Carrie Bradshaw Lied: Life as a Single Writer in NYC

by Lauren Malamala
Carrie's life is enviable, but it's also not real. {credit}
A note from Tracy:
I couldn't agree more with Lauren on this post, and she's not alone. On more than one occasion, people have said, "You're a real-life Carrie Bradshaw!" And I usually respond, "Well, not really. I'm a lifestyle writer, not a sex columnist. And I don't have her shoe collection."
No fictional character embodies the idea of “the quintessential single girl in New York” than Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City. Carrie lives in a fabulous Upper East Side studio, frequents the trendiest nightlife spots, dates wealthy men from all over the world, has an amazing writing career, and owns an enormous walk-in closet filled with Manolos. What can we all take away from her enviable life? Answer: There’s a reason why she’s categorized under “fiction.”

When and Where to Splurge and Save in NYC

LIFE IN THE APPLE
by Lauren Malamala
Even the most basic lifestyle is pricey in Gotham.
Unlike most cities, even the most basic lifestyle in New York is expensive. In order to make ends meet (or at least attempt to), I’ve had to figure out where to scrimp and save in as many areas of my life as possible. Eating at fancy restaurants 24/7 wasn’t on my agenda when I moved to the city, so in no way do I feel like I’m missing out on much. I do, however, treat myself once every blue moon.

Talk about a throwback. If this exhibit doesn't leave you nostalgic for the music and city of yesteryear, I don't know what will.  Famed photographer Lynn Goldsmith started shooting rock and film legends on the streets of New York City in the 1970s, and more than 40 of her most memorable pieces are currently on exhibit at SoHo's Morrison Hotel Gallery.
