New York!

It has been a pretty long time since I last posted and this has been for a multitude of reasons. First I was ill, I had a horrendus cold/flu/cough/chest problem, which really knocked me out for a little while and as it happened around the time of my birthday, I didn't get much chance to stop and fight it so it lingered around. Secondly, it was my 21st birthday on 1st June, yay!! Lots of celebrating had to be done so I was partying and doing family stuff and being quite ill at the same time. Then, the day after my birthday for my summer holiday I went to New York for 11 nights, which was fantastic and I have only really just got back!

I thought I would do a post on New York, which will hopefully be interesting seeing as though I haven't blogged in a while. I very much intended to be very blog orientated in New York, I had a new camera in tow as well and I wanted to review vegetarian restaurants and ethical boutiques, but I didn't stick to this. I'm just not disciplined enough and when someone puts tasty food in front of me, I eat it before taking photos. So one round up post is unfortunately all I can post! I did love it and I will have to go back soon to document the best veggie and ethical places in New York.

  4. Your pictures of New York look great! I love it there... and was more successful finding veg food there than in other cities. Was it the same for you?

  5. I find it pretty easy to eat Veg in the UK and had no issue whatsoever in New York xx

  6. Your trip looks like so much fun! It looks like you did all the fun touristy stuff (definitely what I'd do too!) Be sure to enter my £100 ASOS giveaway!
