So the worst thing happened to me last week...I know worst things could have happened but for someone on vacation it's probably the worst thing that could have happened to me. Melodrama aside...my mac's hard drive fried on me! yes! All of my holiday pictures from fashion week, cape cod, boston and blog lovin pics with Karla from Karla's closet:( and my pictures from my interview with Maisonette designer Jane Ibrahim...so there. That's my excuse for not blogging. Luckily i didn't delete some photo's from my camera, unfortunately the mac doctor told me it's going to cost about $900 to retrieve my files :( I'd rather buy Chloe boots.
Good thing i didn't loose this pic... wearing Kenneth Cole flapper dress, Witchery cardigan, Aldo boots, mimco bag
I have this fascination for colleges here in the states, I blame it solely on movies i have watched such as Legally Blonde, beautiful mind, good will hunting, the graduate...it could be the the nerd in me. We visited Harvard the other day, and I can't help but feel intelligent for simply being here (ha!), I was captivated by the history, architecture and tradition that swept through the place...how the students made their way around the campus with a sense of belonging. I love it so much so that i had to buy a college sweater...dork...Well as a souvenir?
I'm back in NYC for another week, and already I'm feeling terribly homesick, I can't wait to sleep in my own bed again. Anyway it's 4 am and I really must go to bed. Off to Coney Island tomorrow with the boys...Beso!

When we got here in Boston it was raining heavily, with no closed shoes in my suitcase i made my way to Aldo to find some comfortable shoes to walk on. Hence i found these awesome distressed leather boots...aren't they great?I wore them with this oversized shirt dress from NYC...so so comfortable. Just a quick post today, just got back from Cape Cod and really tired...have a lovely day! Beso:)
I think the biggest problem for girls when traveling is what to pack. In preparation for my trip , I managed to cull my items into a capsule of 10 pieces. As much as i was proud of myself for doing so, my main goal was to have as much space for new items I was going to buy. This soon backfired when i realised i had nothing to wear...i basically brought with me my nude stack heel, flats , a pair of jeans,trousers, some tops, underwear and 4 dresses....big mistake when your going away for 3 weeks or so....tsk tsk never again.
Anyway i soon fixed that problem and stimulated the New York economy by paying a visit to a few stores i have become very fond of ha ha. However my stay in the East Village was short lived to make way for a couple of days in Boston. On our last morning, i woke Ant up and showed him the rooftop of the building we were staying at.... after the rain ...the morning sky was a sight to behold. The views were breathtaking, i still can't get over how beautiful the skyline is and how I've grown accustomed to the NYC fire-escape staircases that hug most buildings around the city...I find it quaint and charming.....bye for now, going to Cape Cod in the morning. Beso!
Was fortunate enough to get a seat to this show thanks to Jane. The clothes were light and pretty. It made me feel like rolling in the grass....On the even awesome side i got my hair done at the Tresemme counter and won the massive product box wherein you pick a key to open. I guess won't be purchasing any hair products very soon...We soon got so hungry and found Knickerbocker steakhouse near NYU.....steaks that melt in your mouth....ahhh what a day!
What I'm finding really cool in New York is that there's always something cool or interesting to look at. Just in my block alone, I could probably spend the entire day sitting in the front steps people watching and listening to conversations about their daily lives....like a social zoo per se. We spent the whole day walking...and walking. I was pretty pleased with myself with how much walking I've done here...and i mean lots! We walked from East Village to Soho, from Soho to the Brooklyn Bridge and finally Brooklyn bridge to Battery Park to visit Lady Liberty. We were pretty please with ourselves today that we reached the crown of the Statue of Liberty, having booked months ago, we were able to skip the lines and go straight to the top! That was probably the highlight of my day...til tomorrow Beso!

I loved this girls outfit, she was waiting for a cab in the financial district
There's something about this city i'm falling in love with... I got here in the middle of the night and all i could really see was lights, hidden shadows and steaming sidewalks. I'm just excited to be here. I think it could be all the movies I watched growing up creating an impression of what New York would be like...When Harry met Sally, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Godfather, Trading Places and so on. Today was my first day to step out into the streets and absorb the sunlight. and it hasn't disappointed....it's been a sensory overload, eating, listening, smelling...Ant and I did the biggest walk ever ( well the most I've walked without gym clothes) We walked from East village to St Patrick's Cathedral stopping at some awesome sights along the way and of-course I met Saks oh...and many more friends I will pay a visit in this coming fortnight...it's 11:34pm I'm starving...off to get some pizza..til tomorrow...good night!
