It’s been a hot minute since I wrote a blog post. I guess you can call me an “occasional blogger.” One who wishes she was like all the motivated and consistent bloggers she follows on Instagram but instead works a full time job and then after spends her little bit of free time going to the gym, going out with friends, or just unplugging from the social media world.  When the weekends do come and I have a spare minute, I haven’t made the effort to take photos, especially since now it’s freezing outside or…

Two weeks ago, I finally visited the ‘Camp: Notes on Fashion’ exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Although, I live a short walk across the park from the museum, it took me this long to visit the exhibit, which started in May and ends beginning of September.  The star-studded Met Gala back on the first Monday in May commenced the unique theme of the exhibit.  This year’s theme was inspired by Susan Sontag’s essay “Notes on ‘Camp’” published in 1964. After skimming her essay in preparation for the Met Gala and exhibit, I interpreted…

Cue my favorite quote from one of my favorite movies, The Devil Wears Prada: “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” I have to agree with Miranda Priestly, it seems like florals are always the ‘it’ pattern for every season. Although, you can count on any store or runway featuring this print, I can’t complain because I love everything flowers. Today’s style post, not only features florals, but it’s also a dress that is perfect for the upcoming warmer days and even weddings!  Wedding season is officially here, because whenever I log onto any of my social media…

The minute the weather gets above 65 degrees it’s officially dress, skirt, or in this case romper season, so say hello to my pale legs.  Most likely, I’m probably blinding people with my pasty legs, but don’t worry because whenever the sun is out and I have some down time, I’ve been working on my pre summer glow by sitting in Central Park. Although, by the looks of these photos, back-up reinforcement like some sort of self tanner might be needed. Anyway, in today’s style post, I busted out my new romper from Cotton On. …

Chattering teeth, runny nose, rosy cheeks, numb fingers, and wind blown hair, is the norm for me while trying to take photos outside during the winter months.  Sure, most of my photos (well at least I hope) look somewhat decent, but taking photos in the frigid temperatures is anything but glamorous.  In between takes you will find me bundled up in a heavy coat and googling the nearest cafe where I can just warm up for a bit before bearing the cold again.  I could just be smart and wear my winter coat while taking…

If there’s any night to dress to impress, it’s New Year’s Eve, because there’s no better way to ring in a new year than wearing your best party outfit.  My New Year’s Eve plans are quite different this year by just going to a house party instead of some NYC club, like I did last year, but I still might wear this metallic jumpsuit because I love it so much.  Plus, there are worse things in life than being the most overdressed party guest. But, have no fear, if I don’t decide to wear this…

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to trade the autumn decorations for all things Christmas and fully embrace the Christmas season (which I’m sure many of you have already done well before Thanksgiving).  This is my first holiday season living in New York City and the city sure knows how to celebrate.  This time of the year is so magical with the streets filled with Christmas lights, the restaurants all decorated, and on every street corner you can find Christmas trees being sold.  Although, a full sized Christmas tree wouldn’t fit in my tiny…

I have a love / hate relationship with fall.  I love the season for its fashion but hate the season knowing that winter is right around the corner.  I’m trying not to think about the long, cold, and snowy days ahead but embracing the jeans, chunky sweaters, and boots before I have to cover up my outfits with a bulky winter coat.  So keep on reading to see today’s look, which is what I like to call my so fall look because it features all of the fall fashion essentials and the beautiful colors of…

Let’s go Giants, Jets, Patriots, Cowboys, Vikings, Steelers?  As you can tell, football is not my sport. However, you put me in front of the television at a bar or with a group of my friends, sipping on a cold cider and eating delicious food and I will root for any team.  To be honest, I can watch hours and hours of football and still be confused by all the plays and rules.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to watch it, especially with a group of football loving friends who get so into…

In years past, especially during my college years, summer was always spent counting down the days until I returned to my college campus and be reunited with all my friends.  Now, I am wishing for the summer to slow down, so I can savor the warmer weather and longer days of daylight a little bit more.  This summer was my first summer in the “working world” and I soon discovered how quickly the summer days just pass by.  I would spend my weekdays eagerly awaiting for the weekends and when the weekend did arrive it…

Hello everyone! After writing my “Lessons Learned After Graduation” post a few months ago, (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here) I received tons of feedback regarding my post graduate job and tips on how to land your perfect job after college, or just your dream job in general. So in today’s post, I am talking about one very important factor in your job application process, your resume.  If you’re like me a resume is super hard to put together, because I struggle with deciding what skills and experiences are…

Have you tried everything to get flawless skin, but have found it to be one of the biggest mysteries in life? You are not alone.  No matter how much we put into finding the perfect products, they seem to work a little bit at the very outset but end up going straight in the garbage just as soon as the usual problems come back.  Looking after our face isn’t just about a skincare routine that is easy and beneficial, but it’s also about the other practices, namely being as natural as possible. While we all…

All week I spend the days eagerly waiting for the weekend and when the weekend finally arrives, I blink and then it’s Monday again.  Anyone else feel the same way?  Well I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend, I know I did by exploring Central Park and visiting new, trendy restaurants in the West Village and Soho with friends. Ever since moving to the city, I feel like I have to be stylish 24/7 and even when I do “dress up” I’m always envious of everyone’s outfits in the city. Although, I don’t feel nearly…
