This is the square closest to my apartment in South Williamsburg. My mind is blown by how vast this city is—it could almost swallow me whole and no one would know. The grime has caught me off guard and there is no such thing as silence. But the food... and the galleries... and the endless history... It's everything I thought it would be and more.
I spent the winter holiday with my family in Cocoa Beach, FL staring at the waves. On New Years Eve, we had a bbq at the beach. At midnight, we blasted a remix of Edward Sharpe's Home and ran into the ocean in our underwear as fireworks shot off the beach in every direction. It was one of the most magical nights I've ever had with my family
My mother moved into the North Loop of Minneapolis, Minnesota. I'm making a pit stop here for a few weeks on my way to New York City. I've really enjoyed seeing the mill history in relationship to the Mississippi River.
Food to remember:
Bar La Grassa
Butcher & the Boar
Justin and I were in LA for a wedding at Cal Tech this month and we got the chance to hit up MOCA, Venice, and Abbot Kinney in the process. Quick lil' pit stop that I'll remember forever.
To move or not to move? I got a job offer to lead content for Everlane and I'm touring SF this weekend to figure out if this is the right move for me or not. It's such an incredible company with a mission I admire. On top of that, SF is amazing... like, look at it! DECISIONS, DECISIONS.

My life has taken some interesting twists and turns lately. I took a once-in-a-lifetime trip with my mother to Cinque Terre, Italy. I was traveling to visit my best friend, Paulina, and knew I needed to stop on the way over. My mind was literally blown – I actually could not take a bad picture.
We stayed in Manarolo, one of the sleepier towns, and ate like crazy. Ahhh... the pesto and hand-rolled triofe made my dreams come true. I would definitely recommend visiting here.
