New York City

Travel

well, it has been just over a month since bella and i returned from our wintery new york vacay. and i realised, i haven’t really said one thing about it. so here it is, my report on the world’s greatest city…

that was certainly my perception before arriving. if you’ve read my previous posts, you may recall me confessing my fear of new york not living up to my carrie bradshaw/woody allen/breakfast at tiffany’s type expectations. and honestly, the holiday was no comparison to these movie depictions. but. it was an absolutely amazing time.

we arrived early in the morning, and were greeted by JFK. not the most stunning of airports, but considerably bigger and more populated than perth! honestly that day was 1 degree celsius and we thought we had hit the antarctic. we were ignorant to the fact we were about the enter what we later knew as, the polar vortex, and 1 degree would be like a summer’s day. our coldest experience was walking to the new york public library in -12 with stupid ice cold winds. we were so cold. like freezing. like so cold we walked past grand central station and didn’t even realise… don’t judge. we were stressed. to add to our cold, i thought it would be a highly intelligent idea to not bring any flat boots with me. so, i wore my wang boots. like my brand new alexander wang boots through the dirty snow. not my best idea, but at least i looked good freezing my everything off.

but lord knows, even in freezing climates, we didn’t let anything stop us from shopping. i enjoyed the touristy things, but honestly, nothing compared to the shopping and great food that we experienced. some would say 3 and a half weeks of shopping and eating was the perfect new york experience. two wog girls unleashed in the city, it was like restaurant heaven! there are honestly a million stories to tell, i actually have no idea how to recount such an experience. but here are a few little pics i took on the one day my slr and i left the house together plus some iphone picos. i’ll slowly share my purchases with you as we move forward and in to slightly warmer weather! don’t worry, there won’t be anything i don’t show!

so, in summary, new york was bloody great. i can tell because i keep dreaming about it…

merry boxing day everyone.

i hope you’re reading this as your curled in to a ball from your christmas induced food coma! i have meant to be speedy this morning but i think the turkey and the ham are weighing me down. this is my last post from australia for a while. woohoo. today’s the day. bella and i are leaving on a jet plane to be united with our love, new york! i will be posting plenty from there while we are away. holidays seems to be the best time to blog because you have so much time do it!!

in other topics such as the clothing appearing here, this t-shirt was free. some of you may have recognised it straight away. now, i was really battling with myself whether or not i should wear it. you see, the other day i saw a girl wearing it, and i’m going to be honest, i immediately thought ‘lol, that shirt is form a magazine.’ so when i put it on, i thought the same thing about myself! my second thought was though, ‘this shirt looks totally rad with this outfit. who cares if it was free!’ and so here we are, repping the free mag t-shirt. at least people know i’m in to fashion magazines. that makes me slight cooler, right? so i say, if you like it – wear it!

see you in new york soon!

the madness

Life and Love,  Outfits,  Summer

Mad for two reasons. 1. I’m going mad because I can’t get the darn video to load on here. grrrr. and 2. I’ve been madly Christmas shopping. I forget how time consuming it is, unless you’re certain I’d average about 1 hour per present. minimum. So, here’s an outfit from yesterday. I spent more than 3 hours in the Claremont Quarter park. I always said to myself how reasonable 3 hours free parking was, because who would possibly be shopping in Claremont for that long. But I disproved myself, and to discover once you breach that limit it can get rather costly. mm….
