NYU - visual diary #1

Hey guys!

I'm in NYU right now so that's why I haven't been posting lately. I've been extremely busy but i've also been having a lot of fun. I'll post my work as soon as I can! Here's a visual diary of my summer so far:

All of these pictures were taken with my iPhone 5, so I'm sorry the quality is so low. I'm actually getting a disposable camera tomorrow because I'm planning on keeping a better visual diary and doing something fun with it. We'll see how that turns out.


My friend from London! We hadn't seen each other in almost a year.



So this pair of jeans are about three sizes too big. I don't have a belt with me so we got a little creative. It actually works very well.


Cool special effects with makeup.


My new watch!


I wanted to include my face in the picture but failed because you could totally tell the cut was fake with this lighting. My arm looks weirdly bony though,  and that's pretty cool and creepy.

I'll be back with more soon! Thanks for reading!

red white and denim

Hey everyone!

I have yet another outfit post for you guys! For the last few days I've had an urge to go to different stores and restaurants in my city that I've never been to before and I've been having a lot of fun, but also eating way too much.

This first outfit I wore to go to one of my current favorite coffee shop with my brother. My former favorite one is right next to this one, but I haven't been there in the longest time because they don't sell iced coffee. Why the heck wouldn't you sell iced coffee and especially during the summertime? They just sell this nasty Icee kind of drink that pretty much tastes like water but it's brown. Brown water. Anyway, I'm loving this new coffee shop called Santa Teresa, their delicious chocolate truffles and real iced coffee. I think I went there everyday last week.



However, I do NOT appreciate baristas putting cinnamon on my drinks without asking first!


Sippin' on my iced coffee.


Caramel/walnut dark chocolate truffles.




That's my brother and his broken arm.

The second outfit I wore to go out for ice cream and coffee. Something you should know about me is that I don't really like ice cream, and especially the fruit flavored ones. But the thing they sell at this ice cream shop is not ice cream. The first thing the lady working there said to us is that their ice creams are dairy free and don't have much sugar. I took a risk and ordered a mango ice cream, thinking it would taste like a sorbet. I was so surprised when I tasted that "ice cream"! It's like wayyy better than a sorbet, because it tastes like you are actually eating a mango with a different consistency. It's crazy, I don't even know how to explain this.

And, of course, an affogato to finish off. :)

midi skirts and pizza

Hey everyone!

I'm kind of obsessed with midi and maxi skirts right now. I used to hate them because I felt like they made me look shorter than I already am (I'm like 5'5 so that's still kind of short), but now I love them and I want to wear them everyday. So here's two ways I styled two different midi skirts.

Outfit 1

This first outfit is really nice and comfortable to just go out and get some coffee. Speaking of coffee, I didn't have any for two days and I'm fine so I think that means I'm officially not addicted to it. 

At first I thought about wearing this outfit with some wedges, but ended up not doing it just because I find flats more comfortable to walk in. Those flats I'm wearing were like my favorite shoes for a really long time so they're really worn out, but I still like them and I pair them with everything.

I wore this second outfit to grab lunch at one of my favorite restaurants.
