Love, Life and Growing Pains: from A True New Yorker in True Love

Have you ever read The Secret? I live by it.  It’s based on the law of attraction.  If you truly believe in something and exude the right energy, you can make it happen.  Read it.  I promise it’ll change your life.  Over the past eight years, I’ve had five apartments, five roommates and the time of my life living year by year in New York City.  My whole career developed before my eyes thanks to the laws of The Secret, dedication and the relationships I’ve formed with the wonderful people of the beauty industry.  Enter a new chapter…

My story, as I knew it, and as you knew it, too, was about the writer who lived in NYC.  I didn’t just live in NYC, I believe that the energy and culture of NYC keeps me alive.  I know, very Carrie Bradshaw, but it’s real.  Only unlike Carrie, mine includes a real love.  No Mr. Big bullshit.

As Ms. Bradshaw said herself, “I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.”  I found it.  The real, can’t-live-without-each-other type.  With love comes marriage and with marriage comes compromise.  I’m learning that the art of compromise is to continue to put each other first without losing yourself along the way.

So I’m excited to announce that we’re Jersey bound. Getting married next June, we’re both setting up shop in Hoboken (for a little while at least).  Of course, I’ll be in NYC for work daily for events, meetings and shoots, as I can’t live without it.  I like to consider NYC my first real love, and even though we’re just hopping right across the water it’s an adjustment.  But I’m excited to celebrate what’s next…

My last week living in NYC (for now) was appropriately spent with the DKNY team.  I couldn’t think of a better way and can’t wait to show you what we worked on.  Here’s a sneak peek at behind the scenes of our latest project.  Yes, so New York… so me.

    Hi Jeannine!

    I admittedly love all that positive thinking stuff too – and am a die-hard NYC fan. Can’t get enough.

    You look awesome! So happy for you and your man! Good luck to you both <3
