A couple weeks ago, my husband and I headed to New York City as part of a business trip through my husband’s employer. NYC is a little over three hours from our home so we left early one morning and were in the city by noon-time. It was an all expense paid trip which was even better! We stayed at the Trump Plaza in SOHO which is a neighborhood in lower Manhattan and is known for upscale trendy boutiques, brick roads and walkways as well as a slew of chain outlet stores. It’s a wonderful place to shop!

The rooms are gorgeous and have fabulous views of Manhattan. I pulled these two images off the Trump Collection site as my images I took with my phone, didn’t do the room justice.

The day we arrived was rainy and overcast but that didn’t stop us from enjoying a delicious lunch at the Aqua Grill next door to the Trump Plaza.

My husband mostly enjoyed the people watching aspect. The hustle and bustle of New York City is one you must experience at least one time in your life. We are fortunate to be close enough that a one night stay is doable and I must say, I don’t think I could live in city but it’s so fun to visit a couple times a year.

The next morning we were served a breakfast at the Le Train Blue restaurant at Bloomingdales on 6th ave followed by a complimentary shopping experience with our own personal shopper.

The dining experience on the roof top in the train is worth trying. So much fun!

As a special bonus for my husband, he was given a gift card so we could purchase a few fun items. Yay! Our personal shopper was Lynnette who was fantastic! It was so much fun having someone pull the latest trends in your personal size and literally dress you! ha.

Unfortunately, traffic in New York City  is a total drag so it took us almost 6 hours to get home. Note to self, get out of the city by 11am if leaving on a Friday to head back to Boston ;).
