Travel Diaries: NYC Shopping [DAY 3]

On our third day of our trip we mostly did our shopping.We spent most of our day in Soho, which was amazing!This was also our last day to go out! :(
[DAY 3]
1. Soho
So this day couldn't get any better! The sun was out and it was a beautiful day, unlike the rainy days we got. We got the chance to see such great stores such as Alexander Wang, Kate Spade, Chanel, Tiffany's, Stella McCartney,Yves St. Laurent, Dior etc... I mean I was in love with this area such a beautiful neighbourhood.

2. Highline Club
This club wasn't what we expected but we still had fun! Although the DJ was playing mostly big Hip Hop tracks to the wrong type of crowd, it was alright! Jamila and I made the best of it! I mean it was our last night in the big city.

Jamila and I were sad to leave but learned a lot from this city in those three days. If you want something you gotta hustle to get it! We both felt this mentality in New York because it is such a fast paced city. Although we aren't New Yorkers, we became New Yorkers at heart for those three days.We miss the views and the music and pray we can go back soon...

Travel Diaries: NYC Sight Seeing [DAY 2]

So here is the second day of our big travel to NYC. I will consider this day our sight seeing day. We did a lot in this day. We are troopers! We did so much exploring and walking around the city of course we were tired but we didn't stop.
[DAY 2]
1. The Brooklyn Bridge
I am just going to say this. If you haven't been to the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City you haven't seen New York. It has to be on the most beautiful monuments in this city. Although it was raining a bit it was still breathtaking it just captured the most beautiful view of the city.

 2. Amy's Ruth (Harlem)
This has to be hands down the best soul food place ever. I thought that Harlem's Underground was amazing but this was another level. Jamila was so right about this place! I loved the Harlem neighbourhood, I just loved its culture and we had everything we needed for great prices in one area.
 
3. Cake Boss Cafe 
The Cake Boss Cafe was so packed but we were glad the lineup went by so fast. Jamila and I wanted to see what the hype was all about it and since we couldn't travel to New Jersey to the actual bakery we got to taste some great treats! Their cannolis were amazing!

4. 40/40 Nightclub + Gansevoort Hotel
This had had to be the best night ever! We had a blast! We first decided to hit up 40/40 nightclub unfortunately due to the rain the place was empty but had amazing music spinning. We were sipping on Watermelon *Beyonce voice* and had fun but then decided to go to the Gansevoort Hotel were we spent the rest of our night. We had so much fun we left at like 4:30AM lol! DJ Chase was the sickest DJ I have ever heard spin. Overall this night was amazing!

Travel Diaries: NYC Eateries [DAY 1]

Hey there!
We have been away for a bit but Jamila and I had the chance to go to New York for a few days. It was personally my first time going to explore the city of New York and Jamila had the chance to go a few times before. I just have to say it was love at first sight. I fell in love with the city and its culture. We have always told each other that we will eventually end up moving to New York one day! I loved the fact that we were so organized and decided to plan an itinerary for ourselves when we got there and decided to save money and take the subway to get everywhere. I can't lie the subway was a little confusing at first but we got the hang of it in the end. We were there for three days and did quite a lot in those few days, I was shocked! Here is a summary and outfit description of our journey in New York.
Here is how we started our first day in the Big Apple:
[DAY 1]
1. Quick bite to eat at Cafeteria (located in Chelsea)
The mac 'n' cheese was amazing, so cheesy. This a great place to eat. Jamila and I weren't expecting it to be so filling. Jamila couldn't even finish her's lol. After this quick stop we decided to explore the area.

2. Getting ready to hit up Bob Bar + Times Squares + Shake Shack
So the night didn't go as planned! We went to Bob Bar expecting a great time but got there to see what we weren't expecting! So we switched our planned and went to Times Square to explore a bit and hit up the Shake Shack. They had such great food, ugh can't wait to go back and get more! Wish we had something like this in Toronto.
