Happy November, Looking Back at October

November 3, 2015

Madewell Vintage Denim Recycling Truck

Happy November, readers! How was your October? Is it just me or does October always fly by? I blinked and it was over. I managed to document a few moments over the month. Here are the highlights…

Madewell hosted a denim recycling drive and drove their rad 1963 Ford ‘Pop-up Recycling Truck’ over to the Meatpacking District. They setup shop right outside my office, and I recycled three pairs of old jeans that will be made into housing insulation–how cool is that?! Also, I got to “drive” the vintage truck! If you know me, you know I love vintage vehicles.

We moved into our new apartment in Park Slope at the beginning of the month–our view is definitely the best part!

Ipsy NYC 2015 | The City and Us

I picked up a few new beauty tricks–like how to best fill in eyebrows–at a work event with Stephanie.

Kelley | Rock n' Roll Half Marathon

I completed my third half marathon, the Rock n’ Roll Brooklyn Half Marathon, with approximately 15,000 other runners!

Picnic In Prospect Park | The City and Us

After the half marathon, we met a group of friends in Prospect Park for a picnic.

North Fork Getaway | The City and Us

Dan and I escaped the city for a couple of days and explored the North Fork of Long Island. I hope more weekend getaways like this one are in our near future. It was such a treat.

The Blood Manor haunted house is the real deal! Highly, highly recommended!

Mail Order Bride | Halloween 2015

Lastly, I dressed up as a mail order bride for a Halloween Costume Party at work. It was 100% inspired by my very creative cousin, Sara (thanks for the inspiration, Sara!). A lot of hot glue was used to keep that FedEx skirt assembled, haha.

October was a good one. Now on to November. As always, thank you for reading! xo
