This post is a continuation of the post, Fifth Stop: NYC – Day 1&2. So, if you have not checked out the first post, make sure to read it before continuing with days 3, 4, and 5!
On day 3, I went to the FIT fashion museum, explored Soho and Chinatown, and went to my first NBA game (the Knicks versus the Pistons) at Madison Square Garden.
On day 4, I explored Brooklyn, and I LOVED it there so much. Although I got lost on the subway quite a few times, it was totally worth it when I finally made it to Williamsburg.
On day 5, we met with the co-founder of Windows Wear to see their exhibit at Berkley College’s Manhattan campus. We also had the incredible opportunity to go to Coach’s NYC headquarters to see how they produce their beautiful leather goods. At the end of the day we flew home from an incredible city back to our own incredible city of Milwaukee.
I would like to thank both my parents and Mount Mary’s Fashion Department for providing me with the opportunity and blessing to travel to NYC with friends and fellow fashion students. It is an experience I learned so much from, and will never forget. It was the perfect end to my nineteenth year, and a beautiful start to my twenties.
I hope you enjoy these photos!
Lots of Love,
The second week of December. Finals week. The week I always wonder how I persevere through, even when I have eaten three packages of ramen, cannot remember the last time I slept more than four hours at a time, and am anxiously waiting to see if my grades are as good as they can be.
My best friend, Carlie, and I needed a moment to destress, so what do we do? Watch Netflix? Eat junk food? Use a facial mask? No. We have an impromptu photo shoot.
Carlie photographed all of these lovely shots. This was a way for both of us to go have fun for thirty minutes, and let go of the constant stress both of us have been dealing with due to work, internships, school, finals, volunteering, the holiday season, and much more.
So, this week, if you and your friend are feeling stressed, grab your phone, camera, or polaroid and go take photos. It does not matter if they look great, bad, or somewhere in between, the purpose is to spend quality time with a friend, have some laughs, and to get your mind off of your stress. Also, you might get some pretty cool photos out of it too!
Here are how some of Carlie’s (Instagram: @carliepageo) photos turned out:
