As you may or may not know about me, I am a huge list person. I make lists for everything, but one of my favorite types of lists is bucket lists. I’ve made not one, not two, but three bucket lists, for this summer alone.
The first is a list of all the things I’d like to do, learn, experience, and accomplish this summer. The second list is a shopping list of summer trends as well as staples – just everything that I need or want to buy this summer! A lot of those things have come out in my Currently Craving posts, but it involves everything from neon to high-low skirts to white jeans.
The third list is the one I’m most excited about: it’s my NYC Edition, organized by neighborhood. Last summer I interned in the city and I loved it, and had a lot of fun. But I didn’t take advantage of the city the way I intended to. So this summer, I made an NYC-specific bucket list to make sure I take full advantage of being in the greatest city on earth!
A huge thanks to one of my absolute favorite blogs, NYC PR Girls – I got a lot of great ideas from their District PRofiles, restaurant reviews, etc.
