Thank you again to everyone for your kind and supportive comments on my announcement that I am moving to New York City! Sorry it has been quiet on the blog this week, I headed from London to NYC last minute to go apartment hunting. The good news is I signed a lease on dream place (hurrah!) – stay tuned for the first look at, well, my first Manhattan apartment right here soon. In the meantime, I wanted to pull together some colour highlights from my five days in the city, especially all the gorgeous fall colours in and around Central Park. Click through after the jump to see all the gorgeous autumn hues!
Here I am celebrating signing the lease for my first Manhattan apartment with a bunch of balloons in my favourite hues. I used the incredible white backdrop of the World Trade Centre Transportation Hub as the background. So fun!The exterior of A.B. Biagi on Elizabeth Street is a #MakeYouSmileStyle dream store front – that yellow! It’s been really fun to start seeking out colour inspiration in a new city.I enjoyed trying to capture the buzz and blur of life in NYC with this shot; I like the synchronicity between the colour of the fall leaves and yellow taxi cabs.I stayed at the charming High Line Hotel that I found through Hotel Tonight. Did you see my quick fire interview with them earlier this week?This is a door of dreams. Am I right, or am I right?!Can you believe that I met Meghan Markle who plays Rachel Zane in Suits on the streets of NYC? As a huge fan of her and the show I was naturally very excited. Being typically British I was too embarrassed/didn’t want to disturb her. However, when three excited Chinese fans went up to her and she seemed really happy to chat, I crossed the road and said Hello. I am so pleased I did because she was super friendly and warmly welcomed my me and my heartmate to NYC.The colours! I love how the fall leaves reflected against the dark water of the reservoir in Central Park.Snapped this pretty pavement, I mean sidewalk(!), on the East Side of the Park.What a golden hour moment this was in Central Park – wow!
