La Petite Peach_things to do in NYC 24

Just in case you missed our Bonpoint visit make sure you check it out! I was thinking about how every time I go to NYC, I visit all the same places (such a creature of habit). When Wesleigh and I last went, we really branched out and tried some new things…

We went shopping, tried new foods, hit up food trucks, and explored new neighborhoods. I have to say, though, don’t leave the city without doing these 11 things below!

Of course, we went to all our favorite places we always go to as well. I mean there is no way I am leaving NYC without a fabulous brunch or strolling the aisles at Eataly for goodies to bring home. Here are my new, and old, go-to spots.

Food Truck: By far the best thing that ever happened to me is Waffles and Dinges. It’s just like the mini waffles I used to get on the side of the road in Florence.

Brunch: Everyone in NYC does brunch, and I know New Yorkers are rolling their eyes, but Balthazar is amazing and I won’t leave the city without at least walking by!

Coffee on the go: Dean and Deluca is one of those places where you stop for a quick coffee/shopping break and you leave with flowers, fresh fruit, a smoothie, four types of cheeses you have never heard of, honey from France, and two new types of olive oil. OK, maybe that’s just me?

Kids Shopping: This is its own blog post, seriously, but Bonpoint is so gorgeous and it’s next to Ladurée so it’s a double whammy! Sweet William and Giggle are also favorites.

A Salad: Jack’s Wife Freda is a super cute café in Soho with killer salads!

Music: I have been following Carte Blanche for years and seeing them play live in the city is something you just have to see for yourself.

Bath and Body: Sabon in NYC is a lovely place to get bath and body products. I have been using the scrub for over five years (vanilla-coconut), and the handmade soaps are delightful. TIPwhen they ask if you want to wash your hands, DO IT! I didn’t do it the first time I walked in, I thought it was maybe weird? The second time around I did and got to see how to use the products and left with baby bottom, soft hands.

People Watching: There are a ton of outdoor cafés in NYC perfect for people watching, but I love grabbing a cappuccino in the lounge of the Mercer Hotel. So many beautiful people in one spot. It’s a great place to grab a drink and dinner too.

Gourmet Superstore: Eataly in the Flatiron District of NYC is a feast for the eyes and stomach. Imagine a HUGE Italian outdoor farmers market, but indoors! There are restaurants (including a pizza stop), gourmet grocery, gelato, fresh cheese, meats, pastas and more. You must, I repeat, must go here if you are in the city.

Guacamole: Dos Caminos, just go!

A Quick Bite: I love popping into Olive’s. Strong, hot coffee and great salads, amazing little sandwiches and just a great place to pop into get a bite.

Thanks so much to Brookelyn Photography  for shooting this for us! xo!

Wesleigh and I were in New York City for Playtime New York a few weeks ago. We could not have left without visiting the Bonpoint Soho store…

Bonpoint is one of those children’s clothing companies I first fell in love with after having Luke. Of course it’s from France, but the quality of clothing is beyond compare. I have some things of Luke’s that made it 10 years and running for Wesleigh.

The shop in Soho is like stepping into your dream house in France. The weathered wooden floors complement the vintage chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. I could move in there and live happily ever after. Not to mention they are neighbors with Ladurée, and you can see their outdoor courtyard/cafe from the back windows.

The spring/summer line was already in the windows of the shop when we arrived, so Wesleigh and I did a little shopping. The New Mexico capsule collection (now in stores) is stunning, I can’t say enough how beautiful everything was in person. I love the dress we bought for Wesleigh, I receive nothing short of a hundred compliments when she wears it. People definitely notice the quality and immediately ask me where I got it. The pieces are definitely something you can pass down through multiple children.

Would love to hear what you think! Comment below!
