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)
