Rekindling My Romantic Relationship With New York City
A little fact about me: one of my most dominating qualities is that I’m very spontaneous. Living
in New York City comes with so many surprises. I have learned to adapt well to an ever changing schedule as a self employed creative. No day is the same for me, but every day is busy. As a New York Workaholic, it’s easy to get caught up in your calendar and lose balance for fun and personal
moments. I’ll get to a point where I feel so stir crazy that I need to take a cab to JFK and hop on
the next flight out, but that’s not realistic in most cases. So it’s important to find the smaller
way to keep things exciting and take the ordinary to the extraordinary. The next best thing is to
grab my friends for an exciting and spontaneous evening out to rekindle my romance with New
Another aspect of my personality is that I can be flakey. There’s really no happy medium here
with me. I’m either a super spontaneous adventurer, or I’m a lazy homebody. We are ALL guilty
of walking through our front door into our homes after a long day and realizing how nice it is to
be home. Therefore, canceling all plans. I’m definitely guilty of sitting down on my couch and
being unable to get back up. So, in order to keep that spontaneous energy alive, I have about a
10-minute turnaround time to get re-ready. A last-minute evening out calls for a quick
turnaround and easy touch ups.
One of my favorite ways to re-inspire my mood to go out is a spritz of fragrance to set the tone
of the evening. The Ralph Lauren Beyond Romance fragrance is my go-to…..it’s sultry, sweet,
and luxurious notes immediately awaken my confidence and energy to take on whatever the
evening brings, as well as transform my day vibe into the night. #BeyondRomance
I love this fragrance because it goes beyond the traditional floral Romance fragrance for a more
daring, sensual and sweet scent. The notes create an unexpected twist that make me feel more
confident when I wear it. It really sets the tone for a spontaneous night out in the city.
