Happy Saturday Everyone! It’s my last weekend in New York before my trip home for Christmas so I’m very excited to partake in some festive activities today AND it just started snowing outside! If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that I had quite the exciting day yesterday where I got to bake cookies with Ed Sheeran and I have to admit it was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had. I’m a huge fan of Ed so it was awesome to get to meet him in real life and I have to say, he was so very sweet! He took the time to speak to everyone at the event and was kind enough to take pictures and sign our baking aprons! I literally was beaming ear to ear for the entire day afterwards! Anyways, here are my favorite things that I came across on the internet this week!

Happy Thursday Everyone! I’m VERY excited to share my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide with you guys today! Usually every year I leave all of my present shopping to the very last minute, but this year I planned out all of my gifts in time for Black Friday so I’m on top of my shopping game this year! It’s always hard to know what to buy certain people in your life, for me I find it particularly hard to buy for Cathal and my Dad which is why I love reading other people’s gift guides in hopes of spotting something they might like! MY gift guide this year is super simple, 10 things for girls and 9 things for guys across all age ranges!

Happy Hump Day Everyone! I’m settling back in the city after an amazing weekend in L.A. for the Teen Vogue Summit! Such a memorable experience but I couldn’t be more excited to be back in the city and make the most of the holiday festivities before I head home (only 9 days left!) There’s absolutely no better time to visit New York than the weeks leading up to Christmas. Starting in mid-November, the city gets a sparkly makeover and turns in to everything you imagine it to be. It seems that a lot of people are visiting NYC over the coming weeks so I wanted to share some of my favorite things to do in the city during the most magical time of the year!

Happy Hump Day everyone, I hope your week has been going well! It’s a little bit of a busy one for me as I head to L.A for four days tomorrow. I’ve been there a couple of times for work before but especially looking forward to this trip because I’ll be hosting a workshop at the Teen Vogue Summit with Aurora James of Brother Vellies, a very cool fashion brand here in the states that I was first introduced to after working at the CFDA awards last year. While I’ll be there mainly for work purposes, I’m excited to have one or two days to explore a little! We’re staying near Venice Beach, so if you have any great recommendations I would be delighted if you would send me a snap (michaelabear1) or DM me on Instagram to share them with me! I’m very excited to share todays blog post where I’m talking about a few ways that New York has changed me as a person. As the end of the year rapidly approaches, I really find myself reflecting on the past 2 and a half years and how every experience and challenge has impacted me!
