From the inception of this blog, I’ve made it clear that my main mission is to bring you the best and brightest that NYC has to offer, whether it be a shop off the beaten path, or a kick-butt new collection that you simply MUST pay attention to. That in mind, I’m on a special mission with this post. My goal is to take you all through my perfect NYC day, with five stops to five of the hottest beauty and fitness hotspots that my fine city has to offer. That’s 5x the fun, folks, so won’t you all come along for the ride?
Every great day begins with a great workout, in my opinion, and there is no better place to work it out in than FlyWheel in FlatIron. From the pumping music, to the energetic instructors, this spin institution has become my cardio mecca.
BCBG Max Azria Fifth Avenue
When gallivanting about the city, a girl has to do so in only the most stylish of threads. As a fashion-savvy New Yorker, and a girl blessed with a figure that doesn’t take to all brands and cuts, my pick for awesome clothing is BCBG. There are many locations throughout the city, but my favorite is the Fifth Avenue location, between 40th and 41st.
The Make Up For Ever Boutique
Those who read my site know that I am a Make Up For Ever JUNKIE. My pick for getting my cosmetic fix is the Make Up For Ever Boutique in SoHo, for the most authentic, interactive experience possible. Not only can you find the full range of Make Up For Ever products there, but you can also pick up a makeup lesson while you’re at it. WIN.
Barneys New York
This is where you can find tons of high end niche beauty products. Need I say more?
These days, nearly every high-end nail salon is offering some variation on the gel manicure. However, it’s Marie Nails that elevates nails to an art form, with custom calgel manicures that can last up to a month! We’re talking ombres, decals, 3-d art, and more, all for nails.
And there you have it, my top five NYC beauty, fashion, and fitness hotspots. You dig?
