NY – I’ve been a downtown girl most of my life. Actually, I’ve been a Brooklyn, Soho, Tribeca, East Village, LES girl to be exact. I’ve raised a glass and kissed a boy or two in a good percentage of bar bathrooms in the downtown section of New York City. Things are not so rock n’ roll these days.
Two years ago, me and my cutie boyfriend decided to co-habitate in the most unlikely of places. The Upper East Side. After traversing the city, taking in the neighborhood’s food, proximity to a subway and apartment pricing, the Upper East Side afforded us everything we wanted and more. So we made the move to a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired junior one bedroom with wood floors, exposed brick, recessed lighting and 5 incredibly chic large french windows where we’ve created the perfect Cheap Chic set up to settle in to.
It took a while, one month specifically, for me to allow the opulence and luxury of my new neighborhood to flood in and once I aligned with its beauty, tree-lined streets and incredibly rich history of New York art and society, I’ve never looked back. As the creator of Cheap Chic Shopping Tours, I believe money doesn’t buy style. I buy it cheap and make it chic. And this applies to living as well. My neighborhood may be for millionaire’s, but I’ve claimed it as my own, for free. More
NY – Being a New Yorker to the fullest, I know how easy it can be to get wrapped up in the fast-paced hustle of this glorious city. Many of us love to jump from meeting to meeting all day long and fill our evenings with endless event-hopping because there is just so much fun to be had on this incredible island. With that said, my number one personal challenge is to live a life of balance, where I allow myself to relax, work and play equally. Knowing that you probably have the work and play parts of life pretty handled, I wanted to remind you how much fun taking a day for YOU can be and invite you to relax enough to recharge and feel the self-love.
