Fabulous Girl's Weekend In New York City

This past weekend (Thurs~Sunday) I spent a wonderful weekend in New York City with a dear friend Tania from the French blog Grange de Charme

It was cold for this girl (me) who has lived in Miami for a very long time...but we had loads of fun, did lots of shopping, took many taxis, drank coffee, laughed a lot, ate some good (and not so good) food and saw many tourist sites.

Tania brought her camera and I really needed a photography break so did not....so all of the photos below were shot with my iPhone5. I hope that you enjoy!
SNOW! A big deal to me...since I hardly ever see it...

And snow turns to slush quickly in the city...
We had a good meal at Balthazar...
Lillie's NY...a must see bar & restaurant for the fabulous collection of antiques in the decor...
Some gifts from Tania...including French magazines (my beach home is in the new Shabby Style:-), hand made treasures from her studio and macarons from Laduree. We didn't have time to visit the Laduree in NYC, so I was glad to have these and gobbled them in a flash...
Tinsel Trading...a shop filled with old and new millinery, ribbons, curiosities and more...
Tania and me in front of Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture, where we shopped twice, lol. I'll share what I purchased in another post soon...
All of the above shots taken in Shabby Chic Couture and I wanted to purchase it all, as you might imagine...
Another "must see" shop in NYC is ABC Carpet & Home...
All of the above are from ABC, that carries a wide variety of home furnishings to suit many decor styles from Bohemian to Modern Vintage. Very inspiring...
Some lovely fleurs at Dean & Deluca, where we stopped for coffee...
A shop window that promised Spring to come...
Night shots from my iPhone of the city that truly never sleeps and has great energy. Oh...did I tell you that my husband says he wants to move there if we win the lottery (not going to happen)?...
View from the Top Of The Rock...30 Rock that is, at Rockefeller Center...
Park Avenue area brownstones...
And lastly...Central Park, then headed to the airport and back home...
See you again soon with a Spring post....and a photo of a new throw just listed in the SHOP!




xoxo,
Janet

FABULOUS!! Question: You said your hubby wants to move there if you ever win the lottery. And you said "not gonna happen". Which? Winning the lottery or moving to NYC? Cuz not winning the lottery I can forgive, but not wanting to live in NYC.... I dunno... ;)

XOXO!
