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?

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.

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

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.

To The Girl Struggling With Her Body Image

It's not about the size of your jeans, but the size of your heart, soul, and spirit.

To the girl struggling with her body image,

You are more than the number on the scale. You are more than the number on your jeans and dresses. You are way more than the number of pounds you've gained or lost in whatever amount of time.

Weight is defined as the quantity of matter contained by a body or object. Weight does not define your self-worth, ambition or potential.

So many girls strive for validation through the various numbers associated with body image and it's really so sad seeing such beautiful, incredible women become discouraged over a few numbers that don't measure anything of true significance.

Yes, it is important to live a healthy lifestyle. Yes, it is important to take care of yourself. However, taking care of yourself includes your mental health as well. Neglecting either your mental or physical health will inflict problems on the other. It's very easy to get caught up in the idea that you're too heavy or too thin, which results in you possibly mistreating your body in some way.

Your body is your special, beautiful temple. It harbors all of your thoughts, feelings, characteristics, and ideas. Without it, you wouldn't be you. If you so wish to change it in a healthy way, then, by all means, go ahead. With that being said, don't make changes to impress or please someone else. You are the only person who is in charge of your body. No one else has the right to tell you whether or not your body is good enough. If you don't satisfy their standards, then you don't need that sort of negative influence in your life. That sort of manipulation and control is extremely unhealthy in its own regard.

Do not hold back on things you love or want to do because of how you interpret your body. You are enough. You are more than enough. You are more than your exterior. You are your inner being, your spirit. A smile and confidence are the most beautiful things you can wear.

It's not about the size of your jeans. It's about the size of your mind and heart. Embrace your body, observe and adore every curve, bone and stretch mark. Wear what makes you feel happy and comfortable in your own skin. Do your hair and makeup (or don't do either) to your heart's desire. Wear the crop top you've been eyeing up in that store window. Want a bikini body? Put a bikini on your body, simple.

So, as hard as it may seem sometimes, understand that the number on the scale doesn't measure the amount or significance of your contributions to this world. Just because that dress doesn't fit you like you had hoped doesn't mean that you're any less of a person.

Love your body, and your body will love you right back.

The Football World Loses One Of Its Finest Players

Bart Starr passed away and NFL players, coaches, and fans all mourn the loss of the Packer legend, but his life and career will live on in hearts of Packer nation forever.

Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama. The NFL lost a great player. The Green Bay Packers lost a hero. And, the world lost a true gentleman. Starr's legacy has surpassed his accomplishments on the gridiron. He inspired not only his peers but the generations that have come after him. He is — and always — will be remembered as a Hall of Famer, a champion, and a Packer.


Bart Starr was a Packers legend. Starr led Green Bay to six division titles and five world championships. As the quarterback of Vince Lombardi's offense, he kept the machine going and executed the plays like no other. His mastery of the position was a large part of the Packers success in the 1960s. Starr was also the perfect teammate for the perfect team. His leadership put him in command of the Packers. Starr's time in Green Bay will not be forgotten by former players, coaches, and the fans.

Bart Starr's resume is rivaled by few in NFL history. He played in 10 postseason games and won 9 of them. He led the Packers to victory in Super Bowls I and II and won the MVP award in both games. He was the MVP of the league in 1966 and was named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1960s. The Packers retired his number 15 and Starr has been inducted into the Packers and Pro Football Hall of Fame.


After his playing days, Starr would become the head coach of the Packers. He could not repeat the success he had on the field from the 1960s teams. His coaching years do not take away from his legacy as one of the all-time great Packers. Starr was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977.

One of Starr's last visits to Lambeau field was on a cold November night in 2015. Starr and his wife attended a ceremony in which the Packers retired Brett Favre's jersey number. Starr was the perfect personification of what it meant to be a Packer. His most heroic moment came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. The Ice Bowl came down to a third and goal in Lambeau Field's south endzone against the Dallas Cowboys. Starr came to the sidelines and bravely told Vince Lombardi that he can sneak it in for a game-winning touchdown. Lombardi then replied, "Run it, and let's get the hell out of here." Starr ran a quarterback sneak for the game-winner and the Packers were off to Super Bowl II. Without Starr, Green Bay would not have won a second straight Super Bowl. His leadership in big game moments will live with Packers fans for a lifetime.

Vince Lombardi: A Football Life - The Ice Bowl

Starr leaves behind his wife Cherry, his son, and three granddaughters. Packers fans will have a tight grip on the memories Bart Starr and the 60s teams created. Starr left behind a template for being a Green Bay Packer. He also left a template for being a good man and a gentleman of the game of football. He was a competitor and a leader. Packer nation mourns for the loss of one of the finest human beings the game has seen.
