How To Ward Off a Crush & Be Crushed On

It might have happened to you. That moment you become a little fearful, yet somewhat flattered, of someone who is obsessing over you. He or she may show up uninvited or constantly text/call/e-mail you even though you provide little to no response. You don’t have the heart to tell him or her to leave you alone, or maybe you do but he or she mistook your straight-forwardness for playing hard-to-get.

Keep on reading for ways to ward off a hardcore crush and learn how to be crushed on! (more…)

How To Not Look like a Tourist in the Rain

Rain, rain go away come again while I’m on vacation in the Bahamas. Rain sucks. Unless you’re trying to sleep or overindulge in carbs (guilty!), then it’s the perfect motivation. The sidewalks in the city become filled with slow-walking, umbrella-carrying, rain-boot-wearing, frizzy-hair-having pedestrians that all have the same grimace as the horizontal rain sprinkles onto their faces, making their umbrellas mostly useless.

Food

I was near the Meatpacking District meeting some friends for a lazy Sunday carb-loading Italian dinner (check out the tiramisu above) while checking out everyone’s drizzle style and taking creeper shots. The rain stayed at a consistent drizzle/fuzzy sprinkle all day so people were dressed across the board. I caught some overly prepared tourists walking around in their candy colored PVC ponchos who looked like they were ready for a monsoon, and locals who were mostly dressed in light hooded jackets, hats or completely unprepared as if it was just another sunny day. I met a group of friends all with their individual styles to combat the elements.

Hey Mom, Treat Yourself for Mother’s Day!

Mother's DayOne of the toughest jobs in the world is to be a mother. It’s nice to have one day a year that’s guaranteed to appreciate all the hard work and effort mom’s everywhere have to deal with on a daily basis. It would be nice if there were two, three…or four days dedicated to it! But we’re just saying.

Obviously since it’s Mother’s Day you will receive gifts from your children saying how much they love you and that you are the best mom in the whole world. And while you may cherish and look forward to opening these precious gifts that may possibly get stowed away somewhere, eaten (you can’t resist those chocolates) or die (I’m talking about flowers!), you should treat yourself. Yes, that’s right. We want you to buy yourself something this Mother’s Day! (more…)

Must-Have Items for When the Sun Starts Shining

We’ve gone through some roller coaster-style weather here in New York this past year. Rain storms, tons of snow, Hurricane Sandy and too many gray days left me begging for spring time. Our first couple weeks of spring wasn’t all that great honestly. It was kinda grey and chilly, but now the sun is shining and the flowers are starting to bloom lining the sidewalks with vibrant colors.

Now that warm spring weather is in full effect, I find the sleeves on my tops are slowly inching up towards my shoulders. And although I love wearing boots, I love when it comes time to ditch them for half the year and switch to flats and sandals. When I think of spring my mind goes straight to light-wash denim, slouchy tops and lightweight sweaters. On that note, here are a few of my must-have items that no wardrobe should be without!

Have Fun in the Sun with L*Space, Haute Hippie & Tkees!

We picked our must-have items from brands like J Brand, Ray-Ban and Eugenia Kim.

My Cyber Monday Wishlist!

Dresses

In my opinion, Cyber Monday is way better than Black Friday. I rather lay in my bed on my laptop and score awesome deals than wait outside on a freezing line for hours and risk not getting what I waited for. It’s also just so much easier and convenient. Take 20% off your SINGER22 order today with code: CYBER and it ends tonight so hurry up and go fill that shopping bag!

I put together my wishlist for Cyber Monday that mostly consists of holiday/winter inspired pieces. Take a look below!

  1. BOULEE Avery Lace Dress in black: A girly dress with sheer lace sleeves, a full skirt and an open back.
  2. Parker Geometric Beaded Dress: The perfect holiday dress with a rich hue, beading and a dropped waist and draped skirt.
  3. Elizabeth and James Lisette Dress: Body-hugging long sleeve dress with a layered tulle skirt.

Manicure Inspiration: Passion for Plaid

Blouse

Our lovely model, Katrina, was sporting amazing plaid nails for one of our mailers that was for, well, the obvious…plaid. I feel like plaid is one of those prints that will never really go out of style, and there's just something about it that makes me feel all cozy inside. Maybe because it makes me think of cold weather and sitting by a fire? Who knows. Anyway, here are a few of my favorite plaid pieces. (more…)
