Fun fact: I was born in New York City!
I was lucky enough to grow up super close to NYC. I've even had a few opportunities to work in the big city! I used to know my way around like a local (and felt pretty cool for it). But, since moving to Massachusetts I only make it back once or twice a year. Ugh!
Recently a few of my best gal pals have moved to New York which can only mean one thing: This girl is VISITING!
I'm sure by now you're wondering "how does Melody Wynn do NYC?" (probably not but please pretend you care). Check out my favorite spots below:
On the first night we got sushi, popped in to a few cute spots in the Meatpacking district, and ended the night at Kobrick Coffee Co. These pictures do not do this gem of a place justice! From the second I walked in I felt like I was in a little wonderland complete with velvet furniture, marble tables, fresh roses, and expensive (but divine) cocktails.
So we had intended to wake up early to go to When We Were Young for brunch, but winded up starting our day quite a bit later (#necessary though). Once we finally got moving, we made our way to one of my favorite places: SoHo! Of course, I had to stop by Cha Cha Matcha before anything. After a bit of wandering and window shopping, we eagerly hop skip jumped to the mother ship.... The Glossier Showroom!
If you have the chance, visit the Glossier Showroom and smudge all of the things on your face... It's therapeutic.
After the showroom, we made our last stop for the afternoon to a food and art market (what a combo!!!!)
That night, my friend said we absolutely had to go to The Jane. Obviously I was all for it. We knew the line gets long, so we opted to get there early at 9:30 (I highly recommend doing the same to avoid the INSANE line that forms not much later).
Have you ever dreamed of going to a Chuck Bass party? Well sista this is the next best thing. The chic, cozy space is inhabited by beautiful cocktails, beautiful people, and a private house party ish vibe. I didn't take any pictures, but I know how to use Google so I looked some up to show ya what I'm talking about.
See what I mean?
The next morning, I met up with another galpal for brunch at Boucherie.
Sitting outside on a sunny day, surrounded by art deco, palm plants, and eggs benedict? Tres bien.
