Pregnancy Skin Care: My Top Three

When you’re pregnant, it is really important to maintain your health and beauty routine. Not only is it good for you, it is also good for your sanity. If I am perfectly honest, I am not sure if stretch mark creams actually prevent stretch marks. I think getting stretch marks has more to do with heredity and skin type, and no cream can change your genetic makeup. I will say I haven’t gotten a new stretch mark (yet), and I think these creams are really helping! Also, my pregnant skin definitely needs extra TLC. Between dry patches and break outs, a solid […]

My winter beauty must-haves

I posted this photo on Instagram and realized it would be cool if I also shared my favorite winter beauty products on the blog as well. The winter has only just begun, but it has already been bitterly cold. My skin is truly struggling as a result. From head to toe there have been flakes and scales and dryness. Overall it is not my best look. As a result I have invested in some really moisturizing beauty products to give my skin the moisture it needs. Ok, let’s get this started: Fresh Sugar Face Polish: I might be Fresh’s biggest fan. I love […]

4 Beauty Products That Changed My Life

I have always been a bit of a product junkie. Products come, products go, but in the end there are a few that I could never give up. Ever. Aquaphor Healing Ointment: I use this product mostly for my lips. But it also works well for cuticles, knees, elbows and other pesky dry spots. For lips, this product is extra amazing because it isn’t one of those chapsticks that just makes your lips more chapped. Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil: I know I have already raved about this product, but it is the bees knees. I swear my face has been transformed into […]

Same Dress, Different Wedding

I am not sure if you all know my wedding dressing policy — but it is pretty straightforward. One dress gets purchased for wedding season, and that dress gets worn to every wedding of the year. This year’s wedding guest dress is actually last year’s wedding guest dress because of laziness. Next year I will get a new one. This one is so cute, though! It is lacy and fluffy! Also, guess what! My creative directin’ husband is here! On the blog! Looking all handsome! This is rare event, y’all. So savor this moment. Dress: Asos (old) | Shoes: J. Crew

In NYC, even the art wears hipster glasses. at the present I am… ♥ wearing: My trusty Ralph Lauren button down, skinnies and nude flats ♥ listening: Kacey Musgraves’ album — Same Trailer, Different Park ♥ reading: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn ♥ watching: Mad Men — isn’t everyone? ♥ doing: My nails. I am trying to get better at painting my own nails. I think I am making progress, if I do say so myself. ♥ loving: All the blooming trees in the city. Gorgeous. ♥ hating: Leggings as pants. But you already knew that. ♥ wishing: For a puppy! ♥ wanting: A whole piece bathing suit. I think I might get this midkini first, though. Baby […]

The worst weekend to get your hair did.

This past weekend was straight up rain all day err’day in NYC. But I had a hair appointment that was tragically overdue so I went despite the weather. My hair stylist was all like, “Wow! You are brave. It’s so rainy today.” And then I was like, “Well, it isn’t raining Nair, so I think I’ll be all right.” Because I am so witty and I always have so many witty things to say, you see. Well, as usual — the lady who has spent the last three years transforming my hair from a dry, breaking, rat’s nest into something moderately presentable […]

Short Week

So see what had happened was…. I didn’t do any outfit shoots this week. Yes, I know, I have a fashion blog with no new fashions on it. BUT I blame this little guy. Here’s what happened — I went to Virginia last week to visit this sweet, adorable little pup (and my parents) then I got stranded, with no camera and no creative director, when Nemo hit. So, in essence, the lack of outfit posts is entirely the puppy’s fault. You can yell at him (if you have no soul). So, because there are zero new outfits to share this week, […]

Outfit Post Outtakes: Part 2

Yes, it’s that time again! Time for outfit post outtakes! Yaaaayyy!! As a fashion blogger, it is easy to take yourself a bit too seriously. The pressure to style the perfect outfit and land the perfect pose can sometimes make you forget how fun (and hilarious) blogging can be. I like to ground myself by looking back through my old shoots and laughing at some of the hilariously bad photos that are taken. Then I like to put those pictures on the Internet — because, hilarity knows no shame. Oh, and if Beyonce can do it, so can I. Below are […]

Another Brick in the Wall

The sun came out in picturesque Harlem which made for bearable outfit post shoots. Hurray! Also, you may notice that my new bangs are a bit shorter. They are because I decided to go big or go home. So I had my stylist cut them short and blunt. However, short, blunt bangs require even more TLC than longer, swoopy bangs. For example, when I washed my hair after my stylist cut them, I didn’t realize that one has to style one’s bangs when they are wet. Since I failed to do anything to my bangs when they were wet, when they dried they […]

Bangs: An Analysis

Last weekend, I got me some bangs. I have had them for approximately five days and they have already changed my life — for worse and for better (like marriage!). Here’s why: The Good: The bangs, overall, are quite lovely. I look exactly like Zooey Deschanel with bangs. In fact, people have stopped me on the street and they are all like, “Omg,  are you Zooey Deschanel??” and I am all like, “Oh, hehehe yes no. It’s just my amazing bangs!” So that is good. The Bad: I have prided myself in waking up (about) thirty minutes before I need to leave my […]
