I'm BAAACCCKKKK! I had THE MOST AMAZING TIME OF MY LIFE in New York! I could write a novel about my experience..literally. So I will keep it short and sweet on this blog and will probably write another one about all of my experiences while there. I went with two of my friends that I met my freshman year in college..Leo and Amanda. The three of us are so different, but together we work well and we know how to get down and have a fun time! :)

 Leo, Me & Amanda- The Collective, Meat Packing District 

Here is a quick rundown of some key moments: Planes, trains, taxi-cabs, subway, cold weather, hot weather, snow, statue of liberty, empire state building, wall street, china town, little italy, soho, meatpacking district, times square, rockefeller center, the marriot, st. patrick's cathedral, natural history museum, central park, long island, guidos and guidettes, greenwich, nightclubs, foreigners, bar-hopping, drinks at 3am and an experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life! :) 

 Bryant Park
 Lemon Drop in Chelsea
 Amanda and I- Natural History Musuem

 Wall Street- If I turned around and shot the picture, you would see a movie being filmed.
 View from our Room- We stayed one block from Times Square
Times Square
Statue of Liberty- It was 66 degrees and warm this day
 This is how it looked outside the last morning we were there! Thank you weather for behaving during our vacation!

 Onto the goodies I bought while in NY


No trip to NY is complete without a trip to China Town! "Watches" I bought a Chanel and a Louis Vuitton from uh...the street. We followed a little Chinese lady into a store with blacked out windows, where she proceeded to unlock suitcases and inside were the goods. They are really good quality fakes..I am totally happy with them..even though it wasn't totally legal to get it. But, hey - that was part of the fun! 

 I can never have too much jewelry! I love these rings! These were from the cutest jewelry store  in SOHO. The prices were really reasonable too! They do have an online website..I just need to find the card with the website that is buried in my luggage..I definitely plan on ordering some online! 
I thought these letters were too cute to pass up! I got one for my name and one for the BF. I'm going to hang them somewhere in the house. 


Of course I had to pick up some typical New York souvenirs! Noelle- one of the mugs is for you! The other is for my Mom :) 

I am already planning my next trip back to New York in the fall. I have crossed one of the to-dos off my bucket list! I made it to New York by the time I was 25 years old and it certainly didn't let me down! New York- Thank you for showing me the time of my life. I will see you soon! :)
