Moto New York

cowlneck  cowlneck

For those in the States, I hope you all had a fab Thanksgiving holiday! For me, I took a short trip to NYC. Other than visiting fam, my goal while there was to try to eat all the carbs (I came pretty close).

One cool thing about not living in the City anymore is that when I go back to visit, I have zero qualms about doing all the touristy things. I used to pretty much steer clear of anywhere in Manhattan above 34th Street, but now, I am all about Midtown. Part of the fun of being in the City is seeing all the wonder in the eyes of people who are just visiting.

 Below is a medley of pics I took with my phone, some of which you may have already seen on my Instagram. As for today, it's back to the grind!

It was a bit cold on my first day in the City. / Shopping and skating at the Winter Village in Bryant Park. / The diversity of eats available is awesome - some Azerbaijani for this evening.

Holiday windows from Bergdorf's - the ultimate blinged out Rockstuds. / Cartier is all dressed up.

Love Asian bakery breads! / FAO Schwarz - can't visit NYC during the holidays without coming here. / My fave part of the store is the Build-Your-Own-Muppet section.

One of Tiffany's windows. / Love seeing the city all dressed up for the holidays. / Some macarons and "serious" reading on the evening before Thanksgiving.

Grand Central Station on Thanksgiving eve - packed! / The New York Public Library is dolled up for the holidays. / The epic hugeness that is my brother-in-law's wallet.

 Loving (albeit it super-posed) pic of my nephew and I finishing up the tree trimming - cue the warm and fuzzies! / Home-made food is the best - beef noodle soup with wontons and fish cake. / Love ya, NYC!

22 23 24
My last bit of food in NYC - the black & white cookie, where "two races of flavor live side-by-side." / Finally at home, robed up, snacked out, and prepped to do some serious holiday shopping.

  2. So near and yet so far! Had the opportunity to chaperone trips to NYC when I did my Yale stint this summer but opted for D.C. instead. Some day, Lisa. Some day...

    In the meantime, thanks for sharing your lovely memories and welcome home! :D

    1. Yeah, Times Square is really really touristy, and I never go into any of the stores there, but my BF and I went during the evening last year and it was kind of cool - the vibe of the people!

  13. "Look to the cookie!" When the guy stomps Elaine's foot with his cane & says "Sorry" - that's an inside joke with one of my best friends. So that scene holds a special place in my heart :-) Love it!

    Glad you had a good time in NYC. I've never been but the pictures I see always look fab.

    Loving your whole outfit here. Those shoes are some of my fave!

    1. Not this time, but I used to hang around Union Square and the Village/Soho all the time. Bryant Park may have US beat though with the skating rink!

    My favorite is you and your nephew with the Christmas tree. Planned or not, the beautiful lights shining on your smiling faces is beautiful.
