    It has been a busy few months with very few blog posts to show for it, I believe it is time to change that!

    In January I went to New York to attend the National Retail Federation (NRF) conference but took nearly a week off to wander around and explore, try out the local food and get lost trying to find the fire station from Ghost Busters.

    There was a big downside and that was I visited mid january and so temperatures wern’t particularly warm! Between -5 and -10 average during the day, a far cry from my trip 2 years earlier with 30+ temperatures constantly.

Once unpacked I headed out, not wanting to be frozen trying to visit the Shake Shack I headed around the corner to GoodBurger for my first true American burger.


    HoldingGoodBurgerThat to this day was one of the best burgers I have ever had.

    During my visit I went to lots of iconic places, such as going up to the Top of the Rock, visiting the USS Intrepid, going to Grand Central Station, sitting in the public library…

    Moving on from New York, I have been able to try out a lot more cake. As most people know I have a soft spot for cake, as I believe everyone should have it as part of their lives…

    Bar_Refaeli_CakeAs Bar Refaeli kindly demonstrates, cake should be part of everyones lives.

    So since then there has been birthdays, and many other reasons for cake! Horray for cake.
