New York in Pictures - Day 5

I woke up on my last day in NYC to grey skies and rain.

Begrudgingly getting out of bed, I decided it was best to make a start on packing my suitcases.

As we were catching a red-eye flight home, it meant we had pretty much a whole day to do whatever we felt like.

Obviously, we chose to shop.

Catching a cab uptown with the girls, our first port of call was a little visit to Kate Spade.

I'm a HUGE fan of the brand, so visiting the townhouse store on Madison was a dream. We instantly forgot about the weather outside as we fell in love with the new collections.

After purchasing a couple of treats, we headed down Madison Avenue in search of more retail therapy and popped into the MOMA, bypassing the huge crowds and heading in the direction of the Gift Shop.

Then it was on to the Rockefeller centre for a visit to J Crew, before dashing back to the hotel to cram my purchases into my suitcase and check out.

We met back up for one last hot chocolate at my favourite spot and then over to Sephora to get a couple of last minute pieces.

Before long, it was time to say goodbye to the rest of the group and head to the airport for our flight back home.

New York was such an amazing trip. After such a tough few months in my personal life it was lovely to get away and look at it from a distance. For me, it was one of those trips that made me very grateful to have such amazing friends and family,  and to realise what's important in life.

New York, you helped me in more ways than you'll ever realise.

I'll be back soon
