New York City: Shopping, Shopping, and Time with My Boys


Hi Everyone!

This week, I’m visiting New York City with Popeye and Swee’ Pea. I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the big city! Since this is Swee’ Pea’s first time in New York, I wanted to make sure that we hit all the iconic landmarks: Central Park, Empire State Building, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and of course – every store on Fifth Avenue! I guess I took awhile trying on all those clothes because, Popeye tells me that he took Swee’ Pea to both the World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty while I was busy shopping (whoops!). I heard there was even a helicopter ride involved?! I don’t even want to know what trouble they got up to! But if you’re interested, you can see more here: 

Obvious destinations aside, I wanted to show Popeye and Swee’ Pea some of the less crowded parts of New York as well. I arranged a nice little brunch for us in Brooklyn, before stopping by the Brooklyn Bridge to snap some pics! We’re making so many memories! Afterwards, we headed back to Manhattan, and walked through Union Square to visit the booths at the Green Market where we bought tons of fresh spinach. I think Popeye and Swee’ Pea both enjoyed looking at the fresh greens more than shopping with me 😂.

But you know I love shopping, and shopping allows me to stay stylish while getting in lots of exercise! After Fifth Avenue, I journeyed down to SoHo and then toured all the vintage thrift shops in Greenwich Village – so many finds you can’t get that anywhere else.

As you might remember from last week, I’m trying to be more conscientious of the clothes I buy <hyperlink to last week’s post>. Recycled style is the best and when it comes to unique vintage finds, NYC never disappoints.

Summer is a great time to get away and explore more of the world. We had a great trip and I’m already looking forward to our next one.
