Fishing for ice cream

Thursday, September 29, 2016

The other night Cole and I went on a long awaited journey to find the recently opened ice cream store  Taiyaki. If you have yet to see these crazy fish cones floating around on instagram, I am sure you will soon. Moving to NYC is amazing for so many reasons but lets be real. . . THE FOOD. . . I am in the heart of way too much deliciousness it's difficult not to make every day a food adventure.  
So back to the cones... Most the time when I get something like this and post to the gram everyone seems to go comment crazy saying things like ... is it really good? ... I bet that just looks cool. . . 
blah blah blah . . . 
I am here to tell you the fish cone is delicious
Cole of course went the more normal route with a vanilla and chocolate twist topped with strawberries and chocolate sauce. ( he always gets anything chocolate) I decided to try the traditional Japanese flavors, black sesame and matcha, if you are a little more daring and like unique flavors I honestly thought it was so yummy. Then comes the best part, getting to eat the open mouthed fish shaped cake cone! It's kind of like an ice-cream cake in your hand a little hard on the outside, doughy in the middle and chuck full of soft serve, what else could you ask for?

Now that Fall is coming in full swing over here I am trying to transition my wardrobe. I swear it was a heat wave less than a week ago but then again I could still just be having nightmares lol. I am crushing hard on the Beret's this season. I don't know if I would have dared put one on last year but a few weeks ago my brother, Cole and I were walking around soho and I put one on as a joke and looked in the mirror and thought wait a second. . . I love this! So now I am a proud owner of 3 Beret's and I am pretty sure the collection is growing! 
I am also really stoked on this Kimono piece I found at Free People. I have always been a kimono fan but this piece is amazing. I love the detail at the bottom and the sleeves. In New York you walk outside your apartment and think 'shoot it's freezing I wish I had a coat' but then you realize after you walk 25 blocks to your destination you get pretty hot. So I love this piece because it allows me to layer without adding to much.

Embroidered Denim

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

My favorite trending piece right now is embroidered denim. I feel like ever since I was a kid I have just loved patch work, pins all the embellishments! One thing I really do think is that embroidered denim never goes out of style. I think it's always cool and unique and adds so much to a look.
I created a little look book below of some of my favorites for the fall! They seem to just go out of stock so fast so if you find a pair you like, I would definitely recommend locking them down!

Living in a studio apartment in NYC can get kind of crazy when it comes to decorating. On one hand you want to be the minimalist who doesn't have clutter and keeps everything simple, but on the other you want to decorate every corner because you only have so much space and might as well have fun. It seems like every 2 weeks we are rearranging things or trying to figurer out a new way to see our space. As anyone knows New York is crazy expensive and rent is ridiculous, but we all justify it because the city just never stops giving. I am so so grateful for Urban Outfitters when it comes to Home decor. They absolutely kill it on offering amazing pieces at insanely affordable prices. I don't think I even registered how much furniture was until I moved here. So for anyone who is wanting to get creative in their space or add a little flavor I linked below all the fun items we have used in our apartment to give each wall a little love as well as some of my favorite go-to bedding that allows me to get really creative elsewhere in my apartment. Hope you enjoy. Any tips or questions please let know. I know how creative so many of you are! Happy decorating.

Leanne Marshall

Leanne Marshall is one of the most amazing designers. I just got to attend her show at fashion week and left feeling like I was floating on a cloud. This dress is honestly so insane I felt like i was wearing a piece of art. Of course I had to add a rock n' roll twist to it with my leather. Shout out to John my super intendant who let us sneak onto the roof of my building for some fun pics.
