Steal vs. Splurge: Studded T-Strap Heel

Every girl needs a good pair of heels. I’m personally a huge fan of the studded t-strap heel, but the Valentino ones are way out of my budget. So I found a way to get the look without having to empty my bank account.

The Most Instagramable Yoga Studios in NYC

If you didn’t already know, I’m really into ClassPass. By really into, I mean obsessed. As a member of ClassPass, I’ve discovered the most amazing studios and continue to find more and more on my daily fitness adventures. While I’m sweating, meditating or trying a new yoga flow, I like for my Instagram to get a work out too. So in no particular order (because I love them all), here are the top most Instagramable yoga studios in NYC. I plan to add to this list as I discover more.

Anya

Anya has been a go-to of mine for years now. It’s one of my favorite places to practice aerial yoga while getting a selfie in the Harrison hammock. The studio is filled with beautiful plants and flowers that look amazing in photos and make your practice feel more natural.

Floating Lotus

This midtown spa/studio is an oasis in a sea of office buildings. During the evening rush, I love rushing over to Floating Lotus to practice yoga under the Manhattan sky in their breathtaking skylit rooftop studio.

The light within me bows to the light within you. Loving AromaYoga at @floatinglotusnyc! #Yoga #TreePose 🙏🏻

Laughing Lotus

Laughing Lotus is one of the brightest most beautiful yoga studios I’ve ever seen. The murals and patterns on the walls are enough to make anyone smile no matter how bad your day has been. They even have a glitter bar.

You always sweat #glitter at @laughinglotusny thanks to their Goddess Glitter Bar filled with glitter salt shakers!

Sky Ting Yoga

You may have seen Sky Ting‘s stuffed giraffe on my Insta Stories recently. I’m still not sure what the point is of having a giraffe in a yoga studio, but I like it.

Woom Center

Woom Center yoga, meditation and sound cafe is one of the most unique and beautiful yoga studios I’ve ever been to. I’ve had several of my most spiritual experiences here and I’m sure I’ll have more in the future. You’ll experience the class with all of your five senses and the walls light up to go along with the music raising your vibrations even further.

Power #crystals! @woomcenter 🔮🌙

I.AM.YOU Studio

This hidden treasure in Little Italy is one of the most inspiring places I’ve ever been. I.AM.YOU Studio (pictured above) was started by an ex-Wall Street executive gone full time yoga and wellness guru. Classes take place in her beautiful personal loft filled with some of the most impressive paintings and furniture I’ve ever seen. Not only is she an excellent yoga teacher, she also has excellent taste. I go to I.AM.YOU whenever I need a retox.

Adventures at French Cheese Board in Soho

I recently went to an amazing influencer get together organized by my friend Janine Just at the classy French Cheese Board shop in Soho. This stunning space certainly caters to fans of the finer things. Not only is it a delicious destination for the finest French cheese, they also offer innovative programming that blends art, design and of course food. Whether you’re a cuisine connoisseur or just looking to serve fancy French cheese at your next party, I highly recommend stopping by French Cheese Board.

Girl Power With Boy Meets Girl!

Boy Meets Girl Logo Tee Aspiring Socialite

Boy Meets Girl recently sent me this fab Alice Logo Tee and Lasting Joy Over-sized Denim Jacket. They inspired me to do something I’ve never done before. For the first time ever I did a photo shoot with a crop top. Maybe it was the 90s vibes I got from these pieces or the New York art and music scene that inspired them. Whatever it was, it finally gave me the confidence to be fearless.

I’ve long been a fan of Boy Meets Girl and designer Stacy Igel. I love the iconic logo and their commitment to causes such as anti-bullying. I paired the logo tee with Distressed Skinny Jeans. I rocked the denim jacket with an Off-the-Shoulder Striped Knit Sneaker Dress, Chanel sunglasses and Longchamp ‘Large Le Pliage’ Tote. Thanks again to Boy Meets Girl for the inspiration!
