My Favorite Find of the Week
So we are heading to New York early next month to celebrate my 35th birthday, sans kids. Some dear friends from Montreal are driving down to meet us and my sister will be there and excited is an understatement.
One of my besties who is joining us sent over this awesome web site started by a young couple from Australia who are living in NYC and sharing their favorite places to eat, shop, drink and everything, at a glance.
I have been to New York numerous times and spent a few months living there in 2001, but there are always so many new places to discover and this site will definitely be bookmarked as I pull together my list of things to-do.
We are staying at the Soho Grand and my birthday dinner is booked at Cole’s. A trip to the Mario Badescu day spa is on the agenda, as are stops at ABC (mainly for inspiration, I love pretty things), Momofuku (never been), Eataly (dreaming of their gelato and rooftop patio), the Chelsea Market (never been), Fish’s Eddy (fun, affordable finds for the home) and of course, all the way uptown to Ladurée (my mom only agreed to watch the kids if I brought her back macarons).
I know it sounds crazy, but I often have a hard time shopping in New York…I find everything to either be a) exorbitantly out of my budget or b) something I can find in Los Angeles. So clearly, I am doing it wrong. If you have any suggestions or favorite fashion finds, please share in the comments!
Have a great weekend ~
