Hello From The Upper East Side!

I have been absent lately. Sorry about that. 

I moved to New York City from Minneapolis in the first week of June and have just been focusing on the transition and all that comes with moving across the country and starting my first “big girl job”. I am working in corporate fashion retail, specifically with Macy’s.com. I am in an entry-level buying position, and could not be happier with my job. It’s been a fun 2 months so far, and the time is kind of flying! 

I live on the Upper East Side, a lovely little place. I’m close to Central Park, and I like to jog around the reservoir on 90th Street. There are a lot of family-owned small businesses on the UES, which gives it a real neighborhood feel.

I’ve stayed extremely busy around the city, and am constantly trying to maximize my time and find new things to explore and new food to eat! For Restaurant Week (going on now), my friends and I went to Butter and Fig & Olive. Fig & Olive was my favorite, with mushroom croquette for the appetizer and lobster risotto for the entree. AMAZING. 

Below is me with my “rustic” apartment building. Hey, the peeling paint gives it a certain charm, right?!

Home sweet home!

As for the future of my little trend blog, I’m not sure what that’s going to look like yet. Fashion and trends are a huge interest of mine, and if blogging about this stuff was my only job, that would be a very different situation. I’ll just leave off like that for the time being…

Anyways, Happy Saturday!
