More of my NYC Trip....

BlogFest was a nice event and for only $100 per person to attend, it was a great deal! I enjoyed the short time I attended, which was only the first day. So, that means I can't get really in depth - but I will tell you that I'll probably attend next year as well! We were all introduced to editors from several magazines, including House Beautiful and Veranda


The first event was mostly introductions as well as a nice delicious lunch on the 44th floor of the Hearst Tower hosted by House Beautiful Magazine!  


Below I'm posting pics of the event along with other places I visited while in the city! Enjoy!






Me, Sue DeChiara of The Zhush, Abbe Fenimore of studioten25, Beth Dotolo of PulpDesignStudio, Ashlina Kaposta of The Decorista



above: gift bags given to all os us at the end of the first event! 
below: My pedicure and the peep toe leopard heels I wore on the first day of BlogFest!




below: bracelets galore!!!  A stop at Lord & Taylor was much needed, I left with a few bangles. It's a shame that we don't have so many options here in Las Vegas. I went crazy when I saw the vast selection they had in this one department store!! 








below: I've spotted these studded bracelets all over the place, except here in las vegas. So the minute I saw them in NY, I had to buy one!











I really loved this all black Starbucks storefront. 




below: We ate at this cool spot in Soho called Boom. Lovely Italian dishes & a large skylight in the back.






below: Of course I had to make a stop at Magnolia Bakery. This was my first time ever in this amazing bakery. In fact..... it was so close to my hotel- and I had no idea!!  I always knew about the one located downtown, so this was a nice surprise as I was walking around midtown. They actually have four locations in the city, you can find them all here.



below: I bought these for my mom...











below: The best storefronts are in Soho....



below: my guy and I had lunch at Maze by Gordon Ramsey - which was delicious. Highly recommend it! 








below: I could not leave NYC without visiting the MOMA. Here I am standing in front of a Picasso painting, I was so taken aback...I love ART.



below: this exhibit at the MOMA blew my mind. For all of you who know the iconic 'I LOVE NY' logo by Milton Glaser, they also had the piece of paper he first scribbled his idea on. Very cool. 





below: Corrado on the upper east side was a great place to visit for cappuccino. One of the best I've had in the city. This location was on 70th & Lexington Avenue. Anyone else been there?






below: my guy waiting to hail a cab....right before it started raining, again!!

  9. Corrado is great! I used to work close by and stopped in quite often. Too many people come here NYC and only go to the touristy spots... and miss the actual great things about NYC. It seems like you did the right thing, made the right choices, and went to great places.

    Thank you for taking us along for the ride - strangely enough I'm feeling a little peckish now - I wonder why?

    Loving the selection of nail polish that you featured, I could wear every single colour in the selection.

    Happy day, xx Felicity

  46. I've had dinner on the 44th floor of the Hearst building!! AMAZING building. Would have loved to work there. Interesting story - When they were handing out office spaces during the fairly recent overhaul, the more successful the magazine, the higher the floor they were placed on! Apparently.
    Great pics, Jen - looks like such a memorable trip. I love NYC so much...
