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.
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:

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.
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!
Happy Chinese New Year! The Lunar New Year is here bringing with it the Year of the Rooster. I’ve always wanted to go to a Chinese New Year celebration. I don’t have any plans to do so this year, but in order to get the stars aligned for next year, I took a look at my favorite Chinese New Year limited edition accessories. Wishing you health, wealth, happiness and of course luck!
I always say that spa days are the best days and I couldn’t have been more correct. Burke Williams is absolutely beautiful. We both got amazing blow outs (the style the two of us chose is called Pacific Coast Highway). We also drank champagne, enjoyed the Hampton’s beach house-inspired decor and met with an Alchemist at the Custom Blend Bar for personalized aromatherapy. The aromatherapy I got is called Positively Positive and is composed of lemon, lavender and ylang-ylang. This blend allowed me to bring the positive California vibes back to New York where they are much-needed.
Even if you only get one service, you can totally spend all day at the spa and enjoy the sauna, hot tub or mini services in the Garden Room. So you should totally make a day of it. I personally can’t wait to go back both to the West Coast and to the spa.
