A stroll down the banks of the Old Raritan with Parth, my brother from Chi Psi, fresh off his takeover of the Rutgers Instagram!
Had brunch at The Dandelion Pub yesterday and it was fantastic! A member of the Stephen Starr restaurants (which includes on of my favorites, Talula’s Garden) is a British pub nestled in the heart of Philadelphia.
I’m writing to you from my new apartment! Minus living essentials like floor lamps, a dining set, and anything to sit on or store clothes in, I guess you can say that I’m full-fledged adult now. I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog with a personal post, but I especially wanted to reach out to my fellow medical students with this one.
I think I’m still having a hard time adjusting to M2 year. I’m still grappling with the notion that others look up to me as a role model and ask me for advice when I’m just trying to do the right thing for me. It’s scary, it’s intimidating, but it’s inevitable. The “sophomore” year of any point in your education is tough. You’re no longer the baby, but you’re also asked to grow up quickly.
Hey everyone, I have some really exciting news! I’m partnering with JORD Watches for their fall campaign!
I started my Instagram and this blog a few years ago simply as a creative outlet to counter the rigor and demands of medical school. Never did I think that I’d have the opportunity to be working with a company in this capacity!
Even though this post is sponsored by JORD Wood Watches, I only want to work with brands whose products I admire and respect. I’ve seen JORD’s timepieces here and there and secretly had my eye on one for a while… and now I can say I’m a proud owner of a piece from the Frankie series! It’s perfect for the fall and every OOTD you can think of.
If you’d like to get your hands on one, I’m also including a giveaway link (click here to enter)! Winners get $75 off their watch, and everyone gets $20 off just for signing up! The contest will close November 27th at 11:59pm. Both the $75 and the $20 codes will expire on January 1st, 2017.
Being a huge advocate of the #TreatYoSelf movement, I would highly encourage you to look at their collection, especially since the holidays are rolling around. Who knows, I might even treat myself to another one once I finish Step 1 😉 Positive reinforcement.
If you end up getting one, let me know in the comments or hop over to my Instagram page! Happy shopping, and to my fellow students, happy studying!

With autumn in full swing and the temperature dropping (except for this past week), it’s the perfect time to make what I consider a staple for a chilly fall day – a hearty bowl of stew.
School will always be the reason that I never post on time! Last weekend, I had the opportunity to go to the New York Coffee Festival with a group of friends and it was super fun. We had a chance to learn about different types of roasts, beans, and even upcycled products made of coffee. Take a peak at some of my favorite shots below:
- How would you describe your style? – I would describe my style as very authentically “me”. I wouldn’t say I fit into one category. I love dressing up and I love having fun picking out my outfits and trying new things. Really, I just go with what I like and feel comfortable in, I don’t pay much attention to other’s opinions when it comes to my clothes. Clothes bring me a lot of happiness, and really my style goal is just to wear things that make me feel the most like my best self.
- What are your favorite brands? – My favorite brands currently are Abercrombie, J. Crew, and Express though I get most of my professional clothes from Calvin Klein. As far as shoes go, I love Steve Madden. Also, I’m kind of obsessed with Old Navy for basic things like t-shirts and tanks; they always have really good sales!
- Do you have any style tips you want to share? -Fashion and style are so subjective, but be yourself, love what you’re wearing, and do so with confidence. Also, details matter, little accessories can really make all the difference. Oh! And LIPSTICK!
- What has been your biggest style mistake? – The biggest style mistake I’ve made (and still currently make) is wearing ridiculously uncomfortable shoes because I really like the way they look. I’m obsessed with shoes and have more pairs than I’d like to admit, but my feet are not super thrilled with most of my choices. With all the blisters I constantly have, it’s safe to say a career as a foot model is definitely not in the cards for me.
Shirt & Skirt: Abercrombie
