Get To Know Me

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be writing my first blog post. Starting a blog has been a dream of mine for quite some time. I have always enjoyed sharing candid moments of my life, photos, organizational tips, product and travel recommendations, you name it- what better platform to share all of this than a blog? For my first post, I am sharing some of my favorite places, cocktails, and sources of inspiration to give you a better idea of who I am and what my blogging journey might look like. Welcome! xx

Favorite vacation spot// Charleston, SC

The pastel colored homes, perfectly manicured window boxes, food scene, shopping, history, and coastal vibe put this town at the top of my list for favorite vacation spots.  I took my first trip in April 2017 and I will be back next month for a bachelorette party! I plan to do a blog post in the future sharing my favorite spots to eat, drink, and shop- so stay tuned.

Favorite city// New York, NY

This was an easy one.  Since I was a little girl, New York has sparked a fire in my heart.  I love the diverse culture, endless streets of restaurants and shopping, charming storefronts and cafes, and breathtaking skyline views.  My boyfriend and I plan to move to Manhattan as soon as I finish up school in May 2018 and I couldn’t be more excited!

Favorite cocktail// All of them

Love me a good cocktail- I can’t pick just one!  When I’m gearing up for a night of drinking with friends- vodka soda with extra lime.  In the summer- a refreshing mojito.   With tacos- Patron margarita. I love anything with citrus and fresh herbs.

Favorite wine// Pinot Noir

Always.  I do love a glass of Chardonnay in the Summer though.

Favorite caffeinated beverage// Cappuccino

The espresso kick, velvety foam, instagrammable aesthetic- need I say more?  I’m on a cappuccino-fueled mission to visit all of the cutest coffee shops.

Favorite nail polish// Essie Gel Couture

Right now I am LOVING Essie’s line of long wear polishes.  You can almost guarantee that I will be wearing a neutral light pink or red.  My two favorites from this line are called Fairy Tailor and Beauty Marked.

Favorite look// Simple

        To describe my sense of style in three words- simple, neutral, and comfortable. There’s nothing you can’t accomplish in a flattering pair of jeans, flowy top or cozy sweater, and a neutral shoe. I believe in investing in the quality closet staple pieces.   For these staple items I shop at Madewell, J. Crew, and Banana Republic. Fun fact: I own more navy and white striped pieces than one person should in a lifetime.

I hope this post gave you a bit more insight on what I am all about! Here are some photos from my Charleston trip back in April.  Counting down the days until I go back in September!

About

Welcome to my blog! My intentions are to share a bit about myself and the things that interest me (and hopefully interest you too), and to have fun.  I’m Leah and I am a twenty-something graduate student pursuing my Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy.  My friends and family have always told me that I view the world through rose-colored glasses, which should give you some insight on my perspective on life.

 I plan to share some of my tried and true type-A organizational tips, local coffee shop reviews, the occasional cocktail recipe, and recommendations from my travels.  I hope you enjoy! xx
