Someone recently asked me for an updated beauty routine post. I realized yesterday that quite a few of my beauty products are currently discounted during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so this seemed like a perfect time for a beauty post. I love microcurrent facial treatments and have had a few over the years.  One day I realized […]

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is not just a great time to buy fashions but also everything you could possibly need for your home.  Bedding, towels, bath accessories, home decor, rugs, tabletop and kitchen…you name it, they have it. It’s also the perfect time to get everything you need for your kids heading off to college […]

The Girl on the Train

07 . 20 . 16

I have a very bad habit of buying books and not reading them. My other bad habit is starting a book but not finishing it because I start reading another new book. It’s a vicious cycle that I’m trying to remedy this summer. It does comes in handy though when you realize that you already own […]

Mention the restaurant Blue Hill at Stone Barns and people either say it was the best meal of their life or they are dying to go. I was very lucky to be invited recently to drive the Lincoln MKZ an hour outside the city to experience the restaurant and farm for myself. For those unfamiliar withBlue […]

It was about 900 degrees in New York today. Alright, it was actual 91 degrees but it felt hotter due to the humidity. This is always the time of year when I want to burn my summer clothes and start wearing transitional fall pieces in cooler weather. Since that’s about 6-8 weeks away, I’ll settle […]

Carolyn Murphy at Home

07 . 17 . 16

I enjoy following Estee Lauder face and Shinola women’s design director Carolyn Murphy on Instagram since she’s one of the more relatable models. I also love when she posts pics of her Chelsea townhouse so I was excited to see Rosewood Hotels feature more photos on Rosewood Issues website. Her home is filled with treasures from her […]

Nice was the subject of paintings for many famous artists including Raoul Dufy and Henri Matisse. I’m sure they would be just heartbroken as the rest of us at the recent attack on people just trying to enjoy a Bastille Day evening of fireworks. Here are a few Matisse paintings of Nice as a tribute to the city. […]

While the Peruvian Connection fashions I saw being photographed in Peru in May won’t be in online and in store until later this year, the Fall 2016 collection is available now. It’s filled with pima cotton and baby Alpaca pieces that will perfectly transition to cooler temperatures. While the exact coat above won’t be available […]

Paris Meets Poland

07 . 11 . 16

When I first saw photos of this apartment, I thought it was in Paris. Turns out it is actually located in Warsaw and was gut renovated and designed by Marta Chrapka of Colombe Design for a French lawyer who was relocating to Poland. While the backdrop is neutral like a French apartment, there is a lot […]

Chic in Chelsea

07 . 07 . 16

One of my favorite Instagram accounts is by fashion designer Remy Renzullo so I was very excited to see a profile on his Chelsea apartment on Vogue.com. He shares the space with his boyfriend Julian Taffel who works at Sotheby’s and has another great Instagram account to follow. Together they’ve created a deeply personal old […]

We have officially entered the dog days of summer in New York. The hazy, hot, and humid weather is going to wreak havoc on everyone’s hair but I have some tips and tricks to give your do a fighting chance. The first place to start is with a good hair cut. I’m currently looking for […]

Wonderful White Lace

06 . 30 . 16

I wear dresses all summer but after seeing The Duchess of Cambridge looking gorgeous at Royal Ascot in a beautiful white lace dress recently, I think I need to add one to my wardrobe. Usually everything she wears sells out immediately but since this one is a little more on the expensive side, so the exact dress […]

Le Coucou

06 . 29 . 16

My friend Tim and I decided to check out the new hotel 11 Howard while we were in Soho last week. Part of the hotel includes the new restaurant Le Coucou which is collaboration between chef Daniel Rose of Spring and La Bourse et La Vie in Paris and famed restaurateur Stephen Starr of Starr Restaurants. I […]

One of the main reasons I went to Sag Harbor recently was to visit the new Jayson Home pop up shop at 3 Madison Street. The Jayson Home in Chicago is one of my favorite stores and it is such a treat to have them on the East Coast this year. The old whaling and supply store is packed […]

My dear friend Michelle Adams is having a huge One Kings Lane sale of pieces from her former homes and new furniture collection that are perfect for summer decorating. There are also a lot of great images of her beautiful new home in Michigan too. Happy shopping!
