Unfortunately, posting has been very sporadic the past couple of weeks. If you're friends with me on Facebook (and please be!) you will have seen my posts about the non-stop problems at my condo. First, I had a water main break - one month ago today. During the time I was gathering estimates for excavation, I had an electrical short in the wiring outside the unit. The electric company came and said I needed to call an electrician asap because it was a fire hazard. Oy. In addition to all this, my old and outdated oil tank needed to be removed (and a new one purchased) before the excavators will start digging.
Yes, this rusting beast
So, after a month of dealing with all those problems, contractors and insurance people coming and going, I am truly thrilled and thankful to be writing this post from my lovely hotel room at the 70 Park Avenue Hotel in NY courtesy of Brizo, the high end faucet company. I featured two of their products in an article in my Fall 2010 issue of my mag::E::zine [although note that the product feature happened before the invitation to this event!].
Brizo hosts groups of designers, architects, writers and bloggers at Fashion Week for a series of events, including the Jason Wu fashion show and a cocktail party at the Showtime House. Shortly, I am off to a meet and greet, an educational seminar on the use of their products and then a dinner at Barbés restaurant, which features Moroccan food.
However, given the month I've had, this is looking pretty good...
More to come. Not sure I can take pics of the fashion show, but we'll see! For a great post on the 70 Park Avenue Hotel, check out The Decorating Diva.
