Photo shoot in NoLita, Manhattan

Hi guys!

Yesterday I went out with the sales team of Only Hearts to do a little lifestyle photo shoot. The model, Renee (@renwiththemane), was gorgeous! She knew exactly what to do and she was so much fun to work with. I also took some pictures myself for the Only Hearts’ Instagram account and they honestly turned out better than I expected! Everything she’s wearing on the pictures, except for the jeans, are pieces from Only Hearts.

We went to several photo-worthy spots in NoLita, Manhattan. This is also where Only Hearts’ flagship store is located (Mott st). I am so in love with this trendy area! It’s full of cute little restaurants, bakeries and boutiques and a must-see when you’re in New York.

I took all pictures below with my iPhone X! (The quality looks bad in this post but it improves when you click on the pictures)

 

P.S. Have you ever been to Little Cupcake Bakeshop? We went there to shoot some pictures and bought a cupcake as a prop. Eventually we split the cupcake and it was so good! I am definitely going back there. They have four locations in New York (Prince St, and 3 stores in Brooklyn). Definitely check it out when you get the chance!

P.P.S. This is not a sponsored post! I genuinely had a fun day shooting for Only Hearts and I am really excited about the bakeshop. Just trying to make sure you guys don’t miss out on anything while visiting NYC!

Update: First month in NYC

Fall banner

Hi everyone !

This is my 6th week in New York, which means I’ve been here for longer than a month! I experienced a lot in just a few weeks and I’m having the greatest time so far.

In the past 6 weeks I’ve met a lot of new, amazing people at different occasions and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be here. It’s truly wonderful. Also, happy Fall! This is one my favorite seasons of the year and I get to experience it in New York which makes it a 100 times better.

What’s it like to live in “The city that never sleeps”?

The lifestyle in the US, or New York in particular, is very different than what I’m used to. Life goes way faster and everyone always has somewhere to be. But even though everyone has such busy lives, New Yorkers are the kindest people I have ever met. They are incredibly helpful, whether you ask for help or not. If someone catches you looking around in confusion, they’ll walk up to you and offer their help. I’ve seen it happen several times and it keeps amazing me.

I’m working full-time at my internship and I spend my weekends working on school assignments, so it’s really hard to find some time for myself. Luckily, I sometimes get Friday’s off and I spend them wisely. Every Friday off I plan an exploring-day. I visit parks, different neighborhoods, tourist attractions, museums etc. A few weeks ago I visited the Museum of Modern Arts (MoMa) by myself, and I loved it! Even if you’re not really into art, it’s a must-see when you get the opportunity!

 

I also spent one day at the annual Coterie trade show at the Javits Convention Center, which was a great experience. I was representing Only Hearts with the sales team which was very fun and interesting.

I’m so sorry for not keeping this blog up to date, but I hope you can imagine how busy I’ve been the past few weeks. Please comment below and let me know how you’re all doing ! I miss catching up with you all :(
