EATALY & ME | CHARCUTERIE, WINE


If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that one of my most frequented places in the city is Flatiron. Mostly because that's where my office is, but also because I do love it! Most of our lunch outings are here, a lot of the cute little shops we love are here and just generally, I love this area.

There are some decent spots to eat around here, but the most touristy spot in what seems like ALL of NYC (food wise) is Eataly and it is located right here in Flatiron. I couldn't be happier about this because to be honest, I love it so much and for so many reasons.

BOOGIE BOOTS ON | COUNTRY I LOVE


So if you know me at all (when am I going to stop beginning my blog posts like this?), you’ll know that I have an undying obsession with country music. To be honest, compared to most country fans, it is a fairly new obsession. I haven’t always been as into the genre as I am now, but I can’t imagine not having country music in my life.

As sick and as corny as this all sounds, it’s incredibly true for so many reasons. Something to know about me is that I am really not an emotional person. For some reason, country music has been one of those things that has gotten me to be a little more emotional. If you listen to the words of these songs, you will quickly realize that they are so incredibly filled with meaning and not just sung for shits and gigs. Yes, some of the music can be pretty sappy, corny and over the top, but what genre/song isn’t sometimes, right?

There’s just something about the hometown, chilled out feel of pretty melodies that make you feel at ease. Driving around town with windows down and country albums blasting is a feeling you can’t quite explain. I feel like I’m in somewhat of a minority of loving country music when I’m in the city, as there aren’t really man fans, but for some reason it makes me feel that much better about it.

That being said! I wanted to share some of my recent favorite songs/albums/artists with you. As explained, I’ve become a huge, extremely dedicated fan of country only about five years or so ago, but that doesn’t really mean anything when it comes to country. I still love it the same.

SUBSCRIPTIONS & SERVICES | WORTH IT?



I’ve really never been much of a subscription/online services type of girl. I definitely get a total sense that it’s a city thing. I always think of things like Blue Apron and Birchbox as total city services that only people who live there use, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. I honestly can’t even tell you why I had this premonition.

Now I don’t know the analytics, demographics wise, of these companies and where they are most popular, but I just know that cities could only be the more popular area. While that might be true, don’t get it twisted, ‘burbs and beach girls use the services too.

Today, I wanted to talk about some of the services I’ve used in the past. I wanted to detail why I love them, what’s best about them, and some of them that just didn’t make the cut for me. Just incase you’re nervous about giving them a shot, come along on the journey of this blog post with me and let’s talk about it!

SHORE BETS | SUMMER 2017


It can be so easy to get caught up in all of the things there is to do at the Jersey Shore over the summer. I like to think there are so many options that some people feel overwhelmed and just don’t come so that there’s more room for us locals (lol). While that’s a little farfetched of a hope, I still like to make sure that I am making the most out of mine and my friends time, by visiting some of our favorite local spots that always provide us with a good time, no matter what.

I know it might be a sin to put them out there, but I wanted to share. Also, let it be known that some of these places are probably known by most locals. Honestly, if you don’t know them and you’re a local, I’d be shocked. I also have a lot of reservations about putting my beach out there in the open because, you know, it’s my beach and I don’t want anyone else there (also lol). It’s all about sharing the good though, right?

OBSESSION SESSION | RECENT FAVORITES


Life is never easy. I feel like I don't really need to explain myself. With all of the challenges that we face on a daily basis, it's always good to have something to fall back on that make us happy. I can't be the only one thinking this. Recently, life seems extra brutal and to counteract that, I figured I would share with you some of the things that have been making me pretty happy lately.

I realized I loved curating and writing this post. While it may seem simple and easy to say, I just loved gathering some of the things that have made me happy the past couple of weeks and sharing them with you. This has also gotten me to realize that some of these things change on a weekly basis and some of them stay the same. That being said, maybe I'll make it a weekly post? Ugh, god, I know I haven't posted since April. Consider this my apology, like I said, life is rough. (That's no excuse, B).
