I have now been back from New York and Nashville for a week, but I never had a chance to post these snapshots from my trip to the city that never sleeps.  The pictures I took, really do not do my trip any justice.  I had such an amazing three days in the city, that left me feeling completely inspired.  I was so lucky to have spent time with my fav cousin, catch up with two of my Aunts, and enjoy some time in Atlantic Beach with the Glam Team and some amazing bloggers-which was the actual reason why I was in New York, and I will be dishing all of the exciting things that happened soon!  

I spent the days roaming the city by myself. At first I thought I would be nervous to be alone, but there is something about New York that makes me feel confident. I walked pretty much everywhere I went from SOHO to the Upper West Side, to the Meatpacking district back to Chelsea.  I love how every area has a completely different vibe, and in each place I had a completely different experience.  

My favorite spots included dinner at ABC Kitchen– the food was incredible and the conversation was even better, Stopping by the Elizabeth and James‘ offices (thanks to all of the girls for being so nice and especially for all of the goodies). I wandered around SOHO on my last day and stopped into Paul Smith to see my cousin’s darling office- being surrounded by clothes while I worked would decrease my productivity by a million, then walked across the street to see the BaubleBar shop- and almost caved and bought one of these Sarah Chloe bangles and this pinky ring.  We grabbed a bite to eat at BREAD, which was this cute little spot in NOHO, then I headed to the Highline for the first time.  I had heard so much the amazing walkway, but seeing it myself was breathtaking. 

Are any of you lovelies from NYC?  I will be headed back there in September, and I would love any recommendations about where to go next time!

In loo of Sandy, I decided it did not feel appropriate for a regular post.  Some of my friends and family are without power and although I am enjoying 90 degrees and sunny weather, I hate to know my cousins, aunts and uncles are stuck inside without electricity for who knows how long… Everyone that has been affected by this storm, you are in my thoughts and prayers.  

A few interesting articles I read about Hurricane Sandy:

– LA Times: Hurricane Sandy is a crisis and opportunity for Obama, Romney
