GUEST HOUSE / / DAILY THOUGHTS OF A NEW YORKER

Living in NYC is not for the Weak. Our Street Corespondent Becca Outlines some of the Daily Thoughts of New Yorkers as we Swing through the Urban Jungle 

1) What is that fucking smell?

I cannot explain it, but somehow there are thousands of hideous aromas wafting through the streets of NYC. 70% of the time it just smells of piss, but there is also the halal truck scent, the smell of weed, and without sounding like an asshole, the smell of the generally unsanitary on the subway. HOLD YA NOSE HOMIES.

2) I am so fucking broke.

EVERY DAY AND NIGHT this is my most common thought. I mean I am to blame for my lack of dolla billz. Yes, I did need that blue fluffy clutch bag and that pair of black boots. I already have 6 pairs of black boots but that is not the point. Rent, food and partying also make up the majority of my 'budget'. I like to live like I am a baller, when in fact I have 4 dollars in my bank account. 

3) Get the fuck out of my way.

Why is everyone so fucking annoying? Yes please move at a glacial place, take in those gorgeous New York City images. MOVE LIKE??! Step the fuck aside for people who actually have shit to do. K BYE.

4) I AM SO TIRED

They don't lie when they call it the city that never sleeps. We work hard & play hard, which results in a serious lack of sleep. Always tired but that night out in Verboten until 5am was worth it....I SWEAR!!! 

 

5) Why is it so fucking hot? 

Currently I am sitting on a subway, skin to skin with every other disgusting sweaty New Yorker trying to get home to Brooklyn. It's 98 fucking degrees....I may pass out?

6) I'm ordering dinner later

Why would I cook? I can't cook, and if I tried it would probably taste like shit and I'd order food anyway, why waste my precious time. Literally seamless frees up 45 minutes of free time for me on a nightly basis. God bless delivery services. 

7) My feet hurt all the time

After fashion week I thought the worst was over for my feet. 18 hour days with approximately 20 minutes of sitting time (excluding bathroom breaks), but it turns out living in New York requires a lot of dedication from your feet. Maybe that's why pedicures are so cheap here? WE NEED THEM. My toes are crying.

8) Fuck this fucking subway

SERIOUSLY THOUGH. If I get fucking delayed because of bullshit train traffic on that motherfucker of an L train one more time I may actually explode. I can't wait until I am rich and famous and have a driver. That is my main goal in life!

9) I need to get a new job

I am a sucker for getting verrrrry comfortable in all aspects of my life. Working life is no exception. I think every Monday morning when I wake up at 7am I think to myself 'I NEED to get a 9-5 Monday to Friday job with nice vacation benefits and shit. However by Thursday I literally thank god that I'm not stuck in a shitty cubicle in some lame office behind a computer for 8 hours a day. 

10) I fucking LOVE New York

Yes it has its flaws, like any city does, but it's my home and I am more in love with New York than I have ever been with any boyfriend or love interest I've had. It is the most amazing and alive place I have ever been. It's actually hard to describe the electricity that flows through the people of New York. It's the first place I have truly felt myself; nobody judges or cares what you wear or what you look like. I could wear nothing but nipple tassels and a pair of moon boots and I don't think anyone would notice! My love affair with New York is far from over, and I am so beyond happy I moved here.

The Highline in Manhattan is a great place to visit to see some cool street art and graffiti from a unique vantage point. This large mural can be seen towards the north end of the park.

It is my first time at New York fashion week and I am EXCITED, but more tired than anything. The time is 5am, and I need a very large caramel macchiato. 

I arrive at Made of Milk Studios at 7am and the fun begins. As an intern, my main job is to set up before the show. I lay out seating charts and gift bags and all that kind of stuff. Then it is my job to check people in, which is juicy because I have an opportunity to stalk the outfit choices of the invitees. The biggest trend I spotted? FUR BABY! (faux of course, I am an animal lover). Everywhere I looked people were rocking the most amazing fur coats you have ever seen…EVER. The show begins and I don’t get a chance to sneak in and see it. I leave and grab a verrrry speedy lunch before heading to The Lincoln Center.

Arrive at The Lincoln Center at 1.30pm. My god is it the most amazing place. Two different photographers approached me on my way in and ask to photograph me…HELL YES..THIS IS MY MOMENT. I pose for them and admittedly enjoy my 15 seconds of ‘I am officially a Kardashian’. Then I wander into the tents to start the proceedings for the next show. TOME is one of my favorite brands of the moment so I am soooo happy I could work the show.

So it’s about 30 minutes before show time and one of my supervisors comes up to me and says ‘don’t freak out, but Sarah Jessica Parker is coming through backstage any minute. Act natural’. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? NO I WONT ACT NATURAL. WILL I JUMP ON HER AND KISS HER ..WHO KNOWS? Wow. So I stand there and in she comes, SJP, Carrie Bradshaw, GODDESS? I give her a smile; she tousles her hair and exclaims how excited she is. I make awkward eye contact and die inside No photos allows…of course. But my god it was AMAZING. The show was also extremely amazing. 

After the show I head back to the office to prepare for the After Party. Sadly I am working it and not going in to go HAM with the editors of Vogue, maybe next season? I eventually fall into my bed at 12.38am. My first 17-hour work day over, and it was worth every single second. 

It was the most worthwhile experience of my life so far. It amazing how many influential people a person can meet in one day. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity and cant wait for September ☺

Our Street Art Guru Sydney is roaming the streets of Bushwick in this gruesome weather to bring you the most rad posts yet.

This is another Bushwick-found piece, on Central Avenue. The vivid green brightens up this time of year’s dreary days of dirty snow.

Living in Bushwick, I am surrounded by fantastic street art on a daily basis. I walk by this one everyday on the way to work. It’s done by Phetus, who has done many other murals around the city that feature these creatures and others, including one right down the street from this one at the Loom building. This one is located on the corner of Thames and Morgan Ave.
