It may not be spring yet, but flowers are on my mind. Whether you’re giving them as a gift or you’re buying them for yourself, a house can feel very empty without some fresh and beautiful flowers. They automatically brighten up a room. I have found a few flower shops in various cities around the country that have bouquets I absolutely love.
Vanities are a key element in one’s bedroom or bathroom. It’s my favorite piece of furniture and I think doing one’s makeup is not complete unless you’re doing it at a vanity. From traditional styles to modern to vintage and many options in between, there is definitely one that will suit your interior design personality and needs. Some of my personal favorites below.
I have found my new favorite dresses. Somehow I just more recently found out about the incredible clothing line, Ali Ro, even though it has been around since 2007. If you’re looking for dresses that fall into the categories of stylish, contemporary, on-trend yet sophisticated, this would be the perfect line for you, as well. I already picked out some styles that I’d like to add to my wardrobe immediately.Leave a Comment
Women LOVE makeup. It’s something that many can’t get enough of. I know people that could spend an entire day at the various makeup counters in a store, learning about new products and testing them. Yes, an entire day. A favorite pastime of many is getting their makeup done – whether it be for an event, a wedding, or even just for fun on a Saturday afternoon. Michelle Coursey, NYC based celebrity and editorial makeup artist, has given me a deeper look into the world of makeup.

Now, I was never a big sneaker fan. I always went by the notion that sneakers should only be worn if working out or doing some sort of physical activity (and I still believe that’s true). However, there are a few types that I think are perfectly fine to wear out and about (and by ‘out and about’ I mean a casual Saturday walking around the city, not to a nice dinner). And, of course, with an appropriate outfit (skinny jeans, casual tee, maybe some layering, cute scarf, accessories…). The below styles give a different meaning to ‘sneakers.’
Friday. Finally. I’ve compiled some items that are going to be extremely crucial for my weekend.
I know it’s been a bit chilly lately (for most of us), but one accessory that can and will always be worn year round is sunglasses, of course. No matter how cold it may get, the sun still comes out, and sunglasses are essential for oh so many reasons. One’s sunglasses collection should consist of all colors and sizes. Don’t stick to the same pair everyday; switch things up. My current favorites below.
The most beautiful (and delicious) pastry out there right now has got to be the Parisien Macaron. For those that know what I’m talking about, I know you agree. For those that don’t, you have really got to jump on this bandwagon immediately. The yummiest macarons I’ve ever had have come from Vendôme. Taryn Garcia, the Executive Pastry Chef + Owner, was sweet enough to answer some questions for me on her incredible business and her delicious pastries.
Blazers are one of those staple items you must have in your closet. It can be thrown on with almost any outfit and add something extra to what you’re already wearing. Throw it over dark skinny jeans, a white tank and some fun jewelry, and it instantly dresses it up. Throw it over a cute summer dress and now it’s a cute spring or fall dress. There are so many ways to wear a blazer and if I had a bigger closet I would probably dedicate one entire section to this necessary article of clothing.
Something I absolutely adore these days is from the website Valsey and Me. They sell sets of mini personalized soaps, which come in a variety of scents (my personal favorite being Milk, Almond, & Honey), colors, and boxes. They don’t need to just be a gift (although they are an affordable and incredible one); I’m going to be buying a set for myself.Leave a Comment
