In New York, new restaurants open every day of every week. It's hard to keep up, but when I see one opening in my neighborhood, I want to try it. Because who knows, it might become my new local favorite. I patiently waited for Atla to open as I walked past it nearly every day for the last month. Last week, I finally tried this new Mexican place when I met a friend for brunch.

My first half-marathon is next week Sunday! One more week until I run two rounds in Central Park together with thousands of other women at the Shape Women's Half Marathon. I'm excited and nervous at the same time, but I've been training a lot the last three weeks since my second update. The Westside Highway is still my favorite place to run, but I changed it up with a run in Central Park. Keep reading if you want to know how I'm preparing for my first ever half marathon!

If there's one type of fast food I could choose, it would always be pizza (or fries). I love making pizza at home (perfect ones, actually), but in New York, there are places which sell slices of pizza on basically every street corner. But if you want a real, proper, huge pizza you need to go to Rubirosa. In my opinion (and Bella Hadid), the best pizza in the city.

I'd heard rumors about an amazing little brunch spot in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. So on a very sunny and warm Sunday, I decided to make the trek over to Brooklyn so I could finally try those famous Five Leaves pancakes. When we arrived, we were told we'd have to wait more than an hour to get a table so we walked around Greenpoint for a while. Was it worth the wait? Find out..

Spring has officially sprung in New York! It took some time, but the cherry blossoms are in full bloom and we've had the first hot days in the city. I spent quite a few days exploring Brooklyn and used the good weather as an opportunity to go for a couple of sunset runs along the Westside Highway. Keep on reading if you want to see what I discovered in New York in the last two weeks!

I wrote a similar post back in February after I'd been in New York for three weeks. Every day I discover things I didn't know, things that surprise me but also things that make me laugh a bit. In this post, I will share a couple more observations I made over the last few weeks. I hope some of my fellow aspiring New Yorkers can relate!

I'd seen INDAY's colorful lunch bowls on several Instagram accounts, but I'd never gotten around to go there since it's neither near where I live or where I go to uni. But a couple weeks ago I was in Midtown, it was 5 pm and I hadn't eaten lunch. Luckily, I walked right by INDAY so it was the perfect opportunity to finally try these delicious vegan bowls!
