Exploring The West Side

The day after Thanksgiving, John & I went to the city for a date. He really wanted to go to Gansevoort Market while I wanted to check out The Museum of Feelings. I love discovering new places to visit through Instagram! 

The Golden Year

On September 20, 1965 my wonderful grandparents got married. Fifty years later, their 4 children & 9 grandchildren get to witness a renewal of their vows. My grandparents have shown me what true love really is & I hope to have that same unconditional love.

Summer Snapshots

Summer has come to an end for me & I’ve finally gotten some time to blog since I've started school again. Here’s some random photos that I’ve taken throughout the past few months!

Free MoMA Fridays

Two weeks ago, my boyfriend & I went to The Modern Museum of Art. It was my first time at this museum & although it's crowded on Fridays, I recommend going because it's free! Check out the photos to see my favorite pieces!


Sint Maarten

I'm back after a week long trip to The Friendly Island. This family vacation was definitely one of the best I've had in years & that's saying a lot since I travel to a new island every summer! The beaches were amazing. There were planes taking off & landing every hour & clear blue water as far as the eye can see. Check out my video to see all the areas I visited & read more to see photos! Where will I go next year?

Vacation Outfits & Packing Tips

I leave for St. Martin early tomorrow morning & of course I left my packing to the last minute. But, I'm pretty good at not overpacking so here are some tips I keep in mind!

1. Use a packing cube. It helps to keep your clothes in place during
flight & its also a great way to separate clean & dirty clothes.

2. Prevent liquids from spilling by taking the lid off of the bottle, placing
plastic wrap over the opening of the lid & placing the lid back on the bottle.

3. Fingers crossed this doesn't happen, but I always have an extra set of
clothes in my carry-on bag just incase my checked luggage goes missing.

4. Pick your favorite clothing pieces & build outfits around those pieces.

5. Take pics of your outfits so you know exactly what goes with what!

3-Year Anniversary | July 9, 2015

Last Thursday was our 3-year anniversary so we went to the city to explore the Upper East Side. Our first stop was the Cooper Hewitt museum on 91st Street. My favorite exhibition was the one on architecture and design. We ended the night in Herald Square eating Insomnia Cookies and got on the train home just before the rain storm. John also made me this storybook of how we met. It's the most thoughtful gift I've ever received.

Florals on Florals

It's rare to see me in floral print so Old Westbury Gardens was the perfect place to wear this print. My favorite spot was the Rose Garden with the canopy walkway. I can't wait to go back for a picnic day. My top is a bandeau from the Kendall and Kylie collection at PacSun and my skirt is from Marshalls.

First Semester Dos & Dont's

I have exactly 2 more weeks of winter break before I head back to college life (I'm so excited to go back!) so here's some lessons that I learned in my fall semester & what I want to improve for spring semester. My main reason for writing this post is to motivate myself to work even harder this semester, but I hope these tips are helpful for others as well!

Shopping in SoHo

A great day of food & shopping with my boyfriend & his cousins in SoHo. We couldn't have gone to the city at a better time. The rest of the week we're having crazy weather; from cold rain, to humid rain, then possibly snow!
