Monkey Business (+ a giveaway!)

With only 2 days left for our stay in Spain {seriously, where did this past month go?}, we are spending today doing one last grand adventure.
We are off to the Rock of Gibraltar!
And ever since my encounter with the camels in Morocco
I feel very one with the animals.
So basically, I have no doubt that this will be me today {see picture below} with the monkeys.

Prepare yourselves for some epic pictures to come.
And yes, this is my head on a man's body.
I bet you couldn't even tell because I'm so amazing with my Photoshop editing skills.


Since it's Monday, and I can still remember what it's like to have those Monday Blues, staring blurry-eyed at my computer screen, while downing my 2nd cup of coffee, I have some wonderful news for you to help cheer you up.

My friend, Setarra, has generously offered to give one of you something very special.


-A $25 Sephora Giftcard <-- Perfect for the holidays or to keep it for yourself! Which...let's be honest here, is exactly what I would do.
-The Happiness Project book <--On my list of books to read! Heard it's amazing.
-A "I heart NY" snow globe <--Who doesn't heart NY??

So, I shall hand this off to Setarra!
Don't forget to enter below!


Chello friends of Mish's Blog!

Setarra here and I blog over at The Burghal Gurl
My little bloggity is a place where I talk about life, living in NYC, dance, food and all things in between that make me happy.

With the holidays fast approaching, there is soooo much to see and take part in as New York embraces this season with cheery zest. Doesn't that word make you think of that jingle ... You're not fully clean unless you're ZEST-fully cleeeeeean!
Anywho, I have a long list of places I want to explore this season and sooooo far ...

I've scoped out the City Pond in Bryant Park.
Super fun if you like to ice skate OR like to pretend to ice skate!

Braved the crowds at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade.
Don't Bring Your Family To This... Please... DON'T.

Visited The Union Square Holiday Market.
Great for holiday shopping if you like to support small businesses :)

The next items on my list for this month are to check out The Christmas Tree at the Rockefeller Center, browse the infamous Macy's window displays, visit various tea lounges in the city (I don't drink coffee) and walk through The Plaza Hotel like I can afford to book a room there (We can blame this item on Home Alone 2).

Despite living in New York for a year, I'm still in 'resident tourist' mode so feel free to send me suggestions of places you think I should visit! Especially if it's cheap! I'm allllll about thrifty or free excursions!

Don't Be Shy! Stop By My Blog and say "Hi!" :)
