the big apple: 21st birthday celebrations and mini haul

I've been majorly slacking on the blogging front recently, in fact I haven't posted for 4 months because everything has been a bit crazy! But anyway, I'm back on the scene for the moment and I wanted to share my completely crazy and amazing trip to New York. I turned 21 last month and as it was the big 2.1 and all that jazz I decided there wasn't really a better way to celebrate than being completely outrageous and going to New York for 5 days. 

Most of the time was spent shopping and partying, but we still managed to fit in some 'touristy' things too! Considering we were only there for 5 days we managed to fit in a hell of a lot including: a Knicks game at Madison Square Garden, Lion King on Broadway (UH-MAZING and made me cry within the first 5 minutes), an amazing Thai restaurant in Brooklyn, Jay Z's sports bar, a rooftop bar with a view of the empire state on my actual birthday, and meeting Beyonce's stylist in Louis Vuitton - yes you read that right! Oh, and a Barney's sample sale! And of course, the mandatory visiting America breakfast of waffles with maple syrup and bacon, not to mention the daily (sometimes twice daily) visit to Starbucks. 

Anyway, I thought I would share with you some of my latest additions as I did go a littttle bit wild. I mainly got cosmetics, I can't believe how cheap Origins and Clinique is in the states?! I got some bits from Victoria's Secret, some disco and riding pants in American Apparel and some Nike free run indoor training shoes (comfiest things ever!!) I also managed to get my little brother a Marc Jacobs iPad case in the Barneys sample sale! And not forgetting my Michael Kors purse which I love!
God Created the Woman Eyeshadow and Orgasm Illuminator

I was so happy that I came across this Caudalie set in Sephora, it retails at $35, with a $75 dollar value. Bargaaain! These are all products which I've wanted to try and I can safely say the exfoliator is one of the best things I've ever come across! 

How cute is this miniature Flowerbomb?! 

Spent a small fortune in MAC...
This Thai restaurant in Brooklyn called 'Sea' was just so pretty and the cocktails and food were so cheap!

And finally, what I wore... 
Anyway that's enough, complete photo overload! Feel free to ask me any questions you have about New York, I'd be happy to answer!
