The New York Diaries #5

My fifth day in NYC was very exciting as I spent it around Soho and The Village exploring really cool shops and sights, including buildings that were used as exterior shots for my all time favourite TV Show, Friends. Another highlight was the appointment at Bite Beauty Lab, where I got to make my personalised lipstick – really cool, and very recommended if you like makeup! O meu quinto dia em Nova Iorque foi excelente – passei o dia a passear pelo Soho e pela Village, a explorar lojas muito giras e a ver sítios muito giros, incluíndo os prédios…

The New York Diares #4

My fourth day in NYC was lovely and sunny, and so I walked to the Highline, and walked through it down to Chelsea and the Meatpacking District. The walk was great and the Highline is such an unusual, cool space! I then went to Chelsea Market, explored for a bit and had a delicious taco for lunch – the market is absolutely incredible, well worth a visit.  It was then time to head downtown to visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum – like a good part of the world I remember that day all too vividly and wanted to pay…

My third day in NYC coincided with International Women’s Day 2016 – and I thought that going to the UN Headquarters would be a cool way to celebrate it, especially as this very cool moment was happening during my tour of the building! I then headed to Madison Square Park for lunch at the outdoor Shake Shack – it was a lovely sunny day and eating outside with a view of the Flatiron building on one side, and the Empire State Building on the other was incredible! At the end of the day I head up to Top of the Rock…

My second day in New York was dedicated to the museums within the ‘Museum Mile’ on Fifth Avenue. But before I started exploring, I headed to UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, a very cool food market just behind Grand Central Station, to try out the incredible (and HUGE) donuts from Dough. Here are the photos from that day! O meu segundo dia em Nova Iorque foi dedicado aos museus da ‘Museum Mile’ na Quinta Avenida. Mas antes de começar a explorar, visitei o UrbanSpace Vanderbilt, um mercado de comida muito giro por trás da Grand Central Station, para experimentar os fantásticos (e ENORMES)…

The New York Diaries #1

As you will probably know if you read my posts last week, I have recently gone to New York – something I had been dreaming about for years – and it was an incredible trip! The main source of inspiration for my trip itinerary was this post from Kate LaVie – it was super useful to see all of Kate’s recommendations by area and by activity, and I really enjoyed the places she mentioned, such as the view from the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir in Central Park and Egg Shop for breakfast (among others!). If you’re planning a trip there,…
