New York, New York

As you may have read, when it comes to university, I like to procrastinate. Almost where it should be illegal to still receive the marks that I do. Lately, my favourite ‘procractivity’ has been reminiscing on my recent (sob, it feels like years ago) trip to New York City for my 21st birthday. After New York, I flew to Cailfornia to see my family based there, making my trip almost 2 months in length.

I’ve only just got the photos from my camera transferred onto CD’s due to a rogue USB cord, and I think it took me this long to do so because I couldn’t bring myself to look at another 300 photos of happier times. Think sunshine, heat, bagels, ice cream sandwiches, shopping, chillen’ at Jay-Z and Beyonce’s penthouse and just general freedom. Way better than real life.

So, need something to while away the minutes to? Pretend you stowed in my luggage, get inspiration for your upcoming trip or reminisce on your own with these pretty pictures. Basically just let me indulge in my own time wasting. Please?

Madison Square Park

Cosmopolitans... of course.

    Yes. It is a cool place to be. And I love NYC. Mr Woog and I stayed at the Waldorf where he bought me an antique diamond ring, and we both got gently butt-fucked on the price and the shabby rooms there.

    But we have fond fond memories of NYC, but if you go, Stay at The Alex in Midtown and shop around for your jewels. xoxox

    Love the post Holly! I’ve been the US a few times but New York has never made it into one of them even though I’ve always wanted to go. Now you make me want to go more!
