New York Fashion Week Lounge Life: Second Edition

The New York Fashion Week lounges have long been my favorite Fashion Week events. I love using this week as a time to really get to know the brands and bloggers I love. Getting pampered doesn’t hurt either. Yesterday I did all three at the ShopStyle Social House.

Hair stylists from The Glam App did an amazing job on my hair. I don’t get to have curly hair very often. So when I do, I like to take lots of photos. They did a great job on my nails too!

Wandering in Shearling

Bb Dakota Bourne Faux Shearling Jacket

There’s nothing like a good shearling jacket to make city life a little more rustic. While it may look like I’m in the country, I’m actually in Los Angeles rocking the rustic. I just love the sense of adventure in these photos. Adventures can be exciting, but when you really think about it, most of the adventures we go on in life start out scary. So whenever I’m faced with adversity or a challenge I need to overcome, I try to think of it as just another adventure.

On this shabby/chic adventure, I wore a BB Dakota Bourne Faux Shearling JacketBanana Republic Womens New Essential TankWomen’s Joe’s ‘Flawless – Vixen’ Ripped Ankle Skinny JeansKendra Scott Naomi Double Finger Ring, Aldo Marecchia Boots and Vera Bradley Lydia Satchel. Wishing you happiness and success on your next adventure!

My Unbound Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

When my friends at Unbound asked me to put together a list of my favorite Valentine’s Day picks, I jumped at the chance. For those of you not familiar with Unbound, it’s basically Birchbox for the bedroom.

Valentine's Day Gift Guide Unbound

While they have a number of subscriptions to choose from where you can surprise yourself and/or your partner every few months with a curated box of new toys, you also have the option to purchase everything from lingerie to jewelry on their website. Since Unbound donates 6.9% of all profits to nonprofit organizations that support female sexual health and wellness, you can feel twice as good about the goodies you buy.

Without further ado here are some of my most romantic picks for Valentine’s Day 2017:

Chic Boots from Dr. Scholl’s Shoes

When you think of Dr. Scholl’s the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t cute boots. You probably think of the foot insoles or inserts. I recently discovered two pairs of boots from their shoe line that made me think again. Not only are they stylish they are also incredibly comfortable. As a flat footed New Yorker who walks a lot, it shoes like this that make my day.

An Amazing Long Weekend in Los Angeles

Los Angeles Made in LA Wall Fashion Blogger

I don’t really believe in New Year’s Resolutions. But, 2017 is going to be a little different. I recently decided that this is the year that I do everything I’ve always talked about doing. I find that it’s not our ideas that are bad. It’s the fact that we don’t go through with them that stops us from reaching our full potential. So this year I’m making good on those fleeting promises and having the time of my life.

Ever since my friend Kristi from Currentlycrushing.com and I met on Instagram and bonded at Fashion Week, I’ve been talking about visiting her on Los Angeles. A week ago, I finally did. While the weather was surprisingly rainy most of the time, the vibes were good. We had a great time taking photos for our blogs, visiting the pink wall, going to Burke Williams Day Spa, eating delicious Mexican food and going to see the Hollywood sign. We also had coffee at Joan’s on Third and got our nails done at the Can Can Parleur Organic Hand and Foot Spa. One night she even drove me to The Valley so I could see the liquor store where the scene from Clueless where Chef gets robbed in her Alaïa. While New York may have my heart, I’m really feeling L.A. It’s a pretty awesome city and they know it!

Before I book another cross country flight, here’s what I’m wearing. I hit the streets of L.A. in Joe’s ‘Flawless – Vixen’ Ripped Ankle Skinny Jeans, a long red dusterAldo Marecchia BootsVera Bradley Lydia Satchel HandbagKendra Scott ‘Naomi’ Double Finger Ring and my Banana Republic Womens New Essential Tank. Thanks for an amazing weekend Kristi!
