Black Tap isn’t insta-famous for no reason! Their menu offers an array of insanely delicious and unique burger choices. This NYC staple is owned by Michelin-Starred chef Joe Isidori, and restauranteur Chris Barish. I recently had the pleasure of devouring a crowd favorite, the Texan Burger, which is topped with a crispy onion ring, aged cheddar and some good ‘ol Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. At a fair price of roughly $17, the Texan Burger is definitely a burger to add to your bucket list!
Show your lips some love with this guru favorite! Kopari products are some of my favorites and this gloss is no exception. The Coconut Lip Glossy is beautiful alone or over a matte lipstick, and adds a gorgeous sheen without being sticky or uncomfortable on the lips. YouTube superstar Jaclyn Hill raves about this product and you can find it in stores such as Anthropologie, Ulta and Sephora for a cool $13.
This French Bakery in the heart of NYC offers numerous Parisian treats that will have you saying Oui Oui! My personal favorite is the Nutella Beignet, a warm, gooey chocolate pastry stuffed with everyone’s favorite hazelnut spread. Priced at only $3.75, itis truly out of this world! This place tends to get quite crowded, so we definitely suggest visiting on a day you aren’t in much of a hurry – it is well worth stopping in, promise!
Glow Recipe has blessed us with one of the most amazing overnight masks of this century. This product smells just like fresh cut watermelon — seriously, the scent is like no other. Packed with hyaluronic acid and AHA’s, this mask leaves your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and looking radiant. You can find this product at Sephora for $45. If you’re like me and you like to ‘test drive’ your skin care before you commit, this also comes in a mini-size that will run you only about $22.

If you’re looking for melt in your mouth, fall of the bone, slow cooked to perfection BBQ, this is it! Jax BBQ’s housemade sauces are perfection and the prices are just right! This is my go-to spot for spare ribs and the brisket might make you sing. Make sure to ask your server for extra wet-naps; you’ll need them!
This product is nothing short of amazing. If you’ve been looking for a product that feels refreshing while making you look bright-eyed and awake, this is it! You can even wear it over your makeup for a natural looking glow. This is by far Tula’s best selling (and probably fastest selling) product. Make sure to grab it when it’s in stock, because at only $28, it sells out fast!
This limited edition latex lip gloss in the shade, Cannes Tropez, is a Summer ‘19 must have! This product goes on smooth, hydrates the lips and is highly pigmented. I have worn it on several occasions and didn’t find it to be even the slightest bit sticky. If coral pinks aren’t your jam, there are five other summer-ready shades to choose from for just $36.
If you didn’t already know, Aragosta is Italian for lobster and of all the lobster dishes I’ve had in my lifetime, this one surpasses them all. Montebello is, in my opinion, Midtown’s best kept secret. While my friends rave about the entire menu, I just can’t bring myself to stray from my usual order when I visit. The waiters are doting and the vibe is very authentic Italian. This dish and restaurant are a definite must!
