What's New What's Next: Celerie Kemble at 1stdibs

Another cool thing that we saw while at What’s New What’s Next at the New York Design Center was the 1stdibs gallery on the 10th floor, chock-full of amazing one-of-a-kind pieces and antiques from dealers all over the country. There was a collection curated by interior designer Celerie Kemble, who recently designed a line of products for Hendredon and…

The Sweet Shop NYC

I love when a wonderful new shop comes to my neighborhood (especially a sweet shop!), so you can imagine how excited I was to discover The Sweet Shop NYC. It is so many things all wrapped up into one: a candy store, an ice cream shop, a whimsical, Willy Wonka-esque wonderland, a…

I Finally Got a Cronut!

I FINALLY got a Cronut! For those of you who aren’t familiar with what a Cronut is or why getting one is a big deal, allow me to explain. A Cronut is this delicious hybrid of a croissant and a doughnut, created by pastry chef Dominique Ansel (whose bakery I…

The Doughnuttery

When was the last time you had a warm, fresh doughnut, hot out of the fryer? Never? Yup, me too. That’s why I’m newly obsessed with The Doughnuttery, an adorable little shop tucked waaaayyy in the back of Chelsea Market, which is frying up incredibly delicious mini doughnuts right before…

Dominique Ansel Bakery

If you’re in New York City and find yourself in the mood for a sweet treat, there’s no place I can recommend more highly than Dominique Ansel Bakery at 189 Spring Street, in the heart of Soho. Here, you will find hand-crafted, imaginative pastries such as those you would get at a five-star…

Fishs Eddy

Fishs Eddy is a great kitchen/dishware store down around the Flatiron neighborhood. I know, kitchenware sounds kind of boring….but Fishs Eddy is anything but. Their motto is “we do dishes,” and they certainly do-but not in any ordinary way. The items available are eclectic, unique, and absolutely charming. Everything, from…

Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market is a really fun place to visit in NYC. It’s basically a giant marketplace that you walk through with tons of stores and cool foodie places. There’s Anthropologie, a bookstore, a big seafood market, an authentic little Asian grocery store, a milk bar, and seriously tons more. You can…

La Churreria

My sister and I were recently discussing the absence of churros in NYC (or anywhere). As kids, we loved getting them in our local mall, and with the overabundance of cupcakes and other baked goods in the city you would think someone would’ve tapped into the churro market! As fate…
