Mosaic

Sunday, March 18, 2018





My 25th birthday was the perfect time to reflect on this past year. I have been reading this book called Joy in Every Moment and I read a passage that really stuck with me. "Mosaics are beautiful pieces of artwork made from shattered bits of glass and broken tile.” This really resonated with me because 24 was all about growth, and finding who I really am and where I want to be in life. It took getting broken to now become who I am today which I see as a beautiful journey. 

Now on to the fun part my birthday celebration! It was honestly one of my best birthday’s I can remember and everything went so smoothly. After a lot of research on the best bottomless brunch spots in NYC I came across Maya and it was incredible!! For $50 it was unlimited drinks, and they sample you the entire menu and whatever you like they bring out more of. Yes I said the ENTIRE menu! I have never been to a restaurant that does this, and endless Mexican food is exactly how I wanted to spend my birthday with mimosas flowing all afternoon.

I stayed in the city at The Standard High Line and I have to say it is now my favorite hotel chain. For the winter they have an ice rink out front, which is a ton of fun after you have some drinks in you! They also have a Biergartden with fun games, and the most amazing hot pretzels. No joke I ate 4 that night, but hey it was my birthday!

Birthdays are always an excuse to shop and I got my full outfit online from Lulu’s. I’m not really a girl that loves jeans, and I knew I wanted a comfortable pair of pants for this all day celebration and I’m now obsessed with these nude wide leg cropped pants. They are great because I can wear them all year long. I did an outfit change after brunch, and put on an off the shoulder bodysuit to get a bit more dressy for the night.

Looking forward to see where this new journey takes me at 25! It's just the beginning! xo

Forever Finds

Saturday, January 20, 2018




 They sold out of this top in black & white, but this is the same style in green & navy


 











For this year instead of writing resolutions because I feel like that can be a little cliche and add pressure, I decided to write down my vision/goals for 2018. On that list is to prioritize my blog and do at least one small thing a day that I enjoy, which for me includes blogging. A reason I have been a little MIA on my blog is because my Mac of 7 years decided to crash on me, and I was putting off buying a new laptop. This past weekend I decided to pull the trigger and bought a new Mac Air and I LOVE it! It's important to treat yourself every once in a while. 

I have been really excited to share this outfit because it was such a great find at an even better price. My top & denim skirt are from Forever 21. The top was $10 and the denim skirt was $27. I’m really into bell sleeves, and I find myself always buying them. I love that denim skirts made such a big comeback & weren’t just a fad. I particularly liked this one because of the patch and stud detail.

My accessories are all from Dose of Zen I’m so proud my sister and her best friend for launching their website and being so passionate to follow their dreams while still in college. 

I hope everyone is having a good start to the new year and if it's not exactly what you envisioned, try not to be so hard on yourself. There is a new day in the horizon full of new opportunities waiting for you to take the first step to get there. Sending good vibes to each and every one of you that take the time to check out my page. xo

Labor Day weekend I took a trip to the sunflower field that I visited last year. It was even better this year because all the flowers were in full bloom. There also were teddy bear sunflowers, which are a brown to orange ombre that I have never even heard of. If you follow along on my Instagram you see me post often about @dozbrand and the faces behind it are my sister and her best friend, who is really like my second sister. They have an incredible jewelry brand called Dose of Zen that they are passionate about. They import their pieces from around the world including Australia, Bali, Hawaii, Turkey and I'm sure the list will expand as they continue to explore around the globe. They also customize pieces that they make by hand. I'm so excited to watch them grow and expand their brand! Be sure to check out their Instagram page because they are constantly posting their newest arrivals.

On a personal note, I have some exciting news that I would like to share. Last week I accepted a job at FACEBOOK!! I could not be more excited for this new chapter in my life. Always reach for the stars because no dream is too big. If you work hard enough it will become a reality. I hope everyone has a fabulous week! XO

Pure Bliss

Saturday, August 19, 2017











Since I was a baby my family takes a trip to Long Beach Island every summer. All year I look forward to this vacation because it really is my favorite week of the entire year. The second I get on the island I instantly feel pure bliss and relaxation. There is nothing better then ending a perfect beach day with riding my bike to the bay to watch the beautiful sunset.

This year we woke up early one morning and rented a boat to fish on the bay. The previous night we bought a big duck float that was quite the adventure to get blown up and tied to the roof of my truck. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen this unfold on my Instagram story lol. We also went paddle boarding for my first time, and surprisingly I didn't fall off the board! Of course the day that we decide to go there is a strong current. As soon as I got up on my board I started going with the current and immediately got yelled out. Oops!

Now onto my outfit :) This top I got from Francesca's in the Palisades mall. You can't walk into a store this summer without seeing a rack of cold shoulder tops, but I love this particular top because of the floral embroidery and cut out detail. It's also great because I can transition it and wear it into the fall. It may sound shocking, but this is my first purchase of white jeans like ever! I have been wanting this style jean with the frayed bottom, and when I finally found them I knew it was a sign that I had to buy them!

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer and creating amazing memories! Thank you so much for taking the time to follow along, it means so much to me! XO

Zennor Bikini

Taking it back to Oahu today, since that's currently where I rather be. This past week in New Jersey the weather has been so strange, and the sun hasn't been coming out. I'm so envious of my best friend that actually gets to live there all year long. Most people see Hawaii as a vacation destination, but there is actually a whole population that has the privilege to call that beautiful island home!

Before I left for Hawaii I discovered the brand Zennor Bikini through Instagram, and I instantly fell in love with all the prints and styles that they offer. Their halter tops are reversible and can be tied in different ways so you never get bored! I like wearing it racer back because I find that way to be most comfortable when I'm being active on the beach. They are based in the UK so to avoid exchanges, I suggest going a size bigger then you typically buy for their bottoms because they are pretty tiny. I love every aspect of the summer and being able to live in minimal clothing is another plus for me.

I have so many pictures from Hawaii it's overwhelming trying to choose which ones to share! But I guess it's a good problem to have after a beautiful trip. You will always catch me with a camera in hand documenting as much as possible. I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. My goal is to focus on living more in the moment and fully enjoying myself. For the summer it's particularly important for people that live on the East Coast to get out and enjoy it, because we only get this warm weather a few months out of the year! Thanks so much for following and have a great week!!

Jumpsuit & Studs

Wednesday, July 12, 2017





 


I recently went to my first wedding in years! I was having a hard time deciding what I should wear because I didn’t want to buy a dress that I would only wear once. It always makes more sense to buy pieces that I will actually get use of. When I came across this cropped black jumpsuit from Madewell I knew right away that it would be perfect. Nothing is better then being comfortable when you know your going to be in your outfit all day long. It’s a classic piece to own because you can easily dress it up or down depending on the occasion. My heels are from DSW and I’m not lying when I say they are the most comfortable pair of heels that I have ever worn. They are BCBG and I have yet to find another pair of heels that I can be in all day dancing and my feet still not hurt me.

Thanks for following and I hope your having an amazing week!
