Glamorous Makeover

Your working day is coming to the end, the sun slowly goes down over the skyscrapers, illuminating the streets with warm glow, and the mad rhythm of the big city slowly goes down … or so you think.  The Queen of the Night is approaching, bringing all sorts of mischief with her. Now we just need some magic to be transformed from our 9-5 look into the evening glam.

Love me Tinder

I bet everyone who is sexually active have heard of Tinder, Happen and similar dating/easy-hook-up apps which are popping up like mushrooms after a summer rain now.

Valentine's Day

Have you started to notice teddy bears in store fronts along with the abundance of all sorts of red and heart shaped? Yes it’s coming in like a hurricane, and it’s called Valentine’s Day.  The big romantic night out for two, with mediocre pre fix menu and service, overpriced plush toys, roses and chocolate.  Can this get any more predictable and unsentimental? United in our dislike of everything mass, conventional and mundane explore our alternatives to the lovey-dovey togetherness.

We are One Year Old!

So exactly a year ago on January 26th we have launched NYBLender blog with the very first post on Hong Kong. Obviously the idea came long before and we have been sleeping on it, testing the waters in writing, and gathering ideas.

Be the Queen of the Ball

Your limo won’t turn into a pumpkin at the stroke of midnight, but you will be in a modern day fairy tale dancing the night away among the splendid décor, live music and a room full of beautiful people.  And you don’t need an exceptional invite, or even get on the flight to Los Angeles.  The magic is right here in NYC.

Going Green!

A New Year is always suggesting for some new resolutions and challenges to incorporate into one’s life. I have started “going green” a little while ago, but this year it finally seems to be shaping up into a real lifestyle that I am planning to promote more and more.

Magic Kingdom

And the magic is in the planning. Lots and lots and lots of planning; every, freaking, detail of your Disney experience.  So here is a rundown on what to do, what to avoid, and what not to do if you are anywhere remotely like me and cannot tolerate long lines, obnoxious crowds and rowdy kids.

Warm up your winter by heading down to Miami and its surrounding beach front areas.  Miami has so many nooks and crannies: variety of neighborhoods, designs, vibes, parties, and simply the endless sounds of crashing waves.

RIP push-up bra

Recently going through my closet, I have realized I no longer own a single push-up bra. Nor do I own an impressive full décolleté, just a cozy B cup. Few WhatsApp chats with my girls later, and we have discovered that push-up bras have left our wardrobes for good and not even planning to return. But the question “why?” still remained.

The Classic Sparkle

Every girl arrives to the point in life when she feels the desire to start her own fine jewelry collection. Putting aside that special diamond solitaire ring, which calls for a celebration of another kind, the base of collection most certainly should be the diamond stud earrings.

New York Broadway Shows

There is something absolutely unique about New York City and its abundance of theaters with enormous variety of performances. Six nights a week you can go and see a different show, from on Broadway musicals and celebrity name featured theater productions, to a small off-Broadway sets with more experimental works, or go for an opera or ballet at the Lincoln Center. There is plenty to choose from for any taste: drama, comedy, thriller, or burlesque. Some are for kids and others are for adults only.

72 Hour Party in Dubai

If Miami and Las Vegas had a baby … that would be Dubai! Stretching along white sand beaches, blue waters, palm trees, and most innovative and architecturally progressing high-rises … this modern man made marvel also boasts an outlandish party scene of which both Miami and Vegas can be envious.

One Picture

2017 Fall Art Season

September is here and that means that New York city’s galleries, museums and all other art organizations are ready for new and dynamic season. Here is a short list of some noteworthy exhibits, events and installations with something for everyone.

Three lakes of Northern Italy

In a search of weeklong, sunny, relaxed and picturesque vacation in Europe the destination was decided to be Northern Italy. Easy to reach, plenty to see, superb climate and great food, what else to wish for? I personally have been exploring Italy for the last fifteen years since the time I’ve lived in Milan, but it never gets old. This time I chose to concentrate on three major lakes that are in the close proximity to Milan, with brief visits to Verona and Venice for the full experience package. Each of those towns deserves a post on its own, but this time we are going to concentrate on the great lakes of Northern Italy.

Live the Charmed Life

Charms, charms, charms … dangling on the wrists, necklines, ankles, and bags. I adore charm bracelets! Those are personal, beautiful, fun and easy to wear accessories. Charms can be a conversation starter, a statement piece or simply a gentle reminder of where it came from.   Charm is simply a “lucky” object which is believed to bring one good luck. Today we wear a charm bracelet or a necklace as an item of jewelry. Usually it carries personal "charms": decorative pendants or trinkets which signify important things in the wearer's life, or simply because they are cute.
