Happy Tuesday! Has the festiveness taken over your life yet? It’s getting there for me but I only have one weekend left in New York before I go home for Christmas, so I am trying to pack as many Christmas activities into my days as is physically possible. One place I seem to be drawn to and end up going back to time and time again (I’ve been 4 times in the last 2 weeks) is the location for today’s Christmas in New York post – The Lotte New York Palace Hotel.
Of all of the New York Christmas sites, this is one of my absolute favourites. I know I said it in last weeks post in the Upper East Side, but this place truly is a ‘hidden New York Christmas gem.’ Why? Well although it is only 1 block away from the Rockefeller Center, it never gets the crazy crowds you’ll see around ‘the tree.’ If you are fan of Gossip Girl you will be familiar with this hotel too. It was the setting for some of the most famous scenes from the show, so you are guaranteed to see some GG fans while you’re here…

Speaking of my last weekend here, I am really excited about this one because I will be doing my first ever Instagram takeover with OtterBox – eeeek! I’m going to be taking over their Instagram account for the weekend to bring a little bit of the New York Christmas fun to their page. As you can imagine, I’m super excited because (as you know) I love doing Christmas things and this is the perfect excuse for me to overload on Christmas sites for all of my last weekend in New York before I head back to the Emerald Isle. Be sure to follow along to see what spots I visit on my takeover. It’s gonna be a jam packed, but really fun weekend.
Hope you’re having a good week,
