Hello, Nashville!

Seen at Nashville International Airport, TN, USA

 

Spotted at Nashville International Airport - man with cowboy boots and guitar.

I'm definitely in the country music capital of the world.

Using Instagram's Nashville filter for good measure.

Celebrate Down Under Culture at the Brooklyn Night Bazaar Sat Feb 1st

Brooklyn Night Bazaar have brought the fun, food and flair of New York's summer open-air markets indoors for the winter season - and they are doing a cracking good job.

On Saturday February 1st, 2014, they will go 'Down Under' for the very first time with a New Zealand theme and as a loud and proud Kiwi-lover and fellow ANZAC, I am super excited.

Here are some of the Down Under magic that will be about the market on Saturday:

- Sweet treats like pavlova, caramel slice and lamingtons by Waltzing Matilda's baked by the super sweet Laura Forer

DUB (Down Under Bakery) Pies will be launching New York's very first savoury #pietruck - which is also a pretty cool Kickstarter success story

- Steinlager beer - I'm no beer drinker but apparently this Kiwi beer is pretty darn good

- Gig by NZ band Streets of Laredo who quite possibly the next big thing

Entry is free, but you can skip the queue by pre-purchasing your ticket, which will also get you a DUB pie, coffee (flat white I suppose?) and maybe even a beer if you get there early enough! Worth it, I reckon!

Brooklyn Night Bazaar
165 Banker Street,
Brooklyn NY 11222

Hope to see you there!

CASE STUDY: Producing New York's Small Business Awards

Earlier this week NYER announced the 2013 finalists for the Small Business Awards - the only program that recognizes entrepreneurs and business owners in the New York and tri-state area.

When I was Marketing Manager at NYER, the 2012 Small Business Awards was one of my first big projects, and I really was thrown in the deep end, joining just 2 months before the gala awards ceremony! The case study summarizes my involvement in this fantastic program.

For a taste of the energy and comraderie that fills the room of the gala award ceremony, take a squiz at this highlights reel from the event I produced on October 10 2012, in Manhattan, which is referred to by many as "the networking event of the year".

Yoga For The Senses

AWNY Yoga in Central Park, led by Natalie Warner. Photo courtesy of inFORM Yoga.

I've done yoga off and on for a few years now in a variety of places and spaces. Gyms, studios, smelly heated rooms, with carpet, with wooden floors, the rustic, then glam, the simple and in cities like Sydney, Byron Bay and New York. One thing I had never done, until recently was yoga in the outdoors. And not just any patch of grass, mind you. In New York's Central Park.

New York, or....

After living in New York for over one year, I often wonder when and if I will ever leave. Tonight I watched the first episode of the TV series Felicity on Netflix and this quote by Scott Foley's character Noel Crane made me smile.

Stay in New York, or perish.

My First: Juice Cleanse, Day 3

My Liquiteria 'Beets Me' juice, Tupperware water bottle and Poppin notebook and pen on my office desk.

Apologies for the delay in getting this post up - Thursday was was the final day of my 3-day juice cleanse and I'm playing a little catch up!

That morning I headed down to Liquiteria to get my last batch of juice and drank away throughout the day.
