Drumroll Please




Notice something really different? 
Haircut? No. New handbag? No. Did you get taller? Well, I hope so (one more inch until 5' 8")! 
Okay, I am sure you are tired or guessing, so let's just get to it. Kudos to you if you noticed already!

I am so exited to announce that the new blog design just launched this week and I hope you love it as much as I do. I wanted to improve reader navigation and allow the new design to be brighter and chic. Also, the mobile version has been released for easy reading on-the-go!

While I am on the topic of great news it is a new year with a new pageant system. I am so excited to now hold the title of Teen Miss New York! I am counting down the months to this summer when I will compete at nationals and get to meet all of the other national royalty. I am thrilled to begin making appearances and to be part of such a great pageant family. Preparing for nationals is definitely a long process, but it is extremely rewarding and fun. May the reign begin!

Happiness and Haute Chocolate




I'm a very punctual person leaving me utterly lost without my calendar. My iPhone is like my personal assistant that is constantly reminding me what to do and where to go. I still enjoy writing certain things down though and my 100-day Happiness Planner is the perfect place to do so. Can we just discuss how gorgeous the color of this planner is? I'm very into aqua, so this is right up my alley. It is so cute, and so me. Thanks for the present Mo!

A Day in the Life


Even though you know I love to share my fun weekend adventures, during the week I still endure the typical life of the American teenager. This includes trying to decipher the life game while completing hours and hours of homework simultaneously. College prep school is something else, but I actually love the challenge. Today I thought I would switch it up and give you a brief glimpse of my average weekday routine.


I'm up and moving by six in the morning to get ready for school. I go through my unnecessarily drawn-out process of getting ready which honestly should not take so long. Mind you that I wear a uniform to school, so I really have no excuse here. I waste time by slowly drinking hot tea and just sitting in front of my vanity staring into space contemplating my thoughts. I finally get it somewhat together before grabbing something to eat and heading to escuela.

Bling Bling

Triple Layer Gold Necklace

Accessories literally make my life complete. Just think about how much of a lifesaver they are in any fashion crisis. On extremely lazy days, which isn't that often (I swear!), I can get away with a really basic girl outfit and messy ponytail, but I make sure that I bling it up with the perfect accessories. 

I've blogged about the Born Pretty Store before which has extremely cute jewelry, for the best prices with free shipping. Like I'm talking about under $5 prices! Of course I do love wearing high-end luxury jewelry, but having a few fun costume pieces are always good to have as well. Currently there is a 10% discount code "MRYT10" to make things even better. That is my kind of shopping. 

For the low prices, the jewelry is very good quality. I have sensitive skin which causes me to get irritated from certain metals, but I have luckily never had a problem with the jewelry from BPS. I'm obsessed with these three pieces that I picked out, especially the crown ring (pageant girl probs)!

Warby Parker//Spring 2016 Launch


Burroughs~Canton Blue


Alright, we're going to start off with a little health lesson. Today 6 in 10 people need glasses or contact lenses and I'm one of those fellow people. Sometimes I swear I can see well without them, but then I put my glasses on and everything becomes crystal clear versus doing that squinting at the board thing in class. Why not make your specs chic like any other accessory with trendy frames? Today is the big launch day releasing the Warby Parker Spring 2016 Collection, and everything is bolder and clearer than ever.

Styleart



On Sundays especially, you can find me lounging in the afternoon finishing school work. Currently there's heavy rain which is giving me yet another excuse to relax. When I'm not checking my phone every five seconds, I really enjoy reading a good book. I picked up The Untethered Soul, which I highly recommend to anyone who wants to find their inner self and de-clutter life. The book is a personal self-journey to help free yourself, from yourself. You know when you really want to do something, but you hold back out of fear? Well this book teaches you how to release the side of you that keeps you from succeeding and finding freedom.

Hello...It's Me



I'm back and better than ever! I am very sorry for the lack of posts, but I am currently going through a blog re-vamp and preparing all of the new post content. The winter break was a blast filled with lots of fun memories...and even a lot more school work (totally cringing at the thought of upcoming midterms). 

With the super cold weather that just hit, my recent favorite fashion obsession has been capes. They are a great to be practical for another layer, but the recent patterns and cuts are just fabulous. Here I wore a Alberta Ferretti cape on a beautiful afternoon in SoHo.

Wow, I'm still stuck on the fact though that it is 2016. New year, new you! There are so many goals that I plan on accomplishing this year and I'm more than ready. New Year's Resolution: Be the best possible version of myself in all aspects. What about you?
