We visited the Big Apple! Check out our 3 favorite things we did while on our trip to New York.


If you’re ever visiting New York and plan to shop, you’ll want to stop by SoHo, which is considered THE place to go for shopping in New York City. The stores around SoHo range from upscale boutiques like Stella McCartney, Louis Vuitton, and Prada, to your everyday chain stores: Uniqlo, American Eagle, Topshop, and many more. We shopped for a few hours and were able to find tons of inspiration for future outfits. We also made sure to soak in the views and all SoHo has to offer.


Sigh, do we miss Max Brenner. This restaurant has a bunch of food options, but what we really went there for was the chocolate bar! For food we ate: Cocoa Spiced Waffle Fries, Herb Crusted Salmon, and the Cobb Salad (yum). For dessert, we went all out and tried a bunch of different things: Marshmellow Hot Chocolate, Chocolate Lava Cake, and the Chocolate Injection. All of the desserts were SO good! We so wish we lived close to a Max Brenner, because we’d be there in a New York minute!


On our last day in New York City, we were incredibly tired and really needed a sugar fix. We discovered a bakery called Baked by Melissa, and read that they bake mini cupcakes fresh daily! We immediately rushed over to the bakery and ordered 25 mini cupcakes in flavors like cookie dough, Christmas cookie, hot cocoa, and triple fudge. Yes, we ate them all, and, no, we don’t regret it! 

We love you, New York.
