    1. Give a warm HELLO to Innisfree, your new K-Beauty obsession. Pro tip! Make your oily t-zone quake in fear by way of their volcanic cleansing foam.

    2. Take your kitchen from bleh to BAM with kitschy dishes and glasses from Fishs Eddy. Their "Good Morning Asshole" mug never fails to put an early AM smile on my face.*

    3. Catbird NYC offers stunning pieces of jewelry that deserve to be displayed in a fine arts museum. Think cuff bracelets, hoop earrings, and engagement rings I'm considering proposing to myself with.

    4. Hail a yellow cab, go directly to the Bloomingdale's on 59th, and prepare to leave with a filled-to-the-brim Little Brown Bag.

    5. Brooklyn-bred GREATS designs sneakers that are (fantastic pun ahead) truly great. Premium quality kicks at a reasonable price? I'm with it.

    6. Breakfast at Tiffany & Co. sounds fantastic in theory, but do you know what sounds better than breakfast? Jewelry. Just call me Audrey Hepburn because the idea of cradling a robin egg blue box in my hands is overwhelming.

    7. Glossier is known for their love of dewy skin and easy-to-use products. Now please take my not-so-humble advice and try out their Boy Brow and Milky Jelly Cleanser. They're cult-favorites for a reason.

    8. American Eagle, home of fantastic jeans and ridiculously cozy sweaters, has a store/studio in NYC. The "WOW!" aspect of said studio? An Instagram-friendly laundromat that's open to the public.

    9. ABC Carpet & Home strives to turn your humble abode into a creative sanctuary. Their unique pieces include everything from crystal chandeliers and velvet quilts to opal rings and incense boxes.

    10. Unearth hidden designer treasures at THE BEST Century 21 in Manhattan. This department store is a milk-and-honey oasis for every bargain hunter in the 🌍.

    11. When you think of Gorjana, think dainty. Their stacking rings, delicate necklaces, and go-to earrings are truly Pinterest perfect.

    12. The Vintage Twin sources — huge shocker, I know — vintage pieces that you'll want to treasure forever. And ever. And ever. And maybe a few decades after that last ever, as well.

    13. Cruelty-free, food-based makeup products are the bread and butter of Bite Beauty. BUT DID YOU KNOW that they also have a make-your-own lipstick lab? Hello, bliss.

    14. Mulberry & Grand is the world's most perfect "so sorry I forgot that your birthday was last week!" gift shop. They carry everything from dresses and jumpsuits to wallets and confetti candles.

    15. Put on your best headband, Blair Waldorf — it's time to burn a few bucks at Barneys New York. Mmmm, I can already taste the luxury.

    16. Parisian-based diptyque offers rose-infused facial oils, nourishing lip balms, and of course — their pièce de résistance — DELICIOUS soy candles. Now light a match and RELAX.

    17. Rent the Runway understands that millennials can't afford to buy (HA), which is why they offer rentals on designer pieces that you'd probably only wear once anyway.

    18. You don't need to go to Italy (or NYC, really) for quality leather sneakers. KOIO has got you covered with classic Italian-made styles that will pair perfectly with everything your wardrobe has to offer.

    19. DSTLD is a direct-to-consumer brand that fulfills the dream of every minimalist in the whole darn Milky Way. They offer fantastic basics (leather, denim, suede) in neutral colors.

    20. The magic of Macy's is a tangible thing that can be found at the department store's Herald Square flagship location. FUN FACT! This store was built in 1902 and is the largest store in the entire United States.

    21. K-beauty brand Nature Republic is best known for their soothing aloe vera gel. PRO TIP ALERT! Store the lotion in the fridge + apply it after a trip to the beach. You're welcome in advance, folks.

    22. I can see clearly now because of Warby Parker, a budget-friendly retailer that offers prescription eyeglasses for $100. Lenses included!

    23. An original Woodstock tee? A tweed Chanel purse? You'll find it all at What Goes Around Comes Around, a high-end oasis for all things vintage.

    24. My sweet tooth is in a monogamous relationship with Milk Bar Bakery. Their cornflake marshmallow cookies, cereal milk soft serve, and birthday cakes (see below) are just too damn good.

    25. Move over, apricot scrub, because there's a new St. Ives sheriff in town! There is now a St. Ives mixing bar that lets you create customized skincare.

    26. Swedish-born & Other Stories offers the kind of clothing that'll put butterflies in your stomach. Leopard print sweaters, patent leather boots, crystal drop earrings....I'm sweating.

    27. Calling all bibliophiles! Strand Bookstore sells new, used, rare, and out-of-print books to help you build up your "I will eventually have a Beauty and the Beast-esque library" dream come true.

    28. Warning: DO NOT enter Saks Fifth Avenue unless you are prepared to lust after a whole new wardrobe. They have so many gorgeous designers and styles, you won't know what to look at first.

    29. Eco-friendly Reformation may be a maxi dress lover's dream, sure. But another winner winner chicken dinner? Their magical Clueless-style fitting rooms.

    30. While Times Square is the bane of every New Yorker's existence (THIS IS A FACT), the four-floor Forever 21 makes the I'm-surrounded-by-tourists trek worth it.

    31. Want affordable, comfortable, and pretty intimates? Lively has got you covered with their athleisure + lingerie baby = Leisurée.

    32. Maman NYC is the kind of coffee shop/bakery that makes you regret having ever stepped into a Starbucks. Nutella beignet or strawberry brioche, anyone?

    33. Lockwood Shop offers everything from braided baskets and ceramic honey pots to hoop earrings and baseball caps. They also sell 👏 THE BEST 👏 greeting cards.
