I'm Sorry London...

But I love New York....


AND I'm going back there in a WEEK!!!!! If you often read our blog, you may remember this post where I spoke of two exciting things happening. This is the second thing that I did not want to jinx before I actually got confirmation! I am so excited (^_^) (^_^)! I have been waiting for this day since I came back from New York in July last year! and I have been in anticipation of this February trip since November when I was told it was happening. It was at my friend, Rachy's, 21st Birthday where her mother announced a trip for her and a friend to go to New York as a 21st bday present. And out of all the people in world, she chose me! This is my beautiful friend Rachy throwing peace signs, who is also an aspiring designer (she made the dress in the pic below) so watch this space and remember her face:


And this is a picture of Stephie and I, June 2008, in Harlem Baby:


The New York air made both of us glow in a way which London has never done. I really do love NY! Isn't it odd how another country can just make you lose all the insecurities which you hold back home? For example, I would never walk out my house bare legged in London (and I am pretty sure Stephie wouldn't as well), whereas in NY it was not even a problem that crossed my mind. I was so conscious of bare legs that I brought 7 pairs of nylon tights with me, and believe me it was over-bearing hot out there.

Oh and hopefully, in one week's time, I will be doing some more of this:

...But not on such an extreme level. This was in Brooklyn and these bags were not your average carrier bags. They were actually the size of black bin bags!!! They were HUGEEE!!!!!

Kay said...

This is so exciting! Make sure to be cheesy and buy an I heart NY t-shirt.
Also I only just realized what insanely cool style you have... you mix everything up so well. Nice one (:

Kay said...

I know how lame it is commenting on the same post twice but I had two things to say:
1. My friend has just told me she is going to Paris next week, and she is going to buy me an I heart Paris tee. Kerching.
2. Jodi Picoult! I read Nineteen Minutes (at least I think that is the name... it was a while ago) and it was dead good.

Winnie said...
