Wow where to begin this post. 1) Sorry for being so MIA this whole last month and a half. It feels like I haven’t had a second to myself to just get online and blog. Now that I’m working in NYC I have super long hours and am just also trying to experience the city with new friends and coworkers. 2) I mentioned new exciting blog projects that I’m really excited about but that are taking more time than I expected. They are coming soon I promise!IMG_0964.jpg

These last few months have been a dream. I’m living the life I’ve always wanted- being in NYC and then traveling on the weekend to whatever city I pretty much want. It’s amazing to take a step back and just feel grateful for it all- I’m truly so lucky. I’ve realized more and more that school is a time to work your butt off so that you can enjoy life later (aka if you’re in school, work hard now so you can play later). New York City is so incredibly beautiful and the perfect place for blog pics. I took these with my friend Natasha (see her guest post here) back in November but am just now getting around to posting them. Since it’s been so cold lately these pics are still applicable. Lol I encountered my first snow storm last week and it was somewhat intimidating with the wind and slush but nonetheless was a fun experience of trying to walk and not die. Cant wait to go back to NYC this week!

I feel like being in cold cities like ones in the Northeast requires some serious bundling- I’d like to consider myself a pro-bundler at this point. Lol I love this outfit because the jacket brings a lot of color but the scarf can be doubled as a poncho/ shaw! The sweater is so warm too that it’s the perfect piece for under my jacket.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI have been wearing this rose gold necklace everyday since I got it in November. It has the coordinates of NYC on it to remind myself to not give in to my fears and do things that scare me (one of which is moving to NYC). The creator of Amoorella Jewelry made it for me and I’m in love with this piece! Be sure to check out their shop– customized jewelry would make the perfect gift!

On a lot of my weekend stays I try to go Laduree because is the most beautiful macaroon and tea restaurant- this particular time, the couple next to us asked if we wanted their pastry basket- the answer was ‘heck yes’. lol

At the end of the weekend, I met up with my friend Stephan and we ventured into Williamsburg to get brunch at Juliette- it was amazing and I’m so hooked on their croque monsieur!

Ugh don’t you see what I mean by NYC being so beautiful?! I love it so much- the pic above is from Soho and is one of my favorite buildings! Leave your recommendations for me for brands you shop when you’re looking for warm clothes!
