Black Basics

I’m back after a whirlwind trip to New York. I’m still trying to catch up on sleep and haven’t been feeling too well, but the trip was well worth it! All the walking helped me to tone some muscles, which could not come at a better time since I’m leaving for Florida on Friday. Some of the highlights of my trip include a trip to the most amazing bakery ever: Eleni’s. I suffer from a nut allergy, so the second I discovered this nut-free bakery, I was there. Within a twenty minute period, I had eaten a cupcake and cookie, and went back and bought another cupcake for our walk to Central Park. When you can’t eat anything at regular bakeries, you go a little crazy in a nut-free zone.

Another highlight was obviously shopping. I spent some hard earned money, but got a lot of bang for my buck so I’m feeling pretty proud of myself. I’m bringing most of my new goodies on my Florida trip, so they will be on the blog eventually!

    Every woman needs a little black dress. Glad you had fun in New York. My sister and I definitely understand the rush of getting a great deal. 🙂 My sister got boots at goodwill for $10 which are worth $200+. She is kinda a deal magnet which is why I love shopping with her when I get the chance!

        If you do, visit Central Park and the Botanical Garden. The changing leaves are magical 🙂

    So glad to hear your trip went well! And even more exciting that you found a nut-free bakery. I can’t imagine not being able to eat pastries at a bakery so that is amazing to have had this opportunity. I love this dress and jacket combo – you look great!
