Hello from NYC! The view from my hotel:
I thought it would be fun to really go into detail about all the stuff Iâ€™m doing in NYC so yâ€™all can see the behind the scenes action. Lots of meetings and running around in flip flops with high heels in my hands so far! 🙂
I didnâ€™t plan ahead for lunch, and a delayed landing + a surprise meeting threw me for a loop. I ended up fending for lunch at Starbucks. I shouldâ€™ve prepared a little better â€“ itâ€™s so hard to eat healthy in the airport when youâ€™re a vegetarian (and running late)!
Not a very healthy lunch, unfortunately. But a girl has to eat! I had a bagel with cream cheese, a banana, and a latte.
I was picked up from the airport and whisked to the city. Itâ€™s pretty amusing that people move faster than cars in NYC!
My hotel is uber swank. Very NYC.
After checking in, I had 10 minutes to resolve a major issue with the Operation Beautiful website (itâ€™s all straightened out now, thank goodness!) and change into appropriate attire for a meeting in the lobby with my publisherâ€™s publicists.
Publicists have a really tough job â€“ itâ€™s their duty to plan everything down to the very last minute AND make sure I get my booty to where I need to be! The ladies (Lindsay and Adenike) managing me are super helpful and organized, so Iâ€™m eternally grateful for them!
We went over basic stuff for the big interview tomorrow, but it was just nice to finally meet face to face. Feeling like I have friends in the city makes me feel more relaxed!
Sorry for the short but sweet update â€“ Iâ€™ve got to dash! I had another meeting and then Iâ€™m going to check out an giant Post-It art installation project. How cool is that?!
If you could have someone else manage any aspect of your life, what would it be? Personal assistant? Chef? Trainer?
