The Ultimate New York City Travel Guide

Please Rate Article: 

The great city of New York is possibly one of the most famous in the world. Nearly every movie set in a city is based here. It is the scene of a million different activities on any given date. The Big Apple is an incredible place to visit. Ifonly.com has more than a few recommendations for things to do in the city that will blow your mind and make you fall in love all over again every day you are here.

Visit the MOMA

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most incredible museums in the world today. Affectionately called the Met by New Yorkers, there are over two million pieces of art here, spanning 5000 years of human history. This isn’t a visit to be taken lightly – it will take you up to a week to check out all the works at all the different galleries here.

Check Out Times Square

Times Square is another famous part of the city. It is also one of the most chaotic areas in town. The flashing lights, dense crowds, and the cacophonous sounds are all cause enough for most residents to give it a wide berth. If you want to experience it at least once, it is highly recommended that you go here, if only to take a few pictures before being swept away by the river of humanity flowing through it.

Climb the Empire State Building

Once called the tallest building in the world, this is an iconic part of any New York City visit. It is a symbol of progress, heritage, and a tribute to modern engineering. The building is also one of the most romantic in the city, so make sure you bring a date when you go all the way to the top. There is a deck on the 86th floor open to the air, and a large observatory on the 102nd.

Cross the Brooklyn Bridge

This bridge is a primary landmark in NYC. It spans the East River and is the main trunk line between the island of Manhattan and the borough of Brooklyn. The Bridge has walking paths made for cyclists, skaters, and pedestrians that is located above the main roadway of the bridge, allowing for amazing scenery during your walk. It is recommended that you walk across the bridge instead of taking a cab!

See Lady Liberty on Ellis Island

Bring me your tired, your huddled masses yearning for…the Statue of Liberty is one of the most symbolic sculptures in the whole world. For millions of refugees over the decades, it has been the first sight they have ever seen of the land of the free. Take the ferry over to Ellis Island from Battery Park and visit the observation deck in her torch. This tends to be rather crowded, so be prepared to fight for a good view! New York City is one of the best places to be in America. If you haven’t been here already, start planning your trip right now! It isn’t worth missing it in your lifetime.

Very awesome Aromatherapy Essential Oil Ultrasonic Diffuser

Please Rate Article: 


Hey guys! If you are looking for an amazing diffuser, this is the one you must purchase. Not only is this a diffuser, it is also a mist humidifier. Just look at it. I looks nice and inviting in any room in your home. I love it! I comes with cord to plug into your wall and will create that warming and comfortable home you want with whatever essential oils scents of your choosing. This diffuser/humidifier also has a timer with 4 settings, above all is quite! If you are like me and have used other diffusers in the past, or present, that were loud, this is the one for your in your home or office.




Not only is this diffuser/humidifier quite, it has an auto power shut off and has 7 mood changing lights. Right now, I have the diffuser on my kitchen countertop, but will move it around my home as I see fit. I love the changing colors and you will too.

Oh I Just Love These New Paint Brushes

Please Rate Article: 

I love painting and I was recently looking for some new brushes or various sizes. These The Art Chest paint brushes I found that come in sizes 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12. These brushes are soft and all you have to do before using them is gently rub each brush hair with your fingers to loosen the coating that is on each brush. Like I have done with other brushes, I also dip these brushes in warm water for about a couple minutes. Once in the warm water, I rinse and dry off the brushes before use.





These paint brushes can be use for acrylic, watercolor, oil, tempera, gouache painting mediums as well.

Because I like to paint so much, I bought more than one pair of them and really enjoy the different sizes and they do not shed either. This is important because the last thing a painter wants is brush hairs in their painting.
