Hi! I’m Jessica, and I’m the voice of this New York City life, style and travel blog. I hope you’re inspired by what you find here, and visit often!
My full name is Jessica Sallyann Sorentino. I’m a born & raised New Yorker who appreciates southern charm and New England style. I love supporting small businesses and I believe snail mail is the best mail. I spend my days ensuring you judge a book by its cover, and spend many nights reading. I’m currently on a mission to explore America one city every month, and New York City every day. This blog is where I share my adventures, real-life day-to-day, and favorites of all categories.
