Officer Off Limits by Tessa Bailey (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today I am excited to welcome author Tessa Bailey, back with her new release of OFFICER OFF LIMITS!

Top Ten Things to Bring to New York

Hello Crystal! Thank you so much for having me today – so happy to be celebrating my recent release, OFFICER OFF LIMITS. As my Line of Duty Series is set mostly in New York and is also where I live, I thought I’d make a list of the top 10 things to pack when coming to the Big Apple. Hope you enjoy ☺

1. Money – A lot of it. Seriously, this place is ex-pen-sive. Especially if you want to have a decent time. Good restaurants, incredible shopping options, night life that never stops. You’re basically going to want to bring a big portion of your life savings.

2. Baby Wipes – New York is a great city. It’s also filthy. There is always some goo you stepped in or puddle that a cab splashes on your sandaled feet. Maybe you just got off the subway during rush hour and were forced to hang onto a pole. The same pole thousands of people held onto before you that day. Baby wipe it!

3. Book/Newspaper – Since we’re already on the subject of our fine transportation system, you will want to bring something to help you avoid eye contact with strangers. Bury your nose in that book and don’t look up until you reach your stop. Or the next thing you know, someone smelly is talking your ear off. Avoid at all costs.

4. A high tolerance for alcohol – Drinking here is a given. You meet at a bar, you end up at a bar…at some point, you will be inside a bar. Start training months in advance.

5. A camera – To discreetly capture all the crazy sights you will inevitably see. Or to prove later in court that something wasn’t your fault.

6. Flats – You will be walking a lot, and while you want to look cute, don’t suffer for fashion. Put some ballet flats on and keep trucking. It’s not worth the blisters.

7. A Sense of Irony – Hipsters are everywhere. They love nineties pop music, Saved by the Bell paraphernalia, anything with forest creatures embroidered on it. Why? I don’t know. But I’m learning to embrace it.

8. GPS – Whether in your phone or in your rental car (seriously, don’t rent a car – there’s nowhere to park here) it helps when you can map your way to the nearest Starbucks to recharge.

9. A little black dress – It’s versatile and doesn’t take up a lot of space in your suitcase. Fashion changes so frequently here, but no matter what, you can always count on a little black dress.

10. A bored expression – I was watching someone juggle fire in the Village last week and people passing by didn’t even look up from their phones. True story. If standing out as a tourist bothers you (which it shouldn’t!) just look bored and blend right in.
