Employees Only…But You’re Invited, Too!

Employees Only…But You’re Invited, Too!

It’s always fun finding a hidden gem in NYC. After all, we Magpies pride ourselves as being collectors of good finds. So we were excited to check out Employees Only recently for dinner, especially when we heard it’s completely hidden from the street. This West Village restaurant and bar, located on Hudson Street (between West 10th […]

Tan Towels: Wipe and Glow!

Tan Towels: Wipe and Glow!

How does one keep a fabulous tan (despite gloomy temps)? We Magpies recently discovered Tan Towels at Sephora, and we are uhb-sessed! They are so easy to use – you literally take a Tan Towel (it looks like a makeup remover wipe), run it all over your face and body (ahem, yes, all over)…and in […]

Blueberry Pomegranate Margaritas at Dos Caminos: Jessica Simpson loves ’em, and we do too!

There are few things we Magpies like better than margaritas and guacamole. We’re always on the hunt for great versions of both. So imagine our surprise when we were at Dos Caminos recently (we’ve been to all of the locations dozens of times) and tried literally the best margarita we’ve ever had. Drum roll please…introducing […]

Will You be Dashin’ to Dash NYC?

Will You be Dashin’ to Dash NYC?

It’s official: Dash NYC, the Kardashian sisters’ third Dash boutique, is now open for business. The store is located at 119 Spring Street in Soho – and all of Spring Street was blocked off for the opening’s madness! So that leaves us Magpies wondering…will you be dashin’ to Dash?

John May-er May Not Have Gotten Laid Saturday Night…

John May-er May Not Have Gotten Laid Saturday Night…

Halloween can be really funny, really scary, or really weird. This past Saturday night…it was all three! We Magpies were waiting for a cab outside La Esquina on Kenmare Street on Halloween Eve when all of a sudden we saw a familiar face in an elaborate Storm Troopers costume. It was John Mayer! And even though we […]

Blow Salon: For A Blowout That Doesn’t Blow

Blow Salon: For A Blowout That Doesn’t Blow

There’s nothing like a good blowout to make you feel fab before an evening out (we wrote about our love of salon blowouts here). So recently, when our hair was looking pretty unruly, we decided to give Blow a chance. There are two NYC locations of this blowout-only salon: the original, in the Meatpacking District, […]

Bachelor/Bachelorette Inside Scoop!

Bachelor/Bachelorette Inside Scoop!

If you are like the crew at Harriet Magpie, then you are suckers for true love stories – like those on “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Even if they are constructed and manipulated for reality television shows! We cried when Roberto Martinez proposed to Ali Fedotowsky; we sighed when Jason Mesnick hugged his (weird) son Ty; and we […]

Zumba – Dance ‘Til You Drop…Pounds!

Zumba – Dance ‘Til You Drop…Pounds!

The crew at Harriet Magpie was a bit skeptical when we heard about Zumba. It’s a Latin dance-like fitness program started several years ago by this very charming aerobics instructor, who, having left his regular exercise music at home, conducted his normal class with the only CD he had in his car – Latin salsa and merengue! His […]

Kevin MacDonald and Ridley Scott are doing a social documentary about the world and are asking for anyone or rather everyone, who has a decent camera to film their day on July 24, 2010 and post it on the Life in a Day channel on YouTube (youtube.com/lifeinaday) between July 24 and July 31.  They then plan […]

Where In The World Can A Girl Watch the World Cup? (Or Watch Guys Watch the World Cup?!)

World Cup Fever is spreading, and with all the hype and excitement, even the crew at Harriet Magpie has gotten the World Cup bug! (it’s hard not to, with the sounds of buzzing bees emanating from the stadiums!) So, where in the world is it possible to watch the United States try to advance (out of […]
