Crayola Pop Art Pixies VIP In NYC Part 2

Our second day of the Crayola Pop Art Pixies VIP NYC event was full of surprises. We knew we’d hitting some New York hot spots, but didn’t know which ones. We woke up early and headed down for a hot breakfast. It was so nice to see everyone again and you could feel the excitement in the room. After our meal, we did a quick and really fun craft, the Crayola Pop Art Pixies Glass Pendant, which we got to wear all day along with our shirts and ID tags. When we were done, we were off the bus for our adventure!

Crayola Pop Art Pixies Bus

The bus was decked out inside and out. Inside was like a disco, with flashing lights, music, cushioned seats and snacks and drinks. It started then. People from New York, who normally don’t bat an eye at anything looked at us. Some stopped in their tracks. This happened all day when we were together as a group. People may have thought that we were filming a TV show and we looked like we were – with our videographers, photographers and matching clothing.

Now remember we didn’t know where we were headed. We knew we’d be going to four places and every stop had something to do with each of the Pixies. So add surprise to the excitement we felt…

Horse and Buggy Ride Central Park

First Stop – Sky’s Scenic Ride at Central Park for Skye (Skye is known for Nature Nurture) We stopped to see the wind chimes we made the night before hanging from a tree. They looked so pretty along with the fall leaves. Then we were off on a horse and buggy ride that took us through the park. We chose a purple buggy with Jennifer Leet and her daughter Ashton. Great conversation, beautiful scenery and lots of photo opps.

Rockefeller Center

Second Stop – Tatum’s Tea Party at Magnolia Bakery for Tatum (Tatum is known for Life… so Fun) Ah, I’ve loved this bakery since another trip to NYC. We were in a private room and started off with a lunch of sandwiches (tons of choices). We learned how to decorate cupcakes from a young girl who worked there and made it look so simple. When we tried, it was so hard, but so yummy. Especially eaten on our Crayola Pop Art Pixies Glass Plates

Break On Our Own – Rockefeller Center to be tourists and that we did. Sammi and I walked around to see the famous tree that was still in scaffolding, the ice skating rink and the store window. Even though I said I’d buy her something, she just wanted a hot dog to eat. She kept saying that the trip was a gift!

Third Stop – Maya’s Museum Tour at the Museum of Modern Art (Maya is known for Art is life) We took a tour of some of the artists like Monet, Vincent Van Gough and Henri Rousseau and then on to the Pop Art display with Andy Warhol’s paintings. We showed off our Crayola Pop Art Pixies Shadow Boxes in a group photo outside the museum.

Sammi and MszDJQ Scratch DJ Academy

Fourth Stop – Naomi’s DJ Dance Party at Scratch DJ Academy (Naomi is known for Music is to Die For) Our night ended with our favorite stop where Sammi learned how to be a DJ, where we had a dinner of sushi, Japanese candy and pizza and where we made the disco ball like Crayola Pop Art Pixies Color Glow Lamp and danced till we couldn’t dance any more! Sammi loves music and she got her groove on.  We started this stop out exhausted. Some of us (ahem, me) were even getting grumpy, but as the time went on, we had so much fun that we forgot about being tired!

On the ride back to the hotel on the bus, we all let our hair down. With songs like Empire State of Mind and New York, New York, we sang out loud, danced in our seats and chattered away about the day we just spent together. We got to know about each of the Crayola Pop Art Pixies, visited some hot spots in NYC and were treated like VIPs.

    It was one of the best trips I’ve been on Ellen. Now that Sammi is older, I’m planning on some more trips with just the both of us. NYC is on our list already!
