The past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind! On May 13th I left for Jamaica with Small Girls PR followed by a one-day trip to Boston then 48 hours in Las Vegas. As for Jamaica, I spent four lovely day at the Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall in Montego Bay with the Small Girls Gang. The resort was an all-inclusive (my first ever) and I'm officially obsessed. Between the swim-up pool bar, jerk chicken shack on the beach and French crepe stand, I really was happy as a clam. If you're looking for a great all-inclusive in Jamaica, I highly recommend it.
Special thanks to Kelly from Mimosas and Manhattan for taking these photos. Check out her blog here.

I love Coney Island. A quick trip from the city, Coney Island has a unique charm that brings you back to another time. Noelle and I Took a day trip and spent the day shooting photos and enjoying the boardwalk. For my outfit, I wanted to throw back to some of the wonderful nostalgia that is Coney Island, while keeping it modern. I love the set from Yumi Kim that is a crop top this a crop-top/bustier and long flowy culottes (a first for me!) I can't wait to share more of the photos we shot with different looks! If you're interested in visiting Coney Island it's extremely accessible by both the Q & F trains into Brooklyn. It's the perfect day trip!
There are so many places in France that look just like a fairytale. Stunning castles, beautiful architecture, thousand year old churches and a charm that never fails. Rue Cremieux, a tiny one-way street is located in the unassuming 12th arrondissement. The street lined with colorful, terraced homes that look like a dream. This beautiful place deserve it beautiful outfit so I picked out this creamy white dress from Maison Jules. The all-over lace overlay is romantic but modern with a classic fit and flare silhouette. It was absolutely perfect for twirling down this beautiful block. I've been working with Maison Jules on an exciting series of videos called "Am I French yet?" Each video cover the different topic like French wine, shopping in Paris, and even flower arranging. See all the videos here plus photos and how-to's here.
There's nothing that makes me more happy than the start of spring! I was born in Southern California and my body just does not like the cold. Every winter in New York is a test of my endurance and love for this city. The weather has been a bit all over the place but we have had a few beautiful days and this is my new favorite spring look. I'm not usually one for shorts but I've been so proud of my progress from working out and adapting healthier diet and I feel like it really shows! I picked up these floral shorts from the brand Finders Keepers at one of my favorite boutiques that's also an adorable coffee shop called The Vale in Williamsburg. (get 'em here for $80!) I love the pattern and the high waisted shape, which is super flattering! I paired the shorts with a black knit crop top, my favorite new leather jacket that I splurged on in Paris and scalloped leather pumps. I shot these photos with Noelle in front of one of my favorite bodegas in my neighborhood. I love picking up fresh flowers or cute plants from here. What's your go-to look for spring?
