Jetlag is a bitch! I need some earplugs - this city is seriously loud!
What's a girl to do on her first day in NY? Shop of course! Me, Sally & Jenni B headed off to 5th Ave for a spot of retail therapy before meeting up with Claire and her friends for brunch at a place called Norma's which is in Le Meridian hotel. The food was amazing - I had waffles piled high with fresh fruit and cream. After spending some serious money during the day (come on - none of my elecrical equipment works here and I can't live without hair straighteners!), we made it back to midtown and dumped the shopping before heading to Chelsea to have dinner at Pete's.
The apartments at The Chelsea are a bit different to The Aurora. They are 2 bedroom so are much bigger and of course 2 people live in them! Pete's roommate arrived today - his name is Andrew and he was from Durban, South Africa. He seemed like a nice guy, and he didn't know anyone else on the secondment so we decided to adopt him as a Brit! We had a chilled night eating pizza and drinking beer before heading home early due to the jetlag!
