New York is probably my favourite city.. ever. If I could live there for a few years I would. I love everything about it and whenever I go back, I feel at home. A few weeks ago I decided I needed a break, and if I want a break, I have to leave the country. Escapism, wanderlust & all that.

I hunted for flights and when I found some for £350, I instantly booked them. I decided I needed to go alone. I wanted to experience travelling by myself anyway, and in a city I feel so at home, it was the perfect opportunity. I have friends there who I plan to meet up with, but in all honestly, I’m looking forward to being able to do whatever I want, when I want. Sometimes we have to be a little selfish don’t we?

I plan to see a show, walk for miles and have brunch in the most wonderful places. Spend too much money in Sephora, watch trashy shows when I can’t sleep & wake up early to see the sunrise.

A few people have asked me if I’m scared, and the honest answer is, not at all. I genuinely cannot wait! I’ve been looking forward to this trip for a while and now that its here, I could wet myself with excitement.

Im going for five days, which I think is enough. Its my 4th time visiting NYC, so I won’t be doing lots of touristy stuff. I fly tomorrow and my bags are all packed..

See you on the other side x
