How to Wear Black, White and Grey

2

Sometimes black, white and grey just nail it for me. It’s simple, sleek and very New York City. When I started out in the fashion industry, I was on the buying and merchandising team of a then Fortune 500 company. I was regularly in meetings with our president and I never understood why she always looked so put together. So effortless. So chic. I remembered when it finally clicked and I realized why she always looked that way. It’s because she wore black. All the time.  This is how to wear black, white and grey so you can lighten up an all-black…

Lightweight Spring Cashmere

0

This time of year can be so crazy in terms of what to wear. For example, two days ago it was 61 degrees; yesterday a nice and temperate 50 degrees;  and today – holy cow! It’s 23 degrees, with a windchill in the single digits. It’s all about layering and wearing unbulky sweaters and cardigans that don’t read “winter” yet still keep you warm. Enter LABEL+thread and their lightweight spring cashmere. LABEL+thread is a brand I work for — and wear — all the time. It’s a luxury knitwear brand owned by two ladies who design well-constructed sweaters, knit tops, cardigans and…

3 Ways to Make Your Blowout Last Longer

0

Besides the mani/pedi, the other indulgence that many of us ladies (and those across the country) have indulged in is the blow-out, for us New Yorkers, we go to the The Drybar. I’ve written about The Drybar before and continue to go back and back, and back. Since a blowout is a $50 investment ($40 + $10 tip) it’s wise to learn the tricks to make it last longer. During the past year The Drybar has opened up in my neighborhood (so lucky!!!), I’ve figured out how to use the best products to keep that blowout last longer for 4…

Traveling Beauty Essentials

0

We’ve done so many family trips lately that packing up my traveling beauty essentials has pretty much become routine. I normally don’t have a long beauty process: I like to wash and moisturize my face, and then put on the basics: mascara, eyeliner, blush, lip gloss. When I travel, I also pack some things for “just in case”. All of the products shown can be packed in a gallon sized ziplock bag which can be easily lifted in and out of your bag when you go through security.  Note that this post contains affiliate links. Here’s my top 16 Traveling…

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are always my own.  We all know that feeling of waking up, knowing that you have to get breakfast made, lunch done, get the kids dressed and out the door, oh, and you have to also take a shower, eat breakfast, find an outfit and look somewhat presentable for the day. Wouldn’t it be great to have ONE thing off your to-do list in the morning? Earlier this year, the apparel brand, J.Jill, launched “uncomplicate” — J.Jill’s guiding philosophy and promise to us: Trust J.Jill to take care of what you wear so…

Best Beauty Products to use with Retin-A

17

I was not compensated in any way for this post. This post does contain affiliate links. All opinions expressed are mine. Since turning the Big 4-0, I decided to kick my beauty routine up a notch. I went to the dermatologist and told her that I just turned 40 and that I’d like to give myself a present: a prescription for Retin-A. I used Retin-A as a teenager to take care of my acne. Now, I wanted to use it to prevent the onslaught of wrinkles that will be happening in the next two decades. When I started using Retin-A…

This is a sponsored post. I attended Strut: The Fashionable Mom’s Show as a Cottonelle Ambassador. All opinions expressed are always mine. New York Fashion Week just ended and it was a treat for me to go; I had left the crazy, whirlwind life in the corporate fashion world a few years ago so it truly is fun to come back as a “guest”. This year, I attended Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week as a Cottonelle Blogger Ambassador at Strut: The Fashionable Mom’s Fashion held at Lincoln Center in New York City. I loved going back stage and feeling the…

Eucerin: Skin Care for All Seasons

0

I was given samples for the purpose of this post. This post contains affiliate links. All opinions expressed are mine. It’s important to keep your skin looking in tip-top shape especially after a summer of sun, salt and sand. Heading into the cooler months of fall and winter, it’s even more vital to make sure your skin is hydrated. The team at Eucerin gave me a host of products to sample, which, to tell you the truth, I never knew existed. When I think of “Eucerin” I think of that big tub of super-rich lotion that I would only use…

Fashionable Sun Protection with Coolibar

1

I was given Coolibar samples for me and my family to try out for this post. All opinions expressed are mine. We are very big beach people. We enjoy being in the sun, sand and water. Even though we are very thorough with our sunscreen, we should take extra precaution when we are out in the sun. This year, we’ve taken a two trips that really warranted extra sun protection: a trip to Turks and Caicos and our yearly trip to the Jersey Shore.  Coolibar was gracious to outfit my family so that we had the highest protection under the…

Back-to-School Fashion with Ruum American Kids Wear

1

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are always mine. Shopping for back-to-school can be a little tough, especially when your little ones have a huge opinion on what they are going to where. Shopping, however, did get a bit easier with a new kids brand called Ruum American Kids Wear. For those in New York City, the nearest store is in West Nyack, but you can definitely shop online. (The sizes seem true-to-size based on my daughter.) Their styles are on-trend for the baby, toddler and tween set with pleather jackets and skirts, plaids, and a bit of…

Wearing Denim on Denim

3

I was not compensated for this post in any way. All opinions expressed are always mine. I am a denim girl through and through. When in doubt, a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt is always a staple look for me. In the summer, I love a monochromatic look of Denim on Denim. I just think it looks smart and city-chic, and a look that you just can’t go wrong with. I think any shade of denim can go together, as long as it doesn’t look too fussy. Old Navy Chambray Denim Pullover Shirt. Similar here | Lucky Brand Skinny Jeans.…
