Spring Break in the Big City

Welcome Back

How was your spring break? We both had a very busy one. We went home to see our families for a few days, then each headed to New York City to enjoy our time off. Since we just got back to school and are working on a bigger St. Patrick’s Day themed post for next week, we thought today we would share some highlights from our spring break.

Over spring break, I went to Connecticut/New York City with close friends. We all stayed at our good friend Ashley’s house in West Port. Below are pictures of some of the places we went to in the city. Pictures don’t do the places or the experiences justice but I hope you enjoy them.

 In this photo is the renowned Times Square where every tourist must go. One of my friends  kept saying she didn’t believe she was in New York until she saw Times Square.

One of my favorite places that we went to was Central Park. I love that it gives you a break from the chaos that is New York City by just walking a few blocks. Central park also gives great views of the skyline, like in this photo. With the elevated rocks, one truly gets a sense of being on top of the world.

Another place we went to was the New York Public Library. In all honesty, I had no idea what the building was but I really appreciated the architecture so I thought, Why not go in? It’s free, and when something is free in New York, you don’t pass it up. After going in this library, I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. I definitely recommend taking a few minutes to pop in and check it out.

I went to the Big Apple to visit my dear friend Eva, a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology, for the weekend. I stayed with her in her dorm, which is located right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Very exciting. How fabulous is she in this photo booth strip we got in the gorgeous NYC Urban Outfitters?

One of my favorite places we ate at was Doughnut Plant. The inside was a donut dream. The tiles on the walls were made into colorful donuts, the chairs were shaped like donuts, the tables looked like donuts, and this wall (below) really took the cake (lol, cake donuts). They were like a family of donut pillows- so colorful and adorable we almost passed out. But not before devouring our triple chocolate and fresh blackberry donuts (which I’m still dreaming about). Go to the Doughnut Plant!!!

Saturday was sunny and beautiful and filled with shopping. We went to SoHo, and you definitely haven’t shopped until you have been up and down these endless sidewalks of stores. Happy Socks was sweet – check it out for some funky and high quality socks.

Hope your break was just as much fun. Thanks  for reading!

With Love and Frill,
