One of my absolute favourite things I did in New York City last year was hire some bikes to spend an afternoon riding around Central Park. This year I had my friend Thomas here to keep me company so we packed some summer snacks and naturally got lost amongst the trees as we both have absolutely no sense of direction. It was 34 degrees and nearly everything we did felt 100 times harder, so flying down hills with the wind in my hair and cool breeze on my face felt even better than air conditioning. As always, the universe works in mysterious ways and my pastel blue bike weirdly co-ordinated with my light whites and pastel outfit. I can’t complain, I love it when that happens. It’s also the perfect accessory to compliment my new fairy floss coloured Ellery x Graz glasses I got last week before I flew out. Unfortunately they don’t taste as good as they sound so I’m still waiting for someone to invent candy flavoured glasses. This is quite obviously a post I’m writing in a state of tired tourist deliria and a red licorice induced coma. I know what you’re thinking, is there really anything better?
