Entries in New York (38)
(buy this gorgeous photo here (sans wording)).
One of the only good things about having a husband who travels a lot is that I get to travel with him. A lot. And the insane miles and points we live off of.
So this morning I'm off to New York for a couple nights, narrowly missing the fashion week mayhem.
And New York is one of my favorite places to visit. It's just electric... it's always in motion and colorful and feels special and exciting. At least for me. I've never been sure about living there but I am 100% in love with visiting at regular intervals.
Here's my mini-guide to some of what a 'beauty' person does when in town.
Along with nails, hair, waxing, meeting with PRs and all that other stuff, I will...
Maybe pick a new scent from here.
Perhaps meet up with a brilliant makeup artist friend.
Stop here to pick up some of their skincare, newly launched in the US.
Eat dinner here.
Love this series of illustrations a little bit more with each visit.
Try (*gulp*) this.
Stay here so we're close to the Hub's work.
I think that's all I'll have time for in a 48-hour window. If I don't sleep.

Where's your favorite place to visit?
If you're a writer, you're always looking for repetition, for snippets and tidbits to prove they're a thing. I need something to show itself to me a few times before I think it's a thing and believe it's worth writing about.
This thing I have now is definitely a thing. Mind you, I do live under a rock in Chicago in near-complete solitary confinement for most of my waking hours, so there's a (very good) chance this thing has been a thing for an age and only just arriving under my rock right now, very late. In fact I know it's been a thing but the people who are a part of this thing are having a bit of a thing renaissance after not being so thingy for a while.
In any event, it's a stylish, beautiful, fascinating thing to me all the same and I'm glad to share.
