And so it begins, NYC & Me. A romantic, intoxicating, inspiring journey; and all at once. Just like that, a beautiful chapter of my life closes just as another one opens. Quite simply, it’s time. I remember the minute it dawned on me that we’d be living in NYC soon. I was in New York last January in my hotel room, watching the snow fall from my 9th floor hotel room room overlooking Soho. Have you ever felt that sense of awakening energy, yet surrounded by complete calm and stillness? It was a moment and I knew in that moment, it was time.

When I was in the 7th grade, I had a public speaking class. We had to memorize a song and present it like it was a speech. I memorized the song, ‘Sunscreen,’ by Baz Luhrmann – if you’ve never heard it, please click here now – you will live a happier life having listened to it and it’s how I live mine. Many of those lyrics become truer and truer as the days go by, but one that stuck with me the most was;

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard;
Live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

After growing up in beautiful Northern California and then nearly a decade in Los Angeles, I began to feel a bit stagnant in my life. Don’t get my wrong, there will always be a huge place in my heart for the endless amount of beach days, warm afternoons, and general overall laid-back vibe.

I guess I’m just ready for a new challenge. A desire to meet new people, embrace strangers on the street, attempt to get groceries home without a car, wonder if I will be warm enough in two jackets instead of one, take leisurely strolls through parks and enjoy my coffee on a park bench, house hunt, buy a home, discover new favorite local spots, and best of all, I’ll be just a hop, skip, and a jump away from my dear Pari’.

With that, NYC & Me was born. A more personal and intimate monthly series that will offer you an in-depth look at my journey. You guys, we’re buying a cozy New York property for the first time! It’s completely overwhelming what we’ve learned in just the last month alone. I’ve been on Photoshop redesigning floor plans, stalking the MLS every second of the day (yes, I have alerts set) and pinning every Parisian style apartment inspiration you can imagine. And I know you’re wondering, but no, we haven’t found “the one” yet. It’s going to be a process, but we have time and I am a somewhat patient person.

Hopefully, this will be me in 3 – 6 months.

Until the next NYC & Me!

Huge congrats on your move! I visited NYC a few months ago and I fell head over heels for it. I live in California too so I know how different it is. Definitely looking forward to your new series!

Thank you so much! Both are amazing places <#

omg I remember the sunscreen song!! that was the best and I always loved that line too! i’m hoping in the next couple of years to spend an entire summer there, at least it’s at the top of my list of places to live during the summer!

so funny hearing it again right?!

I love so much your new more personal series NYC&me and I keep my fingers crossed for you with all the plans and new challenges. And I also admit that up to some point I’m so glad that now your new outfit ideas will become more wearable for me as I live in Poland where the weather is similar to that in NYC, not Los Angeles. Seeing you wearing cute faux fur jackets with pom pom beanies and winter boots makes a really huge difference, plus you can feel how it’s to be parisian in winter times (that’s the thing I always ask myself about when it’s oh so cold and you want to look oh so chic). Bisous*

Aw yay, what a sweet note, Veronica! I’m so glad you’re feeling inspired from the new content. As am I!
