It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m so thankful for all the love I’m feeling. Last night my boyfriend surprised me with roses and champagne. I’m so happy to have him in my life and thankful for all the ways we make each other better people. On top of all the romance, I’m ecstatic to have the love of my family, friends and readers. Happy Valentine’s Day my loves! xoxo
New York Fashion Week has begun and I’m covering the shows! Even the bitter cold couldn’t stop me from striking a pose in front of Lincoln Center.
It’s so cold! Thank goodness for cabs, hot coffee and my wool coat.
Friday morning, I went to see Concept Korea. Here’s one of my favorite looks by Leyii.
Though I don’t usually cover menswear, I loved this psychedelic suit also from Concept Korea by beyond closet by Tae Yong. I’m dying to see my boyfriend in this.
Mongol FW15 by Mongolian fashion designer, Bayarmaa Bayarkhuu, was inspired by traditional Mongolian costume mixed with urban casual inspiration and the entrepreneurial lifestyle. As a modern girl with a taste for the traditional, I absolutely loved seeing this combination on the runway. The jackets and fur details in the collection were impeccable.
It’s that time of year again where it feels like everyone is in love. If you are in love (like me) congratulations. But, if you’re single and spending Valentine’s Day alone, is that really such a bad thing? Of course not. If you can’t be with the one you love, there’s an app for that.
With everything you could be doing, there’s no reason to get caught up in the Valentine’s Day pressure. Here are my top 5 online activities to occupy yourself with on February 14th:
1. iTunes Movie Trailers (app or website)
How better to drown your sorrows or celebrate your celibacy than indulging in some movie trailers? Even if you’ve already read the book, the second “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer is worth watching.
2. Ruby Fortune (app or website)
Sit back with a drink and play the Ladies’ Night game on Ruby Fortune. Nothing adds a little glamour to a night more than some glitzy casino games. You can even have a few of your single girlfriends over for a virtual casino night.
3. Spotify (app or website)
It’s not Spotify itself that will make your night, it’s the playlist you create or search for. Like love songs? How about this little song to melt even a snow queen’s heart:
4. Pizza Navigator (smartwatch app)
Now we’re talking! Pizza Navigator is the ultimate smartwatch app that directs you to the nearest pizzeria. What’s not to love?
5. Wake Up Well (smartwatch app)
Wake Up Well is better suited for February 15th when you may be a little hung over. This app uses the science of sleep to wake you up gently at an optimal time for your sleep cycle ensuring that you aren’t groggy throughout the day. It’s basically an artificial intelligence boyfriend.
In New York City everyone always seems to be wearing black. Though this seemingly eternal trend transcends seasons, it’s most apparent in the winter. Personally, I love wearing black. Not only is it slimming, but it never fails to give you a classically dressy look that can be worn to almost any event or occasion. While it’s fun to play with color, black can take you from the office, to dinner and finally to drinks at the club without ever having to change. After all, what New Yorker has time to change?
