Winner Winner, Lumineers and Dinner

Hi, hello there. This post is yet another short and sweet one–much like my attention span while Masterpiece Classic is on (yes, I acknowledge that I am 22 going on 80, but this is real this is me).

Too Hot To Trot

Hi, hello there. If I close my eyes and imagine hell, it would be the 6 train in New York City without AC. Have you ever been on a subway car in the underbelly of Manhattan with no AC, surrounded by sweating passengers and even more people who probably haven’t taken a shower since Bush (Senior) was President?

Puerto Rican Seas and New York Minutes

Hi hello how are ya? So, obviously it’s been an extremely long time. My only excuse this time around is that I’ve been doing a bit of traveling recently. Two weeks ago my friends and I ventured to San Juan, Puerto Rico for spring break.

Despite some struggles with the hotel and their staff (el oh el that’s a saga for a different time), the overall trip was amazing, and Puerto Rico is beautiful.

After that excursion, and some classes in between (I haven’t graduated yet after all,) my roommate and I decided to take a trip to NYC. Obviously we felt a Central Park photoshoot was in order. So, please enjoy her craziness as much as I enjoyed capturing it, and some glimpses of the city in between.

Styled by: yours truly.

I <3 NYC

Hey what’s up, how’s it going? I’m all packed up and by all accounts ready to leave the city to return to my hometown. There’s something so bittersweet about leaving this city. I know I’ll be back (if I get a job… because lezzzzbihonest, I deff plan to move here post-graduation), but the next 10 months constitute the conclusion of my undergrad career. I know what you’re thinking: woah, this chick doesn’t look a day over 17! (apparently, I don’t look 17 as I got carded when I went to see Trainwreck a few weeks ago. I know, riddle me shocked. I thought the kid was joking. SMH.) Any who, I hate to say goodbye to the city lights, but am looking forward to spending some time on the beach and by my pool before heading back to the tundra (aka Boston).

I’ve decided to compile a list of my top 5 moments this summer, you know, in case you were wondering… clearly my life is uber important and must be documented for the masses.

5. Shmorgesburg

No words necessary. Only thing: NOM.

4. 4th of July

The past two years my friends and I go to our older sister’s rooftop for the 4th. Her building looks out over the Statue of Liberty, and what could be more patriotic than watching the fireworks explode over our great symbol of freedom?

3. Brooklyn ArtWalls/Coney Island

I love art. I love Brooklyn. I love walls.

2. That View

Tell me that is not breathtaking?!

1. Work

I know what you’re thinking: how could anyone love work? Like lol. I complain all the time about lack of sleep, but this year’s summer internship really solidified my love for the magazine industry. I’ll miss the goons I laughed with everyday (and tbh got in trouble for doing so el oh el) and the feeling I got after seeing the pages I assisted on (using that term loosely) make it to print. I’ll miss the amazing people I interned for, as well as the building. Because that building is amaze.

Anywho, gotta rush to our gate as it’s time to jet back to the sunshine state. Lookout for a new post within the next few days!

Stay classy and cool beautiful people!

The Heart of Art

Hey, hi there, how’s it going?

I’d apologize for my lack of posts but if you read my last post, you’d know I’m working on apologizing too much. Any who, apart from the busy-ness that constitutes the #internlife at a fashion mag, my wifi is out in my apartment along with part of the ceiling in my bathroom. Therefore, I’m coming to you live (and clean) from a friend’s amazing place (way to be clutch Hannah!).

Honestly, I love NYC but when it comes time to rent a place of my own and move to the big bad beautiful beat of the city, I think I’ll pick something slightly less… well maybe something more (like central AC, or a full roof and a stable wifi connection).

Amenities aside, this summer has been another one for the books. I can’t believe that I head back home to Florida in two weeks, then back to Boston for my senior year. I know I’ve mentioned that quite a few times, but…like… I’m trying to wrap my mind around it, okay? This is real, this is me. Time literally flies by as I hop from place to place, bar to bar. Every weekend I anticipate the next, only to realize that another month has gone by. But, that’s just the tick of time, I guess. I digress. Yes, that rhymed.

A friend recently got me in to the Whitney (thanks NYU for your extra +1’s, can I get a free what whatttttt) and got to see all of the amazing artwork in the established museum.

The Whitney also solidified the disturbing aspect of some art pieces. Let’s just say that I typically prefer Monet and Renoir, and try to stray from any screaming sculptures. That being said, I’ll always appreciate  art.

What’s coming up you ask? My last 2 weeks interning for one of the best companies, and best magazines in the world. I am still pinching myself, 2 and a half months later. Someone recently asked me where I plan on interning next summer, to which I stated my senior status, and realized/prayed/did a little dance to the job gods, in the hopes that I am a part of the employed community.

But until then, vive la New York.

Stay posted for the next… well, post!

Stay beautiful and cool you amazing people!

XOXO
