Fashion & Travel


If you follow me on social media, you’d know I just came back from an epic trip to New York City. One of my best friends Bianca and I found a killer deal for our flight and hotel, so we couldn’t pass up this opportunity.

Luckily, we visited NYC last year around the same time and did all the touristy stuff, so this time was pure fun. We landed Friday morning around 11 a.m. and headed to our hotel for early check in. We stayed in the heart of Chelsea, our favorite neighborhood in the city. It was extremely convenient for catching local trains, going out at night, and great food.

On our first day, we walked down the High Line- something I definitely suggest doing if you’ve never done, had lunch at the Chelsea Market, and went to happy hour at 230 Fifth Rooftop bar.

After a day of exploring (exploring= eating and drinking), we made it over to Artichoke Pizza and had a famous slice. Check out my post here to read about their Miami location. Once we were fed, showered, and ready to go (again), we spent the night at one of our favorite bars, Brass Monkey. Make sure you check this spot out- it never disappoints!

We woke up Saturday and headed over to have brunch at one of my new favorite places, Hotel Chantelle. Stay tuned for a post dedicated to them- extremely deserved!

After brunch, we visited the One World Trade Center, and spent the day shopping in SoHo.


That night we had dinner at Vandal. This place is also getting it’s own post, because it was amazing all around- food, ambiance, & service!



We hit the town that night and went clubbing next door in Vandal’s lounge, and then met up with a friend at Catch NYC.

Sunday was probably one of the most FUN days of my life.

I’m not exaggerating. Somehow, Bianca and I were still alive and thriving, and managed to make it to bottomless brunch at The Crooked Knife. After a much needed filling meal (and mimosas), we headed over to Bounce Sporting Club to continue our Sunday Funday. This has been the best Sunday Funday of my entire life. If you’re ever in the city, I highly suggest coming here. Get there early, though, because they will stop letting people in after a certain time.

Excuse the shitty picture, this was taken after six hours of being there… lol

We somehow managed to end up partying with a Jets player and his model girlfriend, which was lit. Shoutout to Buster Skrine for all the shots. All. The. Shots.


Monday was our last day, so we recovered as much as possible and hung around Soho for a little and visited Times Square. Although touristy, it’s a must-see every time I’m in New York City. All the people and lights make me fall in love all over again every time I visit.


Shoutout to these strangers who left a selfie on my phone when I asked them to take a picture of me and Bianca. LOL.

Of course, I fell in love with the city all over again

& I can’t wait to go back. There’s always something new to see in NYC and I can’t wait to continue exploring with my friends. The memories made on this trip will last a lifetime, and I’m so happy I was able to experience this. We met so many cool people from all over the world, and I got to do all this with one of my best friends.

Make sure you’re following me on Instagram so you can see all my stories and posts as I post them! I also highlight a lot of food, travel, and my OOTDs, so you can always go back and check those posts out.

NYC, I love you, and I promise I’ll be back soon.
