Friday’s Denim

September is in full swing and thank goodness this lovely weather is still holding up which means I am going to wear my shorts while I still can! Before we know it, it’s going to be all about the sweater weather. Today, I am throwing back to my summer in LA. This picture was taken while I was spending the day in Venice on Abbot Kinney.

I used to live in Venice and I am so in love with this area! It’s changed sooo much since Josh and I lived there nearly 10 years ago eekkk. The shopping and restaurants are amazing and the street is filled with super cool graffiti (you all know how much I love graffiti for a great photo op). Haven’t been to Venice?!? On your next trip to LA make sure to add it to your list! It’s the perfect way to spend a day (if you can find parking) LOL!

Animal Instincts for Fall

Sadly, summer has come to an end but I am happy to say that fall fashion has arrived! About halfway through summer, I start my fashion forecasting, browsing through magazines, looking for fall inspiration in order to stay ahead of the trends.

To my delight, the Bloomingdale’s catalogue arrives in the mail every summer just in time to start my fall shopping. It’s the perfect way to transition out of summer and into fall, just in time for New York Fashion Week.

Mascara Secrets

Making up your mind about mascara is a tough one! Do you want thicker lashes? Longer lashes? Darker lashes? Well, after trying just about every mascara on the market, I decided I want longer, thicker and darker lashes, oh my! Ha! But can I actually get it all!? Yes, yes I can!

The Farm Stand

Ahh the summer farm stand! It’s something that I grew up with in Connecticut. We looked forward to fresh veggies and corn every summer and pretty much ate it everyday! I don’t hide the fact that I DON’T cook BUT I can boil water and the good news is I can put together a salad. Thank goodness Josh is a master on the grill so we manage just fine! It’s definitely easier for me to put together a meal during the summer. There are farm stands all over the Hamptons! In East Hampton/ Amagansett area my favorite farmstead is Balsam Farms !! Always the best of everything, including corn, pies and fresh flowers! The best place for a quick breakfast sandwich and cup of coffee is Mary’s Marvelous. For pre-made foods, Round Swamp is the best. They have fresh summer salads, pies…you name it. They have great things to take to a dinner party! For fresh fish, Stuarts Seafood is my go-to, it’s a little off the beaten path. The best thing about summer at the beach is the dress code! Pretty much anything goes, jean cut off’s, a maxi dress, a beach cover up! Casual chic at its finest! Have fun this summer!

Soft Washed Eyelids

Soft washed eyelids is all about subtle shadow colors that bring out your eye color. I tend to always want to go dark on the eyes but for this time of the year, its nice to soften up the colors. Think pretty and feminine! Use light shades such as these to create that perfect soft washed glow! I personally love this palette by Bobbi Brown. It’s a great price point and such a perfect variety of colors!

Eye Patches aren’t just for Pirates

Ahoy mates!!! That’s right, these aren’t your typical pirate-like eye patches. lol…sorry I had to. (Too much coffee for me while writing this post)! Every now and again, we all need a little under eye pick me up! I like to use these easy to apply, easy to peel off De-Tox hydrating gel eye patches. They are ideal for when you are traveling or need some under-eye rejuvenation before an event. These eye patches are cucumber scented and smell so fresh while having an awesome cooling effect. Check out some of my favorite eye-patches below:

A Summer Dress

Normally I would say summer in the city but in this case, summer out of the city is the way to go! Have you ever visited NYC in the summer!? As much as I love my city, it is truly miserable in July and August. Hot, steamy, sweaty… not cute! Soooo most New Yorkers like myself, head out of town. This has been one of the best summers yet filled with traveling adventures! I loved every minute of our travels as a family even though I feel like all I have done is pack and re-pack. The good thing is that all of the clothing that I bought in the spring has proven to be worthy of all of this awesome travel! This date night, I am wearing this amazing dress I bought at Nordstrom in the spring by Elan. Believe it or not, it’s actually a swim coverup!
