I love exploring New York City and any other place I might find myself visiting (See what I did in Chicago over here!). I strongly believe that everywhere you go has its charm and its fair share of things to see, do, eat, and enjoy. Obviously, the Big Apple has way more than a “fair share” of places to check out and try. I mean, every week there is a new place to make an appearance at or that makes its way to number one in a trendy hit list, turning it into a very crowded must-try. However, crowded or not, we love to explore, eat, and have fun. Case in point: Chefs Club Counter in SoHo! The which I have seen climbing up FourSquare’s weekly top list.
As a Blogger, I get to try various products, enjoy fun experiences, and new places. Sometimes, it is not possible to share all of these discoveries with you in a blog post. So, I’ve decided to compile a list of the discoveries of the previous month, along with my top blog posts, and Instagram pics so you get a recap all in one place. So, get ready to discover new products and add new places or activities to try in the near future. As December and January are a blur between holidays, days off, and the kick-off of a new year, I decided to share the best of December and January together.
It was a pleasure to make my way to Brooklyn Heights last month to enjoy the flavors of recently opened La Barrita Argentinian Steakhouse and Wine Bar. This new spot is bringing Argentinian culture and authentic dishes to New York. The restaurant was brought to life thanks to restaurateur Nando Ghorchian and the creativity and passion of Sebastian Cardona who serves as the creator of this welcoming and alluring steakhouse. Keep reading to learn more about their location, delectable dishes, and amazing team!

Happy Labor Day weekend, Hauties! Do you have any fun plans to enjoy the long weekend? I’m keeping it low key this year by staying home, working and sneaking in some time to enjoy the last summer days. This might include a Labor Day brunch, lounging by the pool and a wine and cheese movie night! Talking about wine and cheese… Have you heard of Good Thins? I found these delicious and healthier alternatives to chips and crackers while aiming to make my wine and cheese night with the boyfriend healthier. Learn what I think about Good Thins snacks and how to win your very own supply on this post.
