October is almost gone (thank God, bye Felicia!). November is right around the corner and 2017 is a mere 9 weeks away. Can you believe that? 9 weeks! It feels like yesterday I was just at Starbucks drinking a chai latte writing down my goals for 2016.

A friend of mine recently asked me if I was a “resolution girl” of which, I answered in a very stern tone, “YAAAS.” [snap, snap] I love lists. I make one everyday. If I don’t have a list, I don’t know what to do with my life. True story. “But why do you have to start at the beginning of the year,” he asked, “why not start your resolutions now?” He had a point. Which got me thinking…

My Beautiful Bookcase!

Hey guys! Happy almost-Halloween!

In this week’s video with Wayfair, I’m showing you how I’ve transformed my entryway bookcase into a showstopping focal point in my studio apartment using knick-knacks from my travels, magazines, books and more!

Just wanted to say thank you SO much to everyone who tuned in these past six weeks. It’s been such a pleasure and so much fun to share my apartment with you guys. Adding video content to my blog was so scary for me (because I absolutely dread speaking in front of the camera) but when all said and done, 100% worth it. I feel like I’ve grown so much since my first video and can’t wait to do more!

Anyways, I hope you’ve enjoyed this partnership with Wayfair (big thank you to the Wayfair team for choosing me to be apart of such an amazing group of Youtubers). You can subscribe here for more videos on home decor. And as always, please feel free to share your feedback in the comment section (like, what videos you would like to see next) below! Have a safe weekend!

Lots of love today!

Fact: I’ve never worked in the fashion industry.

I mean, I’ve assisted a stylist but that’s about it. I never attended school for fashion. I never worked at a magazine. I never worked at a fashion PR firm. Now that I think of it, I don’t really have a formal background in fashion. [scratches head]

Fact: So when I sit down at my computer to write about fashion, sometimes I hesitate. Not because I don’t love fashion – I do, I’m obsessed (that’s why I have a blog) – it’s just not always my specialty. I love styling. I know I have a good eye. I’m good at improvising with what I have in my closet. But, truth be told, I’m better at writing about real life.

Romantic Dinner at Home

In this week’s video with Wayfair, I’m showing you how to set the table and mood for a romantic dinner at home! We all know dining can get old and expensive fast. It’s fun but let’s be real – there’s nothing quite like surprising your friend or significant other with a romantic dinner at home. All you need is a simple centerpiece, plenty of candles, cloth napkins and a set of dinnerware… Check out more below, subscribe to Wayfair’s Youtube channel and as always, leave your feedback in the comment section! <3

Lately, it’s been ice cream, Netflix and face masks. I’ve needed a change…

So earlier this week, I walked into my first dance class after almost three years of no ballet, no contemporary, no hip-hop, no movement, no nothing. Having taken dance classes my entire life (I was very passionate about it), I’ve come to wonder why I ever stopped in the first place. Not only was it so much fun (awkward at first) but such a release. I left class feeling sweaty and energized – with a bounce in my step. I felt like me again.

When you’re busy, it can be difficult to take care of yourself. Trust me, I know this well. I’m like an all in or all out kind of girl. There’s no halfway for me. I really suck at balancing my life. Being committed to my goals, blog and personal relationships takes a lot of hard work. And many times, I’m the one that suffers. I’m exhausted, drained and am hard on myself when I can’t do it all.

Believe it or not, investing in well-made pieces saves you money in the long run. For the price of one or two outfits from a fast fashion store, you could buy a dress you love and that will last you for years to come. I’m not suggesting you ditch fast fashion or shell out $500 for a plain white t-shirt, but I do think you should buy pieces you can always count on when you need to look chic (i.e. date night, holiday work party, girl’s getaway, etc.)
