Hello from NYC! The view from my hotel:
I thought it would be fun to really go into detail about all the stuff I’m doing in NYC so y’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 didn’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 should’ve prepared a little better – it’s so hard to eat healthy in the airport when you’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. It’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 (it’s all straightened out now, thank goodness!) and change into appropriate attire for a meeting in the lobby with my publisher’s publicists.
Publicists have a really tough job – it’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 I’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 – I’ve got to dash! I had another meeting and then I’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?
