new york city: days 1 & 2

Friday, 6 May 2011

New York was completely amazing. Full stop. Although I'm now completely knackered, I wish I could have stayed even longer, or forever actually. Having taken 500+ pictures, I was at a bit of a loss on how to show you my memories. I've decided to show you a snapshot of a couple of days at a time, and I might also post some extra bits and bobs e.g. what I bought (too much!)

Day 1: a group walk to Parsons: The New School for Design, where we watched end of year presentations / our first McDonalds with a frozen strawberry lemonade for lunch / more Parsons / a road that made us giggle: our hair went extremely static / Times Square: a half-hour chat with a man trying to get us to go to a comedy club, Forever 21, Sephora, Elmo, The M&M Store, a 'slice' for dinner, on the Forever 21 screen / Empire State Building at night where it was ridiculously windy.

Day 2: egg, bacon and cheese muffin / some Urban Outfitters, H&M etc / FIT Exhibition: 'His and Hers', which was pretty pants / first taxi hail to Meatpacking District: 'well hung' poster, Marc Jacobs, Bleecker, V Magazine/Lady Gaga display, yummy spaghetti and clams for lunch as well as a huge chocolate cake, identical Topshop / Ground Zero / Century 21 discount store / sweet potato fries at a diner / bar hopping.

For every single goddamn picture, add me on Facebook :)
