Reasons YOU Heart NY-And the Winner is...

I am very excited to announce the winner of the very first "Reasons YOU Heart NY" Sweepstakes! I'll admit, it was not easy to pick someone. I received so many funny, touching, unique, amazing submissions. All week, I agonized over the decision. I finally decided that instead of choosing my favorite, I would pick a name out of a hat (ok, so there was no hat, but I did select a name at random). And the winner is.....the one person out of everyone who entered that can't actually use Forever Stamps: Elizabeth Y. from Melbourne, Australia! Elizabeth, thanks so much for your amazing ideas! I loved them so much, I made a whole post out of them. And since you are unable to use Forever Stamps in your country, I was thinking I could treat you to a Shake Shack burger and fries the next time you're in town (works out to the same price as forever stamps, can you believe it?). Up to you! Thank you to everyone else for your awesome entries. I will definitely be using those as well in future posts. Here are the reasons Elizabeth loves NY:

-being able to dress up and even wear a hat without feeling like a wanker
-having license to act as neurotically as you want because you momentarily forgot you weren't in a woody allen film
-feeling like you're literally adding hours to your life by using wash and fold
-sometimes feeling like you're on holiday in spain and then being pleasantly surprised that everyone speaks english
-not being asked where you're from, because everyone assumes you're from somewhere else
