New York in iPhone Photos!

Hotel room viewHotel room viewHi friends! We are traveling home today from an amazing trip to New York. Here are a few photos that the four of us snapped with our iPhones…Random HouseOur first order of business was a day full of meetings with our publisher. It was amazing to meet the entire team in person (so many talented + fun people!) and make plans for current and future book projects. By the end of the day our minds were exploding with ideas and inspiration. Plus, you should see the to-do list that we brought home with us. Epic.Taza!It was such a treat to meet Naomi (and Josh too!) over brunch. We loved talking about projects, BABIES (no, we're not pregnant) and blogging. She's such a gem!Empire State BuildingEmma and Trey got all touristy and visited the Empire State Building one afternoon. So sweet. #megryan

We love dogs in coats!When someone asked me what my favorite part of New York was I quickly replied, "DOGS IN COATS!" That's an exaggeration, I'm sure, but it was  super fun to see so many cute doggies out walking in their cute outfits. I tried very hard to control my excitement.So much funWe felt lucky this trip, because we got to meet up with several old and new friends! We had cocktails with Gala, Bonnie and Keiko (all SO sweet), and we made new friends too. It was fun to meet some blog readers at the Sucre concert as well! Thank you so much to everyone who said hello—that was a treat!Coffee at StumptownStumptown coffee… so good. 

Our doggies twins at American ApparelAs we were walking to dinner one night, I saw some familiar faces in a window at American Apparel. How fun is that?Cute wallCute wallCute wallWe had such a good time! I hope we will be back to visit again when the weather is warmer. We're in love with the city. Until next time…. xo. Elsie (+ Emma too) 

  • Ommmgeee. The Frenchies with their little coats on are TOO cute! I wish my Smooshy liked to be dressed up. I try but he hates it. I can get him to endure it for a short time during photo shoots but on a walk? Forget it. Looks like you ladies had fun!

  • I’ve just come back from my first trip to NYC, it was magical but I must admit looking at all the cute dogs was one of my fave things to do.

  • Greetings from the Philippines! I’ve always looooved reading your blog, it’s such a nice place for great art farts! ?

    Anyway, Elsie has anybody ever told you that you look like Zooey Deschanel or do you get that a lot? Well, cheers and have a great week ahead of you! 🙂

  • I loved all your pictures. I’m actually planning a trip this weekend. Do you have any good dinner recommendations? The food scene is a bit overwhelming to me. I actually googled, where do hipsters eat in NY?


  • Looks like so much fun, I would love to go to the Empire State Observatory. Those Frenchies in coats are so, so cute!!

  • Perfect pictures of NY taken by phone. Great you posted them as we don’t have the opportunity to go there. Too far.

  • Aww, my favourite is the second to last.
    Just shows that even though I don’t have a fancy camera, I’m capable of taking some pretty decent pictures with my ohone too xx

  • Cute pictures. Sometimes you just need a quick snap and only your iPhone can make the cut. It’s amazing how good the quality can be though!

    I hope you had an amazing holiday.


  • SMEG!!!! I am a sad little beach bungalow renter so our fridge came with the digs:( I have contemplated the thought of a home purchase to SMEG-ify my kitchen so it looks like you went thru a time capsule oh well.. the microwave and coffee pot will have to suffice.


  • What iPhone apps do you use for photos aside from Instagram? These photos are lovely! 🙂

  • Mnnawe. Lovely.

    But I feel a sinking feeling. Not that you haven’t accomplished a lot but you seem to be in love with yourself more and more.

    Puts me of the USA all over again.

  • Love the photobooth photos, and that ampersand wall is so awesome! Makes me smile! Glad you guys had a good trip!

  • I am in love with NYC I want to goo there! hopefully next year 🙂

  • you should check out top of the rock next time. much nicer view than empire state plus the observation deck is larger and much more comfortable to roam

  • Looks like so much fun!!


  • Love seeing my favorite bloggers come together! and those dogs in coats are hilarious! hah.

  • Love this post. It’s so playful and casual. Looks like ye had lots of fun. CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BOOK!

  • Ahh the dogs!! And I love those photobooth photos, we don’t really have them in London anymore, such a shame. Just another reason to add to the ever expanding why-I-need-to-hop-on-a-plane-to-NY list

  • It was such a privilege getting to meet you gals at the Sucre Concert on Sat <3 <3
    Thanx for being so sweet and nice and taking pictures with me.
    I’ve been following your blog for over a year now and that’s how I started listening to Sucre. So excited I was able to see the band live 🙂
    My husband said: “So they are behind all your printing E-courses you buy online and all your crafty projects at home” ….
    My answer: “Yes in deed…aren’t they amazing 😀 ”
    You ladies are such an inspiration, keep up the great work!
    Best, Andrea

  • Lovely photos, I’ve always wanted to visit New York, thanks for sharing!

  • As someone who lives in NYC, the dogs are the best part! I never get tired of seeing people walking their dogs.

    Sorry I missed you. It sounds like you had a blast though.

  • This looks like such fun! It has been a few years since I have been to New York, and then I was too young to really enjoy it. I would love to go back!
    I love Naomi! Her blog is so cute. That is super fun that you got to meet her.

  • It looks like an amazing trip filled with lots of awesome people! P.S. I love Naomi’s blog!

  • Always, always the best photos to go along with your lovely stories. I seriously can not wait for what’s to come with your publisher. And how about that hotel you stayed at? Seems pretty cool to me.

  • I live in NYC and love that 2 of your favorite things (stumptown and pups in their coats) are also 2 of my favorite things!

  • I love the city. I live right outside of NY, so I visit pretty frequently. There’s never a dull moment when you’re there though.

    Juliette Laura

  • It looks like you guys had a blast! Those dogs in coats are hilariously adorable!

  • I feel the same about new york. Love the pictures. Hope you had loads of fun there..

  • I fell in love with New York too, the first time I was there and have been wanting to go back ever since. And the view from the Empire State Building is breathtaking! Oooohhh New York was my only holiday on which I went really touristy and saw all the sights, haha. It’s better to do these touristy things in winter anyway as there are far less people.


  • the iphone image quality always amazes me =) looks like a great time, can’t wait to see what you guys have been working on!

  • Ahhh, NYC is my hometown. Glad you guys had fun visiting here. Definitely hit up North Brooklyn next time you are back! I’m a Queens girl but living in Willamsburg now. Tons of cute stores & restaurants. A little funkier than the good old city.

  • This is giving me an itch to head to the big apple. i’ve been four times but every time i’ve been pregnant. i’m ready for a bun-free adventure.

  • I hope to visit NYC one day:D I would love to visit MOMA and Gugenheim Museum as well as jog in the Central Park and travel in a yellow cab:D Maybe one day…

  • Looks like you guys had a great time here. I love the dogs too!


  • Looks like a great trip! Where did you find the wonderful photobooth? I will be visiting NYC in the summer and I have always wanted to get some classic photobooth pictures.

  • It looks so much fun! I’m always amazed at little blogger communities, I think it’s so great how you all know each other 🙂

  • looks like such a fun trip! Stumptown coffee really is amaaazing! After my first trip to Portland I was addicted and have acquired and expensive monthly habit of ordering beans from them online, but it’s totally worth it 🙂

  • I love technologies ability to change the way we do things and with that we have more advanced phones that take lovely photos without the use of a digital camera!

  • New York is beautiful but I love the photo booth pics of you and Jeremy. So sweet:)

  • looks like an awesome trip! now i’m getting new york fever…

  • oh my gosh – you must have had a freaking blast!! I love Naomi and her blog is amazing!! We are planning a trip to NY in September, because I’ve never been. Its going to be our ”babymoon” 🙂

    xx Ashleigh


  • NYC has been on my mind for quite some time now, this post is kind of sign I guess LOL Love the pics!
