Galentine's Day Dinner

Thursday, February 16, 2017

This week has been a whirlwind to say the least and NYFW usually is. With multiple shows and events happening all around New York us bloggers are usually popping into one place then running to the next. With all that goes on it's hard to unwind but luckily I was able to sit down with a couple of great gals before the craziness of Fashion Week for a "Galentine's" Dinner at Fig + Olive in the Meatpacking District. The restaurant is located on West 13th street (right near the Standard Hotel) and is chic and classy. 

What was on the menu? We dined on the Restaurant Week Menu and I must say everything looked delicious. It was hard to narrow down my choices but I decided to go with the a salad, salmon and dessert. 

 Starter:  Manchego, fig, gorgonzola dolce, apple, tomato, walnut, olive
Main: Braised endive, baby kale, cauliflower purée, olive & piquillo condiment 
Dessert: Chestnut Mouse with Amarena: Walnut meringue, cherry sorbet

Fig + Olive also has a great array of bites to share including delicious crostinis ( you must check out their bruch menu) and are perfect for a girls brunch or date night! 

The tables were decked out with bags from Deux Lux and had great products from LavidoSurya BrasilJaimie Nicole JewelryAll in the cards New YorkButter LondonGlow Recipe and drinks from Core Water (see all the inside contents here)- Everything a girl needs to pamper herself!

Pamper Yourself: Feel Good Products

Monday, February 13, 2017

Let's talk about the perfect way to pamper a girl for Valentine's Day or quite honestly...any day after! 
Let's start with the nails this fab array of nail colors is by Surya Brasil and is part of their natural, organic and vegan cosmetic line that is also dedicated to environmental conservation. Each bottle has a different animal on it and if you head over to the website you can read a bit about the animal as you purchase your favorite color. The brand has been around since 1995 and in 2005 they launched Surya Solidarity in order to give back to the community. 

Winter is the worst time for lips, it's dry out and your lips crack and look and feel awful. These natural cocoa butter lip balms by Camille Beckman are just the trick to get you through those brutal days. These babies are made with fair-trade organic cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, beeswax, coconut oil, stevia and an array of vitamins. And at only $4.50 you can "splurge" and get all the flavors! 

I mean what girl does not love hearts! Last week I posted about the Jaimie Nicole Heart Collection with great items under $100. The collection has multiple items that you can wear on a daily basis with any outfit from day to night. This line has been around for the past six years and Jaimie is philanthropically committed to her community believing that making a difference starts right in your own backyard.  

Cuteness comes in little packages and All in The Cards has adorable packaging and decor for every single occasion. Think Valentine's, birthdays...you name it, they have it- from paper to partyware and even home decor. These little boxes are great for hosting a party and they are great to place on the tables or to use for party gifts! 

I am a HUGE fan of Butter London and their line of plush lip glosses can't be beat. I am all about bright colors this season, it helps you take your look from drab to fab in two seconds! With over 15 colors you can be sure to keep up with the trends of the season when it comes to beauty. Butter London was founded in 2005 and is leads the industry in innovation with good-for-you formulations using a  carcinogen free Crafted with Care™ approach.

The line has a great array of products from totes to satchels and an adorable line of cosmetics bags with the cutest sayings. Deux Lux is Peta approved and vegan. 

Layered to Perfection

Wednesday, February 8, 2017

I have been layering like it's no one's business! Seriously New York...This weather has been crazy- this week alone we range from rain to 60 degrees to snow and I can not keep up. 
The only thing helping me through the daily weather changes is layering, and lots of it! I picked up this Tech Fleece Cape from six:02 (ladies if you have not heard of this store you need to check it out) and it is one of my favorite layering pieces. The body is down filled making it heavy on warmth yet it's light on weight making it easy to wear and even easier to carry when it gets too warm. On these in between days I find that my puffer jacket is way too heavy and I always feel like I am a mess when I wear it. This cape is stylish and chic and is great to throw over a cardigan and jeans or a long sleeve dress.

Last week I met a friend in the city to shop for a new pair of boots and after we were finished hitting the shops we stopped at Ralph's Coffee (read more about it!) on 5th avenue. Ralph's is actually on the 2nd floor of Ralph Lauren and is a super chic coffee shop and the perfect place to drop your bags and relax after a long days.

Is this bag just not the cutest? The perfect bag for Valentine's Day or any day before or after  Heart Leather Satchel Dr. Martens c/o

Men's Gift Guide

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

Hey Ladies! A few times a year I round up some great gift ideas for the men and figured what better time than Valentine's day! I have a few items on my list for my man and a few items he loves that I threw on here for you ladies to explore. Here are some ideas:

1. Mini Drone: Last weekend we went to Spin in NYC to play some ping-pong with a couple friends, I got our in the first round but my boyfriend continued on to third place and took home a mini drone. He is fascinated by it! Think toys for grown ups and you will get the idea!

2. Active Fit hooded Jacket by North Face: I mean anything North Face usually makes the list but I absolutely love this style and think it is the perfect gift!

3. Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses: Again, you can't go wrong with these- I love picking items that you know he won't buy for himself but would appreciate having them and these Ray Bans fit that bill!

4. Happy Socks: Great colors, great patterns what can be wrong! My mom actually got my boyfriend a pair for the holidays and he loves them so I figured I would scoop up a few more (and these are on sale).

5. Jack Spade: Wallet and Money Clip- My boyfriend uses my hair ties as a wallet- true story! It's time to trade up!

6. John Varvatos Deluxe Gift Set: a few items that smell nice...maybe more for you than him!

7. No More Love Tee: Or anything Michael Jordan!

8. Perry Ellis Toiletry Bag: I love how classic this one is and it's on sale- a win win!

9. Richer Poorer Men's crew socks- another cute round up of things any man needs.
