New York is Always a Good Idea!

new york is always a good idea
{blog in the picture is this one here}

I have possibly the most exciting news I've had in a long time, and as you might have guessed by the title it's to do with New York.

We're going!!

Paul and I have booked a trip to New York and it's taking all the strength I have in the world to stay calm and not squeal and shout about it all day long to everyone I see. I can't even begin to tell you how long I've wanted to go, but due to many other things in life it's never really been practical so it's been put off, and put off, until it simply became a dream that I thought it was never going to happen, but now it is and I can't quite believe it! There are no emoji's or text that allow me to explain to you just how happy I am right now, and as I write this I have a huge smile on my face!

As I've wanted to visit for so long now, I've put together quite a list of places I'd like to go, things I'd like to do and of course all the places I want to eat! Not to mention the shopping I'd like to do while we're there. While I obviously can't recommend these places seeing as we've never been I thought I'd share a few that I'm looking forward to trying.

Places to eat...

Dough - I have seen so many Instagrams, so many Twitter pictures and so many people online raving about this doughnut shop so I think its only right that we give it a go while we're there.

Magnolia Bakery - This is a must really, I don't think you can visit NYC and not try a cupcake.

Croque Monsieur - Considering how much Paul and I love a croque monsieur sandwich, and that I've been told this place serves some of the best, we should really give it a try.

The Meatball Shop - This is another place we've been recommended and I just love the idea of it -I hope we get to try it. Also I've been told the ice-cream sandwiches and incredible!

Things to see...

The Empire State Building - I can't wait to see this beautiful building and the view from the top I'm sure will be breathtaking.

The MET - I love going to museums and art galleries and I;m sure I'll love this one too.

The 9/11 Memorial - I'm sure this will be an incredibly emotional place to visit, but I think it will at the same time be lovely to see how they have remembered all of those people who lost their lives that day.

Times Square - I know some people say to stay away because it's far too "touristy", but I don't think I could visit and not experience Times Square.

Places to Shop...

Sephora - I've never been to a Sephora store, I know that we can now have it delivered to the UK but I've always wanted to wait until I was actually there to buy anything.

Bloomingdales - Just because.

Macy's - It's a good thing Paul likes to shop as much as I do because it might take a while to make our way around this store, am I right in thinking it's the worlds largest department store?

Of course there are are more places, shops and sights. I have a ridiculously long list on my phone that I add to almost daily -and it does include things like Chelsea Market and Central Park, but if I'd listed each one this post would never end! We don't go until April, but the way time flies by these days that will no doubt be here before we've even realised. I honestly can't explain to you my excitement -if you have any NYC recommendations for our first visit please let me know. While we are only there for 7 days I want to fit in as much as in humanly possibly -we can rest when we get home.
