My New York Visit!

May 16, 2019

Happy Friday! I'm sorry I don't have a fit review for you guys, I was with a friend when we passed a Lululemon store on Monday and I asked do you want to go in? She said, "No every time we go in there, I end up buyin' something!" I laughed and we kept walking. Plus it was raining and we had our umbrellas and not to mention it was 48 degrees so it wouldn't be fun to do a fitting room post with all the soggy clothes and bags. 😣

These photos sum up my week in New York. Warning- photo heavy!

First day on arrival it was a gorgeous sunny day. Perfect for some outdoor exercise. I just got off of a flight and was pretty lethargic (travel usually makes me tired) so I just did some walking. My sister went for a run.

Little Bay Park with a view of the Throgs Neck Bridge.

My sister up ahead, she's the same size as me so technically we can share clothes, but we don't.

Twinsies! But we look nothing alike. Hahahaha.

Always happy to see my grandma. 

Day 2- My dad made this special soup that only gets made once a year for the winter equinox, but since I missed it, they made it again just for me!

I have the recipe now, so I will try and make it when I get back to ATL.

Day 3- Went into the city and met up with my friends for some dim sum and shopping and then happy hour!

Dim sum at Jing Fong. Solid place.

Afterwards we did a little walking and shopping at Allbirds.

I want these flats so bad, but they're completely sold out in all sizes! I'm waiting for a restock. 

Wet & rainy. All day long!

Then we went to Happy Hour at Barn Joo. I love those bookcases along the wall. 

$1 each! We ordered two dozen plus a lot of other food I won't post.

Day 4- More dim sum with my parents. They took me to my favorite place called Lake Pavillion near Flushing. It's the best I've ever had.

Tripe. Looks gross, but it's tasty.

Shrimp wrapped in rice noodle with soy sauce. Soooo yummy.

Best egg custards I've ever had as well!

Day 5- I went into Chinatown for my dentist appointment. My teeth are fine, but can I just say the x-rays hurt so bad! I have a small mouth and the giant prong called the bitewing digs into my upper and lower mouth. It is sooooo painful. I can't believe they had to take 24 slides to get my entire mouth. After that I went to my eye doctor for an exam and it turns out my eyes are actually improving! I couldn't believe it. My eye sight is also pretty bad, it's -4.75 and -5.50. It used to be worse. After that I met up with my mom and brother for some more delicious food at Noodle Village on Mott street.

I said good bye to my mom and my brother and then walked to my previous job on Water Street to say hello to old co-workers. It was nice seeing everyone. I try and do this once a year. I was lucky to work with some great people and sometimes that's all that matters at a job. They end up becoming more than just co-workers, they ended up becoming family and that's very rare in this day and age.

Finally got to see the Fearless Girl statue which now moved to the front of NYSE.

Then I met up with an old friend at a bar called One if by Land, Two if by Sea. This was Aaron Burr's former carriage house and apparently it's haunted by twenty ghosts, is what she told me. It definitely looks and feels haunted.

One if by Land, Two if by Sea

We had a couple of drinks and then moved on to Las Ramblas. It's a cute little tapas place. 

Chorizo with cannellini beans.

Day 6- I met up with an old doll friend who I haven't seen in probably a year. Lots of catching up to do! But first we went to Jackson Hole Diner because it's hard to find a good diner in Atlanta. Sad, but true!

I had french toast, but also with eggs and homemade fries that are not pictured. The french toast actually wasn't that good this time around. I was sad.

After we went over to her place and I met her new dog Finn. He's a Blue Heeler that just turned one year old. He was a bit hesitant at first, but after I played fetch with him in the yard he warmed up to me pretty fast! True to his name, he nipped at my ankles trying to corral us to go back upstairs from the basement when we went to look at her toys!

Finn is such a sweetie!

I got a tour of her doll collection. My friend is a crazy doll collector. She collects lots of different kind of dolls. She's also a huge Jamie Dornan fan!

Creepy, I know. She has five. LOL.

And here's my last dinner with my parents. Home cooked (mostly) and will miss all of this. My New York trip went by fast, but I can't wait to be back home with my husband and five cats. I miss them all so much!

That's it for me! Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Did you microblade your brows? I was looking at your fit reviews. I think size 4 lulu looks too big on you. Ever tried to size down? Have you tried the lulu noir crops before?

    1. Hi there. I had my eyebrows tattooed about a year ago.
      Bottoms I am almost never a size 2. Always too tight in the waist for me. I have tried on the Noir Crops and they were so horrible on me I didn't bother posting a review here! They were not crops, full length and just looked silly.

  2. I think you and I are almost the exact same size. I tried on the on the fly 7/8 pants today. They fit like full length pants on me. You said you didn't like now the on the fly crops flared at the bottom, well the 7/8 pants are tapered, you can get them shortened for free. the woven fabric is also more dressy for the office. Hope that helps, the noir crops are all sold out in canada, i was hoping you could try them on as they're still in stock in the usa. pls do a fit review if you can Thank you

    1. I haven't tried on the 7/8 length but just by looking at the pictures I think the pant leg will be too baggy even if I have them shortened. How tall are you?
