MERMAID STATE OF MIND


If you know anything about me, you know that I am a mermaid at heart. I talk a lot about going to the beach, what I have in my beach bag, what my favorite products are for summer and I show you amazing summer photos of the sun, sand and marinas.

It just only seems right that I would have a few mermaid things in my arsenal, right? Well, yes you're right. I normally just spend a lot of time looking at pictures of mermaids online and liking a bunch of Little Mermaid themed posts on Instagram and obsessing over them. Now though, thanks to my friend Diana's amazing birthday gift giving skills and one trip to a bookstore, I have an even bigger collection of mermaid things that I thought I would share with you today.

Of course, I took it to my favorite place, the beach, for a cute little photoshoot with all of my beautiful mermaid things. I took these photos a week after a huge noreaster shot through the area, but aside from some of the photos that are more inland, you would never instantly realize it if you didn't know any better. The beach looks beautiful regardless.

EXPLORE MORE


There's always been so many things that I've been yearning to do in New York. I mean, there are so many things to do in general, but certain things just feel like they would mean more to me. A couple of these adventures have come up recently, others I have been seeking out for years.

Because of external circumstances, which I guess can be buttressed by internal circumstances, I haven't gotten to any of these things yet. That's all going to change this year. I promise myself that by the end of this year I want to have done all of the things on this list and hold no one accountable but myself for it.

WINTER WHITE


I love a good winter white. Of course by winter white I mean anything that has to do with wearing white in the winter. This year though, we've had at least two or three little mini snowstorms that have really brought out the winter white in New York City. As I said in my last post about Christmas, I always feel so much more thankful when I'm in the city because I don't have to worry about the woes that are NJ Transit, driving around, cleaning off my car, and shoveling off the steps around my house.

Snow without the worry is always so much more fun and enjoyable. I feel like I have spent a majority of my life defending myself and making the case as to why I HATE the snow. This year, it has been amazingly more enjoyable for the reasons above. There's a lot more to appreciate about snow and lazy weekends when you can just sit back and watch it fall without a worry. Then if you decide that you need something from the grocery store, you just walk outside of your apartment and get it. No tackling people for parking spots and yelling at raging drivers for driving too slow in icy roads.

The best part of all? How beautiful it actually is when you catch it looking just that good. Here are a few quick snaps I took a couple of weeks ago when I was out and about with some friends.

CHRISTMAS IN JANUARY


2016 has been one of the most interesting years of my entire life. It has nothing to do with politics, current events, or public figures. The year has tested and tried me more than I care to even mention and I don't know for sure if I'm up to sharing it here. For the time being, what I did want to share, is were some Christmas pictures.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen SOME of these. While that's true, there are a few sprinkled in that haven't made it to the internet until now. That's hard for me, because normally I'm snapping pictures of absolutely everything and uploading almost immediately. Let's get started!

NATURE REPUBLIC HAUL | SKIN CARE



I've always been so interested in K Beauty and there really has never been an easy way to try it here in New Jersey. Ever since I started working in New York, I have had endless opportunities to walk right through Koreatown on 32nd Street so that I could pick up absolutely anything I want and trust me, I have taken advantage of that.
