We managed to jam pack a lot of activities into our 48 hour whirlwind trip to New York. There’s no denying the buzz that hums through the city and I’m convinced that it’s what kept us on our feet for hours on end.

We stayed at my cousins apartment in the East Village. Having someone to show us around proved to be far more time effective than times past when we’ve navigated the city ourselves. Not having planned anything in particular before leaving, we were left with ample time to meander the city at will. We brunched at the Soho House*, perused the High Line, frequented sample sales (hello $198 sequined top for $35) and acted the tourist at Magnolia Bakery. Between Italian tapas in Brooklyn, Sundays strolling through Central Park and hours in the presence of Monets and Van Goghs at the Met I’m left inspired and deeply moved by a city so unbelievably fantastic. It really is unlike no other.

*for the Sex and the City fans, you may recall the episode in which Samantha tries to sneak in to the Soho House after waiting far too long for her own membership. I will not lie, I felt fancy brunching at such a place.
