Hi Everyone! With the end of the month approaching so very quickly, I have to say that September was the craziest month yet (I know, I feel like I say that every month too!). I thought it would be a great time to catch up on life with you all and fill you in on some of the exciting things I’ve got up to recently! September started out with a wonderful 25th Birthday followed quickly by a hectic New York Fashion Week! Obviously working at a fashion magazine means fashion month is a huge priority for us so there were a lot of long days and working weekends but it was such an enjoyable and eye opening experience! Then last weekend some of might have seen on snapchat (michaelabear1) that I had a flying trip to LA for the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party. I was literally only in LA for 26 hours but it was one of the coolest things I’ve done so far with Teen Vogue. I remember watching The Hills when Lauren and Whitney worked at the party and thinking it was the coolest thing in the world, never in my life did I think I would one day be there too!

Happy first official day of Autumn everyone! I could not be more excited for my favorite season to kick off! I literally dream of Autumn in New York and in my opinion, it’s when the city is the most magical! I know that sounds cheesy but walking around Central Park when the leaves are golden and seeing people start to put pumpkins on their front porches really makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. The nice thing about living here compared to Ireland, is the distinct seasons we have. With each season comes new wardrobe choices and a whole new set of things to do here in the city! This is my bucket list for Autumn in New York and I can’t wait to bring you guys along.

I don’t know about you guys, but with every change of season comes a new urge to give my wardrobe a makeover! Without a doubt Autumn is my all time favorite season for dressing. Every year at the end of Summer, I always buy myself a new pair of black boots, a winter coat and some sweaters. They’re what I call my style staples because I know for the next 6 months, I’ll be wearing them again and again which is why I do endless amounts of browsing online to try and find the perfect ones! I figure that I’m not the only one who likes to update their closet every once and a while so I thought I would share some of my favorite things that I’ve come across online in hopes of saving you hours of scrolling! Grab a cup of tea and get comfy and happy shopping!

Happy Hump Day Everyone! Sincere apologies for being M.I.A this week here on blog, as some of you might know from snapchat (michaelabear1), this past 7 days has been a crazy whirlwind for New York Fashion Week. It’s been a week of running around Manhattan in unsuitable shoes with two phones in my hand trying to keep on top of everything, but a fun one at that! There’s been so many amazing shows and but some of my highlights were the Kate Spade Presentation and the Rebecca Minkoff show which happened right in the middle of Soho (I got to interview her for Teen Vogue as well which was so much fun). This fashion week, I was lucky enough to get backstage access to a bunch of shows with Teen Vogue which was an experience in itself, so many people in such a tiny space with camera’s pointing in every direction, I don’t even know how the models can breath! But somehow they manage, all while looking like beautiful bean poles!
