I was never the type of girl who liked to travel in crowds. I like to make an entrance, make a statement. Most importantly, I like to work on my own.
I went out to work on Thursday needing money for my upcoming trip to the Canary Islands. I was planning on shopping the next day and needed my paycheck. I got my mind ready to strategize, to focus, and to land my sales pitch effortlessly.

I met my client right outside her building onWall Street. She was dressed like a million dollars, looking like a bottle of fine wine. I followed her as she stepped into some stores to do some shopping during her lunch hour. We went to try on some shoes. She had six pairs which she liked and I encouraged her to try them on as I sat on the bench next to her waiting for the sales woman to see if they had a pair of sandals in my size.

The longer I sat next to her the more I encouraged her to try a variety of sexy heels. The saleswoman breathlessly walked back and forth to get the right shoes and the right fit, knowing that this woman was here to spend some money. She narrowed it down to three pairs and began walking the length of the store to see which one fit. All eyes were on her as each foot delicately hit the ground with her perfectly manicured foot inside.

My cell phone rang just then and I stepped outside to take the call. I had to turn the corner fast as I couldn’t hear with all the noise outside and found a nice quiet little alley. I opened my jacket and pulled out my latest “purchase”. The well dressed woman’s purse was inside with credit cards, $500 in cash, three gift cards and ID. I ran to the piers and took a water taxi into Brooklyn. My colleague was waiting for, me money in hand, to purchase my new found goods. I removed the $500 dollars in cash and gave him the rest. I had quite the assortment and it fetched me just enough to enjoy my weekend on the Canary Islands.

My feet were hurting and I had been exhausted from working long hours all week. A long weekend was just what I need and I was looking forward to laying on the beach with a drink in hand.

What  I love about Brooklyn is that art is everywhere.

It’s on your way to the Bodega. It’s down the stairs you use to throw out your garbage. It’s on the road you take to get on the subway.

It’s on the shirt you wore. It’s there in the way you matched your sneakers to your outfit. It’s there in how you perfectly cut your shirt to add some style. It’s there…..

It’s everywhere you go. It’s always with you and within you.

This is one of my favorite shirts and can be found here

I had my birthday this past weekend and left the house with a smile, ready to start my day. I took a nice stroll through Brooklyn and stumbled upon a cute vintage store. I found these really cool wooden bracelets that looked great with my outfit. I couldn’t resist the great price and had to have them! Then I went to PetSmart to look at kittens. I thought about adopting one and even played with the kittens! They were soooo cute.

After walking around Brooklyn and playing with the cats, I got hungry. The sun was going down so I decided to grab a slice of NY pizza and bring some home. I stopped at “Not Rays Pizza” on the way home and walked back with the smell of pizza calling out to me. I couldn’t wait to sit down, kick off my shoes, and eat my slice.
