TAKING FLIGHT IN FLORAL | STYLE


So if you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you'll know that I am so beyond obsessed with flowers. Pretty much any variety of flower in any color, any shape, any size. I just find such a relaxing beauty and inspiration within them, that it always makes me feel happy and calm. I am always snapping pictures of impressive flowers that I am lucky enough to pass by daily while walking to my office. If you don't know, on 28th street in Manhattan there's something magical called the Flower District. This is where a bunch of wholesale (and retail) locations sell the absolute most beautiful flowers I have ever seen

I have always dreamed of an opportunity to walk down this block DAILY, ON MY WAY TO WORK. Even if you have the most stressful day in the world, you know you started it looking at color and life. Also, you know that you'll see it again the next day. It's always reassuring to know that you have something so beautiful and positive to look at.

I've been trying to figure out a way to show how the colors of these flowers influence my life through my outfits. Let me try and take you on a journey to through the Flower District of Manhattan.

POPSUGAR READING CHALLENGE | 2016


It's hard to think of many things I love more than the beach, but if there was absolutely anything that came close, it would be reading. I have to admit though, I have learned throughout the process of the Popsugar Reading Challenge in 2016 (that is only almost 4 months done), that I can be quite the reading snob.

I never thought that I would say I'm a particular reader, but I have learned that about myself throughout the past couple of months. A coworker of mine asked me what kind of things I like to read in December/January and I told her that I normally prefer political/historical books, but I would read anything. At this point though, I realize that I wont just read absolutely anything. >>

NEON AMERICA



I always like to start my Sundays watching a Mr.Kate video. If you don't know who she is, I don't know what you're doing with your life. She's unapologetically herself and I can so beyond appreciate that. I also love that sometimes she makes things that I don't love, but she has taught me to appreciate why and be able to explain it. She is a huge inspiration to me and today she put out a video with David Bromstad about decorating around a self-made art piece. 

I decided to somewhat take on the challenge of creating something somewhat zany, but creative myself. You know, Sunday fun day. Anyway! I have been calling this "Neon America" all day long. I just love the idea of being able to relax on a Sunday and make something. Not to mention that I was able to sit outside on my front porch, listen to music and just leisurely so whatever the hell I wanted.

So! With all of that said, check out the process through gifs and photos. Enjoy!

COMING UP ROSES | FLATIRON IN FLORAL



If I could swim in flowers I would. If my life consisted of picking, growing and watering flowers all day long and arranging them, I would be the happiest person in the entire world. If I could make and wear flower crowns all day long, my heart would just combust with joy. Now that we've established that right now it's just impossible to have any of those tasks as my job, I'll have to just settle for taking a walk through the Flower District on my way to actual work. Notice I said for now.

RECENT FAVORITES | LIFESTYLE


Recently there has been a few things that have been getting me through the winter and I felt like I needed to share them. The weather has been insane lately. It goes from 40 degrees to full blown snowstorm, and then this weekend it was 55+ degrees on both days. You really never know what jacket or shoes to wear so you really always have to be on guard and on the weather app if you know what I mean. Here are a couple of things that have been rejuvenating me lately.
