Happy Friday loves. How was everyone’s week? Tomorrow is my Birthday and I am very excited. The celebrating actually started last night when Casey surprised me with tickets to see Romeo & Juliet at Lincoln Center. As someone who danced ballet and pointe for many years, watching this performance was pretty incredible. I definitely got choked up at the end when the dancers came out and took their bows. Such amazing talent!
Tonight we are getting together at my new favorite spot in Williamsburg, Midnights, (remember this post?) for a low key gathering with lots of rosé, oysters and french fries. Saturday is my actual Birthday, but I have no idea what we are doing because it’s a surprise, which I love. I’ll be sure to share the details with you guys next week. :)
Happy Birthday to all you June babies and I hope everyone has a fun and fabulous weekend!
Lately I’ve been into wearing simple pieces like jeans and button-downs and adding fun accessories to pack a bit of punch. With this outfit I opted for some pattern play (stripes x leopard) and finally got to break out my new strappy lace-up heels from Schutz.
This past Saturday was a busy one. I tried a Tabata core class for the first time, which makes laughing, sneezing or getting up from sitting down, particularly painful because I am so sore! Casey and I had a nice breakfast at one of our favorite cafes and then had a slew of parties to go to (one going away party for a dear friend of mine, one Birthday party for a client of mine and a wrap party for Casey’s job at Netflix), and had a great time bouncing around the city all night.
Now onto the outfit! I just bought this jumpsuit from Zara and loved how breezy and comfortable it was to wear…read more >
Just a quick hello from California! We are off to Disneyland today (YAY!) but I wanted to share a couple snaps my Dad took yesterday. I will share more photos in a roundup post once I’m back from this trip, but for now here is what I wore during our visit to Palos Verdes.
I plan on writing a longer post about my total hair transformation from having raspberry red hair to being bright blonde very soon, but for now I just wanted to share these two photos from the past two days.
The top photo is my hair on Tuesday before heading to Arrojo to see my colorist Francesca. My roots were growing out and I felt like the blonde was looking a little brassy, so I wanted to get a refresh. We decided to do more highlights and tone it so that the blonde was on the cooler side, but still maintain some interesting dimension by working in my natural light brown throughout the highlights. She worked her magic to create the final product below, which was taken yesterday, and I am so happy with how my hair turned out! I highly recommend you guys going to see Francesca at the Williamsburg location if you live locally – she’s pretty freaking awesome.
I am flying to Texas today for my dear friend and old roommate’s wedding so I’m signing off a bit early this week, but I hope you all have a fantastic holiday weekend with whatever you have planned! xo
Lately I’ve noticed that instead of buying new clothing, I’ve been splurging a bit more on nicer home accessories, such as bougie candles and stylish tchotchkes. Don’t get me wrong, I really don’t discriminate when it comes to candles as long as they don’t give me a headache and aren’t too overpowering. But there is something special about treating myself to a candle (or perfume) from Diptyque or Le Labo, that brings me joy. Maybe it’s because it feels like an affordable way to indulge in a guilty pleasure, or maybe it’s because there is something therapeutic and calming about lighting an amazing smelling candle at the end of the day. Who knows?! Regardless, life is short, so I say…treat yo’self! And with that said, I give you eight of my current favorite bougie candles worth buying. xo
