DAY TWO – UP AND RUNNING!
Wednesday 21st March AM: I woke up in the middle of the night and freaked myself out. I had no idea where I was it took a few moments to realize I was actually still in bed in my Bedroom at the Tryp Hotel. After totally freaking myself out, I didn’t get much sleep. Come 6am I had the bug to go for a run, I put my running gear on and headed down to the Tryp Hotel Gym, well I wouldn’t really call it a gym just a space with a couple of running machines, cross-trainer and some weird contraption that I didn’t even start to figure out! It felt really good sweating it out for 30 minutes on the tread mill with my ipod on…… then it was time for breakfast.
I throughly enjoyed my Tryp Hotel. breakfast, which consisted of scrambled eggs, natural yogurt raspberry sauce and a pastry (Yes I know what a greedy piggy I am) well actually I was dressed in Green on this day, so more like a greedy frog! RIBIT! 😉 After Breakfast it was time to hail a cab for ‘Brunch’ with ‘Blog Tour NYC’ sponsors Poggenpohl Kitchens and Blanco at the A & D Building
I shared a Yellow Cab with Pippa Jameson Interiors and Emily Peck – ACHICA Living we instantly clicked with lots of fun and giggles, the cab dropped us off a block too early from the A & D Building so we had some fun by styling our own little photoshoot, which actually became a ‘MUST DO IT EVERYDAY’ thing with Emily Peck. (This will be featured more throughout the diary)
‘Blog Tour NYC’ had been invited to an exclusive product launch event by sponsors Poggenpohl Kitchens and Blanco The launch included the debut of the new chef-inspired Eric Ripert Kitchen by Poggenpohl. This one-of a kind interactive event explored the kitchen trends, new products including never before introduced and savory cuisine.
We all were welcomed into the showroom and drinks soon were being served by two very hunky American boys (who the girls & boys found to be a bit of eye candy) we had chance to mingle and introduce ourselves to our sponsors Poggenpohl Kitchens and Blanco
Christy Emens introduced the newest material in luxury that is in actual fact centuries old. Made of authentic fireclay, the exclusive BLANCO CERANA™ is durable, beautiful…and most importantly, versatile. With two different corner styles, this reversible sink is a perfect fit for both traditional and contemporary kitchens.
Next up was a fantastic talk by Ted Chappell Poggenpohl CEO USA. Who introduced Blog Tour to ‘The Kitchen at the Centre of Home Architecture’ the New +ARTESIO Kitchen Concept. New Thinking has a tradition at Poggenpohl. Shown for the first time in a new walnut veneer, a completely new concept designed in collaboration with Hamburg-based star architect and designer Hadi Teherani.
