Because I said so

You didn’t think that was going to stop me from going to NYC now did you? I didn’t think so.

You guys! I’m going to New York. I’m going to Blogher. I’m sponsoring myself. I’m going to eat oversized pizza and hot dogs. I’m going to have a coffee in a diner hopefully with a piece of pie. I’m going to walk in Central Park. I’m going to walk through MOMA by myself. I’m going to meet some American blogger’s that I became friends with over 5 years ago in the FLESH. I’m about to realise a lifelong dream.

And I just about can’t wait.

  34. Good on you for following dreams.. there is never a reason not to try x

  36. Double thumbs up to realising a lifelong dream – think of the amazing photos you’ll be able to take while you’re there, not to mention the amazing people you’ll meet!

  37. I luff NY. I went there alone too. Travelling alone is fabulous. Go to Rizzoli and Henri Bendels for me x

  38. Two words. SHAKE SHACK. Get yourself there lady, order everything. Preferably the Madison Square Park one. The line up looks worse than it is. Oh, and also, this fabulous little bistro in the Village. Corner of Grove and Bleecker. Aussie barista, and hands down the best coffee you’ll get in NYC. Also, The Purl Bee in Soho. Get your MOMA tix online, and don’t go when it’s raining. Have a pastrami sub for me. Unbelievably jealous and equally thrilled for you.

  39. You fucking lucky legend you!!!! You better eat a slice for me & a cupcake from Magnolias Bakery!!!

  40. Smart girl. Good for you. This makes me happy. X

  41. DUDE. This is all kinds of awesome! AND I will be in New York at the same time! In fact, we’re flying back to Sydney on the same day! You will have the most amazing time in the world’s most amazing city xxx

  42. You are going to have THE best time!

    Pro tip for MoMA: You are going to LOVE the gift store. You’re going to fall in love with the books especially and freak out at how cheap they are. But then you’ve got to get them home…

    I’ve used their international shipping (both while in the store and online from here) and it was really fast. Totally reasonable shipping charges too, especially if you’re buying gifts for a few people.

    Just don’t forget to treat yourself too!

  43. Excellent! Hope you got the sexy black dress and it’s getting packed….

  44. When I read this post earlier today – I got a bit teary! So excited for you πŸ™‚ you arrive in NYC the day I do.
    I love that you’re making your dreams reality.

  45. Good on you Beth – love people fulfilling their dreams. You’re gonna have a blast over there πŸ™‚

  46. Brilliant!! YOU GO GIRL! xo

  47. I cannot wait to see New York through Baby Mac’s eyes and 0000’s of photos! Bring it! so freaking jealous

  48. Beth, I can’t wait to see all the gorgeous photos you’ll be taking in the Big Apple. Have an absolutely fabulous time! xx

  49. Yahooooo!!!! NYC is so fricken amazing! I went there last year….solo parent style, with my 3 yr old & 30weeks pregnant. It was so bloody worth it. YOU WILL LURVE THAT PLACE!!!!!!!
    Good on you Beth.

  50. Happy so happy to see that ticket! Enjoy!!

  51. Oh whoopie! You’re off! That is wonderful to read lady. Can’t wait to read those NYC posts… I know you’ll take us there with you through them xo
