Spending a Saturday in NYC? See below for my favorite spots to eat, drink, and shop like a local.


Vintage Twin ($$)

A thrift store that feels like a boutique. Vintage Twin is my go-to for band tees, leather jackets, and throwback bombers. The prices are a tad higher than the average thrift store, but the shopping experience is 1000x easier.

PS. Vintage Twin will pop around to a different location every year or so. So be sure to check their insta before going.

INA ($$)

Gently used designer clothing. I’m not really a second-hand shopper, but INA’s got a great collection of carefully selected goodies that you won’t find elsewhere.

Snidel ($$)

My Japanese fam that I’ve been working with for over a year—Snidel is finally available in the US! Affordable Japanese designs that are perfect for everyday wear.

Greene Street ($$$)

Acne Studios, Alexander Wang, Saint Laurent. Greene Street in SoHo (and the surrounding blocks) is my favorite destination for designer shopping. And it’s the best place to snap an Instagram pic too.

The Apartment by the Line ($$$)

Imagine your dream NYC apartment. Now imagine it filled with you dream furniture and clothes. Well, it’s all shoppable at the perfectly curated apartment store.

Barneys ($$$)

The only department store I shop at, the Barneys New York uptown has a bigger selection of designers (sometimes a bit overwhelming). While the smaller one in Chelsea is more low key and 1/4 of the size. You’ll always find what you’re looking for at either of the store locations!

IF ($$$$)

Dark, drapey, deconstructed. IF is for my Anne Demeulemeester/Rick Owens girls.

Totokaelo ($$$$)

A gorgeous space filled with gorgeous clothes—you can find designers like Vetements, Margiela, and Jacquemus in this stunning store.



Warning: lots of Australian restaurants below!


Veggies run the show here—but you can get anything from a mushroom reuben sandwich to a rainbow grain bowl. And their celery kombucha is out of the world!


A funky casual Vietnamese with outdoor seating—you can also order any of their noodle dishes with zucchini noodles which is a major selling point for me!


An Australian breakfast and lunch spot tucked away on a cute side street. This is one of my go-to’s for a simple yet insta-worthy brunch.

Bluestone Lane

Australians do it better. The best avocado toast and arguably the best latte in the city, this full-on Aussie spot serves all day brunch and an assortment of healthy lattes. I also love their grain bowls for lunch!


A buzzing spot loved by locals, Ruby’s is one of my go-to meeting spots for healthy yet yummy food. They’ve got pastas, burgers, sandwiches, and salads.


Organic plant based food. You will leave Botaniste feeling amazing. It’s fairly quick over the counter service, but the ingredients and the quality is some of the best in the city.



Cafe Integral

A cozy cafe tucked away from the heart of SoHo, Cafe Integral has a wild array of speciality drinks that boost the body and mind.

Cha Cha Matcha

Matcha with a scene. Cha cha definitely has the best matcha downtown and the best looking people too.

Happy Bones

An all-white tiny little cafe with just coffee, tea, and a few donuts. It’s so cute you can’t leave without taking a photo.

    These products look so interesting and beautiful. Also your tips are great, especially one about shaving lags with coconut oil. I never before hear for that, but I would like to try.
