Travel Essentials: Summer in New York


I’ve been waiting for this day to come around for ages! Now looming closer, I am just overtaken by excitement just thinking about the adventures I have planned for my first visit with my other half.

As if a jam packed holiday wasn’t enough, we’ve also decided to do my bridal fittings over there. If any of you are big fans of “Say Yes to the Dress” on the Lifestyle Channel, you’ll know how monumental this is.

With an array of broadway shows, restaurants, museums and shopping trips on the agenda, prepare yourselves for an influx of New York related posts throughout the next coming months.

The NY essentials

For this trip, I’m keeping it simple and sticking to anything that will keep me safe from the heat and make me as comfortable as possible. With so many activities planned, my first priority is definitely convenience.

Comfortable Walking Shoes – New York is known as a walking city so I need to make sure my feet don’t quit on me

Mecca SPF+30 Tinted Moisturiser – This light, non-greasy tinted moisturiser is a must-have for a summer trip. With a hint of sparkle, it’s just enough to get the fresh faced look I need

Books – I know it’s super geeky but I’m a real sucker for marketing and photography books. I’ve had these lasting around for a while so with a 20 odd hours of flying, I think I can manage to finally find some time to read them all

Polaroid + Nikon – New York is going to be great to test out my new baby – the 24-70mm f/2.8 Nikkor lens. I’m giddy just thinking about all the happy snaps

And with that, I’m off. See you guys on the flip side.
