Don’t judge by the chapter you walked into.
It’s a new year, so I want you to change one thing. I would say “we,” but I’ve already been working on it the last two years (not that I’ve mastered it yet). Don’...

Why Some Women Don’t Want to Have Kids (And Why the Reason Is Not What You Think It Is)
Yes, I want to write about it (again), because it bothers me. I recently realized I don’t want to have kids (now and maybe ever). And I realized how difficult it is for a woman not only to adm...

You’re Fine
2018 has been a very successful year for me, because I finally understand that I’m completely fine. I just look at myself and I finally see myself. It took me half my life to understand it, bu...

It’s Profound to Be Understood
As Whoopi Goldberg said in her book „If He Says: ‚You complete me’ — Run!”, which I’ve already written about on JLNY some time ago, people tend to mistake love fo...

You’re Always Becoming
Michelle Obama released her book memoir, „Becoming”, and I keep seeing it everywhere in NYC. I haven’t read it yet and now I really want to. Not because I consider Barack Obam...

Drop This Attitude
I just had my best friend Gosia visited me from Chicago a few weeks ago. We spent the whole weekend together excited about each other. We did a few activities, but what was the most important was th...

Is Your Partner’s Skin Color or Country of Origin Relevant At All?
I will answer the titular question right away: „I don’t think so”. And I’m pretty sure I am right. I honestly don’t understand this whole theory about having a partner ...

How To Get the Body You Want
Have you ever said to yourself: “I’m so fat”…? Or “I can’t even look at myself”…?. Or “I will never lose all this weight”…? Or &l...

Accept the challenge
Until now, my favorite sentence was always: “Hope he’ll change after we get married.” (Yeah,  sure, into a pumpkin…) But there is a new contender that I find equally ...

NY Love Story A.D. 2019
I don’t like romantic comedies. And I can tell you why. Once, it used to be my favorite genre, but I grew up since then (a bit). Also — I moved to NY. Romantic comedies just don’t ...

When Was the Last Time Your Journal Embarrassed You?
When was the last time you said to yourself: “This is embarrassing”, and you actually meant yourself…? Well, it just happened to me. I sat down to write about something else and I...

Why It’s Important To Not Look Like Shit
Here is my question: Why do you think it’s a good idea to look like shit at home? Some people put on their worst clothes at home - clothes with holes, stretched out, worn out, old and ugly. (B...

Walk With Me, Part 1 – Brookfield Place and The Statue of Liberty


Many people who visit NY and want to see Statue of Liberty take 5 subway line and get off at Bowling Green station, next to Battery Park. After they spot the Statue, they walk between buildings to World Trade Center. What I would suggest is a different solution. Take the E train and get off at World Trade Center station, then head to Brookfield Place (you can also visit Freedom Tower and the World

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
