So everyone has been asking how the Modenus’ BlogtourNYCwas and I have to say it was so amazing, inspirational and motivating. I am not too sure where to start, so when in doubt, as my english teacher used to say, start at the beginning.
After arriving in the late afternoon, quickly dropping off my luggage at the hotel, we did a brisk walk to a nearby Isabella’s and then set about chatting up a storm, getting to know everyone.Photo courtesy of Isabella’s.
Here’s the menu for my foodie friends.
It was an early evening as many bloggers were from across the pond, so there was a tad bit of jet lag setting in (can you hear my British accent here?)
So, the actual first day started the next morning. We were up and at them to visit the Poggenpohl Showroom on Park Avenue to feast on a breakfast buffet sponsored by Poggenpohl, Blanco and Cosentino (SilestoAll above photos courtesy of Poggenpohl/Blanco/Silestone (Cosentino) Photos Lisa Goulet Design & courtesy of Poggenpohl/Blanco/Silestone
It was then a quick walk to the next stop, Michael Aram’s Showroom . Pure beauty and craftsmanship here and Michael was kind enough to talk to us about how he found his passion and he even showed us some of his new items that he is working on.Myself, Veronika Miller and Michael Aram – Photo credit – Courtney Mullins Price
Then it was off again, this time in a luxurious coach with leather bucket seats, supplied to us by Corcoran Real Estate and Miele. Guess where we were going? Luxurious real estate for sale in the big apple! Places that we could only dream about getting an inside view of.
And yes, that is a bubble chair on the left! Carrier and Company are the designers of the above loft. Take a peek at what you could be waking up to, if you lived there!
After much oohing and ahhing and a little bit of drooling, we were off to the next stop which was the Miele Showroom. And if you are like me and always trying to remember how to pronounce Miele, I picked up a great tip, it rhymes with Tequila. Now, you’ll never mispronounce it again 🙂

All the delicious food was courtesy of Chef Joey Campanaro of Little Owl, to see more photos of the event and the food, like Miele on FB and you can check out their gallery, photographed by the talented Courtney Mullins Price.
And so that was the end of Day 1…tired yet?All photos not credited are my own.
