C 21 Spring Break

For all New Yorkers, Century 21 is an iconic department store located in downtown Manhattan. Although there are a few locations, the Flagship store can be found in the heart of the Financial District. If you’re anything like me, you visit the store at least once a week to check in on their latest sales and spectacular finds. Many people don’t realize that Century 21 is pretty much a one-stop-shop. You can find everything you need or want, whether it be makeup, perfume, clothing or a new eyeglass prescription. How convenient is that?!? Continue Reading


Easter Brunch- Dot Luxury

Easter is one of my favorite times of the year! When I was growing up, I especially loved it because it meant my birthday was right around the corner. I have the best memories of my whole family coming over to my parent’s house; it was a weekend filled with food, fun, lots of laughter and of course, the traditional Easter egg hunt. Now that I am all grown up and have a family of my own, we have started our own yearly traditions. Living in the city is a bit different than growing up in Farmington, Connecticut, so needless to say, our Easter Sunday is a little less traditional than what I experienced growing up. With that being said, we started our own traditions and I wouldn’t have it any other way!Check out Dot Luxury to read more about my favorite Brunch spots in NYC.

Cruise Control

Have you ever been on a cruise? It feels like everyone has gone on one; your parents, your grandparents, maybe your neighbor took their kids on a Disney Cruise last year…but if you’re anything like me, you haven’t actually been motivated to go on one! I wanted to share my experience with you all because I had SO much fun and I am officially hooked on cruises. Last year, I was chosen to be an “O Mag insider” for Oprah Magazine. I am one of fifty people from around the country who has the opportunity to test new products before they hit the market as well as share some of the latest Oprah Magazine trends! O Magazine chose be and five other ladies to attend the O Magazine “Adventure of a Lifetime” cruise with Holland America. Continue Reading

New York Fashion Week has come and gone, leaving a footprint of the latest fall fashion trends for 2018. The highlight of every February in NYC is, of course, Fashion Week.

Dot Luxury- Oscar Party

And the Oscar goes to…

I LOVE Oscar Night! I used to throw an elegant Oscar party every year, which included champagne, delicious hors d’oeuvres and ballets for my guests to fill out. It was my yearly party where we spent the night enjoying the Oscars in our black tie attire. Just because you may not be attending the Academy Awards, why not make the night just as glamorous and festive? Read about my party on Dot Luxury.
