Along The East River

Posted on Thursday, July 21, 2016

Hello!
As my summer in Brooklyn is coming to an end I have been trying to squeeze in some last minute adventures. The other day my friend Shannon and I went to Williamsburg. Even though it is only a few stops away from me on the L train, I had never been... It was so cute! Everywhere you looked there was either an artisanal coffee shop or a little boutique. We stopped for a quick bite at Cafe Colette. I recommend going while you tour around Williamsburg, it is a perfect spot for people watching. After lunch we strolled down to the waterfront and did a little rock climbing (kinda). What I would not recommend: climbing in platforms... However going out on to the rocks was totally worth a few scrapes and bruises. Our day was filled with my favorite things: coffee and sunshine. If you are ever in New York definitely plan a day in Williamsburg and skip the excursion to Times Square. 

Cheers!

ISOLDA RESORT '17

Posted on Thursday, July 7, 2016

Hello!
The other week Isolda Brazil showcased their Resort 2017 collection on the rooftop of Hotel Hugo hosted by CREO Consulting. When entering the rooftop vibrant fruits and lush palm leaves transported me out of the concrete jungle and into a summery paradise. To enhance the dreamy experience, Brazilian singer Alexia Bontempo preformed throughout the evening. The seven models gracefully danced and posed in the gorgeous Isolda pieces. The collection was heavily inspired by Brazilian culture. All of the prints from the collection were created in watercolor first and then transformed into stunning fabrics. The presentation and collection was unbelievable! I am beyond thrilled to have been part of the evening. Enjoy the beautiful collection! 

Cheers!

A Sleepless Summer

Posted on Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Hello Hello! 
The other day Shannon and I grabbed brunch at Cafe Clover. We enjoyed our eggs dining al fresco (my fave). The whole vibe of the restaurant was very clean and chic. Cafe Clover will definitely be added to my "faves list" for brunch spots in NYC. After brunch we stubbled upon a blue garage door that basically screamed "photo op!" My outfit was inspired by the city in the summer. This look can go from day to night and is extremely comfortable. Working the 10-6pm days really taught me to dress for the day, not just pre-dinner. I chose to wear my sneakers because they are honestly the best shoe. Summertime in NYC has been so fun with my overloaded schedule and infinite options. I can't wait to continue the adventure! There is so much more to come, just wait ;) 

Cheers,

An Exhilarated Start

Posted on Sunday, June 5, 2016

Hello!
As my first year at school ended and summer began, my life seemed to be on fast forward. This post will provide a little update of what you missed in May. I moved to Brooklyn for the summer (yay for adulting)! I've continued working as Jonathan Simkhai's PR intern! My experience at JS has been so amazing; I've learned so much! Additionally, I am working for CREO Consulting. Working at CREO has been wonderful. Just get ready for the future posts to come! New York is one of the most amazing cities in the world and I am so lucky to be here! My friends and I stumbled upon the Conservatory Garden in Central Park. It is such a gem (highly recommend going)! There were beautiful flowers and plants surrounding the entire garden which created an enchanting experience. My outfit was inspired by Gucci '16 no surprise. I can't even express my love for the Fall and Spring shows this year... Alessandro Michele is killing it. Also please admire my cute nano bag. Welcome to summer!

Cheers!

CATCHing Spring

Posted on Friday, April 22, 2016

Hello! 
They say "adapt or be left behind". Since moving to NYC one thing that I have had to change is my footwear... Sneakers have become my best friends. I've started to accept my true height and save the blisters/ foot cramps for another day. Recently I bought a pair of Adidas sneakers (featured below) and opted not to get the oh so trendy "superstars". From running around to my internship downtown or from class to class they are perfect. New York couldn't be more pleasant than right now. Everyone is out enjoying the weather and the sunshine. Before the shoot Jamie and I went to CATCH NYC's rooftop for lunch. We both had the avocado toast and let me tell you it was the best avocado toast I've ever had! The rooftop itself was very cute and had a great view of the Meatpacking District. After lunch we walked over to the Highline as you do when in the Meatpacking District. I wanted to showcase spring in New York for this shoot. I styled both Jamie and myself with neutral colors that agreed with the Highline backdrop. We strolled down the entire park while stopping every so often to take a few shots.

Cheers,

NoMo in SoHo

Posted on Tuesday, April 12, 2016

Hello! 
The other day I went to The NoMo Hotel for brunch with my friend Julia. The NoMo is such a cool spot in Soho; I highly recommend it. Right as you walk in you immediately feel the chic and modern vibe of the hotel. We both had the egg white frittata, which was so good! Warm weather is almost here... I have been living in my Members Only jacket for the past few weeks. It is the perfect mini windbreaker/ bomber jacket to throw on over anything. I wear it during the day and night. Even though bomber jackets have become oh so trendy I'm not taking my Members Only off. It is a staple piece in my wardrobe. Anyways, if you need a light jacket get a something similar because you will wear it all the time. Sending sunshine to all! 

Cheers,
