I was lucky enough to visit New York for the second time earlier this month, so I thought I'd pop together a photo diary with a few of my favourite photographs I had taken during my trip. New York is somewhere I could definitely see myself moving to one day, in fact one of my good friends already has and I do feel tempted to hop on a plane and join her. It reminds me so much of London except it has better make up shops (*cough* Sephora) and much more pizza, both of which I'm a pretty huge fan of to say the least. I'd absolutely love to hear more suggestions of the places to visit in NYC, so please do let me know in the comments below.
Where I ate:
Big Gay Ice Cream Shop, yep you've guessed it, they sell ice cream and is possibly one of the best places to go for it. I went for a subtle chocolate & vanilla twist ice cream, topped with pretzels and rainbow sprinkles (please note the sarcasm when I wrote subtle). Sarabeth's for the best (and rather expensive) brunch, it was a little pricey but well worth the money and it's so lovely to sit down and have a fancy breakfast right by Central Park! Artichokes Pizza, a great place to grab a slice or sit down to devour a massive pizza after walking through The Highline.
Where I shopped:
Victoria's Secret, Sephora (I went in here many, many times - huge apologies to my poor boyfriend), Barnes and Noble and Papersource (the US version of Paperchase). One of my favourite finds was Economy Candy, possibly the best place to go if you want to stock up on US sweets, they even sell Harry Potter sweets!
Where I went:
The Highline (of course), Smorgasburg; for the weekly food festival (the locations changes often and it travels all over the city), The Meatpacking District; which is great for shopping and I loved walking from Chelsea to Union Square, a few of my favourite areas in Manhattan. Finally, I've saved the best till last, one night my boyfriend convinced me to go to Madison Square Gardens to see the New York Knicks play and it was honestly one of the best things I did during our trip. It was so fun to go and watch the game being played and capture the atmosphere of a home game. I'd highly recommend checking out what they have coming up before you go as in a few weeks time Blur are playing!
