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!
