In less than 12 weeks I’ll be here again. It feels like I’ve been holding my breath for months. It’s so close I can taste the canapés, touch the clothes and hug my overseas friends … electric.
I wont be alone, I have Ash. I’ll also have a great big city to explore and one of these beds to curl up in. Surrounded by charger cords, battling the internet, eating skittles and missing home at 2am.
This trip will be different from the last, I’ve grown up a little bit more. I’m a little bit smarter, a little bit stronger and a little less anxious.
This time it wont just be all about work, there will be more time. A week for FFFWeek 2013 and almost another two weeks staying with a friend at a more relaxed pace.
Sure business will get done, ultimately that’s what I’m there for… but cocktails too and shopping, lots more shopping this time. I feel like all I bought last time were shoes from Payless. I’m even up for window shopping and instagraming.
I have lots of things brewing behind the scenes that I’m crazy excited about of which I can’t utter a word but oh I sooo want to. This space will be filled with Wholefoods before you can say Fresh Salsa Verde and Tortilla chips.
Look out NYC, I’m coming back!
In June 2012 I stayed at Affinia Manhattan, the host hotel of Full Figured Fashion Week with support from TS14+ who funded part of my trip. I loved the hotel so much I’m staying there again… I hope they still have the same cute doorman!
