back in the new york groove

I'm sure you've all been wondering what my long hiatus from my beloved blog has been about. Well, as some of you already know, I moved to New York City a few weeks ago!

I started work at one of my dream advertising agencies and have been trying to settle in to my new Brooklyn Heights abode so things have been pretty insane (hence such little time to blog). It's been a long process setting everything up in the new place (my first ever, actually) but here's a sneak peek at what's been taking up most of my time.

I'll warn you, it's small but this is New York after all so what do you expect? To me it's perfect and more importantly, it's finally starting to feel like home. Now for some decorating to really cozy this place up. More pictures to come soon!

Happy September!

Like I said, the apartment is pretty bare-bones right now as far as decor but here are some of my inspirations for what's to come next...
