Obsession!

I really don’t know if it’s a girl thing but I love stationery. From a young age I was obsessed with all things stationery, I used to have one of those post office windows with stamps and stickers, it was one of the best toys I remember.  I also remember begging my Mum for animal stationery for my birthday, when other girls wanted Barbie’s I wanted stationery.   I always thought I would grow out of it but no, I’m 32 and I still LOVE stationery, note books, cute little accessories etc.  I really can’t get enough!   My stationery obsession is Kate Spade because everything they make is just stylishly adorable.  Here is my current wish list that will no doubt turn in to my Christmas wish list.



What your obsession? 

New York, New York

New York…what can I say, it was AMAZING, like seriously crazy good.  We started out our adventure in Times Square.  Thinking back I never expected it to be as busy, yes it looks busy on TV but seriously don’t wear expensive shoes because your feet get trampled to death.  There is so much awe and wonder around you that you can’t help stopping every two minutes to look up or take a picture, I'm sure I was peeing people off but what the hell I was in New York I wasn't going to miss a second of it. There was always something going on, naked cowboys singing in the street, superheroes on every corner, a random tennis tournament.  Seriously New York is the city that never sleeps.

 Riding the Subway Is pretty much the same as the Underground apart from the random people who start dancing and singing or selling cereal?!?!  

We did all the tourist stuff like, Lady Liberty tour, Grand Central, Central Park, the Empire State Building, Moma, 911 Memorial, The Museum of Natural History, watched the Yankees & took in a show.  I took over a thousand pictures that I am sure you don’t want to see but I have added just a few below.


 This was the view from our room, the ball looks much bigger on TV!









Ellissa and i both got excited because we had saw this on Glee!









  


We flew to Texas for a week then returned to New York for two nights before flight home.
On our second leg in New York we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria which is a truly amazing hotel, it is stunning inside, pure elegance.  We spent our last two days shopping on Park Avenue and Lexington. 
I love Bloomingdales, I visited my first store a couple of years back in San Francisco and fell in love,  who doesn't love the “little” “Medium” Large” Brown Bag’s?
I would recommend New York to anyone, it really has something for everyone!








The Fashion Book

Two of my favourite things...fashion and books!
 I was over the moon when i received this amazing book as a birthday gift. yes i have the best friends.

It's seriously HUGE, it's spanning almost 200 years of the fashion world and the people who created and inspired it. It’s a wonderful addition to any self-respecting fashionista.  Quoting Vogue "it's the Fashion Bible".
