2 Favorite Pizza Spots

Disclaimer: I am no expert on New York pizza or really anything about the city as a whole, however in my constant ongoing search for the greatest slice in this town, two places have been total stand outs and I had to share. Both are relatively small chains with a couple of locations each, and truly heaven on a crust.

Artichoke Bastilles | After watching this video about pizza in NYC, I had to try it. After months, I figured that there would be no way that it would lead up to the hype, and it somehow topped my expectations. The slices are relatively cheap, but huge. You really only need one. Seriously. This is the creation of artichoke dip and chicken pot pie on a crust. 

& Pizza | This is a relatively new chain here, and if you are lucky enough to pass when they are handing out free samples, it's worth stopping by. The pizzas are also relatively cheap and can be shared. The toppings take the art of pizza to the next level (I recommend the mushroom).  This article is quite intriguing for employees and fans. 

Happy Thursday- I hope you have a great start to the weekend!

The Truth About the Job Search



I am the last of my friends to get a full time job. While that seems pathetic or lazy, it was something that I knew was going to be a part of my plan. If I had a quarter for every time a friend, family member or stranger asked me about my job search...I wouldn't have to worry about rent. The whole "three bucks, two bags, one me" thing was pretty relevant to my life (for clarity, I definitely had more than two bags and fortunately, a little more than three dollars in my bank account). Despite the fact that it's been a crazy week, I couldn't have made a better decision coming here. 

Of course I had friends, family and my boyfriend in the city, but it's still been an adjustment. These transitional times are the ones that thicken our skin and often make great stories.  I have learned more than anything in the past couple of weeks is the importance of patience. By coincidence, I was watching a video about Aries (my sign) and the number one challenge that was mentioned was having patience. In no way is this post supposed to be a pity party or plea to other companies, but it's hard waiting. (I often think of the phrase, "stress is caused by being "here" and wanting to be "there.") Writing is a way of coping for me when things are messy.  For every rejection, bad interview and long day means I'm one step closer to finding the right job for me. In the meantime, all we can do is work hard, be patient and hope that everything works out in the long run (fingers crossed). 

Weekend Links


Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend! I went down to Smorgasburg this Saturday to check out the incredible street food in Williamsburg and then wandered over to DUMBO. It was only the second time I have been to Brooklyn and it was clearly the place to go. 

I finally got to see NBC studios last night. Although I missed catching Jay Z or Ryan Gosling going into the building, it was still beautiful. Kate McKinnon and Vanity Fair produced this amazing video.

My best friend Holly got me a Mantra band for graduation. I usually don't wear a ton of bracelets, but I couldn't say enough great things about these. Not only are they easy to wear and can be bent into any shape, but are sterling silver and don't tarnish.


My favorite series- considering they filmed nearby, I have to check out some of the places!

Finally!


I have moved! Although I have no formal job yet and am staying with family, I am in the city, ready to start working as soon as possible. In the meantime, I will be hitting up every coffee shop on the island and working on the job search in the meantime. Although I loved working over the summer and traveling throughout August and September, words cannot express how much better it is to actually be in the city. 

I'm excited to see friends, explore and do a lot of walking- definitely great for social media (@emmasheehy). Having a schedule will make it much easier to blog more frequently.

My 1st Experience at Soulcycle

After passing by Soulcycle in multiple locations, I finally decided to give it a go. Soulcycle definitely has a stigma with moms, and while some of it is true, there were a lot of things that I wish I knew. Ultimately it was a really fun experience and I came out of the class floating (and covered in sweat). 


Coupons | Soulcycle is extremely expensive- $35-40 a class definitely adds up. Look into the deal on their website for 50% off your first time- shoes included!

Shoes | You have to pay for them after your first time and they are impossible to get off the bike once they are hooked on. I couldn't figure it out, and left them on the bike...

Sweat | I consider myself pretty active, however I have never sweat so much in my life as I did in the 50 minute session. It may seem really intimidating with all of the people who seem professionals, however you get to decide your resistance and speed.


Hair | Pull your hair into a bun. Just do it. And for the love of god, bring water.
