Thwarted


The weather is trying its best to be gloomy, but the happy fall colors are totally ruining its plans.

Special visitor


It may have been cold & raining, but a visit from our sweet California friend made our hearts warm & happy!

Box of sunshine!

So charming!! Some of my friends call me "Sunshine," and the mailman brought me this amazing gift box of sunshine things!!

Fall is in the air!


Last week my aunt came and we did our gorgeous fall adventure in the sky—it's a good time for the highline!

Sleep 101

Ok, let's go over this daylight savings thing one more time. I'm happy to take questions if anything is not clear...

Errand excitement


Was still basking in my post-vote glow when I discovered the glee-inducing gorgeousness at the grocery store.

The free and the brave


I was afraid to go because I didn't want to be a blind person navigating the confusing, crowded pit of angry chaos that is usually my polling situation. But, I braved the madness and some kind people helped me and it was fine!

Painting party time!


This weekend we had a party for making paintings to hang in our friends' new house and it was fun AND not a disaster!

Carpe Diem!

It's Halloween, people!

One of my favorite bosses

My favorite 8 year-old friend loves making books and I have found her to be a legitimately excellent art director.

She's all fluff


My last fall jacket tried to be classy, but this time I followed my heart and am pleased to report that I look like a big, bright, happy puffball.

My time has come.


We have officially entered the narrow window where it's socially acceptable to be a candy-eating rainbow unicorn in public.

Phew


I almost didn't get my unicorn latte because the shop was out of neon blue unicorn juice, but my dreams were saved when they were able to conjure up a radiant purple one instead.

Sorry, flu.

Now the proud owner of flu immunity and a super pretty red band-aid!

Treatment

One of my eye doctors knows that my new glasses have been an utter fiasco, so when she saw me back in the glasses place again yesterday she snuck in and slipped me a treat. ❤️

Odd pairing


I didn't believe that one of NYC's hippest handmade donut shops was in a carwash on the west side highway, but I went and indeed that is the situation.

Good fortune


There was only one frame in the glasses store that fit both my prescription and my face, and it was the one with the neon orange ice cream sandwich charm!

Friendly exchange

I'd never seen a subway train do a "Hello!" honk, but today the local and the express greeted each other and it was adorable.

Don't forget...

I see all this talk of sweater weather, but lo, let us also rejoice over the arrival of fluffy pajama pants season.

Bundled up


Let's go, apples—it's time to get your dumpling on!

Travel time!


Buh-bye, pretty city; see you soon, country weekend!

Resourcefulness


The underground coffee shop has an underground garden that compensates for its sparse greenery with an abundance of green paint.

But will there be a corn maze?


Looks like the bodega pumpkin patch is ready to harvest!

#adulting


*Goes to candy store. Gets cotton candy. Does not eat it for breakfast the next morning. Is proud of self.

So affordable!


I thought my camera needed a super expensive repair, but the dude looked at it for 30 seconds and flipped a switch, and all it cost was my dignity!

Efficiency


My optometrist sits right on top of the 6 train, but you know I walked all the way to the Q to pop in the bakery "on the way."

They were begging for faces.


"What's up, pudding cup?" said the cutest little puddings ever.

Reunited!


The "SEIZED" signs are down and the Swedish coffee shop is open again—my mocha's out of prison!

Coffee Ground Underground


New underground coffee shop in the hood! Except it's not new; it's just underground so I never saw it.

Boo for you!


I never bought a halloween card before, but as soon as sparkle bowtie ghost caught my eye I knew the time had come.

Good day to you as well.


A bee just LANDED ON MY FACE and I thought the world was going to end, but it didn't sting! I guess it only wanted to say hello?

#goals


It was just me and the attendant at the laundromat today, so if I closed my eyes I could pretend to be living the ultimate dream: possessing my own washer/dryer.

Yum, alliteration.

Sometimes we're friends that eat avocado toast together, but today we were much cuter and were breakfast buddies that met for bagels.

Not so mellow yellow


I thought this building was as yellow as you could get, but that park job has taken the yellowness of the situation to a whole new level.

Status Update


It is lovely outside and also I have a matcha latte with an alpaca on it.

Friend material.


Saw a woman on the street with a rainbow backpack that had wings and thought, "I wish I knew you so we could be friends forever."

Hope this doesn't make him hard.

My hood's Swedish coffee shop didn't pay its taxes, so it got seized by the government and my favorite iced mocha is probably doing hard time in prison.

Technology at its finest


When I ignore pinterest it sends me emails full of anthropomorphic pineapples; their charming algorithm has clearly got my heart figured out.

Coolest uncool thing ever.


Every time it rains I consider pretending to be a tourist because I see them and get poncho envy so bad.

Adorable Kindness


My favorite 7-year-old knew I would think her new toy was cute so she wrapped it and gave it to me to borrow.

Sweet Dreams


Last night I had a dream that the rainbow sparkle bakery accidentally delivered 800 cupcakes to my apartment and this morning I'm a little disappointed with reality.

You almost don't need sugar.


The lady who runs the new coffee shop is so incredibly sweet that you'd think the drinks are filled with sunshine, love, and happiness.

Chillin'

It's quite toasty and my air conditioner is quite dead, so if you need me I'll just be over here...

So charming


It was a bajillion degrees and stuffy in midtown, but I did manage to get one sweet little kiss on the cheek from a random bit of breeze.

My chariot has arrived!


The new Q train extension makes the commute to my eye doctors so much less terrible that an angel gets its wings every time I ride it.

Team huddle


A ton of trees just appeared on the sidewalk for a tree meeting; probably to talk about important tree stuff.

mmm...poison


Just discovered this questionable substance called a "frappuccino." It tastes entirely like chemicals, but, once you drink enough of it, the chemicals become oddly yummy.

All this time??


Just discovered a bakery five blocks from my apartment that sells rainbow glitter cupcakes. How did I not know??

BFFs


What's that, summer? You said you'd stay forever? No? Are you sure?

Sunshine & Sprinkles


Headed to the bakery because it's an "I'll enjoy the walk as much as the cookie" kind of summer day.
