Make Your Own Choice
I was recently called out on holding a supposedly strongly stance against marriage. Since it happened twice in one month, I feel like something I said was actually lost in translation.  I neve...

What’s the deal with meditation?
I don’t know what it’s like everywhere else, but here in the US, meditation has become very popular, to the point where companies hire teachers to give...

Give What You Get
A week ago, I got a text message from a guy I went on a date with… a year before. I didn’t expect to hear from him again (which is why I deleted his number), so I was pretty surprised.&...

How I Decided To Give Up This Beauty Race
It happens that I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Upper East Side recently, and must say one thing – there are a lot of fake faces out there. And it really annoys ...

Where Are You From?...Who Cares?
I can’t believe I have to write about this again, but it just bothers me so much, so here we go. Racism is alive and homophobia is alive, and if you think differently, you’re delusional&...

Step 61 - Find Your Lifestyle
As I said in one of my recent posts – the world has changed and the way we live has changed. I honestly think it’s time to reevaluate some ideas and solutions about the life we want to l...

Do you even want to get married?

What Does It Mean To Be Successful? My Five Years In NYC

Step 60 - What Does It Really Mean To Leave Your Comfort Zone?
“Leaving the comfort zone” became a very common phrase these past few years. It is associated with the idea of breaking free from the life you’ve had so far – with sta...

Choose Your Own Relationship
I’m single so – naturally – I do think about guys and relationships. I’ve been thinking a lot of what type of a guy would actually make me want to be in a relationship. An...

Step 59 - How Many (Facebook) Friends Do You Need?

Road Trip 2 – Taconic State Parkway – Lake Placid – Finger Lakes


As I said before on Just Like NY, I was born to do road trips and I am planning to have as many of them as I possibly can. That’s why we decided with my cousin Sebastian to explore upstate NY on the last weekend of May. A few days before, I simply googled “explore upstate NY” (how very clever of me) and nine road trip routes popped up immediately. We combined two of those –

Cosmetics


I’ve been asked a few times what cosmetics brands are popular in NY. I would happily answer that question – if I only knew the answer myself. All cosmetics are black magic to me, I have no clue about make-up. I used to buy magazines all the time and make-up section was the one that I always skipped, since I found it really boring. I’m proud of myself now, because I use some kin

Shopping in NYC


I remember that when I first came to NY,  I was confused by the variety of brands I saw. I didn’t know most of them, which is why shopping became an adventure. Now I know a bit more, but there are still plenty of brands I haven’t heard of. I observe where tourists go, which is how I find out what brands are desirable for people who don’t live in US. When it comes to casu

Weekend in SoHo


Because the Global Warming surprised us with a hot weekend (over 60 degrees in February)  everyone went to the streets. And by “everyone” I really mean everyone. So did I. I had different plans, but I just decided to skip the gym (yes, I felt guilty a bit) and get off in SoHo to simply walk around. I did it for at least 3 hours on Saturday and for a bit shorter time on Sunday. I

Upper West Side


I love to sleep in different parts of New York (I mean at my friends’ apartments), because every neighborhood is different. I had a chance to spend a few nights on the Upper West Side recently, on 104th and Broadway to be exact. The thing that grabbed my attention right away was the fact that it’s cleaner than in other parts of Manhattan. What I also liked about the Upper West Sid

Fancy Lifestyle in NYC


Drapes went down Lots of people (and probably most of you guys) associate living in NY with a fancy lifestyle. Let me tell you this once again – there is a group of people here that lives like that, but trust me, it is not that large. What’s more, even if they party a lot at the best places, they still work a lot. Or they just are on cocaine all the time (you wouldn’t believe

Night of Beauty at Marie Lou&D


I’ve already mentioned on Just Like NY that living in New York is nothing like “Sex & The City”. We work a lot in here, and we have less time for ourselves than one could think. And this bullshit - I’ll just grab a coffee and come back with a new pair of Manolo Blahniks – doesn’t really happen. I can grab coffee and buy myself a protein bar or a muffin to

Pop Souk – Fun, Fashion and Booze


I experienced Pop Souk for the first time last month. You may ask, what is it? It’s an event where New Yorkers from all five boroughs, nightlife personalities, artists, musicians, DJs, designers, fashionistas and assorted nutcases gather together and create a fun place, filled with fashion and booze. It's more than just a marketplace, even though those talented New Yorkers sell their perso
