New York Comic Con 2014

October 23, 2014

NYCC 2014 Recap
One of the reasons I was in New York last week was because of New York Comic Con. For the last four years, it has been a dream of mine to attend San Diego Comic Con. No offense to all the other Comic Con’s but SDCC just seemed like the Con of all Cons! Apparently, this year’s New York Comic Con attendance actually TOPPED July’s SDCC! So I guess in the end, I DID go to the Con of all Cons (thanks NYCC for the awesome time!) If I had to sum up the craziness of (any) Comic Con in three words, they would be: Panels, Cosplay and Booths!

A Visit To The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art

Last week, I started my trip to New York with a visit to The Museum of Modern Art (or MoMA!) I’ve wanted to visit MoMA since I was a little girl! Every time I go to New York, I promise myself that I’ll visit it but I never have time. I told myself that no matter what, the next time I visit I’ll make the time to stop by ALL the museums I’ve been itching to visit!

Luckily, the wonderful folks at CityPass wanted to help me fulfill this goal and provided me with a New York CityPass so I could visit some of New York’s most talked about destinations! Sorry in advance for the photo overload.

Touring Seventeen Magazine Headquarters

December 17, 2013

Every time I visit New York I try to do something I haven’t done before. Last week, I visited Hearst Tower to tour Seventeen Magazine Headquarters. It was such an amazing experience and it was really cool to learn how big time fashion magazines are ran. Inside Hearst Tower there was an Esquire exhibit about the modern american man. The exhibit included actors, comedies, news anchors and well respected politicians. Of the featured men, my favorites had to be: Stephen Colbert, Peter Dinklage, Matthew Broderick, Bradley Cooper, Bill Murray and Aziz Ansari. You can check out the exhibit hereContinue reading

A Weekend in New York City

December 3, 2013

Weekend trips to NYC are the best, am I right? I’ve been to New York a hand full of times and every time I go, I make sure I try and do the following things:
SHOP. I much rather prefer shopping in SoHo than Times Square since there’s less people and better shops. My absolute favorite store in SoHo is TopShop! Even though Chicago finally added this trendy store in 2011, SoHo’s TopShop will always hold a special place in my heart.
