Welcome to our new series for May, Drop a Pin. In keeping with this month's theme, Byrd's-Eye View, we'll be taking a tour of the year's top travel destinations—those places everyone on your Instagram feed seems to be visiting right now—and asking beauty-obsessed locals for their expert recommendations. From the best place for shopping indie beauty brands to the studios to sweat your way through the latest workout crazes via the brunch spots to be seen in, consider your holiday itinerary sorted.
