Crossing the Brooklyn Bridge at Night



Brooklyn Bridge at Night

In our quest to uncover photo opportunities on our home turf before journeying to Europe next week, Tineey and I decided to take a night stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge into Dumbo. I’ve lived and worked in New York City for four years yet this was my first time walking the Brooklyn Bridge – maybe my third time in Brooklyn ever even (I obviously didn’t get out much). After making it a priority to get out of this work – drink – sleep cycle, I knew that this spot, as cliche as it is, was a must-see, must-photograph destination. No big deal to most native New Yorkers, but there’s a serenity here (especially in the evening) that makes it that much more special.

Walk down past the steps at the end of the bridge once you cross into Brooklyn and take a quick left. You’ll find a charming neighborhood called Dumbo. There’s a street down here where you can see the Empire State Building peek through the Manhattan bridge, aligning perfectly in the middle. You’ve probably seen this shot hundreds of times on Instagram.

Keep walking for a few minutes and you’ll come across the Brooklyn Bridge Park – a sweet little spot perfect for photographs of lower Manhattan. But how does the view compare to that of Jersey City? Compare them here.

How amazing is this night view? Take a few minutes, soak it in, then make the trek out. If you don’t feel like walking back across the bridge, the you can hop on the F train nearby to get back into Manhattan.

Please take risks. Don't let fear of the unknown push you into an existence of what-if's - a life swallowed in regrets.

Please tell your mom you love her, even if she wasn't there for you as much when you were a child. Send your best friend a cat meme and make her smile today. Surround yourself with people who are positive, people who uplift you, people who make you laugh and people who make you believe that you can do anything. Because these are the people who will catch you when you fall, and that support is exactly what you'll need to have behind you when you take these risks.

You live one life. And nothing is promised, or guaranteed - that includes the traditional idea of success and security - so why not just jump?

Hey you.

Stop being unhappy with yourself. Stop wishing you looked like somebody else, or that people like you as much as they like someone else. Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you. Stop hating your body, your face, your quirks - love them. Because without those things, you wouldn't be you - and why would you want to be anyone else? Be confident in yourself. Smile - it will draw people in. And if anyone hates you because you love yourself, stick your middle finger in the air and say screw it, my happiness will not depend on others anymore.

Love yourself. Trust yourself. Believe in yourself. Because you deserve that much.

#Rome done right.

I found the hotel with the best view of the #Colosseum and I wrote a post about it.

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

@urbancowboybnb | @salthousemkt
In just the past year, I've -

Left my full time career,
Moved out of a shared apartment,
Had to sleep on friends' couches for months,
Filmed a reality show,
Shared my father and family's story with the world,
Traveled through Italy, Iceland, Croatia, England, Sweden, Denmark, Mexico, Morocco and France,
Fallen in love in New York,
Signed my first lease for my very own apartment in Brooklyn,
Been published in The Huffington Post, Conde Nast Traveler, BBC World, CNN, Time, Yahoo and hundreds of other media outlets around the world,
Climbed to the top of the tallest mountain in North Africa,
And woken up every single day grateful to be able to follow my dreams.

Just 365 days, and your entire world could change. When will you take the first step?
Be strong, always.
Where are you going?
Coffee and donuts.
The only time you should look back, is to see how far you've come.

You don't have to know where you want to finish. You just have to begin.

Inspired by @rescueskin and my new post | 3 Ways to Kick Anxiety in the Ass | link in bio ????
There's a certain calm here that I can't explain - a sort of peace that can be found nowhere else.

Everyday begins with an act of courage and hope: ...getting out of bed.

Excited to partner with one of my favorite skincare brands @rescueskin - starting tomorrow I'll be taking over their feed! Xx ????
