One of the reasons why I blog is simply to have the space to write: getting things “on paper” helps me to process my feelings and organize my thoughts. I also love having a record of my life over the past few years: a place that holds all of my stories, my photos, the ups and downs of travel. But sometimes, I also just want to remember and share the little things that brought me day-to-day joy. Every Friday, I’ll give you a peek into the book I currently can’t put down, a great restaurant discovery, a fun new product or an inspiring quote: a few things that I think you might enjoy before we all take off into the glory that is the weekend!Wall and ferns in the West Village, New York City

Today is my very last day at ONA, which I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around: it’s so strange to think that I’ll no longer be Instagramming for them from my phone, or coming up with fun collaboration ideas, or always be keeping my eyes open for cool influencers to try out the bags. It’s been such a fun two years, and it’s strange to see it come to a close–and I have SUCH a hard time releasing control. But alas: I have a week of funemployment ahead of me, and then I start at Vimeo. Expect the most wonderful things to happen!

Postcard from a skyscraper sunset

New York City has some epic sunsets, but too often they’re hidden behind all of those skyscrapers. The only way to remedy this: go up to the very top of one of those skyscrapers. Top of the Rock and the Empire State Building are great public options, but it’s even more fun if it’s not a […]

Date night: Museum Hack!

Sometimes I sit down in front of a piece of art, ostensibly to examine the piece but usually just to people-watch. I usually get museum fatigue after about an […]

When it rains, it pours and notes on what’s happening next

Here’s what the last couple of weeks have looked like: I’d accepted one job offer, put in my two weeks’ notice, went through three rounds of interviews in 48 hours for another position (that was cleared by HR on the day that I put in my two weeks’), accepted a great side freelance gig, found out […]

Postcard from Governors Island

One of my “summer resolutions” was to visit Governors Island, simply because it’s only open in the summertime and because I’d never been before. But my summer weekends quickly filled up (BBQs in Brooklyn! Berkshires! Beach! Boston!) and suddenly it was Labor Day, and I was profoundly disappointed in my scheduling abilities.  And THEN as […]
