You Have To Remain Open To Receive All That You Are Meant to Have.

We’ve read your fair share of self help books and follow enough “go getters” to have heard every single affirmation known to man or woman but there are still those that resonate and really rings true every time we hear or, even better, practice them. “Ask and ye shall receive.” Yo, it’s biblical. The self…

Spring Outerwear: Blazer/Jacket Moment

It’s not warm enough for wearing only your shirts and tees but not cold enough for a coat. What’s a girl to do? Dig deep into your closet and pull out your light jackets and blazers. I know, it’s been a long winter but Mother Nature seems to be in a great mood and is…

Brick Wall and a Teddy Bear Coat

Who can resist snapping some pictures in front of a brick wall? Not one soul. The days are getting warmer but my little teddy bear fuschia jacket is perfect for these not so warm Spring days. Most people opted for the tan or brown teddy coats but this pink/fuschia color is perfect to usher in…

BLK/WHT

Interestedly enough, we do a lot of laughing. You can’t tell from these images because our in house photog, John Ricard, likes to capture those somber moments. You know the moments pre or post laughter or deep cackle. Or those times where we are dog tired from a day of walking the city streets. We…

Kings Theatre: Brooklyn’s Finest Edition

The Kings Theatre, formerly Loew’s Kings Theatre, is a live performance venue in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. Opened by Loew’s Theatres as a movie palace in 1929 and closed in 1977, the theater sat empty for decades until a complete renovation was initiated in 2010. I recently got a chance to…

Cookies and Chill: Doubletree (Bedford Glen)

I did not intentionally plan a weekend getaway from NYC but it so happens that my husband wanted to visit a jiu jitsu school in Boston so who am I to say no to a road trip? As the work week went on, from the first time he mentioned the trip, I anticipated the get…

New Showrooms: Red Hook Ikea Edition

There is nothing better than a lazy Sunday afternoon trip to Ikea! We make it our mission to walk through the entire showroom and then through the Marketplace. There is something to see in every corner and every step I take moves me closer to filling my big yellow Ikea bag with Norwegian goodies. Our…

Soap & Glory: Pretty Scents Edition

In the midst of all of my Christmas shopping a few months back, I picked up this Soap & Glory bath and body gift set. It was on sale at a drug store (Walgreens, CVS or Rite Aid–I can’t remember which one) and the sweetest salesperson had a table set up, she was dressed in…

Do You Own or Rent?

Super personal question, right? There is a clear and definite answer to the question and most people buy or rent for specific purposes. Many of us can’t afford to buy and many of us can’t afford to rent! There is a play on words there. I’ve met plenty of renters who often say that the…

Statement Coat: Do Something Different

Mixing the old and the new, high and the low is essential in building style. No one should be wrapped in one bran or one trend. It makes for a look that does not strike interesting or feel authentic. I love a mix of textures and prints. I am a sucker for wearing all thing…

Art On My Wall: Basquiat

What better was to spend a sleepy Sunday than to visit the magical Brooklyn Museum of Art. The building is truly this majestic place right in the middle of the Prospect Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn. If you have to walk, run or jog, please do get there to catch the “One Basquiat” show currently on…

Style Fashion Week: Cipriani

  It’s New York Fashion Week and all of New York City (I exaggerate, not all of New York City) is enjoying the scenes, the festivities and the shows. I am not a fashionista and not invited to most shows and I rely on the recap done by the New York TimesĀ for my season looks…
