Holiday Memories: New York New York!

So it's been more than a month since I've returned from my US holiday so it seemed about time to finally post about New York! It may seem cliched but NYC is of course a place where dreams are made and dreams are conquered and my stay there was absolutely awe inspiring. I was lucky enough to be staying with a generous friend who is a truly a New Yorker and showed me around some of the less known places.

Anyway the food and the shopping was definitely a highlight but taking in the atmosphere and vibe of Summer in New York was something special.

I'll make sure to post about my more memorable meals in future posts but here are some of my photo highlights:
Carrie's apartment from SATC!

On the Highline - I was trying to artfully capture the water feature

Alexander McQueen @ The Met was just spectacular

Jackson Pollack at MoMA

American Ballet Theatre's Swan Lake with Paloma Herrera
Alicia Keys concert at Beacon Theatre
Going to Alicia Keys' intimate acoustic performance was absolutely mind blowing. She's such a talent and hearing the hometown crowd going mad was part of the fun!

Neon Times Square
Brooklyn Bridge 'love locks'
I walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and it was so lovely basking in the sun. I did it on my last day there and it was a nice end to a brilliant holiday.

You know what I loved as well? Being able to traipse around and see all the SATC, Gossip Girl and The City hotspots. I love my TV shows so it was cool to just be able to go "Oh I remember this from <insert TV show here>"

A picture tells a thousand words right? I had hundreds (closer to thousand actually) photos just from NYC so this was just a snippet and scrolling through them again makes me smile at all the fabulous times I had! I can't wait till I get to go back :)


  1. Loooove NYC! Great pics. I can't wait to go back there again one day and take hubby (he's been everywhere but NYC).

  2. Thanks! Oh I hope you get to take your hubby there soon - it's such a great place for couples too :)
