Today during my morning drive to work, Imagine by John Lennon comes on the radio. It's one of my all time favorite songs.

It brought back memories of when I travelled to NYC over the summer, and my cousin & I made it a point visit John Lennon's memorial at Central Park. We also passed by The Dakota building where Lennon had lived until his untimely death. He was shot right outside of his building.

Below are some pics I took of both, the memorial and the building.

New York, New York!

On July 29th, I had my bags ready, passport in hand and was off to the airport to spend three wonderful weeks in beautiful NYC.

My airline of choice...Emirates Airlines :) The best airline in the world for 2016. 
I boarded the luxurious A380 straight from the Business Class lounge at Dubai International Airport, and was led to my seat by a friendly flight attendant. I was ready to begin the most relaxing 14 hour flight to New York. My seat reclined to a full bed (with a seat mattress, comfy pillow and thick blanket/quilt, of course), Mimosa in hand and Arrow on TV...what more could a girl ask for? 

I arrived to JFK airport fourteen hours later, relaxed and refreshed. My driver was waiting for me at the arrivals hall, ready to take me to my destination.

On Saturday July 30th, I was invited to a bachelorette party. A black stretch limo picked us up from the house,  champagne chilling inside the car and we were on our way to dinner. Our first stop was Tao in uptown Man…
