So I thought it was high time that I started bringing you some lifestyle posts of things that I am getting up to whilst living in New York. My mum has been visiting from the UK for the past two weeks and the other night we headed into Manhattan to Greenwich Village. It was the perfect evening, the sun was shining and we had a lovely stroll around to area, nipping to a bar for a glass of Prosecco, followed by a walk down Bleecker Street. Bleecker Street has beautiful designer boutiques like Burberry, Mulberry, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Lulu Guiness. It is also a beauty lovers haven with the likes of Nars, Mac and Marc Jacobs Beauty all having individual stores.
As we strolled down the street I saw an Ash Shoes shop where everything seemed to be discounted. I went in looking for the Jalouse boots that I always see Anna from Vivianna Does Make-Up wear. I really liked them but decided they were more summer appropriate. The lady then showed me these ‘Yes’ Boots which I instantly fell in love with and thought they would be perfect for the Autmn/Winter season ahead. They are made with real shearling and have have a concealed heel and are the just the most comfortable boots ever, I can see me getting a lot of wear out of these over the coming months. Discounted from $335 to just $120 (approx £80), it was a deal I couldn’t refuse for a pair of quality boots.
A short walk down the road, we stumbled on the Marc Jacobs Beauty store, which FYI smells incredible, they had one of their scented candles burning which made to the whole experience so pleasurable. I was instantly drawn to their new Kiss Pop lipsticks, which have the most incredible silver packaging. I don’t want to tell you too much about this as I will be reviewing it very soon, but I picked up the shade Heartbreaker, a beautiful pinky coral that looked incredible on that I just had to snap it up! There is a sneaky snap of me wearing it over on my Instagram.
This little shopping trip was concluded by an obligitary stop in the famous Magnolia Bakery, which appeared on Sex And The City and sells the most incredible cupcakes, cookies and other beautiful sweet treats. I bought a few cookies to take home for my boys and left Bleecker street a very happy lady!
