Amorino – UWS

I truly believe that ice cream or gelato could bring about world peace. With that said, there’s an amazing new gelato spot on the Upper West Side. Best of all they use all natural ingredients and some are even organic! Yeah, that’s right people, natural and organic means guilt free. Why? Cause it’s real freaking […]

Paint Box – SoHo

I’m a nail biter. It’s a horrible habit that I just can’t seem to break. In order to combat this unladylike habit, I get my nails done. I’m not talking just a nice normal manicure, hell no. Waste of money if you ask me. I prefer gel and I usually get CalGel at Marie Nails. […]

Saiguette – UWS

You know the saying ‘not all Asians look alike’? Well, the same is true for Asian food, but they all are yummy! Saiguette, located on the Upper West Side, is literally a hole in the wall. In my opinion, those places tend to be the best. Serving up some of the best Vietnamese food in […]

Speightstown – Barbados

One of my favorite things about visiting a new country or place is eating where and what the locals eat. Not only will the food probably be better than the tourist traps, it will also be way cheaper. Ergo, you won’t break your piggy bank and you’ll probably be able to vacation longer. Amazeballs, right? […]
