Getting into the spirit of Halloween, apartments and townhouses in NYC transformed into their own personal House of Horrors this past week.
(Nothing scares me more than the woods though. I’ve probably seen too many bad 80’s movies or was traumatized by the Blair Witch Project—either way, I hate the woods, especially after dark, and avoid them at all costs.)
These flowers are all over Manhattan right now and I adore them. Just another thing that makes me happy that Fall has arrived. I really am loving the cooler weather. Ask me that in a few more weeks and I’m sure my feelings will have changed.
I viewed Regarding Warhol at the Met a few years ago and it’s still to this day the best exhibit I’ve ever been to. Living or dead, the one person I would like to have dinner with is, and always has been, Andy Warhol. Sorting through old files on my computer is almost always a good time.
This gigantic blinged-out CNN sculpture serves as a reminder that modern media is sometimes a spectacle in itself. With the upcoming presidential election a year away, the “entertainment” is already in full force.

I walked down to One World Trade Center last night from Chelsea (with a pit stop at a very divey bar in the West Village.) It’s become a yearly tradition to walk along the Westside Highway every year and gaze up at the twin lights, which are so bright that they appear to be shining into infinity. This year was special as there was access to the memorial park at night, so visitors could leave flowers and pay respects at the water fountains. It was highly emotional, too much to put into words even.
I still haven’t been up on the observation deck at One World Trade yet, but it’s high on my to-do list.
One of the exciting things about visiting the Wynwood Arts District is that new art pops up all the time. I fell in love with this mural by New York-based artist Logan Hicks when I visited last month. The details blew me away—his unique style captures multiple layers and intricacies very precisely. I was in Miami and felt myself being transported into the romanticized version of the dreamy streets of SoHo. You can learn more about Logan Hicks and his work here.
I was walking along Madison last night with my mind in the clouds until I spotted this mushroom clutch and stopped suddenly in my tracks. It’s the best accessory I’ve seen around New York in months—Lewis Carroll would certainly approve.
Here are a few photos I took at the Wynwood Art District from my recent visit to Miami. Some highlights of the trip include the artwork, swimming in the ocean, several trips to my favorite bakery and the overall energy of Miami – cue the beats of Truffle Butter.
