top of the rock

February 27, 2014 | 267 SHARES

Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

    I just found out about your blog and it made my heart cry. You inspired me so much and thank you for that.


Confidence comes with practice. How can you expect to prove to others of your abilities if you haven't even proven them to yourself? Hard work always pays off. So keep pushing. ?

Dear New York, thank you for constantly reminding me to keep dreaming. ?

With love with the @soleserum team, Jinna.
The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before.
Do you ever take the time to look back and see how far you've come? 
I snapped this shot at the @desigual show earlier today with the @soleserum team - what an unreal experience to be here. These designers work tirelessly to transform mere ideas into full collections. But don't forget that every designer started with a dream. 
Be proud of how far you've come. ?
Art should disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed. Creativity in expression - discover what you love by trying everything. Then practice until it no longer feels like practice. Do what makes you feel alive inside. ?
I teamed up with the awesome folks at @soleserum to head to Fashion Week in #NYC and showcase some of my favorite moments. 
This stuff soothes post-running-around-taking-pictures-in-heels feet so it's packed in my bag along with other essentials. Can't wait to take you guys along for the ride! ?

With love, Jinna.
