Heading into 2019, I am already making my resolutions a reality. I have always dreamed of living in Florida and working for Lilly, and I am proud to announce that I have already made both these dreams come true!
The stars suddenly aligned as I took a chance and applied for the Lilly Pulitzer store at the Breakers. I have been envisioning myself in this setting for a year since I first set my sights here. After my visit to this dreamy destination, I did everything in my power to steer my life towards south Florida.
Everything fell into place when my interviews one day turned into a job acceptance that afternoon. I was in disbelief as I came to realize that this step was the first towards the rest of my life. Everything was about to change, and this time it was just for me.
I packed my bags and hit the road with a backseat full of boxes and the rest in the rear view. It was then that it sank in that its been a year since the car accident that turned my world upside down. This job, this move, this drive… has turned my life right side up again, in the direction I’ve always dreamed of.
Making it to Palm Beach and moving in with my big sister in our dream apartment on the water, I have never felt more at home. I love where my life has led me, and it truly showed me that all this time of developing in the darkness, I truly found my light!
Special thanks to everyone who helped me through this past year
and guided me to my greatest goal. I cant wait to see what the new year has in store!

Being a fan of Lilly Pulitzer and working for the brand for so many years, I have always dreamed of attending their annual bash in Palm Beach. As I moved to the area this month, my dream became a reality, not only starting work at Lilly at The Breakers, but also attending the legendary Lilly event.
As we walked into The Beach Club, we were greeted with rose’ glasses and photo flashes. We made our way to the bar under the printed palms, and spotted several socialites. I had the pleasure of meeting Tinsley Mortimer, one of my favorite Real Housewives of New York. She was so sweet and shared her secrets of the Palm Beach social scene.
As the party progressed, the room opened up and we popped over to our tables to pop some bottles. The dance floor was flooded with a fabulous bohemian band and the attendees gathered all around. My date and I joined in and danced the night away.
We had a blast listening to the band and playing in the photobooth. The evening ended with a nightcap and a Palm Beach swag bag. What better way to celebrate our love of Lilly than with your best babes on the beach? I can’t wait for next year!
This New Years Eve is a special one, as it is the first of many I’ll be spending in Palm Beach! I just moved to this beautiful place, and I can’t wait to celebrate. We started out the night at an opulent mansion on the island. We were served champagne and surrounded by chandeliers. The towering tree lit up the living room as the live band began. We partied by the pool and popped in the photobooth.
As midnight was fast approaching, we made our way to The Colony. I walked into a wonderful evening lined with lights and lavish outdoor decor. We enjoyed a table with bottle service for all of our best friends.
We danced the night away under the stars at the hottest spot under the palms. What better way to bring in the New Year? I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store!
