Liebster Love

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been slightly out of it the past few weeks, but life has been a crazy mix of friends and academics. I’ve recently moved back to my beloved New York City, where I’ve felt like a tourist again. From orientation, a new campus and visiting old favorites, it’s been very easy to get sucked up into the bubble that is NYC. However, today, I got an amazing surprise from a fellow blogger who nominated me for a Liebster award! Here are the rules –

Earlier simply a west coast phenomenon, it soon expanded to New York City, and they also have several locations around the world, including Egypt, the UK and the Philippines. Pinkberry’s claim to fame is its delicious frozen yogurt.
