Now that Halloween is over, IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! Yeap, singing the song as I’m writing this. This also means that Sephora’s holiday gift sets are out! I like to start early, because there are more options available and I have more time to think about what I want to get for who. I picked out some of my favorites from this year’s holiday section, including three gift sets and two stocking stuffers (in no particular order). Too Faced Grande Hotel Café ($49) – this gift set is worth $292! You are not only paying less than… View Post

Happy November! The first day of the month is the day I pay my (New York) rent. Yes, rent in New York City is insanely high. Before I started work, I did some googling about how to budget for a young adult. It was helpful, but I didn’t start learning until I got my first paycheck. When I saw the amount deposited into my account, I wanted to cry. New York City tax is INSANELY high! I thought to myself how am I going to live like this? The first month after I got my first paycheck, I was a… View Post

Ahh, fall fashion. It’s the time for all things cozy. Here are some outfits featuring my favorite fall fashion items! I love faux fur and anything soft. I like to pair my fur vests (got another gray one with a hood from Zara) with black skinny jeans or leggings and a solid-color sweater. It keeps the color palette neutral and simple, plus you can rock a burgundy bag. I got this fur vest at the Nordstrom Rack at Union Square and it is by Joie. I rocked my chokers all summer and this sweater is a lovely twist to the… View Post

I was recently in Chicago for work, but was able to check out some touristy spots in the city. The Bean – aka Cloud Gate, aka the most famous thing in Chicago. It is a giant sculpture made of stainless steel plates and located in Millennium Park. If you’re at the Millennium Park, go check out the Buckingham Fountain too, it is magical. I stayed at the Bean for about half an hour to take pictures from all angles (it showcases the skyline very well) and to relax in the park. You also get a great view of the Bean from… View Post

It’s the season of pumpkin everything! Coming at you with my favorite breakfast this season: Trader Joe’s pumpkin waffles topped with Trader Joe’s pumpkin butter, sliced bananas, and blackberries. Oh and of course, pumpkin spice latter (made it with my Keurig). I’ve been so obsessed with these pumpkin waffles that I’m munching on my fourth box now and will probably go buy another box today yumm. Another favorite of mine is the Boom Chicka Pop Holidrizzle Pumpkin Spice Kettle Corn. It is hands down my favorite pumpkin spice snack this season, because the pumpkin spice flavor is not overpowering and… View Post
