Hello everyone!

While looking through Urban Outfitter’s website, I found so many new pieces for fall that are absolutely adorable. I think all of these items are super versatile and can be worn throughout all different seasons as well. If you’re looking to up your wardrobe game for fall, keep reading!

Truly Madly Deeply Caroline Stripe Sweater in Neutral Multi: I saw this sweater in store, and it’s one of the cutest sweaters I’ve ever seen! I really like the abstract color scheme and how the sleeves are monochrome. I would never think to pair the orange with the pink, but it looks so stunning. I think this would be such a great sweater for both fall and winter. You could also pair it with a skirt or shorts if it’s warmer outside.

Short Brim Felt Fedora in Black: I never wear hats, but I personally love the way they look and am definitely planning on buying one very soon. This one is my favorite! I tried this on, and I really loved the way that it looked. Even though it says it’s short brimmed, I think the brim is the perfect width. It honestly doesn’t look like a fedora when you have it on; when I wore it, I had it sitting upwards on my head rather than straight down. It looked so cool!

BDG Rodeo Drive Straight Leg Jean in Light Blue: These jeans are amazing. I love the wash of them and how they’re structured, but still have that looser, mom jean style of fit. Unfortunately, they are currently out of stock in my size, but I’m definitely going to try them on once they’re back in stores or online!

UO Floral Tiered Babydoll Dress in Black Multi: I saw this dress in white awhile ago, and I think it looks so comfortable and cute. I love the pink roses on it and how simple but sweet it is! I think this would look great with a pair of boots and a leather jacket for fall/winter!

Have you been loving any items from UO lately? Their fall collection is looking great so far!

Here’s what I’m showing:

My Favorite Cafes and Small Restaurants

IMG_2099

“One thing ’bout me, I am a foodie, so you know I take you for a bite to eat.” -Coast Modern in their song Cute, but also many other people in this world.

Although I don’t consider myself a major foodie, I do love coffee, tea, cute cafes, and finding new places to visit. Therefore, after being asked to write this blog post, it only felt right to follow through.

I’m not going to be naming any chain coffee shops (but Starbucks, if you’re reading this, please do give me a sponsorship). I wanted to focus on places that are more unique and in big cities so that more of you have access to them. Of course, since I’m from/lived in California my whole life, many of these will be located in Los Angeles. There are also going to be several in New York because you guys know that I travel there often.

Anyways, let’s get on to the actual post. (P.S. These are in no particular order.)

  1. Le Pain Quotidien: I fact checked the locations that Le Pain has since I have one that’s local but also see them everywhere in New York, and they’re in 17 different countries! This is a restaurant that you should definitely check out. They have a great selection of brunch items, drinks, and pastries. This is my favorite place to get avocado toast. I also really love the atmosphere of Le Pain; the one by me has the cutest outdoor seating but also an adorable French bakery looking interior.
  2. Sarabeth’s in New York City: My dad and I had breakfast here when we were in New York, and it was so delicious but also so cute inside. They had a huge menu with a lot of different types of foods. It’s also right by Central Park so it’s a great location if you want to explore more of the city afterwards.
  3. The Butcher’s Daughter: This is an awesome restaurant in both NY and LA. Well known for their cute paper straws with avocado print, The Butcher’s Daughter specializes in plant based meals. I really love this because I’m a big fan of salad and like pressed juice just as much as the next person. I had their kale caesar salad and water flower juice. It was really delicious, and again, the atmosphere was incredible; there were plants hanging everywhere and fresh, white walls. I went to the one in the West Village.
  4. Alfred’s Tea Room: This is such a cute spot in LA. I finally decided to check it out a few months ago after seeing so many photos of it. It definitely lived up to my expectations. The drink I had was super good, the people working were friendly, and it was an awesome spot to chill out at. If you love pink and tea, you must try this place!
  5. Carrera Cafe: This is another cafe on Melrose. Once again, it’s another place I found out about through Instagram. The cafe has a big painted wall outside, which is so pretty. One thing I’ve noticed about Carrera is that it has a lot of tables inside and is bigger than Alfred’s Tea Room. It’s also right on Melrose, so you can stroll down the street and do some shopping or plug in your laptop and do some work inside!

These are the first five places that I thought of. If you liked this blog post and want more in the future, be sure to let me know! What’s your favorite cafe?

3 Years

IMG_2471

Hey everyone!

About five minutes ago, I clicked on here and was notified that today marks three years of Emily’s Edge! Ahhhh!!!

I wanted to tell you guys thank you SO much for an amazing three years of blogging! You all already know how much I love fashion and writing. Emily’s Edge has become such a big part of me and has opened up a world of self-discovery and pure joy.

I can’t believe it’s already been three years. I know it sounds stereotypical, but it feels like I started this blog just yesterday but also ages ago.

I can’t express my gratitude enough, but just know that I’m thankful for each and every one of you that reads, views, and shares this blog. I’m always filled with so much happiness when I’m told that Emily’s Edge means something to YOU guys. That’s super special, and always will be super special.

Three years down and more to go. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

All the love as always,

-Emily Berrol

As you guys know, I’m obsessed with layering jewelry. I’m always wearing my stacks of rings, and chances are that I also have some necklaces and/or bracelets on. However, there’s a few bracelets in particular that I’ve been reaching for lately, and I decided I would show them to you! Maybe it will even inspire your own stack for the summer.

Tai Braided Stone Bracelet: I’ve had this bracelet for so long, but it’s still one of my favorites. It’s the perfect piece to have in your jewelry collection because it looks so beautiful on its own but also layered with other pieces. I love that it’s also adjustable because you can make it fit perfectly (for someone with an abnormally small wrist, this is great). The bracelet comes in different colors on the Tai website as well. Side note: I love Tai and all of their pieces. They’re one of my favorite places for jewelry so definitely go and check them out!

Coordinates Bracelet: This bracelet is super special to me. My cousins had this bangle engraved with the coordinates of where they live. It’s really sentimental for me because the location is super special for many different reasons. Besides how meaningful the bracelet is, it looks super cute on and is extremely unique. When I wear it, it reminds me of my family and all of our shared experiences in one of my favorite places. They had this made at one of their local boutiques. However, if you also want a coordinate bracelet made, there are so many different people on Etsy who can make them!

Pink Tourmaline and Gold Beaded Bracelet: Unlike the other two, this is a recent addition to my collection. My mom makes and sells her own jewelry, and this is one of her pieces. It’s a stretchy pink tourmaline and gold beaded bracelet. I love the stones and how well they compliment all of my other bracelets. It’s a super pretty and practically goes with everything.

Do you have any accessories that you wear everyday? Let me know in the comments!

Thank you so much for reading. Hope you loved it!

Welcome back, everyone!

I hope you love the new layout and design of my blog as much as I do. After two and a half years, Emily’s Edge needed to have some updates, not only in layout and design, but also content. I have even more ideas written down that I’m working on writing and getting photos for.

However, when I traveled back to New York last weekend, I knew I had to continue on my New York Diaries series. New York has a special place in my heart, and going there for the second time was a completely new experience!

I actually travelled to Manhattan to look at two schools. Fordham University is my dream college at the moment, so I figured it was time to book another trip and head up there to see the campus. As you can see in the second picture, it is so beautiful. I’m super glad that I got to see it. We’ll have to wait and see if the future takes me to NYC for school. Whether it does or it doesn’t, it will definitely take me back there for even more shopping, quality time with people I love, and amazing restaurants.

While we were there, it actually snowed! Being from Los Angeles, I don’t see snow unless I’m going somewhere cold for a vacation. It actually became too cold for me, and I ended up buying a warmer jacket because my leather one was just not going to do it. (No complaints from me, though. This new teddy jacket is a favorite already, but more on that in another post).

I already miss being able to walk to Urban Outfitters several times a day, the buildings in the city, and being able to really relax and take it all in.

I did so much while I was in New York, and I had such a great time yet again! I did bring my vlog camera with me though, so you’ll get to see even more in my next YouTube video!

There’s so much more content coming your way, and it truly feels so good to be sitting here and writing once again. I hope you guys are having such a great 2018 so far.

Talk to you so, so soon,

Practicing Mindfulness and Happiness in 2018

Hey guys!

I’m writing a bit of a different blog post today, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless. Two very important things in life are mindfulness and happiness. I’ve recently stumbled upon some great activities and books that help promote both of these practices! I’ve been incorporating them into my daily routine and have enjoyed it so much. I want to share them with you, too!

Before I begin, I think setting aside time for all of these is really important. They require you to reflect and think, so it’s best that you have time to do so!

Here’s what I’ve been doing…

  1. Journaling. I’ve always loved journaling, especially because of my love for writing. I got this beautiful pink/rose gold journal for Christmas, and I’ve been making time to write in it frequently. For me personally, I like to write things out. I may know what I have to do in my mind, but writing it all down on paper makes me feel so much more organized. I’ve been setting aside time to write about all different things in this journal, such as to-do lists, goals, blog ideas, etc. It’s been great for organizing all of my thoughts. In addition to this, I’ve been using these planner stickers from Ban.do. I love sticking them in my journal! They vary from positive sayings to stickers that say rent due, doctors appointment, etc. They’re a perfect way to make journaling even more fun if you don’t already enjoy it.
  2. Gratitude Lists. The act of practicing gratitude is so important in your daily life. This little gratitude jotter book has lists where you can fill out what you’re thankful for each day. I personally really love this, and I think that with constant practice, you’ll notice a big impact on your life. Not only will this make you feel happy, but it will put things in your life into perspective.
  3. 52 Lists for Happiness. This book has a list that you can fill out each week for one year. It has several different topics that cultivate good thoughts and happy feelings. Like the gratitude list journal, this book allows you to focus on the positive things in your life rather than the negative ones. The book also has suggestions so that you can make proactive decisions when it comes to balancing happiness. Besides this, it has such cute and fun illustrations on each page.

I’m someone who loves to stay positive, so setting aside time to write and do these activities is a must, especially for 2018. I’m feeling really confident for the new year, and I hope you are too!

There’s going to be lots more posts in 2018, so get ready!

Here’s what I’m showing:

Update: Where I’ve Been, YouTube, Etc.

A little picture from one of my Youtube videos.

Hey everyone!

So as you have probably noticed, I’ve been MIA for the past few weeks. However, despite the fact that I’ve been absent, I’ve been working on even more content for you!

During the past few months, I have been thinking about creating a YouTube channel as an extension of Emily’s Edge. After getting a camera and filming some videos, I finally did it!

I hope you enjoy my YouTube channel as much as I do. I’ve been having a lot of fun filming videos, and the comments I’ve received so far are amazing. I’m so grateful to have all of your support.

Although I am uploading frequently to YouTube, I will 100% keep blogging. I love sitting down and writing about what I love, and I know you guys enjoy it, too.

I’m super excited to start 2018 while running both my blog and YouTube channel. I have lots of new blog posts and videos coming your way!

If you would like to see my YouTube videos, the link is HERE.

Thank you all so much for the support in 2017! It’s been a great year, and I can’t wait to see what greater, bigger things 2018 has in store for Emily’s Edge.

Lots of love and Happy New Year,

Emily Berrol
