So I have officially lived in New York City for one MONTH!! I can honestly say I love being in the city so far! I am sorry I have not posted in a while but this past month has been a whirl wind, and I am really trying to take the city by storm! I come from a very small town so being here and getting around has taken some getting used too but I am getting better everyday (at least I think so!).
Every weekend that I have been here so far I have tried to go and see something new or go somewhere I have never been! That is what this post will be about! How I have spent the last month in the city, and of course it will include some shopping I have done! I have to tell you about this amazing beauty oil I found at Chelsea Market!!
After a long drive (and a huge thank you to my mom and sister) I got all moved into my room at FIT! My room is very cozy and you can see the empire state building right out the window! We spent the weekend getting my room set up and getting a few extra things for my room. I was so sad to say goodbye to them 😦 They are my biggest supporters and being so far away from them is definitely one of the hardest parts! Luckily though I am living with some great girls down here and having each other has been very helpful!!
The first week we mostly just explored! We went to the High Line, Chelsea Market, some thrift stores, and we found the most amazing roof top bar! At the Chelsea Market I found this really nice oil (for hair, face, body, and hand), I was hesitant to buy it at first-but for the next week all I could think about was how soft it made my skin and hair! So of course the next weekend I wandered back and had to buy it!! I am including a picture below so you can see what it looks like! It is made right here in Brooklyn which is pretty cool too!
So far I have also gone to the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, and SOHO. The Brooklyn Bridge was nice to walk on, but the whole time all I could think about was that time in the Sex and the City Movie where MIranda and Steve decide to meet their lol!! Coney Island was fun-it was a little windy that day but we just walked around and it was still nice to be by the ocean!
Sorry this post is so long-but I am going to include some pictures of my last month in the city! I promise I am going to work on posting more frequently! This past month has just been soo busy but I wouldn’t change a second of it! I have been waiting a very long time to be at this point in my life and I am so thankful for having the opportunity to make my dreams come true!
