What a glorious summer we are having here in New York City! Yes, its hot. But I like the heat. I am a native New Yorker but this city girl sure does love the great outdoors. Not much beats long walks in the grass, surrounded by the shades of trees and birds telling stories I wish I understood.
One of my favorite spots in New York City is the New York Botanical Garden located in the borough of The Bronx. I love her quietness. I am joyfully overwhelmed by her massive beauty that gently surrounds me. I appreciate what she gives - endless flowers and plants and herbs from far off places with so many stories to tell - without asking for anything in return.Read More
Dear Sunday, you are fast becoming my very best friend. For its today where burying my head back under the covers and wiggling my toes back into place are welcome. There is nothing that must be done. There is no one that I have to see. There is no plan that needs to be made. There is nothing that I am missing out on. There is nothing that calling me to "work harder" .There is just me. With Sunday. And her allowing me the joy to just breathe.Read More
Today is a good day.
A beautiful escape from the city's heat tucked away on a rooftop in the Meatpacking district is Catch. That's where you find me and my good friend Carol. Diving into bowls of deliciously marinated Maine lobster, shrimp, Alaskan king crab, scallop, mango, blood oranges plus overflowing bowls of chicken, quinoa, roasted sweet potatoes, toasted avocado dressed in shallot vinaigrette plus plus plus spicy tuna pear hand rolls! Talk about Happiness! We had a European lunch which basically means we ordered more and more and more and had free something something shots from the bar. ;) Ha! We sure did enjoy.Read More
I just remembered I have a Blog Bookclub. I know I know ... "Some days I amaze myself. Other days I'm looking for phone while I'm talking on it." Uh-huh so me! Here are a list of books I am reading or read within the last month. What are you reading?Read More
Happy Tuesday Babes!
I love this look I wore today. It's a Zara piece I picked up while I was in Milan in March. It's a happy dress! It's fun! It's easy! Of course, I decided to make it my own and actually wore the dress backwards because I wanted to have a little fun with the front. I have linked some other similar dresses available now that I also have my eyes on.
Enjoy !Read More

Hey My Babes!
Spent a fabulous day at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx, New York. There was an amazing exhibit from renowned artist Daly Chihuly. Today's weather was magic. The plants and flowers were magic. The energy the sky was magic. Here is a beautiful lookbook of all I did and saw today. I hope you enjoy!Read More
Hey My Babes !
What is more classic than a white tee and blue jeans for a day out in the city. I love the look. But I have to admit that it can get boring sometimes and it's not the easiest look to take from day to night. This is exactly why I am so in love with these bejewelled ZARA blue jeans that I picked up in Milan! The boyfriend cut, the relaxed distressed fit with the sprinkling of gems around the pockets and knees makes this look classic with a bit of twist. Pop on a pair of heels and I would totally rock this to a dinner date or a girls night. I paired the look with a spattering of different size rings from H&M also in Milan. I wanted to add some texture to the look from the waist up. I intentionally didn't want to add a necklace because I wanted to work around the "classic-ness" of this look. I paired the look down with a comfortable pair of black leather slippers from ZARA in Milan. On my wrist, I am wearing my favorite bracelet from a shop in Tulum. I hope this look inspires you to look for pieces that take a basic look up the next level.
Hope you are all Enjoying!
Happy Saturday My Babes!
Big kiss from me and my sweatpants ;)) Ha ha ha. Today was filming day for my Youtube channel. Super happy making some really fun makeup tutorials that I can't wait to share with you all. But as soon as I was done I couldn't wait to throw these on and grab a nice glass of White Zinfandel. 😍
Last week, I had brunch at a super great restaurant called Bocaditos Bistro.Read More
Everything sounds like crap until you are in the right mind-set. Ms. Rhimes.
In a small bookstore in Geneva International Airport in search of a companion for the flight back home I came across this. Year of Yes. It was about 2 weeks into 2017 and I had an itch for consistency. Consistency in thought. I remember when I was moaning and groaning to a friend in London several years ago about how my life wasn't where I wanted it to be and blaming everyone and everything under the sun, he turned toward me shrugged and said "I think it's the way you think". That's it. No tissue. No shoulder to lean on. Not even an offer for a nice bottle of wine. Just these words.Read More
In the spirit of Beyonce at last year's Superbowl and Kenya Moore from Real Housewives of Atlanta ( Yesss I am a fan beyond words .. I think I only own a t.v. so I can watch Housewives of Atlanta ) I am Gone with the Wind Fabolous twirling in this happy number from Forever 21 today. It's actually a dress but when I have been known to just wear something off the rack?
Being 5'11 often means It's a bit of work to find jeans or maxi dresses that can touch the ground or basically long enough to cover my shoes. So what do I do when I find something that I love but doesn't fit 100%? I make it work
Happy 2017 My Babes !
