I've kept this one pretty quiet: we're going to New York next week!

For my 30th birthday in July, Jack bought us a trip to New York. We always talked about going on holiday to NYC for Halloween, so what better excuse is there than turning 30? I've visited several places in the US but never New York, so I am incredibly excited. I have been dreaming of visiting the Natural History Museum, dressing up as a spook, eating all the delicious food, and getting lost in Sephora.

I've scheduled daily posts while I am away but I'd love it if you came along for the ride by joining us both on Instagram where we will be sharing our adventure (my Instagram and Jack's Instagram).

  11. My goodness, awesome post! u am a new York obsessive (just absolutely love the place), and have spent probably three weeks in total there over three different trips. I'd highly recommend shopping/wandering the soho/noho areas,and walking bleeker street... And walking the loop from manhatten, over manhatten bridge and returning the walk over Brooklyn bridge... But then I'm a structure / building /bridge lover... Enough it all!!!! I'm mega excited for you! (plus the exchange rate for us is pretty great at the moment too!!)

  14. Thank you so much for the suggestions; I prefer to do the non-touristy stuff so admiring the architecture is a fantastic suggestion! Oooh.. I didn't know that about the exchange rate (yeahh, I'm leaving getting my dollar sorted pretty late..)

  15. Thank you - I'm excited to share all the fun stuff when I get back!

  16. It's only racist if you think it's racist.

    It was OBVIOUSLY meant and used in the traditional sense: ghost, spectre, ghoul because that is THE MOST commonly understood meaning of the word.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Me too! Although I'm not thinking of picking up too much stuff to be honest. Make-up is make-up wherever you go.. but I will buy a few treats!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you~~
    I love this backpack and I think (aside from a simple tote) it's the only bag I'm going to take.

  19. I will DEFINITELY be instagramming everything! And thank you, I'm sure I'll have an amazing time!

  20. Ahhh, AMAZING! If you have any suggestions that would be fantastic, thank you! We're not keen on doing the tourist-y things so suggestions from New Yorkers would be great.

  28. I don't know what kind of mascara you prefer, but my favorite is Punker by Ardency Inn. It's not carried at the Sephora locations in my city, so I order it online, but it is in the NYC stores. It's the only mascara that has ever made me look like I'm wearing false lashes.

  41. You're going to love it there! I used to vacation there every summer with my family but I stopped going with them when England became a 'thing' for me. The last time I was in NYC was in 2010 and I'm really starting to miss it. Maybe next year will be the year I go back :) xx

    Please let me apologize. I'm not accusing you of being racist or using the word in a racist way, but it is not commonly used in the US in the way you are using it. I don't mean to offend you, but I also don't want you to be misunderstood when you are here. We use the word spooky, but we don't generally refer to ghosts as anything but ghosts. It's just not an American term. We loosely speak the same language, and unfortunately in the US, we see MANY things in racial terms. It's unfortunate, but we are not a post-racial society.


    No matter, I hope you have a great time in NYC. It's truly a fabulous place to live or to visit.

  45. All I know is whenever I spend time with friends, I always walk around the east village. I start around union square and head on over to 3rd or 1st ave and walk down. I recommend walking around there because its full of ~hip young thangs~ and cool places to eat and look around. I recommend the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop for some nifty ice cream (I went at night on a weekend and it was super busy, but really fun), Pomme Frites (for amazing french fries and dipping sauce galore), Amorino (for amazing gelato), and getting a slice at Two Bros Pizza (because it's cheap if you need a snack). Also, of course, I recommend all of the museums (the MET, MoMA, etc). Also central park! I know it's getting chilly, but I always love a walk around central park.
