Flowers make everyday bright and with today being an extra gloomy day in NYC, flowers are a must! Hydrangeas are one of my favorites (I have quite a few favorites), especially when it comes to the home.  I pretty much always have fresh hydrangeas in the apartment in at least one, sometimes two places.  They’re just so full and gorgeous! Plus a little goes a long way.  You can buy a bundle of three and there you have it,… Read more »


  Fish plays a starring role in dinners around her at least 2-3 times a week.  Typically we love salmon (wild only, never farm grown), trout, halibut, or cod.  But for this particular meal we went with swordfish, which was super easy to make and very yummy. And for those of you that don’t like fish that is too fishy and the texture is pretty firm, so give it a try.  Although be warned, this is not a fish you… Read more »

  Four day work week begins NOW!  Can you tell I’m excited?!  Excited and anxious all at the same time.  Why is it always that leading up to a holiday weekend, you end up with double the amount of work on your plate for the week.  That is exactly what is happening for me now. That paired with the fact that this weekend is my loves bday.  Although he swears he doesn’t want to do anything I still need to… Read more »


Açai bowls seems to be everywhere these days!  Up until a few weeks ago, I had never heard of them, then one day our intern,  Lisa brought one into work for breakfast and I was instantly intrigued.  Anything that is colorful, involves fruit, and looks pretty is something I want to try.  The ones Lisa used to bring in were from Juice Generation, but there was no way I would ever have the time to walk 3 blocks and  4… Read more »


  Floral Top and Striped Shorts, Zara; Sunnies, LIC Flea Market; Necklace (seen here); Sandals, Vintage; Handbag, Michael Kors; Parasol, Pearl River Mart  Last weekend was the annual Jazz Age Lawn Festival on Governors Island (south of Manhattan).  One of my favorite parts of summer for the last couple of years in NYC, last year being the first one I was able to attend.  The sad thing about this year though, was that I was so unprepared.  Last year, I had… Read more »


  Oh, Monday! How we all love to hate you… This one is particularly tough for me, as it’s my first Monday headed to the office in the past 3 weeks. I was really starting to get used to the 3 day weekends, but alas, I wasn’t able to make them mandatory (still working on it for 2014). My Weekend in an Instant // August 17th – 18th: Friday night started off at Cutler Salon for my first hair cut… Read more »


What comes first, the outfit or the location?… Most times, when it comes to these post, the fashion comes first and then from there I create the concept as far as the location and over all look for the shoot.  This post is the exact opposite.  Still in Bakersfield, I came across this wall for Harper Pools & Spa and I knew I had to take pictures in front of it… but what’s a girl to do when on the… Read more »
