Life Lately {Work, Ladurée & Bloggers} + A $250 Giveaway!

May has been a crazy good month! I got into the swing of a new job, attended fun work events, beautiful flowers started blooming, the weather warmed up, and I got to know some lovely bloggers at Ladurée while eating French macarons.

Brought donuts to work on my first day || Pretty Julep nail polish || Smoothies with my mom
Beautiful flowers blooming near my apartment
At work || New sandals from Yellow Box || We had tacos and margaritas at work!
Read Adulting and I loved it ||  What I wore to work || Ate macarons at Ladurée 
Macarons are coming home with me! || Me at Ladurée || Pretty macarons
Got a signed book and wine from a work event || With my dog || Influenster Spring VoxBox

It was wonderful meeting more New York and New Jersey bloggers! Monica, who put this all together, and Alex, who has her own beauty line, are the two bloggers I've met before, and they're the sweetest people. Monica even made us all personalized mini mason jars (which you can see at the bottom of this post)! I love mine so much! 

The new bloggers I met are Nicolette, who is so friendly and cute, Simone, who has the fiercest style and she's so nice, Meagan, a fashion illustrator who oozes cool, and Alexandra, a stylish Texas girl who makes her own scarves. It was great chatting with them about blogging and life, and I wish I could've talked to all of them more to get to know them better. 

We're planning to meet up again for a picnic in Central Park and I'm looking forward to it!

  7. Mmmmmm, macarons. Glad you got to meet new people!

  8. It sounds like you had such an amazing month - getting the hang of a new job, a visit to Laduree (so envious, even though I've been more often than most people are lucky enough to have) and a blogger meet-up. So much fun! May has been a month of ups and downs for me but some really exciting book-related things have happened which has been wonderful.

  9. Your month sounds exhausting, fun and amazing!!

  10. Yes, it's been a crazy, but amazing month! I'm excited to hear more about that book-related news!

  11. It's going really well! I love it! How's your job going? How are your co-workers? Is the commute far?

  12. I always love meeting other bloggers! It's so fun!

  13. I would love to hang out with you again! We're thinking of meeting up at Central Park sometime, so I hope you can make it!

  14. I brought those munchkins in on my first day of work and they were gone in two hours!

  15. I LOVE your Instagrams! I have never checked out your Instagram before but now I just immediately followed haha. I also read Adulting recently and loved it too. Isn't Kelly so funny and so smart?

  16. Yay I'm glad! Mine's pretty good, a little slow right now but it should pick up soon. My coworkers are really nice, we are all going out tomorrow after work! I'm only about 10 minutes away, but with traffic its usually 20-30 minutes. what about you? how are your co-workers?

  17. Sara, thanks so much for the great post! It's been absolutely wonderful having you as a blogger friend and I'm excited for what the future holds for us! I am jealous that you got to go to such a fun blog meet up. Your shoe picture is adorable :)

  18. I commented on The Modern Austen's 5/26 post as Christy DuBois.

  19. I commented on MDC Artistic Designs December 11, 2013 post. It was the first post so I didn't realize it was for last December until after I commented.


Hello, beautiful! Thanks for leaving a comment!
Have a lovely day!
