Where I've Been | Life Update

Hello Everyone!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I last posted. Honestly I had no intention of taking of break - it just sort of happened. I've been wanting to post but figured a life update was the most appropriate thing to start with.

I'm definitely one of those people who feels like all of my posts need to be perfect - informative, captivating, and full of stunning imagery. That is an awesome goal but not always realistic. I'm hoping to start posting more often regardless of whether or not my content is perfect.

So...what have I been up to since early April? Lots! Back in the winter, Joe and I booked tons of spring/summer travel. I've already gone on a couple of our trips and they were probably the most tiring of the weekend trips. 

Our first trip was to Minnesota. We went the first weekend of May and visited a couple friend [who officiated our wedding!]. I used this trip to start my Weekend Warrior series on YouTube. This series will document my upcoming weekend trips. Our second trip was last weekend and we went to Disney World. Joe got me a GoPro for my birthday and we brought it [I got my gift a little early!]. We have SO much footage and the video might not come out for a bit. 

This weekend we're staying in town for my birthday [May 22]. I have plans with friends on Saturday and Joe on Sunday. I'll be documenting my birthday weekend and sharing it on my actual birthday next Tuesday!

In addition to our travels, I've been busy with work and just life. Joe has been working 60+ hours and it's been tough on us. Luckily our weekend trips are helping us escape reality and enjoy quality time with each other. 

I update most on Instagram so I highly recommend following along there in real time.

I promise more posts to come soon!

How To Start Your Body Positive Journey

Ok here we go - I'm NOT body positive. I'm not accepting of my own body. I struggle with self-confidence every single day. Back in January, I tried to rebrand my blog and Instagram to be body positive and support this movement. Then I kind of didn't post much. I went back to my old comfortable posts of New York stoops and beautiful flowers. 

I didn't start sharing these posts because honestly didn't know what to say. I'm barely starting my journey and I falsely felt like I couldn't write about something without being "perfect" or at my end goal. But that's exactly how I got where I am today. I've always had a black and white mentality. Either everything or nothing. 

Last week I posted a photo on Instagram. I was nervous to post it but I knew I wanted to post more about body positivity. I was also nervous because I was sharing a product and I didn't know how the brand would feel. But I did it! I was incredibly honest and shared how I was working towards body respect [a stepping stone to becoming body positive] and how you should take however long to get there. At first I got my standard response - friends saying something nice and encouraging. Then the brand reposted my photo and a flood of amazing comments came in. It made me realize that I need to start my body positive series here! And I'm starting out with a few tips for beginning your journey. 

Find People Who Look Like You: As someone who grew up buried in magazines, I didn't see a single curve. Curvy/plus size models were not a thing like they are today [well we are getting there]. Now it's easier to find women who like me by browsing Instagram [so many curvy fashion bloggers!] and sometimes even in magazines. 

Learn: Utilize resources like books and podcasts. I started my journey by listening to the Food Psych Podcast - I still listen to it by the way. There are also tons of great books. I recommend Body Respect and Health At Every Size.

Surround Yourself With Like-Minded Friends: When we spend all of our time with people who bash their bodies, we tend to do the same. Try to find friends who focus on other aspects of life.

Those are a few tips for starting out. I'm still very early in my journey. My motto for this chapter of my life should really be progress not perfection. I definitely plan to share more on this topic in the future!

How To Land Your Dream Job

Happy Wednesday!

If you've been following my career journey, you know that I changed fields and I'm really happy with where I landed. I've gone through some major struggles with pursuing something other than what I studied. But I did it. I can't imagine where I would be now if I hadn't made this change. 

Today I want to share a few tips I've learned after countless interviews [some good and some bad] and what specifically made a difference in getting me to my dream job.

1. Connect On LinkedIn: Seek out professionals in the job or field you want to be in. I recommend looking up other alumni from your university. Check out the companies they work for. Look at their career progression. Send them a message and see if you can connect over e-mail, phone, or even a coffee chat. 

2. Master Your Story: It takes some practice but the best thing you can do is learn the most efficient and effective way to share your story. Every interview I've ever had: tell me about your background. I learned to consolidate my story and emphasize the significant points. Practice with a friend or family member! It'll get easier explaining your background and how you became passionate about your chosen field.

3. Network: Networking has helped me out immensely. I landed my first professional job right after graduating from undergrad by networking months prior to graduation. When switching careers, I engaged with everyone I could find to learn more and look for potential opportunities. 

4. Be Unique: Figure out what makes you special. What unique experience do you bring to the table? How might your perspective and skills be different than the average candidate?

5. Always Be Nice: You are bound to deal with rejection. You'll inevitably be overlooked or forgotten about at some point in your job search. Do not let this detour you. Hiring teams aren't trying to be rude or inconsiderate; they just have a lot on their plate. Always be nice. Always be considerate. Say thank you. Be flexible. That may just make a difference. [BUT never let anyone walk all over you!]

6. Closed Mouths Don't Get Fed: Follow up. This is key. Don't expect a nice thank you note to result in an offer but always send an email indicating that you're grateful and express why you want the position. Maybe mention any gaps or address a weakness from your interview and how you can improve it. Then be respectful and wait a decent amount of time before checking in. Speaking up, at appropriate times, can make all the difference.

7. Stay Positive: Landing your dream job isn't easy. Be gentle with yourself and remind yourself that you are doing the best you can. There are tons of reasons why you may not get a particular opportunity [ahem internal hires]. Keep your chin up because your dream job is right around the corner.

Easter Brunch at Fell stone Manor

On Saturday, Joe and I attended the loveliest Easter brunch at Fell Stone Manor

Fell Stone Manor is tucked away in Hampton, New Jersey. They host weddings, offer farm to table dining and have chickens! 

This weekend they hosted a private Easter brunch in their barn. 

All the food was prepared by their executive Chef Becky Geisel. From pear and brie tarts to filet mignon tea sandwiches to sea salt caramel macaroons, this brunch was delectable.

Fatty Cakes provided cute little Easter cookies in a jar & White Girl Rose represented with their signature wine and cans of bubbly.

I loved all of the little details! The rustic vibes, teacups, and hay barrels. If Joe and I got married again, it would definitely be at Fell Stone Manor!

Thank you for the invite, Fell Stone Manor!

Things To Do In New York In The Spring

Let's face it: spring in New York won't be a warm one this year. We're already nearing the end of March and there is still some snow on the ground. 

Recently my in laws visited for a weekend. We had just experienced a snow storm and were forced to find more indoor activities. Luckily New York is filled with indoor options - from museums to Broadway shows. 

Here are my favorite things to do in spring:

Broadway Shows: You can't go wrong with a Broadway hit. We usually buy our tickets discounted on TodayTix. Joe and I also recently saw the off Broadway show: In & Of Itself [kind of a magic show but so much more]. It was incredible! They sell rush tickets every day at 6PM for $30 cash/ticket. 

One World Observatory: For an incredible view of the city, check out the One World Observatory. You can stay warm while seeing the city. I've also heard amazing things about the 9/11 museum downstairs.

Museums: My favorites are the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met), American Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa). 

Comedy & Improv Shows: Comedy Shows are always a fun option. We took my in laws to the Comedy Cellar. We also really like Caroline's On Broadway. For a more budget-friendly option, try an improv show at UCB (Amy Poehler's club!). 

Botanical Gardens: Both botanical gardens have beautiful flowers in the spring. The New York Botanical Garden [Bronx] has their indoor orchid show. The Brooklyn Botanical Garden has cherry blossoms at the end of April. 

Neighborhood Walks: Walking around always warms me up; just remember to bring a jacket. I love exploring new neighborhoods and getting some Instagram photos. My favorite neighborhoods to wonder around are the Upper East Side [my old home!], Greenwich Village, and Brooklyn Heights [also the Brooklyn Bridge]. I always make sure to get some stoop photos and visit cute coffee shops for warm up.

What are your favorite spring activities in New York?

My Favorite Restaurants in Jersey City

Over the weekend, Joe's parents visited us in Jersey City. We've been here for over six months now so  of course we wanted to bring them to some of our favorite restaurants. This made me think about the places we love to dine and I figured I'd share.

Razza: This was the first spot we took Joe's parents to--their pizza was named the best pizza in New York in New Jersey! Their brick oven pizza was great but their bread and butter really stole the show. The bread and butter are both house-made and perfect!

Taqueria Downtown: As California transplants, we can be picky when it comes to Mexican food. Taqueria Downtown is decent--we like the guac and tacos. This spot is no frills but upbeat. It's a small joint so it's usually packed but the service is quick. 

Left Bank Burger Bar: If you're looking for a casual spot for burgers and beer, this place is for you. We've taken both sets of our parents here and everyone has really enjoyed it. I'm pretty easy to please with burgers and get their bankrupt burger--basically a cheeseburger. Joe really likes their ahi burger. We hope to hit up their happy hour soon!

Brownstone Diner: Pancake lovers rejoice. Joe and I love this spot for stacks of pancakes on a snowy weekend morning. This diner has been around Jersey City for ages and offers tons of delightful breakfast options. Be prepared to wait a bit for your table though. 

Porta: Another pizza joint. Right by the Grove Street Path, you'll find this delicious pizzeria. I love the ambiance and their quality food.

Wonder Bagels: For my bagel lovers: Wonder Bagels is better than some of my New York staples. Their bagels are huge and fluffy. Joe also really likes their steak and egg breakfast burritos.

Bang Cookies: These cookies are so good and you can order them online! Free local delivery on orders of 4+.  

Any spots I should add to the list? I'd love some suggestions!

How To Change Careers Without Losing Your Mind

Last week I shared a post about finding your dream career. Long story short, I wasn't a fan of my career and switched fields in mid twenties. I went through a few things I did to help me find my new career. Once you've found your passion, you need a way to work towards it without losing your mind.  Hence my post today. 

One of my biggest obstacles was handling the transition. Now that I knew my end goal--what did I need to do to reach it? How could I support myself along the way? 

Learn To Handle Rejection: Since I didn't have experience in the field I wanted to enter, I had learn to accept rejection. Lots of rejection. I went on loads of interviews and was rejected. Over and over. As tough as it was, I learned to accept the rejection and move forward. I allowed myself to be upset and leaned on my support system. Once I dealt with the disappointment, I moved on. Whether that meant researching other companies or applying to more jobs that day, I encouraged myself to persevere. 

Support: Along with the rejection comes a need for a support system. Lean on friends, family, counselors, or whoever else for support. Pursuing a new career path isn't easy. Commend yourself for doing it and find others who will be there for you when it isn't going smoothly.

Write Down Your Fears: Changing careers comes with unknowns, which can make us fearful. Write down everything that is worrying you about switching gears. Then be proactive. Come up with solutions to ease your worries. For example: if you're worried about money, focus on how you will financially support yourself while switching careers. 

Self-Care: You know I had to include self-care, as I'm a huge proponent of it. Take time for yourself. Pamper yourself. Move. Nourish yourself; body and soul. 

Treat Interviews As Learning Experiences: One of the nice things about going on lots of interviews for similar jobs is you'll probably be asked the same questions. Write down questions that stumped you on the spot and spend some time writing out thoughtful answers. Also remember: you are interviewing these companies as much as they are interviewing you. Use this time to really learn about the day-to-day responsibilities and office culture. I wasn't always treated with respect during interviews. This taught a lot about companies I didn't want to work for. Use everything you learn to make informed decision moving forward. 

I hope these tips can be of use to you in your job search!

The Weekly Recap: February 23

Ah we've reached another Friday. This week has been an exciting one for me! 

• Joe and I enjoyed Sunday brunch at the Butcher's Daughter. I've been meaning to try it for ages and it did not disappoint--I got the weekend waffles & Joe got the avocado benedict. 
• With Monday off, I did a little pampering: eyelash perm & nails
• I started a new job and I LOVE it!
We experienced some warmer weather for part of the week

Weekend Plans:
Saturday: I'll be celebrating my girl, Stephany's birthday
Sunday: I want to see Blank Panther--everyone says it's amazing and MoviePass makes it so easy

Throwback Post
Eyelash Perm Experience: Since I got my lashes done this week, this post feels appropriate. My first visit was fall of 2016 [tested out before my wedding] & I shared my experience. This was my third time getting this service. I always love the way my lashes look after! Although Gigi's Yelp says she is closed, you can book an appointment here. The price has gone up for weekends [now $50, cash only] but if you go during the week, it's $40 [before 4:45PM].

How To Find Your Dream Career

Happy Hump Day! Isn't it wild that we're halfway through the week already?! Thank you, long weekend! 

I've been going through some [good] changes in my life recently and reflecting on how I got where I am. I've been meaning to start a career advice series for ages. I want to share what I'm going through as I change careers. 

If you didn't know, I fully changed career paths less than a year ago. I started my career in health-related research. I got my bachelor's degree, worked in research for two years, then got my master's degree in New York. During my master's, I started to realize that this wasn't the path for me. After my program concluded, I spent some time applying to jobs in the health field; honestly, I felt guilty so that's what I did. After a few months, I literally couldn't do it anymore. I was lying to myself and employers. I took some time to reflect and search for my next move. In this post, I want to share a few things I did to find my current field. 

1. Read: The moment I told my parents I wanted to switch careers, they ordered me this book. An updated edition of this book comes out every year and it's been around for a while now. The first half discusses getting a job and the second half helps you gain clarity on what you want to do. Do the exercises and make lists! I wrote all over my copy.

2. Meet With A Career Counselor: I realize this may not be feasible for everyone but if you can, do it! This is still something I still mention in job interviews when potential employers ask about my transition. I was fortunate to have just completed graduate school and my university has a great career center. I made an appointment with a counselor. We basically discussed what I'd done before, why I didn't like it, and some ideas of what I might like to do. She recommended a few jobs off the bat but also had me take an in depth assessment. We went over the results in a follow-up meeting and she gave me more career options then. My current field came from one of her suggestions! 

3. Browse Job Boards: If you have some ideas from the book and/or career counselor, I recommend scanning job boards. My favorite job boards are IndeedLinkedIn Jobs, and Google Jobs. Take a look at what jobs are out there, what are their titles, and what qualifications are required for them. You may not have all the skills you need already but you can certainly consider taking classes and/or doing an internship to gain experience.

4. Update Your Resume: Per my last tip, you need to have your qualifications in check to even be considered for your dream job. Look at the skills required and update your resume with any you have.   Tailor your resume to postings for particular jobs. There are tons of free resources that offer resume support. If you are a student, I highly recommend your career center. I remember taking my resume there during my time as an undergraduate. Also, local libraries [NYPL does!] tend to have free classes about resumes, job hunting, etc. 

5. Try Out A Job: Whether this be a taking on temporary work (what I did initially) or diving into a full time position, find a way to test the waters. I applied and interviewed for tons of jobs. The best fit happened to be temporary so I took it for the experience. I ended up learning way more than I expected and meeting some of my closest friends. 

These definitely aren't magical solutions but these are a few things I did and they helped me. I sincerely hope you find your dream job! I know I'm 10x happier today than I was a year ago.

5 Ways To Unwind At Night

We can all agree that sleep is important. We can probably also agree that we don't get enough of it. Whether it is staying up too late, waking up in the middle of the night, or spending too long on our phones in bed--it's easy not to get enough sleep. 

I have always struggled with falling asleep. Once I'm asleep, I'm ok but getting myself to sleep is an issue. I can remember staring up at the ceiling as a kid and just hoping to fall asleep soon. Over the years, I've found a few ways to unwind at night [assuming I actually follow through]. 

1. Stretching: This is my best way to relax at night. I danced growing up and would stretch every night before bed. I did it to get more flexible but it also really helps with sleep--your muscles release tension. I like to turn on calming music and stretch when I get the chance. 

2. Journaling: Growing up I also tried to keep a diary. I inevitably would stop writing in it and would give up on it. As an adult, I've found more structured journals. I'm currently working through a meditation journal from Lululemon. I'm also a big fan of the Five Minute Journal.

3. Tea: Sipping a nighttime tea [think yogi calming or sleepytime] can do wonders before bed.

4. Guided Meditation: I'm slowly getting into meditation and know it can be powerful for calming in the mind. I really like the Calm app for convenient guided meditation.

5. Essential Oils: I recently became a Young Living distributor. I was already into essential oils but I've been learning more about them recently and everything they are capable of. I like to diffuse lavender or stress away at night. I also rub thieves [for immunity] and lavender [for sleep support] on the bottoms of my feet before going to bed. 

What helps you unwind at night?

The Weekly Recap: February 17

Happy Saturday! Who else is excited about this three day weekend?! 

I am starting a new series on blog: The Weekly Recap. I've been wanting to share regular updates for a while now but couldn't decide how to share. I figure the best way is to recap my week every Friday. I initially planned to have this out yesterday, however, I was out late on Thursday, didn't get it up and figured I'd post this next week. I just came to the realization that I don't need to wait a whole week because I missed a self-imposed deadline and this can go up on Saturday this week!

For now, this will be my format but I may change out categories--we'll see how it goes. 

• I attended the Simply conference for the third year in a row last Saturday!
• Joe and I booked a trip to Disney World in May
• I became a Young Living distributor and all my essential oils came in this week [video coming soon]
• For Valentine's Day: we went to Bocca Di Bacco for dinner, it was really good. We also saw Kinky Boots on Broadway. 
• I've been getting into meditation recently--I tried out Inscape [in NYC], downloaded the Calm app, and started a Lululemon journal
• I caught up with Julia at the Grey Dog by Union Square
• I tried cupping for the first time and surprisingly didn't bruise as much as I thought I would
• I'm starting something new and exciting next week [I'll definitely share it in next week's recap]

Weekend Plans:
Saturday: Joe has to work but we're seeing a show at UCB at night
Sunday: TBD, I'd like to do brunch if it stops snowing or something else in Manhattan
Monday: Long weekends are the best! Joe has to work but I'll hit up a pilates class and get my nails done

Book of Mormon Review: Since we saw a show on Broadway this week, I started thinking about my show reviews. This was my second show review and is still my favorite show on Broadway. In fact, I saw it for a second time in December!

A Love Letter To My Husband

Happy Valentine's Day! Whether you are married, single, or somewhere in between--I hope you have a great day! This is our first married Valentine's Day, which is wild to me. I can't believe we said "I do" over six months ago and we're continuing in our journey of marriage. 

This year, we are celebrating with dinner and a Broadway show--it was so fun last year and we might make it a tradition!

The real reason to celebrate today is because we love each other. We fight for our love and relationship every single day. Life isn't easy but it's a lot easier together. Writing is one of my favorite ways to express myself so I decided to share a love letter to my husband..

Dear Joe, 

It has been a wild ride since I met in the summer of 2012. We were just kids then and no idea about the journey that lied ahead of us. I remember our first Valentine's Day vividly--I was still in SLO and you were up north. I drove up, after class, on Thursday so we could spend President's weekend together. I was supposed to spend the night at my parents and see you over the weekend but I desperately wanted to see you that day, on Valentine's Day. Even though it was late and I'd driven for hours, I drove on to see you. We made a heart-shaped pizza and drank wine. It was perfect. 

Every Valentine's Day since, we've done something special. The next year we took a sushi class and made chocolate soufles from scratch. In 2015, I surprised you and took you to Seattle for the weekend. Our next Valentine's was our first in New York! There was a snowstorm and we had breakfast in bed with our newly adopted fur baby, Nutmeg. Last year was our last Valentine's as an engaged couple and we saw Waitress on Broadway. This Valentine's will be special in its own way, as every other year has been. 

I cherish the memories I've made with you, each and every year. Our experiences have molded our relationship. I look back at the moments you've made me laugh or smile--I can't help but love you even more. You are truly one of the kindest people I've ever met. I can genuinely say that I've never met someone who dislikes you; that says so much about your character. 

You are a stand up guy. You've been there for me in my darkest times and for my greatest accomplishments. You left a comfortable life in California to struggle with me in New York. You helped me develop into the person I've become--a completely different person than I was when we first started dating in 2012. You've taught me how to be brave in difficult times. You've helped me become more confident and accept myself for who I am. You make me the best version of myself. 

Six years ago, I never would have expected to be where we are today. I cannot wait for all our adventures to come! 

I love you to the moon & back. 

Yours forever,

Galentine's Day Gift Guide

Galentine's Day: "Oh it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus frittatas." --Leslie Knope, Parks and Recreation

Can you tell I've been re-watching Parks & Rec recently?! I watched the entire series when it aired and decided to go through the whole show again this month.

Gift #2: "Ann, you beautiful tropical fish." [sub for friend's name!]

Gift #3: "I am super chill all the time!" 

Gift #4: "If I had to have a stripper name, it would be Equality."

Gift #7: "Slowing down is not really my jam." 

Gift #8: "Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?"

Gift #9: "I am a Goddess, a glorious female warrior." 

Gift #10: "Ann, you poetic and noble land-mermaid." [sub for friend's name!]
