As I get older, my skincare regimen and makeup products are increasingly important to me. It’s not just about the quality of the products/ingredients, but it’s also about how effective they are. With a busy schedule, I only want to use products that I love which serve their purpose or at least make me feel better. 🙂 Fortunately, there are so many great beauty products to choose from, and the diversity and quality seems to be improving year after year! This post is a round up of my current favorite skincare and makeup products that I use regularly(mostly daily) and love. See below for my review… Continue Reading →
Hi there! Now that the weather in New York is getting consistently warmer (finally!), I’m so excited to pull out my spring looks! There are so many trends for this season that I love. Of course there are the beautiful pastels that show up every year, but this spring neons make a bold statement. I also love the relaxed power suit (jacket and pants worn separately as well) look and some of the animal prints that are so hot right now. These snakeskin print boots are my current spring trend obsession. THEY are the shoes you need now.
See below for the details on these boots as well as some of my fave pieces to buy for spring. Continue Reading →
Hi! Somehow it’s already mid-March, and I’m still wondering what happened to January and February! I don’t know about you, but this year (so far…) has been going by too fast for me. In part because we got a puppyover the holidays (yay!). Continue Reading →
A collection of feminine looks with a vintage vibe that also incorporates a modern aesthetic, the Jill Stuart fashion line is a brand that I have loved for years. So when Jill Stuart Beauty launched in the U.S. in the Fall of 2018, I was excited to try their products and recently, I did. A few weeks ago, I visited the Jill Stuart Beauty showroom in Soho, NYC to discover the brand… It was everything and more than I expected. 🙂 Continue Reading →
I’m a warm weather person, but I definitely prefer cold weather clothing and accessories. There are just so many more options with fabric, styles, etc. and, of course, layering can get just down right creative as well as practical! It’s really cold in New York (where I live…) right now as I’m writing this post. The winter temps here can extend well into April and even May, so if you’re here or live in a similar climate, now is a great time to update your cold weather looks if you haven’t already. Hopefully, you can take advantage of any post-holiday or late-in-the-season sales.
In this post I am sharing some of my fave winter coats, jackets and cold weather accessories. Fashion-forward as well as functional, these items are available now; but many are selling out fast. Find the pieces you love and fit you well, so they can be worn for the next winter and hopefully several more. 😉 Continue Reading →

Happy Holidays! Hope you had a great week. Below are some of my favorite Beauty Gift Sets to give (and receive!) for the holidays. I have, or at least tried, most of these products, and truly love them. Since most of these gift sets (maybe all…) are special gift items created only for the holiday season, they often sell out quickly. So if you’re shopping for a friend/ family member and not quite sure what to get them or just want to try the beauty gifts for yourself, check these out now before they’re gone. Oh, and don’t forget to scroll down to the end of this post to enter a giveaway to win a $500 Nordstrom E-Gift Card! 🙂 Continue Reading →
