top of the rock

February 27, 2014 | 266 SHARES

Three levels of absolute breathtaking views. Welcome to the Top of the Rock. It’s $27 to get access to the three levels. There’s even a section to sit and relax and charge your phone. Now that I’ve visited, and if I had to choose, I’d choose this over the Empire State Building observatory any day. (If you want to compare views, head over here.)

If you want to get both the day and night views, head on over about an hour before sunset. Stay for around two hours and you’ll get to experience both. I went on a weekday afternoon and the line was around 10 minutes (including security check).

Just a big THANK YOU to you, my friends, and invite you to read the 100+ comments left on my recent post: 10 Things You Need to Learn to Start Living the Life of Your Dreams. I am unbelievably inspired, and forever grateful for your strength and courage, but also proud at how much of a positive community this blog has become. It would not be ANYTHING but a measly personal portfolio without YOU. So I'm spending the next few hours responding to each and every one of the comments left on that post so each of you knows that I am here, listening and most importantly inspired by YOU. 
The link is in my bio for an easy click-through. Thank you, and welcome to the family. With love, from #NYC. ?
The storm will pass. Never lose hope. I believe in you. ?

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” – Steve Jobs
When everything goes wrong and life seems like it's falling apart, have hope in knowing that you are being broken only to become stronger.  Strength has never been and never will be a gift - it is built and earned with blood, sweat, tears and hard work. When no one else seems to believe in you, you will find the strength to believe in yourself - and when you do, my love, you will have the power and perspective to make all of your dreams come true.

If you're looking to create a career for yourself, college cannot just be about the classes you take - classes don't give you a career.

I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something greater than you, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world. Thank you to @tresemme for hooking up the hurr & inviting me to be a part of the team for @teenvogue x @hercampus #collegefashionweek
Big things often have small beginnings. I remember waking up three years ago and deciding to start a blog having no idea where to begin, but I did the first step of making any dream a reality - starting. You don't have to have all the right answers to every question that may come up along the way (there's Google for that) - you just need to begin.

Honored to be representing @tresemme at the @teenvogue x @hercampus #collegefashionweek show tonight with my little sis @timberwar :)
Hello, Saturday. You deserve a proper brunch in bed. ?
