My sister Shelley and I spent the weekend in NYC. Shell thought it would be fun to have a sister's weekend and I couldn't have agreed more. One of the great things about living in CT is that NYC is only a short 90 minute train ride away. I was a bad little blogger and did not bring my camera. I had every good intention but I have an older one and it is just too darn bulky. I did manage to take the above photos of some of my haul. I apologize for the quality - it was late when I decided to stage these photos last night - not my best work!
We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria, which is a great central Manhattan location. The hotel is gorgeous and the staff are super friendly. Shelley and I decided to just go shopping and see where the wind took us. It seems that every time I'm in NYC I have some sort of plan or commitment - whether it is seeing a show or hosting a dinner for work - I never have the opportunity to just walk around - so that is what we did this weekend. We hit M&J Trimming , Tinsel Trading Company, and The Ink Pad which is where all of the above goodies came from. I am also excited to report that Tinsel Trading Company has opened another store directly across the street, it is called fittingly enough The Store Across the Street. They have some great scrapbooking supplies. We also hit Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill for dinner. Yummy! Another great find was a store called Fresh. They have wonderful bath products and perfumes. I bought the Sugar Lemon perfume and it is fabulous. I easily get headaches but this scent is light and summer fresh (no pun intended LOL). We also made a pit stop at The Magnolia Bakery where I promptly ate two cupcakes (one vanilla and one chocolate!) in under 2 minutes! Well worth the splurge in calories!
I'm off to visit all of you and catch up on your activities!
