Tears Dry on Their Own

💸 Another day in soho! 🕊

Brunch at the Cupping Room- I was so craving an eggs Benedict and this place delivered.

Believe it or not, this is the entrance of a shoe store called Galeria Melissa. These giant screens are always moving and the images are different all the time.

Next up was the Glossier showroom! I've always wanted to go and I finally made my way there. It smells incredible and I wanted to buy everything. The whole room was so clean and pretty- definitely check it out if you're a fan of the brand!


Next up, the New Museum. Another first-time visit, I was really pleasantly surprised! I loved every exhibition, especially this one pictured: a working animation studio with the film played on a loop on this screen. If you're under 18, you're in free!


And last but not least, Bulletin (again). I can't get enough of this place. 

More finds soon!! 



📍flatiron, soho ~ these pics are from a little while ago (12/10), but I wanted to share some pics from the Bulletin Mini Mall! I'm obsessed. 


shirt and bag: thrifted, pants: Urban Outfitters, Vans sneakers, CAM zodiac necklace.


These are all from the Mini Mall! (927 Broadway) I think this location may have been more of a popup, but Bulletin has other permanent locations that I mentioned in my last post. This little shop was filled with so many cool gifts, from jewelry and clothes to pins and postcards. I really appreciate their feminist approach in everything they do and sell. Plus, they had a photobooth that printed your photos for free and emailed them to you. 

This shoe store was also a good find- besides having great stuff, they had a really cool entrance with huge colorful screens that are perfect for ig pictures. Its called Galeria Melissa and its @ 500 Broadway. The food is from Soho Park (62 Prince St) - we weren't planning on going but they ended up having really delicious kielbasa and fried pickles!


More soon! 🕊


Little Eden

📍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 I’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...

📍chinatown, financial district, seaport


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!! 💐🌟🌿💞
