Restaurant Guide: Astoria

Once upon a time, some ol’ chap named George Bernard Shaw said “There is no sincerer love than the love of food.” Mr. Shaw knows what’s up. As much as I loved Astoria for the safe, friendly people, the waterfront park, and my neighborhood dog-friends, I love-loved Astoria for the endless, delicious food options that […]

Going to Cross-fit + I’m Gunna Get Married ~

This morning, my boyfriend told me that my dress looked like a fancy robe, and about halfway through the day I looked in the mirror long enough to realize that I wore two completely different earrings. Apparently having Monday off doesn’t do too much in regards to helping me begin the week on the right […]

City Minutes

After working in the city for only three days so far, I am remembering all of the little lessons that NYC taught me about a year ago. 1. Every minute counts. And by every minute, I really do mean every one (I can even say every second, but every minute sounded the slightest bit less […]

One Heel in the Door

I tried about five different times to start writing this blog and couldn’t find the right words to express how I’m feeling, so here’s a brief list: excited, nervous, proud, thrilled, anxious, overwhelmed, grown-up… Guys… I got a job! A real life, big girl job in my favorite city. Just a few minutes ago, I […]

Blog a Little, Love a Lot

Well…….. I haven’t blogged in forever, considering the fact that my life became markedly less exciting since leaving New York City. It’s a sad truth, but a truth nonetheless. The semester I spent there truly gave me time to spread my wings; I became a new person, went on new adventures, and explored a whole […]

Rocky Point VS New York City

I really don’t think I could put into words how amazing of an experience I was given during my semester in NYC. I had such a fun internship, met the most wonderful people, and learned so much about life and myself. Now, I’m sitting in my living room at home for the last night before […]

Holiday Love List

Five things I love about the holidays: 1. Shopping so much and pretending I’m Santa 2. The endless amount of hugging 3. Opening presents 4. Seeing my cousins for three days in a row 5. Singing along to Christmas songs I’m snuggled in the living room with my Santa’s Secret tea wearing the comfiest pair of […]

My Week in Review / A Revisit to the Bucket List

I created my month long bucket list over a month ago, so it’s safe to say that I’m not too great at bucket lists, but let’s review: 1. Get tickets at the TKTS booth for a Broadway show. Okay, not completed yet, but Tyler and I are going over break for Christmas gifts, so I’m […]

Friends at their Finest

For the past two weeks or so I have been dying to write about my upcoming trip to Stonehill, but to keep the visit a surprise, I had to seal my lips. I decided to set up an interview for a possible part time internship at Lombardo’s, a beautiful, family owned venue for corporate and social events (www.lombardos.com). […]

Farewell For Now, Kleinfeld

It’s actually really crazy how fast this internship flew by. I remember getting ready on my first day, putting on the outfit I chose the night before and overanalyzing every bit of it. I began my commute in flats but changed into heels before I even got off of the subway in case one of […]
