Little Eden

๐Ÿ“Soho: Last weekend I found myself back in the city with my friend Amaya (you should follow her on ig @lookingforamaya !!), who knows where to find the city's coolest spots like nobody else.

The first stop we hit was the MILLY Popup in Soho. Its one of the most beautiful stores Iโ€™ve ever been in, from the clothes to the lights to the huge arch adorned with flowers. Big plus: everyone in there was so nice and informative. Even bigger plus: Leandra Medine (my hero!) recently visited the shop as well.

Snacks were the next stop: By Chloe. Its all vegan and plant-based, and we were just stopping for ice cream, but I desperately wanted to stay and try more! Since we went right before Halloween, we got the limited-edition version of their famous push-up pops. Don't be fooled by the black color, it was a creamsicle! That definitely freaked out both of our taste buds. They have 7 locations in NY alone (including a sweets shop!) but I went to the one on Lafayette Street.

Next up was the brand-new Bulletin store in Nolita. The cult favorite already has a shop in Williamsburg, but I'm devoted this new one. They'll even give you a free tote bag if you follow them on Instagram! 

When I was in LA I visited Junior High, which instantly sucked me in with its feminist approach and adorable merchandise, including bags, pins and patches, stickers, and double life as a community/art space. Bulletin, for me, is the perfect NY alternative. See for yourself below! Visit this store at 27 Prince Street, New York, NY.

School has been insane lately, but I'll be back in the city asap! Until then...

hi again!! these were taken at a few different areas of the city that I can't wait to talk about. The picture above was taken in seaport, which is kind of a lesser known area but one of my absolute favorites. It has a lot of history to it and beautiful cobblestone streets, and its super clean and has a lot of outdoor restaurants and shops that take up entire blocks. Its also right next to the water, which will give you the best breeze in the city this summer, guaranteed.

I'm still **very much** on board the pajama pants trend, and this is the first time I've worn it with sneakers (+ my first time wearing comfy shoes in the city since my birth).

These pictures were taken at a new discovery, the Metrograph. Its a super old theater right by Chinatown on Ludlow St, but in addition to being an ultra cool cinema with brand-new and classic movies, it as a commissary restaurant with a simple, light menu. I got the apple salad and it was one of the best salads I've had in a minute, plus the decor is very old hollywood.

jazzed about produce, as always.

All of these pictures (except the doughnuts, 1 sec) were taken on the main floor of the Metrograph. Of course, they have popcorn and a ton of candy to complete the movie-going experience. The donuts on the left are from the Doughnut Plant, home to my favorite doughnuts, including this one shaped adn flavored like a rose. 

More coming soon, I promise!! ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’ž

I've been obsessing over Hair for so many months (the latest issue of Sawyer is even Hair-themed!), and was psyched to see it in the Soho Artists & Fleas. I don't have record player, but almost bought it just to have around. I wanted someone else to be able to enjoy it properly instead. You should definitely check it out on Spotify or something though- it makes me so nostalgic for the late 60's, even though it was kind of a messy time (but what time isn't?). It just has such a vibrant sound and spirit. I personally love the revival recording, but the original (pictured) is arguably more authentic.

The Public Hotel is brand new to Chrystie St., and I'm already so in love. Besides the lobby market, neon escalators, and second-floor infinity mirror and pool table, their rooftop bar has one of the most unbelievable views of Manhattan. There are white couches everywhere for hanging out and taking in sun, plus speakers everywhere filled with music you'll definitely shazam. 

Until next time! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ๐Ÿ›

Hi!! ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒŸ Just wanted to say a quick hello with this simple outfit- mostly to show off this embroidered denim skirt from Topshop. I've been working in the city this summer and working on the August issue of Sawyer (sawyermagazine.com)! The next issue is 'Hair,' which I'm so thrilled about because I've been obsessing over all incarnations of the show for months and months. It's a piece thats really influenced my state of mind + lifestyle and so I'm so happy to share it with everybody! I've also been loving Younger, which you can watch on the TV Land website. Look out for more posts on the blog section coming super soon!
