I spent the past five days in Manhattan, and I loved every minute of it. There is something so magical about NYC – the constant energy, the people, the pride, and of course the shopping. I went with a university friend who had never been to the city before. We did a bunch of touristy things, but we also explored many areas I had never been before. My favourite place in the city is definitely SoHo. There are so many amazing bakeries, restaurants, shops, and history. We were lucky to spend the majority of a day exploring the borough and taking in all that Soho has to offer. We also went to Chelsea and wandered around the Chelsea market – this is by far my new favourite place. If you head to NYC, be sure to check it out. Sarabeth’s (located in the market) has amazing cookies.
