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

New York City, According to my Camera

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday (I’m stuffed!) I’m FINALLY sharing the rest of my photos from my trip to New York last month! Don’t get me wrong, New York is a beautiful city, but I prefer Chicago 1,000%! Although, NYC is a great city to visit (every once in a while.) I had so much fun being a “tourist” and visiting all the museums and attractions. If I had to choose a favorite, it would be a tie between the MET and MoMA (what can I say, I love art museums!) I also really loved getting to visit the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island (I got the cutest little Christmas decorations from the Ellis Island gift shop!) I am planning on visiting New York again soon (maybe in February) but until then, I have all these lovely pictures to hold me over:

Until next time New York!

I know I’m a little late with some of my New York posts (it’s been almost a month since I went to NYC) but bare with me, I had so many photos to go through. I also had a mini scare two weeks ago because I thought I lost one of my memory cards (thankfully I found it!) After this post, I’ll only have one more New York related adventure to share with you all! Like I said in some of my previous posts, thanks to the wonderful folks at CityPass, I was able to visit a handful of amazing New York tourist destinations! One of those places was the lovely American Museum of Natural History. I can’t tell you how long I’ve wanted to visit this museum! While the museum itself was lovely, I do have one complaint. Why is the museum SO DARK?! Darkness aside, here are some of my favorite snaps from my trip to the American Museum of Natural History:

Asides from being so dark, the American Museum of Natural History was marvelous! I’ve actually heard from a few New Yorkers (and people who’ve visited this museum) that it is ALWAYS super dark (which is really weird.) After art museums, history museums are my favorite types of museums (luckily, I have the beautiful Chicago Field Museum right here at my disposal!) During my entire visit to the American Museum of Natural History, I keep pretending that I was in Night at the Museum! Can you imagine if museum exhibits really did come alive at night?!
What’s your favorite museum?

A Day at The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Happy November everyone! I’ve finally gotten around to cleaning out my camera and I’m excited to share some more of my favorite memories (and photos) from my trip to New York City last month! While in NYC, I had the incredible opportunity to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I’m a HUGE museum lover and every time I visit a new city, I always love to check out their museums. While this wasn’t my first time in New York (more like my eighth), it was the first time I visited ANY of the museums. While I like all types of museums, art museums will always have a special place in my heart! Here are some of my favorite photo’s I snapped while in the museum:
