I wanted to share something personal on the blog with you guys. So, I'm sure of you noticed that I didn't post a blog post on Monday like I usually do. Well that is because I spent the day in New York City! How exciting!! If any of you follow me on Snapchat then you have seen some behind the scenes adventures.



Now, I am home and all caught up with sleep and I also had to run some errands. So, now I finally have some down time to write this out for you lovelies!



Many of you do not know that I have been in a relationship for about 4 years now with the man behind Lelondonchic and on Monday we had the opportunity to celebrate our crazy 4 years together.



We honestly went with the idea of winging it which I always think is a bad idea. Trust me my feet paid the ultimate price! We had such an adventurous day and I got to do things I have never done before!



We took a 5am bus to NYC which would have put us in the city around 9am...we didn't get there until after 10! Normally I wouldn't have a problem except I was meeting my friend Ingrid from Inthegrids. It sucked that we couldn't hangout more but we are already making plans for my next visit!



Ingrid, le boyfriend and I ended up on the subway and it was my first time ever taking the subway in NYC! It is a lot harder than DC I will tell you that for  sure. After Ingrid left le boyfriend and I found ourseves in Koreatown! Another place that I always wanted to visit checked off my list.



We ate at this Korean Restaurant called 더큰집 ( Kunjip ) and we ordered Raboki! Which was the best thing in the world and it was such a good portion we couldn't finish it! When we go back again next month we are eating here again!



After our food adventure we walked around for a bit and did some shopping. Do you guys have any idea how massive the H&M and Forever 21's are there?!? Almost 4 floors!! If not 4 floors! Crazy!



I did hate the fact that the Starbucks bathrooms there were so gross I almost threw up. So different from DC!



We walked to Times Square, took so many photos, ate ice-cream and just really enjoyed each-others company that day. I would do it all again.



To this day I am still immensely happy in my relationship even when he pisses me off but no relationship is perfect.



Later Babes!

News: Wow, how long has it been since I have written one? Well here is a bit of a 'catch up ' in a nutshell. I attended New York Fashion Week  for the first time ever and I loved it. After that I got sick for about 3 days. I thought that was funny but I guess my body needed some time to recover. I have been slacking when it comes to my blog and my instagram as well BUT on the bright side I did finally hit 1k! I am thinking about hosting a little giveaway soon!



Plans: I am actually planning on going to New York again tomorrow! Going to be playing tourist and celebrating something quite special but I do not want to give it away just yet! All I am going to say about that is stay tuned! If you lovelies have any suggestions on places to go and eat please let me know!



Shopping: I have done a little shopping but I will not be sharing what I recently got because that will be coming up on ' Lelondonchic ' soon! Man, I have so many surprises for you guys! I must love you alot.



Watched: Netflix removed my all time favourite show " Melissa&Joey " now I am forced to watch something else on those days where I do not know what to watch! So, I have decided to watch all 10 seasons of the show " Friends "! Nothing will replace my love for " Melissa&Joey ". I wonder if I can petition to get it back on Netflix!

I have been blogging for a while now ( almost 2 years ). I actually started on Wix.com couldn't for the life of me get it to cooperate with me ( plus I kept getting hacked ). I then started completely over on Wordpress.com and enjoyed how simple it was. It gave me everything I needed to start over without a hassle. When I wanted to be able to really express my creativity I decided that self hosting was the way to go. I didn't have guidelines and I could really make my blog my creative outlet.



Many people think that bloggers live this glamorous lives and that it is easy for bloggers to get sponsorship or invited to events ( parties ) or that blogging isn't just a "job".



Want some insight into the life of a blogger!?









Know Your Worth




________



There are brands that will constantly reach out and ask you to work for free. Sounds good right? Exchanges of goods for service, just for a bit of recognition. I would say if you are just starting out that will sound amazing but if you have much of a following I will definitely say Don't Be Blinded By Free Products! Sometimes it is okay to help you get your name out there. Always saying yes to free items doesn't pay the bills.










Consistency Is Key




________



This is rather important for your followers to come back and read your content for a reason. Well because they like it and obviously want more. One of the best ways to grow your platform is to constantly create, produce and develop more content!











Hard Work Makes The Dream Work




________



Whoever said blogging is easy? I can confirm that it is not. It is important to start blogging NOT thinking you will make it big overnight. That wont help you succeed. Go into blogging because you are passionate about it and you love creating content. The work is hard but if you work hard you will constantly be improving. It takes time to grow your blog! You will spend years investing time and money into it before you really see anything. When you get there it is so satisfying!











Social Media




________



We are living in a digital age and Social Media is huge. Being a blogger you are constantly " working ". Yes, all the events and the parties seem fun and trust me they are with open bars but you are still working. Sharing on your Social Media outlets and recapping on your blog. You always aim for that perfect photo!











Down Days




________



There are days when I though I should have given up blogging. All of my free time goes towards my blog. Finding locations, planning outfits and meeting collaborations deadlines. There are also days when I don't feel like creating any content and I feel stress free. But then I remember how much I love blogging and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. Having down days are normal in my book. Perfectly normal...











Community




________



When you see community you automatically think " Blogger Babes ". I have made some actually genuine friendships since I started blogging. Even though my first ever event was awkward. Everyday though it gets better and I am able to network even better.











Parties & Partnerships




________



I could def say that there is some glam behind all the hard work. I think if I never started blogging I wouldn't have built connections with certain brands. My favorite events are with open bars!
















Places




________



I can say the industry sure is creative. Party in a warehouse? Yes, please. Gone shopping before or after store closing? Check and check! Some of the coolest things have happened to me since I started blogging.











The People You'll Meet




________



One of the things I cherish the most are the people I have met blogging. I have met some of the most amazing hardworking individuals. Blogging is so rewarding.






Interested in blogging?! What are you waiting for!? Start blogging already! You won't be disappointed!

With Fall right around the corner...technically the first official day of Fall is tomorrow! I was in dire need of some new dark lipsticks. I always tend to go to stores needing one thing but end up walking out with things I want. For example these awesome ' WetnWild ' Lipsticks.

Finally got my non manicured hands on a Western Belt

________






I have been really obsessing hard over Lace-Up Tops and I personally think that they are going to be my demise! Along with Lace-Up Bodysuits but that is a whole other topic. 

I got this particular Lace-Up Top from H&M and I think it is safe to say that I have been in love with this top since I got it. Can you overuse a word? I feel like I say love a lot...

Just kidding I know you can!

You know when you love a certain item you get it in other colours? That's how I feel about this particular top. I think I have to invest in all of the colours. I already have this black and white striped one and the white one. Dare I say that I actually want the blush pink one as well along with the plain black. I no longer hate pink...but I could cannot do like bright ass pink. I shall be sticking to blush only.

Okay, enough about this top and how amazing it is. Let me talk about these jeans which are also from H&M. I didn't really get into a review about them though and seeing though I kinda wore them back to back. I thought I should give you guys some indication of how pretty good there are.

The reason why I said pretty good is because of the stretch. I love H&M and the quality of their clothing BUT I hate how small the sizes run! Makes me feel bigger than I actually am which isn't cool. I think they they need to be more considerate to women who have curves.

Adding the Western Belt was the icing on the cake I guess you can say. I got this beaut from Yoins.com and I was a little surprised by the quality of the belt. I thought after  rigorous day being worn it was going to snap but the belt held its own. 

Kudos belt kudos. 

I felt like my outfit wasn't complete without my signature item aka my Fedora. This one was the perfect accessory to this look. I cannot wait to pair these 2 together again. 

OH, before I forget I am selling a lot of my used and brand new items on my storenvy shop! Everything is $25 and below! You guys can check that out here!

Later Babes!

* Side note: I am giving up my love for Forever 21 when it comes to clothing. I went in there the other day and was surrounded by nothing but Floral prints and Boho inspired clothing. How depressing! *
