Oheka

Anyone who has seen the new Taylor Swift video for ‘Blank Space’ knows it was filmed on a big, beautiful estate that looks like a replica of a European palace. Most people don’t know that the video was filmed entirely at Oheka Castle on Long Island. Built in 1919 on the highest point on the island, Oheka… Continue reading Oheka

Rise of the Jackolanterns

For the record, I really hate surprises. Even worse, I hate knowing that a surprise is coming. It leaves me with too many questions (all of them superficial)- what do I wear? Are we inside? Outside? Where are we going? What are we doing? What do I need to do with my hair?? Even though I… Continue reading Rise of the Jackolanterns

On the Farm

I’m baaaaack!!! This has been an absolutely crazy month, with non-stop, back-to-back events, between commuting to the city twice a week for my internship, classes, Zeta stuff, Homecoming, and Clarissa visiting!! This weekend will actually be my only weekend that is completely off for another month, so I will be taking full advantage of it with… Continue reading On the Farm

Hamptons Round 2

I am so, so, soooo behind on blogging! After heading to the Hamptons with my mom before Easter, Lydia and I decided to head out again just before the end of school. It was a bit overcast and chilly, but that kept away any city folk who wanted to venture out to their beach houses… Continue reading Hamptons Round 2

Time for Tea

As I mentioned in my last post, I haven’t explored enough of Long Island. So, I set out with the usual crew to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. We all piled into my little bug and went east for our High Tea reservations.  The Arboretum is the former home of New York millionaire William Bayard Cutting,… Continue reading Time for Tea

Mini-Escape

Sometimes I forget that there is a whole island surrounding me- I often catch myself thinking of New York as just Hofstra and then NYC, with nothing in between. In reality, there are tons of things around me just waiting to be explored! Lydia and I have been trying to get out more and see… Continue reading Mini-Escape

On the Steps of The Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favorite places in New York. I have always loved art and going to museums, and living in a city full of celebrated art houses is a dream! This is my second trip to the Met this year, just because I love it so much! My next… Continue reading On the Steps of The Met

April 1st

There are so many things going on this month, and I wanted to take the time to sit down and reflect on this month and what it means. I’m turning the big 2-0 this month (that’s a little scary!), so in honor of my birthday here are a few things I’m grateful for, proud of,… Continue reading April 1st

El Centro and Central Park: Part 2

I’m finally getting around to finishing up my blog posts about our trip to Central Park last week! Now there will be a little bit of New York wedged in amongst my LA posts. I have always loved Central Park, and as touristy as it is sometimes I really love being able to escape into… Continue reading El Centro and Central Park: Part 2

El Centro and Central Park: Part 1

I never realized those two names were so similar until I typed out the title of this post! We have been blessed the past couple of days with beautiful weather here in New York, so I headed into the city Saturday with some of my best friends. We went to lunch at the cutest little… Continue reading El Centro and Central Park: Part 1
