I am currently in New York! It feels amazing to be reunited with my fraaands and have some actual time off.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend too! xo.

I’m going to New York on Tuesday! I’m so excited, and this post came right on schedule.
This week flew by in a blink, as most weeks seem to lately. Lots of work, lots of reading (yay!), lots of preparing to take time off next week. I am really looking forward to having a little break from working (even though that’s a bit scary, as a freelancer!) and seeing one of my besties. And of course I am excited to be summering in one of my favourite places on earth. There is nothing like summer in the city. Stay tuned on Instagram, if you’re curious! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. xo.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend too. xo.

Spending time with them makes me want to up my game both personally and professionally! I hope you have an inspired weekend too. xo.
