To begin our week in Manhattan - I finally had the opportunity to show Alex Central Park. As you know, I've been to New York many times, so I know some photogenic areas ;) such as the one above. Quick story - as we were walking around we stopped to take this photo when a middle aged man with a camera around his neck approached us. He whispered "would you mind walking a couple feet away" and smiled. We looked to the left and saw a couple walking toward us. Without hesitation I knew exactly what was happening.. a proposal! Alex and I walked a good distance away and sat on a rock where we watched the entire thing. The photographer was very sly and was able to catch the entire thing on camera. Literally picture perfect. He gave us a quick smile and a wave as we got up to leave. A nice way to begin our week in the city at 7am.
Little Collins!! Can I just say.. this place is to die for. A little whole in the wall caffe that serves Australian/american treats. They made me an amazing cappuccino. I'm sorry to say but I didn't get a photo of our brunch! I had a PB&J and Alex had this savory salmon sandwhich. I have a sweet tooth for sure. Do not be fooled, the PB&J was incredible. Housemade penut butter & jam, atop a slice of their housemade banana bread, and coconut flakes sprinkles on top. It was so yummy. A must try if you're in the city.
Wandering around central park and happened to meet a famous horse. This guy was in a new film coming up staring Kirsten Stuart. The owner showed us photos and it was a total catch. The horse was sweet too ;) (Scar & Hat are both form Anthropologie // Gloves from Lulu Lemon)
This was at a bazaar restaurant -Wohop in China Town. It's so vibrant and such a trip! They have the fastest service, the best Chinese food, and decently priced. Not to mention the fact that you can walk in at 3am and the place is packed. I've been a few times before, recommended by the executive chef at Bottega Restaurant in Napa.
The Flat Iron Building is so cool and much more detailed in person. If you're in the city you have to check it out, and then head to Eataly - which is right next door. The market has the best food selection, and their hot chocolate is literally melted chocolate with whipped cream made in house!
The Sugar Factory!! Best dessert I've ever had..
For those of you who know me personally or have followed my page for a while, you know how much of Audrey Hepburn has inspired me to be the best version of myself. One of my favorite movies is Breakfast at Tiffany's - so this is me, filled with happiness, walking up Holly Golightly's front steps. On January 1st the streets of Manhattan were pretty desolate and it was so cold! (28 degrees)..but honestly what better way to ring in the new.
