Leaving on a jet plane...

It just hit me that this time next week I will be flying my way to New York!

I'm so excited but haven't really thought too much about it. Time to get organised I think!
I will pop up a post in a few days about all the things I am hoping to do.

I seem to have that John Denver's song "Leaving on a jet plane" and of course Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" doing a rotating in my head as my mental sound track this week!

Let me know if there is a "must do or see" for me to add to my list :)

    All I will ask is that you take plenty of fab photos to share with us on your blog when you return. Good luck with all the packing and organisation, that a big trip like this entails xo

  6. I was going to recommend A Cup of Jo too - enjoy! Can't wait to hear all about it.

  7. Oh I am sooo jealous! I just love NY! So many must do's. A few I'd recommend - MOMA, the sculpture garden on the roof of the MET and high tea at Lady Mendl's in Irving Place, Gramercy Park. Have an awesome time :)
