Summer in the City – Part 1

As I painted my toes this morning a blinding hot pink (Essie’s Pansy), it hit me that Summer has begun. Officially it begins this weekend with the kick off of Memorial Day. However, with the sudden tropical heat inside my apartment, the spotting of Naval Officers in town for Fleet Week. it’s already getting dangerously close to Summer in the City!  What plans do you have???

Part One of our summer travels is complete. We had an amazing time in FL with my husband’s grandparents and enjoyed Disney with my son+SIL/FIL.  The wheels of life keep spinning as I now take my son to places I went as a kid!

In preparation for Mother’s day I forced myself to go out today and fight the masses at Walgreens searching for 8 cards to send to our Moms, Grandmother’s and Aunts! Just a warning.. more than one person is getting a Mickey Mouse card thanks to my 2 yr old helping out!!

I jumpstarted my Mother’s Day Celebration this morning with a brunch and trunk show at Michael C. Fina, hosted by Big City Moms. It was such an amazing event with decadent morning bites + mimosas. Many different lines of jewelry were showcased with knowledgeable reps on hand to answer any questions. I fell in love with the Heather Moore line on the spot! Her designs were so unique and truly one of a kind. The antique(ish) charms and semi precious stones can be added, taken away, etc etc for multiple looks. I made a little note on the handy “cheat sheets” that were available for husbands and partners who have just given up on surprises!

What a Royal Day!

Hello World,
It is my greatest thrill to announce the arrival of my new blog … “Gotham Love!” I have been going around and around trying to pick the best day to jump in and it hit me this morning (earrrrrly this morning).
Today would be the day.  Today is such a great day anyway.  It’s Friday, absolutely gorgeous outside, I have been living in the city 9 yrs on this day, AND It’s a Royal Day!

The purpose of my blog will be to discuss lifestyle trends in and around NYC.  Gotham Love will be all over the map which is pretty much how I live my life anyway! I can’t wait to discuss everything from secret city finds to restaurants and must have items of the season! I’ll also be randomly discussing headlines that hit me in the moment like today! As I just mentioned….. Gotham Love will not focus on any one topic so each post will be a total surprise!

Let’s go………. Continue reading What a Royal Day!
