New York, baby

This is my last day in Edinburgh for just over a week. Tomorrow morning, I fly to New York with two of my closest friends to celebrate turning 30. We’ve been planning this holiday for years and it’s hard to believe it’s finally here.

Last night was spent packing my case with a Martini in hand while Sex and the City was on in the background. Today, I’ve been obsessively flicking through guide books and making lists of things to see, places to eat and where to shop, over gin and red wine with my husband.

And so it’s farewell from me for a little while. But before I go, if you have been to NYC and have any recommendations for me, please send them this way. Have a great couple of weeks everybody!

    Aww, I wish you were coming SF so we could grab lunch or something :) You guys will have a phenomenal time! It’s been a while since I’ve been to NYC, but you have to go check out some museums and maybe a Broadway show. Since you’re a foodie, the top of my list the next time I go is Momofuku Noodle Bar. The owner and head chef David Chang is my hero!

      I’ll definitely check out Momofuku, it looks awesome, thanks Cat! I’m hoping to hit SF next year so it would be lovely to grab some lunch when I’m over there. X
