a second after application to a matte natural finish. It’s lasted me up to 12 hours without having to reapply. The wand has a nice vanilla smell to it as well as a flat brush for easy application. The color will minimally transfer to objects your lips come in contact with, and did I mention it is only $8.95?
The Keledz Selfie Stick is the only selfie stick you’ll need for all your high quality pictures. It expands to 63 inches, is compatible with Bluetooth, and includes its owm lumix light for amazing lighting for your selfies. There is also a 3 legged-stand that allows you to take pictures from far without holding the selfie stick. I’m so happy I came across this selfie stick for pictures I can mask as professional!
Alice’s Tea Cup has a variety of scones, crepes, small sandwiches, cupcakes, and cakes, with a separate menu for their huge collection of teas. They are open for breakfast lunch and dinner, with different menus for each. The scones are served with amazing jams and the teas are served in cute teapots and teacups. You can also get a combination of sweets for big groups such as the Nibble, Mad hatter, and Jabberwocky.
Dani’s House of Pizza have amazing BIG slices of pizza for only $3. I usually get two slices for myself at any other pizzeria but when I come to Dani’s one is more than enough. They have a wide range of topping’s but I love sticking to the classic cheese slice. Dani’s is also popular for their pesto slice which is also $3. With just the right combination of bread, cheese, and sauce, this has been the most delicious slice of pizza I’ve tasted in all of New York.
A local fav in Astoria! The Cornflake Chicken and Waffles are popular. Or try the Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers. Zagat says "Get your comfort on" and Chris Stang at Infatuation calls it "campy" and "a lot of fun" with cereal on most dishes but sure to give you a stomach ache after. They have a movie wall all day which is great entertainment, as well as a comedic greeter who tells jokes while you wait to be seated. With 2,000 Yelp reviews (4-stars), expect long lines on weekends. Cash-only.
