An Ode To The OG New York Bitch, Cruel Intentions' Kathryn Merteuil

Frat boys and finance bros alike have their Patrick Bateman, free spirited Cali girls have Cher from Clueless, and we cosmopolitan ladies have Kathryn. She is emblematic of so many things we should aspire to be: unabashedly confident, sexy, and intelligent. To this day, we still see so many guys that want an Annette in the streets and a Kathryn in the sheets, but that's only because they can't hold a conversation with someone as bold and alluring as Kathryn without either peeing their Brooks Brothers boxers out of fear or experiencing premature ejaculation out of arousal and...well, fear.

It's time to raise a glass to the HBIC of the UES, who in turn raises her head high and her middle finger even higher. Check out some reasons why our favorite unrepentant vixen should be every New York woman's patron saint.


uptown vs. downtown: which new yorker are you?

There are two types of people in New York City: Uptown or Downtown. It honestly doesn't matter what your address is, because who actually spends time in their apartment? It's all about your aesthetic and lifestyle! So where do you fit in?

14 affirmations for the new york it girl

Even though we live in a city as superficial and image-obsessed as New York City, living authentically and all that profound New Age bullshit is all the rage right now. Whether those holistic, bohemian practices are too ridiculous to work or not, we still love trying them out! One practice that's been proven to have a never-ending list of benefits? Meditation. That's right, spending just 10 minutes a day trying to center yourself has been proven to make you happier, make you look younger, improve your memory, and so much more. The point of meditation is to loosen a vice grip you have on reality and to separate it from any defeatist or troublesome thoughts that may hinder your personal growth. Affirmations help develop a meditation mindset, so we crafted some perfect ones that would be fitting for a cosmopolitan chick (or bro!) to get their Namaste on!
