I hope that your 2016 is off to a fantastic start 🙂 I started the new year off with a quick trip to New York City with my boyfriend, Julian, in celebration of his 25th birthday! We were only in NYC for a few days, but we managed to fit in just about everything on our to-do list.
The highlights of our trip include taking the subway to Brooklyn for a Nets game, enjoying an Afternoon Tea at The Plaza Hotel, visiting SoHo’s amazing consignment shops, grabbing lunch with a fantastic view on the top floor of Saks 5th Avenue, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, eating brunch at Laduree, walking through Central Park, and only getting lost on the subway one time! We were on our feet the whole time and pretty tired from the flight but it was totally worth it. I have to say that my absolute favorite parts of the trip were ice skating and experiencing my first snowfall (I have been to the snow before, but I have never experienced the snow actually falling!).
The only thing that I really wish I had gotten to show Julian in NYC is the view from the One World Observatory. I got to experience the incredible view of NYC from the One World Trade Center just last year when I visited Conde Nast’s headquarters for their Teen Vogue event and would have loved for Julian to see it as well! The pictures I showed him from my trip of the view just didn’t do it justice! Unfortunately, it was super cloudy and snowing on the day that we were exploring by the One World Trade Center, so we decided to save visiting the Observatory for another trip when it was clear enough to see the view. It is at the top of our list for our next visit (whenever that may be).
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy these photos of our trip! 🙂 If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section!
