Hello Darlings!

8:00:00 AM

Hello darlings! I'm super excited to be writing my first blog post! I'm obsessed with the blogging world. Whether I'm reading blogs or writing posts for my other blog, I love every single thing about blogging. I'm excited for this new adventure and hope to create a fun and glam spot in the Internet world. Before I start, should I share some more deets about myself?

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.

  1. Hey Melissa! Life in New York must be full of adventures! Or is that something us peeps who have never been to NY automatically assume?

    Like you, my mom is my best friend. I actually named my business after her!

    Lexi is a real cutie! I have a dog (Buddy) that I love so much. Lately I've had the itch to extend my mini family by adopting a kitten. They're so cute, but I also know, as with all pets, they're a life long commitment, so I can't base my decision on how cute they are. :)

    Great first post Mel. Looking forward to reading more!


    1. Hi Tiffany!
