Hello All! This past weekend I ventured to NYC with my crazy loving family and had a fun filled time. Went to the tourist-y spots such as Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Chinatown, and Little Italy. I also went to Ground Zero for the first time. We didn't get to see the memorial but just being there where everything happened that day was so moving. We ate lunch in Chinatown and stopped at this little park there where a bunch of older Asian men and women were playing chess/checkers. Those games were intense. Then walked to Little Italy to get the famous pizza from Lombardi's. DELISH. I swear I thought I saw Bruno Mars in a car driving by, but then I checked his twitter account and it said that he was in Hawaii. Fail.
As the night went on, the weather turned from a nice brisk breeze to freezing. I felt like I had no body heat, but the beat of the city kept me going. I know my headband does not match my outfit whatsoever, but I really did not care at all because it kept my head and ears warm. I was so glad to go back to the hotel that night and sit in the comfy warm bed eating a late dinner while watching Elf.
The next day we went to a Japanese market called Matsuwa Market in New Jersey along the Hudson and I just gotta say, this place is pretty amazing. Not only was it a Japanese grocery store; there was a food court with legit Japanese food. They also had DIVINE green tea ice cream which I'm in the mood for right now. The whole place was super clean and the people were so nice. If you live in New Jersey, def. check this place out. In one of the pics above you can see that I purchased two face masks, one ginseng and one red wine, a Shseido shampoo and conditioner, and a soymilk based face lotion. The description on the back says its a lotion but has the ingredients and consistency of a toner so I'm assuming it's a toner. I'm still in the process of trying out these products so I'll post a later post on how they are.
So other than the bitter cold, crazy NY drivers honking at you, taking the wrong subway which took us to Brooklyn, getting lost going to the Matsuwa Market but ending up at the BEAUTIFUL Hudson River/NYC skyline overlook (first pictures), I had a pretty swell time with my family.
