Wow what a great trip you packed so much in and got a nice haul. We are hoping to go back to New York probably next January but Pre-Christmas looks amazing. The Christmas trees and lights everywhere look so lovely.

Didnt know you could buy Naproxen in the US so thats good to know.

What a small world! Hope you had a great trip! NYE will be fab and it'll still be lit up with the trees etc, best of both worlds!

It was spectacular! Why can't they tour here

Agree, it's the most festive experience ever!

Thanks
I booked as a package with Virgin who price matched British Airways - worked better for me as I am not a fan of BA and Virgin don't charge as many hidden fees. We paid 530 each from memory, for 3 nights at the Hudson including flights. Cheap and cheerful all things considered given I've paid more than that for flights before!

The flights are out now for those dates next year and are a fab price again,we are waiting for them to release flights for over New Year for next year
Wow that's another steal!

Haha I can't resist a bargain!

Home Alone 2 is one of my favourite Xmas films so I can imagine Ill well up like you did seeing the Christmas tree at the Rockefeller!
Your shopping habits are exactly like mine, I was so jealous of seeing people buy dozens of bargain candles on Candle Day on my Instagram.
Your decorations are lovely, plus Peppermint Bark is my favourite Ghiradelli chocolate! We also collect the different State licence plates, hoping for quite a few more this summer.
Thank you for posting
Oh you must try to get over then! It seems that your goals are similar to mine indeed lol. We are back to the US for a big roadtrip this autumn so I have already started my shopping list lol

Fab trip report..only just seen it!
You really did pack a lot in!
Love all what you bought.
We came back two weeks ago...our fifth time and also went with Virgin for three nights with hotel and it only cost 350 each... the hotel was on 8th Avenue the Row...like yours it was clean and we were out all day.
that's the reason we went as it was such a bargain!..would love to go at Christmas.
Well worth looking at Virgin sales next November again.

Another one of your trippies! Wahoo!

What a fab time you had, really covered so much ground and hit all the main Xmassy highlights too. Love that Mickey statute of liberty decoration!

Candle day... HOW did I not know about this?! Love bath and body works ones so much. I think you were very restrained really! X

Yes well we knew we had only 4 days so had to do that. It was worth it though, we had an amazing time and will definitely be back again some day to uncover more secrets!

You can really get those bargains if you look for them! We want to do Boston and Washington next so I am on the hunt for deals too!

Haha Candle Day was a definite highlight, and burning them now makes me so happy! I would agree that I was restrained lol
It was an amazing few days, we were so glad to have got the chance!
