New York in 1 Post: Mondrian Hotel, Ouidad Salon & Megu

Adrienne February 1, 2012 0

Last week I made my way to New York to attend Motion’s Cocktail Luncheon showcasing their new natural hair care line Naturally You. As promised, here is rundown of how I spent my time in the Big Apple.

First, I checked into the super chic Mondrian in Soho. This beautiful boutique hotel is located on a bricked street in the city and unlike other hotels, it doesn’t have a huge sign announcing it presence. Instead, it has a small sign amidst an arch of greenery.

My living quarters were fabulous, to say the least. The entry way of the room was marble and everything, aside from the royal blue carpet under the bed, was white. Speaking of the bed, it was heavenly; I almost didn’t want to leave.

After attending the cocktail luncheon I, along with Lexi, made my way to Ouidad’s Salon. Lexi received a cut & color (check it out here) and I enjoyed the salon and all it had to offer.

The staff was extremely warm & friendly. The salon itself was full of space and had an awesome playlist! If I wasn’t chatting away with a stylist, Lexi or the receptionist I was literally singing every song I knew.

The next day my sister, Danielle, Lexi & I went to dinner at Megu in Tribeca. I had never heard of this restaurant. However, it came highly recommended by Danielle and, being that it was Restaurant Week in NY, a 3 course meal was only $35!

As an appetizer I had Parmesan french fries & fried shrimp. Our entree, we all ordered the same thing, was Kobe steak, cooked on a rock right in front of your eyes, and rice. For dessert I had a chocolate mousse decorated with fruit.

Simply put, my entire meal was DEE-LICIOUS! If you are in NY you might want to give Megu a try. Caution, it’s bit pricey. But, from what I experienced, definitely worth the money!

On my last day in the city I spent a few hours at the New York Public Library on 42nd & 5th. Yes, the one where Carrie is supposed to marry Big in the first Sex and the City movie.

I didn’t snap any photos for fear that my camera would get ruined in the rain; but trust me when I say, this library is gorgeous. With marble staircases and art exhibits lining the hallways, it’s almost like a museum.

I know, you who goes to the library on a trip to NY? Well, in all honesty, I have a bit of a geeky side. I love to read and have a been known to enjoy, more than the average person, chilling in the library [don’t tell anybody:)]

That just about sums up my brief but eventful trip to New York. Check out a few more photos below.
