I’m a tremendous fan of both! Though, I read more memoirs than I do novels…I’d recommend Lolita, A Clockwork Orange, any and all John Green novels, and The Giver.
For music: The Decemberists, MGMT, Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, The Black Keys, Grouplove, Alex Turner, Arcade Fire…
i'm going to new york for two weeks, what do you think are some essentials i should take with me? <3
A great pair of dark-wash “skinny jeans”, a vibrant floral sundress (for warm afternoons, bike rides, and picnics), a pair of wellies in a hue that is easily paired with several garments you pack, a thick-knit sweater, basic black flats, a cotton button-up blouse, a great camera, a tiny sketchbook for people-watching, and perhaps a fresh manicure.
Oh, and it is absolutely ESSENTIAL that you bring a sense of adventure. Say YES to opportunities and get the most out of your trip! Go to museums, frequent tiny coffee shops. Be Woody Allen for an afternoon. Be Carrie Bradshaw for an evening. Be Holly Golightly for breakfast.
Hope you have a wonderful trip! xo
