So i know the pictures above may come off as pretty random… Amd that’s exactly the point.

Reflecting on the past few days and the recent success I’ve been lucky enough to have with this blog (thank you), I began to realize that my stories may be a little bit tough to link together. However, that’s just the way my life and my passions seem to be these days. A brief outline of my recent activities may help you to understand how all of these factors come into play:

Thursday, I spent the day at another photo shoot for one of my two internships. I came to work at the other one on Friday where all day was spent talking about (and doing tasks related to) music and a variety of artists and bands. One of my best friends from college flew in for the weekend, so we spent the weekend attempting to see the very best that New York has to offer. Friday night was spent at an eclectic bar in the East Village, followed by a Saturday full of walking around and shopping in Union Square and SoHo. We then capped the freezing cold afternoon with an early dinner at Gemma at the Bowery Hotel (YUM). Later that night, we headed out to Kiss & Fly in the Meatpacking District, and all of a sudden it was Sunday afternoon and she was gone. I, of course, couldn’t let Fashion Week escape me without getting involved in some way, so I applied to help out at an event Sunday night. I was selected for the position, so Sunday night was packed full of gift bags and learning a quick who’s who of the beauty press world at the incredible Hudson Hotel.

Now I didn’t write this post simply to tell you more about myself and what I like to spend my time doing. I wrote this in an effort to explain why my posts seem to revolve around many different topics that may seem irrelevant or unrelated to each other, from fashion to music to travel to beauty to whatever else may pop into my life in between.

From here on, I hope you (continue to) enjoy it. I guess the best thing to call this would be a “lifestyle blog” because it truly is reflective of my lifestyle and the random happenings that come into play. I hope you enjoy reading, and as always, your feedback is welcome and very much appreciated!

Happy Monday!

spring on the sunshine

26 Jan

I woke up on this chilly NY morning with no idea what time it was. I was out of it, my Nyquil for this winter haze was just starting to wear off, and there wasn’t an ounce of sunshine in sight. More than anything, I was definitely not in the mood to layer up and get out the door. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to get up and on my way with the rain visibly looming outside, so I forced myself to be optimistic and look forward to what the spring (or even next week’s trip to LA) will bring. Warm up with yellows, oranges, and bold, bright colors because spring is approaching and it’s time to embrace it. Pair a vibrant lipstick with some statement polish and loud, dynamic shoes and you’re well on your way to styled for spring.

These scarves are the perfect way to spice up your winter/ spring wardrobe. They’re light and very soft (as most Donni Charm scarves are), and they find a happy medium between a scarf to keep you warm while still making it through a more temperate spring looking fresh. Donni Charm scarves have always been a favorite of mine, and the Grateful Dead line adds just enough edge to make a statement. Love!
