New York Recap Day One

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! My sister and I took spring cleaning to a whole new level while we were both home for the weekend and completely cleaned out our rooms, which was long overdue.  Then we proceeded to overindulge in Easter desserts as a reward and came home and cleaned some more.  Not too glamorous but oh so necessary.

On to my New York Recap.

Day One in New York was amazing.  I think I smiled for 24 hours straight, especially when we got to Laduree.  I had to take step by step pictures before indulging in my first true macaron.  HOLY AMAZING-NESS. Macarons are so much more than the Americanized ones I was used to.  Can't believe I have missed out on these for so many years.




Then we went to the Tory Burch Madison Ave Flagship that I mentioned last week.  The unbelievable customer service continued to make my day even better.  After my first day gallivanting around town, Julia and I met Viv for drinks before a shopping trip to Jessie James.  If you live in New York and haven't been there yet, I highly recommend that you get there ASAP. 


We ate a fabulous dinner and talked and talked the night away.  I could not have asked for a better first day in the city with such great ladies.

More to come tomorrow including some of my favorite jewelry finds at Jessie James!

How were your weekends?

I haven't tried a macaroon in my life yet! Maybe I should stop by the boulangerie and buy some ;)

So fun!! Laduree sounds like an excellent way to start your trip! Can't wait to hear about the rest :)

It's hard to believe, but I've yet to visit Laduree myself! I'ts soooo far uptown, but I've been craving them like mad, so it's time to take the trip!

Come back soon!

Love Laduree - in Paris on the Champs Elysees they don't allow you to take ANY photos inside! Such a bummer, but I guess I understand.

Alexa said...

Oh my goodness I'm so jealous that you were there...saw those photos of you on Viv's blog. So cool!

Viviana said...

You need to come back. The city and I miss you dearly!

I love La Duree! I've never been to the location in NYC but I've been to the one in Paris when I was studying abroad there.
