This year I chose very early in the year to give my children the gift of inspiration and stimulation for Christmas! This summer I advised the hubby that we should spend Christmas in NY! He was on board immediately. Ironically enough the Brand Ambassador meet up for justfab.com was held there this past September ,so lucky me! This time around I truly had the New York experience as we walked everywhere -literally everywhere! We only paid for taxi to and from the airport to the hotel. We roomed at the Sheraton in Times Square. We made use our three day hop on hop off bus tour (the sales guy hooked us up) to get us to the Staten Island Ferry and from there we walked to the Brooklyn Bridge. Other than that we walked. This is where my love for walking, the CoolKids athleticism, and my husbands ex -football player turned coach status totally benefited us. I do not recommend that every family walks the entire city as we did! I had great experiences with Uber in NY in September.
I totally had a cliche wannabe moment and had to stop at Magnolia Bakery. Why? Only because it was put on the map by Sex and the City. Ha, I totally wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw when I rented my first apartment at the age of nineteen. The cupcakes are delish but you have to be patient as there will definitely be a line but the staff does a fantastic job at moving that line along. The hubby enjoyed their well known banana pudding and gave it a great review as well. So I recommend a stop at The Magnolia Bakery to fulfill your sweet tooth cravings and if you are looking for total comfort food I recommend Dallas BBQ in Times Square. Hubby and I will definitely be going back there. The food was so good we forgot to take pics! Wishing you a year of self growth, stay fabulous!
