Just a few postcards from New York Cit-ay!

This week I did some sketching, got glittery nails, toasted the end of winter with some bubbly rosé, wore my new cat-eye sunnies everywhere, and soaked in the sights and sounds of this crazy place I call home.

I also got a new necklace, which I fell in love with and then promptly broke. Story of my life.

What are YOU up to this week?

R.I.P., cute necklace!

I admit, I’m guilty of buying this bottle because it is the perfect color pink.

It also has Krystal’s dog’s name.

Rosé connoisseurs, I can feel you cringing. Oops!

One of the coolest buildings in New York—and I work across from it!

That’s it for this week’s random photo diary. Time for some strong coffee and a marathon writing session!
