Wednesday 21st March Late Afternoon: Eventually Andrew Dunning – APD Interiors hailed a NYC Yellow Cab for Emily Peck – ACHICA Living and I to meet up with all the bloggers at the One57 building for a tour to be hosted by ‘Blog Tour NYC’ sponsor Miele
When we arrived at One57 on West 67th Street, we were all slightly confused, as the building is still under construction….. it soon came apparent that the actual tour by Miele was to be taking place at the One57 sales office…….
Once inside the sales office, all the ‘Blog Tour NYC’ bloggers were given an exclusive rare opportunity to watch a video preview of the One57 (So exclusive that we had to switch off all our phones/cameras) WOW It was impressive! One57 is a luxurious billion dollar skyscraper that insiders are calling ‘New York’s next great landmark! Designed by Pritzler-Prize winning architect, Christian de Porzamparc, the 90 story glass tower is slated to be the largest residential tower in the city and houses the most expensive condominium ever listed in New York City. Completion date: Spring 2013
We had a virtual tour of One57 on how the actual building will look when fully completed. We were shown all the exclusive interior design ideas and of course we had a great opportunity to see all the fantastic ‘Blog Tour NYC’ sponsors Miele appliances that will be used throughout One57 apartments.
Disaster Stuck! My Iphone died!
Half way through the exciting Miele One57 tour – Disaster stuck….. my iphone decided it really had had enough and died on me! OK It may seem so trivial… but when you are a blogger..tweeter…serial photographer (lover of photo-shoots) you will appreciate that an iphone is a tool to your job! I was gutted! After many attempts of the hard reset…. nothing! No more pictures… no more live tweeting…. all I could think was OMG this is a ‘Blog Tour NYC’ I’ve only been in New York a day!
Miele to save the day!
By the time we left One57 my head was a mush (what’s new) I really can’t begin to express how gutted I was over my iphone disaster! How was I going to live report to all my fellow tweeters my ‘Blog Tour NYC’ adventures… and to top it off it I was just about to attend one of our big Blog Tour events with ‘Blog Tour NYC’ sponsor Miele who were hosting a dinner for all the bloggers at their showroom in the A & D Building (Nightmare)
When we arrived at the A & D Building Miele showroom, we all were met with such a warm welcome, that all the stress of my iphone disaster soon disappeared. We had unlimited amounts of champagne on ice (I’m tee total along with fellow blogger Katie Treggiden – Confessions of a Design Geek – so we sipped on nice cool iced water). It was now time to kick back relax and unwind…. it had really been a long day!
The Miele showroom smelt so good…while Miele table chef Adan Schop was preparing the bloggers some delicious appetizers… we had chance to talk to our sponsors Miele and view all the fantastic Miele appliances upclose and personal all for ‘Better Living’.
It was soon time to be seated at our tables, and enjoy the Miele Table Artist, Chef Adam Schop, prepare an innovative tasting menu for all the Blog Tour bloggers.
It was an evening of engaging, firsthand experiences with technical, functional and design aspects that embody the ‘Better Living’ components of Miele appliances from Miele Steam Oven, Miele Master Chef, Miele wine system, all explained in depth by Julie McCrary
Miele Table Artist, Chef Adam Schop, was soon into the swing of cooking and asked the bloggers who would like to help him… First up was ‘Blog Tour NYC’ superstar Will Taylor – Bright Bazaar who was a natural (who really should have a slot on Blue Peter) – Ooo I think he already did!
When Madonna does Miele
Oooo yes you’ve read this subtitle right! Next up to help Chef Adam Schop, was the lovely Toma Clark Haines – The Antiques Diva and myself… now even I was shocked to what happened next……….
YEP! you guessed it… I ended up singing Madonna Holiday followed by Madonna’s Hanky Panky! Now trust me I never got up there to show off (well maybe a little) I was egged on by ‘Blog Tour NYC’ Mamma Modenus AKA Veronika Miller! Veronika knows I love Madonna, and over 10 years ago starred in the TV hit show PopIdol, but believe me the most I sing these days is in a shower *very badly*! So when Veronika put me on the spot I thought Oooo OK Lets ROCK IT! and thats exactly what I did. Watch Madonna does Miele video thank you to Andrew Dunning – APD Interiors *It is CRINGE*
Come the end of Hanky Panky I was soon ushered off and it was back to the Conventional ovens…….
We throughly enjoyed our evening with Miele, we had great food and drink lots of fun and lots of laughter with great company as well as learning alot about our amazing ‘Blog Tour NYC’ Sponsors! THANK YOU!
We all left Miele on a big high it really had been a long day… from Brunch with Poggenpohl Kitchens Blanco to design heaven at D & D Building what a busy first day we all had! We hailed a cab back to the Tryp Hotel. thats when it hit me!….. I really needed my iphone! ……
The Big Green Muffin!
I couldn’t sleep maybe over tired, and I was so annoyed over the iphone situation..I decided to take a wander out of the Tryp Hotel. to cool my head! This is when I came across a cool New York Cafe that sold the most amazing big GREEN MUFFINS! – I throughly enjoyed my muffin while in my Hotel bed!
