Same City, New Chapter

Monday, July 31, 2017


If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I spent this past weekend moving into a new apartment after two years of living in New York's Upper West Side. Needless to say my arms feel like they've been through a week of rowing class, though I owe a ton of gratitude to my family for helping me through the process. Despite sweating all through the weekend we made time to celebrate my parents' 25th anniversary with a dinner in the neighborhood of my very first apartment, East Village.

Living in a city like New York is truly an unending adventure. One minute you're lugging your bed down four flights of a pre-war walk-up, and the next you're slipping into your Sunday best for dinner and cocktails. There is no time to waste here, and while this lifestyle takes a toll on my energy, I am also fueled by it.

So here's to a another chapter in the city that continuously keeps me on my feet. It's been a year with a great deal of newness between my career and home, and I'm sure it does not stop there. In the meantime I'll be preparing my new space for a visual room tour -- stay tuned!

  11. Happy anniversary to your parents! 25 years, how lovely. I feel like at some point it's been every girl's dream to live in New York and you sure are living the dream. I like how you describe it, reminds me of Lagos (in Nigeria) which is where I grew up. It can be very stressful and draining but it inspires to hustle at the same time.

    Loving your outfit, those mules are everything. Can't wait to see your room tour! xx
