New York City Trip-Part 2
I know it has been a few days since I posted ⋅part 1⋅ but finally here is ⋅part 2⋅ and I’m so excited about this.
Saturday was a fun filled day walking around New York City with my husband. After The Survivor Tree, we made our way to Birchbox. I have been subscribed to Birchbox for the last 6 years and it is the only beauty subscription I have. For $10 a month you get 5 samples from anywhere to shampoo to lipstick, from lotion to face wipes, the option are endless and I always get excited for my box to arrive so I knew when we were in NYC we had to check out the store so we could build our own Birchbox. When you first walk into Birchbox it is literally a girls dream. We made our way downstairs to the men section for my husband to build his box.
I did a very small interview with my husband on the products he picked and why he picked them. I asked my husband an overall question-Why did you decide to go with this product?
- Harry’s Razor-sleek design and package, 5 blades, replacement blades available, its heavy but gives the feeling of good quality.
- Ernest Supplies-spearmint flavor with aloe. Aloe protects the lips from getting chapped or dry
- Das Boom-smells amazing and suppose to help shorten shower time, who wouldn’t want something to help them shorten their shower time when in a hurry.
- Anchors Aweigh Hair Co-he went with the matte finish, smells good and will wash out easily in the shower.
- Eau Profonde Thirdman-it smells fantastic, citrus and amber notes and would buy full size bottle (NOTE: I have linked the full size bottle, my husband only picked out a sample when we were at Birchbox)
After Birchbox we wanted to get some drinks and some food so I googled bars near us and Blind Tiger seemed interesting, I mean after all they were apparently named bar for the best bar food and we love some bar food. The bar was literally packed, people could barely move so we knew it was a well known place and the food had to be good. They had a nice little fire going and we finally got a table and as we were waiting for our food we looked outside and it started snowing. The week leading up to the NYC trip I made sure to keep an eye on the weather because I can deal with the cold but the wind and snow NO THANK YOU, it is not my thing.
We finally finished our food and made our way outside to everything turning white. We got a taxi and made our way back to the hotel, walking around NYC is very tiring. We got dropped off like 2 blocks from the hotel which for some reason didn’t bother me this time, I mean after all I did have my husband with me. We got out right near the World Trade Center Memorial as we were walking to our hotel we just took it all in. The SNOW, the people, the honking, just the busiest of the city-we took it all in and we were happy.
Sunday arrived, our day to depart, The City That Never Sleeps. We were both determined to get in Sunday Brunch. I mean after all we were in NYC so why not brunch it up while there. When we first woke up we took some time to find the perfect place for our so called ‘last meal’. We finally agreed on Clinton St. Baking Company & Restaurant
My husband and I have had brunch before and from multiple places, I mean we use to live in Florida so we know how to brunch. This place is hands down the best place we have been so far. ♥
Drinks-2 Mimosas-I love me some champagne. My husband also got a Lime Squash. It was good but I am not a fan of pulp.
Brunch-husband got the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon
I literally got the most incredible biscuit breakfast sandwich EVERRR. I know everyone is gonna say but it is just a breakfast sandwich but I AM the pickiest eater ever. I don’t like mixing my food together, I am a texture person but this sandwich literally made me open my eyes to trying new things.
and without farther ado I present to you the Buttermilk Biscuit Sandwich. A combination of scrambled eggs, melted cheese, bacon and with there house made tomato jam. I was nervous about the tomato jam so I asked without it but they brought the jam in a little dish for a side and OMGGG it was the most delicious jam ever and I’m not the one for jam. That picture does not do justice for how amazing this was. With the biscuit so fresh it crumbled apart and the taste of everything mixed together with the jam I literally was in heaven.
If ever in NYC please go visit this bakery and you won’t regret it.
and last but not least DESSERT–we got a slice of the Black & White Layer Cake ♦ deep dark chocolate ganache filling, vanilla frosting and dark chocolate glaze
I feel like we really took in the city and everything it has to offer and we can’t wait to go back this summer to explore more.
