What Goes Around Comes Around

Dominique Ansel Bakery



Sadly, even after two attempts of trying to wake up early enough to get in line for one of the famous Dominique Ansel Cronuts, we did not get to the bakery in time. The bakery usually opens at 9AM, but both locals and tourists alike, wake up before the sun is up to get in line for the chance at buying a cronut! This photo of the cronut on a postcard inside Dominique Ansel Bakery is as close as we got to a cronut during our trip.




Honestly one of the most beautiful Hot Chocolates I’ve ever had! The marshmallow lotus flower in the middle of the cup was placed after the Hot Chocolate is poured so that the heat slowly opens the marshmallow. It’s a slow motion lotus bloom right in front of your eyes.



I almost could not contain my excitement as Gabe and I slowly approached The Plaza Hotel. It has been a dream of mine to see this beautiful property in person for as long as I can remember and it did not disappoint one bit. I was hoping to be able to have high tea at The Palm Court inside the Plaza, however, there was just so much on our agenda already, that I kept on putting it off. I decided I was going to be happy enough to be able to just enjoy the beauty of the hotel from the outside. There will always be a next time for us!



Thank you, Gabe, for always being a gentleman and helping me with unnecessary tasks such as holding my very gold purse in plain sight. You’re a real trooper, and I Love You.
