‘Tis the season to be greedy. And since tonight is already the third night of Hanukah, I’ve been thinking about gifts that I could only dream of receiving. Here’s a fantasy list of ten.
1. Matte Black R8 – One of my dream cars…So I could look like a combination of Batman/a Robot and drive really fast.
2. The Honeymoon House in Brazil from Twilight:Breaking Dawn- If you’ve seen the movie, you understand.
3. Ferretti 680- Who wouldn’t want a yacht… (that’s rhetorical).
4. Burberry Cashmere Blanket- For the ultimate cuddlefest.
5. DeBeers 5.16-Carat Blue Diamond Ring– It was sold recently at an auction in Hong Kong for $6.4M. What a shame– I think blue would have complemented my skin tone fabulously.
6. A Floating Bed- I think it would solve all of my sleeping problems.
7. LED Mirror with Built-In iPod Dock– Ideal for my future bathroom in my new apartment.
8. Jetlev R200 Water JetPack- WOW. I want to fly.
9. Fendi Bicycle- I have awful coordination so it would probably be for show. Like a museum in my house.
10. My Dream Man: Zach from the Real World’s body with Ryan Gosling’s personality, Jake Gyllenhaal’s eyes & hair, and Bryan Greenberg’s style.– I’ve put a lot of thought into this. Is it really too much to ask for?
Hope you get great gifts this holiday. If you get one from my list, don’t tell me because I’ll be very jealous.

That’s Manhattan, in case you didn’t know. Isn’t she pretty?
So I’m in my final days here at Boston University. I recently received the amazing news that I got my very first dream job in Manhattan. Life’s pretty good right now. Everyone keeps asking me if I’m nervous/scared/going to miss college life. My answer: Nah, I’m ready to move on. Why, you might ask?
1. I like being productive.
College gives you the false realization that spending Fridays (or weekends, or other days you don’t have class) in bed all day is okay. For some people, that might float your boat. The thing is, when you actually get a 9-5 (or 9-7, or 8-6, or 10-5 if you’re lucky but you get what I’m saying), this doesn’t really fly. You’re gonna have to get out of bed. And if you want to look good, you’re going to have to get out of bed even earlier in order to get your butt to the gym.
2. I like meeting new people.
Though I was never that girl with an enormous network of “friends,” I’ve acquired a satisfying number of homies that I truly enjoy spending time with/catching up with/hearing from. I’m the type of person who really likes to get to know people and connect with them on different levels, and I don’t mean the level of chillin’ at the frat party holding the funnel up for them. I’ll stay in touch with you if you’re meaningful to me (is that harsh?), but I’m also excited to meet new acquaintances who are in this “grown-up” world that I’m about to enter.
3. I’m going to be in the greatest city in the world.
I’ve done a lot of traveling. Manhattan is, in my opinion, the greatest city in the world. If you know me, you’ve heard me changing my mind about where I want to be about 5 or 6 different times (I want to be in Boston! Oh no, I’m going to San Francisco. Actually I want to go Atlanta). When it comes down to it though, I could never refuse an offer of living in the city with the best…well… everything. Sorry Boston, the food here kinda sucks. I could write another post on why Manhattan is the best city in the world. Can’t fit that all into one little paragraph.
4. I have an amazing opportunity.
The growing field of social media is one you should really be familiar with, as it is taking over a good chunk of the advertising/marketing world. And I will be immersed in it while simultaneously working with some amazing fashion brands. I am SO enthused to be working for a company that offers services that I am so highly passionate about. I’m so lucky to be getting this opportunity, especially straight out of school. I wouldn’t prefer to be doing anything else. (I’ll be working for Jane Creative– check out their awesome website.)
So if you were kind of confused about why I am “over college,” there are a few of my major reasons. I’m sure you could see my point of view. If not, it’s cool. I just hope you remember to set your alarm the night before you decide to enter the real world.

This is really creepy/weird/I hate cats, but if you’re like me you’ll realize you just watched the entire thing and you might be thinking to yourself “why did I just sit through that?” I think I was enticed by his teeth.

About a year ago I was preparing to study abroad. I was lucky enough to live in London for 4 months, and visit a different city almost every weekend of my time there. Just wanted to share a few of my favorite photographs from moments in my travels. (I need a new camera *cough* Hannukah *cough*). Sorry, I think I’m getting a little cold.

So my shipment of Warby Parker glasses for try-on finally came in and I am ecstatic, as I am VERY much in need of some new glasses!
For those of you who do not know about Warby Parker, it is a fairly new glasses company that allows you to choose up to 5 pairs of glasses to try on before you make any purchase. You can even try them on online by uploading a photo of your face on the site and then selecting a pair of glasses to digitally try on! I preferred to see them in person.
The best part is that you can purchase any pair for just $95 a pop. And they add your prescription as well!
I’m currently trying on the glasses but I CANNOT decide which pair looks the best. So I decided to ask you guys for your opinion! From the 5 that I ordered, I chose my top 3 choices, so below I’ve posted pictures of my lovely self in each pair.
P.S. I wasn’t trying to be a (nerdy) diva with the head pose. I had to turn my head to the side to avoid a glare. 😀
