News - H&M Life Magazine

Towards the tail end of last year H&M reached out to me to write a piece about my favorite things. Today it's LIVE and you can see whole feature here! Below, are some of my favorites that didn't make the edit, but I love too much to not share! All photos are by Derek Welte, thanks a million!

Williamsburg Bridge

The Williamsburg Bridge connects two of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC, Williamsburg and the Lower East Side. Just a quick 20 minute walk takes you over, with the city skyline and river as your backdrop.

Cafe la Mejor

My go-to pit stop for a coffee break is Cafeteria La Mejor in Bushwick. Even if the cafe wasn’t steps away from my apartment, I’d likely make the trek pretty much anywhere for their Cafe con Leche. It is rich and buttery, the perfect hot drink on a cold day. If you’ve never tried a savory cuppa you are truly missing out!

Lodge Brunch

In NYC we New Yorkers brunch hard. At week’s end, the perfect way to simultaneously wind down and get ready to go out is by stepping into one of my favorite brunch spots, Lodge. Inside, you feel like you’re in a log cabin, it’s cozy as can be. A late brunch bordering on dinner is my usual time to fuel up on breakfast foods in the afternoon. Plus, they have a mimosa special that’s hard to resist.
