A Girl’s Day

April 3, 2010

Shopping, sunshine + a ladies lunch! What more could I ask for?

You never know what you’re going to see in NYC! LOL bears!!!

I spent the morning shopping. I wanted to bring home something as a souvenir! I went to H&M and tried on a few items.

Almost bought this puffed sleeve purple shirt, but I have this complex where I won’t both waiting at the register and carrying around a bag for just one item if it’s just something small, so I ended up leaving it behind.

Also tried on these items that did not end up coming with me either!

Some holy jeans!

I went in a few more stores by knew I had a final destination:

DROOL over all of the beautiful items!!! Bowls, candles, DRESSES!

I tried on a lot of definite no’s:

But I found my one souvenir! This cute summer sundress on sale for $69. Dress it up or dress it down with different footware!

I ran out of time (and that was enough money spent!) so I walked another mile over to the Chelsea Market to meet my blog friends!

Lindsay, Amelia, Sarah, Jen, Jen’s roommate (please forgive me for not catching your name!!), and Ashley

Chelsea Market was A-mazing. Sooo many cool places to eat!!! So as to avoid 20 minutes of exploring and deciding when I was short on time, I decided to just go with One Lucky Duck since I was in the mood for a big salad.

They had all of their best already made and ready to go:

I chose the s+m again – it’s such a good one and comes with Quackers!!

I also spontaneously stopped into Lucy’s Whey Cheese Shop and came out with a tiny slice to share with the group –

TONS of flavor in this aged beauty!

I assembled my salad, which came with hemp seeds, a pumpkin seed sesame dressing and dulce ( think that’s what it’s called – it’s a seaweed!). I added a 1 ounce looking piece of cheese.

IMG_9614 (640x427)

Cheddar Quackers!!!!!!!! I barely made a dent in these because my salad was so big

IMG_9611 (640x427) 

I also got to try a piece of Amy’s Bread – totalllllllly good! And you know I’m picky about my breads!! It was so sweet and tasted like a doughnut but was also nutty and seeded and likely a large percentage whole wheat if not 100%. I wanted to get some to bring home but I ran out of time.

The lunch was great but SOOOO salty!!! I’m dying of thirst now! I decided against a veggie juice at OLD because they were $10 a piece and I’ve spend so much $$ on juice lately!

I really wish I had had time to get Pinkberry or a cupcake or something really fun but time was of the essence and I had to quickly head back to the hotel for my luggage and then straight to LGA for my flight this afternoon.

NEW YORK – I WILL BE BACK!

You didn’t pick up chocolate at Jacques Torres right there near One Lucky Duck? My favorite chocolate in the city (and some of the best cookies, too!)

Glad you had such a great time!! Safe travels!

I always call my roomies polar bears because they set the A/C at 50 degrees…even in the winter! There is an anthro 2 blocks from my home (condo) and I go in to drool at the kitchen stuff all the time. I want an apron so badly :)

Did lucky duck have raw cheese? If so, you should have tried that! It’s my new raw addiction–so flavorful!

Reply

27 Kath April 3, 2010 at 9:01 pm

I think so!? I didn’t get any just because my salad had a lot already.

28 Emily Eats and Exercises April 3, 2010 at 8:55 pm

Very cute dress. And reasonably priced for Anthropologie. I’ll have to find Lucky Duck when I go to NY next.
I agree with you on the calorie on menus – I understand why some people are against it, but it would definitely help me stay mindful in a positive way.

Kath I had such a wonderful time meeting you today and enjoying Chelsea Market and the other readers/bloggers. Hopefully you can tell from today’s post that I took everyone’s comments to heart. I even enjoyed some Pinkberry for you afterwards. :) I’m glad you two enjoyed a great date night as Bo and I did the same. Also, Bo said that if Matt is coming up with you later this summer you all are definitely invited to our home for dinner! He’d love to host the other bears :)

Hey Ash Bear!!!

Would love to see you this summer and meet Bo!

Wish I could have joined you for Pinkberry!!

I’m so sad I couldn’t be there! But Lcuky Duck has been on my list for awhile – and I love that you treated yourself to some good quality cheese. I miss the cheese I had in Paris two weeks ago!!
