Happy Monday! I’m starting the week with a “what’s in my bag” post. I love seeing what other people have in their bags, so I thought I’d do a work edition one. I use the Tory Burch Perry Tote for work (raved about in my work tote comparison and review post last week). It seriously is a great work tote, because it holds all my work essentials without me filling the whole thing up. So what do I bring to work? Everything in this picture and when I bring lunch to the office, my lunch will also go in my… View Post

I moved to a studio in Chelsea, Manhattan in mid-July and wanted to show what my room looks like before I start decorating for the holidays! For reference, my place is approximately 400 square feet (yes, rent in New York City is insanely high). Let’s begin! Welcome : ) This is my door and my handy dandy swiffer, which I use biweekly. On the left is my tiny kitchen and on the right is my tiny bathroom. We will start with the less interesting parts first. My bathroom really is tiny, but at least my shower curtains are cute! There… View Post

Sometimes I just want to stay home on the weekends and relax, but I don’t want to be Netflixing or YouTubing for the entire day. What to do what to do… Bake something!

I made some mini apple pies last weekend and thought I’d share them today so you could possibly have a relaxing weekend evening – apple pie & chill. The recipe I used is from Laura in the Kitchen (I love watching her YouTube videos), but I used… View Post

I wanted to write about sample sales in NYC because I didn’t know what to expect when I went to my first one over a year ago. Hopefully this blog post will give you an idea of what sample sales in NYC are like! First off, sample sales in New York City are not as hectic as how it looks in this photo. Sample sales also happen way more often than you think. Sometimes I feel like the name is a bit misleading, because you’d think that a sample sale is a sale where they sell their sample items for… View Post

I am a huge fan of tote bags because I can be hands-free on my way to work and they are perfect for carrying all my work essentials. I will be comparing my four favorite tote bags in this post, starting from newest to oldest. I heard about the Tory Burch Perry Tote from Amie’s blog and YouTube channel. She has a light blue one and raves about this bag all the time, so I had to get it when I saw this French Grey color, which retails for $395. I had been wanting a new work tote since I… View Post
