Ok… I do have Robert Plant’s new song running through my head as we speak (Angel Dance – very, very, good!)

This song would make for a beautiful background soundtrack to stomping through the snow in the big A. How Lovely! These shots make me fall in love with this city, all over again.

For those of you, what do you call yourselves again… motorist? Not having a waterproof pod to transport you from point a to point B makes it pretty difficult to maneuver through our wintry wonderland known as NYC (As well as any other big city). Getting around has been elevated to a sport. Not only must a lady carefully dance through sooty snow to stay in the powdery white – one must select the correct waterproof yet fashionable attire  (one mussent forget work appropriateness of course… fashion snow day = no days, EVER!) So ladies, as the winter roles in put on a thinking cap (oh so cute and cozy of course) and plan you dress for the first spots play day, a.k.a. fashion snow day.

Photo op – there is only so much time before the snow plows storm in to take our winter wonderland away.

Hopefully these photos by Dewey Nicks with give you a solid foundation to your wintry wardrobe. This amazing photographer captured the snowy city in its essence. Check out more of his work at I promise you’re going to love it!

You’re Welcome! Lots of love from, E!


The first Sunday in November professional and amateur runners gather in the big Apple from all over the world to run the ING New York City Marathon. This tradition began in 1970 where 127 runners participated in the 26.219 mile race which looped through central park. That year only 55 people crossed the finish line and although runners today cover the same distance the number of people to cross the finish line in 2009 recorded 43,659. This coming sunday ING participants will run through all five of New Yorks boroughs over two million fans will line the streets, bridges, and park a long with 100 live bands with 315 million viewers watching from all over the world.

Go Big or go home… NYC marathon Understatement if I have ever heard one. As a spectator the energy and enthusiasm that is displayed by runners is awe inspiring. To all the runners this coming Sunday good luck, have a wonderful run, and props to you. I will be watching for you!

If you missed it this year, Marathon Monday, November 8th will mark the first day to sign up for the 2011 marathon. Don’t mind if I do!
