New Stores

Flashbacks from NYC:)

NYC Skyline

Flying high over NYC:)

Dianne and I have finally had a chance to come down from our high of going to NYC and our jammed packed 4 days in one of the greatest cities in the world. Saying that it was a place like no other would be a huge understatement to say the least. Several times while we were there, the story of The Country Mouse & The City Mouse kept popping in to my head:) {Y’all can only guess which ones we were:)}

Our primary reason for heading to New York was to participate in the Free Spirit Rose launch event for Lord & Taylor that we were honored to be a part of – right on 5th Avenue at their flagship store in the heart of Manhattan.

Lord & Taylor – 5th Avenue


Even from the outside, we could feel that this was going to be an experience like no other.  The store front windows were gorgeous and their exquisite details of the free spirit rose were amazing.

These pictures of the store front windows were beautiful and only made our imaginations wonder even more and anticipate what was waiting for us inside:



Free Spirit RoseThe Free Spirit Rose is certainly not a rose that you would soon forget.  It’s colors are stunning and each more beautiful than that next. Lord & Taylor was literally trimmed from head to toe with the Free Spirit Rose. From the runners on the floors, to the wrapped columns… from the pink champagne with floating rose petals that were plentiful, to the fresh bouquets of roses that were passed out to attendees… they thought of EVERYTHING!!

The flattering compliments made about NuMe were humbling and very appreciated:)  Our Lavender Rose box sets were in perfect sync with so many other rose themed products that helped complete the Free Spirit Rose collection.  There were rose scented candles, serving pieces with roses, art pieces, hand-made paper goods with roses, clothing with roses; the list goes on and on:)

Empire State Building

Before we knew it, the event wrapped up and we took to the streets again.  From the perspective of this Country Mouse, I just knew I couldn’t make it all the way to NYC without seeing the Empire State Building.  (Yes Mom, I went there. And No, we didn’t go all the way up…. we needed to experience some New York pizza – and a girl’s gotta eat…)  Needless to say, the Empire State Building is even prettier at night.

We needed to see and do and experience as much as we could during our stay, packing in venues like Pou in China Town, Little Italy, Blue Bottle Coffee, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Berg’n Coffee Shop in Brooklyn, to die for Korean burritos at Domo Taco, riding the Staten Island Ferry, seeing the statue of Liberty, catching a play on Broadway (She Loves Me) and of course Times Square at night:) Our list goes on and on, but if I kept uploading the pictures, my computer is sure to crash…….:):)

Michael & India

Our trip to NY was made even sweeter because of the Georgia raised tour guide that happens to be a Brooklyn resident.  Dianne’s daughter India, and her husband Michael, were gracious enough to let us crash at their place during our stay.

For me, having folks living in the city to show us around made my first-time NY experience so much more amazing.  They knew exactly where to go for the best Pho, the BEST Bubble Tea and as for the subway…… you can forget it.  I would have ended up in some suburb of Cleveland the way I was going.  Walking down the street where they live is like walking down Sesame Street:)

We can’t thank them enough for opening their home to us, and a special thanks to Michael too for putting up with listening to us hens jib-jabbing into the wee hours of the morning:):)

Although we had a terrific time, leaving was definitely bitter-sweet for Dianne. She was soaking up every drop of India that she could and couldn’t resist getting enough hugs stored up with her to take back to GA.

Buzzing around the city, a quick plane ride and we’re back in the South – ready to jump in to the soap shop again and keep the good smells com’in:):)

Love y’all,

Marie & Dianne
