I have been dealing with skin issues my whole life. Yes, I was on accurate in my early 20’s…During my early modeling days, my face was a mess. I had different makeup artists working on me every day, I had a poor diet and tons of travel reeked havoc on my poor skin. Continue Reading

Fall Favorites from Elie Tahari

I had the pleasure of meeting Elie Tahari at one of his fashion week presentations about two years ago and have been a fan of his clothing ever since. I was so excited to see his collection at Bloomingdales, my favorite department store in NYC! I was on Bloomingdales.com doing some of my fall shopping and per usual, oversized knits and leather were at the top of my list. I came across this outfit while browsing through the latest arrivals from Elie Tahari and fell in love with both this leather skirt and merino wool sweater. Continue Reading

Make Your Eyes Pop!

It’s Makeup Monday and today it’s all about the eyes! There are certain eyeshadow colors that make your eyes pop. Since I have blue eyes, blue eyeshadow is my new go-to. I used to be nervous to wear vibrant colors, (i’ve always been more of a smokey eye girl), but I recently realized what a difference a color makes!We all have at least one of those eyeshadow palettes that have a variety of colors. Let’s be honest…how many of you have bought one of those multi-color palettes just because you liked one specific color? I’m 100% guilty of it. Well ladies and gents, it’s time to get a little adventurous and start experimenting with the other colors in those palettes. Continue Reading

Donna Karan Fall Trends

We all know Bloomingdales is one of my favorite “go-to” stores for beauty and fragrance but lately, I’ve been spending more time shopping for chic and trendy outfits. The Bloomingdales flagship store is conveniently located four subway stops from my apartment so it is the ideal place to shop. I was walking through the women’s department and came across the latest collection from Donna Karan. First of all, let me start of by saying I am a huge fan of Donna Karan and have attended a few of her New York Fashion Week shows. I am always impressed by how she is able to keep her collections looking classy yet trendy at the same time. Continue Reading

Fall Scent: Cartier Carat

We all know that Bloomingdales is one of my all-time favorite “go-to” stores for beauty, trends and of course, lunch at Forty Carrots.

Fall is here, which means it is time to swap out my summer signature scent for a bolder fall fragrance. I visited the perfume counters and tried a number of fragrances but couldn’t decide on one until I smelled the latest perfume from Cartier, Cartier Carat! Continue Reading

The Cardigan

The leaves are slowly starting to change, there is a slight chill in the air so I think it’s safe to say that fall has officially arrived. This is the time of year where it’s not quite coat weather but it’s ideal for oversized cardigans. Cardigan and oversized sweater season has officially arrived! Below are some of my favorite finds so far this season:

Mad for Plaid

Mad for Plaid this fall and every fall! I just can’t get enough! The best part about fall is the change in season, colors and the need for booties, leather and suede! Plaid is all the rage this season and I am not mad about it, I’m mad for it! This dress is ideal for fall weather because the fabric is heavy enough for a chilly day but also perfect for a sunny fall day. Layer this look with a suede jacket and you are ready to wear one of the hottest fall trends of 2018! Below are some of my other favorite plaid items:  Continue Reading

Stay Moisturized

It is beyond important to keep you skin hydrated, no matter what time of year! Although it seems as if winter is the harshest time of year to stay moisturized, you may be surprised to find out that summertime can also wreak havoc on your skin. Whether it be from long days in a chlorinated pool or excessive air conditioning, your skin can easily dry out during the summer months. I personally like to use L’Occitane’s almond milk concentrate moisturizer on a daily basis. It has a very light fragrance and keeps your skin soft and supple. I also use their almond oil body wash in the shower, which is absolutely incredible! I didn’t know much about L’Occitane products until recently and am beyond impressed by the quality. Definitely check out some of my favorite products below: Continue Reading
