If you know me – you know that I used to have a serious planning problem – like I thought I would be married by 22 and have a house in Malibu with 2 black Great Danes – planning problem – which is weird since I’m from California where people tend to go with the flow. I still keep my list of life goals, places to see, restaurants to try amongst other random things – I’m just more independent and open minded to where my life is going to take me from here on out- I learned to live in the moment and seize the day every day.
My advice – take it or leave it – is that life is an adventure and you shouldn’t try to plan too much – do what you are passionate about, love who and what you want every single day and HAVE FUN. This day wasn’t planned but it was a perfect series of events that I spent with my friends so I thought I would share it with you so you could enjoy some of my favorite spots in NYC.
But first, an outfit;)

1. Brunch at Bubby’s in Meatpacking,
Make sure to try to one of their famous Bloody Mary’s.
2. The Whitney Museum
3. Santina – my new favorite restaurant right outside the Whitney Museum.
It’s in my top 5 new favorite restaurants. Perfect ambiance, food, drinks and location. (Aka it’s close to my apartment).
4. The Gansevoort Market
It’s like an upscale version of Smorgasborg. Get some coffee or a sweet treat – they have the best of everything NYC has to offer.
5. Gansevoort Rooftop for sunset.
When we went here on a Sunday afternoon there was a live band and it was pretty magical. I will never forget that night.
6. Soho Grand Hotel
I love quiet nights here (and sometimes starting my crazy nights here too) – the lounge makes you feel right at home with the luxe couches and rich decor. Not to mention their drink and food menu is most likely your jam.
Inspirations of the day:
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.”
— Oprah Winfrey
“The one word that makes a good manager – decisiveness.”
— Lee Iacocca
“Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”
