Today marks a day in history…

I can say with certain that on August 19th 2013, I had the best day of my entire life.

While you’ll expect an extravagant story like Ryan Gosling asking me to marry him or winning the lottery, it was actually about simple pleasures.

My morning started with taking the subway (which is super complicated in NYC, but I figured it out in one shot) to Kinokuniya and browsed through the bookstore for about an hour. I absolutely loved it! It has (among other things) unique fashion/beauty books and Japanese magazines. The magazine I bought called “Baila” included a free Kate Spade lipstick holder. Free. Kate Spade. Umm, yes please.

After being on a high from browsing hundreds of books, I bought a few for myself and walked a block to get sushi (my favourite food of all time).

I then headed to Bryant park. The sun was shining through the trees and a soft breeze filled the NYC air. It was such a beautiful summer day. I walked though the park, which didn’t have many people around since it was late morning, and I took a seat right beside a carousel that softly played classical, romantic music. I opened my magazine, ate lunch and soaked in how wonderful I felt. Total bliss.

When I planned on coming to NYC, all I wanted to do was be alone. To recharge.  Like I’ve mentioned in past posts, my hectic work schedule overwhelmed me and it took a serious toll on my body and spirit. For the first time this year, I no longer stressed about finding a career, mourning over my break-up, and didn’t feel anxious waking up with a million things on my mind.

I felt, at peace.

Midnight munchies? NYC does not disappoint.
