Welcome to 1st & Bloom
This blog was born out of boredom on a rainy week in the Summer of 2012, after I graduated from college, but before I had a full-time job. I desperately needed something to occupy my time other than baking every cookie recipe on the internet while watching Ally McBeal. (I watched all 5 seasons of Ally McBeal that summer- no lie.)
It was then that I realized how much I genuinely enjoy writing and sharing my ideas and thoughts on things that make me happy; including fashion, food, and travel- three of my biggest passions in life.
I graduated college in the spring of 2012, and moved minutes outside of NYC with my boyfriend shortly after.
positive energy person.
social media person.
