Se que tengo seguidores y suscriptores que le encantan visitar a Nueva York. Y otros que lo estan planeando. Manhattan y la ciudad de Neuva York, que incluye Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn y Staten Island tienen un sin numero de cosas que ver y hacer.  Asi que, aqui esta una lista de cosas que necesitas saber quando visitas a Nueva York y la isla de concreto. Tambien puedes descargar un “freebie” que cree’ si eres suscriptor de mi blog. Este entrada tiene enlaces de afiliacion.

 

Transportacion

Caminar-La cuidad de Nueva York es una ciudad de caminar. PERO para turistas que no estan acostumbrados a caminar mucho el subway es el mejor opcion. Los calles son largos, cruzando cinco calles te puede cojer 20-30 minutos o mas si no caminas rapido. Mientras tu caminas vas a ver los Neoyorquinos pasando te con prisa, porque sabemos si queremos llegar a la subway, tren o necesitamos estar en algun lugar en tiempo, necesitamos cruzar los calles largisimos.

 

Subway-La forma de transportacion mas rapida es el “subway”. Tambien es la forma mas economico de andar.  Ala misma vez la mayoria de los subways son viejos y se pueden tardan. Asegurate  de comprar un ¨Metro Card¨ la forma de pagar en el subway. Dependiendo de cauntas personas usuen el ¨metro card¨ pon la cantidad que crees que necesitaras. Ahora mismo un viaje por subway cuesta $2.62-$2.75 por persona.

 

Taxi, Lyft, Uber- Descargar los apps Lyft y Uber para pedir un caro, y mas caro pero mas rapido de ver son los Taxi´s amarriollo´s.

Ropa

Si, es posible estar comodo y estar en tendencia con lo que esta de moda! Si tienes dudas en que ponerte, los colores negro y blanco siempre van con todo! Inspirarte de los New Yorquinos y ponte majones, jacketas estilo moto o jean y un t-shirt. Los siguiente son otro ejemplos en que ponerte.

Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week-Style Fashion Week

New York Fashion Week  is over and I finally have time to start writing about what I saw during what is always a whirlwind filled week. This season I got to see some really great collections varying in jeans to gowns that reminded me of my Couture Fashion Week volunteering days in college. I took a few days off simply because I was not feeling great, it was raining or I was too exhausted. As much as it is a privilege to get invited to shows and events, it can be a nonstop week where you lose track of what’s next without an organized calendar. Thank goodness for my mother who always knows how to screw my head back on. How will I survive this week when I’m older? I’ll manage with experience, I guess… or with an intern! If you haven’t already read my The Fashion Industry, Is it for you or Not post, you’ll know I’ve been doing this since I was 18, so I guess I’ll continue to learn as I go.

 

I started off the week, which if you didn’t know always starts in the middle of one week and runs into the next week by attending the Style Fashion Week Shows. Later on in the week I attended the Cenia Convi Jean fashion show which also showcased t-shirt designs my the designers sister. Next stop during the week was a showcase on jewelry by Midori Linea and then a private showing at the JSong showroom. My last stop during the week was the Gypsy Sport show, which was my first time seeing that designer at fashion week. Here’s a roundup of my first set of shows. Click pictures to enlarge.

 

Style Fashion Week

Style Fashion week runs for three consecutive days and features various designers, artists, singers and smaller companies. I attended two out of three days as the third day I felt I wanted to stay home. The shows that I saw during these days included David Tupaz, Bahmardi, Raul Penarada, Hirun Bangkok, Elie Madie and Rocky Gathercole and more. The following were some of my favorites by far.

Overall all my week was quite a light one in comparison to fashion weeks I’ve covered in the past. I’ll have more  NYFW posts up soon. Which collection was your favorite? -T.S

Raka! Fitmatch Fitness Class and App

Summer is here and we all want to feel healthy! Why not try out a new fitness class to start. Or better yet find a workout buddy and gym wherever you are in the world! That’s what the Fitmatch app does. I know by personal experience  going to a class on your own can be less appealing than going with a friend.  Who wants to struggle in a class without a friend  who is feeling the burn just as bad as you are? NO ONE! The app’s 5 steps help customize the app to your liking, find a gym near you and match you to people based on the type of workout you like. You then can chat and finally meet up at a class with your new workout pal.

To learn more about this app bloggers and press were invited to a Raka Fitness class led by Fitmatch creator and celebrity trainer Ngo Okafor. The class was held on the rooftop of the Clay Health Club + Spa located near Union Square in downtown NYC. The class was set to a mix of reggae music which made it that much easier for me to get moving. To my rejoice we worked out in intervals with breaks in between. Cardio, strength training, and boxing is what consisted of the class. By far my favorite part of the class were the boxing intervals and my least favorite, those planks and burpees! Each interval had a Raka twist adding intensity to each movement.

A cool down of stretches on yoga mats brought the class to an end. The class was followed by an array of healthy chicken wraps, fruit and protein shakes. I didn’t get a chance to stop by the spa and sauna, but plan to make my way back. As a person who doesn’t workout daily I did enjoy how strong my body felt after this class. Although the soreness was something I was not looking forward to, I still feel a difference in my body. Currently Raka is being held in NYC, but Ngo plans to expand his classes around the USA.
