New York

My romantic boyfriend is taking me on a trip to New York, for my 30th Birthday next week!
How perfect is that! Yes, I know, I am a lucky bitch.

“They say life's what happens when you're busy making other plans. But sometimes in New York, life is what happens when you're waiting for a table.” Carrie Bradshaw

I decided not to wait for a table and reserved here, at Asia De Cuba at the Morgans Hotel.

Last week I was watching the 340th re-play of Sex and the City in the fitness, while looking anything but fabulous like Carrie, who was drinking cocktails in this restaurant while waiting on the Russian, who didn't come of course. And I thought, We cannot go to NYC and not step in the manolo blahniks of Carrie Bradshaw for at least 2 hours. So, reservation made, but outfit still an issue. Being cool in Belgium is absolutely not the same as being trendy in NYC.I still have some days to think about it...

It's better to be prepared: The days are long there and the nights are too. Here some tips to make your purse NY-proof with these 6 obligatory items

Bottle of water***a photo camera***lipstick***underground card***d├ęsinfectant (because of the underground)***Sunglasses (for the instant New York Glamour look)

Oooh, I forgot the most important one:

This is the second time I am going there, and the first time was a bit of a disaster for my poor card, she was so bloody tired.

We have bought a NYC Pass to visit the most important attractions without waiting for hours to get in and I am really looking forward stand on the top of the Empire State Building and kiss the man I love (while pretending we are alone there, hihi)

Other cool and way too expensive things are to be found in this beautiful book

Well, I like all books from Taschen, but this one has great hotspots, shops, hotels & restaurants. It is also a nice asset to my library.

Ok, enough fabulousness, I wouldn't be Lisa if I wouldn't go for some serious 'oh baby, I don't think I can get up anymore' emotions, and I am planning to get this emotion after eating this:

The Reuben at Carnegies Deli :)

And then straight to our hotel on Times Square to digest!

I don't think we will get bored in this great city!

They say Life starts at 30, I think this will be a very nice start of life! Thank you, baby
