Donald Trump and Caitlyn Jenner, what an unlikely pair. While they may have stuck to their respective social cliques, they were both in attendance at last night's annual Time 100 Gala, which celebrated the most influential people of the year. With big names in fashion, entertainment, and media everywhere we looked, it was hard to decide who the biggest star there actually was. The best moment of the night, however, is easy: Caitlyn raising a toast and telling Donald Trump she used the restroom at Trump Tower: "I obeyed all the rules, I promise you, I didn't throw any feminine products down the toilet." Touché, Caitlyn Jenner.
Your dreams of ClassPass may be coming to a screeching halt. ClassPass established itself as the online service that makes in-demand boutique fitness studios available while keeping the price down with a deal of a single monthly fee. At the beginning of 2015, the NYC membership service was a mere $95 per month, so when you (finally) got off the waitlist, joining seemed like the obvious choice.
It's been over 10 years since the series finale of Sex and the City, and still, every friend group has a designated character. There are the self-proclaimed Carries of the world, the proud Samanthas, and the bashful Charlottes, but for some reason no one wants to be (or admit to being) a Miranda. She's like the Sporty Spice of SATC, the last one picked on the team. But why? She's a strong career gal, fiercely independent, and speaks to the cynic in all of us. Whether you like it or not, Miranda Hobbes is you, she's me, and she's pretty freakin' fabulous.

If Leonardo DiCaprio was the leader of the Pussy Posse before, now that he has an Oscar on his nightstand, he's truly unstoppable. Why should he slow down now? The serial modelizer is back at it with the thin blondes (daaaaamn, Leo!) and this time the target of his affections is a stunning, albeit 12-year-old model named Roxy Horner.
It may be "Pretzel Day" across the nation, but no one does them quite like New York. Yes, you can get an authentic classic from tourist-priced stands across the city, or you can indulge in a flavorful favorite from specialty shops such as Sigmund's and Fatty Sundays. Whether you go for salty or sweet, though, be warned: these pretzels will make you thirsty.
Forget the ramen burger, 2016's newest Smorgasburg vendor additions are definitively off the hook. The following 10 joints all hail from international origins so you can expect mouthwatering Berlin-style döner kebab from Kotti, savory breakfast pancakes in the form of O.G. Shanghai-style jianbing, Argentinian street food wonder: the choripan, and much much more. Just be prepared for the huge crowds and long lines that are inevitably to be found.
Just a few weeks back, stepping out of my apartment, I made a right on Prince Street instead of a left. Crazy. Insane, Life changing. I know. Aside from learning that it's apparently been a bit since I properly Soho strolled, I also learned that oblivious me was now spitting distance from a suspiciously popular new spot. Like, I'm talking first few weeks of by CHLOE. popular. The new cool kid in town's name? Joe & The Juice.
