New York is known for its great food, so next time you are in the city check out some of these awesome places!

1. Jack's Wife Freda

I found Jack's Wife Freda on Instagram a few years ago and fell in love with it. The food they serve is delicious. I mean, look at that picture above. Isn't your stomach just rumbling at the sight of it? The website states, "Jack’s Wife Freda is a lively all-day bistro executing American-Mediterranean cooking & classic cocktails in understated digs. Serving breakfast, lunch & dinner, 7 days a week. Long hours, deep sense of hospitality, playful sense of humor and reasonable prices. Revising familiar twists on everyday food." I think that quote in itself describes Jack's Wife Freda perfectly. I definitely recommend you take a trip down and try it!

2. 10Below Ice Cream


You've probably heard of this place from one of those Foodie videos you watched on Facebook. This is the ice cream shop that rolls your ice cream, rather than scoop. I went here last week and fell in love. Who knew that ice cream would taste better rolled?

136-17 39th Ave, Flushing, NY 11354

3. Bar Pitti


I haven't been to Bar Pitti, but my friends recommended it to me. Upon looking for it on Google I found that a significant amount of celebrities have dined here. Including, but not limited to: Jim Carrey, Scott Disick, Heidi Klum, Kanye West and Beyonce. If you're in the mood to dine like a celeb and eat some incredible Italian food, Bar Pitti is the perfect spot to check out.

4. Black Tap


Black Tap is all the rage right now, but not for their burgers or their beers, but their milkshakes. I haven't been able to get their yet, considering every time I walk by the line is around the block, but I won't give up. These milkshakes are so over the top, but it seems that everyone is more than willing to gain a few pounds just to eat them.

5. Sugar Factory


Like Bar Pitti, Sugar Factory is another celebrity magnet. From Rupert Grint to Drake, celebrities seem to be attracted to these colorful drinks. Honestly, do me a favor and check out their celebrity gallery. Not only is the food good here, the atmosphere is so much fun! Also, this fishbowl type drinks are so cool to see them make.

835 Washington St, New York, NY 10014

6. Two Hands


This cafe is described as a "bright and airy cafe." Here you can order anything from juice to espresso and pastries, salads and sandwiches. My friends love this place and every time I pass it while the city I always wish I had the time to stop in and get a cup of coffee. Definitely on my list of places to hit up next time I'm in the area.

164 Mott St, New York, NY 10013

7. Serendipity 3


Serendipity 3 is an endearing little shop in the Upper East Side. The meals you can eat are delicious, but the best part is the dessert. The frozen hot chocolate is delectable and the sundaes are amazing. Also, if you have a spare $1,000 you can order the Golden Opulence Sundae. Not really sure what's in it, but they need a reservation 48 hours in advance if you want to get it.

225 E 60th St, New York, NY 10022

8. Little Cupcake Bakeshop


Little Cupcake Bakeshop is another great place to treat yourself. The treats that are made here are made from the freshest ingredients from farms in the Hudson Valley, Catskills, Vermont and New Jersey. As a plus, the Prince Street location always has really cool murals on the side. Perfect cupcake plus cool mural equals a perfect Instagram.

9. Dos Caminos


One of the first things this restaurant's about page says is, "We've got over 100 kinds of tequila... Need we say more?" And honestly, they probably don't have to say more. If you're in the mood for Mexican, and some tequila, this place is just for you. Fortunately, there's more than one spot.

675 Hudson Street at 14th St, New York, NY 10014

475 West Broadway at Houston St, New York, NY 10012

W New York Times Square, 1567 Broadway, New York, NY 10036

373 Park Avenue South at 27th St, New York, NY 10016

825 Third Avenue at 50th St, New York, NY 10022

10. Holey Cream


One of the stand out treats from Holey Cream is the donut ice cream sandwich you see here. The amount of times I have seen this sweet treat come across my Instagram feed is too much to count and, yet, I haven't made it there yet. Holey Cream is open late, so no matter when you start craving something sweet, you can always pop by and get something from here.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
