hey there

Dreaming of traveling to the most magical place this holiday season but don’t want to get stuck in tourist traps or lost in a snowstorm?

Don’t worry girl, I got you! 

New York during the holiday’s is an absolute dream. Matt and I visited in the middle of November because I was speaking at Penguin Random House’s Holiday House Event (my publisher) and had some business meetings.

Although we were there for work, we had some time to explore and I took notes on a few can’t miss spots.

Whether you go with your girlfriends, family, husband, or even alone, this will be a trip you won’t forget!  


There are plenty of great hotels but this year we stayed in the Warwick New York – a luxury hotel in Midtown Manhattan.

Last year, we stayed at the Ibero Star. It was also nice but the rooms and hallways were really small and it felt kind of crammed.

We loved that the Warwick had much more spacious rooms. Plus, it’s in a great location, has a delicious restaurant on site, spacious bedrooms, and a stunning view.

If you’re not in the mood for room service (which we really enjoyed) you can head over to Joe & the Juice or grab coffee at Tisserie, both are our favorites! 


We have our go to spots in the city so when your stomach is ready for a midday snack here are some options! Angelo’s Coal Oven Pizzeria,

I think it’s obvious what to get from here but I also highly recommend the cannoli. If you’re not feeling Italian you can head to Markato for a gyro to go or some pita bread with hummus.

And if you really need some diversity just go to Bryant Park Urban Market, it’s full of options so this is great if you’re visiting with a large group.


On your last night in the city you should spoil yourself a bit and grab dinner at the Hunt and Fish Club, yes it’s a splurge but it’s definitely worth it!

If you need another option you can also grab a bite at Jam’s. You’ll want to stick around for dessert (it’s SO good) and I really don’t think that will be a problem because the atmosphere makes you want to stay for hours!


If you want to truly feel the magic of the season, grab a hot chocolate and head over to Bryant Park Ice Rink. 

Looking to do some shopping after? Head to the brand new Nordstrom on 5th avenue… it’s SEVEN stories. I got lost in there!

That said, I highly recommend setting aside a couple of hours for this one! 

Oh, and make sure you go see the tree at Rockefeller Center! It wasn’t even lit when we were there and it was still so beautiful!

Alright now it’s your turn!

Pack your bags (and a big winter coat) and head to the Big Apple. Tag me in your adventures and let me know if you have any questions. 😉
