The snow started coming down on Friday and it seems as if the chill is here to stay.

Yesterday my goal was to finish up Christmas shopping come hell, high water, snow or freezing rain. So to prep I uploaded some holiday tunes on my MP3 player, bundled up and braved the world. I took the train down to Canal St. and worked my way up the shops in SoHo, NoHo and Union Square.

The Union Square open air holiday market had some awesome booths but the snow was starting to chill my bones so I enlisted the help of my friend Peppermint Mocha to pick me up. With that, I'm pretty sure I checked out each vendor multiple times as I worked my way through the maze of shops. However, after that I ditched my plan to walk to Bryant Park and check out their stores. Instead I hoped on the train, so I could get the feeling back in my feet, made my way back to the UES and finished shopping on my home turf.

The weather outside is still frightful but tis the season.
