NYC: What I Did and Yes, I’m Engaged!

As many of you know, I was on vacation in NYC in December for six days! It was my first time in the city and of course, I immediately fell in love. The buildings, the lights, the people — I was addicted.

For this trip, we stayed at The Kimberly Hotel in Midtown Manhattan. It was a perfect location just a few blocks away from Grand Central Station and Central Park. The Kimberly has a swanky vibe with an elegant European flair. It felt like home away from home for the week.

We visited so many tourist spots in the city, walking about eight miles every day (no joke). Let’s just say I got the full NYC experience! Although it was a little chilly, we broke out our winter coats and got in the mood for the holiday season. I was thrilled we were able to make the trip this time of year because of how the city is decorated. All of the Christmas lights and the elaborate store window displays made the city feel magical.

Oh.. and I got engaged. And, yes, I am still floating! 🙂

Check out everything we did day by day below:

I recently got back from Cat Cay, Bahamas– one of my favorite places in the world! The trip was filled with the best local foods and long afternoons lying on the sandbar. It was hard coming home after six days in paradise, but I’m excited to share my vacation with you guys! So, if you’re planning a summer vacay somewhere tropical here are my looks for inspiration:

Hello, hello!

The Bahamas are a magical place and I am excited that I get to spend the next six days there exploring. Where I’ll be staying is a small, private island called Cat Cay, with only 100 residents. This is a beautiful part of the world and is absolutely gorgeous with lots to see and do by the water. 

If you do have a trip planned for the Bahamas or are thinking about it, I’d say look for lightweight pieces that are versatile and chic! Think gingham, gladiators, linen, flowy dresses, and ruffles! Don’t forget multiple bathing suits and sun protection, like hats!

I literally found so many cute things for my trip and can’t wait to share the pieces with you all! Make sure to follow along on SnapChat (ashley-paul1) and Instagram!
