Home sweet home πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’•πŸ’« Back in London for Christmas and yes I miss NYC and all it's carby, wonderful goodness but I am SO, so ready for London Christmas markets, mulled wine, mince pies, cosy girls nights in and finally wrapping up work and entering full Buddy the Elf mode πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽπŸŽ‰ 7 DAYS TO GO GUYS πŸŽ„πŸ’•

The Official London Eye

When I grow up, I want to have as much pure fire sass as @elan_cafe which I think we can all agree is the BeyoncΓ© of coffee shops? πŸ˜πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸŒΈπŸ’• Apart from doing a fab job of camouflaging myself amongst the surroundings (πŸ™„πŸ˜‚), I've also prepped a den for Netflix, naps and snacks for when I get home. I hope your Sunday is full of as much joy - and carbs - as mine is!!! πŸ«πŸ›πŸ’•


When sleepovers with your bestie involve Rose Petal baths, Prosecco, Cake and Harry Potter marathons πŸ˜πŸ›πŸŒΈπŸ₯‚πŸ’• Arrived home from NYC, checked into the @ampersandhotel with @allyinblunderland , ran a bath, ordered room service, discovered what heaven on earth actually feels like πŸ˜­πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Have the best Saturday evening guys, hope its as Rock n roll as mine πŸ€˜πŸΌπŸ˜‚πŸ’•

The Ampersand Hotel

Oh New York, I love you more than Saturday Grey's Anatomy marathons and pancakes in bed... I hope you realise how much that is! βœ¨πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ—½πŸ˜πŸ™οΈπŸ’• So sad that my favourite trip ever has finally come to an end. NYC, thank you for the lols, unforgettable memories and carbs. See you soon πŸ’«β€οΈ

Top Of The Rock NYC

I have a S'mores Hot chocolate (extra marshmallows, obvs πŸ¬πŸ™ŒπŸΌ) and I'm at the famous Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Centre.... CHRISTMAS IN NYC YOU ARE DREAMY AND MAGICAL AND I LOVE YOU MORE THAN CARBS! πŸ˜­β˜•οΈπŸŽ„πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜πŸ’• Keeping my hot choc warm for blimmin hours (12 in case you're wondering) with my @chillysbottles and honestly guys, I'm genuinely obsessed with them! Obviously they look sassier than Beyonce but being able to take my teas/coffees/hot chocs/water with me wherever I go just makes the inner granny in me the happiest old lady alive πŸ˜‚ I've got a little code for you all (15% off with CHILLYSEA15) but I honestly couldn't recommend them enough, for yourself, or for a gift for someone you love (because what says I love you better than 12 hours of warm Tea?) πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ’•Ad #Chillyseverywhere

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Lighting 2017

Soaking up the last of the magic (... apparently all on my hat πŸ˜‚) before leaving my favourite place on earth β„οΈβœ¨πŸ˜©πŸ—½πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’• In preparation for a severe case of the NYC blues I have lined up a day of Harry Potter, hot chocolate, movies (something Ryan Gosling related, obvs) and chill to forget that I'm not actually Carrie Bradshaw/Serena Van Der Woodsen living my best NYC pizza/pancake life β˜•οΈπŸ«πŸ˜­ #newyorklife #ellenextdoor

Bow Bridge

So, New York know how to do Christmas don't they?! πŸ˜πŸŽ„πŸŽ‰πŸ’•βœ¨ I didn't think I'd ever find anything more magical than the moment I discovered gluten free doughnuts and dumplings but then I saw the Rockefeller Tree and OMG CAN YOU EVEN COPE WITH HOW PRETTY IT IS? πŸ˜­πŸ’• #almostprettierthanryangosling

Oh Hi Reeses Pieces peanut butter Milkshake for breakfast, how ya doin'? πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ˜πŸ¨πŸ’• Just a little heads up for any coeliacs/gluten free'ers, without the pretzels and wafer the Black Tap sweet n salty shake is gluten free! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽ‰ Ps also taking votes for who wore it better out of me, the wall and the floor πŸπŸ˜‚

Black Tap Midtown

New York, you are pure magic βœ¨πŸ—½πŸ’• Seeing as I'll never make it to Hogwarts, I've realised I just need to visit NYC for my dose of magic instead and I'm A-OK with that πŸ™ŒπŸΌ There's something about this city that makes me feel like I can do anything. Alicia Keys really was right when she said that these streets will make you feel brand new, and the big lights will inspire you (no YOU'RE hormonal and emotional). She didn't mention that you'd eat the best pancakes and pizza of your life but there's also that too πŸ˜‚ I love you NYC πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έβ€οΈ

On Wednesday's we wear (... and shove ourselves in front of to distract from the jet lag and eye bags) PINK πŸ’πŸΌπŸ’• Took the family to Pietro Nolita just to show them THAT pink palace that dreams were made of after strolls around Central Park and before heading to Brooklyn for Pizza/Dan & Rufus Humphrey stalking and I think it's safe to say, I was living my best life! πŸ‘―πŸƒπŸ•πŸ’• #onwednesdayswewearpink

Pietro Nolita

Just when you think New York couldn't get any more magical.... it snows β„οΈβœ¨πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ˜ Central Park in the snow is as special as Harry Potter/Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively together and I basically just never ever want to leave so who fancies getting a girls apartment in NYC together and living our best lives? πŸ‘―πŸ˜‚πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’•

Bow Bridge

One hand in the air for the big city πŸ™‹πŸΌβœ¨βœŒπŸΌπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’• Today I might have shed a tiiiiiiiiny little tear over how magical New York is and how much I love it here and how much I don't want to leave so BRB whilst I google Visa's/dreamy Manhattan apartments (that I can't afford πŸ˜‚) grab a dollar slice and a cupcake ATM to go and spend the evening planning my new Carrie Bradshaw life πŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ•πŸ°πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
