Mani Mondays

Sep 22, 2014

It has been far too long since I have given space, on this here blog, for my love of a well done mani. To kick things off, a little mini nail design mani I attempted over the weekend.

Fashion// NYFW 2014 Trends

Sep 16, 2014

The insanity of NYFW has come and gone (and hopefully in the future I will be there to take it all). For now I must live vicarious through the instagram accounts, blogs, and fashion mag coverage of the creme de la  creme o the fashion world. Yes, Spring 2015 gave us copious amounts of florals and pastels, however there were some very unique trends to pop up on the runaway.

Warby Parker Fall 2014 Collection

Sep 3, 2014


When the folks at Warby Parker reached out to me about their upcoming collection I literally squealed. Okay, that might be a little dramatic, but let's just say I was happy and verbally expressed so, much to my boyfriend's surprise. In all honestly, I have always loved Warby Parker, having recently snagged myself a pair. What is so awesome about the brand is that for every pair sold, a pair is given to someone in need with Buy a Pair Give a Pair. If that doesn't grab your attention, they also offer the option to try it before you buy it with their Home Try-On program.

The new collection, that launches today, does not disappoint, and has something for everyone. The folks at Warby Parker are launching nine new shapes with this collection. The frames come in drool worthy motifs such as crystal and tortoise. My favorite pair, well pairs, are the Coley Crystal and the Annette Petal Tortoise. They are the perfect blend of polished femininity and chicness.
