Cue the Macy’s Thanksgiving day floats, and strike up the band. The holiday season is just around the corner, and if you plan on visiting New York City, you may be searching for some fab places and spaces to make your holiday season a bit more festive. While I love escaping the busy city, I’ll admit that I’ve had a blast during our rare holidays spent in NYC. The city comes alive in the fall, and the leaves in Central Park turn every color of the rainbow. The chill in the air is just right, and as much as I’d rather be on a beach, it really is beautiful here. As the holidays approach, the tree is lit in Rockefeller Center, and the city turns into one, glimmering disco ball, as twinkling holiday lights line the street. It really is a site to see. So, if you plan on sipping your pumpkin spiced lattes, here are my holiday sightseeing recommendations for you (make sure to wear your walking boots and your coziest coat). I’ve included traditional touristy spots, as well as some of my favorite non-touristy favorites for you to peruse.
Am I right? Each year, since I’ve lived in New York, we pack our bags for the journey back home for the holidays, however this year, we’ve got something sneaky up our sleeve. Our journey is two fold! Aside from Thanksgiving, and a long weekend with the fam, we’re traveling to a super sneaky, top secret destination for one, giant adventure. We can’t tell you when, we can’t tell you where, but we are beyond excited, and can’t wait to share.
From Thanksgiving on the beach, to a fall themed cruise this year, what could possibly be next? Maybe I just should plan a ski trip styled entirely in swimwear. Each of our trips lately have been so much fun, but challenging to style, with a reverse wardrobe for each.
A million Thanksgivings and I remember each one for different reasons. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday and a special family tradition. It allows me to stop for a few days, breathe and remember why I’m grateful for the moments and the people in my life. My greatest challenge is to live in the present. I’ve written about this many times, and I think I’m learning to do that. It is important to be grateful for what you have and appreciate each second that you’re living. Take time to thank the people who make your life better just by being a part of it. I have many of those people in my life, and I hope you do too.
Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and it always has been. Family is the most important part of my life, and there’s nothing I love more than spending time with them. The holiday is right around the corner and we want to know how you celebrate. What are your favorite traditions? Do you celebrate with family or friends? Are you hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If so, I’ve gathering a few of my favorite serving pieces to make your Thankgiving Day fancy and fabulous. I love these pieces and I hope your guests will too! We have a few, upcoming posts for the holiday so we hope you stay tuned, and celebrate with us. As always Beauties, I’m thankful for your love and support. Wishing you a safe and happy holiday. xx
