Not a Tourist Anymore

Yesterday I had such an eventful day.  My team and I had a Company BBQ at my boss' house in Hastings-on-Hudson.  I was a little worried about the commute, but I successfully made it!  I was able to sleep a little later, so my commute started at around 10am.  I took my regular express bus into Bryant Park (one of my favorite areas of the city btw) and then walked to Grand Central Station.  Of course I had to stop for my morning Starbucks on the way and got a tall iced Chai tea latte with whipped cream :)  My bus arrived a little early so I had a nice amount of extra time left to wait around the station, so I explored a little.  I then met up with some of my co-workers and we took a 40 minute Metro North train.  The BBQ was great and it was so nice getting to be with my co-workers out of the office and not having to be working that day.  I then successfully made the trip home as well.  I came home to some friends of my family in the backyard and pizza waiting for me.  All-in-all it was a nice Friday-- and now it's the weekend!  This weekend I'll be relaxing, hanging by the pool, and maybe some shopping.  What are your weekend plans?

My Week In Photos

Hello all,

So sorry I've been behind on blogging!  This internship has kept me so busy, and when I get home I am so exhausted!  But I've been trying to take advantage of being in the city everyday, and use my iPhone to capture some of my favorite moments.  Here are some of my favorite Instagram pictures I took this past week.  Enjoy!

On Tuesday, I went to get my nails done during lunch.   The color was Essie's Smooth Sailing- my favorite color.
I found this doodling on one of my dollar bills on Wednesday.  Needless to say, I had to take a picture before I got rid of it.
90 degrees on Thursday called for a cool top and great outfit to go with it. 
The heat Thursday also called for a nice Iced Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks. 
This is one of my favorite things about my office- the giant girl outside the women's restroom.  
Friday I had lunch out in front of the Flat Iron Building, right across from my office.

My daddy works only a few stops away from me, so he met me at my office on Friday and took the bus home with me. 
I had a very successful weekend: Friday I went to a Demi Lovato concert, Saturday I went to a party with family friends, and Sunday I went to the beach with my sister and our close friend.

Time Flies

On June 4th, 2010 I graduated from high school.  Today, two years later, I started my first day of my summer internship at an advertising agency in New York City.  Despite the bad weather, I think it was one of the best first days.  The internship orientation was from 9-12 and then we met with our supervisors.  I am working with Account Management, so I work on the relationship between our company and our clients.  The office is so nice and I even have my own desk!  The area around the building is also great, with a lot of different places to eat.  There are a bunch of great interns, and I am so excited to get to know them.  Its going to be a great ten weeks and I can't wait to get started!

Here's a picture of me at my graduation and before my internship this morning.

Updates soon!

Some of my favorites this week

Here are some of the things I've been obsessed with this week:

Maybelline Baby Lips in Quenched (in blue).  Its my new favorite lip balm for a day at the beach.

New sunglasses from Nordstrom BP (that were only $12!)

Enjoy your weekend!
