Fun fact about me: I very rarely watch TV. Jared & I don’t have cable- only Netflix and even with Netflix I only really watch it when we’re together. I was with a group of girls and someone asked, “what’s everyone watching right now?!” And I felt like such a weirdo being like uhhhh nothing right now... 😬😬😬 actually...nothing...ever. ⠀ ⠀ Well that all changed last week! I had been working all day everyday and needed something to get my mind off work of all kinds- no computer, no instagram, no phone. And started watching Riverdale. OMG 2 seasons later I’m in a full blown Betty & Jughead obsession and am reminded why I don’t watch TV anymore! 🤣🤣🤣 ⠀ ⠀ Soooo serious question for tonight...who watches Riverdale, who are your favorites and how do I watch season 3?!?! ⠀ ⠀ #shoplovely #riverdale #falloutfit

Picnics in Central Park sound like a great idea, until you see a tiny little monster scurrying in the bushes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Was it worth this pic? Yes. Would I do it again? Probably not. The fear of rats is real in NYC. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸@allthewildair ________________________________ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #travelnyc #americanstyle #nyclife #secretnyc #what_i_saw_in_nyc #traveltagged #postcardsfromtheworld #centralpark #nycgetaway #femmetravel #nycfall #topnewyorkphoto #instagramnyc #newyorkcity #instagood10k #traveldreamseekers #bestofnewyork #nycviews #nycblogger #newyorkgirl #timeoutnewyork #girlswhotravel #nycstyle #centralparkwaterfall #fallinnyc #newyork_ig #sheisnotlost
