Us 24/7


Wrapped up my time in the Big Apple with a little shopping at Vineyard Vines Grand Central!

A few months back, I met up with 3 of my best friends and their moms for lunch. While we were munching on our lunch, a gift bag came out that included an apple, a taxi cab, and a napkin from subway (lol). We were going to New York City for our graduation gift! We all were thrilled and counting down the days until we boarded the plane!  Fast forward to last weekend, I’m excited to share with you all the memories and stops we made when we were in the Concrete Jungle.

FRIDAY

Our plane touched down in New York and we had the whole day ahead of us. We arrived at the Knickerbocker Hotel, let me tell you, the room was huge and their soundproof walls made the insanity of Time Square completely fade away! We found our way around the subway to headed to the MET.  I was so excited to be going there and the place is gigantic!  You could spend days in there! Next, we had tickets for Top Of the Rock at 7:30pm which was the perfect time to get a bird's eye view of the city at the golden hour! That was a major highlight of the trip. Scratch the observation deck at the Empire State Building (overpriced and metal bars crowding the view). Visit Top of the Rock instead, it's mindblowing how peaceful and still the bustling city streets look from that high up! There is always room for dessert in my book, so we made a stop at the famous Magnolia Bakery to get their out of this world banana pudding. (P.S. they ship nationwide now!)

SATURDAY

Saturday morning, Mary and Rachel left for the Governors Ball Music Festival, while  Hannah and I did more exploring of the City. Before we headed out, we starting off our morning with an intense SoulCycle class! That was my first class and I was surprised how much it lives up to the hype! By far one of the best workouts I have had! SoulCycle, if you happen to take a peek at this blogpost, can you please open a studio in Ft. Lauderdale? Thanks! Next, we took the subway over to visit the 9/11 Memorial and Museum.  You must take the tour of the museum if you are there, it’s such a heart wrenching experience but it really makes you appreciate our country and those that are here to protect us. When we were finished, we walked over to the Oculus building right next door and this place is insanely cool! The building reminded me of something from the Jetsons!

SUNDAY
Since it was our last full day in the City, we were determined to make the most out of it and we did! We got up and headed to Brooklyn to trek across the Brooklyn Bridge. You are able to view the City in such a different perspective! Then, we all wanted to do some major shopping in SoHo. As we were casually walking down the street, we came across these beautiful polaroid portraits of people, so we walked back and began chatting with the man behind the camera, Jean Andre. Listing to him talk about his passion was so inspiring to all of us, he was such a kind soul! So we did a little shoot with him in the middle of the City! I thought it would be interesting if we took a photo on a taxi, so he quickly ran up to the cab driver if he could sit us upon the trunk of the taxi cab! Meeting him and getting those photos of us was an amazing memory we could only experience while in NYC.

Hope you all enjoyed my little NYC recap! What's your favorite stop to see in NYC?

Senior Prom!

Tuesday, May 23, 2017








    
      




Hi Everyone,

Wow! Here's a quick little life update: I have had quite a hectic week! Life has been nonstop since prom (which is somewhat of a good thing, there will be so much more post!) I have been delayed in posting my prom photos because right after prom, my class and I packed up our bags and headed off to Hawks Cay in the Florida Keys.  I couldn't think of a better location to create a few more memories with my friends before we head off to college! Immediately after we returned from the Keys, there was graduation rehearsal, graduation, and then #FAB4 graduation party!

I finally had some time to sit down and write, which is such a great feeling considering I have been constantly on the move this past week! I can't wait to update you on all of the end of the year celebrations, so let me begin with prom!

In all honesty, the typical "prom" look isn't really my thing.  Everything now of days is so gaudy and flashy, it was extremely hard to find a gown that reflects myself and my personality. This is so ironic considering last year (my first prom), I went for the total glitz gown.  Thankfully, I found Camilyn Beth.  Her designs are darling and she's totally talented!  I fell in love with this one gown and literally everything else I looked at couldn't compare to that gown! So, in typical Jillian fashion, I ordered it last minute and was elated that the dress fit like a glove.  I couldn't have been happier!

Kyle looked absolutely handsome in his navy suit and adorable flamingo bowtie from Collared Greens! It was hilarious, I remember telling him that since we looked so good, we should wear our outfits around town! It was honestly a night for the books and a great end to high school. Cherishing the time with the ones I love made the night so special.

Xoxo,

Jillian

Thank you Camilyn Beth for the sweet note you wrote me, your dress was stunning!

Costal Blues

Tuesday, May 9, 2017










As I'm coming to the end of high school, I can't help but dream about all the endless fun I will have this summer. It’s insane to wrap my mind around the idea that this summer will be my last summer of complete freedom. And what I mean by that is this is the last summer of no responsibilities, I’m still young enough to not have the weight of worries that come from jobs, college, and such.

I’m counting down the days till the start of summer. Recently, three of my best friends and I were surprised with a trip to NYC to kick off summer and we couldn't have asked for a better graduation present! Soon, Rachel, Mary, Hannah and I will be planning our trip to the City and if you have any recommendations, please don't hesitate to sent them my way!

Before I go, get this….Hari Mari, a Texas based flip flop brand, has teamed up with me! It's so exciting having the opportunity to work with them. I’m being completely honest when I say that, their flip flops are one of the best I have ever worn! They are extremely comfy and durable.  I can’t wait to take these along with me while I’m boating, headed to the beach, and everything in between. (Hari Mari also donates 1% of sales on every flip flop purchase to help kids who are battling pediatric cancer.  Great shoes with an even greater cause!) I'm hoping this summer will be full of sunshine and endless memories.

Xo,

Jillian
