NYC Guide: Freemans

Nestled at the end of an unmarked alleyway in downtown New York City, Freemans Restaurant is serving up deliciously fresh farm-to-table eats in a rustic, stylish space. It may be one of the most Instagrammed eateries in NYC – chances are if you follow a lot of New York ‘grammers, you’ll recognize the restaurant’s twinkle-lit, robins-egg … Read more ››

Photo Essays: Summer at Old Westbury Gardens

If you remember from last week’s post, I took a trip out to Old Westbury Gardens during one of the last weeks of the summer. It may be Fall now, but it’s nice to look back and remember this lovely, sunny day in my favorite place. Remember to check out my … Read more ››

Photo Essays: Phipps House

During one of the last weeks of August, my parents and I spent a day at Old Westbury Gardens – pretty much my favorite place on Earth/my idea of paradise. This time was a little different because we decided to take a walk through the house before strolling the grounds. The … Read more ››

Leanne Shapton for Jane Austen Classics

I recently (like, half an hour ago) discovered a new favorite Instagram called Bookmusings, created by a former librarian and big-time bibliophile named Michelle. She has all of the most beautiful editions of the classics and has induced in me some serious bookshelf envy. While perusing her feed, I came across … Read more ››
