The two things you need to master to make your dreams come true: Glimpse TV with my neighbor Nell Alk

It was a beautiful May evening. I was delightedly surprised to see another woman my age at my building’s semi-annual rooftop garden party. (My across-the-hall neighbor has lived in the building for twenty-five years and my neighbor down the hall has had family in the building since 1945. Needless to say, they don’t generally cater to my demographic.) I gravitated toward the adorable young woman who introduced herself as Nell. Her Midwestern charm, elegant good looks, and self-deprecating humor wooed me immediately. After a longer one-on-one rooftop chat later in the summer I learned that this Green Bay, WI native is a reporter covering all things cultural, from fashion to music to food. She’s just become a top ten finalist in the Sunglass Hut’s Full Time Fabulous contest where they’re giving one lucky winner a job as a fashion blogger, an apartment in the W Hotel downtown for a year, and basically the life that every young woman who moves to New York City dreams of. (Find out more at Nell’s Full Time Fabulous blog. “Like” the posts, retweet, and give them a 5-star rating as these all contribute to Nell’s contest ranking and I really want her to win!) This morning I headed up to the eighteenth floor to interview Nell about Full Time Fabulous, the locations and content of her two surprisingly profound tattoos, the two things you need to master in order to make your dreams come true, and how to hustle with class and elegance. Enjoy our episode of Glimpse TV!
