Williamsburg Is Over
Summer’s almost here, so I decided to take a walk in Williamsburg, and it just reassured me that… thinks are really over for this neighborhood. I moved to Greenpoint (a sister neighbor...

Where is love?
Love has been on my mind recently (and probably has been unconsciously for a while now) and I started thinking about where to find it. I know it’s a pretty odd thing (you can&rsqu...

It’s Your Man Or...Your Girlfriend?
I recently noticed a very scary pattern, and I’m wondering what is causing it. I’ve noticed that women are a bit lost and confused as to what kind of partner they want to have by thei...

Should I Dump Him?
I was just sitting in the sauna at my gym last week, and I couldn’t help but overheard the conversation of two women around my age (even though I was trying very hard to focus on the guys in spe...

We all pretend it’s normal…
We all pretend that life in NY is normal. Just today I had the day off, which isn’t usually for a Thursday, and I decided to go to the gym before noon. I got on a train at 10am and...

What If I Told You That You Can Have a Different Life?
I know I will sound very naïve now, but I had a recent revelation I would like to share with you. I started thinking about the choices we make and why we actually make them. Those who have rea...

Poor Rich Kids
I have mentioned money in NYC on Just Like NY a few times already. There is a lot of money here, and people spend lots of it on a variety of weird and stupid things sometimes....

Do You Want To Be Famous?
Because I’ve been living here for almost five years now, I tend to forget what kind of place NYC is. It’s where fantasy keeps meeting reality. The longer you live here, the more “...

Double Standard – Why Are Women Treated Differently?
I had a situation that I wrote about on Facebook, but I want to write more about it, because there is more to it.  So there was a guy, a customer of mine who I had met maybe three times, who&n...

Why Having a Boyfriend Will Not Make You Happy?
When I was a teenage girl (that is one week ago… just kidding), my biggest dream was to have a boyfriend. Especially since a weekly column called “Love Story” from “Bravo&r...

What Happens Once You Stop Caring If People Like You?
What happens once you stop caring if people like you…? It’s simple – your life starts changing. Yes, it’s that huge. One day I realized that it happened to me – that ...

Men and Sex
What is it that men want when it comes to sex…? The thing is: they want to have everything. Including a virgin. That’s the funniest part. I didn’t have a lot of sex in my life (c...

Step 31 - How About Stopping Complaining…?


What NY taught me is to stop complaining entirely. I was never been a big complainer to start with, but I had my moments. of course. Now, I simply don’t. I would still complain from time to time – when I work a 16-hour shift, sleep for 4 hours and then work another 9-hour shift, for example. I might get cranky then, I admit. But on the regular basis I just choose not to complain. And

Step 30 - The Grass Is Greener…


 I believe I wrote about the thing I am about to discuss before on Just Like NY, but I think it’s important enough to talk about it again. I bet everyone knows the quote: “The grass is greener on the other side of the fence”. I’m guilty of thinking this way myself and I have this moment every once in a while when it hits me that I’m doing that again. It doesn&r

Do You Really Think That Having a Hermes Bag Would Make You a Better Person?


I got used to seeing wealth in NY. Not only are the most expensive boutiques based here, but also the greatest labels are seen on the streets on a daily basis. It’s normal that you see people wearing Gucci, Prada, Hermes – no matter if we’re talking bags, glasses, or clothes. For a lot of people here it’s just regular clothes. People buy them, because they can simply affo

California Trip


Last month, I finally made my dream come true and went on a trip to California. It was a spontaneous decision: a friend of mine said she was going, and she offered me to go with her and her friend. I wasn’t thinking much, I just said Yes. I got my plane ticket two days later. The brief plan for the trip was LA – Catalina Island - San Diego – LA. I landed two days after the two

Your Place on Earth


My recent California trip helped me to realize a lot of things. But the most important things started happening in my head while I was still there.  It blows my mind how we restrict ourselves. We don’t even need any kind of threat, danger, or higher power – we put limitations on ourselves on our own, without even realizing it. I was lucky enough that I have traveled a lot with

What Are You Willing To Sacrifice?


As I mentioned it a few times before, I work out to the videos of  the Polish fitness trainer Ewa Chodakowska. She recently posted this thing on Facebook that made me think. People always say things like: “I wish I could live like that”, “I wish I could live in NY”, “I wish I could travel like you do”, “I wish I looked like you” (just to be cl

Why Would I Ask My Boyfriend to Work Out?


I can see some of your faces right away. And I’m smiling, because I know what some of you think – that this is a weird or superficial request to make. And I don’t agree with you. I’ve been writing about bodies, working out and self-confidence a lot lately – and those subjects will be coming back, since that’s something I’m really interested in. And this

Step 28 - What You Can Do At Your Age?


The answer is – everything. No matter how old you are. And people just don’t get it. It’s really difficult for me to listen to the statements like that: “I can’t suddenly start doing that! I’m too old for that!”. I just don’t want to be around those people anymore. What does it mean that you’re “too old” for something…? You
