Im sure you guys saw on insta story as well as on my Instagram but two of my best friends came to spend ny very first New Years in New York with me. Having moved to New York not knowing has definitely been a harder move than I expected and makes the holidays just as hard so I was beyond thrilled to have them by my side to celebrate this holiday season with me.
My loves landed on friday and I picked them up in Soho and then took them to brooklyn to show them my crib. Spent maybe 20 minutes when we to to my apartment because we wanted to be out and about adventuring in the city.
Headed to Times to see how the ball would be dropped and of course pizza. We walked in Central Park and it snowed non-stop, ,stop for lunch on the upper manhattan. Even stopped to admire some of our favorites shops on Ave. Grab some delicious food in China Town and Nolita.
The weather that weekend was absolute freezing with highs of freezing but no weather was gonna stop us, at least before 6pm.
I have to say it truly was the best New Years I’ve Ever had mostly because I got to spend it my girls!
My first December in New York!
My first everything in New York!
But My very First Christmas In New York!
I can’t believe I’ve survived here in NYC this long. But all in all its been a really nice holiday season here in the city, even if I didn’t stay in NYC for christmas Eve or Christmas day. Its been really wonderful getting squinted with the traditions; such as lights all over the city, ice skating at Rockefeller Center and Bryant park, a giant christmas tree in Bryant Park (which is what your seeing in some of these photos), delicious foods and amazing crafts at the market in Bryant Park (which is where I found some amazing presents for family and friends).
Having traditions can be nice but starting new traditions can also be nice as well. I dint really know what to expect for my very first christmas season in the New York but I can say the excitement and atmosphere of it all didn’t disappoint. I’ve made new friends along the way but I’ve also gotten to experience new York in a totally different perspective because of the Holiday and for that is a blessing within itself, because to be honest the city can get quite terrifying and yes I know for a city with thousands of people that may may sound difficult buts its the worst kind of loneliness because you can be surrounded by a sea of people but you don’t feel like you belong, and that kind of feeling can be crippling but with new traditions and holiday spirit it can make you feel like some things really are possible.
So I left New York on the 22n’d of December and took a bus to Indiana…yep thats right a bus all the way from New York ( i don’t know what I was thinking)? I didn’t get to Indiana till the 23rd at noon, after an hour on the bus I regretted the decision. But it made that 22 hour bus ride so worth it because I got to spend those four short days with my family and friends,
Its funny how when your young Christmas feels so far away like it will never come, you can barely contain your excitement the week of and christmas Eve you can barely sleep waiting to here the reindeer on the roof and Santa coming down the Chimney. But now that older i see that the holiday is so over commercialized and you see that a lot of the meaning of the holiday is nonexistence. My faith is very important to me and christmas is a holiday that wouldn’t exist without the state of that faith, so to be Christmas is a truly a holiday where you have to slow things down and spent time with the ones you love. Hope you all had a lovely Christmas!
Did you ever want to go to Neverland as a kid? Well I sure did! I feel like Tinker Bell looking for Peter in beautiful, majestic Neverland.
Hey y’all I thought this post went up on the blog but I guess it didn’t….sorrry guys. So I think the title of this post says it all. You know your girl a “forever summer girl” but with this fickle New York weather its nice to have glimpses of really nice days.
Strolling through a lovely park in Lower Manhattan an feeling like Tinker Belle. IF only I found my Peter pan? jk? Years ago I would’ve never worn a dress like this-mostsy because the back is completely open and wearing something thats exposed has never been my cup of tea but I’ve realized that lives too short not to wear the a “just because of the its back”. So great lesson learned is jut do what you bloody want and wear what you want.
Tinker Belle Bun in action
Open Back Newbie but plan on wearing much more
Shoes to die for!! And legs that go with it!!
What I’m Wearing: Dress: Urban Outfitters// Shoes: Nordstrom Rack ( Steve Madden)
If I was a spice girl I would be sporty Spice…… Feeling very extra so I got my Reebok shoes during fashion Week with my work and I am just obsessed with them! They are so comfortable, and absolutely adorable, and of course I just can’t help but wear them no-stop.
I know this combination is a little different and not one you see too much on the blog but I love the sporty look with a cute addition to it. These chinos are actually more so work pants but somehow the combo works well together, its a very easy and on the go outfit that you can dress up or dress down.
