New Yorker Moments

Bermuda by UsedYorkCity.com

Sunshine!  Flowers!  The return of trench coats and ballet flats!  (Can you tell someone is a little bit happy about spring finally making it’s gorgeous appearance in the Big Apple?) To kick things off we traveled to Bermuda for the long Easter weekend, an amazing little paradise and less than a 2 hour flight from […]

{weekend getaway to long island’s oheka castle} Maybe because it’s a month without any proper long weekends or vacations (my inner-school marm is coming out), or maybe it’s because the longer days and sunlight gives the illusion that it SHOULD be light-jacket-wearing spring (which any New Yorkers can definitely attest a resounding no to), but […]

New Yorker Moments: So You Wanna Wear Your Wedding Dress Twice…

UsedYorkCity.com

Let’s call a spade a spade: I wanted an excuse to wear my wedding dress twice.  (Kidding!)  But seriously, having a secret elopement on a rooftop in NYC with only our chihuahua and parents, and then keeping it hush-hush for 5 whole months (ekkk!), and surprising our guests with the video of our ceremony at […]

What a month!  We kicked off 2014 touring Southeast Asia on our honeymoon, which the hubby managed to keep a secret until we arrived at JFK to the gate for Singapore.  For an over-planner like me, this was seriously the best idea ever, because I didn’t have to organize, stress, or think about a thing […]

New Yorker Moments: Small Traditions

UsedYorkCity.com

I’ve been reading a lot of New Year’s resolutions on various blogs this month (so inspiring!), so wanted to share my simple resolution intention for 2014. Make meaningful, small traditions. Growing up, traditions were always huge in my house: from big ones like sitting on the hearth with my sisters every Christmas morning in our […]

{fun flea market finds}

{fun flea market finds} Even after living in the city for 8+ years, I still delight in “NYC Firsts”.  This weekend marked one: perusing the Hell’s Kitchen Flea Market!  We took advantage of the unseasonably warm weekend and had my favorite kind of Sunday, brunch followed by strolls and just a tiny bit of shopping. […]

{my sleepy little cutedog hot dog} Happy Halloween, readers!  It’s hard to believe October is practically over, fall is flying by in a blur, for sure!  Tonight I’m taking a breaky-break and plan on hunkering down on the couch with a scary movie + adult candy (i.e. Scream + champagne sprinkled with Pop Rocks) for […]

New Yorker Moments

I celebrated my birthday this week, which meant lots of my very favorite thing: the theater! (in case there was any confusion about why I moved to NYC in the first place).  From interactive Shakespeare’s creepy Macbeth, to Disney’s upbeat movie-turned-musical that I was obsessed with at age 10, I’m delighted to say that 31 […]

New Yorker Moments

Confession: most of my non-working hours this last week have been spent obsessively binging on this little Netflix gem called Orange Is The New Black.  Anyone heard of it?;-)  Thankfully, there was only one season to sit through, or positively nothing else would have gotten accomplished at all, work included. Have you ever been completely […]
