My Brooklyn Loft

44230002 44230001 44220023

When I first landed in New York, I wasn't pressed to find a place to live. My uber-generous friends offered up their couch for as long as I needed; until I found the right place, not just a place. Lucky for me, day two of my search yielded this beauty. A block from the metro, a light-flooded kitchen, six genuine, wonderful roommates (yes, 6), and a washer/dryer. Clearly that last one sold me (a rarity in NYC!).

Since then, we've had countless dinner parties, wine-on-the-roof nights, and hours-long conversation around our huge dining table. It's everything I imagined loft living to be.

New York, NY

New York, NY: my new home. Did I mention that to you yet? After returning from my escapades around Europe, I accepted the internship of my dreams, packed a couple suitcases, and moved out East within a mere couple weeks. Spontaneous, yes! But it's always been in my life plan to live in New York City at some point, so the decision took all of 2 seconds. I've been here just short of 6 months, and I feel like I've lived and grown more in these past months than all my years combined. Sure, sometimes I have "I hate New York" days, but this charming town unfailingly turns that into "Why would I want to live anywhere else?" I'm excited to share little bits of my life here, in addition to exciting new jewelry biz updates. The blog vacation is over!

Death & Co.


One of the bartenders at my favorite bar in Boston, Drink* recommended Death & Co. if I was ever in the mood for high quality, well-crafted cocktails. I'll be honest - the service was meh, but the cocktails were worth it. Just get there early because seating is limited.

*I can't say enough good things about this spot. If you're ever in Boston, make sure it's on your list!

She's my fave. And the talent behind the new lookbook photos in the shop. NorCal residents, she's available for booking!
