Hello NYC

I know it has been a while since I have written. Life in New York City has been so crazy. I work Monday through Friday from 10 am to around 6:30 pm. When I get home from work, I am exhausted. On the weekends, I relax and walk around the city enjoying the moment. Last weekend I attended Teen Vogue Fashion University for the second year in the row. I will post pictures from that soon!

In the meantime, here are some items that I think are essential for this winter!
