Why The Name Change?

Saturday, February 15, 2014

When I started this blog in 2009, it was created to document my life in NYC because it was a place that was completely new to me.  It was the next chapter of my life, after college.  I had moved here in 2007,  but it was in 2009 that I finally moved to MANHATTAN and my real Carrie Bradshaw adventure began (ha).  I called it The NYC Diet because it encompassed my life revolving around this concrete jungle.

Over the years, it has not only served as an ode to the city where I've come to love so much, but it has mostly served as a personal diary where I've kept my inspirations, recipes, trips, pictures, advice and personal thoughts.  It has served as a creative outlet, outside of my 9 to 5 job.

When I look back at my posts, I am reminded of that great weekend at the Jersey Shore in 2010 and my unforgettable trip to Thailand.  I am reminded of that concert I went to by myself in Bowery Ballroom and how pretty my island is when I visit it during winter.  It has encompassed my life outside of my work, when I am out of office.

Everybody has an out of office diet.  It is what happens outside of a desk, away from a computer and without a client deadline.  It is where passions form, memories are made and you do what YOU want because you WANT to.  An out of office diet isn't tied to a city or a certain chapter in your life.  What happens out of office is, simply, life.

So, welcome back, but this time to The OOO Diet. A diet that everyone can relate to.


  1. Love the thought that went into this name change! AND, I totally agree - out of the office is where the magic happens! xo

  2. I really love the new name Camille! It is original and fresh, the name definitely draws me in :)
