Postcard from Rome

It’s been three magical days in Rome, and I’m already longing to go back to all the hidden trattorias and espresso bars, piazzas and fountains. Since it was my/our very first time in Rome, we felt like we “had” to (and was very excited to) see the Vatican, the spanish steps, the Colosseum, and so on (which was quite draining, to be honest)… I’ve never seen so many tourists in my life! However, we did take...

Greenwich Village Stationary Paradise

You should’ve seen my face when I stumbled upon this place on our stroll through Greenwich Village (my favorite NYC neighborhood). I was “summoned” by the beautiful notebooks, pens and general interior of the McNally Jackson Store as we passed by, and I fell even more head-over-heels in love as I wandered around the store, mesmerized. I regret not spending more time there, though (then again, I could’ve spent hours...

5 New York Specialty Coffeeshops

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.

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. Carina and I chose to share a buddha bowl (the Tibetan Mama Rice bowl, to be...
