Hi babes! As I’ve said before, this year, I got to go to New York Fashion Week. It was dreamy. We attended a few shows, a RewardStyle party, a Like to Know it rooftop party, some fun events, shopped with Topshop and Rag and Bone, and pretty much had a party the whole time. If you have been following me for a while, you know how much I love New York City and how often I am there. In fact, I grew up going to the city for dance every summer, I also had the amazing opportunity to live there last summer and intern with a fashion photographer. So, to be honest, I’m a pretty great travel guide when it comes to NYC, remember my NYC Travel Guide post? Well I’m gonna give you an even better one, so look out for that! Today I wanted to talk a little about the RewardStyle party and tell you more about Like to Know it.
The RewardStyle party was in the Lower East Side, which was fun because I haven’t explored that area very much. It was in a gorgeous penthouse, with quite a few levels as well as rooftop access. Everyone was super nice and inviting which was good, because I was slightly nervous and maybe even a little intimidated. I got to meet with tons of different bloggers and influencers, watch a virtual reality fashion show along side Vogue Editor and Chief, Anna Wintour, take lots of pictures, see a beautiful view of the entire city from the floor to ceiling windows as well as the rooftop. It sort of felt like a dream, hence the spin (my go to excitement move.. never grew out of that one and I never will). After the party we headed to the Like to Know.it Wall to take some pictures. You’ve probably seen me and a lot of other influencers post a liketoknow.it link in our Instagram posts. Well, I wanted to explain a little bit more about liketoknow.it. Like to know it is just a simpler way to shop my outfits from each post. Instead of having to always come to my blog in order to shop, Like to know it will send you a link directly to your email inbox to shop the things I post. So, all you have to do is sign up here, like my posts, and bam, you’ll have direct links to shop my outfits. It’s super easy and convenient. Give it a try and tell me what you think!
And for my little thought today, I think it is so important to stay true to yourself. As I learned this summer with Soul Escape, “Don’t edit yourself”. You are who you are for a reason, you are special and unique especially when at events where it would be easy to get caught up in the glamour, be stay true to who YOU ARE. Like me and my spins, yes people were watching and probably thinking I was acting too giddy and immature, but it’s who I am. Be genuine. People are drawn to someone who is confident in who they are. I just feel really blessed and really grateful that I was invited to these events and that I got to attend. I’m a big believer in making your dreams come true, and living the life you have always imagined. I’m a “dream big” kind of a girl. I try to go after the things I want with all my effort because, “Reach for the Moon and land somewhere along the stars” and “work hard, be nice to people” are my mottos. You can do ANYTHING you set your mind to, be yourself, believe you can achieve, and go after what you want!
I am so grateful for all of you, especially if you read this whole thing! Thank you.
