Insta-Love: The Big Apple

Wednesday, July 11, 2012 94 0

I recently started using Instagram, and I’m now obsessed.

Here’s a sparkly glimpse into my amazing trip to NYC last week.

Our view of the Chrysler Building and the gorgeous moon from our hotel.

A funny, and slightly confusing street sign.

Gorgeous flowers at our lovely hotel, The Sofitel.

Hermes beauty products and fresh orchids in our bathroom…doesn’t get much better.

The food in NYC is to-die-for! Β Balthazar has the best french onion soup ever.

Sipping a Blood Orange Cosmo at Mario Battali’s Babbo, one of my new favourite restaurants.

I couldn’t go to NYC without visiting (and over-indulging!) atΒ Magnolia BakeryΒ and Laduree!

So cute watching the giant M&M do the cupid shuffle!

The Times Square M&M store carries Raspberry Chocolate M&M’s…so delicious!

NYC is definitely the shopping world capital! Here are 2 great displays at All Saints and The Gap.

My new favourite Kate Spade Skinny Mini Bow Bangle, bought at her Soho store.

Mother and Daughter enjoying the city.
