I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

Back from The Big Apple...

It's true...New York really is as amazing as they say it is.
If you ever get the opportunity to go, I would say take it.

Now I have to admit we didn't stay in the most glamorous hotel in New York City, in fact we stayed in a hostel and unless you have stayed in a hostel I don't think you will be able to imagine how horrible it was.

However, I looked on the bright side; we would only be sleeping there and after all it is the city that never sleeps so there wouldn't be much of that going on...

and there wasn't. The night we got there, ignoring our jeg lag and serious tiredness we decided to take a trip to Times Square. It was completely overwhelming, espically at night.

The friday we went on the Sex and The City Tour, which was fun! Here's the library that Carrie runs from on her wedding day...

...and us girls eating cupcakes in the same place as Carrie and Miranda did!

That evening we went ice skating in central park, which was the highlight of my time in New York. Ice-skating whilst looking at the pretty christmas lights and the huge lit up city ahead of me, was just amazing!

We topped off the evening with a trip to the hard rock cafe in Times Square.

The Saturday was just as fun. We started off the day by taking the Statten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty. We then went shopping for the rest of the day and for the evening took a trip to a street called Little Italy where we had a gorgeous meal in an italian restaurant.

We then got the subway back, eventually and me and my friend decided to have a night out in New York- that was a fun and eventful night! We ended up being taken to a gay club which we didn't realise until we were in there! It was a fun night either way.

Our last day in New York- Sunday. First stop The Empire State Building which had some stunning sights but I couldn't stay out there for long as it was so windy! We then had some nice lunch followed by some last minute shopping at Macy's and Bloomingdales...

Now I definately am in the christmas spirit!
