Now that Fashion Week is over, it's awesome that my life is getting back to normal and one of those things is getting back to the gym. One of the things that I love about David Barton Gym is that it's not the typical gym. I'm a machine girl (unless you catch me at pilates or yoga) and I love that this room is so dim and lets you kind of be in your own world as you work out. Having warm hues in the room just sets a great mood and encourages you to keep pushing through the wall. Once you leave this room (although I love being here for 45 mins or so) then I love stopping by the disco ball to work (or try to) with the weights. You can't pass up a chance to see the city below as you rock out to whatever is being spun! Next stop - I have to check out a yoga class as I love having so many candles that they have an entire wall in the room flickering away!

If you're not familiar with " target="new">Bond No 9
, then you definitely need a quick crash course in this amazing fragrance brand that not only has amazing notes but also embraces elements of NYC! I love that with 34 scents for men and women and yes a unisex one as well - this is the perfect way to embrace all the scents of New York! Now with so many scents available, it's also important to enjoy the fact that the bottles are just as gorgeous as the aroma! These bottles are collectibles without a doubt and for me there are two scents that are definitely worth highlighting!
is not only one of my favorite places in the city, but I love the fact that my favorite Starbucks is in the area and I'm not too far from my fave bars. Astor Place
is definitely about the arts between amazing pieces and of course fab music as well. My favorite note is the mix of Freesia
and Teakwood. This is a fragrantly playful mix of a sweet/dense combination.
When it comes to all that is truly playful and doesn't have to explain how it all comes together - you definitely want to enjoy Brooklyn
. Wherever you're from and wherever you're heading this combination of scents is always perfect whether you're heading out to work or simply going to your favorite brunch spot!
Regardless of which scent you choose, Bond No 9
has proven that you'll always find what you're looking for or what it is that you're trying to convey!
