Going Back

I can't believe this was taken just over 3 years ago. It blows my mind.

I'm so excited. You may have guessed why. I'm going baaackkk! 

Sadly, not forever. Just a holiday, after Easter. But it'll be my first time back in NYC since I left in September 08, and therefore likely to be quite emotional. 

But I don't want to spend my whole time there blubbering like a big girl - I'm also SUPER excited about visiting some of my old favourite places: Bubbies, Brooklyn Bridge (♥), Guggenheim, Central Park in the springtime, cannoli in Little Italy, maybe a little Magnolia visit for old times sake and then a stroll along Bleeker, Banana Republic/J Crew/Sephora at non-redonculous prices, a show or two on Broadway, Cafe Wha?: MY GOD the list is endless!


But I also have a huge long list of things that I want to do that I haven't done yet. Balthazar, Abraco, Momofuko, and the recently re-opened for brunch (BRUNCH - only my most favouritist thing!) Minetta Tavern are just a few of the places I want to eat my way through. And of course since I left, there's Topshop NYC to check out (and laugh at the extortionate prices), and I'm desperate to see the High Line Gardens.

Miracle on 34th St

Basically I have way too much stuff to do and not enough time to do it. Some editing will be needed.

But it's going to be magical, amazing and beautiful. I can't frigging wait.

Aw, I'm so glad for you that you finally get to go back! :) Even if for a little while, but you get the chance to do all the things on your list :)

So jealous you're going to NYC and get to visit all these amazing places. I've only been for 24hours and didn't really get to see that much but I'm desperate to go back =)

Nesha: You will love it! I will indeed love it! Let's face it, everybody bloody loves it!

Filipa: Yay! I KNOOOW! I'm so excited, I really hope I have enough time to tick everything off!

Hannah: I'm lucky that I've done all the touristy stuff a million times over, so I can focus on the hidden gems!
