My trip to New York City was so much fun. The scale and speed of the city never ceases to amaze and thrill me. I know for a fact that I want to live there when I grow up. I am a true city girl at heart. Everything about the ambition, the stark contrast of glitz and grunge, I love it.
My trip was very relaxed. I didn't do much besides watch Transformers One and Two in my aunt's apartment before passing out on her couch. I also went shopping in H&M to stock up on their cheap stuff and drooled over the windows on 5th Avenue. Is anyone as obsessed with Stella McCartney as I am?
I'm very happy to say that ED really didn't get to come on this trip. I was able to push aside alot of the thoughts and urges that I had, and just enjoy myself. I was literally in awe that I have reached a point where I can eat in a restaurant. At dinner we had planned to go to the 5 Napkin Burger but when we arrived we were told that there was an hour and a half wait! Instead of freaking out, I was able to calmly pick another place to eat and choose something on the menu that I actually wanted to eat. We went to Vynl and I had a grilled veggie wrap with goat cheese in it and on the side I had grilled asparagus. So yum(:
On Sunday morning, we went out to breakfast, where I had some disappointing watery oats, and were resolutely on our way out of the city.. but of course my mom and I HAD to make a quick stop at the Chelsea Market.
Here is my adventure in Chelsea Market through pictures, if you are ever in the city you MUST stop here:
|Fat Witch Bakery|
|We bought three loaves of bread and they were the best that I've ever tasted.|
|I had this scone and it was so good!|
|Fish market- everything was so fresh. It almost made me regret giving up fish. The sushi looked delicious.|
|One Lucky Duck|
|They make raw, vegan, organic, DELICIOUS products.|
Unfortunatley it's very very expensive.
|The Nut Box|
|the cookie that I got. See the stratification of chocolate?|
It's a hard-core chocolate chip cookie.
|My parents went to The Modern for dinner and apparently it was amazing.|
They brought me a nougat and raspberry jelly candy.
