Hellllooooo friends and followers! Soooo, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. And for that I am deeply and profoundly sorry, but we can’t forget the most important rule: life happens.

I’ve spent the past month doing lots of CRAZY things including (but not limited to) attending networking events, hosting […]

Happy Blog Birthday to Me!

Happy Blog Birthday to Me!

Three years ago today, this baby blog was born. Ready for an uber-cliche stroll down memory lane? Excellent, take my digi-hand…

It was the summer of 2010 and I was living my childhood dream. I was in New York – interning with MTV and living with my best bear Hillary. […]

Hello friends and followers! HAPPY SUMMER!

Memorial Day weekend looms! The very fact that I’m sitting on my couch with all my windows open wearing shorts fills me with more joy than I can even begin to express.

It’s no secret that this city runs on truckloads of caffeine. According the Washington Post, New Yorkers drink about 6.7 times more coffee than other cities. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. This is, after all, the city that never sleeps.

With so much to do and so much to see, […]

Bi-Coastal Living

Sunsets Over Cemeteries by Nat's Apartment

Twinkling Lights

Shinies at Harry Winston


Hello friends, and happy Mental Health Monday! As evidenced by today’s rainy climate, it’s officially the most miserable time of the year. Brrr. This little bear could really do without all this moisture hailing down from the heavens. BUUUUTTT, I refuse to let it bring me down. I’ll just […]

Brooklyn Bound

Brownstones in Brooklyn


WOAH, YOU GUYS. BROOKLYN’S FREAKING COOL. As a Manhattan girl through and through, I never knew that I could fall in love so hard and so fast with another borough. Granted, I’ve only explored the tip of the Brooklyn iceberg, but I’m definitely going back for seconds. And thirds. […]
