Travel | Planning For A Trip to NYC





New York was always on my bucket list of places to visit, what I can't quite believe is that I've been there twice this year. Once back in June, you can read more about that here, and currently right now!

This current trip is a lot different from the first, one because I'm with my mum and sister and two, I've got more than 24 hours to explore this time. So of course obsessive organisational freak Lola has come out in full force!
This trip basically revolves around two things, FOOD and of course BEAUTY SHOPPING, which are my two true loves in life so of course I want to explore them in one of my favourite cities. Don't worry there is some sightseeing included of course, but mostly Sephora and cakes.

New York is a big overwhelming city, especially if you haven't been before. So I wanted to make sure this trip was stress and fuss free, I'm one of those people who like to know what I'm doing and how to get there. So with that here's a few top tips for planning your big trip to New York City.

Decide What Top Sightseeing Spots You Want To Visit
Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, 9/11 Memorial...the list is endless of sightseeing spots in NYC, so decided what is your top must sees for the length of time you are there. For us this includes The Top of the Rock at The Rockefeller, 9/11 Memorial, Times Square and Statue of Liberty. With that we looked what was around each area to plan each day and what part of the city we would be spending it in.

Find some good restaurants
New York is full of amazing food, so I've spent a lot of time having a look at different places to go. I googled a few blog posts and had a look at some recommendations for breakfast as well as dinners. However do leave some evenings to just go with the flow and see where your feet take you.

Use Google Maps to see what shops are around certain areas
Dying to hit up Sephora or Victoria's Secret? If you know you're going to be visiting a certain spot, type it into google maps and you'll be able to see what shops are nearby. This has been an amazing tool for planning our trip as we've been able to tick off certain shops we all had on our lists to visit.

Other than that just wing it, New York is an amazing city to get lost in. There's always something that will blow you away each corner you turn.

Have you visited New York City? What would be your top must see?
