My Favorite Things To Do In New York

Welcome to New York!


I have been to New York twice, and I am visiting the "Big Apple" one more time in two weeks. Based on my previous trips, I have created an itinerary of places and things to do that are a must when visiting New York. If you ever get the chance to visit, do no this out on these things!

1. See a Broadway show

I have attended three Broadway shows in New York. They are truly spectacular, so do not miss the opportunity to see a show. I recommend seeing Annie, The Phantom of the Opera, or Beauty and the Beast.

2. Visit Ground Zero

Although I have never been to Ground Zero, I heard it a must do in New York.

3. See the Rockettes perform

New York is known for their Rockettes, and every year they put on a Christmas Spectacular. It is a show you do not want to miss!

4. Go ice skating at Rockefeller Center Plaza

I have been ice skating once before at Rockefeller Center Plaza. Even though ice skating is not my best sport, it is a fun activity to do!

5. Visit the Christmas tree at Rockerfeller Center

Visiting the Christmas tree is classic! if you are visiting New York during Christmas time!

6. Eat at Ellen's Stardust Diner

I have never been to Ellen's Stardust Diner, but I have heard that it is a fun restaurant to go eat. The waiters and waitresses that work there are trying to make it on Broadway, so wheel you are eating a meal, you have the chance to listen to them sing and dance!

7. Visit The Plaza Hotel

The Plaza is an iconic hotel in New York. I have never gotten to stay there, but I have stopped inside to visit and look around, and it is truly beautiful.

8. Visit FAO Schwarz toy store

If you think Toys R Us is a big toy store, think again. This famous toy store has multiple stories in which children and adults can spend hours in discovering all sorts of fancy toys.

9. Go to the Top of the Rock

The Top of the Rock is an activity that you must do! You have the chance to see all of New York from the top of a skyscraper. Although I am not a fan of heights, it is pretty awesome.

10. Shop in Times Square

Who doesn't love shopping? Shopping in Times Square is a must do, and beats any shopping mall I have been to!

Although there are a million things to do in New York, I hope you will try a few of my favorite's the next time you visit!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
