East Coast Experiences

I’m in a very Virginia state of mind.



The south gets some zen.handstandsInRichmond

My last 2 days of NYC consisted of roaming the streets, trying a Yoga to the People class, tasting Filipino food, and engaging in the most diverse of conversations.

Before flying home yesterday, I got to assist my friend Tom in a Calvin Klein makeup photo shoot.



Fashion shoot food is incredible. I couldn’t help but be the rebel who dug in first.



Almost too pretty to eat.


The generous Calvin Klein reps wouldn’t let me leave without a bag full of products.

I’m excited to try some of the lipsticks after seeing famous makeup artist Jodie doll up the ladies, like Sarah from Josie Loves Blog.


Once the shoot was over, I kissed New York goodbye and hopped the plane to Richmond, Virginia.

That sinking sadness appeared when it was time to leave the city. In a strange way, I love that sadness, even though it’s difficult. It’s like my own little exploration of life’s adventures.

I filled my NYC void with a fiesta of a dinner that said nacho time for sadness.


The more we experience, the more we accept. Experience births acceptance. I may not have an issue with saying goodbye now since I’ve said it so many times amid my travels. Patience though, is something I have to work on, because I’m used to being overly-assertive and clearing paths for that which I desire. It goes without saying that whatever we perceive as difficult is just a less experienced action.

You never really need to say goodbye because the memory forever endures.


Rushing minds, fluid walks, the hum of dialect. I find myself wanting to talk to everyone here. Who are you? Have you gotten hit by a car? Lost in the subway? The stories are boundless. I love knowing any day I can waltz out to the streets filled with people absorbed in their own worlds, making my world a tiny hair of the dog. 😉

I’ll see you again soon, New York and perhaps for a much longer stay.

What better way to lose your worries than in the masses of chaos?

And there’s always room for growth when you invert.


I see my path, but I don’t know where it leads. Not knowing where I’m going is what inspires me to travel it.” -Rosalia de Castro

Happy hump day friends.
