New York part 3 – the part where you could WIN a trip to NYC
Making the most of a five day trip always comes down to good planning and excellent resources. In my case, my top three resources were Time Out New York for Visitors guide (which I bought in London before we left), Luxe City Guide to New York (a very handy freebie in my goodie bag from the Cult Beauty launch) and Metrotwin.com.
Over the past few months I’ve actually been moonlighting as a contributing editor for Metrotwin, a recommendations website for British Airways which links places in New York with London. Perceived bias aside, it’s got some very cool features like the unique twinning system, which links a place in London with its New York version (e.g. Habitat in London is linked with Crate and Barrel in New York). There’s also a plethora of lists to check out, like the top 10 shops to pick up decent workwear in London (that would be mine) and the best little cupcakes in town.
You need to register at Metrotwin to get access to all the lists and recommendations – and if you sign up now (it’s free), you also get the chance to enter in this very exciting competion…
Good luck, birdies!
