Phew, what a week! Needless to say there are all sorts of emotions happening across the United States right now. I must say I was in shock when I woke up on Wednesday. Complete shock. This blog is by no means a platform for delving into my political views and I respect those of others, but I must say what got me through this past week was seeing people speak up for what is fair and what is right. It gives me hope that for the next four years we will all look out for each other. Love always wins.
This week marked the release of Shop The City: A Shopping Guide to New York City. I am excited to finally have this downloadable shopping guide available for you! Believe it or not, I have been working on this guide for the past two years. Putting the finishing touches on it and launching it this past week was thrilling. Coincidentally, the NYTimes had a special feature this week called ‘Shop New York’ as shown above. A sign from the Universe? I think so.
Also, I had the opportunity to chat with Shannon from The Simply Luxurious Life again. On her podcast The Simple Sophisticate we talked about how to shop sales and New York City. Be sure to check out it (psst, there is a special STC Guide promo code for her listeners).
