We are off to NYC! I have spent a total of 2 days in New York [first trip was in October of last year] so I cannot wait to take it all in for 4 full days!  I will try to get some photos on the blog on Friday if I have some time. In the meantime, follow me & Alaina on Twitter for updates!
Day 1 in New York City with my girl Alaina. We got settled in and took the subway to ABC Carpet and Home. [It was my first time on a subway in NYC.] We enjoyed a delicious lunch at ABC Kitchen and walked around the showroom, fascinated by the gorgeous decor.
After getting caught in some crazy rain [my Tory Burch Eddie flats were SOAKED!] I picked up some green hunter wellies. I also bought this hot pink cuff and this sparkly iPhone case at J. Crew. Look at me with all this color. We ended our day with an event sponsored by Elle Decor followed by dinner with Julia of The Urban Slant at Park Avenue Bistro. She’s a doll. Loved meeting her.

Alaina shared some photos on her blog, and you can follow us on twitter for updates.

Excited to work with a few girls from the New York Design Center today! Happy Friday!
PS. Our new iPhone cases have left us covered in glitter.

Alaina and I took 500+ photos on our iPhones and 600+ with my 7D, so I hope you are prepared for a few NYC posts this week. Here are some favorites off my camera. Let’s start with ABC Carpet and Home / our happy place. If you love design + decor, you need to add this to your list of places to go in NYC.

Up next…Friday night in NYC! The talented Alaina captured some shots of yours truly! I finally have some real photographs of myself taken with something other than an iPhone. Stay tuned!

And she thought I didn’t need to bring two coats. Can you imagine that orange coat in every single photo? I miss running around the city with Alaina and hope that we can go back again very soon! And to Paris + London by Sept 2012 when I turn 30. Yes. I’ll be 30! I know. I don’t look a day over 24. Smile and nod. Or continue with your laughter. I can’t see you.

PS – Refinery29 shared my cheesecake recipe yesterday! That’s my 2nd food feature on Refinery29. A sign that I should consider becoming a pastry chef? Obviously.
