Guess what lovelies? Remember I said in this post that we were planning a holiday? Well good news everyone! We are heading to the US in a couple of weeks! I’m still pinching myself at the though of it. I’ve been dreaming of visiting New York for years! Thank God for His abundant blessings: the fact that I’m healthy enough to travel long distance even though I’m pregnant, hubby’s work approving of his trip, and my hectic locum schedule having the perfect 3 weeks open.

But this is not just any “babymoon” though. The main purpose of the trip is to demonstrate how to travel in style whilst being pregnant. Many people objected or at least raised their eyebrows when I mentioned about the long flight, travelling in my third trimester, or climbing 5 flights of stairs to reach our Manhattan apartment. But you know me, I’m always up for a challenge. Especially one that involves fashion, flying, and of course, stairs.

Our first stop will be Disneyland. Although I won’t be able to jump on all the rides, but that won’t stop me from being completely childish and crazy (like our time in Hong Kong Disney)… Plus we can tell MiniKee that we brought it to Disneyland when it was really small, hence why it would have no recollection of it…

In New York, can’t wait to catch up with Aussie friends, meet up with US bloggers and my lovely readers, visit designer YeohLee (remember her bright pink outfit I wore here?)‘s boutique, spend days perusing galleries and museums, and of course, immersing ourselves in the stylish shenanigans of fashion week! We are proud to be flying Qantas and I look forward to bringing as many Aussie labels to the States as possible!

So seasoned travellers, what are your top tips/visits/must-sees for New York?

Such nice inspirational street style! :)

Hope you have a ball while travelling and you enjoy NY – my sister is just back from there and I’m very jealous. Need a good trip of my own…..I hope you shop up a storm! :)

aww what did she think? what did she do/recommend? I used to be a shopaholic I’ll try to be more sensible now :D


Mica July 21, 2013 at 8:37 pm

She got something called the “New York pass” which gets you all kinds of free attractions and boat rides and things. She went to so many places and they kept saying “we got free entry with the pass to here too”. So it’s definitely worth it :)

The only real shopping she did was in Tiffany’s, haha. I’m sure you will be responsible and avoid all of the awesome US prices on things…… ;) She went with her boyfriend so they didn’t shop as much as she would have liked, haha.

Aw yay! New York is my favourite place, really hope you enjoy it.
PS. I got the NY pass too and used it for all the museums like MOMA and the MET and observation decks on top of the empire state blg and rockefeller center. There are a few different passes though so look it up :)
Also def go to little italy for food, and walk down Soho and Nolita as well.

my friend told me there is a big m&m store in New York, with tonnes of lollies and all kind of m&m. perhaps drop by and have a look?? and they have a buying limit per visit! I wish I could go, too… Let’s catch up again before you two head off, shall we?
