the calm before the storm

All these pictures were taken before the winter storm Jonas.

New York City was a total ghost town, covered in snow.
It was pretty magical.
For a city that never sleeps, it was strange seeing 
everything freeze completely.

But the city survived from 27 inches of snow.
Now it's recovery time. 
As well as adjusting time to all the snow on the streets.
But nothing is impossible for New York!

Enjoy your week!


new year, fresh start

Happy happy 2016 to you all! 

I've had a fresh start to the new year.
I found an apartment in the East Village 
and moved in a couple of days ago! 

I absolutely love my new area.
It's filled with so much personality.
Street art, charming cafes, tiny boutiques, 
and delicious restaurants.
I've been spending my days just roaming around 
and taking pictures.

I love walking in the city and this location is everything. 
I'm a short walking distance to all the hot spots and areas.
Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy, Noho, Tribeca, etc.
Downtown NYC is where the action is at.

The apartment itself is a gem. 
I've never found a place so quiet in NYC.
It's almost scary how quiet it is. 
No traffic noises, nobody yelling on the streets.
It's my escape from the busy city life. 

Let me know if you would want a post about my new apartment!



bye 2015

These pictures don't really represent my year of 2015.
Most of them are a few years old.
I just wanted to post a collection of pics 
before the end of the year.

2015 was pretty interesting for sure.
Met new people, had some heartbreaks, graduated from college, 
but most importantly
learned a lot about myself and life.

I'm looking forward to 2016.
It's an even number so that should be good? Right?
I have a lot of new adventures coming up.
It's both scary and exciting.
But living on the edge and not planning too much ahead.

I wish y'all a happy and healthy new year.


beautify me

I wanted to share some of my favorite beauty products.
I featured some of my current obsessions for skincare as well as hair. 
These are also perfect holiday gifts for someone special or just for yourself.

I always wear my hair down 
but this spray adds that beach look that looks so effortless. 
And it smells heavenly!
I need an extra boost for my skin, hair, and nails 
and this is the perfect product for that. 
It makes my nails strong, my skin glow, and my hair shine! 
Couldn't ask for more.
I don't wear much make-up but when I do I use this primer as a base.
It's perfect for my skin since it's oil-free. 
I love this product. 
I use it 2x daily and it balances skin tone and adds a fresh glow.
One of my favorite brands for skincare.
But this product is perfect for extra skin hydration 
as well as for a healthy glow.
In the winter this liquid product is so necessary.
I'm a sucker for good smelling beauty products.
This one smells so good I wish it was edible! 
It's a hand cream that smells like Cookies and Cream.

Non-beauty products:
The Italian blogger/fashionista has made the perfect
phone case.
It comes in other colors as well but the silver is my fav.
9. Fur Pom-Pom Key Chain (similar one)
This baby pink color goes with all my handbags. 
Love it.
