Big Apple, Good Eats & Cute Fits

What up Cuties?

What’s good with you? I’ve been enjoying vacation with the family. By enjoying I mean listening to the kids fight more than usual. Listening to them tell me they are hungry 100 times a day instead of their normal 50. Oh and my favorite where are we going today question; you know the usual. I kicked off our “family” vacation with a trip to New York without the family. Makes sense right? A couple weeks back I mentioned I was going to travel alone for the first time. Well that sort of kind of still happened.

Sex in the City on my iPad + Ripped Jeans + Custom Converse {From Mi To You} + Ovesized Purse SO NEW YORK!

Amtrak got me there safe and in one piece. I had good comfort on the ride in.

A couple days before I left my cousin decided to join me. I was excited because I had invited her a few months ago.  With this last minute decision she took the bus up while I was on the train. Despite our different modes of transportation we arrived at the exact same time.  This was the first time either of us had traveled alone. This was a great first step in the solo travel.

I’ve know this cutie pie since we were kids; I’ve not seen her since then. She is in NYC doing her thing in the makeup industry.  We showed up with our nude face, bold red lips, white tee and blue cross-body bag. We cute! #BLMGIRLS

Cafeteria: Chicken & Waffles

Holey Cream, where dreams come true.

This right here is the entire Royal Family of #FatSnacks this place is small but we all know great things come in small packages. They have four seats on the inside and four on the outside. It won’t matter because you will only care about the amazing goodness you’ve ordered.

Because it’s a donut ice cream sandwich. Glazed donut + vanilla ice cream + vanilla icing + crumpled graham cracker.

This trip was just what I needed and the food was amazing as always. I’m already planning the next trip.
