Downtown Saint Petersburg… the heart and soul of the city. It felt as though down every alley way was lined with cobblestone grounds and architecture to die for. Exploring the hallways of art galleries and taking in all the brightly painted murals was a photographers dream… or at least mine. As soon as I caught heart eyes for one mural I’d turn the corner to be amazed by another. It fascinates me how every artist has a completely different technique for when it comes to creating their murals yet they’re all cohesive.
By the time we had wrapped up roaming through the back ways of Downtown our stomachs had awakened an appetite we couldn’t ignore. Our cuisine destination of choice: Locale Market. With food stations stretching from back to front there’s no denying the urban ambience this place carries. Sadly at this time in our adventure my hangry side dominated and the photographer / blogger side got shoved to the curb which is why there’s no photographs of food. *insert sad face*
Now and then there’s nothing better then taking a good ole break from reality and one of the best places to escape to is the beach! I’m here for a week with some lovely family and friends. Here’s my vacation so far in pictures! You know what they say, A picture is worth a thousand words! Don’t forget to follow me on IG (@beautychatwithlexi) and Snapchat (@beautywithlexi)!
This is the 2nd post in my A Week In NYC series where I share some highlights from my trip. Now what’s a trip to the Big Apple without taking a stroll through Central Park. Central Park is one of the most scenic destinations I’ve ever been to, which is why I had to dedicate an entire post to it. There are gorgeous 360 degree views of Manhattan throughout the entire park.
That wraps up this travel post, if you missed the first installment in this series go check that one out. Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday and Friday for the last two posts.
At the end of April I spent a week in New York City along with my family and friends. NYC has got to be one of my most loved cities, which is why I couldn’t resist going back a 2nd time. We covered a lot of ground in the week that we were there from taking pictures of flowers in Central Park to roaming the streets in Hoboken, New Jersey. I’ve created a series called A Week In NYC so I can share with you some of the highlights from my New York City trip. So without further ado A Week In NYC // Top Of The Rock & Rockefeller Center.
The first weekend the weather was beautiful, all sunny skies with no cloud in sight. We took advantage of this opportunity to do some sight seeing and first on our list was Rockefeller Center.
Another destination that was on our checklist was the Top Of The Rock observation decks at the top of the GE Building right near Rockefeller Center. One of the best views in Manhattan of the Empire State Building, Statue Of Liberty and even Central Park. There are 3 observation decks both inside and outdoors, the 70th floor is the only floor not enclosed with glass barriers.
That’s it for this A Week In NYC post, if you enjoyed this post and want to see more don’t forget to like it. There will be several more A Week In NYC post up showcasing some more highlights from my trip. Getting completely off topic I’ve been thinking about doing a Q&A post and I wanted to know if that is something you would want to see. If that’s something you would like to see you can leave me some comments asking questions.
