What better way to show the world that you’re a badass female who cares about the rights of others than wearing it on your sleeve. Show people you care about women’s rights, the rights of minorities, the LBGT community, unity, and equality for all. Show society that you will not stand for the government trying to take these basic human rights away, and that you will not be silenced by the people in power or by those that simply don’t understand. #GIRLPOWER  Modern Girl Blitz, $10 Sick Girls Official, $8  Riot Creeps, $8         Wildflower & Company, $9.50    Little Arrow Studio,Read More →

There’s no place like New York City, especially around the holidays. My boyfriend and I went for my Birthday (December 23rd), and Christmas Eve. There was so much to do and see, so we choose the top holiday spots, along with my some of my favorites. December 22, 2016 – Park Central Hotel We stayed at the Park Central Hotel in a premier room located in Midtown. It was convenient because it was three blocks from Central Park, about a half mile from Times Square, and located right between the upper east side and the upper west side. Times Square I’ve been to Times Square manyRead More →

I found this Spicy Avocado Sandwich recipe on The Coveteaur, and my boyfriend and I decided to make it. You really can’t go wrong with eggs and Avocado–perfect day or night.  Also, if your having friends over for Sunday brunch, it’s easy to make and would go great with Mimosas. We substituted the bacon for turkey bacon to make it a little bit healthier, and sometimes we’ll use croissants fresh from the bakery instead of ciabatta. Ingredients: – 2 tbsp mayonnaise – 1-2 tsp chalula (more or less depending on taste) – 1/2 avocado, sliced – 5-7 pieces aged gruyere, sliced – 3-5 slices of bacon, fried – 2Read More →

Just a few years ago, a lot of people would consider sneakers to be a part of their workout attire, or what they’d wear to run errands in on a lazy Sunday. Labels like Adidas and Puma, that were big in the ‘80s and ‘90s are back. Now new designers are emerging and capitalizing in on the trend. Not long ago, sneakers wouldn’t have been seen in most office settings, now in many they’re considered acceptable work attire—if worn correctly. They’ve been seen at NYFW, on the red carpet, and on trendsetters and celebrities as everyday wear. Here are some examples of how to look polished, andRead More →

In December like millions of others, I’ll be flying back home for the holidays. Take it from someone who’s had her fair share of flight drama, like a flight delayed overnight, canceled because of bad weather, luggage lost twice (one of the times it took four days to receive!), and lost my license the day before flying…that I’ve learned what and what not to pack in my carry on bag. A good book.  The Girls, $16.20 Makeup bag / samples. Usually when I buy makeup, they give free samples. I save those and pack them in my carry on.

I think it all started with my love for the movie Marie Antoinette. The scene where she’s eating all the desserts, made me want cake, éclairs and macaroons ASAP. I had heard of Bottega Louie, and one day I was walking out of the apartment I had just moved into, and saw it was a few blocks down the street and decided to walk in. OMG…I became obsessed! It takes a lot of self-control to not walk in every time I pass by and order one of their desserts or buy a box of macaroons. Last year I bought my sister and my mom aRead More →
