I absolutely love everything about Ariana Grande. Her voice, her style, and the way she carries herself are so very distinctive and so unique from other stars. I adore this quote from her about being happy with yourself, flaws and all!
When I was in New York, we visited Dylan's Candy Bar, a three story shop full of delightful confections of every color. I am so inspired by Dylan Lauren (daughter of Ralph, of course) and her brand that she has expanded. The shop was absolutely fabulous and I found the sweetest gem on the floor of the stairs!
Loved this quote I found outside of a church in NYC.
My trip to NYC was very successful, even though I discovered that pursuing an education in NY is just not for me. Both of the schools I visited were absolutely lovely, but I think New York would provide better opportunities for me as a college graduate as opposed to a college student.
Whenever I get a little bit down or I'm going through a time of stress and worry, I always find myself saying this in my head. Why should you be down on yourself when there are so many wonderful things in store for you?
I am absolutely ecstatic in preparation for my family's trip to NYC over Spring Break! We've scheduled visits at both NYU and the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. I'm interested in getting a feel for the city and to tour an example of a more arts-based style school as opposed to a more traditional college experience. Even if college life in NYC ends up not being for me, I hope to live in the city at least once throughout the course of my life.
