Today marks the third week of my collaboration with 7FAM jeans! (You can read all about my first and second week and resolutions here and here.) With all the traveling I’ve been doing lately, I’m finding that as much as I need to leave this lovely city from time to time, I also need to start taking more advantage of what it has to offer. There are so many restaurants and bars I haven’t tried, that are literally around the corner from my apartment, and there are certain museums and even monuments that, even though I have lived in New York for 8 1/2 years, I still have not been to. So I’ve decided that I need to take a few weekend staycations, where I visit places like the Transit Museum, BAM and International Center of Photography or enjoy a glass of wine at Blue Ribbon Downing Street Bar and eat at The Little Owl. Basically, vacationing and exploring in my very own city. So here’s to sticking around town! xo
P.S. The white flecks you can see on my sweater was the start of the big snow we just had!
Welcome to week two of my collaboration with 7FAM jeans! You can read all about last week and my first resolution by clicking here. But today I am introducing my second New Year’s resolution, which is to continue to travel and explore places I have always wanted to visit outside of New York City.
Last week I was lucky enough to spend five days in Copenhagen for Fashion Week. Amongst going to shows, I also went on a canal ride, visited the Royal Palace and had a tour of Georg Jensen’s studio headquarters. I spent time with new friends eating traditional Danish food, drinking wine and wandering around getting lost. It was wonderful, despite the dropping temperatures.
I know that I was extremely lucky with all the travel I was able to do in 2012 and I also know that to keep my drive, passion and ambitions strong I need to keep exploring and seeing what’s out there. Getting out of town reminds me that there is a whole big world outside of this little bubble/island we call Manhattan. And as much as I love New York City, I need to leave occasionally in order to reboot and ground myself. So, whether it’s for a long weekend upstate or for a week in another country, here’s to more traveling and exploring in 2013! xo
