Boutique: E. Tittlemouse & Co.

E. Tittlemouse & Co.

The recent migration of new residents flocking to Jersey City has brought lots of interesting developments to the city. Often dubbed “the 6th borough”, my hometown is steadily coming out of its shadow of the NYC limelight. Among these sprouting local establishments is E. Tittlemouse & Co. and it has easily become one of my new favorite boutiques offering up thrifted designer pieces, carefully curated by Napoleon, the dapperest nice guy you’ll ever meet.

Work Spot: The Warehouse Cafe

Work never gets done at home. As much as I plan a day to get down and dirty with my laptop and notebook, there’s always a drawer waiting to be cleaned, a bed longing to be slept in, or a favorite show asking to be watched. But since starting sewbie.com I’ve adopted a whole new perspective to business and doing work – when it’s your own, there’s no time to fuck around. That said, I’m always searching for places to plop down with a cool beverage and get shit done.

I was introduced to The Warehouse Cafe by Jersey City street style blog, Downtown, Natch’s Marinell after brunch and our mini photoshoot. Quaint decor, good selection of coffee and teas, yummy snacks, free wi-fi, outdoor seating, and the day we went there was a DJ playing classic soul. Yes, please. After that I proclaimed this place my go-to spot when I need to get out of the house and actually accomplish something. I already had another meeting there with my friend Chloe last week. There’s no time to waste!

They serve Intelligentsia coffee.

But I’m definitely a tea girl.

Gorgeous day. We ended up outside.

Fast forward a few weeks to my meeting with Yosemite Sam, aka Chloe, aka the designer behind Clo Hair Bows and this blog!

Refreshing beverages. Check.

Even the decor in the bathroom was cute.

Greenery outside the cafe.

Bottom of the middle column. THE FILIPINO TAMALE. ‘Nuff said.
