New Yorker Moments

This week my childhood bestie came into town, so we decided to deck the halls and paint the town red…so red, in fact, I bid adieu to blonde Jess and went ginger for the duration of winter…talk about spicing things up! ┬áHere’s a few of my favorite stops along the way:

What things do you do this time of year to get into the holiday spirit?

{28th Street in Chelsea smells like snow-frosted pine}

{Rolf’s German Restaurant sure knows how to string some twinkle lights}

{Cupcakes from Billy’s Bakery are one of my favorite treats}

{The Blue Christmas Tree at Bryant Park shines bright like a diamond…sorry, a gaggle of teenagers were singing that song on the subway today, and it’s been in my head ever since…just sharing the love, NYC}

    • Thanks Cindy! Happy holidays to you and yours, too!:-)

    • Haha, it’s a bit more “Pippi Longstocking red”, lol.

    • Ohh, that cake sounds divine! Now I’ll have to search for some, too:-)

    • Thanks! And yes, being surrounded by garland and ornaments definitely helps one get into the holiday spirit!:-)

    • I totally dug the German restaurant decor, too! Absolutely dripping with the Christmas spirit!:-)

  2. Hair looks great Jess! .. and so does that cupcake. mmmm I usually tend to indulge in way too many treats and become even lazier than usual to get in the holiday spirit, it can’t be helped. Decorating and visiting family and friends is also on the list :)

    • Food during the holidays is just SO good, isn’t it?!

    • Haha, it’s funny you say “pink-head” because my biggest fear is after a few weeks of washing, my hair will fade to pink, lol!:-)

    • Thanks Cari! It really is the most wonderful time of year in the city!:-)

    • Why thank you my dear! Look forward to more festive times in a few weeks! xx
