Taking a bite out of the Big Apple.

 I've been m.i.a. from my blog for quite some time, but now that I'm officially settled into my new found home in New York for the next month and a half, I'm ready to get up to speed.

Why am I in New York, you ask? I got accepted to be an intern in the fashion and jewelry closet of Marie Claire!

It's been an amazing experience so far, but I have to say my favorite part about the job has been some of the wonderful people I've met through it!

Now that you know why I'm here, I'll share with you a few hi-lites of my trip here thus far.

Death in a bowl at Lucky Cheng's

Obviously I had to be a part of a dance contest

Our server!

Scarfing down one of Nathan's infamous hot dogs.

Shopping, shopping, and more shopping...

Celebrating my birthday!

The view of the city from the closet at Marie Claire.

And my ultimate favorite, seeing "The Wizard of Oz" in Bryant Park.

Stay tuned for more updates from my adventures in NYC!

Please,please pardon my hiatus in blog posts! I'm not an "excuse-maker", but with my photographer (my sister) getting a new job with hours totally opposite of mine to take my pictures as well as my crazy work hours, I lacked the time to even get dressed up and go out!

i'll have a water with extra lemon.

If clothes grew on trees, I'd be one happy girl. If money grew on trees...I'd be even happier. However; in a world where the most exciting thing I see in my trees is ratty old leaves and birds that use my car as their own personal toilet, I'm forced to hustle for the green.

I currently hold two jobs. One as a production assistant at Detroit's top news station, and the other...a waitress.

I've been slinging food for money since I was 15, and although the job has its ups and downs, I'd have to say there's a lot of humor that comes in hand with it,too. 

Here's a few servers I'd definitely give 20% to.

Joanna and her flair in "Office Space"

Smith Jerrod in "Sex and the City"

So lately I've been on quite the home decor kick. I find myself already collecting pieces of furniture, old dishes, frames, and ornate thrifted mirrors. I've always had a vision in my mind of how I'd like my future home to look. I'm a huge fan of bright bold walls, gaudy vanities, elaborate decorations like chandeliers and mirrors, and a great big closet. In case this doesn't sum it up enough, I'll let these pictures of some of my favorite home decor inspiration do the talking.
