I took a little trip to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum on a school psychology trip for class which is definitely my cup of tea. The itself museum was amazing, but it is a little disturbing looking at the remnants up close and personal. I was too young to remember the actual day, but I feel like I grew up learning about even that happened right in my home of New York.
On a nice note, can we just look at the amazing aesthetic of the museum shop above? Everything in the entire memorial is pieced together beautifully. After the museum we headed across the street to Winter Garden at Brookfield Place which is one of my favorite luxury shopping and food centers!
Somehow I ended up at Financier Patisserie for macarons and Sprinkles for cupcakes to bring back home. Everyone needs a cheat day from clean eating, right? My friend and I ended up at Little Muenster for lunch to grab artisan grilled cheeses and the best chocolate shakes (and I know my shakes, trust me).
Even being pressed for time my BFF and I made our way from store to store. One of my teachers even laughed at me for ending up with so many shopping bags. They know me so well! First up, we saw the brand new Michael Kors collection thanks to the sweet sales associate who I instantly bonded with over our love for the shoe collection. After I moved my way to the colorful DVF window where I saw sunnies that I needed to try. I am still in love with them, so I might just cave in and order it. What do you think?
Last but not least I had to make an extremely special stop at the new, one and only, Hermès Parfumerie. The garden theme is just breathtaking and I tested some of the most amazing scents in the library. The clock was ticking and we knew we had to get back to our class to head back to the school, but I could not miss this opportunity and I knew the driver could wait a few more minutes. We finished learning about the collections and testing scents, but I really didn't want to leave because I was so mesmerized. All I know is that I will be back at this flagship store ASAP.
