9:22 AM Let me share a very romantic love story today. A love that was meant to be and I am so glad about this encounter.
I remember one of my first times in NYC, New York had still this exotic vibe and I wanted to bring my loved ones gifts from very far away.

My mom, for example, loves candles...fancy candles. Back then, the best place to get her favorite brand with the special edition fragrance was Bed Bath & Beyond. A place unknown, but soon to become my most exciting NYC shopping experience.

Right on day 1 of my trip, I decided to hike up 6th Ave and try to find this mekka of home goods. It was easier than I thought.
This place is a palace!! First of all, you can not miss it...it's just there, boom (in this very beautiful building). But then, you enter and you feel more than lost, but in a good way!
Many people are here — that must be a good thing...

I walk through the aisles. Kitchen supply, pans, cooking equipment, baking things, coffee wonderland, cleaning and household pleasures, tons of decoration, including my mom's candles, daily hygiene, medicine, and make-up, and oh, how could I forget? A special "food market". 
Excuuuse me.
Where was I?

This must be heaven.

I understood why so many people gathered there. This place feels so warm and inviting. Every shelf in there is highly organized and just simply beautiful. Issa a vibe.

I got a very special Christmas candle for my mom and decided to study their food market.
If you happen to stay in a hotel close to Bed Bath & Beyond and you need snacks or basic supply, don't spend too much at Bodegas, spend your cash at BBB.
I feel like this is a secret, but they offer so many cool things for very cheap and I would also say that you'll find the best gifts there as well.

To make it less abstract. They offer oils, candy, chips, cookies, breakfast supply, special treats, and there's a whole fridge and freezer section plus beverages of course.
I always buy my favorite Siete chips there, bought my dad peanut butter powder that I couldn't find anywhere else, and now my top secret: I stock up on Clif bars. First of all was BBB the only place where I got the special winter flavors and second, they were only 1$. In Germany I pay waaaay more.
— BBB often offers super high quality products in their sale or special promotion. Get your deal there!

But this is not it.
To be honest, I can check off so many things of my list at BBB.
When I discovered Nature's Truth in their health corner, I knew it was meant to be. First of all I was amazed how many health and wellness related things they offer, but then discovering Nature's Truth, I was more than excited to test (adding this to my routine changed my life, read again here). The wellness shelf became one of my favorites at BBB.

During my last stay, on day 1, I did my usual ritual, going to BBB to get gifts and a couple of home goods. This time I bought a new tumbler, more Siete chips and Clif bars, and new Nature's Truth additions. I never spend too much money there and I love how broad and high quality their offer is.

When writing my shopping list on the plane, I asked myself if I really need to go to BBB... I am buying the same things over and over.
No actually not.

BBB feels like a big hug for me.
As soon as I touch down in NYC, I hike up 6th Ave and as soon as I enter the place, I know I'm right.
I'm there.
I'm home.
Bed Bath & Beyond feels like home to me.
A New York trip doesn't feel like home when not going to BBB.

This is my favorite NYC lovestory.
