Victoria'sSecret Flagship in NYC - A Retrospective

 Recently Victoria"s Secret opened a New Flagship store on Fifth Avenue and 52nd Street in NYC.
As you walk around the store there are beautiful costumes from the December 5, 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from Paris. On the 3rd Floor there is the Victoria's Secret - A Retrospective that showcases some of the outrageous fabulous works of art that the VS Models wore. There are Design boards with fabrics and beads and some Swarovski jewels to show you a peak into the designing of the costumes. Along the stairwell there are pictures of the models and background voices of them complimenting and talking to each other and describing their costumes.  There is also a Photo Booth that will take your picture by a tiny costume and Wings! (No I did not do it as the camera was broken) hahaaha..... If your phone needs charging make sure you stop down in the basement to the "phone chargers" in The Pink Section.

I love being a Tourist in My Own City and sharing with you all. Enjoy xoox

Tiffany & Co. Christmas in NYC December 2, 2016

 On the 2nd Day of December we step into the UNICEF Snowflake Portal into New York City Christmas Magic and where better to slide out to but Tiffany & Co. Tiffany's facade is decorated with lighted jewels that line the store from top to bottom from 57th Street to Fifth Avenue side. Note: Tiffany's is opened and easy still to get in side and shop. You can either go through the Fifth Avenue entrance but enter on the corner of 57th Street or enter on 57th side of the building.

The windows are filled with real diamonds, jewels and pearls nestled between the New York Landmarks window displays.

December 1 UNICEF Snowflake NYC

On the First Day of December 2016 I thought I would start my post with the Beautiful UNICEF Snowflake. To me the Snowflake symbolizes light of hope and it is the portal to the Holiday Extravaganza of New York City.

The UNICEF Snowflake is made from 16,000 Baccarat Crystals, 3,300pounds and 28 feet tall. It Hangs Majestically on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street in New York City. This is a symbol of hope that one day zero children die from preventable causes.

Korea Town New York City

Hi Friends. I am going to take you on a little tour of Korea Town in New York City. Korea Town is located on 32nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues. There are roughly 100 businesses located here. What is fascinating is that even though it is a small street and you wonder where would they fit 100 businesses you look up and smile. Yes they just have businesses all the way up in various floors. One thing I noticed was there are lots of Karaoke Lounges. Seems like a really fun group to me. I enjoyed exploring and trying different things and I hope that you get to visit and love it just as much as I do. 

These dumplings "pocket buns" were huge and filled with different flavors and meats and also had a sweet potato one that was my favorite.
These little fish shaped cakes taste like mini pancakes, some are filled some are plain. I like the plain the best.

Animal shaped face Masks

Love the cute packaging

Korean Bakery Tous les Jours

beautiful cakes

Pink Ice Pops

I love this store with cute packaging of their cosmetics

Hair Mask so cute works great

Paris Baguette Bakery is the equivalent to our Starbucks. Packaging and the sandwiches and pastries they sell is just so adorable and tasty also.
