Le District

Food halls have taken NYC by storm.  It all started with Eataly, an Italian food hall located in the Flatiron District and now there are a dozen one-stop shop spots to satisfy your cravings.  My favorite food halls in the city are Gotham West Market, Plaza Food Hall and Gansevoort Market.  I recently went to […]

Bushwick Brooklyn

The first time I went to Bushwick, it was 1:00 AM and I went to one of those warehouse raves.  Let me explain….my girlfriends and I got invited to one of those warehouse raves in Bushwick; you know like in that GIRLS episode?  Normally, I would not even entertain such an idea because a) I’m […]

Rockaway Beach Update

The first time I went to Rockaway was in September of 2012 (read here).  Little did I know that in less than two months later, Hurricane Sandy would virtually wipe out the Rockaways.  That first trip back in 2012 was prompted by my gluttony.  I desperately wanted to try this new taco shop that was getting […]

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

The South has the Kentucky Derby, the Brits have every other fabulous event that calls for a fascinator, and New York City has the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.  My best girlfriend Grace aka Mama is Haute, had four tickets to this year’s polo match and invited me to join for a girl’s day of drinking […]

Staycation

When you live in a city that is as amazing as New York City, you can take it for granted.  I’m guilty of this; as a native New Yorker, I’m inclined to discover new cities across the US and abroad.  When the weather gets warmer, New Yorkers flee for the weekend.  I decided one weekend […]

New Whitney Museum

The new Whitney Museum just opened on May 1st at its new home in the Meatpacking District.  To say that the new Whitney is totally different from the old one is an under statement.  The new Whitney is airy, clean, modern and has outdoor space which in New York is a feat unto itself.  The space […]

Stick With Me Sweets

I’m one of those chicks who needs to have a piece of chocolate every day.  My day wouldn’t feel complete without a sweet ending to a meal.  Last weekend, my sister and I were gallivanting in Soho when we decided that we needed something sweet after our semi-healthy brunch (read here).  We stumbled upon Stick […]

Gansevoort Market

One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is to discover new spots in the city.  My sister and I went to check out Gansevoort Market, a new food hall in the Meatpacking District.  I’m a huge fan of food halls like Gotham West Market and Plaza Food Hall because you can literally […]

Fall For the City

My girlfriend pointed out to me recently that I’m in love with the Fall in the City right now and it couldn’t be more true (follow me on instagram to see).  Yesterday I just had to take a walk through Central Park because right now the leaves are at their peak.  I entered on 60th […]

The Perfect Fall Day

What do I want to do on a perfect Fall day?  Go on an amazing hike and discover the Hudson Valley of course!  Last weekend, I wanted to get outside and be in nature.  It felt more like Summer than Fall because it was 80 degrees outside.  None-the-less, the leaves were already changing and I […]

Red Hook, BK Update

The first time I went to Red Hook, Brooklyn was in April 2012 before Hurricane Sandy (read here).  It was a part of Brooklyn that I had never been to and it was an up and coming neighborhood.  When I went in 2012, it felt like I was miles and miles away from the city […]

Class Pass

About a month ago, after an intense class at Barry’s Bootcamp, I overheard the other ladies in the locker room talking about Class Pass.  They were discussing all the different classes they’ve tried and which ones were their favorites.  I was intrigued and asked them what Class Pass was and how it worked.  For $99 […]
