You’d never guess that I was still in New York City or any city for that matter. You’d probably think I was across the pond in some Celtic countryside castle. However, I am very much in downtown Manhattan at the Irish Hunger Memorial in Battery Park just steps away from Wall Street.

The Irish Hunger Memorial is a super interesting landmark that you should consider visiting next time you’re in New York. It represents the rural Irish landscape and abandoned stone cottages that many Irish left behind during the Great Irish Famine. It also stands as a reminder of the hunger that remains today. Being half Irish, the memorial really means a lot to me.

Inspired by the natural elements of the memorial, I put together a boho chic look centered around my favorite Lucky Brand Midi Dress (this one is similar). Lucky Brand has some great summer dresses that are sure to make anyone feel like a chic modern hippie. For accessories I complemented the dress with a Daniel Wellington ‘Classy Sheffield’ Crystal Index Leather Strap Watch, Kendra Scott 
Naomi Double Ring in Gunmetal and Mighty Purse Black and Gold Wristlet which has a built in pack to recharge your phone inside the purse (it’s a pretty awesome feature). I also wore (of course) my fav summer shoes ever my Swedish Hasbeens cross strap ‘Debutant’ sandals. Their clogs have not left my feet all summer. They’re super comfortable, super stylish and go with pretty much everything in my wardrobe. I will be stocking up on tons more Hasbeens come next summer. You seriously will not find a better summer shoe. If you can’t find your size Zappos, 6pm and Amazon also carry them.

My hair was inspired by Sansa’s latest hair styles on Game of Thrones.  I kept my makeup natural with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz Soft BrownMaybelline New York Eyestudio Colortattoo Concentrated Crayon Eye Color, Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara and the Maybelline Blushed Nudes Eyeshadow Palette.

Emotions Run Wild at The Museum of Feelings

Everyone in New York is talking about a newly iconic museum and it isn’t the MoMa. It’s the Museum of Feelings – essentially a living mood ring located in Battery Park whose vivid colors reflect the ever changing mood of New York City.

Museum of Feelings

Inside there are several rooms each representing distinct feelings through lights and mood altering scents provided by Glade. The aromas chosen were absolutely perfect and even altered by mood faster and better than the uniquely beautiful surroundings.

This interactive pop up is open until Dec. 15th and best of all it’s free.  However, expect to wait in line. I got to the museum 15 minutes before it opened on Sunday December 6th and still waited just under two hours to get in. If you can swing it, the best time to go is around 11am on a weekday when most people are at work. Though there will be a wait, I can tell you that it’s worth it. As soon as you enter the Museum of Feelings, your mind clears, everyday stress is left behind and you immediately begin to feel joyful and whimsical once again.
