I went to the Big Apple last week and came back an obsessed Yankee. Spending half the trip with my family and half with one of my best friends, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I got to see and do it all. While I could write for days about everything I love, I will leave you with a few of my faves. Which just means, you must take a trip and go exploring on your own!
Beauty and Essex – Literally one of my favorite places I’ve ever been. With the remarkable food and exceptional ambiance, this is definitely one of New York’s trendiest hot spots. Even if you aren’t hungry for a huge meal, this is perfect for a few (or a lot!) cocktails and great people watching. And it obviously helps that I saw Kim Kardashian dining in. Must give credit to my dad for spotting her beau, Kris Humphries, and going up to talk to her with me. She told him happy birthday and looked even more fabulous in person. Can you imagine how much I was freaking out?? #highlightofmytrip.
Central Park – Right smack in the middle of the city, this in an obvious NYC must. Whether you are a local New Yorker or a visiting tourist; this is the place to be. Everything about it is so peaceful and beautiful, and it’s great exercise, too! And I’m loving the pink trees – do you think they could FedEx me one? Not trying to be creepy, but definitely take a close look at people in hats pushing strollers. #acelebfavorite
Yankees Game – We rode the subway (yes…I rode it!!) to get to the new stadium, which is amazing. I got to see the Yanks play the Texas Rangers, which was super fun for me. I was rooting for both teams, but what I was rooting most for was the garlic french-fries. I mean, they were absolutely incredible and I wish I had some at this very moment. 40 degrees and raining, we sucked it up, bought beanies, and froze our little butts of while watching the Yankees take the win.
Other things to nosh on: hot dogs, Philly cheese steak sandwich, Chicken Fingers, nachos, peanuts, ice cream, cotton candy. Really though, what don’t they have? And if you’re on a diet – no worries – every item has the calories next to it so you can pick and choose wisely. #doesitreallymatter?
Visit the Bs – Obviously, we all know that the shopping in this city is incredible. If you have a shopping problem like me, this will be the best thing that has ever happened to you. Bergdorfs, Bloomies, Barneys, Bendels… need I say more? #shopoholicandproudofit
Can’t wait to go back. Who’s with me?!! Until next time…
You know you love me!
