My Wish for You

Happy New Year's Eve! I hope that within the coming year, you find the strength to reach out of your comfort zone a few more times than usual and follow the dreams you have deep down in your heart. You never know what absolutely wonderful things could come from those little steps of courage. Over the past year, I have followed my heart and taken chances based on what my passions and dreams are. Looking back, I would do it all over again, ten (twenty, thirty...) times over. Wishing you all a wonderful, bright, and safe New Year's with your loved ones. Thank you to my sweet friends and dear family for all of their support and to you for following along in the past year. It means more than you may ever know. xx

Home for the Holidays

When I am home for the holidays, cozy pajamas are the first items packed in my bag. What I look forward to the most are evenings spent with my family by the fire, music playing and drinks in hand. Especially during the holidays, there is no place I would rather be. I do love to get dressed up, so a fun skirt or dress is thrown in, making the perfect look for Christmas Eve and Boxing Day. Wishing you and your loved ones a safe and happy holiday this week! xx

Winter Pop

The temperatures have been unseasonably warm over the past two weeks here in New York City - I am pretty sure it has been the same for most across the country. Of course, I always have dreams for a white Christmas, but in no way is this girl complaining. It is a nice little refresh from the usual frigid temperatures! In addition, now is the perfect time for breaking out my white denim and light booties to embrace the weather. A (big) pop of red for the holidays is quite the fun addition, as well! I hope this little outfit will serve as bright inspiration for your weekend! I am also loving this vest to recreate the look if a coat is a bit too warm still. xx

Christmas in NYC

This is my first holiday season spent living in New York City. Every December, my family and I make a trip into the city, but living here and experiencing the holiday season every day is more magical than imagined. Decorations and sparkly lights are strung on every tree, Christmas wreath stands at each street corner, festive music in all cafes and restaurants. I always have an ongoing to do list, but it has extended quite a bit with all of the fun during this time of year. Here are a few of the things currently on my list! My mom and I did some holiday shopping this weekend and managed to cross off quite a few, including a trip for sweet treats at Laduree. If you have suggestions to add to my list, I would love to hear. xx
1. Tea at the Plaza Hotel
2. Coffee and stroll through Central Park
3. Visit the tree in Rockefeller Center
4. Department store window displays on Fifth Avenue
5. Rolf's Bar for a festive drink
6. Holiday shopping on Madison Avenue
7. Ice-skating in Bryant Park
8. Hot Cocoa and macaroons at Laduree

Gifts Under $100

If I am having troubles finding the perfect gift for a friend or loved one, my general rule of thumb is to look for something they may not always treat themselves to. Those "just because" items. A pair of cozy pajamas, set of lipstick's to add to your best girlfriend's ongoing collection, or monogrammed goodies for their desk and keys. Here is a roundup of some of my favorites - all under $100. A personal gift at any cost can be just as special and sweet. xx

A Glam Occasion

It should be no surprise that one reasion I love this time of year, is because it's the perfect excuse to get fancy! Cocktail parties and soiree's are in full force - I wouldn't have it any other way. Adding a bit of glam is always fun! I am loving this bold lipstick, these faux fur gloves, and ultra chic black dress. A plaid skirt and cashmere sweater paired with fun heels makes a work outfit for day to night. I hope this collage brings you a bit of bright inspiration for the coming weeks! xx
