Yesterday I visited one of my favourite NYC hangouts, Chelsea Market! Its an indoor market with so many yummy food vendors and cute little stores. Back in the day the building was a cookie factory where the Oreo cookie was invented!
Some of my favourite food stores are Elemis Cookies where they sell delicious sugar coated NY themed cookies and the Spices & Tease market where you could find any spice in the world.

I’m obsessed with this sweet little bakery called “The Fat Witch”. Renowned for their Brownies, they sell something which I think is so genius, “Fat Witch Ends”. These are those crispy edges of the brownies that everybody fights for after baking a batch!

Chelsea Market also has its own little flea market called “Artists & Fleas” where you can find creative hand made items that come from New York. I love this one vendor called “Pamela Barsky”. She makes witty and charming pouches that are sure to make you laugh!

One thing that I have wanted to do since arriving in NYC is purchase my own custom designed necklace from “Brooklyn Charm”. Here you get to handpick a chain, beads and charms from a huge selection and watch as they assemble it on the spot. The charms I picked out were an Airplane, a C for my boyfriend Cathal, A New York state charm, a dog for my Henry bear and some cute little colorful accents! So much fun picking it out.

Such a great little place to visit where a lot of tourists don’t even know about! Also I finally met the coolest lady alive, Lena Dunham yesterday after hours of stalking the set of “Girls”.
Successful day all round.
