What I Bought in New York City Haul
Happy Friday! Today I’m finally sharing what I bought in New York City haul! I mean it’s 4 months late but better late than never. I had this planned for a while but never got around to it. Since I started spring cleaning my apartment the other day, I found the motivation to finally take pictures of everything when I opened my suitcase and reminisced about my trip. It brought back so many memories of my trip seeing everything I bought. So without a long intro here is what I bought in New York City haul!
I bought quite a few things in new York. My suitcase was actually overweight but the guy at the counter allowed me to go and I didn’t have to pay a few. It was so nice but it was the holidays after all. I really had a full suitcase and it took a while for me to close it. It doesn’t seem like a lot but I had a lot of clothes as well and coats and sweaters too so it took a lot of space. If you’d like you can read my travel and photo diary of my New York trip here.
I think this was first store I visited. I stumbled upon it and there was a huge sale so it was buy three get three free so I bought a few things. I love the NYC hoodie I bought and it is so cute. I bought a few bras, a pink fluffy robe and some Christmas pajamas with slippers to be nice and comfy. Also I got that puppy for free as I bought a lot of stuff.
Key Chains & Magnets
It’s my tradition to buy a key chain of the place I visit and then in 2017 I started buying magnets of the places I visit too so I bought this apple with the cityscape. I love the key chains I choose and they are so cool. Since it was December I bought an ornament as well. The Empire State Building was right outside my hotel and everyday I would walk outside and see it so I got one to remember that. Last I got my name necklace and there is a cute story behind it which you should watch in my Youtube video.
T – Shirts
Of course you can’t go without buying a I Heart NY t-shirt. I bought a few for my family members and I will send that to them in a few months. Then I got my mom and I matching colored shirts we could wear together. Mine is sparkly with diamonds and hers is just the regular one. I then bought my dad a kitchen towel as he loves them and it is so cool.
I put this post off as I was waiting for a package that was a gift bag but it never came so I decided to do it anyway. I saved the playbill, the ticket and the sippy cups I drank out of when I watched the show. I even bought the sparkly boot ornament too.
It was like fate that there was a Pandora right next to the hotel. I was thinking about it and was going to search for one but I stumbled upon it and knew it was a sign. So I went on their online store and did some research on which charm to add to my bracelet. Once I saw this passport I knew it was the right one for me as it represented my 2018. Then I saw this ring on display and I always wanted it so I treated myself and bought it to remind me of the trip and a Christmas present to myself.
I saved the best for last. I think this is by far the best thing I bought in New York. My teddy bear I got at one of the souvenir shops near my hotel I stayed at. His name is Charlie Ted-Ted York. I named him Charlie after the main character in Kinky Boots, Ted-Ted is his middle name and what I call him frequently and instead of having his last name be New York I shortened it to York. Yes he has a full name and I like it. He’s actually sitting next to me as I write this blog post. I love him so much and he was worth the money. Here is a link if you want to buy one for yourself.
That’s what I bought in New York City haul! I filmed a haul video as well on my channel if you want to watch it and see everything and some stories I tell about each item. I’m so glad I finally got this up and I could share with you. I’d love to know what you buy when you travel and if you have any traditions like I do. So that is what I bought in New York City haul!
I’d love to visit New York one day, it seems beautiful. I’m glad you had fun and enjoyed your stay.
Lovely picks.The teddy bear is so cute.
