I spent last weekend in Portland.  It was my first time in this city and I really enjoyed it.

Exploring NYC and Teen Vogue Fashion U Express Party


I arrived in New York City armed with a venti Starbucks iced white mocha and two hours of sleep.  But even after flying all night, finally seeing NYC for the first time was exhilarating.    




I rode the subway for the first time!

Teen Vogue Fashion U was kicked off with a party at Express.  The event had a dj, snacks, mocktails, and shopping discounts.



Enjoying my delicious mocktail!


I met Andrew Bevan, the style features director at Teen Vogue.



After the event, I went to the top of the Empire State Building.  It definitely put me in an empire state of mind.




I walked through Times Square on my way back to the hotel.  



National Anthem
