New York City (Part 2); Brooklyn Bridge, Rockefeller Center, Shops + Cafes!

Day 2 in one of my favorite cities, NYC!! We had the best day filled with adventures, exploring, plenty of photos, and of course some hot tea and matcha!!

Bonjour, New York!

Sézane L’Appartement New York was one of my favorite places we visited!  It is a beautiful store and a small cafe mixed into one aesthetic, gorgeous space and it is perfection!  I purchased two very special items from Sézane before leaving NYC, so definitely check out today’s vlog (bottom of this post!) and Friday’s vlog to see what I picked up!

Cha Cha Matcha had been on my “places to visit in NYC” list FOREVER, and it was absolutely worth the wait!! I had a matcha latte with coconut milk, but they had tons of yummy drink options as well as some allergy-friendly, vegan treats!! Plus neon pink and palm leaves, totally adorable (and photo worthy)!

This wasn’t even my drink, but I couldn’t resist snapping a quick picture!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I hope you have had a beautiful week so far, and your 2018 has been filled with love and happiness!

I’m (finally) sharing our adventures from our 2nd day in NYC, which was a day filled with the cutest coffeeshops and exploring the beautiful city! Our first stop was to the Brooklyn Bridge, where we had a mini photoshoot (post coming soon!) and enjoyed the incredible view!  It was both freezing and windy, but we braved the elements to snap a few pictures! 

Afterwards, we ate some lunch and stopped by Cha Cha Matcha, where I enjoyed a matcha latte with coconut milk!  I highly recommend visiting if you enjoy matcha, because it was easily the best matcha latte I’ve ever had!  Not to mention, it was absolutely adorable!

Next we met Jake and Ally at Sézane L’Appartement New York, where we did a little bit of shopping and enjoyed some hot apple cider and hot tea!  My Instagram has been filled with pictures from Sézane, because I am seriously obsessed with that place!!  They also have an online shop, so definitely take a look!

To end the day, we walked over to see the Christmas tree and decorations at Rockefeller Center, and we stopped by Anthropologie and did a little bit more shopping!  Visiting Rockefeller Center on a Saturday evening right before Christmas was definitely an adventure in itself (specifically, making our way through the sea of people), but it was absolutely beautiful and such a dream!

Watch my vlog from our second day in NYC!

I will be sharing more posts and vlogs from our adventures in NYC this week, so definitely stay in touch for those!!  If you haven’t already, check out my New York City (Part 1); Times Square + Christmas Market Adventures post!  I hope you all have a beautiful day!

Love & Good Vibes

    The photos are gorgeous! It makes me miss NY so much! We used to go to NY pre-kids every 3 months; now we rarely do! Looks like you had the best time in NY!
