NYC Holiday Windows

There is nothing like New York City during the holidays. I always visit Herald Square, Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue at this time of year. Itโ€™s become a tradition!

Carnival games seem to be the theme for Macy’s and Bergdorf.

Here are my favs from Macyโ€™s:

Here are my favs from Bergdorf:

Saks had an amazing Frozen display. Still haven’t seen the movie yet though!

Winter Lantern Festival

Last week, Andrew and I accompanied my Aunt and Uncle to the Winter Lantern Festival at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden in Staten Island. The holiday light show had over 1000 lanterns of various figures – mostly animals and flowers.

Here are my favs:

It was def. fun as a group. We had a blast.

Halloween 2019

Itโ€™s been a minute but Iโ€™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 donโ€™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 wasnโ€™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 didnโ€™t dress up this year but our cats had no choice.

I was expecting them to fight me on this but they didnโ€™t even meow! I dare say they might have enjoyed it.

Happy Halloween!

Christmas in New York- Christmas Trees ๐ŸŽ„

This Christmas -and the whole December really- has been a complete blur. Happy I got a chance to walk around and enjoy the beautiful ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ„ all around. Here are my favorites…

Saw this beauty at Tiffany’s.

Bryant Park’s ๐ŸŽ„.

The beautiful and classic Rockefeller Center ๐ŸŽ„.

Henri Bendel wins for most creative tree in my book ๐Ÿ˜‚. 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 ๐ŸŽ„ at the MET Museum ๐Ÿ˜‡.

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! ๐Ÿค–๐Ÿค–๐Ÿค–

My first stop, Macyโ€™s.

Second, Tiffany ๐Ÿ’.

My first time inside Henri Bendel! That is quite an impressive tree ๐Ÿ˜‚. Too bad they are closing ๐Ÿ˜ž.

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.
