I stayed at the Sheraton hotel and had an amazing view looking on to Times Square. How amazing is the view ?
On Monday morning I woke up and it was like something in my head was telling me to go back to The Row shop, even though they said it was shut till Tuesday. I've always dreamed of meeting Mary-Kate and Ashley, but never thought it was actually happen considering I live in Scotland and they live in New York. I walked back to 71st street and turned the corner and seen quite a few photographers standing outside The Row store and black cars. I thought to myself Mary-Kate and Ashley must be in there, or why would photographers be standing outside.
The photographers were taking photos of this person who went into The Row store. Does anyone know who she is ? It's kind of annoying me, I feel like I've seen her somewhere in a magazine or something.
After about 20 mins waiting I spotted Mary-Kate's husband Oliviler Sarkozy come out. I thought hey I want to ask if I can get a photo with him. I ran after him and said hi can I get my photo with you ? He said am not very good at that thing, sorry. I thought oh ok just accept he doesn't want a photo. Then photographers went and took photos of him. I thought I'll never see him again, so I ran back to him and snapped this photo. He must have thought I was crazy walking away and running back to him, haha.
Then my dream came true, Ashley Olsen stepped out The Row store, Mary-Kate came out after. It still doesn't feel real to think I've seen them. I have been a fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley since I was around 12. Although it would have been better to get a photo with them, but they were protected by their bodyguard.
Who'd expect to see Victoria Beckham in Times Square ? It was just luck seeing Victoria Beckham. After seeing Mary-Kate and Ashley I thought I need to go out and celebrate seeing them and go buy their new perfumes. I came out Sephora on Times Square and Victoria was getting out a black car with her bodyguard. New York fashion week is definitely the time to visit New York to bump into celebrities.
Visiting The Row store is the best thing ever, for every Mary-Kate and Ashley fan.
I was kind of hoping on a bag from The Row that had the brand name on it, to show I'd been. It was a plain white bag.
Pose in Central Park
I've always wanted to visit Mad46 because I read in papers Mary-Kate and Ashley have went there, but every time I've been to New York, it's been January or February and Mad46 is only open April - October. This time we managed to visit, as its open for the season.
Mad46 was so entertaining, with everything Scott and has mate was coming out with. The lift guy goes how did we like it, I goes "first time for me" then he goes where you from ? I said Scotland. Then Scott goes I wish she'd move over here and the lift guy goes work on it and you'll get there haha.
One of Scott's mates kept jumping in the photo haha
I love Swedish fish, but you can't get them in Scotland.
I was up the World Trade Center back in January and it was quite dull, but when you're there for a limited time you have to make use of the time you have. I went back up again this time, when it was a nice clear day. I wouldn't say no to going up on a dull day, it just gives the photo a different effect. I love my photos from last time I went up the World Trade Center, but a clear day means you can see more.
How amazing is the Empire State Building at night ?
Scott wanted to go to some club, but seriously it was the most boring club I've been to in my life. Thankfully he didn't stay long. These are a few random photo's from that night.
Scott, me and a Bulgarian woman we met, I forgot her name.
I tried on Scott's jacket and it went down to my knees, it shows how tall he is. I am pretty much average height 5 feet something.
The High Line.
Sunkist, my favourite drink in the States
One of my favourite things is checking out the makeup section in drugstores, as America always get makeup months before it comes to the UK.
Last night in Times Square
The thing about New York City, you find yourself always looking up with the high buildings.
Trying Chipotle for the first time !!!!!
Leaving New York is always the hardest, it's like home for home. It's the only place in the world I feel comfortable, except my home Edinburgh. I was kind of sad Scott couldn't say even goodbye. I saved up months, after he kept asking me to meet up with him and traveled 8 hours on a flight. I kind of hoped he could have said goodbye at the end of the week. A few of my friend said maybe he didn't really want to say bye, not known if he'd see me again.
I had a good week meeting up with Scott, apart from that.
