I always feel energized when I get back from New York. Not only is this city a visual feast (jackpot territory for a girl with a camera) but there’s also this underlying current running through it – a kind of palpable earnestness in the pace of the people that I find really addictive. Especially now. Lately, I’ve been struggling with working from home. I seriously miss the stimulation and camaraderie of working with fellow creatives. When I moved my studio into my home a few years back I guess I never anticipated the impact it would have on my creativity. Brainstorming with a party of one is definitely tough. I  do like things completely quiet when I’m writing, but the truth is, sometimes it’s just too quiet. Thankfully, New York is anything and everything but.

With that in mind, this week on the blog it’s all about New York- the people, places and things that made this trip truly memorable – stories and more that I hope will inspire and entertain you.

I’ll tell you about my evening with French fashion blogger Garance Dore and her partner, Scott Schuman, famed for his street style blog, The Sartorialist, and introduce you to a New Yorker whose essence I know you will love. That and more coming this week. And since we’re talking about New York, do you have any NYC tales you’d like to share?
