The Royal Wedding = Real Life Fairy Tale
I can’t even put into words how amazing the Royal Wedding was. (Though I will try since I’m writing about it right now…) I’ve never understood how people are were moved by weddings of people they didn’t know or have any close relation to. However, my fascination with Kate and William and their engagement was slow growing yet strong. I therefore woke up right at 6 to...
My Next Read: The Help
I just finished Something Borrowed and loved it. Therefore I am looking for my next read and I just saw the trailer for the movie The Help featuring funny girl Emma Stone who I am beginning to love more and more. You know I’m a fan of the 50’s-60’s era and intrigued with life in the South. I’m also a big fan of books and movies with strong female characters. I’ve...

GASP! A tear in my beloved blazer!
That was the subject of my email to the CEO of J. Crew when I noticed that my favorite blazer had a tear in the elbow. Yes, the CEO - Millard (Mickey) Drexler. Let me tell you the back story though… I bought this blazer right before I started working. I had been eying it for so long but resisted because it was expensive. However, because I landed a new job I splurged and never looked...
Home Farming in Madison Sq. Park!
Last week there was this really cool event going on in Madison Square Park. We all got emails about it and were encouraged to go and plant some chives for Triscuit’s Home Farming event! So even though it was rainy and kind of gross, Simran (who also graduated from BU and works with me) and I decided to take a break from our hectic day and go see what it was all about. Right when we got...
Lately, I’ve been loving Kate Spade’s spring theme. I don’t actually really own anything Kate Spade (my mom has a classic black purse from them) but I’ve been contemplating making my next wallet purchase from them. Many of you know that I used to ride my bike around BU as a senior. It was a cute vintage high-handled bar street bike appropriately named Mary Poppins. I miss...
J Crew and Gender Roles
Last night I decided to rearrange my closet. For inspiration I opened up my J Crew catalog and started ripping out pages of outfits I liked. I came across this page: Looks like a normal ad. Notice anything different? Ah, the adorable boy with neon pink toe nails may have caught your eye. Then did you read Jenna Lyon, the President and Creative Director’s quote? “Lucky for me, I...
How To Live in New York City →
Picture credit: Thoughtcatalog.com Thinking about moving to New York City? Just graduated and can’t wait to live a movie-like life? I won’t lie, it is at times as if I live in a movie. I eat the bagels and bad pizza, I worry about money and how much goes into my rent. I complain about the rat race and hope that I survive it only to be one of those who “make it big” in...
