Mission and a Vision
Ever since freshman year, I’ve made vision boards for myself. I think it’s one thing to think about what you want, but another thing to see those goals and dreams everyday as you get one step closer to achieving them. I’m in the process of redoing my vision boards (I try to update them every few months because what I want often changes/gets clearer) so I’ve been perusing…
Wow. So tomorrow is the first day of my last semester of college. Winter break flew by! A lot has happened in just the past week. Some of the things that come to mind: I took the time to write a long letter to a friend, I lost my phone in the city and I had an amazing long heart to heart conversation with someone…
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

We often put ourselves first or become selfish and we allow relationships with others to fizzle on the backburner. In the aftermath of…
View from the Top
If it wasn’t already obvious, I’m a sucker for a view. Someone visiting from Korea asked me what he should go explore. As an inveterate walker and lover of the city, I offered to take him around today.
I spent a bit of my Christmas this year reliving a childhood memory: strolling through Longwood Gardens in none other than, yes, Pennsylvania.
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…
the Eye has to Travel
Both Maggie Prescott in 1957’s Funny Face and the hilariously ridiculous Miss Maxwell in William Klein’s Qui êtes vous, Polly Maggoo? were inspired by Diana Vreeland Who is Diana Vreeland? I didn’t really know, but I did hear how she had once famously said, “There’s only one very good life and that’s the life you know you want and you make it yourself.” So in an attempt…
If you are somewhere in the Northeast and waited/waiting for Sandy to pass like I was, your windows probably looked something like this. For hours… By this time you are probably quite aware that when it rains, it drips. When it drips, it blurs. When it blurs, you wipe or squeegee.
So… this is what Fall (is supposed to) look(s) like: (Photos all taken by me)
