HAIR OIL 101

Ladies and gents, I have a recent hair product discovery that I neeeed to share with you.  And that is HAIR OIL. Now, to judge whether or not hair oil is for you, let me start by telling you that I have fine hair.  My issue with a lot of hair oils that I’ve used in the past, is that they had a tendency to weigh my hair down.  So mainly, I’d refrain from including in my hair routine. Recently,…

XMAS CAME EARLY

Popping in to share some photos from an amazing day / evening that I spent with the lovely team from Farfetch last week! They curated a day of festive activities all over London for a group of fashion bloggers from both the US and UK.  From playing dress up at the Shop at Bluebird in Chelsea, to the most festive dinner at Motel Studios in Shoreditch, their team pulled out all the stops and showed us the most magical holiday experience a…

HOLIDAY FEVER

I don’t know about you guys, but I have some SERIOUS festive fever.  It’s my first December in London, and I cannot get over how magical this city feels.  Once Halloween was over, things really started to heat up on the X-mas front.  London legit pulls out ALL the stops.  From the decorations on shopping streets like Oxford and Carnaby, to each hotel trying to out-do the next with the tallest tree, I can’t say I’ve ever been more excited about the…

DECEMBER, I SEE YOU

Damn, I can't believe it's already that time of year! This week is that weird in-between week - those few days that fall smack in the middle of Thanksgiving and December where you sortttt of feel like you can catch your breath? You know, right before the madness of Christmas parties, holiday travel, and overload on family time begins? I don't know about you, but I'm caffeinating hard this week, getting organized, and planning ahead so the…

GIFTING: DAINTY GOLD EVERYTHING

Delicate, dainty, gold on gold EVERYTHING. When it comes to jewelry, the more minimalist (in my book), the better. I first discovered Astrid Miyu, a UK based Jewelry brand, on a trip across the pond last year. I stumbled into their pop-up shop in Shoreditch after a day of exploring London and literally fell in LOVE. Their designs are flawless, simple, and this perfect mix of classic and edgy.…

COPENHAGEN, YOU STOLE MY HEART

Copenhagen was D-R-E-A-M-Y.  From the food, to the people, the city has this easy living vibe that I couldn’t get enough of.  They are some of the happiest people on earth – we should really take a tip from them.  Oh, and did I mention HYGGE?!  It’s like, they just know how to live man. The city itself has the most gorgeous architecture everywhere you turn with the perfect mix of historic charm and modern touches.  My weekend consisted of a…

COZY SWEATERS, LONDON STYLE

My first fall in London calls for cozy EVERYTHING. And unlike volatile NYC weather, there's been a slight chill in the air since aboutttt September around these parts. I am not complaining because there is nothing I’d rather do than get my hands on the coziest of sweaters and jackets I can find, and start to think about hibernation mode (you knowwww, comfort food, candles, netflix)?!…

FIERCELY FEMININE

Music has always been a huuuuge part of my identity and creative spirit. I like to start off my week with a morning run in the park, blasting my favorite pump up songs to give myself a swift kick in the ass. Music has just always given me that buzz. And if we’re keeping it real, all of those songs are sung by mah LADIES. From Rihanna, Bey, and Lady Gaga to newer artists like SZA and Halsey that have…
