The Children of the Sky


So the apartment hunting has come to a slow and it looks like I'll be commuting for a little while longer. It's been tough trying to stick to my budget and dealing with brokers who try to squeeze every penny out of you. Oh, New York City, you're not an easy city to live in. I've been talking to my friend Rob, who teaches in the Bronx and has taken my outfit pictures before, and it seems like we might be able to snatch up an apartment in East Harlem with 1-2 of his other friends. It's not too far north so the neighborhood should be pretty safe and it's only a single subway ride away from my office! I'm crossing my fingers like crazy that this one works out. Maybe I should cross my toes too...

Urban Outfitters Heels

When I was wearing this outfit, Jeremy and I took a trip to the nearby Shop Rite since I had to pick up some random groceries for a project at work. I have to say, I felt like I was 1950's housewife walking down those supermarket aisles with my heels and full skirt. Pretty sure if Mad Men had any Asian characters, I would have been first in line. ;)

On a completely different note, my vision is pretty non-existent these days because I haven't gotten my bangs trimmed in quite some time. I guess it's time for a trip to the hair salon!
