I took the Acela Express on Saturday to New York City for the weekend. My dear friend Mahawa from was visiting from Sierra Leone and we decided to meet in Manhattan. We stayed at the Dream Hotel in the meat packing district and I have to admit it has one of the sexiest pools I have seen this summer!

After getting settled into my room, we took a walk around the city and had lunch at Dos Camninos and boy do they have the yummiest yet  spiciest guacamole ever! After we did a little mani and pedi! Fabulous. I did the unbelievable, donned a fringed dress an a pair of Louboutins and danced the night away at Marquee!

After a long night of partying, I slept in most of the morning on Sunday, then headed to Sarabeths for breakfast…later drinks at Standard Hotel with friends.
