I had an amazing time in NYC during the 'happy holidays' at Christmas. Now that I have settled back in at home I can start sharing some of my winter wonderland adventures. Here is a little instagram snapshot of my travels around NYC.
New York was everything I thought it would be and more! Many great times were spent in cute boutiques, stationery stores, bookshops and eating wonderful food at cosy cafes like this one in Tribeca called Kitchenette. Isn't it amazing? The outside was covered in polka dots and even the inside tables were too. I enjoyed my hot coco and warm breakfast with a 'biscuit'(their term for a toast scone)while I admired their yummy baked goods, pink kawaii Christmas tree and candy cane Christmas lights - it was such a delight.
Oh yes and I did see some locations from the movies; Home Alone, You've Got Mail and Serendipity! Eeeep!
