Over a month ago now, on the day of my senior week boat cruise, I went to the Museum of Fine Arts with some friends to see the Hokusai exhibit. (If you're in Boston before August 9th, I highly recomend checking it out!)
(Endless apologies for the quality of these photos--I wasn't originally planning on taking photos and only had about ten minutes before I had to go meet my friends!)

Ever since I failed the driver's test eye exam and could no longer deny that I needed glasses, I've been a bit disgruntled with my eyes. (Carrots are my favorite, so I believed my eyesight would be perfect!) But perhaps more annoying than having poor eyesight is shopping for glasses. They're just so expensive, and for things that might break at any time!
My first pair, and my current pair, served me well for six years--outside of the fact that now the prescription is wrong. While I could have put new lenses in my old frames, I need something new. And something cheaper.
Step in Warby Parker. I discovered this brand through the blogosphere, when reviews of their Home Try On started popping up left and right. So I put in my order and sat back to away my tester frames. It was only after I ordered my box that I realized there's a brick-and-mortar Warby Parker on Newbury Street in Boston, but I have to say that getting a box in the mail reminded me of when I used to get Ipsy and Birchbox!

There are endless ways to wear cocktail dresses. Besides the obvious (a wedding or birthday party), try dressing up and heading to a new exhibit opening at your local museum or throw a dinner party at your apartment. (If you're in need of any other variety of evening dress, check out Sherry London's selection of elegant prom gowns or stunning bridesmaid dresses--or head to their sale section!) See some of my favorites below:
|I'm really loving this white empire waist gown from the sale section|

This past weekend, my parents and I went to the Cape for a biking-relaxation mini vacation. This trip actually came just after a long-weekend getaway with my roomates to Maine--full posts on both of these amazing trips will be coming soon!
After biking just outside Provincetown, my parents and I decided to explore the town itself. Despite going to the Cape my whole life (my grandparents live there), I've actually never been to the town at the end of the penninsula! I knew I wanted to look halfway decent, despite having biked a rather hill-filled, windy trail in the morning.

This morning I start my post-grad internship. It's one I'm immensely excited about, but I still have that little voice in the back of my head going: "you may have an internship, but you don't have a job." It's a real struggle to enjoy the moment and take this post-graduation time to appreciate myself and figure out where I want to go (suggestions given to me by already-graduated friends who took several months to get full-time jobs).
In light of that, here are five things I want to remember during my few months at this internship. I love the idea of positivity and affirmations, and hope others find these thoughts empowering.
