nykeiko shops: Catherine Deane dresses [January 2015 NYC Sample Sale]

I've cleaned my closet to make space for two new dresses. I haven't bought a dress in a while now. I sold a couple of dresses on eBay and donated two other dresses including one purchased over ten years ago that just needed to go (actually, I'm donating them to my sister the next time I visit her.) Husband probably wants me to donate a bag full but baby steps honey, baby steps.

Last week, I was invited to shop a private friends and family Catherine Deane sample sale. I was told every dress, short or long, would be $100.

nykeiko plays: Quintessential New York

There are literally hundreds of spots in Central Park where you can capture the perfect picture and one of them is by the Jackie Onassis Reservoir. Any time of the day is nice but at sunset, it’s one for the books. This picturesque landscape, to me, is a quintessence of New York city.

nykeiko plays: Boozing and painting [Painting Lounge-Manhattan]

Rene Magritte "The Son of Man" a la Totoro
A couple of friends (two couples), me and Dave attended a painting class at the Painting Lounge in Manhattan last summer. We had such a good time, we went ahead and bought another coupon but the motivation has since dissipated and we have until end of March to book a class. Anyway, I never showed you guys what we drew.

My #TBT=#ThrowbackTravels #35: Kona, Big Island, Hawaii

That time we put on some snorkels and jumped into the pitch black sea to stalk a group of manta rays feast some on plankton...
