Happy May! I am heading back to NYC from Chicago today after such a fun weekend with my besties - so excited that it is truly feeling like spring and that summer is just around the corner! I absolutely love visiting Chicago every spring, it's so gorgeous here in Lincoln Park where my friends live, and it's fun to see my brother as well; we went for a ride on his motorcycle last night, got pizza, and hung out... it was lovely! I just love it here (when it's not freezing!) :) 

Anyway, hope you love this month's moodboard!! As always, please tag me on Instagram if you download it -- I absolutely love to see the mood board on your screens!

Good morning, March! Hope everyone had a fabulous February and leap day yesterday! Joe and I celebrated our four-year / one-year (leap day things!) anniversary last night in Brooklyn at one of our fave restaurants, followed by the Nets game!


This month I have an exciting ski trip with my besties from home next weekend, and then we have Easter at the end of the month! Figures crossed it starts to feel like springtime soon in NYC as well!

The End of an Era! (and the start of a new one!)

fran acciardo new nyc apartment
*our* new apartment


On Monday I officially moved out of my Soho apartment! My first apartment in NYC will always hold a special place in my heart; I moved into it sight-unseen after graduating from college and moving out of my house in Wisconsin. My brother drove me from Wisconsin to NYC in U-Haul, a two day trip that resulted in calling my perfect little one-bedroom home for the past three years.


My entire life I wanted to move to NYC after graduation. I always knew I wanted to be a city girlie, and the opportunity to live by myself in a precious apartment downtown is something I couldn't be more grateful for. I got so lucky with my apartment, and it shaped the first few years of my New York experience in the best way possible. I'll always remember this apartment so, so, so fondly. From my pink coffee tables to my naked barbies, all of the dinner parties and happy hours, the simple joys of living alone, and everything else I got to experience during my time my Soho, I'm sad to close this chapter of being an independent city girl, but excited for what's next.
