Thursday 22nd March:  Another night of NO sleep….Even after my Green Muffin fest! I was so upset about the death of my iphone! Of all the times my iphone had to die why on  ‘Blog Tour NYC’ . Luckily I had bought my mini laptop to New York, it was great to speak to my parents via Skype at 5AM (NY time) I really was hoping to speak to my daughter whom I was missing terribly, but she had already gone to school (4 hours ahead time difference) …. I felt deflated……..but in typical Hannah fashion I picked myself up, got dressed into something a little patriotic.. went for my  Tryp Hotel. breakfast! This is when Blog Star super Star Pippa Jameson – Pippa Jameson Interiors saved the day!  Pippa kindly lent me her iphone for the day, I now could take photographs at the next event on the Blog Tour itinerary the AD show 2012 Breakfast in my Patriotic outfit with Blog Tour Blogger Andrew Dunning

We left the Tryp Hotel. at 9.15am to hail down a New York Yellow cab, and in typical  Emily Peck - ACHICA Living fashion it ended up in some random photoshoot while poor Andrew Dunning – APD Interiors was left to Hail the cab… we had some giggles!

At last we had finally arrived at the AD show 2012 the sun was shining bright and I started to feel good…..Once inside the show and our press badges collected, it was time to head to the  Modenus booth to meet the Blog Tour NYC’ sponsors.  Du Verre Hardware (Gina Lubin)  Samuel Heath (Vanessa Allen)  Spirit of Sports, (Leslie Carothers) along with Product designers Ross Edwards and Daniel Moyer who were presenting a piece of their own work.

It was fantastic to meet  ‘Blog Tour NYC’ sponsor  Modern Aire,and listen to Trevor from Valliant Sales talk passionately about the  Modern Aire products on the booth. The booth had been designed by BlogTour2011 Susan Serra it was interesting to see and learn about the collaboration as well as getting a chance to see up close Susan’s business Bornholm Kitchen  (I highly recommend you check them out! such quality)

We had fun again with Blog Tour NYC’ sponsor Miele, you may have previously read in PT 4 Madonna does Miele post!  It was great to learn more about the  Miele Better Living campaign. Attendees experienced the unlimited possibilities of what can be created with Miele Culinary appliances in Miele’s live culinary exhibition space. Consumers, architects, designers and foodies alike had the opportunity to touch the products and feel the brand through a combination of engaging experiences.

    Hannah, great insight into all the little pieces that make the AD Show so special. At the end of the day, for me, my highlight was the fantastic tweetup since i was unable to attend any other function that week. Also, a big thanks that you added Bornholm Kitchen to your post – what an honor to make it in your blog! With so many awesome products (I took close to 700 pictures myself) I’m thrilled! As I said before, New York is NOT the same with you gone! When are you coming back? ;)
