Shopping In New York

If you couldn't have guessed already I could't wait to get to New York and hit the shops! After hearing so many good things about the shopping out there I just wanted to spend spend spend! 
And whilst I was there I literally took 'shopping until you drop' to a whole new level for me. 

New York has quite a few shopping areas in which you can go shopping starting with Times Square and the surrounding area which is jammed with store after store full of goodies all ready for you to select your chosen items and purchase. 

Around Times Square you will find the likes of your usual brands Forever21, H&M and any beauty addicts heaven Sephora. As well as that the further you walk down you will find Victoria's Secret, Urban Outfitters and Macy's to name a few. Also nestled in between are lots of little stores in which I hadn't heard of a few of them but one in particular I loved was a little shop called 'Ricky's' which was the best little find, again full of beauty goodness. 

Of course any shoppers must also visit 5th Avenue where again you will find such a large array of stores from Tiffany and Co., Hollister, Tommy Hilfiger as well as the larger department stores Saks 5th Avenue and Lord & Taylor. 

Obviously it doesn't stop there as New York is quite a big city and as well as the endless shops up and down the avenues I also recommend checking out Soho which you'll find the likes of Balenciaga, DASH, J Crew, Agent Provocateur and even Bloomingdales. 

There's such a huge choice of places to shop you literally won't get bored and if you're as much a shopper-holic like me then you'll be in heaven. 

I recommend visiting the big department stores as i've mentioned already as well as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus - even just to say you've been. 

As it was Christmas time when I visited everywhere was covered in wonderful window decorations and sparkling lights. They looked gorgeous! 

These Christian Louboutin shoes are to die for! 


How amazing! 

Remember there are so many places to visit in New York and if you can have been anywhere else then let me know would love to hear your recommendations. 

Aside from shopping in NY there is also a great outlet called 'Woodbury Common' which is located in New Jersey which is around an hour away on a coach. You can book a coach to the outlet, there and back, either through your hotel concierge or they will point you in the right direction to book with one of the travel agents. 

I decided to do this one day and left around 9.30am returning at 4pm and it was a great day out. What I also enjoyed was being able to see America in a different way to the busy bustling streets of Times Square. I was able to see the traditional housing and cute little neighbourhoods which is something i'd only ever seen on movies and tv. The journey flew over and I was so excited to get there and see what it was like and it didn't disappoint. 

It has an array of designer outlets from Balenciaga, Valentino, Celine, Versace to Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein as well as Kate Spade and Jimmy Choo. 

Whilst I was here I picked up some amazing little savings! (more on those later)

Beautiful blue skies and mountain views
