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