“Enjoy every sunset, look forward to every sunrise”… the perfect reminder for the weekend and everyday for that matter.  Many times we’re all moving so fast, always think ahead to what’s next, that we forget to just take a moment, sit back, and enjoy where we are currently, acknowledging our accomplishments and giving thanks to those that have helped us along the way.  Looking forward to tomorrow keeps us inspired and motivated, but don’t lose the present moment in… Read more »


  Quick and easy dinners on a week night are a requirement… but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on taste! Last night was my first night making King Crab Legs and my first though was, why had I waited so long?  Now one downside to crab is it is a little on the expensive side.  But every now and then you gotta treat yourself, my love and I try to limit ourselves to one treat per month (something… Read more »

  The forecast for the day in NYC is another hot one, with temperatures expected to reach 90 degrees!  Juice is perfect for days like today when you don’t feel like cooking.  While green juice is my daily go too, I love to incorporate other types of fruit and vegetable juices as well, trying new combinations along the way.  Last night I wanted to make something fun and pink, inspired by a summer sunset! Starting with the strawberries, since we’re… Read more »

The perfect way to start a Monday… My Weekend in an… Read more »

  I’m sure you are all aware by now, that Instagram launched a new video feature yesterday, pretty exciting, right? What’s also exciting is that on Sage & Sparkle I’m featuring my first video today… perfect timing if I do say so myself. Video in general, be it an online tutorial set to vintage music with cool graphics, whimsical fashion promo videos, or most recently “Ask Emily” by Cupcakes and Cashmere, I love it all! So it was only natural… Read more »

I love to cook!!! But I also have a very busy schedule, between work and traveling, I rarely have time to food shop. However I am sure you can all relate when I say… You make time for the things/people you love. You just do!  When it comes to cooking, that’s my philosophy… I love it, so I make time for it.  I also love the whole act of planning a meal; chopping, tasting, and finally the most fun —… Read more »

A fun and playful combination… Mixing floral prints and stripes, seems to be popping up everywhere these days and I absolutely love it!  Mixing prints and textures is something I have always been comfortable with, in both fashion and decorating my home.  The key to making it work is to ensure that all patterns play a part in one cohesive color story.  With this particular outfit, I wanted to go casual with a lose fitting top and a slightly relaxed… Read more »

In my opinion, serendipitous discovers are a requirement for a perfect Sunday afternoon. Last Sunday, while headed to the fruit stand for our weekly shopping, as my love and I drove past the Noguchi museum, we felt compelled to stop.  The funny thing is originally we thought this place was a new sushi restaurant, based off of the name, but through a little research we found out that a) it was NOT a sushi place, and b) it was not new!… Read more »

The LIC Flea Market finally opened last weekend and I was beyond thrilled! Flea markets are totally my happy place… Being a six year resident of Brooklyn, who recently moved to LIC, I sure was missing my weekly flea market fix.  Walking around not knowing what treasures I would discover always brought me joy… not to mention that food is out-of-this-world amazing! So this past Saturday, you better believe I was geared up and ready to find some treasures and… Read more »
