On my Mind: my 20’s

It seems that I’m not the only one going through a period of transition. I’m only 21 and just beginning my 20’s, but I keep meeting people who are going through the same things, even years ahead of me, so I thought this passage (below the 2 images) was worthy of sharing. Worth the lengthy read:

Talking with Tao Okamoto, model

I had the special opportunity to interview Tao Okamoto the other day for a freelance assignment. At first, when the person called me to do this the name didn’t register, but when I started to prepare for the interview I realized “DUH, TAO OKAMOTO!” She’s the established Japanese model who you’ve probably seen gracing countless runways, covers of Vogue, editorials and ad campaigns. Many of…

5 days, 5 lessons

Last week was the first week/beginning of what I would consider to be…. my dream internship. I’ve only been in the office for 5 days in total so far, but it feels like I’ve been there for a month; I’ve done and learned so much already. After a full day of interning and attending a night class to finish off the day, I come home…

Classy and Fabulous

I am usually never late to appointments/events- it’s quite rare. I’m only late if unforeseen circumstances arise or if it’s intentional. Someone once told me that “If you’re early, you’re on time. If you’re on time, you’re late. If you’re late, forget about it”. Ever since I’ve been told that in high school I have made it a point to always be at least 10-15 minutes…

We found Hope in a Loveless place

It’s easy to get caught up in the New York hustle: we all have our own things to do, places to go, people to see. Sometimes it really does seem like a jungle out there where it is every man for himself. We often put ourselves first or become selfish and we allow relationships with others to fizzle on the backburner. In the aftermath of…

3 for 2013

2013. Another chance to get it right and another chance to outdo ourselves and the year before. Yesterday was day 3 of 2013, so I took the time to think about and write down my 3 New Year’s resolutions (4 just didn’t sound right.) Once you publish something, you’re held accountable for it. Here’s to hoping these resolutions will make me a better student, entrepreneur…

The best of (Chuck) Bass

I’ve watched the Gossip Girl season finale about 3 times now… and I’ve never been more proud to say that I have been a fan of Gossip Girl since i read the full book series in 6/7th(?) grade. It’s great to see it wasn’t butchered like so many other movie/tv adaptations. I find it quite amazing how different mediums- books or tv- transform the content. I…

Another inspirational person happens to have almost the same initials as Diana Vreeland: fashion designer: Diane Von Furstenberg. Confident, business savvy and fashionable, DVF exudes sex appeal and self love (in the good way of course) Here’s a post for everyone trying to get back into the groove of things after Sandy and for all the millennials like me who might be experiencing a lack…
