No time for dreaming..

Okey so I’ve been super duper busy the past week, so haven’t had any time what so ever to dream away on the internet.. But now I’m almost on top of everything so I’m ready to join my little dream universe again 🙂 Well as previously told, I’m doing my “internship” (don’t know what it’s called in english) now – I started last monday and then it will be 6 more weeks before I’m done. I have to “work”  for 7 weeks as part of my education, and there is SOOOO much planning and preparation to do, so thats why I haven’t been able to spend time on my blog….
Well anyways – I finally found a hotel in NYC … So happy….  Cause now I can finally start planning my trip.. The hotel we booked looks SO cosy and it has great reviews so I’m super exited to see if it lives up to the great reviews. This is the hotel…

Cosy right..? And the location is perfect I think.. Last time we went to NYC we stayed at this hotel …

It was SO cosy and also had a great location – there was absolutely nothing to complaint about, friendly staff – clean rooms – excellent service throughout our stay, however I think it’s a little pricy which is why we’ve chose another hotel this time… I’d rather spend money on shopping than a hotel, after all we just have to sleep there, so it’s not like we’ll be spending a lot of time at the hotel itself.

My main goal of the trip is obviously shopping (hope to buy all my christmas presents here) – and since we’re there at Black Friday I really need to scope out the good offers, and sales before going.. However the sales haven’t been released yet so I’m patiently waiting for them to be released so I really can make my itinerary for the trip. I have already been on Macys website – making a wish list so I know exactly which department to go to first and which items I want – these are some of the items I hope to get at a good price ..

And how cute is that pj from Paul Frank, My oldest daughter would look so awesome in that.. 🙂 And that red and black striped knitted dress from Ralph Lauren would be perfect for christmas eve, and it even comes in both my daughters size so they could wear the same for christmas – PERFECT 🙂 My youngest daughter has always love school uniforms, and you simply can’t get that in my country – and what did I find on Macys website..? Schooluniforms…. Perfect, so I defiantly have to buy one of those for my daughter – it’s just to play in but still it’s a funny little thing that none of her friends has – and something you can only get over here so it makes for a perfect gift for christmas… I was thinking of this one, how cute is that..

She would absolutely LOVE it so I hope to get this on sale as well…. Another thing that’s cheaper in the states is Nike… I do a lot of sports and I absolutely love Nike.. Especially their Nike Free’s, they are the most soft and amazing shoes I’ve had so I really need to get me some new ones while I’m over there.. These are some of the Nike items I hope to find on sale on black friday…

You gotta love Nike – and you gotta love Macys….. Cant wait – just hope that I can get some of the items, and that it isn’t sold out by the time I get there… I know that it can get kinda crazy on Black Friday… So I hope hope hope….

If only I had tons of money – then I wouldn’t have to spend all this time planing to the smallest detail which store to go to and making list after list of comparing prizes etc. I wonder what it would feel like to be able to just walk in to a store and be able to buy what ever I wanted without even looking at the price tag.. Do rich people even think about the price…? Well well fortunately dreaming is free, and thats what I’m gonna keep doing… Who knows maybe one day it will actually be my turn to be rich, don’t know how.. but maybe one day it will just happen…. 🙂 🙂 Until then – I’ll do some more research so I’m sure to get the best sales and deals on my trip to NYC…… Only 24 days left…… 24 days…..

 

New York, New York, New York, New York

Alright so I’m going crazy trying to find the perfect hotel for my trip… It’s sooo difficult, I mean what area is best ? My main purpose of the trip is definatly shopping..! And since we’re gonna be there for black friday, I want to get the most of the offers, and sales so I can get most of my christmas shopping over with. And we’re only gonna be there from thursday november 27th till sunday 30th, so you see I have to make the most of my short stay.. Therefor it’s crucial that our hotel is located in short distance to the top shopping destinations.. But I have yet to figure out where I find the best shopping….??? Well I know that I wanna go to these stores :

Macys, Bloomingdales, Saks fifth avenue, Bergdorf and Goodman, Tiffany and company..

So which area would be best to live in if these are the stores I’m gonna spend a lot of time..?

And after watching Keeping up with the kardashians I just have to see this:

But where else do I go for good offers..? Last time I went to new york we also went to Century 21, which I also really liked however I found it a little difficult to find my way around, and ended up spending way to much time in there just trying to find things. So not sure that I wanna go there again, but where else do I find good bargains..?? I wish I had my own private New York guide that could tell me where to go, and how to find the best offers – OR just having endless money so I wouldn’t have to spend so much time looking for good offers now that I only have 4 days in my dream country… Well well… I’ll just have to keep researching the internet like a mad person and hope that I somehow figure it all out..!! If someone reading this has some good tips, please please leave a comment with your great advise 🙂

While I’m over there I definitely also wanna do some sightseeing.. Last time I went we didn’t get to go to empire state building, cause the line was soooo long so we ended up going to top of the rock instead, which was great nut this time I without a doubt wanna go to Empire State Building.. Last time I went, we also went to see The Statue of Liberty, so I’m not sure we’re gonna do that this time.. But we will definitely go see the new tower of ????? … When we went in 2008 there was just a big whole in the ground so I’m so exited to see what it looks like now… Also I wanna see all of Central Park..

Central-Park-in-Fall

I mean how pretty is that… The last time we only got to see a corner of it, and it was sooo beautiful so wanna see a little more… But again, what else do I just have to see..?? New York experts please comment 🙂

Hope to find some New York experts that can give some useful advise, until then I’ll keep researching and keep dreaming about winning the lottery – that would just make everything SOOOO much easier….

If only….

So all thats on my mind these days is my upcoming trip to NYC… I just can’t wait, I’m sooooo exited…. However planning my trip also makes me dream, cause how awesome would it be to have all the money in the world when you’re going to the shopping mekka of the world.. If I was lucky enough to magically get a gizilion dollars on my account this is what I’d do… :
I would start my shopping trip on 5th avenue, here I’d start by visiting Tiffany’s, and since I’m never getting married I would buy my own “engagement” ring.. A big huge rock so heavy, that my arm would hurt just by wearing it ha ha.. I mean who doesn’t love love love diamonds… Here’s a couple of the rings I dream of 🙂 :

IMG_6964 IMG_6963 IMG_6962 IMG_6960 IMG_6959IMG_6956 IMG_6958IMG_6957

Seriousely how amazing are these rings…. I dream to one day own one of those, however I don’t even think that they exist in the country I live ha ha… And I actually already have my own little diamond, and yeah it’s little in your eyes however where I’m from it’s actually quite big, and I am quite satisfied with it… But still what woman doesn’t dream of big diamonds…. Anyway after going to Tiffany’s I would stroll over to Manolo Blahnik and get me some of these babies…

images-101 IMG_6663 images-99 images-100

How awesome are they… After watching Sex and the City a million times this is something I would just have to have, had I had the money 🙂 And then comes the bags… ohh God the bags I would buy if I was rich.. Don’t know what it is but I just have a thing for bags and actually got my very first designer bag in New York in 2008, and ever since then I’ve just Loved bags… So, I would stroll over to Louis Vuitton where my bag hunting would begin, and then I’d move on to Hermes, Chanel, Mulberry, Michael Kors and so on… These are some of the bags I dream of owning…

IMG_6972 IMG_6971 IMG_6970 IMG_6969 IMG_6967 IMG_6968 IMG_6966 IMG_6657 IMG_6658 IMG_6662

However I can’t complaint when it comes to bags cause I already own my fair share of designer bags… But still I dream… All I’ll be able to afford for this trip, if I’m really lucky is this

IMG_6659

Cause now that I have my new iPhone I need to have something to put it in so it doesn’t get broken…. And even though I really really want to go to Tiffany’s and get a big diamond I can defiantly settle for less and hoped to get one of these

IMG_6961          IMG_6955

I thought that I could esally be able to get these but they are actually super expensive, so I’m not sure I’ll be able to afford it, buhuuuu…. But maybe.. Otherwise I guess I could just be a little extra nice to my boyfriend and beg him for it..  Uhh Wait, I know I just have to talk about babies and he’ll definitely give me those things ha ha 🙂 🙂

 I’m just sooooo exited I can’t wait… Just dreaming my days away……..

NEW YORK HERE I COME… WEEEEEEEEEEEEE…….

Alright so I haven’t been so active online these last couple of days as I have been super busy.. I currently have tons of home work or well not exactly homework but I have to prep for my internship and there’s just tons to do. At the same time my daughters are home this week as it’s the fall holliday, so juggling kids and preparation all at once is quite the challenge. I also turned 36 on saturday, yeah 36 OMG I’m OLD, Buhuu… BUT but but, I got the most amazing gifts for my birthday… I got this ring from my parents, It’s not a new ring but my grandmothers whom I lost a little over a month ago. It just means soo much to me, and I’m soooo happy to be able to wear this every single day in her memory.

IMG_6614     I also got this amazing Asics running jacket        IMG_6590

Nike running pants, the new Daisy Perfume from Marc Jacobs, Essie nail polish, 100 dollars

IMG_6615              IMG_6610           IMG_6613

A TRIP TO New York City…. WEEEEEEEEE… I’m so exited, I finally get to go to the states again and I just can’t wait.. I can’t believe how lucky I am to be getting such amazing gifts.. I talked to my boyfriend last week about my dream of having another baby. I made it very clear to him how much I wanted it and how much it would mean to me. He knows how scared I am to miss my opportunity, as I’m not getting any younger and I told him how I didn’t think it was fair for him to be the one to solely decide how our future was gonna be.. You see he doesn’t wanna compromise on anything..! I wanna get married (we’ve been together for 16 years and have 2 kids), I want more children, and I want us to live together (he’s only home 6 days a month -working and living in another country). He doesn’t want any of those things and then thats just the way it is…! So I finally told him how I felt.. well and then he gave me a trip to new york, a jacket, a perfume and an iPhone…..!!!!! hmmmmmmm… Last time I told him I really really wanted a baby, I got a dog…. ha ha ha, I guess I have to talk about babies a little more huh.. Wonder what he’ll buy for me next… Even thought I’m really happy to go to the states I must admit though that I’m also having some quite ambivalent  feelings about all this. You see I now that for the next month or so I have to walk on eggshells as I can’t get him angry or he’ll just cancel the trip. Also I really have to show my gratitude and keep telling him over and over again how lucky I feel and how much I’m looking forward etc. And it’s not that I’m not grateful, cause I really am, It’s just really hard for me to show my gratitude when I know how it’s gonna be once we get over there.. I guess again it’s just the fact that it’s HIS money, and therefor HIS decisions, HE controls what I can buy and what I can’t buy and just having to ask every time I wanna buy something ohhhh thats just soooo hard…. Also I just know how he’ll lecture me on how expensive the trip is for the next year or more and he’ll tell everybody he knows, how he’s spoiled me so that everyone can pad him on his back and tell him what an amazing man he is..

If only I could win the lottery before I go… Cause how awesome would it be to be able to buy what ever I want and not having to ask (beg) him for every single little thing over there.. It’s just not the same as if I had my own money, and I do still have a little pride left… :-/ :-/ BUT I love the states so much so for that little trip I think I’ll pack away my pride and just be happy and grateful that I actually get to go over there…!!!
