Bling of the Day 03/31/2010
The picture of me above is from my trip to New York a couple years ago. (taken in Washington Square Park) My best friend and I spent about 5 days in the city that never sleeps (and as we couldn't figure out how to turn down the heat in our crappy hotel room, we really didn't sleep much either) We had an amazing time. We started out every morning at this European style cafe ( I ate cheesecake for breakfast every morning! Soooo delicious!) and then spent everyday walking around the city until we thought our feet would fall off. Among other things we walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, took a horse carriage ride through Central Park, saw a Broadway musical and did a heck of a lot of shopping. Where'd I score the best stuff? The Hells Kitchen Flea Market. The flea market was full of vintage, second hand and antique goodies. One of my finds were these earrings. They remind me of Edwardian style jewelery. I'm not quite sure how old they are. I love them and wear them all the time. Shopping at the flea market is one of my favourite memories from my trip. Everyone was so friendly and one of the vendors even serenaded us with "O Canada" when he found out that's where we were from. I'm sure there's probably some rude New Yorkers, but we were left wondering where the stereotype came from because everyone was so nice to us. If you're in New York, I'd highly recommend checking out the market.
