6 NYC Instagram Foodie Hotspots (And Their Closest Attraction!)

Posting photos of your food on social media. 

It's something that people either love or hate. Personally, I am a fan of the quick food photo, but you won't catch me letting my food go cold to get the perfect shot either. I just love to eat too much. Living near New York, there's no shortness of Instagram foodie accounts. There are so many restaurants/cafes/food stalls that say their secret to success is the 'gram. I've visited a fair few spots in NYC because of what I've seen on Instagram so today I'm sharing their location, what they serve and what tourist attractions are close by so that you can maximise your time in the big apple. 


Dominique Ansel Bakery
What: Cronuts, cookie-milk shots, frozen smores, blooming hot chocolates. 
Where: 189 Spring Street.
What next?: Shop until you drop around Soho.

The April Edit

Woweee April has been a busy month. With a visit to Boston to visit Leda and my mum/sister visiting for 10 days, the month flew by. The weather has finally brightened up a little bit which has given me that little burst of energy that I really needed to get through a busy month. One thing, that I didn't realise is that the US gets less daylight hours than the UK during the summer so if the days are really bright and sunny, that helps make up the difference. It was so nice having my family here to visit. Taking them to New York was fun of course but I really enjoyed showing them around Stamford. Showing them where I go grocery shopping, our favourite restaurants, them meeting my friends etc. The 10 days flew by and whilst I'm sad to see them go, I'm also ready to power through my remaining 7 weeks in the US.


What I've Been Reading

My favourite books of the month were Eat Up! by Ruby Tandoh and Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. In Eat Up, Ruby Tandoh explores our relationship with food whilst adding in some beautifully descriptive pieces and scrummy recipes. In Little Fires Everywhere, we go back in time and follow two families in the events that lead to a house burning down. 

Both books, in their own right, were gripping, unique and addictive. I'd fully recommend! 

Honestly, with how busy my month has been I haven't really kept up to date on any of the blogs that I read so I don't have any great list of posts to recommend in this department. Apart from this post by Jasmin called 'I Want to do EVERYTHING but Also Spend Time on the Couch' which really summarised a lot of things I also feel.
