happy new year! a recap of 2010 :)

Happy New Year friends! I welcomed 2011 with both my high school and college friends in New York, which was a ton of fun. As exciting as 1/1/11 is, New Year's is also a time to celebrate the passing year. 2010 was full of tremendous experiences and life lessons learned. Here's a little recap of my year, if you'd like to see...

In January, I spent my first full month back in the U.S. after a semester in Europe, reunited with frozen yogurt & New York Restaurant Week, and started letting "my beat" build.

February was filled with little bursts of inspiration. I played shoe paparazzi and was inspired by all sorts of NYC related things, like the Soho House and a new HBO show.

In March, I went to brunch, showed you my bag, and had an amazing Spring Break trip to Buenos Aires, Argentina!!!

In April, I fell in love with Sylvia Plath, thrift shopping, and Crif Dogs... I also attended the Tribeca Film Festival (with my all-access "A" pass!) and celebrated my 21st!

May marked the end of junior year; I relaxed in Philadelphia and enjoyed a few cozy frozen yogurt & coffee shop trips.

In June, I moved to my West Village summer apartment, started my marketing internship at L'Oreal, visited the Brooklyn Flea, and read tons of Alice Munro.

July was crazy! I watched Prince Harry play polo, partied on the Kiehls float in the NYC Pride parade, and ate tons of yummy food, like crab.

In August, I moved into my Little Italy apartment (yes, lots of moving!), celebrated the end of summer with Vietnamese/Mexican food, Almodovar films, and had my first ever blog giveaway.

September was full of senior year celebration. I accepted L'Oreal's full-time offer, hung out in my new apartment, explored entrepreneurship, and had cupcakes.

October brought a Harvard trip, eccentric apartment pictures, another blog giveaway, and Halloween! (I was a cat)

November was relaxing & full of thanksgiving. I felt especially thankful for my girlfriends, my sister, and life's little lovely moments.

In December, I had apple sandwiches, met the Rent the Runway co-founders, and toasted my dear friends.

While 2009 was filled with travel and adventure, I grew even more in 2010 both personally and professionally. I'm so grateful for all of 2010's blessings! Excited to see what 2011 brings! :)

PS: Here's my full recap of 2009!

  1. Your 2010 was full of travels! Hopefully 2011 will have some adventures in store, too :) Buenos Aires is on my list of places to go...maybe in 2012!

  2. Wow! What a fun-filled year you've had. Hope 2011 is just as good. PS I will totally let you know when (not if!) I go to NYC. Need to get an insider's guide to food and culture. Unlike most Irish who go, I'm not going just for 'the shopping'!!

  3. how fabulous! i so enjoyed reading this. happy 2011!

  6. what a year you had! lots of fun and excitement. I hope 2011 will be just as amazing for you, and even more so! you know what? I'm sure that it WILL be! xoxo.

  7. Hey, it’s nice you want to tell your stories about your days in BA. I have to admit that I do believe the city is "the Paris of South America". It is the architecture, the way people look, street and building design, everything is European. Maybe not Paris, but I would definitely say Italy.
    Anyways, I remember when I travelled to BA, I decided it on a whim and headed to the big city. I also rented buenos aires apartments. Don’t worry if you don’t understand things and bureaucracy, friendly porteños will help you out and you will end up knowing all the secrets.
