I heart NYC!!!

An amazing weekend ... the most perfect weather ... great shopping ... fabulous food!  What more does a girl need??  The bestie and I met up with Grove Gal for a girls weekend and a trip to the National Stationery Show.  We flew in on Friday night just in time for dinner and pomegranate margaritas at Rosa Mexicano.  A few margaritas and we ended the night with giggles and big comfy beds!!!

Saturday morning we were up and out just in time to snag some macarons at Laduree before the crowds gathered!


Laduree ... 
The most amazing macarons I have ever tasted.  I bought a box of six and a lovely tin of tea.  I can highly recommend the coconut, salted caramel and pistachio.  To die for!!!


Bel Ami ... Yummy french cafe.  Such a cute place with amazing ambiance!  Strong coffee ... just the way I love it!  



I love to walk the streets ... I could wake and snap photos for hours!!


Bardith Ltd ... the most amazing antique dish store.  So many amazing plates on each row.  


The bestie is coveting these perfect plates displaying her monogram.  A set of two will only set her back $3,000.  No biggie ... 
 



What would a trip to New York be without a stroll through the Lilly Pulitzer Madison Avenue store?
 

I love this cork board full of goodies ... reminds me of my cord board in high school.  
Old school Pinterest!





I am a big fan of these planters.  They were huge .. there are three big boxwood bushes stuffed in there!


Gorgeous door ... I would love to turn my key in that door when I got home!


Walking down Fifth Avenue reminded me of so many movies with one awning after another.  It could have easily been a scene from Sex and the City or Something Borrowed for sure!


I hear this is the best soft ice cream around.  There seems to be a Mister Softee truck around every corner and in front of every truck is a very long line!!


The Plaza ... I hope my next stay will be here!  A New York City icon!!!


 Bergdorf Goodman ... the best department store I have ever set foot in ... the shoe department and the designer galleries are worth every single second!!!


Afternoon tea at Bergdorfs ... I must say this was my favorite part of the entire trip.  I love having tea.  The atmosphere in the dining room is amazing and the food was simply delicious.


I drank every single drop of the tea in my pot.  I almost asked for more ... absolutely delicious!!


That bestie loves having tea just as much as I do!!  xo

A trip to Henri Bendel and dinner at Bar American and Saturday was nothing short of a perfect day!!

Sunday morning included a trip to the National Stationery Show and then off to hit the streets again!!!


Ah ... C Wonder.  I have been lusting after this store and site since it opened in late 2011.  I love every single thing on the site and the website is tiny compared to the fabulousness of the store itself.  

The colors, the green, the jewelry for days.  I could have moved in and stayed for days!!




We were tired after all that shopping at C Wonder and sat down for a yummy brunch of Huevos Rancheros and Bloody Marys.  We devoured an order of  "busted nuts" that were the best nuts I have ever tasted.  I so regret asking them what the spices were on the mix of walnuts, almonds and pepitas.  With the perfect balance of sweet and savory they were simply divine.  
 

Brinkley's in Soho ... great atmosphere and don't forget to order the busted nuts!!!


We walked quite a way hoping the New York Vintage shop was open on Sunday only to find it wasn't.  I don't know who was more upset ... the bestie or her tired feet!!!


We stopped in for warm Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip cookies.  OMG!! I have no words for the deliciousness that exists in this cookie!!!


Walking around the streets of New York in May you will find peonies on every corner.  I could have grabbed them up by the dozens and filled my suitcase for the return trip home.  They were GORGEOUS!!!

Another day of walking and gathering goodies and we were pooped!!  We headed back to our room around 6 and ordered in.  We were snuggled in our pjs and under those big yummy duvets watching tv and eating take out.  The perfect ending to a great weekend!!!

Until next time NYC!!

We definitely need to make our meet ups more than once a year!
