What brought you to New York City?
I originally came to NYC to attend college at NYU. In the end I wound up falling head over heels, so I stayed!
What is your go-to fitness routine in the Winter and how do you stay motivated on those freezing New York City days?
I tend to work out from home as I’m not a big gym person. My go-to workout is usually 10 minutes of jumping rope in the morning, or a 1-hr Vinyasa yoga dvd. Lately though, since my boyfriend is a personal trainer, I’ve been working on incorporating more weight training into my routine along with a super fun group class he teaches twice a week called the Axle Workout.
How do you balance your career, passion for blogging, relationship and everything else in your life like a flawless Superwoman?
It’s all about making time for what’s important to you. If you love it and it’s worth it to you, you’ll find a chance to incorporate it into your life. That and I’m SUPER organized. Like, maybe a little OCD.
