Watching Watch What Happens Live....live! Cait and I lived our Bravo dream to see WWHL in person and it was such a treat! We kicked the night off with dinner at The Greek and ended it on a high note watching a mini Party of Five reunion.

Recovering from DCM, a 48 hour improv marathon Grant and his group Garbage perform in. It's always a treat when he's in town and fun to relive our earlier days in the city, when we were able to see his shows.

Packing for Nantucket! I'm off this weekend to Nantucket to celebrate Christina's 30th! As I mentioned earlier this week the weather is going to be a slight bummer, but it's ok - I can still sleep on the beach. We have so many fun things planned, including a sunset sail.

Avoiding all of the Fourth of July sales going on. As I've mentioned I have a few big trips coming up and want to save money so I can buy a souvenir or two! I also have enough clothes to last me for the next five years, so I don't really need anything (but there are lots I want).

Continuing to clean out my apartment. Thank God I'm starting this now, because I can tell already I'm going to be overwhelmed when I move this fall. This article has been helping me stay motivated and on track. I especially love the "If I were shopping now would I buy this" question.

Bon weekend!

Pretty Pins for July 4th

I'll be in Nantucket for the 4th, but wish I was going to be in Palm Beach or out east as the weather will be a bit chillier than I would like. Cool weather aside, I can't wait to don all of my festive MDS Stripes looks and catch up with friends by the beach. (You can always follow our adventures and misadventures on instagram) I've rounded up a few images that have been inspiring my Fourth of July weekend looks and general decor choices. Enjoy!

Celebrating my birthday. About two years ago I started treating my birthday as a "new years" sort of deal and make a list of things I want to accomplish that year. As this is my 29th birthday, I'm feeling a bit more pressure to do something big for myself before I turn 30. I love having a list of things that I want to do for myself - it kind of makes the year seem a bit more productive and fun!

Enjoying my first sound bath. A few months ago I started meditating regularly. Taking 30 minutes for myself to just sit and be has done wonders for my mental health. I took it a step further this week and participated in a 45 minute sound bath, which was surprisingly intense. I felt a range of emotions and was energized by the experience. If you ever get the chance, you should try it!

Thrifting on Sundays. I recently became a member of Housing works. Every Sunday my mom goes on a thrift store run and comes back with all sorts of treasures, highlights from teh past have been Tiffany candle sticks, mink coats, and gorgeous artwork. I recently had a major score - a Lillian August couch! I'm currently storing it on LI, but hope to use it soon in either a Palm Beach home or future apartment.

Snacking on early bird granola bars. These bars are my latest love and obsession and have been a total game changer. Ever since I started the low fodmap diet I've had to cut out a lot of the bad foods and replace them with healthier, cleaner options so this little treat has been my saving grace.

Planning out my future apartment. We're moving this year to a different apartment and I could not be more excited! Not that there is anything wrong with our apartment, but the location isn't the best and I'm ready for a real two bedroom apartment - or at least bigger bedrooms with a closet. I should probably find the apartment before planning, but it's just so fun to look at inspiration all day.

Happy Weekend!

First Day of Summer Outfit Inspiration

In honor of the Summer Solstice, I'm rounding up a few of my favorite looks for the summer. This year I'm all about ditching my usual black from head to toe look and bringing in bright pinks, reds, oranges, and blues with all white for work.

New NY Store: The White Company

One morning while walking down 5th I noticed a new store opening that put an extra spring in my step - British based store The White Company. I first discovered them years ago on a trip to London, so I was over the moon excited to learn they were opening stateside. I love love love their simple and easy aesthetic, it's perfect for both city and country living. While I'm trying not to buy anything this year as I'm moving in the fall, I just may need to pick up a few pillows and the carafe and stacking tumblers (have I ever mentioned my obsession with them?).  Below are a few of my favorite inspiration images from the website:

Dream Birthday Wishlist

I don't know exactly what I'm getting for my birthday (fingers crossed it's a special bag!!) but I thought it would be fun to make a list of other things I've loved, because a girl can make a dream wishlist, right?

Pretty Pins for A Birthday Month

As I mentioned last week, it's my birthday month! I'm in the (bad) habit of forgetting it's also two of my best friend's birthday month too, but I'm a diva and shameless so - whoops! It's been a fairly busy month so far, which is basically the opposite of where I was this winter. From catching drinks with friends, to weekend country getaways, to ending the volleyball season on a high I can safely say it's been a good time. As always, you can catch the highs and lows on my instagram. I'm in a blue colored mood this week, so I'm rounding up a few images that have been inspiring my style, travel, and decor choices as of late.

Listening to Mundy nonstop on spotify. Kristen and I went to a concert of his at the Irish Arts Center earlier this week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! His songs July and Galway Girl have been on repeat. Little snippets from the night are up on instagram!

Admiring the Cole & Son Ardmore Collection Katie Armour shared on her blog. How pretty are all of the different patterns? It makes me wish for a home that I own and could decorate myself.

Attending the Irish Arts Center Spring Cocktails event at the New York Athletic Club. What a great night! I almost never make it out until one in the morning, but I did it (and on a Monday too!). Needless to say, I've been exhausted all week.

Planning on organizing and editing my books tonight. Wild Friday night, right? I've had a pretty social week, so I'm going to take it easy and cook a nice dinner and then start going through my books before I have to scramble when we move later this year.

Trying the baby feet peel. Have you done this yet? Living in Koreatown I get exposed to many exotic and fun beauty treatments and this might be my favorite. Nick, Grace and I have a spa night in and we're all obsessed. I won't get into details, but it was very satisfying and now I probably won't need to get a pedicure for 6 months or so.

Party Planning: My Birthday

It's my birthday month and, as it's my last birthday in my 20s, I'm planning on milking it for all it's worth. Because I'm crazy, I've been planning an entire week of celebrations - kicking off with a birthday dinner, followed by a staycation and going to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen with Cait! For my dinner theme, I've pulled a few inspiration images that I'll share with you all (and because I don't think any of my friends still follow this blog):
