SHHH…The UWS Ditch Plains is Now Open for Lunch…and You Can Still Get a Table There!

SHHH…The UWS Ditch Plains is Now Open for Lunch…and You Can Still Get a Table There!

We were on the Upper West Side looking for a place that serves brunch all day when we remembered that Ditch Plains, one of our favorite little restaurants on Bedford Street in the West Village, had recently opened up another restaurant at 82nd street between Amsterdam and Columbus Avenue. How perfect was it that we were only a few blocks away!? […]

Was that An Earthquake In New York or Just Heads Shaking Over Lindsay Lohan’s Dress??

Was that An Earthquake In New York or Just Heads Shaking Over Lindsay Lohan’s Dress??

You have to hand it to Lindsay Lohan’s stylist (does she have one?) Not only did she select a dress that Pippa  Middleton wore to her sister’s wedding reception (in green), but she chose to change it up a little and not wear a bra. Now that’s one easy way to get some press time! Her mom, who […]

Get Naked…Everyone Is!

Get Naked…Everyone Is!

We’re pretty sure many of you Magpie makeup junkies out there are familiar with Urban Decay eyeshadows. Also, we’re sure you know that they usually cost $12 a pop. So if you wanted to buy 12 different blendable, neutral colors it would cost over $100! This is probably the reason why Urban Decay’s Limited Edition eye shadow palette, Naked (which also comes […]

For Great Dining, It’s As Easy As ABC…Kitchen,That Is!

For Great Dining, It’s As Easy As ABC…Kitchen,That Is!

We’ve been dying to go to ABC Kitchen for months, but it’s really tough to get a dinner reservation. So when one Magpie suggested we try ABC Kitchen for brunch (even though it was an absolutely beautiful day outside!) we still jumped at the chance to give it a try. And it did not disappoint. The decor is modern eclectic, with […]

Necessary Clothing Is Sooo Necessary

Necessary Clothing Is Sooo Necessary

   We Magpies are always on the lookout for clothing stores where we can stock up on the hottest trends – without spending a fortune. We used to love combing the racks for finds at Forever 21 – but recently, that store has gone majorly downhill. Which is why we were so excited to discover […]

Michael Kors Is Now Dressing…The iPhone?!

Michael Kors Is Now Dressing…The iPhone?!

Just when we thought we had everything we needed to look technologically cool, Michael Kors designs a stylish and functional wristlet (in python, gold or black patent!) to make sure we look fashionably cool as well! The iPhone fits comfortably snug inside this clever accessory; it’s easy to use and charge while it’s still in the wristlet; plus you get to protect your special little phone […]

Run, Don’t Walk to the Shoe Box Warehouse Sale

Run, Don’t Walk to the Shoe Box Warehouse Sale

All over NYC right now, the word “SALE” is pretty much in every window of every store. But don’t you just hate it when you check out the store and there’s nothing really good on sale? We Magpies do too! That’s why we must tell you what’s going on at The Shoe Box right now. There’s a huge warehouse sale […]

“Prelude” to Jennifer Aniston’s Summer Makeup

“Prelude” to Jennifer Aniston’s Summer Makeup

Jennifer Aniston has been looking great lately – effortless, cool, and most of all, happy. Obviously new beau Justin Theroux has something to do with it, but we think her new fresh summer makeup is helping, too. We loved her look at the London premiere of her film “Horrible Bosses” – and when we found out what […]

I Scream,You Scream! We All Scream For…Soft Serve Fruit?!

I Scream,You Scream! We All Scream For…Soft Serve Fruit?!

  The crew at Harriet Magpie unanimously agrees that one of our favorite desserts is ice cream anything. Not only do we think topping any pie, cake or cookie with an ice cream scoop makes it so much more delicious, but we even agree that a small scoop au naturale is the best ending to any meal.  We don’t really have a preference if it’s ice cream […]

Get Your Haute Pretzel Here!

Get Your Haute Pretzel Here!

If you’re like some of the crew at Harriet Magpie, seeing a pretzel cart in Manhattan is like seeing an oasis in a desert…minus the water. We’re always trying pretzels from the many carts around the city, hoping to find that really delish pretzel from pretzels past. Alas, we must admit we’ve gotten the extra calories […]

Rockin’ Your Body in a Body Rock Sports Bra!

Rockin’ Your Body in a Body Rock Sports Bra!

Let’s face it, Magpies – unless you’re Gisele, it’s tough to look fashionable at the gym. However, that all changed when we recently spotted Body Rock sports bras for sale at our local Equinox. Instead of being the boring, typical black or white orthopedic sports bras , these athletic bras are made to grab attention. They’re extremely […]

Crave or Save?: We’re Pumped about this Pump

Crave or Save?: We’re Pumped about this Pump

Katy Perry is one of many celebs obsessed with Brian Atwood’s “Maniac” pump in nude patent leather. We’re obsessed with this shoe too – but at $580, the price tag for a pair is pretty steep. Enter…Chinese Laundry. We recently came across these copycat pumps at Pookie and Sebastian in NYC – and at $69.99 […]

Try Spasso – You’ll Be Amused!

Lately we Magpies have been in a bit of a restaurant rut. We’ve been going back to the same favorite restaurants and we were looking to change it up and try something new. When a friend mentioned that she loved Spasso, an Italian spot in the West Village, we knew we had to check it out. […]

“Keeping up” with Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Dress Shopping

If Kim Kardashian is trying to play it cool about who is designing her wedding dress – she’s not doing the best job. Kardashian has been spotted visiting designer Vera Wang’s boutiques in New York and LA this week…leading to speculation that Wang will design her gown when she walks down the aisle with Kris […]

Well, good news for all you alcoholic-dancing Magpies out there (just keeding!).  Cross-body mini bags are back in fashion (and personally, from […]
