Happy Thanksgiving!

Family. How can one describe this inarguably most dynamic union... There is a whole array of feelings at any given moment: we feel limitless love for each other, we feel like we need a break from each other, we depend on each other, we get mad at each other, we feel each other's pain and we try to make each other a better person. No matter what your family is like, remember that they are the people who have, do and always will love you; they are the people who will be by your side when you most need it, the people who you can count on during any situation life throws you in and the people you can trust and share your deepest, craziest secrets and ideas. At least that is how my family is and I am infinitely grateful for that!

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone! May your families always stay strong, united, happy and joyful! Have a beautiful holiday!

Tourist

The other day I was having a very touristy weekend. You know those things you know are in New York but you always try to avoid because the whole tourist population of NYC is usually there? At the same time, you have a longing to try those things, at least once – just so you can say: “Yep, I’ve done it.” A few weekends back I visited the Madame Tussauds museum. I have heard a lot of people complain about how the wax figures look nothing like their models in reality; however, I thought they were great! Especially when you consider the amount of work that goes into making each figure. According to the website, it takes over 800 hours of moulding, measuring, painting and sculpting to replicate each Hollywood A-Lister. Please note that the pictures do not give them justice, as the lighting and camera flashes spoil the effect; but either way, it is definitely an experience that is worth committing to!

Hey, Hollywood

Living in New York you get to ‘travel’ to various parts of the country, various geographical destinations and various times. There are restaurants and stores from all around the world, there are museums and galleries with exhibitions going back a number of decades, and the list goes on and on.
Two weekends ago I held a Halloween party at my apartment, the first party I organized in almost a year and a half of living in my apartment. My chosen theme, Hollywood Night, allowed me to immerse into the glitz and glamour of Hollywood and the process of planning the event, obtaining all necessary party ‘ingredients’ and decorating the apartment was the most fun.
