Snowed in

This past week has not been great for me. We got an unexpected snow storm on Thursday and this inexperienced city has been in shut-down ever since. I mean, complete shut down. People began to panic and all cars rushed out at the same time. It made driving home on Thursday a huge "adventure" for me. My total drive time was over two hours (normally less than 15 minutes). Then it came to the fact that most stores and all offices were closed (due to the fact no one wanted to leave their home). While being trapped and being bored at home, I got my second cold of the season. Remember I was just sick two months ago? How can I get sick again this quickly?? (sigh)
Anyway, the snow is finally melting today and I am hoping things will get back to normal by tomorrow. I am determined to beat this cold so I am not going to let it control my life for a week!
Thank you for all of your concerns via Instagram. Portland is slowly recovering and it shall be spring after this mess :)
p.s. in the meantime, I am catching up on all the fun and beautiful photos from New York Fashion Week!

My trip to New York was a last minute trip, I really enjoy it I got to meet some bloggers and I got to hang out at the French Connection showroom, I saw their mid-summer collection. But i didn't get to see any of the shows. but I hope I can make it in september.

Such a 'hot' outfit even though it's cold where you are! It's not fun to be sick again, but as all bad (and good) things, it shall pass. Have a great week.
