The High Line in New York

High Line NYC city walk greenway revamped

The High Line

The High Line was a great experience for us in NYC. They’ve taken these old railway tracks and revamped them into a green walkway surrounded by tall grasses and beautiful foliage with wooden benches scattered along the walk. It was pretty busy when we were there, but still very enjoyable. The tracks are high (thus, The High Line) above street level and weave through some pretty cool buildings. The architecture around the walkway ranges from old and slightly industrial looking to brand new development. It’s a great place to go for a stroll in some greenery while still being in the big city. Here are some pictures of our walk.

Beautiful Garden and Fountain along the High Line. I loved this mystical asian-inspired tea pot fountain nestled in amongst the tall grass with the sunbeams streaming through! Amazing.

Ok, so I’ll admit it, I’ve been watching DVF’s new reality tv show lately and I’m kinda addicted. So I was super excited when I saw this building while wandering along The High Line.

BioGlobe – Terrariums

Ok, so I have a new obsession and it’s called Air Plants. They are awesome! And the best part is they are very low maintenance. We just had the Grand Opening of our new Etsy store called: BioGlobes. And in it we sell these cute little gift sets that you can make your own terrarium out of! With each gift set comes a globe, colored sand, reindeer moss, rocks, another item from nature, AND, last but not least two Air Plants. Terrariums are awesome because it’s like having a mini garden that is super stylish and you can put anywhere. They are perfect for home or office.

Air Plants are so wild looking I love it! As per the photo below they come in a variety of forms. The dark green twisted ones are one of my favorites! There does seem to be some overall discrepancy on how often and long you have to water them for. Some people say once a month you can soak them for a few hours, others say just put in water for a minute once a week. So far, from my experience they do not require very much water at all. In fact, if you water them too much they will rot! When watering I’ve been only soaking them for about a minute once a week and ensuring that they are completely dry before putting them back in their BioGlobe (i.e. terrarium) and that seems to be working out well.

Air Plants ‘technical’ name is tillandsia. They don’t have roots nor do they require soil. Just good air circulation, water once and a while, and lots of indirect sunlight. I received a good tip from a guy at the nursery where I buy my Air Plants at: he said that the more grey the plant is, the more sun it is wanting. So if your plant is turning grey be sure to give it a little more sunlight!

If you are interesting in getting a terrarium of your own please visit my new shop! Here’s the link and some pictures of the terrariums and gift sets: www.bioglobes.co

Love NYC Skating!

Gotta love skating in Bryant Park in NYC. It’s November, the rink is open for skating, and the Winter Village is in full swing! The little shops full of sparkling decorations are my favorite. It’s ALMOST like the holidays have already started.

Hairband – Gatsby Inspired

All of this talk about the Great Gatsby and some of the fashion trends that are popping up with it inspired me to do some crafting this past weekend. I decided to create a simple (Gatsby inspired) gold-leaf headband.

The Great Gatsby Fever

The Great Gastsby Leo DiCaprio Carey Mulligan

Leo and Carey in The Great Gatsby

 

There’s lot of buzz whirling around about the upcoming film of the classic tale of ‘The Great Gatsby’. This is also showing up in fashion, the roaring 20’s are making a comeback.

From intricate lace detailing to romantic beaded hairbands there’s lots to choose from to add a little 20’s to your style.

The film is said to be in theaters starting May 10, 2013. I’m a huge Leo fan and with other big names such as; Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, Isla Fisher, and Jason Clarke I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
