Today is the first time I wear this polka dot dress I bought a couple of weeks ago... I wanted to wait for a somewhat special occasion to wear it for the first time, and what better occasion than a day at NYC!

My day today at New York city was just wonderful! My boyfriend and I had such a nice time doing so many different things. First we went to the New York auto show since my boyfriend loves cars. Apart from all the normal cars, they had some really cute ones like this one:

jajajaja, I'm posed as a bunny in case you were wondering. I also found this cool sign that said "The Joy of driving"... (like the joy of fashion) jejeje what are the odds! They must have been expecting me :)

The best thing about the auto show is that we got to see one of my boyfriend's dream cars. He would have never imagined it to be there and he has told me a cazillion times since I met him that it would be a dream come true to see it. Its a Ferrari Enzo and his face when he saw it was absolutely priceless. I'm glad I was there to live his dream come true :)

After the auto show, we went to a really cool museum called Ripley's Believe it or Not. It's a very unusual museum filled with cool facts and unbelievable stories.

Here we got to see some really interesting and surprising things, like the tallest man in the world...

... and a huge "painting" made out of postal stamps!

We also got to take some strange pictures like me without legs:

... or me wearing a weird piggy mask.

Some pictures are just downright funny, like my boyfriend and I with our heads in scientific experiment jars...

... or me freaked out about some seriously HUGE cockroaches (these are real btw!).

All in all, it was a really cool museum! Have any of you ever been there? After that, we walked around the city just enjoying the unique feeling of being in New York city. My boyfriend surprised me by buying this fashionable art for my apartment, I love it!

I have always wanted to try one of those famous NYC bakeries I always read about, so we decided to go to Magnolia's bakery. This bakery is so famous that there were long lines all the way out the shop! jajjaa. Once we finally got our hands on a box, we headed back to times square to sit down and enjoy them.
April 10 (21)
This was probably my favorite part of the entire day: my boyfriend and I sitting in the middle of times square eating the most delicious cupcakes. As I sat there eating and laughing, I just felt that I was living one of those perfect moments that I would remember forever. I kept thinking that it just doesn't get much better than this. It was simply perfect.

The cupcakes were absurdly delicious btw, I highly recommend you try them! And after I thought things couldn't get any better, I got to pet a horse! I have loved horses since my childhood, so this was a real treat for me :)

It was simply a perfect day at NYC... one of those days that feel like a fairy tale. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend as well!
