I’ve been living in New York for almost 3 years and am still so enamored with this city. I never tire of meandering down the same streets in Soho, popping into my favorite boutique stores or hanging out in cafes watching the world go by.

For those unfamiliar with New York, below are 5 fun things to do the next time you’re in Soho:

  1. Sweat it out at ModelFit
    ModelFit’s Cardio Dance classes are my favorite way to work up a sweat. Their playlists are always on point and the instructors are friendly and accomodating. You don’t need any dance experience and there isn’t a choreography you have to master by the end of the class. You simply mimic the instructors easy and fun dance steps.  
  2. Grab lunch at Two Hands



    After your workout is done, take a short walk to the popular Australian cafe, Two Hands. There’s always a wait, even on weekday mornings, but it’s worth it. I love their scrambled eggs (so fluffy) and chai latte. You can always order food to go if you prefer not to wait.
  3. Pick up some treats at Cha Cha Matcha



    Just around the corner is the wildly popular Cha Cha Matcha. It’s hard to miss with its iconic millennial pink awning and interior. Grab a bottle of Health-Ade kombucha and treat yourself to their heavenly matcha soft serve. You won’t regret it!


  4. Shop at Reformation



    Next up is a little retail therapy. A quick 5 minute walk takes you to Reformation, an eco-friendly fashion store that counts celebrities and supermodels such as Taylor Swift, Dakota Fanning, Karlie Kloss and Emily Ratajkowski as fans.

Relax in HigherDOSE’s Infrared Sauna



A few steps away is luxury hotel 11 Howard, where you’ll find HigherDOSE’s infrared saunas on the third floor. Infrared saunas boast a ton of benefits such as detoxification, relaxation, weight loss and improved circulation. You can pre-book either a 30 or 60 minute session for up to two people. You can also hook up your phone to their sound system and blast your favorite chill playlist. Another great thing about the 11 Howard location is that you can step into your private shower to rinse off and freshen up.
