If you guys remember from this post, back in January I was lucky enough to travel to Copenhagen with ECCO for Copenhagen Fashion Week, alongside amazing company from MarieClaire.com, Refinery 29 and Boston Fashionista. We spent our time learning all about ECCO and how their products are made. We saw the changing of the guards and toured Georg Jensen’s headquarters. We dined at wonderful places like Madklubben Steak and The Royal Cafe, and tried out “Nordic tapas” with wine. And, we of course found time for some shopping where I found the most amazing gray leather vest at a little consignment boutique just off the Strøget. All in all, it was a wonderful trip and I left loving ECCO and Copenhagen even more than before. Thank you to everyone at ECCO for a fantastic trip!
So now, as a fun treat for you guys, ECCO is giving a way one of the three bags above! All you have to do to enter, is leave your name and email in the comment section below along with which bag you would like to win. I will be picking a winner one week from today and will notify you via email. Thanks and good luck! xo
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
