My name is Melissa and I live in New York City now but I'm originally from Upstate New York. I moved to NYC for law school and I just never left. (No, I'm not a lawyer. Long story there....)
After writing a wedding blog for the last 3 years, I really wanted to expand and share my thoughts on a wider range of topics. I'm obsessed with makeup, beauty, fitness, reading, and DIY projects. (I love me a good flea market!) And thanks to my student loans, I've learned a thing or two about budgeting and trying to achieve debt free living. (It's hard work!) Why not share my adventures with you all?
Some fun facts about me...
- I'm 5'9 and usually tower over people when I wear heels. (I definitely have my moments of wishing I were 5'5)
- I love my wine! Who doesn't? Pinot grigio is my all time fave but I drink pinot noir when I'm trying to be "healthy". Wine is made of grapes, right?
- I try to work out 5 days per week. I love to eat good food and drink good wine so it's important for me to get my workouts in! (Cue me eating pizza....)
- I am a total jeans and t-shirt girl. Since moving to NYC, I definitely glam it up, but if I had to choose a fave outfit....jeans and t-shirts are my go-to. Oh and don't forget flip flops. Flip flops are a must!
- I adopted my kitten Lexi about 8 months again and she's the best cat ever. She's super sweet and lovable. Take a look for yourself......
- I'm obsessed with Bravo reality shows. Housewives of Orange County is my favorite. I want to be friends with Vicki and Tamra. I just don't want to get on their bad side...:)
- I'm a Type-A personality and live with my iPhone in one hand and my latte in the other. (Yes, my mother yells at me about always being on my phone. )
- Last by not least, my Mom is my best friend. We chat multiple times of day and she's the best person for advice, laughs, and everything in between.
