GRAND CENTRAL STATION + THE OYSTER BAR

Ever the hungry girls in New York City, we made our way to Grand Central Station for a lunch date at The Oyster Bar. If I’m being completely honest (and I try always to be honest with you) I had no idea that there were restaurants on the bottom floor of this exquisite train terminal. Let’s have a look around.

LADURÉE + A GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED)

LADURÉE + A GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED)

Our trip to New York City was in honor of my friend Hannah’s upcoming nuptials but she was kind enough to let us go inside Ladurée to sample their infamous macarons. They were every bit as delicious as I imagined they would be! I hope to one day visit their original store in Paris as well but now I can officially say I’ve had a Ladurée macaron. Let me show you around Ladurée on Madison! Continue reading “LADURÉE + A GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED)”

5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY

5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY

I would like to start off by saying that while tropical locations are popular for girls’ trips, NYC is certainly a competitive choice as well. We had an absolute blast for my friend’s bachelorette weekend and now I’m dying to go back. We went for 3 days and managed to fit in a trip to The Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and a Broadway show. Whew! Needless to say I spent this week catching up on sleep but I’d do it all over again. I got a lot of messages about what we did and if I had any tips for those who are planning their own trips to the Big Apple. Continue reading “5 TIPS FOR VISITING NEW YORK CITY”

CHRISTMAS VACATION

CHRISTMAS VACATION

Every year around this time I wonder what it would be like to go on a big vacation at Christmas. I think it would be special to visit a new city during the season that is famous for love and good cheer. I’m sure if you were to go back to the same place any other time of year the city would leave a different impression. Christmas lights act as a sort of face lift for communities everywhere. Suddenly what was dull is sparkling and illuminated. The eye is drawn away from imperfections toward the brightest beauty. After drooling over social media posts from all over the world, here is a list of places I hope to someday spend my Christmas vacation.  Continue reading “CHRISTMAS VACATION”
