Styling my favorite glasses!

8.19.2016


I've worn glasses since I was 8 years old. I still remember going to the eye doctor and getting my first pair. There were so many to choose from! I would have spent hours and hours just picking out a pit of my parents didn't hurry me along. I was so excited when Cohen's reached out to me to style a few of their on-trend glasses. I went to the store in Flatiron and had that same feeling as when I was a little girl picking out frames. It was so hard to choose! I decided on two pairs; round tortoise frames from Ray Ban and an oversized pair from Miu Miu with gorgeous gem detailing on arms. I styled one casual look for the tortoise frames and one more feminine outfit for the black pair. 

The tortoise pair from Ray Ban have an adorable nerdy vibe to them so I styled them with a simple back-to-school outfit. The black v neck, denim skirt and white oxfords have a schoolgirl vibe that highlights the tortoise frames. 

For the chic black pair from Miu Miu I wore a girly gingham dress with red bow pumps. I love the oversized look of these glasses which balances the bling. You could wear these glasses to a cocktail party - the gems almost feel like extra jewelry. Which pair is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

The Perfect Ring

8.15.2016

Every girl dreams of that special day when her prince charming asks for her hand in marriage. I can't deny it, even I think about it from time to time. Like most girls, I have a wedding Pinterest board and fantasize about that special day when a guy gets down on one knee and proposes. When ArtCarved asked me to partner and pick a few of my favorite dream engagement rings, I couldn't help but say yes. I chose three distinctive styles to highlight different shapes, sizes and styles. So I decided to get all gussied up to highlight the beauty of each of these rings. The first ring I chose a floral inspired diamond engagement ring in a beautiful rose gold finish. In my mind this was the most traditional ring and it actually reminded me of my mom's engagement ring, which I've always loved. The shape is like a rose coming into bloom! For the second ring I chose the Avril, a double halo engagement ring with both a rose gold and white gold finish finish. This is my favorite of the rings and I know I couldn't say "no" to this one! The shape is more modern but I love the mixed metals. For my last choice I actually picked a set of three mix-and-match stackable rings. I love the intricate detail laying of these rings that feels like flowers and lace on your finger! It was so much fun dressing up and dreaming of my special day. It's good to know what type of ring you're interested in so you can make sure to drop the right hints, if you know what I mean. Special thanks to ArtCarved for letting me live my engagement ring fantasy, if even just for one day! 

On turning 26

8.09.2016



The day has come. It's August 9, 2016 and I am officially 26 years old. I love birthdays. I've always loved birthday since I was little kid. One of my most memorable birthdays was when I turned six and I had and Aladdin and Jasmine impersonators come to my house in California. I think another year I had Pocahontas, too. But now I'm all grown up and the parties are a little different. This past weekend we threw a cookout in my friends front yard complete with hot dogs, hamburgers and watermelon margaritas )VLOG ENG / VLOG FRE! This past year has been incredible to say the least. Last year in August I took a leap of faith and quit my full-time job as a social media manager at Origins, an Estée Lauder brand. I decided to dedicate myself to this blog, my YouTube channels, and Instagram. It was such a scary decision, leaving a steady salary at a job I really loved to pursue one I love even more. In my 25th year I moved apartments (again), fell in love, traveled around the world, lost 15 pounds and truly came to know myself better. Change can be hard. Learning to work independently was a huge struggle. I missed the camaraderie of going into a job everyday, chatting with coworkers and working on big projects. I realized it can be hard and lonely to travel alone sometimes. But every change, every challenge was for the better. I'm so excited to see where 26 will take me.

Laughing with Loft

7.29.2016

Top & Skirt c/o Loft. Boots: (similar)

I absolutely love watching movies outside so I was super excited when Loft asked me to be a part of their #LOLmovies series at Solar One! Loft is screening great movies for free in celebration of women in film all summer! Gerry and I headed to the water to catch "When Harry Met Sally" - one of my favorite romantic comedies! I wore my new Loft outfit: a sheer floral blouse with an adorable pink miniskirt. Once we arrived we ate some delicious pies from the Neapolitan Pizza truck and enjoyed live music by Lake Ruth. The movie started just after the sun went down after a gorgeous sunset on the East River. Everyone was laughing, especially during Meg Ryan's infamous "I'll have what she's having scene." It's such a great movie! If you're in the city I highly recommend RSVP'ing for the upcoming films, including "Pretty in Pink!"

Festival Style

7.26.2016

 This summer I had the chance to attend two incredible music festivals - Governor's Ball and Panorama NYC. Both festivals took place close to home at Randall's Island Park just a quick ride over the bridge. Here's a look at my outfits for 3 days of Gov Ball & 3 days at Panorama!
For Governor's Ball day one I went sexy! I loved rocking a fitted dress & western booties {dress, bag & boots}
Day Two of Gov Ball I wore one of my favorite outfits - a two-piece gingham set from BooHoo {top & skirt}
Unfortunately the third day of Governor's Ball was cancelled but I donned by day three outfit and jumped in puddles instead! {Body, shorts & belt}
Day One of Panorama I opted for a romper to beat the heat {Romper & kerchief}

Day two of Panorama was even hotter so I opted for this strappy onesie & western style boots! {Romper, belt & boots


Day three I spent frolicking with my bestie Noelle of Noelle's Favorite Things. I wore a white off-the-shoulder dress, western belt & boots! {Dress, belt, kerchief & boots}
