That morning, I got to meet up and chat with with Carly from The College Prepster over coffee. Carly was one of the bloggers who inspired me to start my own blog almost three years ago, so it was so nice to meet her in person! It was great to get to know her a little bit better and chat about the blogging industry as well as what’s it’s like to live in New York.
Next, Mary and I headed to Rockefeller Center and got to catch a glimpse of the ice rink and the famous golden Prometheus statue. If we’d had more time I would have wanted to skate, so that’s on my NYC bucket list for future trips!
Our final stop before heading to tea at The Plaza was Saks where Mary and I fell in love with the Viktor & Rolf Bon Bon displays. So many bows!!!
Before leaving The Plaza and running back to our hotel to grab our bags and catch our flight I had to snap a quick picture with the original Eloise portrait by Hilary Knight. It was so cool to visit the primary location of one of my favorite childhood stories. Eloise is still a favorite of mine to this day and I plan to read the books to my children some day down the road as well.
That evening we headed back home to Chicago!
So, that was my final Bowtiful NYC recap! I hope you all enjoyed reading these posts as much as I enjoyed writing them! I still have some video footage from my trip, so hopefully I’ll have some down-time sometime soon to throw that together and post it on my YouTube channel. Thanks for reading!
