Christmastime in New York City

Christmastime in New York City
Before I head out on my next adventure (I’m heading to Disney World next week then I’m going on my first Disney Cruise on January 2), I wanted to give you guys a little “recap” of my last trip, to New York City. Although I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with New York City, I always have a blast there during the holiday season. I love getting to see all of the amazing Christmas decorations and holiday window displays throughout the city. I also love all the fun and festive winter activities there are to do! (I know it’s technically still fall but bear with me).

Here’s a little recap of my trip to New York City:

Louis Vuitton “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” Exhibition in New York City

Louis Vuitton "Volez, Voguez, Voyagez" Exhibition
You guys, I’m SO excited because next week is CHRISTMAS! I feel like I’ve been in the Christmas spirit since late-October (which is when I put up my Christmas tree) and I can’t believe the big day is almost here. Christmas is my favorite holiday and this is definitely my favorite time of the year. 

While I was in New York City two weeks ago I got to visit the “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” Louis Vuitton exhibition at the American Stock Exchange Building. The “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” exhibition first launched in 2015 at the Grand Palais in Paris and since then it’s made stops in Tokyo and Seoul. The exhibition, which is about roughly 80 percent the same as what was on display at the Paris original, tells the story of the brand’s 160-year history. 

The Louis Vuitton “Volez, Voguez, Voyagez” Exhibition in New York City is definitely a must see:

Saks Fifth Avenue’s Snow White Holiday Window Displays | NYC

Saks Fifth Avenue Snow White Holiday Window Displays
It’s no secret that I LOVE Christmas. And if you spend 0.001 seconds on my blog then you’d know I LOVE Disney too. So of course I get a little giddy when the two are combined! During the holidays I love going downtown and looking at the festive Christmas decor and fun holiday window displays. And although I’ve visited New York City during Christmastime before, I never get tired of seeing all of the amazing Christmas decorations throughout the city. 

This year Saks Fifth Avenue’s holiday window displays paid tribute to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in honor of its 80th anniversary! Over my four and a half days in New York city I got to experience these marvelous window displays during the daytime and at night. I personally think they were gorgeous regardless but they were extra festive at night.

Saks Fifth Avenue really outdid themselves with these Snow White holiday window displays:

New York Comic Con 2015

October 14, 2015

New York Comic Con 2015I just got back from New York City yesterday and boy am I exhausted (no seriously, I think I’m going to have to sleep for two days straight just to regain my strength.) While I was in NYC, I attended New York Comic Con (for the second year in a row) and let me tell you, New York Comic Con 2015 was CRAZY (and not in a good), especially compared to last year. The crowds were so crazy! In fact, it was so packed that you could barely walk around without feeling overwhelmed (I even found it hard to breath at times.) Sure, last year was pretty crowded as well but this was a whole new level of chaos. I’m pretty sure the Javits Center reached capacity quite a few times during New York Comic Con last week. Nevertheless, I did have a great time at New York Comic Con (even though it was super packed and chaotic.) The fun panels, awesome cosplay, cool collectibles and amazing artists and artwork definitely outweighed the negative accepts of NYCC! (Side note: This is my fourth day on WordPress and I am absolutely in LOVE! My traffic has tripled in the past weekend alone?! I’m so happy I FINALLY took the plunge and switched from blogger!)

Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night [SNL Live Taping]

January 21, 2015

Saturday Night Live TapingLast Saturday I got to cross off something that’s been on my Bucket List since I was SEVEN years old: see a live taping of Saturday Night Live! It all happened SO FAST! I got the email that I had gotten tickets on Monday (they only give you a weeks notice,) booked my fight on Tuesday and flew to New York City that Saturday morning! Sometimes spontaneous trips are the best trips, right? Let me just say, I am a HUGE saver. I only spend money when I absolutely have too (my family calls me frugal, but it works to my advantage!) Whenever I get paid, I put certain amounts away in my ‘upcoming trips fund’ and my ’emergency fund’! This was definitely an ’emergency fund’ situation (since my trip fund is for planned trips, not last minute ones.) Like I said, call me frugal all you want but if I wasn’t, I wouldn’t be able to travel as much or get to take random weekend trips to NYC to see SNL!  Continue reading
