New York New York! What can be said that already hasn’t?
This was my third visit to New York, and it seems that one really cannot tire of the big apple. It’s like every visit shows a new side of the city that has yet to be explored and seen. I went for the weekend and it might have done the trick for my wanderlust, for now!
Friday night was Times Square night. All those lights and people is really amusing to chill around in, unless you don’t do well in crowds. The stores there remain open till 2am which was horrifying yet amazing at the same time. Omg best part, saw Seth Rogan filming his Christmas movie!!! Needless to say, I was quite excited lol
Saturday was spent wandering down to Madison square garden. Hitting up the Empire State Building, then walking down 5th to union square and into the flatiron district was really nice. It’s really helpful that most squares also offer free wifi, making it really nice for social media-internet addicts to connect on the go. Eataly is a really nice cafe by Madison square garden with really yummy desserts so I would def recommended going there.
Sunday was the lazy day at Central Park. I love Central Park, it really shows the juxtaposition between the hyper urban metropolis of the city and the relaxing nature of the park. In some parts, you would honestly think you aren’t in New York City anymore. Walking through the park can easily take up half a day, maybe more if you are going at a more lewisite pace. I managed to get half way through before I remembered that Laudree was near by and went off to get some macaroons. Opps. Ending the day by shopping on Lexington and dinner at Times Square was nice.
Inspired from Jenay Ross, so I figured I would give it a try :) I tag all of u! lol

HOPING things work out. MARVELING at new music discoveries. NEEDING a massage. SMELLING fresh flowers. WEARING tank top and palazzo pants FOLLOWING my heart and my gut. NOTICING character flaws. KNOWING myself more. THINKING about making a proper blogging schedule BOOKMARKING lifestyle blogs. OPENING a million files for projects. GIGGLING at sloth and wombat pictures FEELING overwhelmed but excited.
Mani Monday is back! After almost a whole summer off (lazy summer and basking in sunshine takes it’s toll) I’m back with this weekly post!
With summer almost over (darn you Canadian bipolar weather) it seems that autumn is not far which made me feel like I really need to have a proper nude polish. The kind that doesn’t wash out my hands but still looks clean and cute. Lo and behold, the Sally Hanson in Grey-T escape. I found that this one works the best with my skin and it has a slight pinkish yet grey hue.
The air is turning crisp, the breezes are no longer warm and it seems that the hustle of morning traffic will soon be including children heading back to school. I’ve mentioned the importance of doing a spring cleaning round once before, but if you decided to skip it in spring, maybe give it a try to prepare for the fall. Continue reading →
