I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day Weekend, I know I did! Classes began last week and then we had a long weekend and guess where I decided to go?! That's right, New York! It was a rather spontaneous trip and we know how much I live for that. Typically, I don't just leave on the weekend while I'm at school but it was necessary. So Friday, three other girls and I roadtripped from Buffalove to NYC. Seven hours of bumping to EDM, excitement, and attempts at studying lead us to Astoria in Queens, the location of where I'd be staying for the next few nights.
I found myself in a very small, cozy apartment that was maybe the size of two bedrooms but I didn't expect anything more in the crowded city. Friday night was spent at a restaurant/ bar until 3 am chatting with friends and relaxing.
Saturday we found ourselves running around the streets on the Upper East Side, Midtown, and Times Square. One of my favorite things to do in the city is to... EAT! I'm such a foodie. I felt guilty after eating so much but the amount of walking we did balanced it out (not really). Our first stop was Sprinkles Cupcakes with the Cupcake ATM machine! I got my favorite Banana Dark Chocolate!
Next, we had lunch at an Asian restaurant. Normally, I have great experiences in New York City at restaurants but this was not one of them. I ordered Pad Thai and I had maybe two bites before I felt sick. It looked appetizing though!
Now for my absolute favorite, we had to make a pitstop at Macaron Cafe!
