R.I.P. David Bowie

This week the world was shocked by the surprising death of David Bowie. When a celebrity who always seemed larger than life dies, it’s easy to start contemplating your own mortality. While none of us are immune to death, David Bowie’s passing has reminded me just how important it is to leave a legacy.

There is no doubt that David Bowie left behind a powerful, colorful and meaningful legacy. As a musician, producer, painter and actor, he showed us all that we were meant to stand out. Every day so many of us feel the pressure to fit in or do exactly what we’re expected to do when all we really want to do is color outside the lines. Thanks to Bowie, it’s okay to keep coloring.

I never knew it before, but it turns out that David Bowie lived just two blocks away from my office in Soho. All week fans have been lining up outside his apartment to leave flowers and pay their respects. It’s amazing to see just how many people Bowie influenced without ever having met them. I guess that’s the real power of art.

A Pop of Color!

I love all the colorful street art around the city. So when I saw this beautiful mural in Soho, I thought it would go perfectly with my favorite casual little black dress that I got a couple years ago at Old Navy. Having always been one for extremes, I simply can’t get enough of neon on black.

How to style a little black dress

Just like the bright details make the painting magnificent, I topped off what started as a very basic look with my signature Kendra Scott Naomi Two Finger Ring and my favorite summer sweater that I actually got at Cosco.

If you’re wondering about the iPhone photo, yes, I totally have a cell phone case with my chandelier logo. My boyfriend got it for me for Christmas and I love it!

Many Thanks to Rituals Cosmetics

Rituals Cosmetics

Last Friday afternoon Rituals Cosmetics unexpectedly made my day. I was halfway through what ended up being a 13 hour work day and was taking a coffee break at a nearby Starbucks. After getting my coffee, I walked by two girls giving out full sized bottles of Rituals Zensation Organic Rice Milk & Cherry Blossom foaming shower gel. It was almost as if they knew that I was short on body wash and needed an additional pick-me-up on top of the hot coffee I was carrying.

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to Rituals Cosmetics. I absolutely love the smell and foaming sensation of this body wash. It’s amazing the way it makes my shower smell like a spa and how the gel changes into foam the moment is touches water. Thanks again Rituals for proving to me once again that NYC is always full of surprises!

Macarons in the Window

Laduree

With their bright colors and fancy packaging, macarons by far one of the most stylish sweets. So it’s no wonder they’re at almost every fashion event alongside cupcakes and champagne. When I came across the famous Ladurée luxury French bakery on West Broadway, I was hypnotized by the beautiful sweets in the window. Judging from this display, these double-decker macarons that sell at a rate of 15,000 a day, are enough to make any girl feel like they are in the company of Marie Antoinette or Blair Waldorf.
