Fashion lover, coffee addict & chocoholic
A lot has changed over the past year. I graduated from Penn State, I took a permalance (permanent-freelance) position with Marie Claire magazine, I then freelanced for M Missoni and I just finished helping a brand called Falcon & Bloom during Coterie. All in all, it has been quite a busy year for me so far. The end of Coterie means the beginning of job-hunting and trust me, it’s so much harder than I could have ever imagined. Unfortunately, jobs in the fashion industry are so few and rare. I would absolutely love to get back into editorial but I also wouldn’t mind giving PR a try, after all, I would be doing the other end of what I did at Marie Claire. Since I have so much more free time on my hands, I could turn my attention back to my very neglected Tumblr. It’s late so I won’t post any new content right now. However, I leave you with a picture of a box of macarons I recently received as a gift! I LOVE the bright colors :)

With all the fashion week (or month) madness going on, it’s difficult to pick one designer as my favorite but I must say, Alexander Wang is up there for me. If my pajamas looked anything like that, then I would be strutting around in them all day long. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Victoria’s Secret beauty Behati Prinsloo is the one strutting in them down the runway. As for the cropped pants and tank top, can you say ‘perfection’? It’s safe to put those pants in my “must-have” list for the spring!

Here are some pictures from my recent excursion into the city with my family. After months of hearing about the famed chocolate chip walnut cookies from Levain bakery on the Upper West Side, I was finally able to get my hands on one and I can assure you, the trip is worth it.
