I took a much needed vacation to New York City April 13 - 16 to visit my friend Dee (blogger from Pushing The Cutting Edge). It was my first time to the Big Apple ever, so I so nervous. My Delta flight was supposed to leave Charlotte at 1:10pm and because of my plane technical difficulties, I boarded a 4:05pm flight. Needless to say, I finally landed in NYC around 6pm. Of course, Delta didn't have my luggage because of the flight change, so I had to walk around the city with sweats and sneakers. I could care less and was ready to venture out and see everything I could that night before having to head back to the airport at 11:45 to pickup my luggage. We went to the Queens Center Mall where I bought some goodies from Forever 21+ and then to the infamous BBQ. I needed a drink after the day I had. Saturday, we headed to 7A in SoHo to meet up with a college friend and then shopping. SoHo was so my speed. I was so happy I had cash because I bought something from almost every street vendor I passed. I'm such an accessories girl, so I was in heaven at all the earrings I found at Necessary Clothing. All of the fashion, people, noise, and street action was overwhelming and breathtaking at the same time. I got to meet one of my blog followers as well. Over 500 miles away and a fatshionista recognized me! Sunday, Dee took me to Times Square and the wholesale jewelry district where I did more shopping damage. Later that night, we went to Brooklyn, so I could see the Brooklyn Bridge. It was so pretty. Although, my trip was short, I had an amazing time. I took so many pictures, ate tons of good food, and shopped until I dropped. I can't wait for my next visit to the Big Apple.
