why i turned down a free trip to jamaica

in today’s digital age, social media influencers are continuously becoming synonymous with models. but our career paths look nothing like the traditional models that currently exist as well as the models that came before them. it’s no secret that social media influencers and bloggers wear infinite hats when it comes to our own brands. we are the stylists, models, creative directors, accountants, business managers, photographers…the list goes on and on. but what has me concerned is the value (or lack thereof) influencers are giving themselves and the work that they will do simply in exchange for social media promotion or even recognition.

monday blues

okay well that was a much longer break from blogging than i anticipated it being! it's been three weeks but i'm finally back with my last post from charleston! but i also wanted to come on here to share why i've been a little mia not only here on the blog but also why i've been minimal on my instagram. the short answer? life has been crazy! but the long answer is definitely a little more complex. not only am i planning a million trips at the moment but i finally hit a breaking point with my starter 5th-floor walk-up apartment in nyc. some of you who follow me on instagram may remember i had a fairly large nordstrom package stolen from my building's entrance in december. i was shocked as i had never had any issues prior to this. while nordstrom refused to do anything, american express saved the day and reimbursed me for the full amount! it's safe to say i will be an amex member for life now!

check please

i couldn't be happier that today is friday! mostly because this week was a completely normal work-week for me and i didn't get a long weekend for the fourth of july...retail problems. although i'm not going to the hamptons this weekend, this post has me itching to go back! this little gingham number was the perfect dress to stop by the maidstone hotel in east hampton and check out their new renovations! if you ever find yourself in search of a hotel when in the hamptons, i highly recommend the maidstone! so instead of coming to terms that i will not be out east this weekend, i will just pretend that i am!

santorini // intentionally wandering

it was another 5am wake-up call for our second morning in santorini and it was this day that i thought andrea was going to throw the alarm against the wall...but it was a good thing she didn't! one of the reasons that this morning was my favorite in santorini wasn't because i was wearing this ahhmazing skirt but because i felt like we had our bearings of the city. our first day we were simply exploring oia and getting lost in the many streets. but come day two, we were "experts." we were able to pinpoint the exact places we wanted to venture to first and that was a monumental stress-reliever.
