One of my favorite ways to [get acclimated] early on in the study, and one of the simplest, is to wake up with the city. Gather the team before dawn, find an appropriate neighborhood, then cruise around together while the shopkeepers are lifting their shutters, as newspapers hit the pavement and locals step out for their morning constitutionals. The morning rush for essentials – from coffee or chai to fresh pastries and rice porridge – is a ritual virtually everywhere, making it ripe for cross-cultural comparisons. If there’s a long line, all the better: our job, after all, is to strike up conversations. — Jan Chipchase, Hidden in Plain Sight
Once you got a crappy coffee at the deli or you didn’t get coffee. Now the city is a wonderland of delicious pour-over.

Red Red Red
I’m a firm believer that you can never own too many red lipsticks. Lately, we’re obssesed with MAC’s “Ronnie Red”, named after bad girl Veronica from Archie Comics. eBay has a plethora of Ronnie Reds available at great prices. Other options include Elizabeth Arden’s or Chanel’s rouge sticks. Make those lips count!
