Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend + Highlights of my favorite links from the week = on the blog today! I’m writing to you from New York City, yippee! I have today and Monday off of work for my school’s Mid-Winter Break (gotta love the teacher schedule!) so I flew to NYC last night with Allison. We’re in NY for Fashion Week but also to celebrate a friend’s birthday and have an all around raucous Galentine weekend (gal’s Valentine’s)! We’re staying at The Dream Downtown Hotel, which I’m so excited about because A) I’ve never stayed here before and B) I love a great hotel bed (The Dream’s don’t disappoint!). I’m completely looking forward to some of the meals we have planned – Tacombi, Morandi, Flex Mussels, and Freeman’s. I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine’s Day/President’s Weekend! Follow along on Instagram for NYC and Fashion Week fun!
