Gossip Girl Tour: It starts at The New York Palace, drives around the Upper East Side and then goes through lots of different filming locations. We stopped off at Henry Bendel (Blair’s favourite shop), the school building which is actually The City of New York Museum Building, the Empire Hotel (which we are staying at tomorrow night for Ali’s birthday - cheers Rod & Wend), The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Meatpacking District to see boutiques and Dylan’s Candy Bar uptown.
The tour got off to a hilarious start, with the German woman sitting in front of us having a domestic with her 10-year-old daughter, where she hit her and shouted very loudly ‘NIEN’ and sat for the next hour of the tour staring at the window and ignoring her young daughter. The moment she started shouting and obviously nudging her daughter me and Ali were in hysterics, and crying with laughter. All my suntan cream went in my eyes, because of the laughter, and I had to spend the rest of the day with my sun glasses on as my mascara went all over my eyes.
The tour was great and we both got cakes from Dylans Candy Bar - happy chicks! Perfect start to Ali’s birthday celebrations!
We went to the Highline for a bit in the afternoon, and ate some haribo (cheers Fiona) and then came home. We have just had chile for dinner and have painted our nails and packed our bags to go to the Empire Hotel first thing tomorrow to use the rooftop swimming pool - going via Tiffany for Ali to buy her charm bracelet!
Very exciting few days, and can’t wait to celebrate Ali’s 21st! Can’t believe it’s here already, this year has flown by. And how depressing, this now means I am half way to 22 - eugh!
