Halloween 2019

It’s been a minute but I’m back! Life happens and sometimes you just have to keep your head above water.

Celebrating Halloween is usually hit or miss for me. This year, I celebrated by carving pumpkins! I don’t have any memory of doing this when I was younger so I was truly excited. I would have loved to have gotten my pumpkins from an actual farm but it wasn’t in the cards. Got mine at Home Depot.

Here are some pictures of my husband and I having a blast.

The final products:

Mine, the true classic…

My husband brought out the creativity…

So happy how they came out!!

I want this to become a family tradition, even get other family members involved!

We didn’t dress up this year but our cats had no choice.

I was expecting them to fight me on this but they didn’t even meow! I dare say they might have enjoyed it.

Happy Halloween!

Christmas in New York- Christmas Trees 🎄

This Christmas -and the whole December really- has been a complete blur. Happy I got a chance to walk around and enjoy the beautiful 🎄🎄 all around. Here are my favorites…

Saw this beauty at Tiffany’s.

Bryant Park’s 🎄.

The beautiful and classic Rockefeller Center 🎄.

Henri Bendel wins for most creative tree in my book 😂. The tree is made of all different kinds of gift boxes.

This is the beautiful tree at the New York Junior League.

Another classic but one of my favorites, the 🎄 at the MET Museum 😇.

Christmas in New York – Store Window Displays

I love this time of year. I especially love walking around and enjoying the decorations and windows. This year seems to be the year of the robot. They were everywhere! 🤖🤖🤖

My first stop, Macy’s.

Second, Tiffany 💍.

My first time inside Henri Bendel! That is quite an impressive tree 😂. Too bad they are closing 😞.

Lastly, my absolute favorite, Bergdorf Goodman. I particularly like the fact that they played with the idea of using sweets in their displays this year with a gingerbread man window and bakery/cafe window.

Macy’s Annual Flower Show

 

I look forward to the flower show each year. It always makes me think of spring. The beautiful flowers are a tease of what is to come and a reminder of what I will never ever accomplish in my own garden and I’m ok with that :).

This year’s theme was ‘Once Upon A Springtime’ and it definitely had the fairytale look down with a storybook entrance, dragon and villain throne lol. I especially loved the detail on the throne and overall loved the lovely flowers. Here were my favs.
