Just over a month ago, a dream of mine to attend New York Fashion Week came true. Just days before I flew to NYC, opportunity to attend a few shows were presented to me that I could not pass up. Myself and my friend who resides in Los Angeles, Erica from www.erienick.com, packed our bags, booked a last minute flight and set off to the city that truly never sleeps.
The past two weeks I touched on my recent trip to the big apple in a three part series: Where I Ate & Where I Stayed. Today, the final post in my #NYFW series, is what I was truly was up to besides cafe hoping!read more
A few weeks back, myself and my friend, Erica from www.erienick.com, headed to NYC for fashion week. Due to the fact that we were both leaving the comfort of our homes for an entire week and that NYFW is notorious for being hectic and busy…..a comfortable place to rest between our busy schedules was a must! After searching online and scrolling Instagram relentlesy, 1 Hotel Central Park consistently caught our eyes as the only option!
1 Hotel has three different locations: Central Park, South Beach and now a new location next to the Brooklyn Bridge. Staying at a 1 Hotel is a different experience than previous hotels I have stayed at…..and that’s truly an under statement. For one thing, the hotel is located just minutes from Central Park…enough said! However, in addition to the perfect location, 1 Hotels are focused on bringing an ‘at one with nature’ experience to all of their guests. Reclaimed wood and 100% organic cotton is used throughout their hotel, their food is solely farm-to-fork and if that wasn’t enough….the hotel has complimentary rides for their guests in Tesla electric vehicles. This last fact is what I plan to use to persuade my husband for future stays……shhhhh……he has a thing for Tesla’s and anything and everything that is environmentally friendly.read more
A few weeks prior a dream of mine came true…I attended New York Fashion Week (#NYFW) for the first time. Ever since I started my blog last November (the 1 year anniversary is coming up..whoot whoot), I made it a goal of mine to attend the iconic week of fashion. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that day would happen so soon…pinch me!read more
If you have been following me on social media for the past week, then you would have noticed that I have been galavanting in NYC. I am officially back in Canada and will be back to my normal posting schedule as of today! I am sorry for the lack of posts on www.blarejune.com the past week, I am usually quite consistent but the opportunity to attend New York Fashion Week was somewhat last minute and to say my schedule was jam packed while in the Big Apple would be an understatement. Please forgive me!read more
Every summer I try to stay local and explore some of the beautiful landmarks our home province has to offer. Recently, in partnership with TELUS, I listed my Top 5 Weekend Getaway Locations Across Nova Scotia. This past weekend, I decided to pack my car and head to one of Nova Scotia’s most cherished gems. Although all of the destinations are equally as enticing, Ingonish was the option that consistently came out on top while planning. During this last-mintue getaway, I was thankfully able to squeeze in all of my favorite summer rituals…..and all within a single weekend. I spent a day at the beach, I went for an evening sail and I ate a large amount of ice cream that could last me a lifetime. This summer has been a busy one as I have worked the majority of the time. Thankfully, after my weekend in Ingonish and being able squeeze in every classic summer activity, I now feel fulfilled until next summer.read more
