My best friend Lauren ( laurensmelley.com ), lives in the West Village of lower Manhattan and works for a premium denim company. Recently, my South African "family" made the 31 hour flight over to visit the Big City and this past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit them and stay with Lauren! I had no idea I would be seeing my sweet friends so soon and in such a fun city. It would be impossible not to fall in love with the charming West Village and all the many quaint cafe's and shops. I can't wait to visit again when it's warmer! Here's a few photos from our adventures.
