Saturday Night out in Harlem

My fiance and I decided to meet some friends in Harlem for some drinks and dancing. The couple lives on the Upper West Side and doesn’t go out in Harlem much. We thought the best way to spend our night was to start with perfectly crafted cocktails at 67 Orange, then take a short cab […]


A weekend in Philly

Tyler and I left NYC in the worst weather imaginable Friday night. Ok, maybe I’m being a bit dramatic, but it really was terrible. We were caught in the storm without umbrellas carrying champagne, a suitcase and giant backpack.  That didn’t keep us from jumping on the bus to meet our friends in Philly. Congratulatory […]


Never ending brunch in Harlem

There’s something special about Sunday brunch. Sitting with a group of friends, laughing, talking passionately about world issues, eating and of course, drinking. We had a fantastic brunch yesterday at 5 And Diamond in Harlem. I ordered pancakes with fried chicken and it was divine. The chicken was perfectly crisp on the outside and moist […]


An elaborate tea party

Somehow the universe brought me the most delightful of friends. I say all the time how lucky I am to be surrounded by the beautiful people who are a part of my life, and this just proves it. My friends secretly planned an elaborate tea party over the course of two months just for me! […]


A weekend by the lake in New Hampshire

A little weekend getaway in the woods is just what every New Yorker everyone needs. My boyfriend and I drove up to New London, NH recently for a family weekend and to celebrate a few wonderful events and accomplishments. We stayed at a country inn by Pleasant Lake, and it was just what I needed. The lake was […]


Abby’s intimate birthday

A cold rainy storm ruined the big rooftop extravaganza we had planned for Abby’s birthday. We were ready to repeat last year’s fun fest when mother nature defied us once again. After much consideration, Abby didnt cancel the party, but decided to have something much more intimate with fewer friends. So, I smacked on my […]


Picnic in Central Park

It’s spring time in New York City! Finally, we can frolic with our friends with no worries. Well, no worries of freezing to death is what I mean. We also have the freedom to wear less, yes! Less! Shorts, tanks, sandals, dresses… Should I keep going? It’s also picnic, rooftop party, and street festival time! […]


Holi NYC: Festival of Colors!

Last Saturday was definitely not a lazy day. Natalia and I ran around from Harlem to Brooklyn as we shot our third episode of the Finding Paola Web Series, hula hooped to Haitian music on my roof with Soukena, and made time to join some friends at the Festival of Colors all the way, deep […]


NYC Adventures: Lower East Side with Sarah

Two fantastic days. One week. Barrels of fun, inspiration, and pure LOVE! I was able to reconnect with one of the first faces I met when I first moved to New York recently. I never know how I lose touch with people, but it happens, but I’m learning to realize that we always reconnect no […]
