Maybe it’s be­cause I grew up watch­ing Home Alone 2, but vis­it­ing New York City over the hol­i­days feels so right. There are the tra­di­tional sights to be seen—the happy cou­ples skat­ing at Rock­e­feller Cen­ter, the ex­trav­a­gant win­dow dis­plays at Saks Fifth Av­enue, the snow-topped trees in Bryant Park—but the en­tire city is mag­i­cal. I vis­ited my S.O. there last year dur­ing a glo­ri­ous snow­fall and have the warm­est mem­o­ries (de­spite how cold and wet we were!). We went to all the clichéd des­ti­na­tions, and along the way, we stopped to do some shop­ping (hello, Sézane!) and eat deca­dent meals (Balt­hazar with its fes­tive trim­mings is so dreamy). But my favourite part? Go­ing back to his place to warm up and share a bot­tle of red, a cozy blan­ket and lots of laughs.

While I was there, we strolled through the most mag­i­cal snow­fall, where over­size con­fetti-like snowflakes made ev­ery­thing glis­ten.
