Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

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
