8 Summer-Ready Negative Space Manis


I’ll admit I pretty stubborn when it comes to beauty trends. I don’t jump on any bandwagon easily, but lately I’ve been OB-SESSED with negative space manicures. They’re so chic and sophisticated! Nail art is usually so bizarre or complicated I stay away from it completely, but this new trend is something that is crazy-easy and much easier than it looks. You simply need a nail polish (or two), top coat, stickers or striping tape, and that’s it! Whether you like a graphic black-and-white look or a more cheery color palette there’s bound to be a negative mani you’ll love!

OOTD: Happy Birthday, Buttercup

This weekend I spent celebrating my birthday in Brooklyn. The weather wasn’t the best, but my dress made up for the lack of sunshine. I loved this dress the moment I saw it. The pleats. The Lace. The Buttercup Yellow. What’s not to love? I wasn’t going to keep a little gray skies and cool temps from wearing on my birthday. It was the right choice for a night of Mexican food under the Brooklyn Bridge!

Combat Allergy Face With ZYRTEC’s Beauty Kit (Giveaway)

This post is sponsored by ZYRTEC®

If there’s one thing I can count on when spring rolls around is that my allergies will be in full swing. For many of us, the green grass and pretty blooms also mean itchy eyes and non-stop sneezing. More bad news: Experts say allergies will be worse this year due to the mild, wet winter causing premature blooming, which means I can pretty much kiss my social life away if I don’t take my allergy medication.

The good news: My allergies have been under control ever since I discovered ZYRTEC®. It’s been a welcome relief especially when you feel like you’re in a lifelong battle against Mother Nature. That’s why I’m so excited that the makers of ZYRTEC® have partnered with Celebrity Makeup Artist, Jamie Greenberg, and leading lifestyle site Gilt.com, to introduce the first-ever ALLERGY FACE® Beauty Kit!

OOTD: Mother's Day

Mother’s Day was beyond special yesterday. The morning started off with hugs and kisses, home-made cards, flowers, and a lovely spread for breakfast prepared by my two favorite people. Then we met up with my in-laws for a dinner in Little Italy, and had one of the BEST Italian meals I’ve had in a very long time. UGH. IT WAS SO GOOD! (If you know me, you know that pasta is the way to my heart). THEN if that wasn’t enough, the fellas also took us Serendipity 3 for dessert, where I had a love affair with a Strawberry Fields Sundae. I know it was wrong, but it felt so GOOD. Yesterday, couldn’t have been more perfect, and just want to give my hubby a quick shout-out for showering me with gifts and making me feel like a queen for a day!

To celebrate the day, I wore a black and white asymmetrical peplum top. If it seems familiar, you probably saw the green one I wore for Easter. (I loved it so much I went back and got another style!) It’s completely sold out online, but you can try finding it in-stores. To complete the outfit, I paired it with a black cardigan and heels and threw my pink Kate Spade bag in the mix for a pop of color. Hope my fellow moms had a great Mother’s Day too!
