NYC at Christmas: Traveling for the Holidays

This post was sponsored by Nehemiah Manufacturing Inc.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

I'm very excited about today's post!  I recently had the opportunity to take a long weekend trip to NYC for the first time in years.  And the best part?… It is Christmas time!  That means windows on 5th Ave, Rockefeller Plaza, and the Rockettes!  It's been on my bucket list for years and finally, I am able to cross that one off!  It was absolutely magical and everything I had hoped and more!  I have tons of pictures to share with you, but before we start with that holiday eye candy, let's talk a minute about packing!

Anytime I go somewhere, I always try to make a list of what I want to bring before I start.  This way, I can plan out my outfits with any dinners/ events I have to go too, but it also helps me remember the little things I may normally forget to throw in.  I also love the joy of crossing things off a list, so it's a win-win.

One of the items, that I haven't been caught leaving home without lately is Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus Spray.  If you aren't familiar with the product, it's like magic for those wrinkled up clothes that come straight out of your suitcase.   It's so easy to use, you just spray it on the wrinkles, tug the fabric and Boom! those wrinkles are gone!  A travel size is perfect to tuck into your carry-on and is a must have for any traveler.  The best part is the smell.  It makes your travel-worn clothes smell fresh and clean.

6. Grand Central Station


There is such a beauty in Grand Central Station this time of year.  They also have a holiday market which has unique gift items to browse.

7. Light Show at Tiffany's


This was just amazing.  It happens nightly.  Don't miss it!

Phew!  Lots of pictures, but it was hard to narrow it down.  Any time of year, Soho and Central Park are also on my list of must-sees.

We had a wonderful trip and if you haven't done this trip, I definitely would recommend it!

Did I miss anything in your opinion?

To life feeling like home!
