New York in Pictures - Day 3

It's not a Saturday morning without a hot chocolate for me, and I was not going to stop a tradition I've been working long and hard on just because I was across the Atlantic.

This one was a perfect way to start the day.

Just look at that marshmallow!

After a bit of people watching, and taking serious advantage of the bakery's free wifi to work out my route, I headed off for a walk downtown in search of breakfast.

New York in Spring is beautiful. There are a lot of green spaces in the city and, so many magnolia and blossom trees in bloom. 

Heading to the Nolita area of Manhattan, I only had one thing on my mind - brunch.

Not just any brunch as well - something simple but what I'd spent a lot of time craving about since I set foot on New York soil.

Black Seed Bagels are the best bagels around (sorry Bagelman) freshly made in store, I ordered my favourite (Lox, obvs) and watched the guys working hard making bagels whilst I waited.

After demolishing that bagel in record time, I headed further Downtown to pay a visit to Glossier's penthouse. They're a beauty brand based in NYC and currently don't ship to the UK, which I'm hoping (as well as a lot of other people) will change soon.

I was lucky enough to be in town on a day they were opening up their penthouse for beauty obsessed people like me to go and try out their products, and make a few purchases.

Which, is exactly what I did.

To be honest, they deserve their own post, so watch this space!

After a very unsuccessful and rude experience with Uber, I went to meet a couple of the girls for lunch in the Meatpacking district - my wedding dress diet clearly got lost somewhere between Heathrow and Newark!

To be fair, my attitude to food whilst out there was go hard, or go home and I most definitely wasn't going to do the latter!

After lunch the girls headed back to their hotel to nap, whilst I dropped in to the hottest department store ever, Macy's to pick up a few bits and take advantage of their Easter weekend discount. Cheap Levi's ftw! 

Then it was back to my room, for a little Kardashian's session (having E! in my hotel room was a highlight!) whilst getting ready for dinner in Nolita with the whole gang.

Head-to-toe in Topshop with a little bit of Whistles faux fur to keep me warm

I think I ate a whole weeks worth of calories in one day but, it was totally worth every mouthful!

Day 4 up soon x
