Apartment hunting in New York City is the worst ever. Have you ever wondered what the inside of these expensive rentals look like? Here's my top 3..

Finding the perfect apartment can be a thrilling whirlwind of an experience- new place, new roommates, new neighborhood. With my mom, a real estate agent, and my father, a home inspector, I’ve been able to see inside a fair share of homes on the market in the past.

It’s About Damn Time – Moving To New York City

Moving To New York City

I’ve put off writing this piece partially because of the amount of work I’ve had to finish, life events that need to be properly prepared for and celebrated, but also because some part of me still believes this isn’t real. But considering my future roommates were handed their keys and I’m on my way to pick mine up today, it’s finally here.
