My NYC Trip!

Whenever I fly by myself I always try to get a window seat. I like looking out the window when the plane starts to land, especially when I'm heading back to NYC. I can always spot the building I used to work at.  The first thing that happens upon arriving back to NY, my parents always take me to dim sum and then my grandma always cooks me a huge meal to welcome me back. This was the first Thanksgiving without my husband and it was hard not being with him and Nero and now Sherlock. But I was so happy to see my grandma.  I always try to make my grandma laugh and right before I took this picture I said, "I don't know why my head looks so big next to yours." That totally did the trick. I also managed to make it back in time for my brother's 42nd birthday. How did we get so old? Here's a rare photo of the three of us. My brother doesn't normally look so grumpy but I guess he's not thrilled to be getting older. I was actual

NYC Splatter Reflective Collection!

I saw this on my InstaStory last night.  I screen captured some images off my phone since it will disappear in 24 hours.  Oh and if anyone wants to follow me on Instagram I'm PetiteImpact on there as well. I don't really run at night so I can't see myself purchasing any of these items.  But it's definitely great if you do!  Now the question is, how much will they be selling for?

My trip to NYC --> Boston --> Newport -->NYC --> Atlanta

Now that I've been back home for a couple of days, I wanted to share some photos from my trip over the last 2 weeks.  Traveling is fun, but I really missed sleeping in my bed and being able to control the air conditioner at night.  I can't sleep unless it's 72 degrees or cooler.  Anyone else out there with me on this?  My body generates so much heat when I'm sleeping. Times Square at night. Sometimes I do miss NYC, but most of the time I really don't.  One of my biggest complaints is the air pollution.  It's pretty disgusting when you combine the heat, humidity and the cigarette smoke from everyone walking around the streets in the summer.  It actually made my asthma spike along with allergies I get in the northeast.  I'm still recovering from it. This is my 92 year old grandma. I love my grandma dearly which is why I go back to New York to visit as often as I do.  She's getting up there in age and at 92 years old, how many more chances

Lululemon Flatiron NY - Behind The Design Event

It was definitely way more low key than I expected.  I got there exactly at 8am and didn't see a line, no crowd, nothing!  The store didn't look like it was open.  I actually thought for a minute that maybe I was at the wrong Lululemon location.  I checked my phone just in case I was mistaken and right then a couple walked in so I followed.  (I have this thing where I don't like to be the only customer in a store.) I went in hopes of finally seeing the Wunder Speed Tights in florence print, but sadly they were not there.  I actually didn't see anything new.  No one checked my event ticket, so anyone could have just walked in.  I am glad I went since they did give 15% off your entire purchase. It was fairly empty.   I would say maybe a total of 20 to 30 customers trickled in within the hour that I was there.  The educators were super nice and friendly.  I asked them if they were discontinuing the Free To Be Wild Bra since I haven't seen any new patterns o
