New York City Day 6: Meeting Harry Styles and Times Square One Last Time

Today was literally the perfect way to end our trip. We decided this morning just to spend a little while shopping in time square. After that it was almost time for our plane. So we walked back to the apartment to get our stuff. As we were walking my friend saw someone and says that looks like Harry Styles. Then we realized it was. It was literally just us who noticed him so I went up and asked if we could take a picture. He said of course! And then said I’m Harry what’s your names? So we told him then he asked if we would like to cross the street and then take the picture. So we did and this was the result.

New York City Day 6: Top of the Rock, Wall Street, and Reunited with a Wonderful Friend

We started out our day by going to Top of the Rock. I had never been before so it was exciting. I have been to NYC but like I said I’ve never been to Top of the Rock, or up in any of the really tall buildings, so I never realized the magnitude of this city. It’s huge! I knew it was big but I don’t think you realize just how big until you’ve seen it from this high up.

IMG_1194.JPG The final thing we had on the agenda was to meet up with a wonderful friend who lives in the city. She took us to dinner at a Thai restaurant which was super good! It was just really awesome to see her and catch up.

New York City Day 5: Central Park, Hillsong NYC, and Macy’s

Today we had a late start because we were all so tired. Eventually we made it out the door and to Central Park. I love Central Park it’s one of my favorite parts of the city. It’s so pretty especially during winter. We wondered around for quite a few hours and it was so nice to just relax in the midst of such a busy city.

IMG_0970.JPGAfter Central Park we all wanted to go to church and there’s no other place i would rather be than Hillsong NYC. I feel so refreshed after going. Pastor Carl Lentz talked on gratitude today. I instantly felt convicted. My favorite quote was “God doesn’t need to change your circumstances, you need to change your spirit.” I feel like so often I fall into wanting my surroundings and circumstances to change when really I need to check my heart and spirit. It was just a great service.

IMG_0946.JPGThe final thing we did was Macy’s. It was a lot of fun and so big!

New York City Day 4: Shopping, Brunch, Bryant Park Christmas Market, and Ellens Stardust Diner

Yet again we shopped even more today which I don’t mind at all! We hit up Topshop which I love because we don’t have one where I live. We also hit up Dash and a few other stores. It was a nice slow morning. We also did brunch at this really cool organic restaurant. I ordered a grilled cheese and it was great!

IMG_0792.JPGAfter that we went to Chinatown which I’m not a huge fan of but I thought my friends should see it because they never have. After that we headed to the Christmas market in Bryant Park. We absolutely loved it. There are tons of shops and food stands. I bought a super yummy Crêpe. The area was super busy but still a lot of fun.

IMG_0794.JPG To finish off the day my friend really wanted to go to Ellens Stardust Diner. I had never been so I was up for it. I wasn’t disappointed. The food was really good plus you sort of got a show while eating as well.

New York City Day 3: Soho, Fancy Dinner, and Aladdin on Broadway

Another beautiful day here in NYC! We started our day a little late because it was a late night. So we walked to Soho and hit up quite a few shops. One of the many we hit up was the e.l.f Studio Store. It was awesome! Talk about makeup heaven! We got a lot of stuff as you can see!

IMG_0595.JPG After shopping a bit more and seeing a few sights we came back to where we are staying and got ready. When we were ready to go we called an Uber to pick us up. We were shocked when we got picked up in a black escalade. I had never been in that nice of a Uber so it was really cool. We ate at this Italian restaurant called La Messeria. It was super good!

IMG_0724.JPG After dinner we had some time to kill so we decided to hangout in Times Square for a bit since it was close.

IMG_0715.JPG It was finally time for our Broadway show. We went and saw Aladdin and it was amazing. Such a cute and fun show. I literally smiled the whole time. It was just amazing that’s the best word to describe it.

New York City Day 2: Radio City Rockettes, Times Square, and Rockefeller Center

What a day its been in NYC! I feel like we have done so much. We started out our morning by seeing the Radio City Rockettes. Since I was little I always watched the Rockettes on TV with my Mimi and now I finally got to see them and it truly was spectacular.

IMG_0584.JPG After the show we were all super hungry so we headed over to Times Square and ate at Shake Shack. Then we explored and shopped for a good bit of time. I mean that’s the best thing to do in NYC.

IMG_0580.JPG

IMG_0579.JPG The night came quick and so did dinner. We stopped at a small pizza joint and it was yummy. The last thing we did was see the Rockefeller Christmas tree. What a sight. I honestly felt like I was in a dream. Taking everything in is so surreal. The tree is breathtaking.

New York City Day 1: Flying, City Streets, and Ramen

Today myself and a couple of my friends headed to New York City for a girls trip. We’ve been planning this trip for a while and are super excited for this week.

IMG_0190.JPG We arrived in NYC around 12:30 but didn’t get to where we are staying 3 hours later. We got a little lost to say the least. We were so tired we just chilled out and took our time getting ready for the night. We finally made it out and decided to do a bit of exploring in the snow. There is something about this city that’s just so invigorating. There’s to many things to take in its overwhelming but I love it all the same.

IMG_0251.JPG

IMG_0249.JPG After exploring a bit we were all starving. I knew coming here that I wanted to try Ramen because last time I was here I didn’t get to. We made our way over to Ippudo which was amazing! I absolutely love real ramen. We also ordered and appetizer of pork buns and they were really good. The food was amazing and the workers were so nice. At the end of our night the waiter brought out green tea for each of us and said it was on the house. Needless to say we were impressed!
