Hey! You made it!
A little about me. My name is Erin and I am currently living in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Buffalo, I’ve loved New York City since I was 12 years old (my bedroom in Buffalo was New York City themed). After I graduated college in May with a BA in History, I found a job teaching 5th grade Social Studies in Brooklyn. It was my dream job AND in my dream city, how could I say no? I now live with my boyfriend, Peter, and we are loving exploring this new city together!
But enough about me!
Welcome to Girl Meets New York City. Girl Meets NYC was founded in 2017 under its original name, Yours Truly Erin. While times have changed and so has the name (although I still sign all my posts the same way!) my goal remains the same.
Inspire, encourage, connect.
It’s crazy how the whole mission of this blog can be summarized into three little words. But it’s true! I have three goals that I hope to achieve with Girl Meets NYC:
- Inspire: When you visit this blog, I hope you are inspired to create, invent, or do something brand new. That might mean it inspires you to try a new look, make a new food, or even take a trip to NYC! I can promise you, the FOMO will be real.
- Encourage: We are building a community of readers here. I want you to feel encouraged to accomplish anything you set your mind to! Look for little ways to get started doing something new throughout all of my posts–my little encouraging voice will be there!
- Connect: As I said, this is a community. If there’s ever a question that is tugging at you or you just want to chat, feel free to use my contact form to chat! My Instagram DMs are also always open, so please, feel free to connect with not only myself, but also the other readers of Girl Meets NYC. It’s clear you all already have one thing in common!
So what should you expect to see on this site anyway? Let me give you the rundown:
I can’t wait to share my love of clothes, accessories & all things style with you! You’ll find day-to-day looks, vacation wardrobe, school-appropriate teacher looks, and of course, shopping, sales, and try-ons!
I love traveling and now that I am near three major airports, I can’t wait to see where they will take me! On the blog, you’ll find travel guides for my favorite destinations, tips, tricks, and reviews!
New York City is a beast of a place to live. I will be sharing aspects of my day-to-day life on the blog. This includes (but is not limited to) fitness, food, beauty regimen, relationship advice, and the exhausting–but rewarding–life of being a 5th grade teacher. I hope that within the chaos of my life, you find something that resonates with you! And if you do, please let me know!
Phew, has anyone made it this far? Now that all the formalities are out of the way, what are you waiting for? Jump in!
& can we be friends now?
