I'm starting to get the feeling that London is my lucky gem. For the second year in a row I visited during the off-season, both times escaping a New York blizzard for surprisingly favorable weather. As a city girl I've become smitten with this city because it never falls short of things to see and do. There is a beautiful blend of the historical and modern in this metropolitan capital that can spark interest in just about anyone. That being said, I'm sharing my personal favorites when it comes to taking on the dynamic city of London.

48 hours in Florida -- because why not? This past weekend I left the New York chill behind to visit a friend in West Palm Beach for a brief moment of sun and sand. We sipped piña coladas by the ocean and watched surfers along the boardwalk, all making for a blissful seaside break. I chose to unwind over taking a thousand photos, but these snippets speak for themselves. A little sunshine and some ocean breeze go a long way.

New York is portrayed as the city of opportunity, though often when living here it doesn't quite feel that way. I'm sure my fellow city dwellers can agree that we are always dreaming of the next vacation. But the funny result of leaving New York, whether by dream or plane, is that we always end up coming back.
I read in a friend's Instagram caption recently that "the best thing about leaving NYC is coming back". I know the feeling. This city has a way of greeting you in the most dramatic way possible, whether by annoyingly rerouted train lines or beautifully towering architecture. Either way, it has character. I've recently made a career change and ultimately been reminded of just how much New York can offer if you take advantage of it.
Nothing will ever be handed to you, but this is a place where determination goes a long way. With the recent increase in temperatures I've been able to truly enjoy this energetic city again, and just like the seasons, I'm ready for change.
