A Day In New York City

Hi Guys!
I've been meaning to share a few snaps with you from my trip to NYC last month. All photos were taken with my Iphone 6S so, bare with the quality. This is more like a diary of photos rather that my usual blog posts.
I was so lucky to be able to have one of my best friend and her partner as our personal tour guides. They were amazing. We started off right about the Empire State Building and made our way to West Village. She knows the city so well and knows my vibe too that, our first stop was at 64 Perry Street (Hi Carrie Bradshaw), the house of Carrie Bradshaw (Played by Sarah Jessica Parker) in Sex & The City.It definitely lived up to my expectation.  
From there were strolled along the area and stopped at Dyptique Store to buy some candles. My sister introduced me to Dyptique two years ago and I must say their candles are worth every penny. The store's décor was enchanting and decorated with a lot of detail. I could appreciate that.
We left West Village and head to Soho where we took in the hustle and bustle of people and the amazing architecture of the buildings. I stopped by the landmark of the first Kate Spade store to snap a picture.
By this time we were so cold we stopped by this awesome coffee shop, Gasoline Alley Coffee. This is probably the second best cup of coffee I'd ever had, next to a Macadamia nut latte I had in Maui (on the Road to Hana).  
We then made our way to the Gansevoort Hotel and had drinks and great conversations in their rooftop lounge. While there, we caught a great glimpse of the Empire State Building, lit up with Christmas colors. I also happened to snapped the view of the bay. It was spectacular.
We left the Gansevoort to walk along The Highline. What's cool is that it was a train line turned into a mini park. We saw it at night and it was amazing. I can only imagine during the day it's just as lovely.
After trotting the Highline, it was time to eat. We were treated to an amazing dinner at the Buddakan NYC. Can I just relive the savory food they served for a minute? It was so yummy and the service was exceptional. The Buddakan has amazing gaudy décor, elaborated ceilings and beautiful walls. The chandeliers in the main room (at least that's what I'm calling it) were of a century past. It's an experience.
Not only was the service great, the food was too. We had Beef, shrimp, seafood fried rice, desert, wine and everything, since I tasted from everyone's plate, was delicious.
I had such a great time exploring with my bestie and to spend some touristy time with my guy in the city.
