I was lucky enough to go to New York last week for a work trip, it was my first time and I loved it! It was a short but amazing trip with the highlights being a stolen afternoon away from the office wondering around Soho, brunch at Le Pain Quotidien and the high rises glinting in the gorgeous sunshine .
