Postcard of Avalon houses

Living in New York City, you get used to maximizing the little space you do have. Things that I took for granted growing up in the suburbs are a rare premium here: a dishwasher, a washer/dryer, a hall closet, a front yard and a backyard and a side...

The highlights of summer 2014

Without a doubt, summer is my favorite season. My favorite outfit is a sundress and sandals, I want to spend every single minute in the sunshine, and I just love the long days and late nights. Growing up in California, autumn wasn't anything too...
