Ever been on a cruise!? If not, give it some serious thought. Cruising is a magical, captivating and thrilling way to travel while still relaxing, yet experiencing culinary delicacies and enjoying professional entertainment.
Ok, normally this post would be about me jumping out of bed and heading to the gym…ha, not so fast (that starts tomorrow). Give yourself a break today and just chill out, relax, stay in bed and binge watch Netflix (I’m currently watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel). You deserve a day to relax, reboot, recharge and get ready for an incredible 2019! Since you’ll be lounging around today, I am going to give you some fun beauty hacks that you can conquer while relaxing.

I am thrilled to announce that I am ahead of the game this year when it comes to the holidays and I actually shot my holiday cards in October! Yup, I finally learned my lesson…get them done early before it’s too cold! No frozen toes or purple lips this year!
Last year, Kingsley was crying because she was so cold and Cash was not having it. This year, an email popped up in my inbox from Minted and acted as the perfect reminder to shoot my holiday cards. I took full advantage of this reminder (and the early bird discount) and planned our shoot ahead of time.
I would love to be that family that dresses to the nines and makes their way all the way to Central Park to get the “perfect shot”. Reality…we just aren’t that family haha! I plan my dress in advance but Josh plans his outfit the same day as the shoot and ends up wearing the same super chic velvet blazer. I think this is the third year he has worn this blazer for our holiday card but what can you do!
Last year, it was so cold that Kingsley ended up wearing a beautiful dress paired with house slippers…she refused to take them off because it was so cold. So needless to say, I learned my lesson and picked a warm day to shoot our card this year. I live in downtown NYC and if you follow my Instagram stories, you probably know by now that I live close to the Freedom Tower and Oculus.
The Oculus has commissioned artists from all the Burroughs of NY to paint parts of the Oculus in cool upbeat graffiti. This year I decided it would be the perfect place to shoot our card! Below is our final choices for the cover of our holiday card and I had to incorporate some silly “reality shots” (naturally pics of my kids fighting between shots).
Each year, I rely on MINTED to print my holiday cards! They never disappoint and it’s extremely easy to use. Last year my mom printed hers through MINTED too! I love sending out holiday cards to our family and friends because I feel like it spreads the joyful spirit! Happy holidays to all of you and good luck with your card shoot! 😉 I highly suggest using MINTED if you are looking for the perfect company to print these pictures!
It’s that time of the year again! My walk to school today was filled with crisp air, colorful leaves and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes (although I must admit I’m having a hard time giving up my iced coffees).
Thanksgiving is around the corner, we are all starting to think about the holidays and you know what that means…shopping lists and gift guides! Each year, I love to be inventive and gift the ones I love something exciting. I have to admit, a lot of the gifts I give are based on Oprah’s Favorite Things!
Today was the day…Amazon announced Oprah’s Favorite Things and I am SO excited!!!! Adam Glassman went on Good Morning America this morning and announced the most coveted list of the year. The best part?!?! I GET TO GO TONIGHT to the unveiling! Woop, Woop!
I am so so thrilled to be asked again to attend this amazing event as an O Magazine Insider and can’t wait to share my experience with you all. I have already peeked at her list on Amazon and wanted to share some of my favorite gifts (so far). Each year, these gifts sell out so quickly so make sure to check them out before they are gone!
