It may be a year-round hot-spot for visitors, with endless nightlife and miles of shopping opportunities, but New York steps it up a notch in the summer, offering the pinnacle of cultural, culinary and musical events for those wanting to lap up everything the city has to offer – and showcasing its green parks and al fresco waterfront restaurants at their best.

Situated in the heart of the Big Apple, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel offers the ideal base for a summer stay, whether guests are wanting to sample the East Coast’s tastiest treats at the Ninth Avenue International Food Festival (19 and 20 June), absorb cut-price culture, art and history at The Museum Mile Festival (12 June), or enjoy the city’s eclectic music festival, the Central Park SummerStage.

The summer-long Central Park Summer Stage festival offers numerous open-air dance, spoken word and music events from June onwards, many of which are free. All you need is a picnic and a blanket! And, with household names such as Norah Jones and Foster The People booked to perform, summer in New York is set to sound harmonious indeed!

However, for those wanting to keep it simple, the epitome of American culture and a key date in every New Yorker’s calendar is Independence Day (4 July).  New York hosts a truly impressive Fourth of July fireworks display, which is set off perfectly by a clear, summer night.  Head to one of New York’s rooftop bars or the High Line on Manhattan’s West Side, for a panoramic, unobstructed view!

Located just four blocks from the High Line, and not far from Central Park, the re-launched, nyma, the new york manhattan hotel offers cheap and chic accommodation for couples, friends and families. What’s more, the hotel provides a whole host of FREE amenities for savvy travellers, including complimentary continental breakfast, wi-fi and phone calls nationwide.

Room rates at this budget-friendly hotel start from US$184.99 per night in June and July (approx. £58 per person based on two sharing).

New Book from Caren Peterson Throws Women the Ultimate Relationship Lifeline


With millions of women handling relationships with less than ideal blunders, Peterson's new book is poised to set the ultimate cause for Venus and Mars - to unite forever.

Nationwide — Relationships are never easy, even for the most confident and experienced of women. Wanting to help women around the world avoid the pitfalls and common faults associated with finding Mr. Right, Caren Peterson’s new book could become their Bible.  True Love: Women Want It, But Can They Handle It, is in essence, a book about women and how they handle relationships badly.

However, women searching for their soul mate should not panic, as Peterson has you well and truly covered.  Containing a 4-step strategy to help any woman stay sane while waiting for their Knight to ride in, the book is poised by critics to become a saving grace to those who need a little help with life’s biggest challenge – finding true love.  “I have examined hundreds of relationships over the years,” says Peterson, who has officially released the book in digital format.  She continues, “Even though women may feel like they are alone with their problems, failed relationships actually follow a pattern that is very easy to fix.

That is why I wrote the book – to give a third-person’s perspective of the common faults and help women iron out the creases.”  Those reading the book will be treated to information on how to act during a relationship. The topics covered include ‘Frienemies’, the different types of connections that can be expected with a man, the art of a meaningful soul connection and a wealth of inspirational true love stories.

So far, the book has been received to critical acclaim.  “WOW!! This book really gets to the core of how women act in relationships” says Michelle Matlock from New Jersey, who praises the book for helping her find the man of her dreams.  As mentioned, Peterson opted to release the book in digital format.  “This is the kind of book that women will want to read wherever they are. With digital reading and e-Book readers now as popular as ever, I wanted to make sure that it would be available to those who need it – when they need it!” Peterson adds.

Therapist and Life Coach Robin May Challenges Women to Take Responsibility for Their Marital Intimacy 


“Most of us need to take time to be INTENTIONAL about INTIMACY. We need to be as focused on the intimate parts of our marriage as we are on all the other aspects of our life. We need to make intimacy as much of a priority as we do communicating, spending time or even praying with our spouses.” – Book Excerpt

Author Robin May and bookcover

Lithonia, GA  — Studies show that married couples are only intimate 64 times a year, and a shocking statistic says that 50% of all marriages end in divorce. Whether those statistics are accurate or not, many would agree that experiencing “forever after” seems more elusive than ever!

After working with married couples for several years, Robin May, licensed therapist and relationship/life coach, has come to understand that maintaining a healthy sexual intimacy is critical to maintaining a healthy, long-lasting marriage.

Understanding that the sexual frequency isn’t satisfactory to most couples, Robin, through her latest book, The 30 Day Intentional Intimacy Project – For Married Women, challenges women to do their part to change that statistic.  Unlike other challenges that place pressure on couples to be intimate every day for 30 days, this project encourages women to be reflective and responsive through simple daily assignments.

Through this type of thought & heart-provoking process, women will not set themselves (or their marriage) up for failure by starting something they can’t maintain long-term.  The book, geared towards Christian women, encourages the reader to realize that being intimate with their husbands is not only a good thing… it’s a God thing!
