About Rendezvous En New York

Who Am I?

So to tell you a little about me, I am a major food enthusiast, all kinds and all cultures; cooking show viewer from PBS to Food Network; NYC girl; art lover from the time of Pharaohs to Banksy; makeup hoarder from Wet n Wild to Chanel; shoe fanatic about anything that actually fits; bargain shopper ALWAYS; anime watcher, tree-hugger, amateur photographer, forever student, and last but not least a shower singer superstar! I debated starting a blog for over a year and finally after reading way too much and way too many other blogs I took the plunge.

What is a Rendezvous?

Rendez-vous is French for a date, appointment or a fortunate chance meeting. I will be treating you to my version of New York on multiple rendezvous. This is my life, for the most part, it is unpretentious even though I love art and spend lots of times in museums. I like to try new things so I will tell you if it was worth it. Have you heard of something new that you would like to see? Well, I’m game for trying anything new (within reason).

What is this blog about?

This is my life, for the most part, it is unpretentious even though I love art and spend lots of times in museums. I like to try new things so I will tell you if it was worth it. Have you heard of something new that you would like to see? Well, I’m game for trying anything new (within reason).

This blog is about me, my life in New York City, my travels, and my many varied interests, from exciting to mundane without an unlimited budget. I’m trying to show that even though New York can be crazy expensive, it really doesn’t have to be unless you want it to be. I will take you on multiple rendezvous’ with me alone and sometimes others. There are enough people doing the same thing and going to the same places. How about we do something different? Come let’s meet up and see how a native New Yorker spends time in one of the most exciting cities in the world where there’s always something new. I would love to share it with you!!  Join me while I leap!

 

P.S. You can also follow my adventures on across social media and learn more about me there! You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Bloglovin’ and G+

Until our next rendezvous…

XOXO

    After browsing other posts of B.U. participants from far flung places, yours brought me back home.
    Looking forward to more.

      Thank you, please take a look at the archives for my posts and follow to get more!

    Thank you for stopping by Celeste. I love my city and I am always learning more about it , so I decided to share. Have a lovely day as well.

    I saw your comment on Ellie Knowles’s blog and I thought I can help build up your following. I must admit I have never been to New York and I am a little intimidated by the sheer size of it, but I sure am willing to learn about it. Good luck with your blog.

    • March 7, 2015 at 12:50 PM

      Thank you so much! That is very kind of you. NYC can be intimidating, I get that. It’s definitely best seen with a local so you feel less stressed. Well as a suggestion, you don’t have to go to the NYC proper to enjoy the state, upstate is lovely with the Niagara Falls, mountains, countryside, vineyards, ranches and small towns. Maybe that would be more your speed with more room to breathe , ha ha. I love those things too, just don’t get to see them very often, maybe a trip in Summer.

    I loved my visit to NYC over 10 years ago. On the weekend I went to my best friend’s 40th birthday party and her theme was New York City – so many great costumes. She had Central Park set up and the red carpet for New York fashion week and the statue of liberty. She even hired an actor to be a hot dog man and hand out the hotdogs. We had a great time.

    • March 9, 2015 at 12:13 PM

      Nice! I’m glad you enjoyed your trip. Where did you visit before the party? And when are you coming back? Ha ha!

  5. March 14, 2015 at 4:11 PM

    Hello! First of all, thanks for the nice comment you left in my little corner of the world… I’m trying to be more conscious of seeing what others are sharing, and I have to say, this little western Canadian girl actually got to spend some time in New York a few years ago and I LOVED it… And while the odds I get back there soon aren’t that great, I still love seeing what’s happening there, and I’m looking forward to spending time reading your posts! One thing – I’m looking for the WordPress ‘follow’ option to follow you and not seeing it here, which may possibly mean I’m not looking hard enough, which has happened. Is there one? From what I could see, it’s not an option under the ‘follow’ widget (?) at the side.

    • March 15, 2015 at 12:28 AM

      Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you get to visit soon. I am glad you enjoyed my posts. I believe you have to click on this reply to see my follow button.

    • March 15, 2015 at 12:36 AM

      Or you can go to the reader in WordPress, click on blogs I follow enter this blogs name and add me that way. Hope that helps.

    hey, i’ve really enjoyed your blog! as a small point of improvement, the text on the front image on the main page is hard to read because the text is thin and white, and there is a lot of white in the picture. not trying to be harsh, just a thought that could improve the already awesome blog you have! 🙂

    • March 17, 2015 at 7:37 PM

      Thank you very much for the praise, the header pictures alternate , so it doesn’t always look like that. The theme was updated and that’s what they came up with. But there isn’t the option to change my title’s color unfortunately.

  7. March 24, 2015 at 6:20 AM

    Hi, I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. I hope you don’t find this spamy, I really like your blog. https://bekitschig.wordpress.com/2015/03/24/liebster-award/

  9. March 28, 2015 at 8:17 PM

    your site looks interesting. I’ve never been to NYC. I’ve flown into Newark several times but never turned north.

    • March 28, 2015 at 8:19 PM

      Thank you. In the meantime till you make it through JFK or LaGuardia you can make a virtual trip through my blog.

      You’re welcome. I am also from Queens! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Please come back again.

  11. April 25, 2015 at 3:50 AM

    Nice blog. It makes me homesick. I’m a New Yorker who moved to Minnesota (oh, I dunno, it seemed like a good idea at the time), but I now live and blog in Britain.

    • April 25, 2015 at 8:32 AM

      I’m glad it brought back some good memories to visit my blog. Where did you live in New York?

  12. July 21, 2015 at 12:21 AM

    Your site is impressive and it includes everything about NY.

    • July 21, 2015 at 12:24 AM

      Have you ever visited? Thank you for visiting my corner of the web! Come back often!

      • July 21, 2015 at 12:28 AM

        I have visited several times. I will one day return during the summer. I don’t do the cold any more. Lol!

        • July 21, 2015 at 12:32 AM

          Well right now its so crazy hot , I wouldn’t advise it unless you love to sweat. I prefer Fall and Spring, so beautiful here.

  13. July 21, 2015 at 1:58 AM

    So, I have hit the follow button (yay :D) ! Looking forward to reading your posts!

    • July 21, 2015 at 2:02 AM

      Ha ha! Thank you for following and finding me.I figured you were busy revamping the blog. Thank you so much for the peer audit as well.

      • July 21, 2015 at 2:09 AM

        Yeah, I was! I had another blogger suggesting I change the footer widgets, so I thought I should do it before I put it off for an indefinite time. You have a great blog! I live in India, but New York is one of the places that I’d definitely love to visit if I can in future; it would be nice to see the city up close through your posts!

        • July 21, 2015 at 2:19 AM

          I will deliver as much of up close New York to you as I can!

  14. July 30, 2015 at 12:28 AM

    I am jealous of the way you designed your blog and your great writing skills :'( xD You one stylish foodie

    • July 30, 2015 at 12:33 AM

      Thank you! I took the time to figure things out, it took a while and I’m still working on the writing. I don’t just write about food though that is one of my favorite subjects.

  15. August 30, 2015 at 6:25 AM

  21. January 7, 2016 at 3:36 AM

    Found you at the right time as I have a trip to New York coming up this year! 😀

    • January 7, 2016 at 10:29 AM

      I hope you gave a great trip and that my blog can give you lots of ideas of what to do. And if you have any questions let me know. When are you travelling?

      • January 8, 2016 at 9:27 AM

        I will ask you for sure. :). We are over from the 27th of August for two weeks. Are there any events or festivals going on we should keep an eye out for? 😀

        • January 16, 2016 at 11:56 PM

          Always… Free Summer concerts almost every day in the city parks. Too many to name I’m the comments but do check http://www.nycgo.com (the city’s official website) regularly you’ll see the latest concerts because there are usually three to five running at the same time and they haven’t announced line ups yet. There’s always Shakespeare in the park, the outdoor free movies, restaurant week, Charlie Parker Jazz Fest, AfroPunk Fest, etc..

          • January 18, 2016 at 11:22 AM

            Wow! Sounds like we will be kept busy on our trip lol

            • January 18, 2016 at 11:27 AM

              No problem. Yes the summers are very busy.

              • January 19, 2016 at 3:27 AM

                Which is good 🙂 was a bit worried two weeks might be too long lol

                • January 19, 2016 at 3:42 AM

                  Nope two weeks will fly and you always have the beach.

                • January 19, 2016 at 3:42 AM

                  And Coney Island amusement park.

            • January 18, 2016 at 6:20 PM

              Yup Summertime is the best time! Well as long as you like the heat.

              • January 19, 2016 at 3:38 AM

                Heat will be fine. We have been to Japan in July / August which is boiling hot and humid haha

    Wonderful blog… I always thought New York is very expensive but reading your blog makes me feel like it isn’t. Plus, there are so many wonderful places. Love it. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • February 9, 2017 at 9:54 AM

      It can be, but I’m not wealthy. I find things to do that are in my price range or free. New York city always has amazing free things to do all year long. So I try to take advantage of them. Thank you for visiting me!

      • February 13, 2017 at 9:46 AM

        Thanks for sharing those things with us, I would surely bookmark your blog for the day I visit NY 🙂

        • February 13, 2017 at 4:39 PM

          You’re welcome, but you don’t have to have a trip planned to read the blog, it can give you inspiration to do different things where you currently are now.

          • February 15, 2017 at 9:11 AM

            true that… I live in India right now. 🙂 Thanks for the tip 😉
