Makeup Monday-NARS Climax

It’s Makeup Monday and today it’s all about my latest and greatest find…NARS Climax mascara. So I was walking around the makeup department at Bloomingdales last week with the hopes of finding a great mascara. There are so many incredible makeup brands at Bloomingdales so it took me a little while to find the right product. I went from counter to counter until I ended up at NARS and sampled their latest mascara, Climax. OMG! It’s an incredible mascara that delivers major volume but at the same time, it’s still lightweight and doesn’t smudge or clump. Your lashes are guaranteed to reach their climax with this mascara!

The Perfect Look for a Coffee Date

Where am I off to you ask!? Ahhh, getting a cup of coffee of course! Ok so I have a question for you all. When should I stop drinking ice coffee and switch to hot?!? Is there some sort of unspoken rule? Is the pumpkin spice late as good as everybody says it is? Love my new coffee adventures! Fall is that fun time of the year where you can wear a big cozy sweater but still wear comfy slides. It’s not quite time for a jacket but a heavy sweater will do the trick! I love this one from Free People but they just sold out of this color. No worries, there are other fab colors available here!

Plaid Please!

When each fall rolls around, I’m always thinking of easy ways to update my wardrobe. Adding in a few pieces here and there is the best way to freshen up my old faithfuls from last year. This year, I am loving this plaid blazer. It’s a great look for work or in my case, the perfect upgrade to my trusty jean jacket. Remember, fall is all about layering and this piece is ideal for just about any occasion. Oh, and I can’t forget to tell you about my new favorite patent loafers! They are made by Vionic and BEYOND comfortable. Nothing better than chic and happy feet!

Makeup Monday – Shower Time Must haves

It’s makeup monday and today I want to tell you about the products I like to use on my skin while in the shower. Colder weather is on its way which means it’s time to start moisturizing your skin! Nobody wants to have crocodile skin this winter. I love using L’Occitane almond shower oil and their shea butter lotion in the shower. These products work wonders and don’t leave your skin greasy or oily, just soft and supple. Continue Reading

Dot Luxury – Chinatown’s Hidden Gems

This summer, a girlfriend of mine told me about a perfect beach read called “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan. Have you heard of it!? lol Well…three books and a movie later, I am obsessed with not only the series but also the whole Asian culture! After seeing the movie, I started thinking about how much fun it would be to spend the day in Chinatown, NYC and explore all it has to offer. I had always heard that Chinatown has so many hidden gems so I asked around and did some research to find the best places to visit. I spent an entire Saturday walking around Chinatown to scope out these places and am so excited to share my favorite spots with you! Read the entire article on Dot Luxury!

Lady in a Red Wrap Dress

This lady in red says comfy is always the best way to go! A long wrap dress that’s flattering yet chic is always at the top of my list.Love this dress because the fabric doesn’t wrinkle too easy and it’s a great year-round go-to. Pair it with slides to dress it down or pumps for a night out! Either way, you’ll feel great! Oh, and this dress runs a little big so I would size down if you’re not sure what size to order. (For reference I am wearing a Small).

*This is another great option if this style is no longer available in your size.

Waterline Square- Living in the City!

In my 10+ years living in NYC, I have always lived downtown. As my kids get older, my priorities have changed I have been looking for a building with more space, amenities and greenery. I had heard about the luxurious condominiums of Waterline Square, located right by the Hudson River, and had to check them out for myself. Wow! When I say luxurious, I mean luxurious! I recently toured the property and couldn’t believe all of the incredible amenities that these elegant buildings have to offer. Living in NYC definitely has its perks but at the same time, I often miss living near greenery. Well, Waterline Square will soon have its own park, which will encompass nearly three acres. The park will be fully equipped with cascading water features, sculptural fountains, beautiful pathways and much more. Imagine living in a beautiful high-rise, steps away from Columbus Circle and Midtown, yet you are still able to take your kids to play in the park located at the bottom of your building. You really get the best of both worlds! Continue Reading
