My Holiday Highlights

Long gone are the Christmases when my sister and I gallivanted down the stairs to a mountain (or two) of gifts. Now, with me in my twenties and my sister in her thirties, gift-giving in our family has changed. Our presents are now few and usually more meaningful and purposeful. (Let's just say Christmas currency is basically Trader Joe's gift cards. Everybody has to eat, am I right?!) Here are a few of my holiday highlights: Okay, so I specifically said I didn't want anything like this --...

This Week’s Pinterest Highlights

Home Decor I've been on the hunt for a light-up, battery-powered hashtag sign for a couple of weeks now. This one pictured below is over $200 and while it's exactly what I was looking for, I found a more inexpensive version at Bed, Bath, and Beyond for under $30! Fashion As the weather gets colder, I'm constantly thinking of ways to stay warmer (and also keep my signature style). I love this plaid flannel because it has sweatshirt material built into the hood, so you know it's super cozy. Fitness I'm...

Reflections on Turning 23

It 's lacking a candle, but here's a photo of how I spent my last day as a 22 year old human: (Because there's no more delicious way to end your 22-year-old days than a Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity 3 on the Upper East Side.) As of right now, I have about 15 minutes until I enter "nobody likes you when you're 23" territory and I'm celebrating it by a) blogging and b) gazing around in awe at how organized, settled, and homey my new apartment...

Surprise: I’ve Moved!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed a recent change in scenery (although to be honest, my bedroom set-up is nearly exactly the same). Surprise! I've moved. How long I'll stay in this new apartment is uncertain (in fact, in general, it feels like a temporary situation), but regardless, I'm having fun sprucing up my new space and breathing some "me" into it. As I'm still lacking in furniture (a couch, a kitchen table, and chairs), I don't think it's yet time to reveal the...

DIY: Chocolate Hazelnut Chai Latte Recipe

I haven't posted much food content in the past, but if you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I love cooking and baking. (I didn't necessarily say I was great at it. I'm more of a total amateur who likes the allure of the kitchen but doesn't quite understand it.) I recently fell in love with this hot drink recipe and decided to share. Since my two favorite things are chai and hot chocolate, I thought: Why not combine the two? Here's my...
