2 easy items your spring wardrobe NEEDS

Spring things I’m loving RIGHT now.

There’s just something about spring in the city. Perhaps it’s the fact that I moved to NYC in the spring (that’s right, it’s almost my New York birthday!). Simply put, spring is easily my favorite time of the year here! I know that’s a bold statement but think about it—it’s not too hot to layer or too cold to dine outside. And EVERY New Yorker is out and about with a smile on their face! How can you not love spring time in the city?

Sunday Scaries & Selfcare Sunday

Sunday Scaries & Selfcare Sunday

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed our millennial “living for the weekend” mentality? Recenlty I’ve been thinking about how we work 5 days a week with our sole motivation being to reach the weekend–when we do, we spend the weekend dreading the work week ahead. It’s a vicious cycle causing us to live in a constant state of longing and anxiety.
