New York City – Day 1

August 29, 2012
I decided i would do a little photo diary/log thing on here. I just got back from the airport following one of the worst flights i’ve been on ever, I’m feeling pretty rough right now. So I last week i went to New York with my family and kind of for my 18th Birthday which is this Friday. I got to warn you these next couple of posts over the next week are quite photo heavy and wordy. 

We flew from Manchester to JFK and it was just over 7 hours and it was a loong flight. The in-flight entertainment was OK, I watched The Lorax and a lot of American sitcom episodes. The food was kinda crap too. We arrived in New York at 1pm so we still had chance to do a few things in the city!
The first glimpse of the Empire State Building from the taxi was pretty exciting! We stopped at a Hotel near Tiffany’s called The Salisbury – it was really lovely with two walk in wardrobes and a kitchen. The only problem is that there was work going on outside the hotel all through the night – I wouldn’t have minded the sirens but this was builders drilling. It was still a really lovely hotel.
First stop off was Tiffany’s which was a gorgeous store, exactly like in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. We looked around the sterling silver area for potential Birthday presents but i couldn’t decide so we continued to go down 5th avenue; Stopping in Henri Bendels, Michael Kors and Abercrombie & Fitch. 
Rockerfeller Plaza!
A couple of months ago we purchased the New York Pass for about £120 which is a card which entitles you entry to loads of attractions in NY including Madame Tussauds. I love going in here because i act like i’m fully meeting these people. The photos i took have come out horrendous, all the waxworks look rubbish! 
In Madame Tussauds there was a little TV section where you could act like your a news reporter!
For dinner we went to Hard Rock Cafe which is a huuge resturant inside and a great atmosphere, I ended up ordering Fish & Chips and ended up getting four huge fish pieces! It was yummy!
Times Square wasn’t what i was expecting, It was so much more bigger than i thought and it just wasn’t what i thought it would be. I really liked all the billboards and lights, Times Square was soo busy we didn’t up doing much. 

So that was Day 1, Let me know if you like these sort of posts! I’ve got lots of posts planned as i’ve been so busy! A New York Clothing & Beauty Haul will be up next week! Also don’t forget to enter my 400 follower giveaway here

    I can't wait fot your next posts! I'm in love with NYC and I really hope to go there soon.

    P.S. 7 hour flight is not that bad. Imagine being up in the air for 22 hours like I was when we were travelling to Australia. 😀
