at the beginning of this mess was so precious:

This post from on @nytimes πŸ”› Instagram is so horrifying
with no end in sight.

A podcast that has been a great resource on the current state of affairs is 

I just keep trucking along, quite literally in a rental truck.
Getting dressed once in a while is a saving grace for my mental health.

Sucks is an understatement at this point...

"I am learning to seek peace in a sea of changing things"



Not going to lie, it feels weird to drive into NYC, 
I have been commuting to NYC for over 2 years now by train,
but it is a totally different experience to drive, 
especially given the current state of affairs in NYC

Just trying to seek peace, maintain a little hope and keep moving forward.


What I Wore: glasses- Muse Buyers from GlassesUSA, lips- NARS "Sex Machine" + Too Faced "Unicorn Tears", earrings + necklace- Julie Vos, top- Target, jeans- Old Navy, flats- Candies, bag- Phillip Lim x Target



Today's mani is KL Polish x Colourpop "Taurus",
Ring is Julie Vos, of course!

On my way home from NYC we hopped over to Brooklyn 
to pick up some Other Half brews, 
gotta support our local breweries!
I especially loved the "Space Diamonds" Imperial IPA

The Brooklyn side of NYC is such a great view

Although my favorite view is from the Lincoln Tunnel helix,
see what I mean HERE

Quarantine Queen


I may make it through quarantine without buying a tie-dye sweatsuit,
but I did not make it through without bleach tie-dying a sweatshirt...
I mean all the cool kids are doing it,
my inspo was from my friend @kel_deee πŸ”› Instagram 

My steps of this DIY: 
1. Buy sweatshirt on Amazon- this is the one I got & it is so soft!
I am a medium for reference.
2. THE STEP I SHOULD HAVE DONE: wash the sweatshirt first and do not dry
I just soaked the sweatshirt first but I think it would work better if it was washed 
and the fabric was loosened up. 
3. I wanted the bottom of the sweatshirt and sleeves to be more of a dip dye,
 so I soaked the bottoms in the sink with some bleach
4. Then I brought the sweatshirt to the tub and pinched the center and spun the sweatshirt (like you would tie-dye) and used rubber bands/twine to tie up the sweatshirt.
I also rolled the sleeves separate from the body of the sweatshirt
5. I picked alternating sections of the sweatshirt to pour bleach over.
6. I flipped it over and did the same to the other side.
7. Let it sit for 10-15 mins 
8. Untie and rinse in the shower 
9. Wash like normal in the washer machine & dry
10. Rock your new sweatshirt!



I especially love how the back came out:
What I Wore: glasses- c/o Lafont, lips- bellapierre cosmetics "incognito" via Ipsy, earrings-  Julie Vos "Soho Hoops Mixed Metal Medium", sweatshirt- DIY {via Amazon}, leggings- Spanx, loafers- via Ebay, bag- Coach {thrifted}, bag strap- vintage from my hubby



+ a face mask that is v. on brand:

Shout out to my friend Renee for this leopard mask, 
if we have to wear them, might as well make it leopard

At least I am quarantined with someone who likes to cook
& is really good at it.
We have started a new tradition during quarantine with "Sunday Whole Fish"

I finally got my hands on the "Cannoli Bit" ice cream 
from the bent spoon in Princeton

Best purchase of quarantine.
This ice cream is SO GOOD. 
Zesty, rich and chocolate bits!

Some whole fish + the bent spoon making this Memorial Day a great one!
