Throwback Tuesday: Summer NYC

Since it’s a lovely snowy, slushy, Tuesday night in the Big Apple, I thought it would be a good time for some throwback pictures.  Here are some from lower Manhattan that I took last year.  When it was warm.  And no snow.  And warm.  Waiting for spring to arrive with bated breath!

Diptyque Candle Review – Rosafolia

I have been wanting a Diptyque candle for a long time, but I haven’t really liked any of the smells.  Until I smelled Rosafolia.  It is described on the Diptyque website as “A scented candle whose verdure, enhanced by a touch of galbanum, is gracefully diffused at the heart of Turkish rose absolute, the softness of petals sharpened by the understated vitality from a hint of geranium.”

Here’s a picture of the beautiful packaging

Hello New York! This section is all about rediscovering the things that make NYC great. Yes, I’ve been living in this great metropolis for three years, yet I haven’t fully explored everywhere!
