about the blog
I started journaling about my life and travels in 2008 through a weekly newsletter but didn’t create my first personal blog until November 2010. I had a nasty habit of building a loyal following and then deleting my work and starting over. On this microblog you’ll see a lot of my lifestyle snapshots including but not limited to what I’m packing for my next adventure, the most gorgeous sunrise shining over the city, or the architectural details of my neighborhood.
about the girl
Welcome to my microblog. My name is Rebecca and I’m a city slicker on vineyard time. This is a unique and colorful view inside my life. I like to travel, eat good food, buy nice things, and surround myself with interesting people. I'm fortunate enough to be living in one of the most exquisite cities in the world and find beauty in things great and small from the large skyscrapers towering over me to the perfect red apple I happened to pick up that morning. You can always catch up with me here and I hope you will join me on my journey! Sincerely, Rebecca

Rebecca took the long way home. Went on a foliage drive through Connecticut to try and catch the last of what this unusually warm fall as to offer.
the leaves have been decorating the neighborhood!
Blogspot/Blogger is just another blogging platform. It’s much more traditional versus Tumblr’s microblogging. It’s nice for formulating long, thoughtful posts but it lacks a real community! I couldn’t find a “spot” where I felt like I fit.
Hello anonymous! Thank you for your enthusiasm, it instantly brightened my dimly lit mood. I know I haven’t been writing or posting much at all. I’m really trying to figure out my next steps and where I want to go with all of this. I’m trying to find my passion in what I want to talk about versus hopping on the bandwagon and writing about hauls and all that. It’s fun but no longer interesting to me as a subject. I realized on my Blogspot and in my own articles I enjoy writing about interesting places and interesting people so I think I’m going to run with that and switch things up (maybe move back to Tumblr? I’m not feeling Blogspot as a whole!) My blogging world has become very cluttered with half finished projects.
Aside from that I’ve been busy with class, work, and I was in Florida last weekend so I have been running around a bit. I will be attending some shows as part of Boston Fashion Week so that’s a post you’ll probably see. I’m cluttered in my blogging world and in my life. It’s a blurry hurricane of J. Crew and Athleta but it’s just as overwhelming! My room is so messy right now I’ve been sleeping on the couch. Thank you for checking in with me.
Spotted some cuteness on the hill today
Just upgraded to the iPhone 6 (: I pre ordered and went with the white/gold. I’m super happy with it! I was afraid of the size but when lined up against the 5s it’s barely bigger and it’s amazingly light. The camera is also pretty nice and I’ll probably be using it more often than I ever did with another phone camera. Selfies are looking pretty good ;p Music also sounds a lot better through the speakers!
It’s gonna be a long day, I need a long night. I want you to do me right!
