I'm so happy that I've finally settled in to my first real apartment! After dorming for two years, I moved in with one of my best friends, Lulu, in a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn! It's been about a month, and as I type this we are currently watching Gilmore Girls in our living with wine and popcorn, so clearly it's amazing!!Read More
It's no secret that I'm a Planner kind of girl. I love buying a fresh new agenda and filling it with all my to-do's, events, and lists! I had heard of the Erin Condren LifePlanner™ (which are supposed to be the mother-of-all-planners) so I was so excited when I got an email saying they were hosting an event for the launch of their new patterns!Read More
I'm so lucky that NYC is filled with tons of amazing bloggers, and I've met some amazing girls while blogging in New York! All of the girls I've met create amazing content and are such nice, genuine, and inspiring people!
My first blogger friends, Hillary and Tatum, I met at a blogging event in September 2016, and after MANY brunches, coffees, events, and exploding champagne bottles on Instagram Live, these blogging friends have become real-life friends! Even better, my blogging circle keeps growing by meeting and getting to know new girls!Read More
I'm back! These past few weeks have been absolutely insane with final exams and moving from the west side of Manhattan down to Brooklyn! But I'm all moved in now, (small room tour pics coming soon!) and ready to start summer!!
This outfit shoot could not have been more perfect since it was at the DUMBO color wall in Brooklyn, and since I'm obsessed with wearing this jumpsuit right now. It's perfect for that in-between time when it's not yet super warm, but warm enough that you don't need a jacket!Read More
Spring is finally here!! Last Saturday I spent the day browsing vintage shops and brunching with two of my favorite blogger friends Hillary and Tatum! It was such a beautiful day, and I finally got to wear shorts and a Tshirt! (bye bye jackets and jeans!)
Speaking of shorts, J.Crew just came out with this pair in Liberty Floral, plus solid pink and white! And as if that wasn't fun enough, pairing this fun print with a classic stripe is a match made in heaven! I can't take credit for the duo though, it's straight outta the J.Crew Style Guide (aka my bible)Read More
Donald J Pliner Mules
Ask any of my friends and they'll tell you that I have been LIVING in these shoes every since they arrived! They're crazy comfortable, SO cute, and dress up even a basic T-shirt and jeans. The black is easy and matches everything, and the red adds a punch and earns tons of compliments! Check out my full post on these DJP beauties HERE!
I've already raved about favorites like the stretch concealer and haloscope, but after recently getting a little fed-up of a million products cluttering my bathroom, I decided to try simplifying and ordered the Phase 1 Set and Skin Tint. My skin has never been amazing, but I'm hoping that by easing up on makeup and focusing on skincare, maybe i'll see a miracle! Stay tuned!

J.Crew Spring Collection
I'm in love with just about everything in the new collection, and it's arrived just in time for the warm weather!
Pixi Face Mists
Skincare has been one of my favorite areas to play around in lately, so you can imagine my excitement when a box of face mists showed up on my doorstep! Pixi recently came out with these four formulas, all for different times!
First is the Vitamin Wakeup Mist, which is so refreshing to spray on early in the morning, and then I use the Makeup Fixing and Glow Mists after makeup to set and add a dewy glow! The last one is a Hydrating Milk, which I use as the last step in my skincare at night to seal in all that moisture!
Quay is a sunglass company that makes quality sunglasses at much cheaper than designer brands. They're kind of unique in that they sit in that "middle range" for sunglasses (not cheepo $5 sunnies, but not an insane $400 Celine pair). I got the French Kiss pair, and they're one of my new favorites! The glasses range from $45-$60 a pair, are incredibly cute and you can buy them at Nordstrom!
If there's one benefit to long subway commutes, it's having time to sit and read a book (can't check instagram on an underground train). DVF's book is filled with her entire life story from her mother's startling past, her childhood, loves, career, and what life lessons made her the woman she is today. It's an amazing read and I highly recommend it! You can get it HERE.
Black, white, and red. Is there any better color combination? Not in my book. I've been obsessed wih wearing these white jeans ever since I got them, and they're so chic and easy paired with this black surplice top from Tobi! The back is a little daring, I'll admit, but it's so fun to show an unexpected flash of skin, especially since it's been warming up here in NYC (slowly, but surely).Read More
Fun is strutting through Soho or the Lower East Side for brunch with your girl gang, or wandering the West Village looking for the best margarita on friday night. In any exciting adventure, one thing that can make it better is doing it in that killer pair of shoes that everyone compliments you on!
When Donald J Pliner asked if I wanted to join in on their spring campaign, I saw both of these block heeled mules in their spring collection and fell madly in love!! Mules are one of the biggest shoe-trends for spring and summer. Heeled, flat, leather, suede, anyway you can imagine them, they are a must-have!Read More
Coachella may be coming to a close, but festival season is far from over! With Bonnaroo, Lollapolooza, Governors Ball, and so many more around the corner, your Instagram feed is about to be flooded with flower crowns, twin-bun hair, and a slew of lace rompers and bralettes-as-tops.
For my festival-inspired look, Tobi sent me this gorgeous lace romper, with a sheer mesh back and a slight bell-sleeve! I'm absolutely obsessed with it! I did have to safety-pin the front to keep the neck from opening and flashing, but other than that I LOVE it!Read More
How your skin looks can greatly affect your mood, and how you feel about yourself. Beautiful clear skin will make you feel amazing, and ready to take on the day, but a huge zit will make you want to crawl back under the covers. Here are 10 easy ways to try ad prevent those little spots, and wake up with clear, bright skin!Read More
The best down-home American comfort food served smack in the middle of Manhattan. This 24-hour cafe has everything you could ever want, from a 3 macaroni and cheese sampler and fried chicken and waffles, to the best tomato soup and grilled cheese combo that will make you miss home.
This is one of my favorite places for any meal from breakfast, brunch, to dinner, or 3 AM mac and cheese (they deliver!!) and I've never had anything here I didn't love.Read More
One amazing part of being an FIT student is getting access to Fashion Forecasting websites (that normally cost about $10,000 per year) and being able to read trends WAY ahead of the runways. (Seriously, right now they're doing trend stories for Fall 2018!). But since that's a little far away, I researched Spring 2017 trends across five different forecasters, and here are three Trend Stories for the Spring that you wont want to miss!Read More
