Day Twenty ~ Left good ol' Houston, stopped by Phoenix and eventually arrived in Las Vegas, got on a transfer and headed to our hotel, waited way too long for our room to be ready, played a couple games whilst we waited then eventually headed to our room, got dressed up for the night, headed down to the strip in unbelievable heat, wandered along the strip for a while, bought a few bits and pieces, watched the fountain do its thang at Caesars Palace, bought some ridiculous sized drinks, ate dinner at Chipotle and eventually headed back to the hotel.

Day Twenty Two ~ Woke up far too early and headed out to the Grand Canyon! (full photo diary coming next) After a massive day visiting the Grand Canyon we went straight back to our hotel, got all dressed up, had a couple drinks and eventually headed out onto the strip, explored some casinos, played a couple games, went to club Omnia, somehow ended up in VIP, spent the rest of the night drinking the night awaaaaay.

Day Twenty Three ~ 4TH OF JULY ~
Woke up and poured a drink, got all festive for fourth of July, Headed down the strip to Encore Beach Club, grabbed a snack on the way, spent the day partying by the pool with hundreds of other people, drank free beer, ended the pool party watching Skrillex play then eventually stumbled out of the pool party exhausted, (day drinking is hard work in Vegas heat) headed to Shake Shack for a burger then eventually headed back to our hotel to relax, ended the night hanging out in the room and buying tacky souvenirs hehe.

Day Eleven ~ Got the day going with some yummy breakfast then headed into the city to go up the mighty Rockefellar, Spent an hour or so lookin’ at the pretty city, headed to Empire state and spent another hour havin’ a look (NY TIP: I seriously would only recommend going up the Rockefellar and looking at the Empire State. Top of the Rock is 3 levels of views with glass so all your views are clear. Empire is pretty underwhelming compared to Rockefellar and your view is covered by a cage) After looking at the city from every angle imaginable we walked down 5th Avenue, went for a little shop, Spotted the Flatiron building, Crossed the road with Julia Roberts, went back to the apartment for a refresh and eventually headed back out to St Marks, went to Ten Degrees for happy hour, ate dinner at a yummy Mexican place, after dinner we explored St Marks a little more (Which was super cool by the way) eventually headed home with some lovely blisters.   

Day Twelve ~ Started our day with the Gossip Girl tour, drove all around the city and saw almost 40 destinations from the TV series, finished the tour at Grand Central and had a lil look because you can't not, grabbed a couple slices of pizza and ate them at the library where the Sex and the City almost wedding was filmed, headed to our landmark cruise, saw the Statue of liberty, the Brooklyn bridge and everything in-between, got off the boat and walked to the 9/11 memorial, after the memorial we headed to Wall Street to check out the big bull, eventually hopped on the train back to Long Island, hung out in the park along the river where we were staying and randomly found a Meghan Trainor concert, grabbed a bite to eat and relaxed in the apartment for the rest of the evening.

Day Thirteen ~ Put on some cute outfits and headed to East Village, had a bottomless brunch at a super cute place called 'Pardon my French', got a little bit tipsy after a lot of mimosas, after brunch we walked to Soho for a little bit of shopping, found an insane Zara sale and bought lots of goodies, explored Soho for a little bit and eventually walked to the court house where Law and Order is filmed, hopped on a train and headed back to Long Island, grabbed some Thai takeaway from Tuk Tuk and ate it back at the apartment, got all dressed up and headed out to a tequila bar in Lower East Side and had a little boogy.
