Because I said so

You didn’t think that was going to stop me from going to NYC now did you? I didn’t think so.

You guys! I’m going to New York. I’m going to Blogher. I’m sponsoring myself. I’m going to eat oversized pizza and hot dogs. I’m going to have a coffee in a diner hopefully with a piece of pie. I’m going to walk in Central Park. I’m going to walk through MOMA by myself. I’m going to meet some American blogger’s that I became friends with over 5 years ago in the FLESH. I’m about to realise a lifelong dream.

And I just about can’t wait.

    Double thumbs up to realising a lifelong dream – think of the amazing photos you’ll be able to take while you’re there, not to mention the amazing people you’ll meet!

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17317677066408030053 Faux Fuchsia

    I luff NY. I went there alone too. Travelling alone is fabulous. Go to Rizzoli and Henri Bendels for me x

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/10820427670347489839 madeleine

    Two words. SHAKE SHACK. Get yourself there lady, order everything. Preferably the Madison Square Park one. The line up looks worse than it is. Oh, and also, this fabulous little bistro in the Village. Corner of Grove and Bleecker. Aussie barista, and hands down the best coffee you’ll get in NYC. Also, The Purl Bee in Soho. Get your MOMA tix online, and don’t go when it’s raining. Have a pastrami sub for me. Unbelievably jealous and equally thrilled for you.

    DUDE. This is all kinds of awesome! AND I will be in New York at the same time! In fact, we’re flying back to Sydney on the same day! You will have the most amazing time in the world’s most amazing city xxx

  • http://www.scarletwords.com/ Elizabeth

    You are going to have THE best time!

    Pro tip for MoMA: You are going to LOVE the gift store. You’re going to fall in love with the books especially and freak out at how cheap they are. But then you’ve got to get them home…

    I’ve used their international shipping (both while in the store and online from here) and it was really fast. Totally reasonable shipping charges too, especially if you’re buying gifts for a few people.

    Just don’t forget to treat yourself too!

  • http://lizzie-whatliesbeneath.blogspot.com.au/ Jo

    Excellent! Hope you got the sexy black dress and it’s getting packed….
