When I found out LiketoKnow.it created an art wall in NYC, naturally I made it my mission to snap a photo next to the #itstartedwithascreenshot mural. I reached out to my go-to photographer Erin and asked her to join in my urban adventure. An avid city lover herself, Erin happily obliged. With the help of my amazing hairdresser Tracey and my awesome dad (he arranged an uber), we were on our way.
NYC seriously makes me feel content and lighthearted. The noise, the people, the buildings, and the endless sights are so thrilling. Life is never dull or mundane in it’s domain. I feel fortunate to live so close to the city that never sleeps.
As soon as we stepped out of the uber, I spotted the hot pink wall. It was so fun and inviting. At that moment I felt proud to be a fashion blogger and stylist and couldn’t help but reflect on my journey. A year ago I was a timid and very uninformed fashionista. Now I am a reward style influencer about to take a picture in front of the shopping service that gave me my big break. There certainly is no happiness without hard work and it’s beginning to pay off.
After a few pictures in front of the wall and some very strange glances from pedestrians, we headed to lunch for pizza. Could this day get any better?! After lunch I changed into two more outfits and we took advantage of our backdrop. So many unique and colorful buildings were in our proximity and we found enjoyment in snapping away. Erin is so patient and innovative behind the camera. She works tirelessly to make me look my best.
My favorite part of the day was having the opportunity to sit and engage with Erin. We connected on a much deeper level. Our commonalities were astonishing too. She is yet another example of a mompreneur defying the odds and attaining success on her own terms.
Days like today give me hope, promise, and affirmation that what I am doing is meant to be. The genuine smile on my face and the joy in my heart is priceless. Here’s to more urban adventures, time spent with Erin, and continued fashion success.
“Hard work + Dreams+ Dedication=Success.”
