cousin weekend in nyc + giveaway winner!

Happy February!! February is my favorite month due to some obvious reasons.. my big 2-5 is this month followed by Valentine’s Day. Whether I was in a relationship or not, Valentine’s Day was a sign of my birthday coming soon so all the pink and red hearts made me happy. And this month has some new and exciting travel plans for me! Anyways, let’s catch up from last week…

Last weekend, my cousin Ally came to visit from Columbus. Steve was also went home for the weekend so we got to have a nice little girls weekend. Our other cousin Jaqcui lives in Brooklyn, so she got to join us for all the festivities!
