6 July 2010

The last-but-one week has just been a whirlwind; I finished my internship, said goodbyes to friends and have temporarily turned into a tourist, meaning that I've not been home a lot and have been eating a lot of Mexican food.  I have a list of things to cover before I leave, presents to buy for various family members and a serious packing mission should I choose to accept it.  With 8 days to go, here is a mish-mash of photos from the penultimate week in NYC.

Went back to Met and saw the amazing Bambu sculpture on the roof.  People were actually walking around the upper levels as part of a guided tour.

Also managed to get the courage to snap this outfit at the American Woman exhibition (the mojitos on the rooftop bar certainly helped); I really love the embroidery of the lady playing tennis

The last two pairs of new shoes, bringing the total to 8

Random plaques near the library

Gotta love the views from the rooftops

Williamsburg graffiti

The Marc Jacobs spree includes a new tin for all my knitting paraphernalia for final year

The Intrepid was a source of unexptected inspiration

Went a bit crazy at the huge Forever 21 in Times Square; I'm lucky it only opened now otherwise my luggage situation could have been a lot worse.  Wish I could've picked up those paper sculptures...

My view of the spectacular July 4th Fireworks

Being chased by waves at Rockaway Beach; doesn't quite compare with Jamaica, but still fun nonetheless

  1. really cannot believe your internships over! doesnt seem like 2 minutes

  2. Aww I am sad to read that your time is over but it's clear from the very beginning that you absolutely adored your time there and these last photos are amazing. I love NY and I only stayed a week, I can't imagine how you're feeling having to depart after 6mths! How time has flown!

    Enjoy your last week and then we can catch up when you back in town and in the same time zone!

  3. Aww I love that rooftop jumping photo of you. You should print and frame that :)

  4. Aw, I love hearing about your experiences in America. And yes Forever21 increases my wardrobe greatly every time, and so much cheaper than topshop!

  5. dvrling where are those wedges from?? and omg i would totally want to steal those paper flowers too!!


  6. How sad... I have also had to say bye to my work friends and university friends who I have lived with for the past 2 years as I am going to italy for a year and they will all have finished uni when I return! I know its not as bad as leaving people in NYC! Great images love the one with the state building in the background! Jealous of that one!!

  9. Oooow only a week left darling? Make the most of every second! Can't wait to hear about your contemplation upon return, I bet you're excited to see your family, though perhaps not to get back to the British weater/congestion/general shite haha
