NYC-Apartment

 It’s officially been two months since I moved into my cute little NYC apartment and honestly, sometimes I still can’t believe it! So to celebrate I’m sharing how I snagged my studio and what it looks like. Finding my NYC Apartment Apartment shopping in New York is like a full-time job on its own.

Long time no see! It’s been a crazy few weeks since my last post but I’ve finally accomplished my goal of moving to New York.  Honestly, even though I’ve been here for a little over half a month it still feels so surreal.  If you follow me on Instagram/Facebook you know getting here involved many flights back & forth for various interviews and then packing up everything in a week once landing the role I’m in now. Why the move?…

“If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.”  – Tom Peters A few weeks ago, the company I was with dissolved and I was laid off for the first time ever in my career.  While devastating & stress-inducing for most I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to achieve my next goal.

Even though these very people/situations we attempt to sweep away actually make an impact (good or bad) in our present day life.

Journey to Minimalism

January 24, 2017

Recently while doing laundry and cleaning my room I learned two things; the first being if I try to put anything else in my closet the rod would break, and the second being I’m a bit of a hoarder.  After sharing how to become a better you in my last post 3 Ways to Succeed at New Year, New Me, I definitely had to get my own life together! With the number of goals, I’ve set for this year having a clutter-free living space is a perfect start…
