Shelley’s personal pleasures
This is a mixture of all the personal perhaps, non touristy things and places I frequent that I think my guests would love to experience
This place reminds me of all the great food I ate visiting my grandmother in Trinidad.. Authentic down to the sing song accent of the staff and the accent I immediately affect when I order my 6 Doubles( 2 pieces of fried dough with curry channa , pepper sauce and tamarind sauce)The roti is amazing and the have all the West Indian sodas you can imagine . They have seating but I always take my good to go so I can lick my fingers and hum happily in private.

The absolute best Roti I have ever had. It reminds me of my Aunty Shirley”s shop I’m Five Rivers Arouca in TNT. They have Aloo pie ,Kurma, red plums, red mangoes, Crix crackers... all the West Indian snack delicacies. It just makes me nostalgic . But I take it to go. There is no seating at this location

This place is MAGICAL!!!. A beautiful shop of frocks , tops , dresses , pants wrapped and tucked and designed (if your lucky styled) by the gorgeous owner Debbie. Just stepping into the boutique transports you to a world where beauty is soulful energy sometimes bright and bold patterned and sometimes floral washed and muted. This is my favorite place to shop for special pieces.

I was introduced to pole dancing 8 years ago in a 2 hour Introductory teaser class at S Factor. 8 years later and it still sparks joy, and is an amazing core and upper body work out. Long term The studio is a tranquil space where women can connect and support each other. Short term it is the most fun Pilates based workout set to amazing music and sensuous movement.

Shopping
NYC is known for its numerous shopping locations with just as many price points. Here I will add my favs. The highs and the lows of it .
Here it is My addiction front and center.., discount fashion clothing and accessories ..They even have a home section. They open at 7:00 am so a fashion addict like myself can score a piece from designers like Rick Owens , Marni or Ralph Lauren before I get to work. It is located by the World trade center museum . A beautiful Beautiful, reflective space that still tugs at my heart.
