For today’s outfit post, I bring you another black + white favorite, this time incorporating a trend from Spring that works well into the Fall season, windowpane print.  When paired with my favorite pair of black jeans and this ultra cool matte sequin varsity jacket, the look is effortlessly, cool and chic! Black + white is so hot this season, and there are so many ways in which you can wear the trend.  Add bonus, its a classic.  Even though… Read more »


Happy Monday, all the way from Los Cabo San Lucas!!! My BF and I are here for the next couple of days (he’s here for a work conference…I’m here for the pool/beach/spa), but no need to worry, Sage + Sparkle will not suffer.  I have a few things saved up for you… making this week, business as usually for the blog. Before I head back to the pool for margarita, it’s time for a quick weekend recap… Early morning walks… Read more »

{Inspire Your Work by Departika on Etsy} Happy Friday, my friends! It has been a wonderful world-wind of a week around here… if you follow me on facebook, twitter, or instagram, you know why! Between finishing up a script to recording voice over and filming for a training video (at my day job), things have also been pretty exciting in my blogging world as well.  Plus Sunday, my boyfriend and I are headed to Cobo for a mini vaca.  He… Read more »

Living along the east river this year has brought many changes to my life… for one, it’s freezing in the morning!  And as the temps start to drop more and more each morning I know my favorite season is finally getting started.  Fall always brings crisp mornings and cooler nights, where being prepared is key! Layers, layers, layers! I can’t stress this enough. When the temps can rise up to 75-80 degrees during the day but drop as low as… Read more »


Twelve weeks of Pumpkin continues with this delightfully delicious appetizer… Pumpkin & Bacon Crostini!  Pumpkin AND bacon in one dish… sign me up, YES, please! Only one word could describe these and that is… AMAZ! A few weeks ago few new friend of mine Olivia of Corporate Catwalk decided to host a Fashion Blogger get together at her house, to give us a chance to meet others fashion bloggers in NYC.  The theme was “Wine & Cheese”… simply enough, but… Read more »


This summer, Aztec prints were everywhere!   Bright and bold, sequined and flirty, or black and white, you name it, someone had it and I was not an exception.  This light sweater from Zara is one of my favorite late summer purchases, perfect for the somewhat “Indian Summer” NYC experienced for a few days.  While the temps have absolutely dropped in the first and last hours of the day, the in-between is just cool enough for a heavier leather jacket,… Read more »


Hello Autumn!  Well there you have it… my favorite season has officially arrived in NYC!  I woke up this morning at 6AM, usual for a weekday, but what was not usual was that today it was completely dark at that time.  What a difference two days makes! It also just so happened to be 40 degrees outside and since we went to bed with the windows open and live right along the East River, it was freezing! However despite the… Read more »


  Hello my lovely readers!  Fancy seeing you here on a Sunday… As luck would have it today is the first day of autumn and I just so happen to have a fabulous new pumpkin recipe for you.  Week three of 12 Weeks of Pumpkin starts now! In my opinion, the start of autumn deserves a celebratory brunch, centered around pumpkin.  It is my favorite season and my favorite ingredient to cook with after all.  For this particular brunch, I decided… Read more »


  I can’t tell you how excited I am that it’s Friday!  It has been a world-wind of a week… I started the week off on the west coast for the 2nd week in a row, then my travel plans for work changed tenfold, really knocking me off-balance.  Everything that could go wrong, did, and sleep was something of an afterthought.  But here I am, back in NY, and ready for the weekend.  Originally I wasn’t scheduled to be back… Read more »


Add sequins, beads, gold thread, or some element of shine to anything, and I love it.  Basically if it sparkles, I’m all over it, and bonus if it just so happens to be a supper comfy sweatshirt.  I picked up this embellished sweatshirt at Zara a couple of months ago.  It was one of those pieces that I found thrown over a fixture with no others in sight.  I quickly scooped it up and since it was in my size,… Read more »
