NYC - My Final Day

Tuesday, 28 October 2014

I was getting the redeye flight home so I had until 6pm on my final day to spend in the city.

Unfortunately when I looked outside it was raining... so I went down to breakfast and googled things to do in NYC when it rains.

Most of the suggestions were art galleries...now I know its awful that I didn't go to MOMA blablabla but I don't really like art galleries (sorrysorry).

One other suggestion was shopping...so I did that instead.

Luckily I had packed an umbrella so I walked down through Washington Square Park towards Soho.

The first place I came upon was an indoor market on Bleeker Street..perfect!
I spent some time in here looking at all the random trinkets. It felt a bit like Portabello and there were some really cool little bits of jewellery.

Also inside was a nail art place (upstairs). They did amazing designs and American Flags and things. If I had known the day before I definitely would have got my nails done there!
They were called Akiko Nails and did things like this!
Very cool in my opinion.
Here is their website

I wandered back out into the rain and towards Broadway to shop. My plan was to go to Old Navy and get a cool cheap wrap around scarf as I don't have one at home. I did see a couple I liked but nothing that I loved so I gave up and moved on in my search for a phone case.

One of the things I really wanted when I went to NYC was a phone case for my new phone...I couldn't find one I liked anywhereeee. 

I looked in Bloomingdales, Victoria Secret, Old Navy, the HBO shop but couldn't find one so I stopped into MAC to avoid the rain.

More makeup - what can I say I have a problem!
I went in with the intention of getting the MAC Mineralise Skin Finish in Soft and Gentle, but came out with a different colour one, and a nailpolish, and a contour brush.

OOPS.

I got the MAC Mineralise Skin Finish in Global Glow, which is apparently better for my skin tone:
Pwwwweeeeetyyy


A nail polish in the colour Formidable

And a MAC contour brush

I have wanted the NARS contour brush for ages but can't get it anywhereee so I was pleased to find something similar.

I also popped into Sephora and picked up some presents for my friends...

More facemasks! I had used one of mine the day before and was so impressed although I did look absolutely mental with a kind of wet paper mask on my face!
Luckily no one knocked on my door at that point!


The next stop was lunch.
I knew the place I wanted to try and I knew it was naughty enough to go out with a bang on my last day!

Oh HELLO!

I love peanut butter and I knew that I wanted to try The Elvis..

A grilled Maple Peanut Butter sandwich, with banana, crispy bacon and honey.

These pictures do not do it justice!

I could only finish half though! I don't know anyone who could have done the whole thing!

So so yummy. If you like peanut butter...go here it is on 240 Sullivan Street.
The do amazing looking milkshakes too but I (of course) had a cherry diet coke. mmmm.

Next I headed to the big CVS Pharmacy on E Huston Street to pick up some treats for the office.
Whenever anyone in the office goes away they always get treats and whenever anyone gets treats from America it is always the best so I didn't want to disappoint.

And I don't think I did with these bad boys!
Who thinks up these genius ideas! 

I think I prefer the Reeses Peanut Butter Oreos but these are still really good.
I also got mini butterfingers which I just love. It is kind of like a crunchie but peanut butter flavoured.

I then mooched about a bit and headed off for coffee.
I love Dunkin Donuts iced coffee it is the best I've ever had but this day was miserable so I tried a hot one.
Could have been stronger...could have been better.

(on a separate note - heyyyy cheekbones)

I will stick with the iced ones in future and p.s. NEVER eat a doughnut from there they are gross!

Next I killed some time by getting a pedicure. The place I went to was so cheap and I got 15 minute foot massage and 15 minute back massage...all for $25 I think. It was called Stellar Nail Spa Inc and was on 8th Street between 5th and 6th Avenue. So cheap. A manicure was $8! I had paid $20 the day before (including tip). This place was a much better deal and my pedicure is still intact two and a half weeks later!

It was then time to head back to the hotel sit with a pot of tea and try and catch up with the X Factor as and when it was uploaded onto YouTube. 
I wanted to see Only The Young perform with my girllll Parisa but it didn't upload fast enough so I had to head off to the airport

Bye Bye NYC
