Jannika Rask of Neue Reveal poses with wine in Lowe East Side, New York City • essellesse, a lazy luxury lifestyle blog based in San Francisco

Last time I was in New York, I spent the day with my friend Jannika! We killed some time at her amazing apartment in the Lower East Side. Her blog is one of my absolute favs & I check it daily for recipe inspo!!

Seriously, check it out. She has some of the best taste in style, music, wellness, & FOOD! While we were there, she put together the most effortless yet impressive, delicious spread. We sipped white Burgundy, took 537934895734 photos, & caught up over some rad tunes. In fact, her spotify playlists are designed for pilates & cooking and SO good.

Neue Reveal healthy “Anytime” Spread

Jannika Rask of Neue Reveal makes caprese in Lowe East Side, New York City • essellesse, a lazy luxury lifestyle blog based in San Francisco
Works for lazy lunch, dinner for you or cocktail hour for two, mid-day snack, late night treat and everything in-between. When you’re not in the mood to cook a full meal but you want something that’s easy to make, fun to eat and won’t make a major mess. And is shareable and can be picked at. Something fresh, crisp and light mixed with something salty, nutty and creamy. Enjoy!! – @neuereveal
