Friday Faves 8.12 + Update

It's been a while since I've really updated you all on what I'm doing, so I figured the end of summer was a good time to do so. I head back to the city in two weeks (😍) to begin my junior year of college at FIT. I swear I was a freshman, like, yesterday. In case you didn't see on Twitter, I'm interning with Rebecca Minkoff this Fall semester and I'm THRILLED. Thank you so much to everyone who congratulated me. All summer I was searching for internships, sending my resume to different companies almost everyday, and finally I found out I had gotten my first choice, Rebecca Minkoff!

In other Twitter related news, I have a few people asking me to send out some Gold Dime stickers. Want one for yourself? Fill out this form and I will do my best to get them out ASAP! If you're a college student I suggest giving me your school address incase you go back before I send them.

In addition to my internship I'm excited to have some old Oneonta friends coming to FIT this fall. At Oneonta they have a 3+1 program (three years there, one at FIT), so some of my fashion friends who are ready for their one year in the city are coming! I can't wait to show them the best brunch places and most importantly catch up and hang out with them. Also!!! My blogging/CF bff Bethany might be moving to the city real soon, I can't wait to do photoshoots with her borderline everyday! Check out her fab blog here, I'm obsessed with the layout of it.

As for living space, I'm in the same dorm as last semester in good ol' Chelsea, but unfortunately I'm on the first floor of the 15 story building. So if you enjoyed my city skyline view on Snapchat, I'm very sorry I cannot do that anymore. On the plus side I never have to wait for an elevator and moving in will be a breeze 😎

What day do you go back to school?
Let's get on with the favorites.

Popsugar sent me this Must Have Box to try out and I'm in love with this month's box. It includes Emoji napkin coasters (can't wait to use these in my dorm), a linen skinny scarf, a Pineapple Pintrill pin, brow highlight pencil, chips (not pictured because I ate them, YUM), Sachajuan Hair in the Sun, and a super cute blow-up Swan that holds your drinks in the pool! Read more about them here. I'm seriously loving the Sachajuan Hair creme - it gives my hair protection from UV Rays but also gives a great beachy texture; also smells like candy! 
Want to try these boxes for yourself? Use coupon code 'SHOP5' for $5 off, it never expires!

Like I mentioned in my last Friday Faves, I'm really loving perfumes lately. I truly love musky scents, and this one is the perfect mix of musky and feminine. This is the rollerball version of the full size, but what I love about it is that it sprays instead of rolls. I feel like my rollerballs fade after a while, but this one doesn't. It has notes of balsam, birchwood, suede, jasmine, and black amber. I'm definitely thinking of buying the full size soon!

I don't use an agenda during the summer - I use a printable I made for myself that goes week by week. I have been beginning to organize and pack away things for school lately and pulled out my old agenda. The spirals were all bent and it would barely open, so I made the executive decision to get a new one. I never keep an agenda for a full year - more like one semester then I get bored. I've had a Lilly one, Kate Spade, then I just started getting cheap, cute ones at Target because I realized how easily I get sick of them. That's where I found this guy! It's no surprise marble is super trendy right now, but I love the color of this one. It also came in a pink shade! Super excited to dive into a new agenda for the Fall semester.

It's no surprise that I adore these bracelets from Madewell... I literally wear them everyday no matter the outfit. I love them because they're a cute pop of color and detail but still neutral colors. I also love them paired with my Pura Vida Bracelets ('Golddime10' for 10% off), and if Madewell doesn't make more of these I want some of the seed bead bracelets from PV. Basically, I love wearing these because they add a little bit of summer vibes to my outfits.

Don't forget to fill out the sticker form! xo.


  1. That agenda is super cute! So exciting that your friend might be moving closer to you!
