Spring has sprung in NYC. So I broke out my favorite pair of white jeans to celebrate.
The flowers are in bloom in Bryant Park.
There wasn’t a cloud in the sky over Freedom Tower.
I like to admire photos of sunny New York my boyfriend’s Mom took years ago that currently hang in our apartment.
New York Bridal Week has once again arrived! So it’s no wonder that my boyfriend is freaking out a little with every bridal market show I attend. In October, I ventured over to Penthouse 45 for the first ever presentation of the new Isabelle Armstrong bridal line. After such a gorgeous introduction, I couldn’t wait to see the next collection. With modern twists on classic ball gowns including pink accents and contemporary beading, the latest bridal couture collection by Isabelle Armstrong did not disappoint. This lovely collection was once again shown at Penthouse 45 overlooking the always breathtaking Midtown skyline.
It’s been well over a decade since I crossed the boarder into Canada. So when my cousin decided to have her bachelorette party in Montreal, I was totally there. I’m kind of hidden in the group shot above. So trying to find me might be like playing “Where’s Waldo?” The city of Montreal is fab. Between the old buildings and everyone speaking French, it kind of feels like you’re in a small European country totally obsessed with hockey.
Since what happens on a bachelorette weekend, obviously stays on a bachelorette weekend, here are some fun photos I took of the city and girly festivities in between drinking and debauchery.
Okay, I can explain! This is “Montreal Barbie” a.k.a. the drunk friend the bride to be had to find every morning after we hid her the night before. If you have bachelorette party coming up, I highly recommend playing this game.
If I could do anything in the world, my first choice would be to spend my days coming up with names for nail polish colors and my nights getting spa treatments. I have some amazing names already in my head which include “A Weekend with the Kennedys,” ”Suddenly Fabulous,” and “Classy Reality Star.” So I’m pretty serious about this.
Whenever I go to the nail salon, I choose my color for the name just as much as the color itself. So when I discovered a stunning blue by Essie called “Butler Please” I knew that had to be the one. Aside from the fab name, what I love best about this color is that it’s perfect for both spring and fall in that it’s dark and mysterious all while possessing pretty pastel qualities. In other words, I’m obsessed!
In the process of doing some much-needed spring cleaning, I went through my jewelry box and discovered a bunch of hidden treasures. The pearl necklace pictured above is from the Venezuelan island of Margarita where I’ve been many times with my family. It is also known as “La Isla de las Perlas” or the “Island of the Pearls” because of all the beautiful pearls they produce. I also found…
