Meet my new BFF, named Kukie! The cutest lil chick ever. And yay for having an indian summer. I have to admit I kind of put away my sandals and was ready to start wearing winter sweaters and suddenly it got warm again! I love good weather in Autumn. And if you're wondering what I am wearing: my jumpsuit and sandals are from Forever 21, earrings from Sweden, bracelet from a SOHO street seller in New York.

Look at those amazing illustrations! They are made by the talented Mara Louise Cespon, a student at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. A couple of months ago she asked me permission to illustrate photos from my blog. Last week-end I got some in my mail box! I really love the way she draws. Check out her tumblr with explanations here, and with all her beautiful work here! Thank you Mara!

Don't forget to turn HD on!
This is a video I made in Final Cut Pro with a mix of random videos of my summer. I filmed in Belgium, Sweden, Italy and the USA, so this is kind of a summery of my summer. And let's say it another time: don't forget to turn HD on!!

On one of my last days in New York, I went to MoMA PS1. It's not the crowded MoMA midtown Manhattan located one, MoMA PS1 is an extension of MoMA and it's in Long Island, neighborhood of Queens.
After going to the beautiful museum we took a walk around Long Island and we found this place with an amazing view.
And of course, we couldn't leave New York without having a look at the beautiful Grand Central Terminal. Remember the first scene of the pilot episode of Gossip Girl here?!
Bye bye pretty New York! Hope to be back soon.

One day we rented bikes and we did a tour through Central Park. On the bike we could see a lot of the beautiful park in a short amount of time. Recommended!
Afterwards we ate sushi for lunch. Good, because I was starved after that bike ride!
The next day we went to Williamsburg in Northern Brooklyn. I had heard a lot of good things about this neighborhood so I was excited to go there. Lots of artists, musicians, writers, creative people live here!
We went on a Saturday so we could go to several markets, like the indoor 'Artists & Fleas' Market where emerging artists, designers, vintage collectors and DIYers sell their wares. I saw so many pretty things! Besides that we went to some art galleries, second hand shops, boutiques...

Then we headed back to Manhattan via the Brooklyn Bridge. But before walking across the bridge, we went to the gorgeous Brooklyn Bridge park. In this park you have an amazing view of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline! It is a perfect place: sitting on the lawn, looking at the beautiful view, just like you're in a movie or something.
Walking across this bridge is just amazing!
