I could not have been happier than to spend my eighteenth birthday in my favorite city in the world, New York. Being in New York always revives my senses and gives me a feeling of direction. I can't wait until the day I call it my home. Mom, Court, and I arrived very early in the city, and quickly found a little breakfast joint where we devoured some of the best french toast I have ever had. But the most exciting of all is the birthday treat for myself... A Mulberry Alexa of my own! I have for so long loved this bag, and wanted to one day call it my own. Luckily, now, I can! It's so beautiful. From the leather, to the hardware, it's perfection through and through. I couldn't be happier with it. Mulberry gave me a gift of a magazine and yummy, British flag cookie for my purchase. The unexpectedly pleasant chill in the air had me searching the city for some tights, which I soon luckily found. For my birthday dinner, we ate a wonderful meal at such a quaint and cozy restaurant called Bistro Les Amis on Spring Street in SoHo. Instead of birthday cake, I celebrated with their incredible crème brûlée, which was made to perfection. I can honestly say I had one of the best birthdays I have ever had, spent in the city I love.
