Dinner at Café Henrie, New York

Sponsored. On my trip to New York I had the pleasure of testing Café Henrie’s new dinner service. Café Henrie has long been a favorite amongst bloggers and instagrammers – but mostly for their picture-perfect brunch. So when I was invited for dinner in the café I didn’t quite know what to expect. The place is absolutely adorable: kind of diner-inspired, pink and retro. Perfect for Instagram, really – but...

Buddha Bowls on the Upper East Side

Two of the things I enjoy most in cities are (1) specialty coffeeshops and (2) vegan/vegetarian restaurants! So I was particularly excited about my visit at By CHLOE and, of course, this gem! Le Botaniste, located a few blocks from Midtown and a stone’s throw from Central Park, is all about healthy, plant-based, organic food.

Next to me sat an all-american New Jersey dad with his little kid crawling back and...

I came across Jack’s Wife Freda on Instagram and immediately fell in love with the place (without having been there), so naturally it was high on my list of places to visit during my time in the city. I arrived Wednesday (a day later than planned due to the major snowstorm in NYC on Tuesday), and both Carina (whom I’m spending my time in the city with) and myself were too exhausted...

Best Brunch in Berlin

When I was in Berlin in September I visited Distrikt Coffee three times. Yup, three times. I had done quite a bit of research for an article about coffeeshops in the city, and Distrikt Coffee was amongst the places I wanted to visit and write about. The third wave coffee phenomenon has really taken europe by storm, and it seems like speciality coffeeshops are popping up in cities like Berlin every single...
