My Cozy Fall Essentials

Autumn's presence is undeniable; the leaves are changing, scarves are making their first appearances, and it's that time of year when I list my cozy fall essentials. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="3901,3902"] BEAUTY | I like the idea of going against the beauty grain in fall; dying my hair lighter and blonder but maintaining an autumn-esque feel with the way I apply makeup. For the lips, I'm loving Nori by Bite; it's a brownish, deep red color that pairs well with my mostly neutral wardrobe. For the eyes, I love the Naked...

Eyebrow Routine: How to Get Perfect Brows

Let’s talk about brows, baby! In all seriousness, I’ve let this blog go on long enough without addressing my obsession with the perfect brow routine. It’s finally time.   One of the first things people notice about my appearance is usually my eyes and by extension, my eyebrows. With the exception of a few awkward middle-school age years where I won the first prize in unnecessary over-plucking, I have had thick, “statement” brows my entire life. One time on a date, a guy told me I had...

#WFHCOFFEETOUR: BWÉ CAFE, EP. 3

If you live in Hoboken, then you know the unspoken coffee shop rule: BWÉ is the way. That's why episode three of the Work From Home Coffee Tour is all about the Bokes' favorite local spot, located on 11th and Washington. [gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="3817,3818"] Bwe Cafe hits on all of the important aspects a freelancer could potentially want out of a coffee shop: strong Wifi, ample outlets, cute decor, incomparable almond chai lattes, and a bit of outdoor seating. Because it's such a hot spot in...

Portland, Oregon: A Travel Guide

[gallery size="full" ids="3772,3777,3771"] In June, I took the plunge and booked an airplane ticket to Oregon. After months and months of obsessing over pictures of the Oregon coast and its many mountains on Tumblr, I finally decided to make the trip. I shot all of these images on my iPhone 6, but I hope the pictures translate the emotions I felt during my time in Portland. It is hands down my favorite city that I've ever visited, so much so that I hope in the near future...

New York City Street Style: Look Book

Sometimes goals run big: like getting into an Ivy League School or scoring a promotion at work. Other times, goals are as banal (but equally as important) as surviving the New York City Heat Wave of 2016. Let's just say that the last couple of days, my goals qualify as banal. I'm just trying to survive out here in these SoHo streets. Make no mistake, it is WAY too melty outside to pull of jeans, a three-quarter sleeved blouse, and a leather jacket, but since August is...

#WFHCoffeeTour: Chalait, Ep. 2

Guess who's back? Back again. It's the #WFHCoffeeTour and we're here again with episode two. This week's choice spot? Chalait. This time around, I found myself sitting in the heart of the West Village, sipping a green matcha tea latte and eating an amazing sandwich consisting of unlikely ingredients. Chalait is a quaint, tiny coffee shop on the corner of Christopher Street and W. 4th. Minimalism is its aesthetic; there isn't much in the way of seating--only a few stools bar style and several seats by the windows....
