It’s safe to say the last couple of weeks have been a bit of a surreal whirlwind in terms of travel (typing this on a turbulent plane from New York to Orlando pretty much sums it up perfectly- but having Mamma Mia on in the background is currently nursing any mild worry). After scheduling and sharing my safari posts, Joe and I hopped on a plane to the Big Apple for a fleeting (and pretty special) dinner with KitchenAid (which you can spot a little more about here and here)- but not before making a little room for a spot of city exploring- what’s 48 hours in New York without racking up the steps after all, right?

With our first afternoon spent largely battling heavy eyes and trying to resist giving in to jet lag (we lasted until about 7pm)- we wandered through Soho from our TriBeCa hotel (an area relatively new to us) for a little bit of shopping (Sephora being pretty much obligatory) and donut pick-ups in the Lower East Side- before heading back to our room for pizza in bed- it’d be rude not to, wouldn’t it? I mean, there’s something relatively rose-tinted about city views and pizza crumbs in the sheets- or perhaps that’s just New York for you…

  3. I'm not sure which I like more--the blouse or those felt flats. Both are great!

    By the way, I’m hosting a blogger linkup on my blog today. I’d love for you to come share a post!

  18. super jealous you're back in NYC :)

    My fave place

    Mel x

    But its not just the houses and accommodation which makes this a fab staycation location, its the grounds that really bring it to life. From a sunken swimming pool in the middle of the wilderness, to tennis courts and bikes you can freely take and use to explore the grounds, to boating on the lake to simply walking and exploring the grounds in your own time. If you're looking for a relaxing break taking you back to nature but with a  little luxe and pampering to boot, then I thoroughly recommend a visit.

    Thank you to Tenderstem for letting me discover such a fab place & for the wonderful staycation.
