Now I'm in New York, New York!

Being in NYC is a whole new adventure compared to the other cities I've lived.  I moved here in October and can honestly say I feel right at home.  Everyone in NY is in just as big of a hurry as I always am, and I think that's part of why I love it so much.  I've figured out all of my favorite places to shop and eat that nowhere else in the country compares.  I wake up early (even on my days off) because there is so much to see and do that I'd hate to waste a single minute.  Or, maybe I wake up early because of the sirens blasting outside my window at any given moment. Learning the subway was tricky at first, it's much the same is the L in Chicago, but  I'd rather walk or hail a cab.  The subway is kind of creepy to me- especially when it gets jammed up under the river with all of those people on board.

Oh, and shopping and fashion is truly infectious here- I've become somewhat addicted to buying new clothes in Soho.   Woops!  Love NYC fashion, especially in the fall time. 

Aside from learning the city, I've been been reading a lot of great new books since I've been spending so much time on an airplane- a lot on the subject of health and nutrition written by some very reputable Dr's..  I think everyone should pick up a book on eating healthy and how our bodies process the things we put into it. It's especially interesting to learn what artificial sweeteners and energy drinks do to our bodies over time!  What we feed your bodies is so important, even if you're not a model or trying to lose weight...  Ok, I'm done preechin'.

And lastly, here are a few pics I took on my new camera.  I just bought a Canon G12, and totally love it.  I can't take a bad picture with it!

The sidewalk outside of my apartment at 6am.  I was just getting back from an early flight and the lighting was so pretty... and barely any people! 

I am obsessed, although I haven't had one yet because I'm always having to shoot in swimwear and I know these are off limits for me!  Crumbs Cupcake shop, the best cupcakes I've ever seen.
