This Bitch is Back in Town

My six day trip has made me realise that I still love New York, even with the crappy wet and windy weather which is reminiscent of London. It is still a great city with great people and a hella lot of great shops! Hence why, once again, after 2 days me and my fellow traveller Rachy, was broke. No more cash which meant no more shopping. But it was all good because we went on a journey to hit all of the Sneaker hot spots and found them all mwahahahah. On our travels, we went to the NSW store on Mercer Street where one of the dudes asked if I could be their 'Shoe of the Day' on the Nike Blog. Without hesitation, I said HELL YEAH! I just wished I had my Liberty Dunks on rather than these bumble-bee Terminators. Here is one of the pictures below, and the rest of the pictures are here, on the Nike Mercer Street Blog (where they also spelt my name wrong as 'Rachael'):

This is the only decent photograph, I look like a sham in the rest of them! My windbreaker zipped all the way up to prevent the chills, hair looking a mess, one glove on and one off (WTF?!, legs looking like stubs, and not forgetting the temporary safety pin hemming of my dress coming apart....THE SHAMEEE!!! (EDIT: THE PICTURE IS NOW BELOW INCASE YOU GUYS CAN'T BE BOVERED TO CLICK THIS LINK!)


I will do a more in-depth NY post soon, but I just need to filter through the hundreds of photographs! Stay tuned!

PS. Whilst I was away Yvonne from Emy Augutus gave us this:

How friggin' sweet is the illustrations?! Thank you!

The Rules are : 1) Reblog 2) Give cred. 3) Pass it on & let them know

So I will give to

Kara from Hood and Proper, Emma from All in your Innerspace, Kay from Stitched, Rebecca from etonnant blossom and Kay from Purple Lipstick !!

d) You look fine! And I think it is a true testament to your taste in trainers that you were photographed for a blog because of them
e) Thank you again (:
