In The Know – How I Stay on Top of Current Events


Growing up, I never paid attention to the news. I was always so concentrated on school, or sports, or my extracurricular activities that I felt I couldn’t keep up!

Over the past few years, my interest and work in journalism as well as my expanding worldview led me to realize that it is extremely important to know about what is going on in the world. When you read the news on a regular basis, not only can you carry on an intelligent conversation with others, but you start caring about more than just the small world that each of us lives in on a daily basis.

Luckily for us, these days there are a plethora of apps, newsletters, and services that make it so easy to keep up with current events! Here are a few of my favorites that I think you should definitely check out!

What’s Your Personality Type


Hello Everyone,

On Monday I attended orientation for my fall internship at a major news organization (more on that later).

The internship seems to be really well organized and structured, and one of the things I most enjoyed was the career development sessions. One thing we did was take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. This is a personality test that is designed to indicate psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. I was really fascinated by this process and the results, because I felt that they were surprisingly accurate!

I had never taken a personality test before, but was recently encouraged to because I have been doing a lot of soul searching and career development/goal setting in my own life. I think it is important that your passions align with your strengths, and so I was excited to find out what I may be more inclined to doing well and enjoying at the same time.

Labor Day – Last Call for Summer Dresses


It’s nearly labor day! Can you believe it? Where did the summer go?!

In honor of one last summer blowout, here’s a few super cute dresses from Maggy London that will take you to every occasion this weekend. Be sure to check out the video below for my summer wardrobe essentials. I’m especially in love with the white and lime green mini-dress featured in the video. The print looks like palm trees, and is absolutely adorable!

I’m headed to Montauk for a weekend of surf, sand, and dinners by the sea. What are your labor day plans? Who else is excited for the fall?!

Healthy Fuel – My Top Nutritious Snacks


After eight years in New York City as a model, I have learned a thing or two about nutrition. While I used to love unhealthy foods and thought that dieting meant restricting what I ate, I have realized that eating foods that are good for me makes me feel fuller, more satisfied, healthier, and more energized among so many other things!

I wish I had learned earlier in my life that healthy eating is a lifestyle choice that encompasses so much more than losing weight. I love being active and working out, challenging my brain through my schoolwork, writing, and internships, and running all over the city to castings, fittings, and jobs. I have to take care of myself in order for me to be on top of my game and feel my best.

A huge part of eating healthy, for me at least, comes down to always having a good option to choose when hunger strikes. That is why I like to pack lots of healthy snacks with me when I leave my apartment for the day. Here are a few of my faves.
