Five Friday Favorites | 62 | Italian Restaurant, Christmas Tree, Colored Legal Pads, Sarah Flint Boots & More

 1.          La Pecora Bianca-  This spot is so delicious! You have to get the fried zucchini, burrata and meatballs. I loved the tagliatelle Bolognese. 

2.          Blue legal pad- I picked up some colorful legal pads for work and they have been quite the hit in the office. I honestly didn’t even realize I was writing on a colorful piece of paper, until several people noticed. I think it’s fun to take notes on a pretty colored legal pad, as opposed to white or yellow.

3.          Sarah Flint Perfect Dress Bootie 60 mm- I picked up this $750 heeled bootie for $200 at the Sarah Flint sample sale last week. I grabbed my regular size of 40. Maybe I should’ve sized up, not sure. They’re pretty tight on my toes, but like all good Sarah Flint shoes, they stretch very well over time. I think they need some more breaking in. I think they’re beautiful and nothing like anything else in my collection. Sadly, on the second day of wearing them, I stepped into a crack on the sidewalk and some of the suede on the heel broke off…I was so not amused, but lesson learned, I can’t even wear tiny heels on my commute! Flat sneakers only.

4.          The smell of Christmas trees- Team real tree or fake? We got our tree this past weekend and it makes the house smell amazing. We have always gotten a real tree. The tradition of going to pick out a tree with my family is one of favorite holiday traditions.  

5.          Just Salad reusable container- For a dollar you can buy a Just Salad branded reusable container and then you get a dollar off your salad purchase every time you bring in your container! I think it’s a great deal and you can help save the planet. I bought one and now it sits in my desk drawer, ready for its next use.

How to be an Attorney: Part 6: How to Get a Job

how to be an attorney, law school, attorney, lawyer, job, internship, law student, legal job, law firm, big law, suiting, legal intern

Welcome back to my series on how to be an attorney. This is everything I wish I knew about how to find a job as a law student. You can read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 here.


Big Law:

What I didn’t know about law school before going, is that the kids within the top percentage of the class get hand selected for interviews from big law firms the summer going into their second year to serve as summer associates. The law school facilitates these interviews. Those interviews for the summer associate position start in the summer after your first year of law school. 

Once you become a summer associate you hopefully get offered a position by the end of the summer, and then you will have a job going into your last year of law school.



In a similar realm, a lot of students get their full-time jobs after interning at a position over the summer going into their third year. 


On-Campus Recruiting:

Another way to get a job is through on-campus recruiting in the fall and spring of your last year of law school. This is usually from alumni who are hiring or firms that pull a lot of kids traditionally from your school. This also includes government positions like district attorney jobs.

Online Job Postings:

On top of all of the opportunities above, there are also job postings on LinkedIn, Indeed and Glassdoor. Most of these postings don’t open up until the spring semester. 


A lot of jobs also open up after graduation, while studying for the bar exam, which is extra stressful, and I wouldn’t recommend. I would focus on studying and then getting a job after you finish all your studies. 


A ton of people get jobs post bar exam. Although this feels like the minority of cases, you would be surprised. There are so many job postings in the fall after graduation as firms figure out who else they need to add to their office.

In Sum:

I wish I wouldn’t have been so stressed out about finding a job in my last year of law school. The reality is, you are graduating with a law degree. You are worth so much and you are so marketable. You will get a job, even if it’s not under the circumstances or the timing you want or you expect.

Five Friday Favorites | 61 | Burger Restaurant NYC, Night at the Met Museum, Black Boucle Blazer, NYC Tacos & More

 1.          JG Melon- This Upper East Side place is famous for their burgers! This restaurant is cash only and doesn’t take reservations. I got a cheeseburger with bacon, fries and a Coke. I loved it. I would definitely go back!

2.          Night at the Met- The Metropolitan Museum of Art is open until 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays. I have been to the Met a gazillion times, but I have never been at night. It’s totally a different vibe! I kind of loved it. I think it’s a fun way to spend a weekend evening.

3.          Abercrombie black boucle blazer- This blazer pictured above is a fan favorite! It looks way more expensive than it actually is. It’s really nicely made and is sure to gain lots of compliments.

4.          Casa Bocado- I went on a Saturday night to this SOHO spot and it was empty…kind of odd, but the food was delicious, so not sure why it was a ghost town! I loved the carne asada tacos, guac and shrimp tostadas. 

5.          Abraço- If you love a quiet cafe for your morning coffee, this is not the place for you. At 11am on a Sunday, this tiny, tucked away cafe was lively with regulars and music. The hot chocolate with whipped cream was to die for, paired with my warm cinnamon babka.

Five Friday Favorites | 60 | Hunger Games, Thin Crust Pizza, NYC Christmas Themed Bar & More

petes tavern, christmas bar, nyc christmas bar, nyc christmas, holiday themed bar

1.          Solidcore- I am a huge fan. I’ve been going since this summer and I feel like I’m in such great shape thanks to this cardio meets Pilates class! I’m almost on 40 classes and they keep getting harder!!!

2.          Posto- Such a delicious spot for thin crust pizza! It’s a great neighborhood spot. 

3.          Mint tea- I am not really a hot beverage person, but I have really been loving a hot cup of mint tea. Great for digestion too.

4.          The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes movie- Michelle, Giorgia and I went to see the Hunger Games prequel Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. This was the first book in the Hunger Games series I hadn’t read. But regardless, this movie was so good. It’s two and a half hours long, but the time flew by! I highly recommend. I might even see it again! I love the Hunger Games, so this movie was a real treat.

5.          Pete’s Tavern- This Gramercy spot is one of the oldest bars in the city and it will put you right into the holiday cheer! Beautifully decorated for the holidays, this is a fun spot to grab a festive cocktail with friends (especially if you don’t want to wait in line at Rolf’s- another Christmas themed bar).
