NYC Trip: So much to do, so little time

NYC

New York has had a special place in my heart from the moment I started performing in musicals in 5th grade. At the time when my dream was to be a Broadway star, I knew New York was the city I needed to be in. Fast forward 14 years later and while I still have no shame in bringing out my inner thespian, I developed new interests: fashion, beauty, fitness, a lovely cocktail and public relations. Even today, I still have that same flame in my heart for New York. And whenever I have the chance to go, you can guarantee I am there.

I am going to NYC this week to meet my best friend Tina for a girls weekend and boy do we have some fun things planned. Tina and I are both coffee addicts, so you might see one or two (or three or four..) insta posts in a coffee shop. No shame in our coffee game. Along with bougie dinners, shopping, and really just adventuring and seeing what mischief we find ourselves in. We are going to have so many memories!

I wanted to share a few places cafes, coffee shops and dessert spots where we will for sure be going , and I can’t wait to write future posts reminiscing on my trip!  If you have any Insta-worthy NYC recommendations, please please please share! I am so excited to go on a little getaway! Thanks for joining me on my adventures <3.
