There’s nothing more glamours than freshly fallen snow in Central Park. Recently Winter Storm Jonas turned it into a magical winter destination clad in over two feet of snow. When walking through the park the day after the storm, I felt like I was vacationing at a ski resort in Aspen rather than strolling through Midtown Manhattan.

For most people a holiday stroll consists of walking around the neighborhood and looking at everyone’s Christmas lights. But for me it consists of walking around Central Park West in a Red Vinyl Check Swing Coat reminiscent of Blair Waldorf’s preppy Manhattan style.
I think it’s safe to say that this red coat from Topshop is truly the perfect holiday ensemble. It’s festive, stylish and perfect to put over any holiday dress. It’s also just a great statement coat for the warmer winter months. And yes it really does make you feel like you should be on Gossip Girl.
Over the weekend, my Mom came to visit me in New York. Together we enjoyed two of the first nice days Manhattan has seen in months. After a couple mimosa-filled brunches, we explored The High Line and Central Park. According to my Mom’s Jawbone, we burned tons of calories with all the walking we did. While it’s sad to see a beautiful weekend end, I know there will be many more to come.
This may come as a surprise to you, but in between work, laundry, bills, and everything else, I spend most of my days completely stressed out. So stressed in fact, that I often forget to give myself a moment of rest. Over the weekend, however, my pattern of stress followed by more stress, all changed when I treated myself to a mini “Staycation” in Central Park accompanied by a pretty blue bottle of neuro BLISS, a delicious tropical citrus lychee flavored drink designed to reduce stress and relax the mind.
Its ingredients of chamomile, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants including L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea have been found to reduce stress, produce relaxation, and enhance focus resulting in the ability to concentrate on one’s goals – not all the outside pressure. I must say from my blissful afternoon in Central Park, a bottle of neuro BLISS was a welcome addition to a much-needed moment of relaxation. Not only did it speed up the relaxation process by rejuvenating my body and mind, it also made my moment of relaxation last long after it came to and end. All varieties of neuro drinks have only 35 calories per bottle (low calorie = low stress) and contain no artificial colors or flavors. Best of all, they can be found at your local grocery or drug store. So you too can easily pick up a few bottles of neuro BLISS for a blissful moment of your own.
neuro BLISS Stress Study:
It’s no secret that the majority of Americans are stressed out. To get to the heart of the widespread stress epidemic and what can be done to solve it, neuro BLISS conducted a Stress Study. It revealed that nearly 50% of Americans spend at least half their daily lives stressed out. The cure for stress varies, with 89% agreeing that a night out on the town does little for stress relief. More than half admit a vacation is what they need the most, while a quarter say personal time would help treat their stress.

There’s that time of year in New York when in spite of the fact that there are still a few cold days and nights ahead, you trade in your black winter bag for a brighter spring bag to spend an afternoon seeing Central Park in early bloom. Recently, I took a spring stroll in Central Park with my Dad and I couldn’t help, but shoot tons of pictures of the park in its early spring glory. I only hope this summer isn’t as brutally hot as the last one.
