The Weekender: Happy 2016!

Happy first week of 2016 lovelies! Hope it’s been a great start to the year! I’m back in full swing with my ‘Weekender’ series and so excited to start tackling things to do in the city again after a brief hiatus over the holidays spent in Texas and Colorado! Though I did have a major case of wanderlust strike this week and fairly major life change (more to come soon!) so I’ve booked a trip to ...

January Fit Series: Dance Machine

Little known fact about me … I love to dance. I mean any kind of dancing. I’m not great but I could care less. Maybe it is all of those years as a cheerleader back home in Texas but I enjoy going to a class, attempting to learn a routine (though inevitably looking like a moron in the back of the class with zero cares in the world) and busting out some moves. This is ...

The II Apartment Overhaul

Having lived in my adorable apartment in the West Village for almost three years my humble abode was in need of a little makeover. Earlier this year I gave my bedroom a small refresh but this particular update was to the living room, a space that I spend most of my time in and the one area where I am able to entertain in be it ever so small.  With such a small space to ...

Red + Black

Keeping things simple but taking it up a notch by adding a slight punch of color to my New York wardrobe with what is possibly my favorite skirt this season, this Ronny Kobo skater skirt. Paired with my $88 vegan leather jacket from Nasty Gal, these cut out boots from Tibi, vintage Chanel sunnies and my Celine bag I wore this for a coffee date at Joe’s with Alyssa, to the office, to happy hour ...

New York Nights

I have expanded my network of friends, colleagues and acquaintances significantly as I've established my life in New York. With this ever growing network has come opportunities and invitations to countless events and happenings that I couldn't have imagined going to. One of my favorite evenings to date in New York was going to a special event at the New York Public Library. The evening was to unveil a special project that I will be sharing ...

T.G.I.F.F.

Happy Friday friends! As much as I enjoy New York in the fall it seems that I’m a bit of a roadtripper these days. I’m off yet again for another weekend getaway out of the city! This time I’m heading up to Vermont for a weekend at an adorable b&b, drives full of fall foliage, a bit of antique shopping for the newish apartment and some much needed R&R.   It’ll be my first time there ...

t.g.i.f.f.

Seemingly in the snap of a finger we are into full fall mode here in New York. Layers, sweaters, boots, chunky scarves and for some, though not I, pumpkin spice lattes … all day every day. Lovely fall weekends doing “fall” things are the things dreams are made of, especially for a Texas girl where the weather in October teeters around 90 until Halloween. I don’t feel that I’ve living a proper NE lifestyle until ...
