I love New York City, but you all already knew that. Yes, the energy is amazing, how can one not love a city that’s so diverse and the fashion capitol of the world. But one of the main reasons I love New York so much is because I get to see my favorite cousin.
We grew up together, Remi and I. We were inseparable and did everything together. She was like my very own little doll. I would help my auntie dress her in pretty little frilly dresses, brush and braid her hair and give her all the love and attention in the world.
We lived next door to each other in Bangkok, Thailand and I would run over to her house every morning as a little girl in my pjs. My uncle had bulit us this beautiful tree house in their back yard and I remember us jumping with joy when we found out it was competed. We had all our perfect imaginary tea-parties there dressed as little princesses.
As a teenager, she’d come over and we’d stay up all night; reading romantic novels, listening to Mariah Carey and 98 Degrees. Talking all night about our dreams and goals and school and boys. Such amazing memories! I was so excited to spend the day with her in her city. But first, I had to figure out the New York City subways and get myself there!
I made it! We had the best time reminiscing our childhood days with so much to catch up on and talk about. It was the perfect day with loads of laughter, tears of joy, hugs, smiles and the perfect cup of cappuccino!

New York City Part 7: New York City Ballet
I had the best time at the Ballet while in New York City. Just like many little girls, I would dream of growing up and becoming a glamorous ballerina. Maybe it’s the thrill of being swathed in frilly pink tutu and performing on stage or being a part of something so graceful and elegant. All i know is that being a ballerina was a dream I was not immune to.
I hadn’t thought about it in forever until I was in New York City and was invited to the ballet. All those cute childhood dreams came rushing back. I was extremely excited and couldn’t pass it up! I wanted to wear something simple yet elegant and had the perfect white coat for the occasion. Being there, watching the gorgeous dancers perform was so magical, it had me beaming from ear to ear. It was one experience I will never forget!

New York City: Part 6
Martha Stewart Weddings’s 12th Annual Bridal Fashion Week Party
I’ve been in love with all things Martha ever since I was a teenager. I remember baking up a storm in the kitchen with my cousin at the age of twelve using one of Martha Stewart’s cake recipes one Sunday afternoon. I was so happy and proud of myself that day as my dad and brothers came home from work and couldn’t stop eating, until they ate the entire cake! That was the day I knew that Martha Stewart was a genius!
From her cake decorating and cook books, to her crafts, DIY projects, home décor ideas, and party planning tips – Martha Stewart does it best! You can imagine my excitement when i found out I was invited to Martha Stewart’s Starry Nights Party while in New York City. I was ecstatic. The party was everything I thought it would be, and so much more. The suggested attire was “something sparkly” and i had just the dress for the occasion!
And we got our cosmo rings on!
With my beautiful mom, St. Pucchi Designer, Rani Totman.
Their performance was absolutely amazing. I was vibing to the music all night!
