I had the good fortune of living in New York City from June 2013 to June 2014. It was a very interesting year and I did a very good job enjoying what the city has to offer.  Shows, ballets, operas, theatre, parks, restaurants, shops and museums and more museums. The past week (a month since I moved back to Los Angeles) I went back for 5 days and I had the weird feeling that those 12 months never really happened, although the familiarity with the streets, the corners, the smells, was intact.

Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Los Angeles and my life here, but it is always good to go back and be a visitor in The City.

Two of the highlights were going to see the Musical If/Then with the extraordinary Idina Menzel and having a nice lunch at Gramercy Tavern by myself (an amazing spinach and mushrooms lasagna). The show was surprisingly moving and smart. I never cried so hard during a live performance. Ever.

At the theatre I ran into my dear friend Elizabeth Tramontozzi, and it was her birthday. It was a lovely surprise and it reminded me how serendipity can bring us sparks of happiness if we are open to it.

In the photos I am wearing skinny jeans and blazer by TopMan, a shirt by Benetton and boots by Prada. It is not easy to dress for the heat in New York City during the summer.
