After a good night sleep (though slightly interrupted at 2AM by a fire alarm), we headed back out into the city for a big ol’ breakfast. Based on many of your suggestions, and due to it’s location to the hotel, we hit up the fabulous Sarabeth’s for a fantastic breakfast.

My Mom and I both got the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, coffee, and their juice of the day. It was all amazing. Seriously. I would love to know how they get their pancakes so ‘perfect’.  It was a bit pricey, but I really, really recommend it.

Today (Tuesday), was the night of the blogger conference so we wanted to stick relatively close to the hotel so we could get back late afternoon to get ready for the evening.

Our first stop was Bloomingdales. All I can say is Wow! Clearly it was well out of our price range, but it was so fun to walk through it’s amazingness, and use the bathrooms. How someone can justify paying $200+ for a t-shirt I will never know, but more power to them.

Switching gears a bit we then headed to one of my favorites, H&M. I can say that I’ve been to this particular H&M every time I’ve been to the city. Though, for some reason I really wasn’t in the shopping mood. We are just in-between seasons right now, plus before I do any major fall clothing shopping I want to shed a few pounds. I also think I was feeling a bit nervous about the evening. Really nervous.

My Mom did really well and found a couple great pieces. At least one of us made out.

We found more fabulous window displays.  This one was made of recycled plastic jugs and bottles. So cool!

We also discovered some hidden treasures throughout our journey including this waterfall wall. So beautiful!

It was time for a little afternoon snack. Again, thanks to your suggestions we made our way to Magnolia Bakery. On our way we walled by Radio City Music Hall and NBC Studios.

Then, like a beam of light, there is was … Magnolia Bakery.

If you know me well enough, sweets (especially cupcakes), are my weakness. I wanted to try everything!

I ultimately decided on the red velvet and my Mom got the s’mores. Both were fantastic! I’m so glad we made this part of our trip.

Cupcakes in hand, we rounded the corner and found a bench to enjoy them in Rockefeller Center. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

As we were eating our cupcakes, we noticed an Antropologie across the street. We had just enough time to check it out before heading back to the hotel.

Talk about inspiration! This place was filled to the brim. My photos do it absolutely no justice. There were rabbit heads and deer made of masking tape. There were beautiful chandeliers with dozens of gorgeous tasseling hanging from it.

One of there designers was installing a wall of books. I found this piece of artwork totally amazing; I may even need to recreate it. The lettering was created with wire and then hung on a navy painted canvas. Fantastic!

And the knobs!! Oh my! There was a tower of beautiful knobs and pulls. My brain was spinning. I wanted them all. I also fell in love with these award ribbons made from maps and colored paper. They were clustered in a group and hung from the ceiling. Stunning!

I did find a few special pieces here and will share those with you at some point. After we paid for our goodies we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the event. More on that tomorrow…

    I love NYC! Our son lives in Manhattan and when we go we always go to brunch at Sarabeth’s. It’s great!
    I never thought I would like going so much but we try to go 2 or 3 times a year. It’s nice to have someone that knows their way around to help us get around.
    I love going to NYC again through your blog

    It looks like so much fun. I am glad you had a good time. Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us.

    I’m salivating over those knobs! I need to get to a flea market and look for some for the “coat tree” in my new front hall.
