306. NYC Part 1 | New Year's in New York

Raines Law Room New Year's 2013
I'm back from NYC (unfortunately)! I don't know why I said I'd be "updating frequently" when I was there..sorry for being so MIA. I had such an amazing time, and loved it a lot more than I thought I would so I literally had no time to blog. I am already planning my next trip back there (the couple hours I had waiting for my flight home was spent researching flights for next month). I've been to NYC a few times before but this was the first time I actually enjoyed it (thank you to my personal tour guide). But as expected, I did not have nearly enough time there to do everything I wanted..now I'm kind of torn between a trip back there next or to Europe again like I originally wanted this year. Think I might end up doing both and sacrificing those Louboutins.....

Anyway I hope you all had a wonderful New Year's. I have hundreds of photos so here is the first batch - just a random mix of the trip from beginning to end. I will post the rest very soon plus interesting stories..so keep checking back!!

  3. Hey babes welcome back! I know the feeling of wanting to go back! I also watched the Phantom of the Opera and went to the Russian Tea room. Did you like it? xoxo ES

  4. wow! looking forward to seeing the rest! it was exactly a year ago today when I sat on an airplane from Toronto to NY, so I'm being kind of nostalgic. really fell in love with the city and cannot wait to go back! I've heard about that black water but have never seen it anywhere - how does it taste? does it have some sort of weird taste or is it just as plain water only black?

    1. it tastes like normal water actually! at first I was a bit weirded out by the colour but I had to get some photos of it lol

  5. fantastic pictures. i love jackson pollock.

  8. Looks so much fun Tiffany. I would definitely like to visit MOMA , The Natural History Museum and The Standard Hotel including the Bar. NYC is always fun to visit. Thanks for sharing.

  9. Wow looks like a fantastic trip so far! OMG! Natural history! I love those museums after going to the one in HK, I was blown away and want to visit lots of them now, I didn't get to visit anything similar in Paris though, too busy with the Lourve lol I really enjoy reading your posts because even if I did go to NYC I would be going to totally different places so when I read your blog it's almost like a whole new place! I noticed this after reading your Paris posts =) I think it's great that the city puts in so much effort to add the Christmas decorations!

    Did the dark mineral water taste like...water? Hahahaha I had to ask =P Oh and did you visit the Guggenheim on your trip?

    1. I didn't know HK had one..
      lol yea I love when we post about the same places! when I read your posts it makes me feel like I experienced the same places as well
      yea it tasted like normal water. & no..ran out of time (as usual) :(

    2. Aww that's alright, it's what the trip next month is for right? kekeke Yeah they have a similar museum in hk but it's not an official "natural museum" but pretty similar, in fact I didn't even wanna go in that time but decided to because they had a exhibition of ancient scholars etc. LOL and it was cheap as heck to get in =P It also looks really boring outside but once you're inside it's like being transported, the bf loves these things now hahaha I imagined the mineral water to have a salty taste hahaha =P

  10. STUNNING pics, I love them. and I'm so jealous that u went to see the Phantom. I'm so booking tickets for the show in London <3 cannot wait.

    1. no I haven't..I really wish I had though!! I definitely will next time. Also wanna check out the Tate Modern
