New York in a bag...

I'm back!...

And I brought back New York in a bag... well, a mini version of it! I found these lovely wooden miniature buildings, monuments and cars at the MoMA shop among other goodies that I couldn't resist bringing back in my suitcase (like the matryoshka measuring cups... so cute!).

I had a wonderful time in the Big Apple and, even though it was a short trip, I did and saw almost everything I really wanted to do/see for my first "adventure" in the big city... I came back home content and full of energy!

Some beautiful felt I bought at Purl Soho, a paradise for those who like needlework...

A cute picture of my friends and me after my shopping spree at Alexis Bittar's on my birthday... Too bad the stuffed zebra wasn't there anymore but it had been replaced by a hybrid warthog/bear and a stylish fox ; )

Now, let's get back to work!

New York, New York!!!

"First, we take Manhattan" by Irene Suchocki

Big news : this week, it's my birthday (a big, ugly one with a zero at the end...) and I'm going to celebrate in style! Ten years ago, I promised myself that for my **th birthday, I'll do something super cool like going to New York with a bunch of girlfriends to go shopping, visit museums, see a Broadway show, eat in hip restaurants and giggle all day long....

Well, here we are : )

First stop on Feb. 17th, Alexis Bittar's Soho shop! It's going to be very difficult to pick something among so many beautiful pieces..... I will probably have to buy a few ; )

Ok, in my fantasy world, this is ME on my birthday looking fabulous in my long, long, long Anthropologie dress.... definitely another shop I want to check out!

Hellooo Manhattan!!!
