New York City Bound

Another housekeeping post - so if you're only interested in ohmahgerd, lipstick swatches, you can safely skip this - otherwise, it's pretty amazing stuff, if I dare say so myself. You might have noticed my posting has been a bit sketchy these past couple of weeks, and the simple reason is this: we're moving to NYC.
An old photo from an NYC trip we took two years ago - hence the short do!
Yes, I know, NYC!!! This past week we just came back from a short trip to the city we took in order to find and rent an apartment, which was very successful (you can follow my exploits from the trip on Instagram, if you wish), and by the end of next week, our stuff is going to be professionally packed up and driven across the country to Manhattan. It's all very exciting, maybe except for the part when we'll be living in our current apartment without any furniture and just a couple of suitcases - but ya know, you gotta do what you gotta do.

All this madness means that blogging is a bit challenging these days, but fear not, I'm planning to make it up to you once we settle in a bit. The biggest reason we're moving is because of Mr's awesome new career opportunity, but for me, due to some visa restrictions, it means no job for quite some time - but all the more time for blogging, right?

Big hugs to all of you and let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations for must-see places in New York or anything we should absolutely know, since we're pretty new to all of this :) Thank you for reading!

  6. Amazing! Good luck with the move. I like how you're moving from one Lipstick Bandit occupied city to another. The world can be so cozy sometimes. ;)

    1. I know! It's so funny, we previously lived in Vancouver, BC - but I never met Dani, that was before Lipstick Bandits. And now I'll get to hang out with Xiao and maybe MM? Liz, you travel to NYC occasionally too, don't you?

    2. I try to go as much as possible but visiting Xiao was only my 4th time in NYC. When I get a job and income is steady, I'll visit you too! ;)
