27 Mar In New York, New York
It takes a certain kind of person to enjoy living in New York, and especially New York City. You have to be patient with large amounts of people and able to function in a fast paced environment. I love visiting the city because of the experience. It’s always nice to experience a different life style and people watch in a place like that. I honestly really enjoy venturing around the city because I feel like every time I go, I discover something new. This time around I got to go with some of my favorite people- my mom, my little sister, and a family friend who is like an Aunt to me. Who doesn’t like a weekend girls trip getaway to NYC?!
Some of the highlights of my trip included good food, historical landmarks, shopping (of course), and adventuring.
Erika- (my baby sis) is a big foodie, so it’s always fun trying new food places with her. We stayed at the La Quinta Inn on Korea Way, so the entire strip was full of Korean culture. We got dinner (and lunch the next day because it was that delicious) at Shanghai Mong. The staff was so friendly and helpful with reading the menu and answering any questions we had. We ended up loading up on Pho, veggie spring rolls, and veggie dumplings. I would highly recommend this place if you’re looking to try something new! Right before we left, we decided to grab some milk tea from Kung Fu Tea, which I probably inhaled in a matter of 5 minutes. I also enjoyed shopping in the Korean beauty shops. Their packaging is to die for! I definitely grabbed a bunny lipgloss or two…
I finally got the chance to check out the 9/11 memorial and it is 100% worth the money to see. For someone who was very young when the horrific incident happened, it was an extremely educational exhibit. The two waterfalls that are built in remembrance are absolutely breathtaking and saddening at the same time. *If you present your student I.D. you can get a pretty nice discount on tickets to the museum!!*
Shopping of course is always fun for me. I love hitting up Mango, Zara, and Top Shop because I usually only get to shop those places online because we don’t have any here in Columbus. If you followed me along on my Instagram story, you already know I did some damage.. HAHA stay tuned because I’ll be styling those pieces on my Instagram and future blog posts. If you guys have any recommendations for when I go back, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I would love to try even more things on my next trip.
