My Instagram-Friendly Guide To NYC

This post is sponsored by Capital One.

I absolutely love this time of year. Not only does the transition to fFall get me excited for the holidays and cozier fashion, but I tend to visit New York more frequently for Fashion Week events. It’s one of my favorite cities in the world, and I’ve been so many times that it feels like a home away from home. NYC is the absolute best city for dining and entertainment –delicious restaurants of every style of food, Broadway shows, exciting concerts and more are right at your fingertips. The perfect place to earn rewards from the Capital One Savor Card, which gives 4% cashback on dining and entertainment!

Today I’m showing you my Instagram-friendly guide to exploring some of my New York gems. If you’re a foodie or someone who likes to experience all the exciting things your city has to offer, this card is for you. Check it out here, so that you can earn rewards by checking out all the places I’ve listed below. Don’t forget to share your favorite New York haunts with me too in the comments!

Brooklyn Bridge: You’ve probably seen this bridge in more movies and shows than you realize, and it makes a gorgeous backdrop for a photo. Not only can you explore the bridge with a guided tour, but they even show movies in Brooklyn Bridge park during the Summer! After snapping some gorgeous pics at the bridge, take a stroll or short taxi ride over to Flower Shop in the Lower East Side for oysters and fun craft cocktails.
Public Library: Another New York landmark that has made an appearanceor two in many films. I’m a bookworm, so I could spend all day perusing the aisles here –plus, they have an epic bookshop that is not to be missed. The location on 5th Avenue is my favorite!
Street Vendors: Don’t miss the chance to pose with (and devour) one of the giant pretzels sold at any of the street vendors around town. They’re delicious, and hilarious.
The Arches inside Central Park: Central Park has a number of bridges that create stunning archways, perfect for snapping an Insta in front of.
The Highline Walk: This elevated park walkway is not only a great way to view the city, but it has tons of cute shops, restaurants and cafes worth dropping into nearby as well.
Times Square for last minute Broadway theatre tickets: A little known fact: sometimes you can get same-day tickets at different theaters for a discount price by showing up at the box office. They may have surplus tickets right before showtime, and very often offer them at a lower price than you’d be able to find online.
Argosy Book Store: This epic bookstore is six stories and houses a huge array of antiquarian and out-of-print volumes, and has been in business since 1925. If you’re a bookworm like me, it’s a must!
Audio Tour of SOHO: There are several apps that offer walking tours right on your phone. The SoHo one is my favorite, as it takes you through some fascinating and famous places in art and film.
Vesuvio Bakery: The name of this iconic bakery has since been changed to Birdbath Neighborhood Green Bakery, but you’ll still see its old signage outside. It opened in 1920 and has an adorable green storefront that is great for snapping apic in front of (with a yummy pastry in hand, of course!).
Via Carota: One of my favorite Italian restaurants in NYC (which is saying a lot) – it is gorgeous inside and the food presentation is just perfect for the ‘gram.

  • Happy Memorial Day weekend!
I can’t even handle the cuteness of this little gardener 🌱 👶
Ps. Our matching dresses are @shopdoen
  • How fascinating is this: the part of our brain controlling memory and emotion, is directly linked to the nerve at the back of our nose. Meaning, certain smells have the ability to completely change our mood and outlook on life. Here's a deeper dive into how you can instantly improve your mood with the strike of a match or a spritz of perfume - link in bio ⠀⠀
  • Prepping for #MemorialDay weekend with some early pool time @akaweho @bikinicultureofficial

  • I wish there was a magic wand to 1) not feel so tired, and 2) get rid of the dark circles under my eyes! Agreed? A double latte helps with the former, and omg - @no7usa Dark Spot Correcting Booster Serum has helped enormously with the latter. Remember I talked about this brand a few months back? I've used it since I was a teen in the UK and I'm thrilled I can easily buy it in the US. Grab yours @Walgreens and tell me how you like it! #No7Laboratories #No7USA #ad
  • One of my best secret shopping spots? @Ebayfashion! You wouldn’t believe the designer gems I’ve found on there- especially designer handbags. Their authenticate program means you can shop luxury jewelry, watches and bags with full confidence! http://liketk.it/2BTs3 #liketkit @liketoknow.it #eBaystyle #HappeningoneBay #ad
  • Did you know that in the US, a woman still makes only 80% of what her male counterpart does? In the UK last year, men made nearly 12% more than women for the same jobs. The wage gap is real, and still an issue. So, what can YOU do right now at work to be taken more seriously, and help close this gap? Click the link in my bio to read the tips I've learned over the years, and make sure to tell me yours in the comments! http://liketk.it/2BTrw #liketkit @liketoknow.it ⠀
  • Polka dots in Venice Beach 🏖
  • Who's ready for a new Summer thriller to read?? #TheNightBefore by @wendywalkerauthor is one of the few books that can keep me up past 10pm these days (any mums out there relate?), in fact I can't put it down whenever I get a free minute to read. It's finally on sale now - check the link in my stories to purchase, and let's start a Summer book club. But whatever you do, do NOT spoil the end for me just yet! #InPartnershipwithWenderWalker
  • Inflammation is a buzzword lately. It’s been linked to more serious illnesses than I can count, weight-gain, bad skin - and now studies have linked it to depression. People are now eating anti-inflammatory foods in LA like locusts! So much so, there’s currently a celery ‘shortage’, and the price of celery juice (another massive trend) has risen by 200%. Gisele and Tom Brady famously follow an anti-inflammatory diet, designed by their chef. So what IS inflammation, and how do we reverse it? Click the link in my bio for some⠀⠀
mind-blowing health info, and to try my tropical turmeric smoothie bowl (it’s anti-inflammatory!)🍍 http://liketk.it/2BSjG #liketkit @liketoknow.it ⠀⠀
  • One bonus of the cold (‘cold’) weather in LA... I can wear my new vinyl trousers
  • I always remember reading an interview with a movie star, who called her stretch marks, her ‘tiger stripes’. I’ve had mine since I was 18, and always felt very self-conscious. Reading that interview flicked a switch for me- and totally changed my perspective. Since then, I’ve worked with women of ALL shapes, ages and backgrounds, to help them feel more confident in their skin: sometimes when I’m filming a makeover show, sometimes if I’m writing an article, or working with a charity like Step Up. Whether that’s how to walk into an interview, how to prep a resumé, what to wear, or how to look after your body- in particular- your skin. A few years ago, I wrote a book (Front Roe), about it all. Then I had a baby, and my relationship with my body changed again, for the better. I was in absolute AWE at what the female body can achieve. Listen, every single one of us has body hang ups, cellulite, scars, shapes we don’t always love. But what it took me time to slowly realize, is that our bodies are freaking hard-working, clever, miraculous machines. They are! So I’ve written about some of the tips I’ve used in the past to feel more body confident (and ps, the science behind it all, is fascinating). Click the link in my bio to read. And please as always, share some body confidence journeys of your own below... @Olay #OlaySun #FaceAnything #ad
  • Polka dots and caffeine... I’m happy
