New York Fashion Week!!! I live near Lincoln Center, where Fashion Week is mainly located, so I see the action up close. The publicists scrambling to organize their guest lists, the crazy hair/wild make-up on models taking a quick smoke break before they walk the runway, and the stage hands hurridly changing sets from one show to the next. I was lucky to score a ticket to the Alice + Olivia Fashion Show by Stacey Bendet last night. Instead of the typical runway show, this was a "presentation", which are becoming more and more popular nowdays. At a presentation, the models pose on small stages around a large room. People mingle and are able to walk up close to the models and take pictures of their outfits, all while sipping on cocktails and nibbling on treats. Stacey herself worked the room, chatting with celebrities and guests and modeling one of her own looks. I left inspired for fall fashion, and was handed a delightful goodie bag at the door. Celebrity spottings at the presentation were Lauren Conrad, Abigail Breslin and Holland Roden. Even better was the crowd - young, chic and full of energy!

I just returned from covering the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte - I am so tired! It was a very interesting assignment. For a full week, I interviewed proud delegates, anxious politicians and eager journalists. It was definetly a shining example of our democracy in action. But this question has been swirling around this year's election season...Do conventions still matter? In a world of 24/7 news, labtops, ipads and social media...do we still need to spend such $ on the convention? After covering the DNC, I think the conventions should not be done away with, but definetly paired down, especially in light of our national debt! What do you think? So of my highlights from the week: Interviewing Caroline Kennedy, San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, Obama Election Co-Chair Eva Longoria, Tennessee delegate Ashley Judd, former Sec. of State Madeline Albright, and CBS's Bob Scheiffer. It was pretty amazing to be on the floor of the DNC when President Obama gave his speech - the energy in the room was amazing! What was your favorite part of the conventions? I'd love to hear!

Nothing like walking around in a big city, and window shopping. You stumble upon a cute, small and unique boutique. I did just this today on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Teddy's has beautiful and delicate jewelry, cute little dresses, brightly colored shirts and scarfs. A diamond in the rough! I love these hidden finds! If ever in NYC, find Teddy's on 70th and Columbus. That's my hidden gem today - what's yours?

Everyone needs a little treat! I had a travel-packed summer, and just ended a multi-city tour for work. After unpacking my suitcase for the last time... (for hopefully a few weeks ; ), and decided it was time for a little pampering. I called my favorite spa and booked a deep-tissue massage. My favorite spot is called Exhale Spa in Midtown. It did not come by recommendation, and I never saw it advertised. I merely stumbled upon it one day, and walked right in! (Sometimes those are the best spots : ) The massage was relaxing, rejuvenating and refreshing! I left feeling relaxed and very peaceful. What's your treat for yourself? A glass of wine? A scoop of ice cream? A pedicure? or a Massage? Whatever it is, make sure you do it a little more than you think you deserve. And if you are ever in NYC, try www.exhalespa.com and book a treatment. Now go ahead - TREAT YOURSELF! : ) - Megan
