Experiences are the chapters of life that shape lifestyles and make us who we are. Stepping out of your door to feel the breeze caress your face as you scope your surroundings and soak it in. Today is a new day. The steps we take are the moving force to what the rest of the body will experience – the sights, the smells, the sounds.
You control the direction, so walk purposefully.
Spent the weekend soaking in a bit of luxury at The Quin Hotel. Met with friend (and incredible blogger & photographer) Elma – the day started with coffee and croissants and evolved into shots from porch to windowsill. The company and setting couldn’t have been better for the afternoon.
Light was pouring in through the ample windows of the spacious 3-story penthouse, and the forecasted rain showers held off as if just for us until the very last moments. The air smelt fresh and new over the rush of the city – a rare and treasured experience in the heart of NYC. Almost as if escaping into retreat in another dimension, one could have spent endless days taking in the view from the height of the pristine balcony overlooking Central Park.
Indoors I found myself purposefully lost in an alabaster marble oasis complete with rain shower and a freestanding tub. A minimalist’s dream of opulent statements within the restraints of monochrome elegance. These are the moments you could let life slow for just a moment and allow yourself to breath.
Dear New York City, you have a piece of my heart. The city and people seem almost closer so far below. A community of independent lives walking purposefully forward, backward and every direction. Always moving but never lost.
