I'll forever have a love/hate relationship with jumpsuits 🙂 who else can relate? 😂🚽 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Linking my look on the app — jumpsuit is only $16 and comes in other colors:

“A step backward may just give us the perspective we need to move forward.” — I’ve found myself really thinking about this quote lately. 💬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When have you felt like you've needed to really hit pause and take a step back? ⏸ Whether it's been frustration with people, goals, relationships, work, or even accomplishments in your life? I’ve felt frustration in not being able to be consistent with my blog these past weeks. I’ve felt frustration with communicating with people. I’ve felt frustration in feeling “stuck” in a lot of aspects of my life. Reminder: taking a step back doesn’t devalue all that you’ve done — online AND offline. 💓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ What are some aspects of your life you’ve found yourself feeling “stuck” and needing to take a step back? ❤️

The sun being out does magical, unexplainable things to my mood ☀️ thank you for (finally) gracing us with your presence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are some moments that you cannot possibly capture in a photo. 🌅And I think that’s the beauty of it all. I spent the majority of my time on the @nuitrose cruise admiring the beauty of what I was surrounded by and who I was with. You know what this photo doesn’t capture? ⛴💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- my best friend capturing this shot and enjoying this event with me as the incredible human being he is. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- a confetti popping boat with people cheering on all sides and sailing into the sunset. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ - the happiness of me finally enjoying a Friday night without the pressure to be ‘working.’ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀I just want to remind everyone the simplest thing: what you see and what you share on social media does not capture who you are as a person. Remember that. 💓💫

Happy #MothersDay to the strongest woman I know 💓 you are my rock, my biggest supporter, and it’s amazing how you always know the right things to say. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don’t think Moms get enough credit for everything they do for us. And yet they continue to do what they do each and every day. 💫 And even though I’m not here to celebrate with you, every day is Mother’s Day in my book. I love you and miss you. You mean the 🌎 to me. I’ll see you SOON. ❤️ #happymothersday

Cheers to rosé szn 🍷💕 had the pleasure of sailing on the @nuitrose with @presidentcheese + @wagstaffmktg last night // check out the beautiful sunset + more over on my #instastories ⛴💫 #lifewellpaired #nuitrose #sunset

It’s finally ‘Picnic-in-Central-Park’ weather and I’m here for it. ☀️🌸🌼// for those of you who know me, sneakers are my guilty pleasure 👟 I wore my new FILA Ray Tracer sneakers for a stroll through @centralparknyc last weekend, and the comfort level is 🙌🏻. You can pick out your favorite pair through the link in my bio ⚡️⚡️ #FILARayTracer #sponsored @FILAUSA @champssports.womens

Shop my look on the app:

Mother’s Day is hard when your mom deserves an island, but you can only afford a @venusetfleur bouquet. 🌹✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re still still on the hunt for a #MothersDay gift, these real @venusetfleur roses last an entire YEAR and you can also choose to ship it in time for this weekend 👌🏻💐 #venusetfleur #sponsored

Probably the one quote to sum up my weekend. 💫 It was a cold and rainy weekend here in NYC ☔️ and I’m actually happy that was the case. I feel like nyc gets a little quieter when it rains. People are less chatty, and the streets are less busy than usual. When you’re constantly surrounded by noise, you learn to appreciate the quiet.
I spent the majority of it not looking at a screen and more of it focusing on the goals I’ve somehow managed to let slip, and setting reminders of what it is I want to go after. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope everyone had a great weekend and #CincoDeMayo 🌮🥑 here’s to a new week 👌🏻 #happysunday #currentmood

[NEW BLOG POST] I've been asked what my secret is to staying positive in stressful situations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Truth is, I still struggle with finding that balance, but over time, I've found the one thing I always go back to in tough circumstances. ❤️ Head over to to read.
