MY LIFE | February In A Nutshell

Last semester, I blogged about my NYC experiences week-by-week. This time around, I definitely haven't found time to do that. Instead, I'll be rounding up my adventures from the entire month and putting them into a post like this one. Fair warning, these will mostly be of food and/or random cool things that I stumbled upon.

ON STAGE | Something Rotten!

Image via Facebook
A new musical comedy is coming to Broadway - Something Rotten! is heading to the St. James Theater this spring, with previews starting March 23rd and its official opening set for April 22nd.

Description from

Set in the 1590s, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rockstar known as “The Bard.” When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theater involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical. But amidst the scandalous excitement of opening night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self...and all that jazz.

FASHION | NYFW: Eckhaus Latta

Another cool show I checked out during NYFW: Eckhaus Latta. It was particularly unique because of its choice of models and live sound elements (ft. a girl hitting a wall with a hammer). This line is the creation of Mike Ekhaus and Zoe Latta.

FASHION | NYFW: Tommy Hilfiger

The highlight of my New York Fashion Week experience was definitely the Tommy Hilfiger Fall 2015 show at the Seventh Regiment Armory on Park Avenue. Not only did I get to see all the backstage chaos, but I also got to interview the legendary designer himself. I spoke with Tommy Hilfiger for NY1 News and it was pretty much amazing...

Another fun NY1 shoot: a preview of It Shoulda Been You, a new musical comedy coming to Broadway!
The show's all star cast includes Tyne Daly, Harriet Harris, Sierra Boggess and David Burtka.

FASHION | NYFW: Monique Lhuillier

Image via Facebook
I was super excited to get to kick off my first New York Fashion Week experience with a show full of stunning gowns. I covered the Monique Lhuillier show with NY1 News and it was really cool to be a part of all the chaos that goes on before/during/after the show.

The show had an interesting set-up, with seating only on one side of the runway.

EVENT | NBA All Star Game

Valentine's Day weekend sure was bumpin' in NYC. Not only was fashion week in full swing, but it was also NBA All Star Weekend. On Sunday, February 15th, I was very lucky to snag a spot as an audience member for the highly anticipated half-time show during the All Star Game at Madison Square Garden.

EVENT | Emily Ratajkowski, Gigi Hadid & Kendall Jenner @ Bookmarc NYC

If anyone can draw a crowd, it's these three ladies. Emily Ratajkowski, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner made an appearance at the Bookmarc store in NYC on Valentine's Day to sign copies of LOVE Magazine's Issue #13.

For a recent photojournalism class assignment, I strolled around NYC's vibrant Chinatown to snap some shots of the food, street and culture. Chinese New Year is right around the corner, so the neighborhood seemed to be buzzing more than usual. Anyways, I just thought I'd share some of my photos from my adventure!

FASHION | Whitney Eve Style

It's not every day that you get a DM on Twitter from Whitney Port. A few weeks ago, that happened and had me like:

I was the winner of her giveaway in celebration of the launch of her new blog (!)

It felt like Christmas when the Whitney Eve package came in the mail!

Hailey Baldwin has been making quite the name for herself in the fashion industry. Whether on the runway or via Instagram, the 18-year-old stunner knows how to work it. She is the new face of Topshop's spring denim collection and she is killing it. Seriously, look at her bod.
