It's Up to You, New York, New York!!

Well I can't believe it, 5 days have absolutely flown by. We had such a fab time, and a real 'new yorkers' experience I feel. Less tourist locations more cocktail bars and shopping. Below are a few of my favourite pictures from my trip, which sums up our 5 days chronologically ... and a few instagrams too :)

So there you go, a 10% summary of my NYC trip. I crazily had about 400 photos. Eek. I'm currently tucked up on the sofa with a hot water bottle with some jet lag and post holiday blues.  I'm going to do a few outfit posts from my trips over the next week as well as a little show and tell of my holiday buys :) I obviously spent over my £500 budget - no self control.
What do you think of my holiday pics? Would you like to see some holiday outfit pics and a shopping haul. I hope you all enjoyed the scheduled posts too.
