what to do in new york

I have officially lived in New York City for one year. I get friends messaging me all the time telling me how they’re visiting the city soon and would love recommendations–things to do, what to experience, places to get coffee or food. I have a list of coffee shops, restaurants, museums, book stores, and so much more, and I’d be happy to share with anyone who was curious. 

But for now, if you’re reading this and visiting New York for the first time or you’re a local looking for new things to do, here are some suggestions: 


Find coffee.

There are tons of coffee shops and cafes you can get lost in, one of the best would have to be Happy Bones. I mean, look how cute this latte is?

Get lost in a plant store. 

Looking for a succulent or a bouquet of flowers? Or maybe you want eucalyptus or a ficus to add in your home. There are tons of plant stores in both Brooklyn and Manhattan that you can get lost in. I stumbled upon Green Fingers Market the other day and was overwhelmed with what I saw: not only were their potted plants and bouquets of flowers but also candles, vintage sweaters and shirts, and antique home decor!

Visit Mejuri.

If you’re in NYC sometime between Nov 23 - Dec 22, get your booty to The Vault.

As a part of Mejuri’s Fine Crew, I was able to attend The Vault event in NYC just before its opening to the public and look how beautiful it was:

If you can’t make it to The Vault, that’s totally ok! The showroom is still waiting for you in Soho. Feel free to stop in, try on some jewelry, take selfies in the mirror. Go ahead and frost yourself.

You can never be bored in New York and that’s a promise. 

Where are some of your favorite spots in the city? Feel free to tweet me! I’m curious and always looking for a new experience.
