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…….

Luckily it was just down the block (or two) So off we all went on a short walk to the One57  sales office to be met by Miele, who was expecting us all…..

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’.

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!

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……….

Madonna does Miele - Snap shot from the Andrew Dunning Video

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*
