NYC In July - A Travel Diary

Right on the heels of my trip to Miami, Brian and I were lucky enough to find a free weekend to jet off to New York and enjoy each other's company. I absolutely love NYC, and the location especially holds a special place in our relationship - it was our first trip together as a couple, and I'll never forget how exciting seeing New York City for the first time together was.

Years later, and countless trips to the Big Apple under our belts, the itinerary is very different. Gone are the days of frantically running around the city from attraction to attraction just to say that we've done it. The recent pace is much more relaxed, and as such this post will serve as more of a travel diary then a travel guide. Add a record-breaking heatwave into the mix, and we barely ventured outside of lower Manhattan - it was hot. All things considered, it was a great trip and we took it at a snail's pace -nice and relaxing.

Here are a few of the highlights from the trip. It's a different type of post - very casual, much like the mood of the weekend. Check out my last New York City recap post for more of an itinerary - to be honest, we did almost everything exactly the same this time around! Creatures of habit for sure.

Pietro Nolita is always one of my first stops. Great restaurant and so much PINK!

The Sézane store is Soho was everything that I wanted it to be, and then some.

This is a corner is Sézane that spoke to my little pink heart.

Even though I was technically on vacation, the pink hunting never stops. This was spotted at Ladurée Soho

It was so hot - smiling through the sweat.

That should tell you everything you need to know about me.

Give me all of the bubble tea from Boba Guys - a huge win, especially since they have non-dairy alternatives
(for those of us who love bubble tea, you know how hard this is to find!)

What do you guys think? Do you love New York City as much as I do? What are your favourite things to do in The Big Apple? Let me know!

  2. I am amazed at the amount of junk that there is online out there catering to the make money online from home crowd, touting selling travel as the route to freedom and riches. romantic places to stay in california

  4. Travelling, especially international travels, is a form of education for the travellers as they have an opportunity to see new environments, meet new people, and learn how things are done elsewhere.cost of a disney vacation

  5. Although business travel is an essential and probable part of most businesses, collingwood ski chalets for sale is doesn't come without risks. A company has a duty of care to its employees. This means it has a legal (and moral) obligation to elude risk of injury to an employee during a business trip, as much as possible.
