Best Meal:  Papatzul

Best Show:  Newsies

Most Outrageous:  The Forever21 in Times Square is regularly open until 2AM but was open 24/7 for the last two weeks of December.  INSANE (and yes, I was there from 10:30pm – 12:00am, don’t judge).

Checking out the new Sabon salts and soaps — my favorite bath & body products in NY.

Hopped off the plane to meet these fabulous city friends!  Jennifer Rose, Shallon and Molly – all NYC girls living the (or I should say my) dream life.  The highlight of the weekend was getting to see their pretty faces!

Watching these Salvation Army volunteers perform a dance routine while ringing the bell – I can’t even type that without smiling!!  So adorable.

Watching some sketchy guys in SoHo sell fur coats out of a minivan….so fantastically strange.

Handmade finger puppets — maybe the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Wafles & Dinges – YUM

L’Ecole – a favorite spot in SoHo.  A restaurant catered by students studying at the The International Culinary Center.

My FAVORITE booth in Bryant Park – Studio Manhattan Vintage.  They’re in the same booth space every year and Karen and I always make visiting this Florida native’s creative booth a priority.  She is so beautiful and talented and her unique designs are some of my most interesting pieces of jewelry.

Part II in photos coming next week! Thanks so much for reading – XO –

  1. There is nothing like New York in December… and I adored Newsies, too!! (Probably helped that seeing it was a lifelong dream…)

  2. All of your pictures seem so beautiful and clear. Would you mind sharing what kind of camera you use? Thanks!!

    1. Of course! It’s a canon rebel t3 and I absolutely love it. VERY user-friendly. I actually found mine on eBay from a reputable seller and got a great deal — would definitely recommend it!

  3. I am a huge fan of food carts — thank goodness Vancouver has lots.
    Love your pics! I’ve always wanted to visit NYC over the hoidays…

  4. the food looks amazing! i would kill for some flowers like those right now, so pretty. and i love your bag! looks like a great trip! i am quite jealous. 🙂

  5. So fun and makes me miss New York as I used to go there at least 3 times a year for work and it was always fun to eat, entertain, etc on the company bill. I got to see a few broadway shows in the past, stay at The Plaza a few times, and even stayed on for fun weekends.

    Not Going Out Like That
