September was full of excitement, involving building IKEA furniture, discovering a restaurant that has "Pac-man dumplings" and a Brooklyn warehouse party hosted by Drew Barrymore. New York is never a dull moment. Take a look:
The month kicked off by officially moving into a new apartment (!!!) and living with some awesome new roommates (see below). It's nice to finally be in a place that I'll be staying for a while — after moving around so much around the city, I'm glad to have settled finally.
Shout out to the roomies for spending six hours with me building this IKEA bed...
If you didn't know this by now, I'm a little obsessed with the STORY store in Chelsea. It's a spot that changes themes every few months — this time was a collaboration with talented illustrator and Instagram sensation Donald Robertson.
I'm also a huge fan of cool street art:

I now live across from by CHLOE, a hip and trendy 100% vegan, plant-based restaurant that is all the rage at the moment. The line is seriously ways out the door...so I obviously had to give it a try. And it's pretty darn great. I had the 'Whiskey BBQ' burger (smoky portobello mushrooms & seitan, sauteed kale, onion marmalade, grilled pineapple, bourbon BBQ, potato bun)
– it was phenomenal.

A major highlight of September was #29Rooms, the massive celebration of Refinery29's 10th Birthday. In R29 fashion, they knew how to throw a party, which was essentially a Brooklyn rave hosted by Drew Barrymore...

Neighborhood strolls, checking out some cool local spots:
I went to my first Ryerson event as an alum! I was super excited to get that blue and yellow scarf tbh...

And the wonderful Pac-Man dumplings I mentioned...this adorable dish can be found at Red Farm in the West Village:
Got to play around with some virtual reality at my internship, this was the result:
