Hi. My name is Hallie. I’m 5’2″ on my good days. My feet dangle when I sit on chairs, subway seats, and toilet seats (I know…tmi). I choose food at the grocery store, based on the shelves I can reach…which isn’t many. When it comes to clothing, it’s a greater challenge.
April showers finally brought May flowers, as promised. While I wish I had a lovely garden in my backyard, or even just a backyard for that matter, I don’t. Living in NYC means highrises and apartment living, so I borrow Central Park, and call it my own backyard from time to time. It does feel that way, for as much time as we spend there. This past weekend was no different.
The sun is shining, and the tulips are in full bloom. People are out and about, and I absolutely love it. Is there anything better? The holiday weekend in NYC felt nothing short of fabulous.There’s just something about this time of year that makes me feel much more alive.
Get it? Got it? Good! I’m talking about some school girl sass. You know that buttoned up, crisp, clean look? The look resembles a uniform, but when paired together correctly, you can create a killer style that’s oh-so-chic.
How many sequined and beaded dresses do you stash into your closet after the holidays? How many fancy dresses do you purchase for weddings, and toss to the side, just one hot second after the event is over? I get it. I’ve been there. It makes sense, right? When will you ever wear a sequined or beaded dress on a typical day, or evening out?
Queen of Hearts seemed to be my theme for the weekend. The reasons you ask? There are two, so I’ll share. This weekend was frigid in NYC. I would have loved nothing more than to stay curled up in my pjs, but we somehow managed to pack the weekend of projects and activities. Being a couch potato is basically kryptonite for me. I go stir crazy, get cranky, and it basically spirals out of control, until Grant is ready to launch me out of the window (#truth).
This past weekend was TOASTY in NYC…just the way I like it. Speaking of hot, let’s add a bit of edge to your summer wardrobe, shall we? Lovely! I’m so glad you agree.
This past weekend, the sun finally came out to play in NYC, and we celebrated Mother’s Day. My mom lives out of state, and unfortunately we didn’t get to spend the holiday together. While I miss her everyday, this weekend got me thinking about the female figures in my life.

Fitness is a huge part of my daily routine. I recently began exploring new fitness classes, though the incredible program, ClassPass. For a monthly fee, ClassPass allows members to explore new fitness studios thoughout the city.
I always pack my bag for my busy days which include running to work, fitness classes, and post work events or parties. Here are several of my must-have products I keep in my gym bag. I hope you’ll give these a try. Feel free to share a few of your own favorite products with us as well.
