Our pre-trip NYC countdown!

<—–Our last visit to Tasti-d-Lite…a New York institution on par with Junior’s Cheesecake and the Cosmopolitan, but with only 10 skinny calories per ounce! Amanda indulges in a LG favorite: Milky Way with chocolate sprinkles, to be eaten on the run.

Ahhh….pedicure! We got ours whenever possible at Cindy’s Nails on the Upper West Side. Here, Jen prepares for one of our last big nights on the town by get her toes painted with Opi’s “It Now or Never” polish. —->

<—–Holly getting “fluffed” at our first Lost Girls photo shoot. We had real photographers and props and a makeup artist and everything!

Jen says farewell to her fabulous VH1 coworkers (Courtney and Catherine, from left) at the Lost Girls Bon Voyage Party.

Holly (bless her cotton socks!) helps Jen and Amanda take nine enormous boxes of stuff eight city blocks to a UPS Store…using nothing more than a few furniture dollies. We owe you one, sister.—–>
