Perfect Pairing

08 . 30 . 16

I’m really looking forward to cooler weather so I can wear jeans again. They are my day to day uniform for running around New York and I especially love pairing them with an ivory blouse. It helps if the blouse is a little frilly or lacy but any ivory blouse will do. It’s the perfect […]

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 […]

Brow Beat

02 . 28 . 16

I’ve been getting compliments on my eyebrows for months now.  Friends, strangers, and even one straight man have commented on how great they look. I kept saying I was going to blog about my secret and now I’ve finally put a post together. Brows are really important for framing your face and I think the […]

Visiting Violet Grey

02 . 14 . 16

One of the first placesI went shopping in Los Angeles last week was the boutique Violet Grey. The Melrose Place mecca for carefully curated beauty products did not disappoint. I saw a lot of things I already use which was gratifying like the Chanel Sublimage line which I swear is the key to surviving long plane […]

À Bientôt

10 . 20 . 15

I feel like I’ve just gotten over my jet lag from Italy and now I’m off to Paris with Chanel to help celebrate 10 years of Sublimage, a seminal moment in Chanel Skincare history. I’ve used Sublimage off and on over the years but religiously for the past six weeks. I can honestly say that my skin […]

Fabulous Florence

10 . 04 . 15

After being unplugged for a few days, I’m back in business in Florence. Before I highlight a few of the things I’ve done so far, I do want to address my last post. I think there comes a time on every traveler’s journey where they lose their “stuff” so to speak.  My time came in Rome. […]

I don’t like to recommend any beauty products or procedures until I’ve tried them myself. Now that I’ve had three Skin Laundry laser and light treatments, I can say that it’s my new favorite skin treatment. And no, this is not a sponsored post.  I honestly love the way my skin looks and wanted to […]

I always forget that I have pretty good skin until someone compliments me. It isn’t something that comes without a lot of effort or products however. Any time I think I use a lot of products though, I am comforted by the fact that Eva Chen, former beauty editor and now editor in chief of […]

Weekend Chic

11 . 22 . 14

After traveling last week, I am very much looking forward to hibernating at home on Saturday. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to look good while doing it. Here’s a few of the things I’ll be wearing and using this weekend. J.McLaughlin Lisbet Fair Isle Sweater – I’m usually not a pattern person but […]

Lovely Lauren

11 . 17 . 14

It’s a bit of a cliche but I love how the French respect and even revere older women.  I wonder every day if America will ever get over its youth obsession. Maybe if we had more photos of Lauren Hutton around, they would finally get the picture. No pun intended.  November 17th is Lauren’s 71st […]

After trying to make it to every museum in Paris this summer, I realized that there are a few museums I still haven’t visited in New York.  One of the first I am headed is The Jewish Museum to see the new exhibition Helena Rubinstein: Beauty is Power exhibition. It is the first exhibition to […]

Fête Nationale

07 . 15 . 14

I was so busy enjoying my extra day off on Monday in Paris that I didn’t get a chance to post until late.  Better late than never I guess.  Bastille Day is known in France as Fête Nationale du 14 juillet or just let quatorze juillet.  It’s their Independence Day and they celebrate it with gusto […]

I usually visit Los Angeles every January but I didn’t make it this year.  I wish I had time for a quick trip before I leave for Paris just so I could visit Violet Grey. The store is the brain child of Cassandra Huysentruyt Grey who offers only the best edited selection of beauty products […]

I was joking with a friend this week that I’ve all of the sudden become everyone’s tour guide to Paris. I try to keep up with what’s new and the GoGo Paris guide helps not only with their guidebooks each season but also from their twitter and instagram accounts.  That’s how I found out that Buly 1803 […]

My trip to Paradise

01 . 21 . 14

First, I want to thank everyone who send kind emails and left comments regarding my beauty post.  I’m still trying to get through all the emails so if it takes me a few days to reply, please forgive me.  I think most of you completely understood why I wrote that post but a few of […]

There have been a lot of amazing opportunities that have come about because of my blog but Friday’s trip to Southampton to spend the day with Aerin Lauder takes the cake. A group of ten editors and bloggers left New York early and headed out east where our first stop was the AERIN Southampton store. […]

There is no greater excitement than finding out that someone whom you admire reads your blog.  Even more exciting is having the opportunity to interview them.  Last Thursday, I headed over to The Fuller Building to meet Aerin Lauder to discuss all the exciting things she is working on for her new company AERIN.  She […]
