Start Spreadin' the News

New York, New York!cCm, M, and I in M's apartment. We took the ferry over to NYC and we stopped by to visit M and my aunt and uncle at their new apartment. They live in an absolutely stunning, all inclusive apartment building. It has a giant, up to date gym, a gorgeous terrace with a pool, spa, lounge, bar, dog park, dining areas, outdoor grilling stations that all have spectacular views across the river to NYC. It has a large parking garage so you can have a car, and a 3 minute ferry ride that takes you into the financial district is less than a block away. So that is how we got to NYC. We parked in their building, and took the ferry in! It was a scorching 100 degrees. I have never been so hot! The dress I am wearing is from Anne Taylor Loft. If you follow me on Twitter, I tweeted about getting this dress. It's a gorgeous dress and it was on sale for $10. Yes, $10. I picked it up and it was a 2 petite and I usually wear a 4 regular, but I guess the stars aligned that day because the dress fits like a glove! After we got off the ferry, we walked a bit to The Odeon for lunch. It was delicious, and the prices weren't too bad either. I had a chicken salad sandwich, my mom and dad both got the BLT, and cCm got croc monsieur. I would really recommend this restaurant. It's spacious, with a pretty dining area, full service bar, homemade ice cream, and delicious food. The service was top notch, and the dress is smart casual. cCm and I at The Plaza Hotel. Every time we go to NYC, we go here. Oh how I wish I could live there like Eloise! If you can't tell, cCm and I are obsessed with Eloise at the Plaza. I used to love the books as a child, and then, when the movies came out, I loved those too. This year, however, we were even more thrilled than usual because it was the first time we'd been back to NYC and the Eloise boutique was open.Outside of the Eloise boutique!
Young or old, this is every girls dream! When you first walk in, you are greeted with all different shades of pink. Lavish pink furniture, pink walls, pink displays, and a touch of Eloise everywhere you venture. Above, cCm and I are in the "dress up" room. It has adorable tutus and other costumes along with sweatshirts (cCm got one and it is adorable, I wish they had adult sizes!).They had the most adorable shopping bags. This one is cCm's. It had pretty fuchsia satin ribbon for the handles. As I said, cCm got a white sweatshirt that say's 'Eloise' large in her signature pink print and underneath it says 'At the Plaza' . It is really adorable, but they only had a child large, which fit too snug on me. However, I got the most adorable pink travel mug and a post card which I am going to frame for my dorm room because it matches perfectly with the rest of my pink decor. Seriously, if you have a chance to go to this boutique and are an Eloise fan, this is well worth it. I am telling you, if you have a little girl, it is a must do on your trip into the city.After the Eloise boutique we stopped at the Oak Bar for drinks. This is one of my favorite rooms in the entire world. I love the cozy but luxurious feeling of the entire space. The luxe wood paneling and sprawling paintings make for a really unique space. Plus the view out towards Central Park is also wonderful. Above is my dad and I.I just had to post these two even though I look awfully sweaty (hey, it was 100 degrees!). The first is Frank Sinatra and the next is Jackie O. To make it even better, Frank Sinatra was the man of the hour during our first stop at the Oak Bar. He played all throughout the day; I loved it!.

More to come on this extremely long post! Have a fabulous day!
Yours,
sCe

I love Frank Sinatra too! As a New Yorker, I absolutely love that song! Next time you go to NYC, make sure to eat dinner at Patsy's. Amazing Italian resturant, as well as one of Sinatra's favorite places to eat. My grandparents were eating there many years ago and had the opportunity to meet him! Glad you had a fun time! xoxo

So fun! My parents were married at the Plaza and we always go back to visit. Unfortunately the room where they had their reception has become offices since the renovation, but it was absolutely beautiful.
