  • Magnolia Bakery is the most amazing bakery, hands down! My good friend and I could not get enough of the Hummingbird Cake while visiting New York this January. Delicious! All these photos make me smile. 🙂

  • thank you for sharing your NY photos. molly’s cupcakes is on my “to go” list when i visit NY.

  • thank you for such a beautiful view of my city! it’s so cool that you guys where here.

    I also Mary Poppins a few of years in London and now I’m living in London and playing the role of Mary Poppins, but in real life 🙂

  • These pictures are great! I would also like to know where you got those precious matching sandles. They are so cute! And I bet they are comfy!

  • emma i love this green floral dress so much! where do you got it from? 🙂

  • OH MY GOODNESS! I have always wanted to own a cafe, and if I ever do, I SO want to use that swing idea! That is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen!

  • Found the apple glasses at Urban Outfitters in case anyone was wondering. They also come in green and yellow, but I think the red is the cutest.

  • magnolia bakery is one of my alltime favorite NYC places!!!

    and emma- where did you get that pretty green dress??

  • Oh, this post is making me so nostalgic! On my last trip to NYC I also saw Mary Poppins and had a Magnolia cupcake.

  • New York is just full of inspiration, isn’t it.
    We should all go on a yearly pilgrimage for those who don’t live them (am in Paris, France!).
    Kisses to you all and thank you for the insight into your beautiful life Elsie xxxx

  • OMG i love NY, i want to go there!
    This cupcakes looks stunning! I want one…

  • Love the photos, it looks like you had an amazing time (a little jealous over here in cold and raining UK).


  • Great photos, New York is the best:) I have a 60D as well, but I need to use it more! Having an iphone has made me lazy!

  • omg!! now i really wanna visit NY with my sister and and mom :)) also your mom’s favourite cheesecake looks so delicious yum

  • I love all these photos! I love your blog! I have been reading it for a while and I love it!!


  • Wonderful pics! I’ve spent a couple of hours in NY but it wasn’t enough – must go back! 🙂

  • New York is my city and it’s the best city in the whole world!

  • Your mom must be so proud of you! 🙂
    You three look absolutely gorgeous!

  • I LOVE Mary Poppins (and already saw it twice^^). Isn’t it just great when she flies away or when Bert dances “over the roofs of London”? Just magical 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful time but your photos look so great, I guess it’s impossible you had anything else but a blast 🙂

  • The cafe with the swings looks so cute! I visited New York 4 years ago and loved it, although I only spent 3 days in the city and didn’t get to see half of the things that were on my list. Next time I visit, I’ll definitely check out the cupcake store!
    Do you have any thrift store recommendations for NY?

  • I adored your Big Apple glasses! I used to be an Astoria gal myself, so I loved the city reminders, those quaint corners where cupcakes rule, great inspiration lurks around each new bend, and when Mary clicks her heels up over the audiences head! Cheers to a wonderful week;)

  • your trip looks like so much fun!!

    curious – where did you get the sandals in the second to last photo? they are so gorgeous and i want a pair 🙂

  • i love the sandals – where are these from? i tried looking through some previous posts so forgive me if you already mentioned it!

  • Ah I love Mary Poppins! Always have since I was a little girl… it must have been magical to see on Broadway! Anywho, I love that you’re wearing your apple sunglasses in the Big Apple. And how your photography captures the little personal moments and the feel of a big city. <3, m.

  • Q: I have been looking everywhere for GAP perfume. I’ve loved Dream since Tenth Grade! Where did you find it if you don’t mind telling me?
    A: It’s from Gap.

    Q: Question, is that swing set counter seating?!
    A: Yep! It’s pretty cute, huh?

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

  • What a great collection of pictures!! I love the one of the bicycles. This collection really makes me want to make it back to New York.


  • this makes me more excited for my upcoming NYC trip in August (can it be august yet?)… Glad you had fun. I gotta try that Molly’s Cupcake!! wee…


  • Elsie, congratulations on your new home! I remembered myself looking for my home while reading you post on Everyday Elsie. I gotta say I also chose mine because of the sunlight!
    sorry for the bad english
    kisses from brazil!

  • I really love the pic of Emma with the blurred truck behind her, so fab! It looks you ladies had a grand time!! <3


  • I saw Mary Poppins on broadway last year. It was a must see for me, as it is one of my top two fave children’s movies EVER! I’m so very jealous of your trip to Magnolia! I just bought one of their cookbooks at a thrift shop for $2 and I’ve been obsessed with it ever since.

  • Thanks for the blog tips – I’m saving to hire a freckled nest genius 🙂

  • mmmm. This post brought back really good memories for me. My husband and I used to travel to NYC quite a bit when we lived in Virginia. My brother used to live in the city and it was so easy to drive and stay at his place and peruse the city at our leisure! Now we live in Portland, Oregon, so sadly we do not get there often! We too loved Mary Poppins on Broadway!

  • I have been looking everywhere for GAP perfume. I’ve loved Dream since Tenth Grade! Where did you find it if you don’t mind telling me? PLEASE!

    Thanks <3

  • Who makes the apple sunglasses? I’m probably too old for them anyway, but I’d still like a pair.

  • Looks like you ladies had a wonderful time! New York sounds so loud and vibrant, I want to go there so badly!


  • I have never been to New York, but these photos are gorgeous and have ignited a small part in me that now would really love to visit myself! <3

  • Question, is that swing set counter seating?! I want to do this in my house!

  • Beautiful! Looks like you guys had the best time over there. NY is my favorite city in the world. I love Emma’s green dress. Do you mind me asking where she got it? 🙂 xo

  • LOVE! I just went to Molly’s cupcakes TODAY in Chicago!! So funny! They are awesome!!! Glad you are having a great time!!

  • NY is so amazing, I can’t wait to go there again! Congrats on your fun trip!

  • I have been gobbling up these photos. I just moved to the city last week and am still trying to get my footing. Those pastry shops you mentioned are now on my list of places to satisfy a sweet tooth. Would it be possible to list some of the other places you shopped and ate (& drank). I love taking recommendations because they shuffle me around different parts of the city and guarantee a treat.

  • Looks like such a fun time! I was in New York with my mom in 2006 and I want to go back SO bad! <3

  • I love your vintage style photos! Beautiful and inspiring! Makes me want to jump on a plane for NYC tonight with my camera!

  • Cute photos! Those cupcakes look so good!

  • Your pictures are amazing! This has made me really want to go back to New York and have a proper look around the city (last time I visisted was on a school trip all the way from the UK so the whole visit was very structured!)

  • Cupcakes, cheesecake, yum! I love all the photos, and those glasses are fab!

  • Looove the apple sunglasses! (: <--- about following a dream

  • Those pictures are so pretty! I love how consistent your look is with your photos! And Emma, that green floral embroidered dress is so adorable on you!

  • I have always wanted to go! Someday…

  • Jenine, my camera was on auto settings when i took that photos with a 35mm lens.
    Our mom has a canon rebel Emma has a 40D and I have a 60D. 🙂

    Cin, Thank you so much! 😀

  • Amazing photos! I love them all! I wish I could visit NY again! Greetings from Argentina.

  • Those cupcakes look incredible! I need to visit Molly’s Cupcakes next time I’m in New York.

    Glad to hear you had a good time!

  • Your pictures are great. I especially love the one of Emma in focus with the blurred background. What setting did you use? Also, what cameras are you ladies holding in the pic of all 3 of you. Hope you had a good time!
