A New York minute, or more specifically and accurate: a New York week. As I mentioned before in one of my posts it has been five years since I visited New York City last. Ever since I was a little girl I dreamed about going there and perhaps, one day, actually living in the Big Apple. It wasn’t until I was 21 that I visited the United States for the first time. I expected to be disappointed in New York, since I hyped it that much in my head beforehand, but the opposite was true. I loved it, so much! So I wanted to make sure that I would return on a very short notice, and so I did a year after that for research for my master thesis. I fell more and more in love with the city each day. And this time around, for something very special (I’ll share more very soon), I had the exact same but then on steroids. I need to be there, I need to spend even more time there. Obsessed. And so, in my dreams for now, I’m already scheming a plan.
One of the things that made this trip extra special was the hotel we were staying at, and I’d love to tell you why. I never stayed at the Royalton Hotel before, but I will definitely do so in the future if I ever get that lucky. Back to the roaring twenties as soon as you enter through the majestic doors at the front, with loads of dark wooden furniture for a cozy feeling. We shot part of this look downstairs, it almost made me feel like I was in a movie. I love the “hotel culture” as I call it, the way these locations are the place to be for locals and business people to have a drink after office hours or in the weekends. Making our way up to our room on the 10th floor (imagine the view!), we shot the rest of this look in our pretty and spacious suite. We had this huge couch next to the window, perfect for mornings in, daydreaming with a cup of coffee while looking out over the streets of New York City. Go check out my Instagram for more details snaps of the hotel, like the insane bathtub we used on a daily basis. When you’re just visiting it’s so great to stay in an area that’s very central (midtown) and right in-between everything fun that’s around (and no, I’m not talking Times Square, although that was awesome to shoot at). A few blocks up we could find Central Park and the more luxurious shopping area (hello Barneys!) and a few blocks down we easily strolled past the Empire State building towards Union Square. We’ve done so many amazing things, ate at so many cute restaurants and did some great shopping throughout those 7 short days in the city. Dying to share more about our adventures, but my tips I’ll save for another post as I have many more to share with you guys. Let’s connect soon!
Big thanks to the Royalton Hotel for taking such good care of us, hopefully we’ll be back soon!
