As a little girl, I grew up watching baseball with my Dad, which I loved because it was something special we did together. Since I really didn’t have anyone else around me at the time that cared much about football, it was never a focus of mine…
Whenever my friends plan a trip to NYC, the first thing many ask me for is a Times Square hotel recommendation. While I usually avoid the tourist spots in the city, I was recently introduced to Row NYC. Located on 8th Avenue at 44th Street, Row NYC is located just around the corner from tons of wonderful theaters and bustling restaurants, and a 3-night stay at the hotel completely changed the snarky opinion I held about Times Square. Here’s why it’s a great place to stay.

I met my friend Paul eight years ago while we were both working as editors at the same home decor magazine. But little did I know that he and I would become really close friends throughout the years and that he would eventually invest in, and help open a very cool restaurant in Williamsburg…read more >
Last Sunday I headed uptown to my friend Agathe’s apartment to attempt to bake some “Matcha Green Tea” cupcakes, from a recipe created by her company, Red Velvet NYC. Think Blue Apron, but for desserts! I was a little nervous because I couldn’t even remember the last time I sifted flour, let alone made my own frosting (try never). But she was a great teacher and encouraged me to do each step on my own, even when I felt like I had no idea what I was doing.
Because I am such a visual learner, I love that Red Velvet NYC has pictures to go along with their recipe text. That might sound like a no brainer, but think of all the recipes out there that are just listed in a cookbook with no photos to accompany it! I get so lost and overwhelmed that I usually just give up. But I love how beautiful the photos are on the recipe cards that come in the box, plus every ingredient is perfectly portioned out so you have exactly what you need.
