Your ideal Valentine’s Day

VALENTINE'S-DAY-1

VALENTINES-DAY-2

boutique on 57

As the city is covered all in snow the most romantic day is almost here. I was lucky enough to escape New York just on time to avoid another heavy snow blizzard. Some people tend to dislike “this holiday” because they say that Valentine’s Day is about spending a lot of money and blah blah blah, but if it’s supposed to be a special day then let’s make one right?

For example, I’m more than happy that I can spend some quality time with my hubby. It doesn’t matter what we do, or where we go. Some of choices could either be going out for a candlelit dinner to watch a movie, yeah, pretty cliché, (I wouldn’t reject any vegan hazelnut chocolates, which by the way, he knows those are my favorite)… but you know why? It’s because this day is all about enjoying each other’s company and most important with the man who stands by your side. Besides every day should feel like this.

This time I might try something different. It’s always a good idea to renovate the options instead of doing the same plan each year, because that will drag us to monotony, and that’s not the point here. This is the moment where couples should come up with some fresh, fun and creative plans. This Valentines Day, I am so happy to travel the whole weekend with my man; I think that always helps to take a breath of work, stress and the city. Changing scenery is mostly therapeutic and refreshing.

My best recommendation is keep it simple, little things work best. Stay away from the routine and do something fun instead. Maybe go to a spa together, or attend to a yoga class together, just something out the norm that will make it interesting. Make yourself looking extra pretty. Put some extra layer of red to initiate romantic escapes. Other than that, there are so many things to do in New York, so keep that in mind and take my advice.

Good Luck! and Happy Valentine’s Day

This was my first time attending AmFAR Gala in NY Cipriani Wall street and certainly will be one of those moments I will treasure forever. Despite low temperatures and freezing winter winds that reminded me of my native country Poland where -30C was just normal winter day the partying had to go on. The world of philanthropy and entertainment was brought together to honor and celebrate brave fight against Aids as well as kicking off opening of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Most beautiful Stars of who’s who in America lined up on the red carpet to honor and support this incredible cause. Thanks to some generous contributions $1.7 million were raised through fashion auctions and private donations to help amFar Aids research programs.  With A+ star attendance the soiree could have been easily mixed for Oscar Night or Top model reunion. My head was spinning in admiration of world’s most beautiful faces dressed in finest fashion could offer. The red carpet hangout was full of cat walk stars from Karlie Kloss, Chanel Iman, Selita Banks and Behati Prinsloo whom I rubbed shoulders for what surely was one of the most glamorous and highly anticipated annual fashion event of the year.

My Polish native Tony Award-winning actress and singer Jane Krakowski opened the stage with her beautiful cabaret singing performance and emerald green strapless dress. I was not aware the POLACK girl could sing like a real diva. Liam Neeson made a surprise appearance as presenter to Vanessa Redgrave and Joely Richardson. Legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh man of the hour was also honored, receiving his award of Courage from Robin Wright for his exceptional contributions to the global struggle against HIV/AIDS. The lovely actress genuinely shared with the audience special moments of praising his extraordinary generosity towards amfAR, which was on display that night with two lots that he donated to the event’s live auction. He also awarded the chance to sit for a private portrait commission with him, a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Harry Belafonte, Chelsea Clinton, and Kenneth Cole spoke beautifully and Grammy Award-winning Nile Rodgers, and Harry Belafonte whom I had a chance to meet and chat. The highlight of the evening was disco queen Grace Jones hitting the stage. She instantly made everyone reaching for their cameras through her spotlight floating and Hula-Hooped performance. At 65 she flamboyantly hopped up on people’s tables, electrifying the crowds with her sky high heels. The room was dazzling in climax. One could say that magnitude of everyone’s emotions were elevated. The gala was full of memorable moments, incredible individuals who make this world a better place for us every day. I m so grateful that I could be part of such an amazing gathering and I am much looking forward to attending it next year.

Who is your best gossiping friend?

GOSSIP GIRLS
019++
07++
011++Picture spending pristine quality time with your pals. Laughing, gossiping, dolling up, or double dating. All this has no limits. In fact Gossiping is the most fascinating because it is, in fact not abstract. It deposits some beliefs, half truths often lies creating landscapes of cosmic importance.
We immediately awaken and radiate to its crop. There are people who naturally romance within us their magnetic charisma at first glimpse. They emanate passion, strong emotions, enthusiasm and joe de vivre from casual elegance.
I am immediately drawn to such scene where uncomplicated facade, open heart, genuine curiosity and generosity grabs me at its core. I personally love to surround myself with people whom together we can shoot for the moon.
We are programmed to create perfect friendships with our double duty where one doesn’t need to wear mask, nor stay on guard  This choice of friendship that we formulate has substance which outlines highly valued points. They bring the best in us and without them we may never achieve some prominence.
Some people’s style, character and taste leaves lasting imprint on our vision and friendship we value and inspire. Until then we can enjoy gossiping about it!

WHO DO YOU DRESS FOR?

For one thing women are always playing and reacting with their emotions. We test all the time. “No” often means yes and “Yes” translates to no. Go figure us out. There is no logic behind it at all. We check if you get the bite. And if you don’t we aim and activate our competitive dominant component to trigger explosive mix. We are full of charms.

I always question if we dress really for ourselves, men or other women?

Wearing provocative uncensored clothes definitely get us some attention as well it may get us in trouble. Perhaps its all about the mind game, teasing on and power play. Image is often powerful but superficial at the same time. After all we get judged daily as “we are what we wear”.

It was hard to keep a poker face while playing cards with my funny pal Carolina. We both dressed in Dolce & Gabbana black and ivory pant suits and Christian Louboutin black pumps while concentrating on our winnings. The only game we decided to play for a day was game of being ourselves!

Sexy Crazy Miracles are on their way

KNOCK KNOCK  – who’s there? Sexy crazy Miracle.

I couldn’t ask for a better way to start this weekend then spending it with two crazy sexy soul sisters Gabrielle Bernstein and Kris Carr. With the physical and virtual attendance roughly under 1700 in Y Kaufman Concert Hall in NYC I have to say it was a dream gathering of the most stylish and beautiful blondes Bergdorf could ever wish for. We started this exciting evening with short 2 minutes meditation followed by a prayer to reenergize the room and shift its awareness. With no time to waste sexy crazy gals “cut to the chase” instantly moving us to a spiritual bubble.

I was on the mission within those 2 powerful hours to find my quest to claim freedom. Mysteriously my internal voice got completely lost in the big overcrowded room looking for my seat to kick me right where I needed to be awaken. There were so many awesome lessons to learn, expand the mind, and take notes from those two beautiful souls. I wept with joy!

The circulating energy was so vibrant mixed with lots of emotions as personal stories were shared. This was a proper outlet to focus, nod, sporadically whistle allowing the miracles to be scattered. I felt as Kriss was talking just to me. How possibly could she have read my mind knowing what I was going through or how I felt. I didn’t say a word. With her sexy crazy metallic sparkling stilettos she span her magic getting everyone’s undivided attention and lots of applause. Kris talked with so much authority, wisdom, compassion and uncensored humor. And just like a sage with her magic wand transformed and nurtured every present soul in the room. This was my AHA moment when I realized that we are all in it together. We go through same range of emotions, feelings, disappointments, regrets, thoughts and have millions of identical unanswered questions. We tirelessly exhaust questioning our calling ignoring a real urge to exercise our flabby faith muscle.

Adding pinch of joy in simple pleasure boosts our comfort creating our best madison. Because the only way to measure our success would be knowing how much fun we are actually having. When talking about how we compare ourselves to people Kris Carr says,

   “stars don’t compare themselves to other stars.”
“Let go of the pressure you put on yourself to succeed.” 

Turning to nature is the best band-aid for our let downs. Working with compassion starts with ourselves first. It’s a pre-show to forgiveness. This is not a time neither our place to look for guilty or blame anyone. We are the authors of our stories that can be re-written at any time.

As Sexy gal says “the only time you can change someone is when they are in diapers”

This guidance and love exchange released a lot of of my patterns and lead me to actively think and look for certain things. Because when you think you create. Taking baby steps, being patient and doing it well it’s a promising beginning. And you guessed it I am opening all the doors wide inviting miracles to happen! One door and miracle at the time.

Thank you Chris Carr and Gabrielle Bernstein for pointing to that right door! 

 P.S. As always I would like to hear from you if you believe in miracles?  Share your comments thoughts and suggestions with the rest of us.

Winter Fashion Trace

WINTER COLD NOTICE

Blame it all on cold winter season as we cover ourselves warmly in finest shearling, jackets and coats. Just before the snow was about to hit the city I spend a cold afternoon in the park looking for sunny spots. It was fun to enjoy the last moments of late Fall breeze along with blending in with beautiful Central Park nature this time of the year.

Nature can be such an inspiration to follow up with adequate color palette, and layers. Even if you don’t realize it, you are always influenced by what is around you.  I love softness of beiges, camels, cognacs, golds, creams, winter whites, chocolate browns  all marching in perfect harmony. It seemed like a neutral step to put Escada cognac shearling jacket paired with Gucci camel tussle skirt for the upcoming brunch and meeting, that day.

Enjoy your breezy snow white day!

How to spend Holidays in New York

Shopping starts with Store Windows

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-3

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-4

CHRISTMAS-WINDOWS-1

Dec is the most anticipated time of the year not only for kids, but major department stores which transform their window displays into miniature winter wonderlands.  There is a lot to admire, get some serious laughs, and It doesn’t matter if its raining or snowing. You don’t want to miss it!! This New York holiday tradition makes it possible for everyone enjoying the holidays in NYC. I recommend you wear warm clothes, comfortable shoes, and look stylish within crowded haute window shopping.

Every day on my way to work I pass my favorite store Bergdorf Goodman which is located just across the street from Boutique on 57. Their window displays are always huge hit. I purposely slow down to admire those masterly crafted holiday signature designs. They get my vote for the most creative and talented artist’s choice of theme, displays of authentic antiques, couture fashions and tons of quartz crystals. They tastefully convert unveiling spirit of christmas sophistication.

It is an amazing experience and true art . I recently watched a documentary “Scatter my ashes at Bergdorf’s”  (which by the way is amazing film) and I learned what it takes to create elaborate windows. How much time thought, precision and dedication is put into each detail.

Right across the street from Bergdorf Goodman there is freshly opened store Mackenzie- Childs. They specialize in variety of home custom decorations and ornaments. I cruised within the store admiring their beautiful crafted windows, and indoor shelves when I came across cutting-edge christmas balls that were made in my native country Poland.

All those exquisite holiday stories are perfect destination for Santa Clause to arrive soon. I am sure he is going to have award time which store to start from.  I also couldn’t make up my mind.
