new views of new york

empire state building from the brooklyn bridge

My friend Paul was in town for Memorial Day weekend. Having a visitor around is a great excuse to do some touristy things. Above is a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, you can see the empire state building peeking out between the cables.

books for May

I have just finished a new round of books and these were my favorites:

everyday necklace

necklace from amy wings design

I love a bold necklace for special occasions, but for work / life I tend to pick a delicate piece and wear it daily. This new tiny blossom by Amy Wing is perfectly pretty for day-to-day wear.

hola!

landing in cancun

I'm only about three weeks behind on posting these. My trip to Mexico in April was a blast, I spent most of my time at the beach or the pool, hanging out with my mom, nieces, sister and brother-in-law. It was a great time to get a little sun and relaxation before heading back to busy New York.

new york phenomenon

crying in new york

When I first moved to New York someone told me that you are not a New Yorker until you have cried in public. It hasn't happened to me yet, but it's something I see nearly every day (especially on the trains). I never know what to do in these situations; do I ask the person if they are okay? Most people look as though they don't want to be bothered.
