Top 3 things to do in NYC (+honorable mentions)

The Big Apple is a top destination for tourist all around the globe and it’s no surprise to me. Why? Well, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting twice and it was beautiful to say the least. From being the city in the US with the most songs and having millions of movies filmed there it inspires the American Dream. So that’s why here is my top 5 list of places to visit

  1. Empire State Building Experience

No visit to New York City would be complete without a stop at this masterpiece of Art Deco design, and perhaps the most famous office building in the world. Opens daily from 8am to 2am.

      2. Statue of Liberty

They feature the largest man-made waterfalls in North America and are inscribed with the names of the nearly 3,000 victims. Opens daily from 7:30am to 9pm.

SLAY IT! This is for those of you out there who still can’t get out of your house without a big warm coat or jacket even tho winter is almost gone. Can’t believe this is my last post on winter outfits *sad* but spring is just around the corner and I have some awesome ideas! This look is perfect for a Friday rendez-vous, with a color palette of black (cuz dah!), brown and just a hint of gold. Did I say I’m in LOVE with that top from Charlotte Russe?
