NYC Bound

Like most ladies New York City has a piece of my heart!  The spirit of the city is indescribable, just being there makes me happy.  Naturally I can't wait to be heading up there for Memorial Day weekend to celebrate my friends 30th Birthday.

As its just the two of us for a girls weekend we have decided to not be tourists & try to enjoy the city like a New Yorker would.  We plan to visit markets, cafes, museums & enjoy the fact that its Fleet Week. They are playing Top Gun at sunset on the deck of the Intrepid!  Crazy but I've never seen the movie so what a more epic way to see it & be surrounded by hot soldiers. 

I am also hoping to see the Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations exhibit.  Directed by the Iconic Baz Luhrmann they focus on how both Italian designs from different eras explore similar themes via extremely different approaches.  Just watching the videos excites/intrigues the Fashion History lover inside me. 

Other than the movie & museum we have nothing official planned so I would love to hear any recommendations you have. Tell me about the hole in the wall with the best fries or the great roof top bar hidden in the concrete jungle!  

P.S At the opening of the Exhibit, the fabulous Met Ball, how gorgeous did Katherine McPhee look in Elie Saab?


  1. watching Top Gun alongside men in uniform... I would die! Have a great time :)

  2. orange!! that's a bold colour isn't it?

    gosh, i haven't been to new york since 2007 so i can't recommend anything but enjoy!
