New In Beauty: Jay Manuel Ultimate Smile Lipstain


“Congratulations, you’re still in the running to become America’s Next Top Model.” Who can forget the entertainment value that was ANTM? It was the fierce model competition that brought us smizing, epic meltdowns, bleached eyebrows and of course Mister and Miss J. Sadly, I stopped watching after cycle 12, but I will always remember the elaborate photo shoots and insane runway shows brought to us by then creative director, Jay Manuel, fondly.

From long-haired faux-fur jackets to layered tulle midis and boxy fringe tops this festive collection is the perfect mix for any occasion. I gathered up some of my favorites below to give you a sneak peek of what’s hitting stores soon.

KidzVuz Back To School Bash Recap


KidzVuz is one of the events I always look forward to every year because I get to bring my daughter. It’s geared towards kids so you know it has to be fun-filled and exciting. She’s a member of their review site which provides a safe moderated space where tweens can share their opinions about tech, toys, books, and more.

OOTD: Summer Whites

If you’ve been following along you know by now that I attended a few events in the city this past week, including the Getting Gorgeous event, which I wrote about here. I will be sharing more pics of the other events I attended, but for now I wanted to show what I wore to them.

I wanted something that would look polished but still comfortable enough to wear while I commuted through the city. It was hot, humid, & rainy, and I literally was trying to keep myself from melting away. I decided on the zipper linen jacket I wore on my Birthday here, a lace tunic top, black pants, and new Kate Spade bag! I’m absolutely in love with it. The outfit wasn’t as easy breezy as I had hoped, but I still managed to make it through the day. Hope you have a great week lovelies!

Getting Gorgeous 2015 Recap


This Wednesday I went into the city for a couple of events including the 2015 Getting Gorgeous event. Fun fact: Getting Gorgeous was the first NYC blogger event I attended a few years back and I absolutely loved it, so I was happy to return and socialize with some of my fave beauty and fashion bloggers for this year’s celebration. (Even if I had to duck out a little early due to back-to-back commitments.)
