I just returned from the lovely and chaotic week in NYC! My dear friend K moved out there last summer to pursue a job in publishing. She landed a new/amazing job a couple of weeks ago, so L and I flew out not only to celebrate that, but L’s 27th birthday as well. It was a week well spent with good food, good friends, museums, and shopping. I adore visiting New York, I don’t think I’d ever want to live there, but it is a fantastic place to holiday! I’ve already started planning my fall shopping pilgrimage to New York next fall.
Get ready for several days of photos crammed into one post.
The view from Brooklyn.
We only got lost a few times. Google maps is a lifesaver!
We went treasure hunting in Williamsburg. There were some excellent pieces, I don’t think any of the furniture was going to fit in my checked bags though, so I passed.
L and I popped over to the Highline on Easter sunday. Other than the fact that it was a bit crowded, I LOVE what they have done with the space.
If you get parched on the Highline, don’t worry, there are a few food/coffee vendors dispersed throughout.
Now this looks pretty simple, but if you are in need of a reasonably priced and delicious breakfast, pop into Jack’s Wife Freda. Eggs and Soldiers were my jam. It was so good, L and I went two days in a row. I am a bit distraught though as I think I was at this restaurant on one of the same days one of my favorite bloggers was, but different times. She took much better food photos, so take a gander at
Made the obligatory swing through Mood fabrics. I could certainly have filled up a whole suitcase full of those fabrics.
Maysville. Delicious whiskey bar (Shhhh, I drank wine). Enough said.
Steppin out on L’s birthday!
Baohaus was amazing!!! Go.
#NYCBesties quickly became our theme after seeing this written on the wall of Baohaus.
Fish Bao. It doesn’t look like much, but packs a real punch.
That was good.
Best money I ever spent on cookies.
Last night in Brooklyn wandering though Brooklyn Bridge park, ice cream in hand.
My favorite purchase of the trip!
Stay tuned for another NYC post. Happy Monday!
