Radley London Bag Giveaway!

It’s finally spring in New York City! When I saw the little buds of the cherry blossom trees in central park last week, I knew I had to take the opportunity to photograph them in full bloom!

It’s a beautiful sight to see, in some ways NYC comes into bloom also in the Spring.
You see more people out and about- walking their dogs, strolling the parks with their babies, and pic-nicking when the sun is out. There’s something in the air in these weeks that NYC turns from being a cold, windy ice box to finally a warm, colorful, sunny city.

When I went to central park it was nice to walk around in just a denim skirt, top and my new favorite bag (no more poofy jackets and mittens here!).  And as you can tell from the title of this post- I am hosting a giveaway! I’ve teamed up with Radley Londonhttp://www.radleylondon.com/ to give away to one special person this Richmond Park Shoulder bag in Lolly Pink. Ever since I received this bag, I haven’t stopped wearing it. It seriously so convenient and transitions perfectly from night-to-day. The rose gold metal hardware also adds a touch of lux and the signature “Scottie" dog logo adds a touch of whimsy.

If you want to win this bag it is simple to enter!
All you have to do is:
1.Follow my Instagram 
2. like and comment that you have entered
3.Follow Radley London

And that’s it!
The winner will be chosen May 1st on via Instagram and it is only available for participants in the US.

Good luck lovelies!

Staycation With CitizenM Hotels

 Radley London - Richmond Park bag

Last weekend I had the pleasure of staying at CitizenM Hotel in NYC for a fun staycation!
It was my first time doing such thing and it was truly amazing. I love to walk around and feel like a tourist in my own city and staying at a trendy hotel made that experience so much more special.

CitizenM Hotel offers a unique experience for their guest where affordable luxury is key. 
Every detail of your stay is thought out (they even have complementary power adopters in each room) and all the appliances are super modern- you can control your whole room from an iPad so each room is customizable!
This hotel has two bars, outdoor chill area, gym and a HUGE lobby that actually feels like a cozy eclectic decorated living room. In the evening my boyfriend and I enjoyed cocktails at the rooftop bar that had stunning views of Times Square and in the morning we had some breakfast and went for a walk around central park. Can't get any sweeter than that!

Check out my experience in this short video:

If you are in NYC (they also have locations in Amsterdam, Paris, London) and looking to do something different I would highly recommend staying at Citizen M for an unforgettable experience. While you are here check out these fun things to do around the hotel:

Watch a new musical on Broadway- how about Amelie?

See some wildlife at the Central Park Zoo.
Grab some dinner at Stardust Diner with singing waiters.
Get inspired at the Musuem of Modern Art.

Pretty in Plaid

Boohoo.com shirt
Vintage dress
Cat Footwear shoes

Last week I went on vacation to Italy and France with my mom (blog post soon to come) and boy did we have fun! I brought back so many souvenirs like this beret I bought off a street vendor. I felt it was only appropriate to buy a french beret when in Paris. 

Back in Brooklyn I had a lot of fun styling this outfit with my new favorite pair of shoes from Cat footwear. They are so comfortable and easy to wear- they where definetly my go to shoe when I was in Europe. Check out their spring collection here!

Au revoir, 'til next time.

Drinking Happily with Kombrewcha

Hey lovelies!
My boyfriend and I spent the night in with some home made pizza and Kombrewcha.
I've been a fan of kombucha tea for a while now and the first time I tried Kombrewcha (a few months ago, prior to this collaboration) I knew I had found my favorite. 
Not only are they delicious but it is good for your health & made locally in Brooklyn (woo-hoo)!
I love supporting my fellow brooklynites especially when they are up to something really good.
They have 4 flavors that are each different than anything you have ever tried.

Leave a comment below if you've had kombucha before! I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Weekend Look //

F21- sweater
Carolee choker (It can also be worn in different lengths)
AMI clubwear- Jeans and Shoes (14.99, yass!)

Hey Lovelies! 

I received the Coach Rogue bag a couple of weeks ago and honestly it couldn't be a more perfect bag.
I have been wearing it non-stop since I've gotten it. It has perfect sized straps to wear on your shoulder and the handles are good for when you want to wear it as a purse. It comes in a variety of colors and this blue shade I would consider it a modern neutral color. It really does go with everything! I'm excited to share with you this outfit I wore this weekend because one of the things I look forward to on the weekends is getting the chance to dress up and take my time to choose an outfit- unlike during the week when I'm always in a super rush and picking out a cute outfit tends to take the back burner...
Can anyone else relate? Weekends for me= dress up!

Thank you Coach for sending me this lovely bag, all opinions are my own.
