Firstly I want to thank the likes of Brides Wars, 27 Dresses, Friends With Benefits, You've Got Mail and other romantic comdies that have made New York City's central park more than just a recreational landmass but a dream. There was a surreal element to this day in the park, one could attribute that to my jet-lag, but I think it was more because I simply couldn't believe that I was finally there.
What better way to start this trip than to take a walk in one of NY's most prized possessions? None.

This song has been on repeat for the past week now, I can't get over it. I don't think I ever will. This is an undeniable jam. Hope you like it!
Its songs like these, and videos like these (Yo!MTV Raps) that cement my belief that I should have been alive and grown during the late eighties. In my heart, I think I would've been an 'In Living Colour' fly girl. But thats just me.
And shout out to the girls and guys behind Tip and Phife, having a good time - we see you.

Firstly, I must emphasise that my recent trip to New York was not a typical 'blogger goes to NY to take cool pictures and have a good time' trip; no this trip was very much academic and I was blessed to be a part of it thanks to Education Africa and Model UN South Africa whom I work for as a Model UN debating tutor.
Despite all the academia, however, there were segments of the trip that compromised of non-academic tendencies i.e. shopping, site seeing, general exploring and it is these photos that I have to share with you. This little 'photo-mentary' is going to come in about five different segments, all named "How to Make it in NY" (no doubt inspired by the kick ass show 'How To Make it in America').
Some pictures are random, some are bad quality, others are amazing, but all give a snippet of this beyond cool eleven day trip.
I plan on making a HTMNY post every Friday, but, you know me, we'll see how that works out!
Here's a sneak peek of what you can expect though:

I bought shoes a few months ago and (like the nerd that I am) I was so excited about them I asked my dear friend and future major-major photographer Dudu Luthuli to take a few snaps, of the shoes though, not my face...the shoes.
These suede saddle shoes are from Mr Price and, forgive me, but I forgot the price but they were definitely under R150 (score!).
I love them because they aren't doing much, they are no theatrics involved here but the minimalism adds to the overall beauty.
I only found out about this store a couple of weeks ago, and round about the time I found out about it I actually found it, quietly placed in the corner of some street in Soho, New York.
I walked in and, literally, all I could do was shake my head because I wanted - well- everything.
