Hello from New York!
I have had such a memorable time here with my pals. I can’t wait to share with all of you the exciting new project we have been working on!
While going in and out of meetings, I tried to take some candid snaps around town of some of the things that made me smile. Although it was cold (really cold!), NYC was still very much buzzing with it’s contagious energy that had us all feeling super happy!
This is me trying to be all artsy with my i-Phone as I captured this quick pic of one of my fave buildings in NY, the Flatiron building. So gorge. So unique. Love it.
But, I must say that this stunning Spider-Man view from the 17th Floor of the Simon & Schuster Building I will never forget. What an unforgettable sight.
Now, this label says it all because everything about this juice is “Sweet & Dandy!” I had two of these a day. Totally obsessed.
For more of a hearty taste, we had a celebratory lunch at the Blue Ribbon sushi restaurant inside The Thompson Hotel. Look at this presentation! It was some of the best fish I ever had, beyond fresh.
Long days turn into late night power dinners inside our hotel room. It is such a luxury to dine in the comfort of your own hotel room. I bet you want to know what is under the lid?
New York was not the only place that had my attention. Let’s jump back to Hollywood and talk about the Academy Awards that aired tonight on ABC! WOW-wee! If you are passionate about movies, fashion and art than I hope you appreciated the Oscars just as much as I did.
From Jared Leto’s inspiring speech to the beautiful words from Lupita Nyong’o, I was truly touched! Here is my favorite line from Lupita’s speech (please share!).
We also need to give big props to Ellen for being such an entertaining host. Can you believe this is now the most retweeted picture of all time?!
It is time for me to start packing! Ugh.
