Happy Halloween!

      I bring out this cat-ear hat every year around Halloween and this year it's no exception! It's a fun way to incorporate a little bit of the Halloween spirit without having to put on a full costume. I only wish that I could dress up in something fun at work, but unfortunately I have to wear suits in my profession! I'm also loving my new cat framed sunglasses by Quay (get it here). You can get a similar cat-ear hat here and a beanie version here. Lastly, don't forget to check out photos of my trip to Green-Wood Cemetery here, for some gorgeous Gothic architecture that's perfect for Halloween.

Currently Loving - Nike Black and White Roshe Ones

      I was never a huge sneakerhead, but ever since I moved to NYC from California, I've realized the importance of super comfy shoes because the city is a walking city. These aren't my first black and white sneakers from Nike as I also have a pair of black and white flyknit Nike Frees (another favorite of mine). I really love black and white sneakers especially, because although sneakers by nature are super casual, black and white sneakers can still look really chic.

Five Fall Favorites

       We're in the heart of Autumn here in NYC, and I'm loving every minute of it! It's without a doubt my favorite season, and I'm going to be so sad when it's over. Autumn in NYC is gorgeous, and with all the trees changing colors, the sound of the wind blowing crispy leaves across the pavement, the crisp wind, and sipping pumpkin spice lattes - there isn't another time during the year where I'm happier walking through the city. Click through to see some of my current fall favorites!

Product Review: Kiehl's Super Multi Corrective Cream

      Up for review today is the Super Multi-Corrective Cream by Kiehls! Since winter is coming in a month or two, I decided to purchase a more hydrating cream (post to come soon about my other new beauty buys for winter). I love skincare by Kiehls and have had good experiences with their products since I was first introduced to the brand in college and used their Ultra Facial Moisturizer. This all in one anti-aging cream claims to lift, smooth, sculpt, retexturize and moisturize skin.

Borrowed from the Boys - Old Spice Amber Body Wash

      The other day I was at Target perusing the Halloween decorations among other things, and I remembered that my boyfriend was running low on his own body wash. Naturally, I grabbed a bottle of his usual body wash (Timber or Bearglove which are also made by Old Spice), but then another scent caught my eye from the description - Amber with Black Currant. I actually love the smell of black currant, so I had to take a whiff. Luckily I did, because this stuff smells amazing!

I ❤ NY: History & Scenery at Green-Wood Cemetery

      I finally made it out to Green-Wood Cemetery last week during a beautiful crisp but sunny fall day. I know what you're thinking, why would you go walk the grounds of a cemetery? when I told some of my friends that I was doing this, they gave me a weird look too. But it's actually a historic park full of history and gorgeous monuments. It's hard to find such a large green space in any of the five boroughs of NYC (besides Central Park), and it's even more difficult to find a place in NYC where you don't feel like you're in a metropolitan area. It was such a peaceful park and it wasn't creepy at all (during the day at least). Green-Wood also has a tranquility garden that's more modern and features a beautiful koi pond. It's become one of my favorite places in NYC, and with Halloween right around the corner, I thought it was an appropriate post!

Scenes From My Short Trip to Chicago

      If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I took a short trip to Chicago a couple weeks ago. Up until this recent trip, I hadn't been back to Chicago for around 10 years or more. It was memorable for me to visit all the places I went as a child, especially the Shedd Aquarium! I highly recommend checking out the Shedd Aquarium, it's one of my favorite aquariums that I've been to! Lastly, I also recommend making a reservation at Little Goat diner for some amazing brunch!

Beauty Buys - Sephora's Soko to Tokyo Sample Box

      I'm sorry for the lack of posts in the past two weeks! I've been swamped with personal errands, work, and I also just got back from a trip to Chicago! I'm back on track with my normal posting schedule, and today's post is about a new beauty box I picked up from Sephora! I picked this box up after my cousin pointed it out to me. I don't usually purchase these deluxe sample boxes because there is always only one or two products I want to try out from the entire box. However I wanted to try practically all the products in this box!
