April’s Unexpected Hiatus

If you follow along here or even more often on Instagram then you know that March was and April has been a bit of an whirlwind.  A curve ball visit to Dallas, a significant amount of time spent in California (living and loving my west coast life a bit too much!) followed by a quick trip back to NYC then off I came to Europe. Now two weeks into my trip here and life is nothing short ...

Good Bye States! Hello Europe!

I often find myself shying away from traveling to cities I’ve frequented in the past, however when it comes to Paris and London all rules go out the window. These cities have captivated me each and every time in a way very few places have. As I prepare to embark on a three week European excursion with visits to both cities I find myself eager to swing by a few of my favorite spots but ...

Two Nights At: Nizuc Resort, Serenity in Cancun

If you’ve noticed I’ve spent a significant amount of time in Mexico this year - particularly so right outside of Cancun in Playa Mujeres to help my little sister plan her wedding.

One night At: The Embassy Row Hotel

For New Yorker’s, DC is a quick shot south. A relatively simple 4.5 hour drive and that’s with a break. I had not been to D.C. in over four years so was excited to head back down to see some friends and clients (have to love knocking out both work and play in one trip!) With only one night in D.C. I wanted to make sure I was staying somewhere a) conveniently located to everything I ...

Flawless in a Flash with Clarins

I, just like each one of you, is a crazy busy, harried individual running around trying to keep calm and cool while doing a million things. More so I want to look like I actually have it totally together even when I’m in a rush and might not. You know if you fall in this category, often leaving a phone behind or one eye of mascara done only to realize it an hour and a ...

5 Tips on Buying Vintage

Let it be known that I did not go out and purchase this dreamy, glamorous beyond belief vintage fur. No, this guy was a lovely "hand me down" from my ridiculously cool, stylish mom. However I've had my fair share of vintage shopping, I love going into a shop with a million hidden gems just waiting to be pulled out and rework in a new way. The attention to detail and the actual personal handwork ...
