Food for thought. Now enjoy some snapshots of NYC taken over the past week in the frigid air but beautiful sun. 🙂
100% obsessed with NYC street art…
Hustle hard. Obviously, because goals.
Nothing is weird in NYC.
Everything that’s considered different or weird or against cultural or social norms elsewhere in the USA, is just straight up blasé in NYC.
The strong smell of coffee as you walk down the street. Or urine. Normal.
Is it because there is such diversity here and that everyone is a little bit “different,” that the totally completely weird shit just blends right in?
Don’t even talk to me about the basics. They blend so far in to the scenery that it’s as if they’re invisible.
But that crazy couple you see on the subway, you glance at for a quick sec but then immediately go back to doing whatever you were doing before because:
1. It’s rude to stare and they may actually DO something about it.
2. It’s not actually that out of the ordinary that there are people in NYC that are behaving as strangely as they are.
Leading to my conclusion that nobody here is weird. Everyone has their own style and their own way of life that it’s all “just the way it is.” This is definitely why NYC is so diverse.
I’m still blatantly confused on how and why racism still exists. Especially in New York City. Based on all of the recent riots, police activity, activists and protesters in this city; racism is obviously still evident and relevant. I am at a point why I don’t understand how or why. Like – everyone coexists here – let people with different or opposing beliefs than you have, be. Let them go. Let them be. You don’t have to associate with them if you don’t want to. That’s the beauty of living in this beautiful city full of opportunities and growth and change. You can do you and they can do them.
So as I mildly observe that “strange” couple on the subway looking and almost begging for attention, I then immediately briefly glance at my phone and easily look away. Because I’m not phased by them and don’t care enough to make a face at them or really give any facial expression whatsoever. Maybe that’s the rude New Yorker in me. Maybe that’s what this city does to people. Who’s to say, really? Just the thoughts of one random girl taking whatever interesting experiences I can from this lively, diverse and exceptionally
weird perfect city we all know and love, NYC.
On Wednesday night, we headed to the #LolëWhiteTour, put on by Lolë Women. It was held on The Great Lawn of Central Park in Manhattan and it was a breathtaking, beautiful, inspiring and enlightening experience. Over 10,000 yogis participated and the message of peace was uplifting and so positive. Everyone dressed in white for the color of peace.
Lolë holds events all over the world and this year New York City was one of the chosen places. The white tour is a free event (ticketed lottery style) so really anybody can attend. Upon arrival, 10,000 yoga mats were perfectly lined up in rows surrounding a large stage with mini stages all around the sides. Musical performer Ingrid Michaelson was a special guest. ❤
Check out some of my/my friends photos below!
A helicopter above captured some amazing shots of The Great Lawn with all of the yogis – looks awesome, see below.
Cannot wait to participate in upcoming Lolë events!
The Brooklyn Museum just closed a particularly awesome exhibit on March 1st titled, “Killer Heels.” I viewed last week and had a great time wandering the museum by myself with my iPhone gawking over all of these beautiful versions of heels from past and present. Video describing the exhibit is below.
Breakfasts recently. 1 egg yolk, 2 egg whites, 1/4 cup sparkling water, 1/2 cup oatmeal, cinnamon (LOTS!) cook on low heat in a small pan with cooking spray. Serve with sugar free maple syrup. Yum diet food ❤

Love in the star signs. Great. ❤

Inspiring quote about acceptance, being content with what we have and being in control of our wants and needs.
