"Fall" in Love

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fantastic Thursday! Over the weekend, I spent a beautiful afternoon exploring the meatpacking district with my friend Esther. She was kind enough to model for this week's post at the Pier 51 playground, on the far west side of Manhattan. We had such a fun day out, and topped it off with a stop at one of my favorite coffee houses in the city, Stumptown. Esther has this cute little blog called Love Always, Esther that you should definitely check out for fun eats around the city, as well as wonderful beauty and fashion finds.

For those of you not from New York, the Meatpacking district is one of the up and coming trendy neighborhoods in Manhattan. It owes its name to the meat distribution companies that once dominated the area. Whilst it wasn't long ago that the trendiest thing worn around the area was a blood-stained apron, these days, this neighborhood is claimed to be one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in the city. You are now more likely to spot celebrities/ models in hit local restaurants, twirling around in exclusive clubs, or shopping in many paycheck-draining boutiques ;)

If you walk west till you hit water, that's the Hudson river. Across the river, faintly in the distance, you can see the skyline of New Jersey. The west side highway is a popular place for runners and cyclists. I normally run this track at least once a week all the way to FIDI (the Financial District area of Manhattan) with my friend.

I hope no matter where you are in the world, you'll go and explore your home city, rediscover its many charms and fall in love with living at "home" all over again!
