B Y E, B Y E 2015 — Crazy to think that 2015 is coming to a close! It’s been a big year for me + the blog…and although it’s going to be bittersweet to say goodbye to 2015, 2016 is bound to be even more exciting, scary + one hell of a ride 😉 To prep for NYE + to look back on 2015, my blogger bestie Rachel Ross and I headed to the Hyatt Hotel in Times Square (right next to where the ball drops!) for a fun filled day of relaxation at the spa, sips of champagne in a nice suite + a cocktail and appetizers at the rooftop Bar 54!Rachel + I got invited by the Hyatt Times Square to explore all they have to offer…from their rooftop bar to their luxurious and totally glam Marilyn Monroe inspired spa…the day was absolutely A M A Z I N G and it was a great way to spend a little time in NYC when I was in town last week for Christmas 🙂 I haven’t seen Rachel since before I moved to LA + what better way to catch up than with some quality girl time in the spa…After hitting the spa for some nail + hair services, we headed to the most awesome suite (complete with a picture perfect view of Times Square of course)…naturally I had to be a ‘cliche’ blogger + snap a picture…complete with flowers 😉 #SorryNotSorry Anytime I travel, bringing my laptop is a M U S T + having a room with a view is a great way to get the juices flowing and inspire some creativity in my writing…especially if it is a new city, state or town! This is the first time I actually got to sit back + relax in Times Square (normally the hustle + bustle of all the tourists makes Times Square a tad exhausting + overwhelming, but the Hyatt makes it such an easy, breezy experience). It wouldn’t be a perfect girl’s day / night without a little cheers with some champagne…R O O M service! Rachel + I reminisced about all of the things that happened to us in 2015 + our blog / career goals for 2016…basically, keep having fun + take a sh*t ton of pictures 😉 One of the coolest parts of the day was actually spending the night at the rooftop bar and seeing the infamous ‘ball’ in Times Square for the NYE Ball Drop! Talk about an amazing view!! 🙂 Rachel + I couldn’t help but stare :pSo here is to 2016! Hopefully more fun times, girls days + exciting collaborations ahead! 🙂 P.S. My go to for NYE? A chic LBD!
