New York, my favourite city in the world! The Empire State Building, Central Park, Broadway, Soho. Like Alicia Keys sang in ‘Empire State of Mind: ‘these Streets will make you feel brand new..’. No matter how tired you are, The City will always give you energy! Oddly enough I don’t really do a lot of shopping when I’m here.  I’d rather walk around town than hang out in a mall. But there’s one shop I always need to visit… A few of my fave New York hot spots. Let’s go!
IMG_0277‘Just give me the cupcakes and nobody gets hurt!’ First I need to get me some cupcakes at The Magnolia Bakery at Bleecker street.
Still popular to this day because of Sex and the City. 401 Bleecker Street.
IMG_0261 Happiness in a box!
IMG_0308Ok…I need to wash the guilt away from eating the cupcakes. Getting an organic juice at Whole Foods.
IMG_0274Ladies…I know what Fashion heaven looks like. Just like the store  ‘A Second Chance Resale’ ! Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to take pictures inside the store but picture this: a store full of vintage Chanel, Hermés and YSL. Bags, clothing, shoes and jewelry…you name it, they’ve got it! Locations: 1109 Lexington Avenue,Upper East Side  and 155 Prince Street, SoHo. Heaven!
IMG_0303Grab a Chai Latte and walk The High Line. Love it! The High Line is a city park built on the elevated part of an old railroad trail. Runs trough the Meatpacking district and Chelsea.
IMG_0305This never gets old. Take the subway to Brooklyn and walk back to Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge. Very ‘Miranda and Steve’.
IMG_0294SoHo, I love this part of the City. SoHo stands for ‘South of Houston’ (street). I love the beautiful cobblestone streets and there are many art galleries, little shops and lofts in this neighbourhood.
IMG_0309Just a message on the street. ‘Love is telepathic’.
IMG_0266Till soon, NY!
love, Mishanou
