I first fell in love with social media and blogging when I was a senior in college in NYC. I took a bunch of classes and learned how influential social media was becoming and how it can truly make or break a business. Somehow after interning and freelancing I became inspired enough to launch my own social media consulting business in which I had clients from all different walks of life, all with different wants and needs and all with one common question…’What is a hashtag?’ haha OK maybe they had a few more questions than that but either way something I always needed? A nice quiet workspace.
Well I found it! WeWork and smartwater teamed up to create a cool, calm and collected workspace fit for blogging in NYC and it was my go-to workspace for the past few weeks! With its clean design and uplifting vibe it was the perfect space to get some projects done and clear my head. The space was filled with fun designed clouds that light up to music, plenty of smartwater and a bunch of work stations and couches to relax after a long day of writing (which is much needed)!
One of the things I love most about this space is the ‘Words Of Wisdom’ on the wall. ‘Great Things Happen Little By Little & Sip By Sip‘…I am a true believer in that! Having some inspiring words surrounding you in any workspace is key to having ‘Positive Vibes Only’ 🙂
*This story is brought to you by smartwater, who believes in making progress every day little by little and sip by sip. That’s how you move up up up.
Love is in the air…or maybe just on the wall 😉 Downtown in NoLita this wall gets a new paint job every season from different artists…over the summer I shot in front of the wall when it was ‘Anna Wintour + Karl Lagerfeld‘ and here I am in front of the wall of hearts (I LOVE all of the bright colors for spring) so naturally I had to wear a bright clue outfit in front of it…ya know to really make the paint job ‘Pop’ 😉
Finding gems like this is what I love about NYC. All of the street art and the gorgeous scenery in this great spring weather really makes me realize why I do love NY although I am constantly dreaming of living in LA. I guess you always think the grass is greener on the other side huh?
Move over LBD a new dress trend is in town for the spring…cue the LWD aka Little White Dress! Although I love wearing white year round, with spring comes plenty of special occasions like graduations, Mother’s Day, prom, banquets, weddings and more that all call for a nice simple dress that you can hopefully get more than one day’s wear out of. That was always my challenge. I needed a dress to wear for so many different occasions but I didn’t want it to be so dressy that I could only wear it once or twice. Well with this season’s ‘Little White Dress’ trend…there are plenty of options that can be re-worn year round!
Woohoo and cheers for the weekend! I have been seriously anticipating the arrival of the weekend because I am ready for some spring vibes and sunshine 😉 Who is with me on that?! I can’t wait to shoot looks without totally freezing myself to bits and I definitely have seeing James Franco and Jonah Hill’s new movie ‘True Story‘ on the agenda for the weekend…the trailer has totally sucked me in! Plus staring at Jonah Hill and James Franco for two hours is pretty much a guaranteed way to have a splendid weekend haha!
Another reason I am anxious for the weekend? The fact that it’ll be warm enough to wear more of my favorite skater skirts like I am in today’s post! If I could wear skirts and dresses everyday of the week I would. I hate wearing pants…I prefer to show a little leg and feel girly at all times what can I say…I am a dork from time to time :p
What better way to prep for the weekend and this gorgeous spring weather than with a little shopping during Lord & Taylor’s ‘Friends and Family’ sale event happening now! I am an avid Lord & Taylor shopper (and by avid I mean I have one of their credit cards and pretty much shop there minimum once a month #IMayHaveAProblem) :p Anyways…anytime they have a huge sale event like this one, in my mind it is a guilt free way of getting what I want and never paying retail for it! Makes sense right? haha Above are my top 10 picks plus here are four other pieces I am lusting after that are also upwards of 25% off with code ‘FRIENDS‘ at checkout <3
