what are everyone's thoughts on these? i wasn't sure if these were a staple piece for every girl's closet or an i'm-planning-on-staying-out-until-5am piece at first, but i've ordered two so far and i think i love! they are super easy, super flattering and dare i say chic.

here are a few of my favorites.

is it summer yet?

January 27, 2016

its officially blizzard weather here in manhattan, so naturally all i can think about is my vacation to the south of france that i will never return from and live happily ever after. a girl can dream okay?

on a real note, i have seen so many cute bathing suits lately (i think baywatch is coming back guys) that are basically nothing but a constant reminder that #summerbodiesaremadeinthewinter. here are a few of my favorites, plus a few other accessories i am loving right now.

feel good tea

January 25, 2016

i was one of the lucky ones to get the flu last week (which was awful - take your vitamin c and wash your hands!!), but i also discovered the most amazing tea recipe, so i wanted to share it with you guys. if i had a fireplace in my massive new york east village mansion (lol if only) i would totally cozy up next to it with my favorite blanket and drink it. but i don't, so i settled for cozying up on my love seat with my favorite blanket and watched netflix... here is the recipe, it is great for fighting colds which is why i made it, but also good just to feel yummy and warm inside!

small piece of french ginger (about 1/2 inch), minced
pinch of turmeric
pinch of cinnamon
tiny pinch of pink sea salt crystals
tiny pinch of red pepper cayenne
juice from 1/2 of a small lemon
1 tsp of raw honey
(you can get all of these ingredients from trader joes!)

put everything except for the honey into your favorite mug, pour in the boiling water and let sit for 5-10 minutes so that the water can soak in all of the nutrients. then add in your honey. everything will sink to the bottom - i leave it but if that bothers you, you can pour into a new mug.


closet cleanse

January 18, 2016

i was doing my daily read on today and came across an inspiring article that reminded me of my "closet cleanse" new years resolution. its called the lean closet and is a must-read. im telling you, im not the only one that thinks detoxing your closet is one of the best feelings in the world!! it sounds silly, but it truly is life changing and teaches you things that have absolutely nothing to do with clothes (think decision making and knowing what really matters to you in life).

here are a few of my favorite closet essentials:

January 1, 2016

alas it is the time of year when everyone sets goals for the new year upon us. i have a long list (work out more, eat healthier… #duh) but one of my new years resolutions that i hope is an inspiration for all girls reading this, is to cleanse my closet and start to build one that consists of basics and versatile investment pieces that i will have for a very long time, if not forever. i detoxed my closet a few times this year (i was inspired to do so originally after reading this book and then later by this book) and my closet has quickly gone from pinks, blues, yellows and greens to camels, blacks, whites, grays and navys. i have a canvas that i can start to build on and not only does it look much better, but it so much easier to put together an outfit that is naturally me. it sounds silly, but it feels sooo good! with that, i am going to start posting a few basics and investment pieces that i think every girl needs. the first one? a leather jacket of course! here are a few of my favorites in all price ranges.

heres to a refreshing, exciting, exhilarating, healthy and adventurous 2016!
