5 Instagram-able spots in NYC

Since moving to NYC I have been on the look out for the best Instagram spot…I think thats the most millennial thing I’ve ever said! Anyways after doing some research here are the best spots for taking amazing photos that all your friends will be jealous of!

  1. Pietro NoLita

This all pink 1950s style restaurant is the cutest place ever! You can take an assortment of photos their, food, yourself, or the ecelectic culture inside. Located at 174 Elizabeth St. in the middle of Little Italy and Soho!

2. Cha Cha Matcha

I ventured down to their Little Italy location the other day and fell in love! It doesn’t matter where you stand because every inch of this place is picture perfect! I got the Matcha lemonade and I am obsessed! Next time I go back i’m trying the soft served!!

3. SoHo (Greene St. and Prince St.)

This little area of SoHo is lined with stores like Dior, LV, and Alice and Olivia. It isn’t super crowded like Spring St. so for those SoHo styled photos I would make your way down to the cross streets of Greene and Prince!

4. Central Park (Sheeps Meadow)

This area of Central Park is perfect for that picturesque picnic. So many movies have used this as a backdrop such as ‘How to be single, Enchanted, 13 going on 30, etc.’ Grab your girlfriends and a picnic basket and have an instgramable picnic.

5. West Village (Bleecker St. or Perry St.)

West Village would be my dream neighborhood for the city! I looked at an apartment there and the area was a dream except that it was a 5 floor walk up and the apartment was 200 Sq ft. This area has character on every corner. If you are a Sex and The City fan the Perry St. is the way to go since that is where Carries apartment is. Bleecker St. is busy but has tons of brunch places and magnolia bakery. Definitely a must see!

First off I know I know…I have been MIA when it comes to my blog and I want to get it up and going. I have taken all my time and put it into my youtube channel and Instagram. It been a little over two weeks since I have moved into my NYC apartment and I will have an apartment tour up next Sunday. It has been an adjustment and I’ve had moments of thinking this was the best decision and moments of being overwhelmed and homesick. I am finding my groove and excited because I see my family in 3 weeks!!

 

Maxi skirts and dresses are my summer staple. I love the maxi style because its the most comfortable next to a romper. My shoes are from Lulus and I have fallen more times then I care to admit in them so even though they are cute, they are not so easy to walk in.

Okay so its been a month and I haven’t been on here for so many reasons that I am about to get into and explain. Before I do that I’ll break down my life for the past few months and why I’ve been MIA…

  1. I’m moving to NYC in less than a month
  2. I am going to be an Aunt
  3. I am also going to be a maid of honor
  4. I have thrown myself into youtube
  5. We sold my childhood home

Honestly I could keep going, but some things are even more personal then the 5 above. So lets chat…

WELCOME TO NEW YORK, IT’S BEEN WAITING FOR YOU…

thats right I’m moving to the big apple and I am nervous, excited, and a little stressed out. I am going to NYC May 8th-12th so don’t forget to follow me on Instagram and subscribe to my youtube channel to see all of my NYC adventures. I will be getting my apartment during that trip and moving the last week of May. I can’t wait!!!

 

Yes you read that right, I AM GOING TO BE AN AUNT!!

My sister and Fiancé  are expecting a baby boy this September and our family is so thankful and blessed for this little miracle. If you don’t know my sister has been through hell and back with autoimmune diseases and is finally in a good place with all her medical illnesses. It was always a scary thought that carrying her own kids wouldn’t be in the picture, but thankfully God has blessed Ashlyn, Andrew, and everyone around them with a miracle. Oh and the best part, his name will be Easton Wayne Lightfoot.

Staying on the subject of Ashlyn and Andrew, They are getting married!!! The will be saying ‘I do’ on July 13, 2019! Of course I will be the maid of honor lol…it will be so beautiful and so much is already in the works. They have secured a beautiful venue and Ashlyn has found the most stunning wedding dress. TBH I don’t know how she did it, but she looked amazing in every dress.

 

I’m sure y’all know that I have gotten into Youtube…I love it and all of my supporters on that platform are so sweet and I care about them sooo much!! If you aren’t already go check out my channel and subscribe here . I post new videos every Tuesday and Friday.

 

Sadly we had to say bye to my childhood home, I won’t get into too much detail but we are all moving on to new chapters in our lives and felt that staying in Katy wasn’t part of our next beginning as a family. I was really sad to not have our beautiful home for family events and holidays, but home is where family is and whether we are in a childhood home or a different state its the love and constant laugh that makes it a good time!

 

That wraps up todays blog post and if y’all want more then just let me know anything specific y’all want to see!

The Best Online Clothing Stores

Hello Love! I got this great idea from my sister Ashley, to do a blog post on the best online stores! I am super picky about what I buy online so I am definitely the girl for this! I do need to give a disclaimer that I am affiliated with a few stores, but non are paying me to say anything about them, theses my authentic opinion!

  1. MISSGUIDED

I have been shopping through Missguided for 4 years now! I first found them on accident  while trying to online shop for a California trip I had coming up! I saw their variety in prices and was really curious how the quality would turn out! I ordered a dress, a few tops, and a pair of jeans to see how things would turn out and loved everything! FUN FACT: My senior year homecoming dress is from this site and I got it for 60-70 dollars and I wore that same dress to graduation so you know I really liked it haha!

2. Lulus

This store is definitely a big one for youtubers and influencers…they sponsor a lot of peoples videos and posts, but they honestly have the cutest clothes and amazing sales!

3. Nasty Gal

I first found this store after watching the Netflix series Nasty Gal and fell in love with dynamic and influence Sophia Amoruso had on the world at such a young age! I ended up shopping her site and loving it!

4. Revolve

Probably one of the most well known and online stores! This is definitely an expensive store, but totally worth it because it has the coolest and most trending items! Something to check out if you haven’t already!

5. I.AM.GIA

So personally I haven’t shopped from this store online so I can’t give a 100% on it, but I have seen their quality in person and I think its really good! This store is definitely for the fashionistas that like to push the envelope and try crazy, new trends!
