Last week Ben and I attended a friend’s party at the Hudson Hotel rooftop where we spotted one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen. The hotel is located just a few minutes away from the Columbus Circle, one of my most favorite places to shop in the City. The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed sipping rose and cheering our beautiful Birthday girl.
The forthcoming holiday weekend provides lots of opportunities for costume changes. Whether you are attending a party in the City, heading for an outdoorsy barbecue party, or planning a nighttime picnic under the fireworks, the best style advice I could give you is to start shopping now. You have exactly one week to shop for red-white-and-blue looks so they got into your mailbox before departing to your ultimate Fourth of July destination. In today’s episode of Friday Five series I propose to your attention five handbags that will definitely grab everyone’s attention this Independence Day weekend.
It’s a beauty confession time, guys. Well, I don’t even know how to tell you about that, but… I do not like facial toners. There is something about the consistency of those products and harshness of cotton rounds that simply doesn’t work with me. Even though I’m planning on following up with a toner after every time I wash my face, in reality, it rarely happens. Oftentimes I skip this important beauty routine and simply apply a serum or moisturizer after washing my face. Don’t take me wrong: I totally understand that toners are essential for keeping pH of my skin in balance and shrinking pores, but I just never inherited this beauty habit.Continue Reading
This weekend Ben and I went all the way to Shelter Island to meet our friends for the evening of delicious cocktails and endless talks. It was a fun trip (we had to take the ferry there and, of course, I requested to be photographed) and a gorgeous night out that ended up with a breathtaking sunset.
As a full-time beauty blogger, I’m constantly testing products that perhaps are above the average woman’s beauty budget. So I was thinking that it could be a great idea to create a budget-friendly tutorial for my readers. I figured it would be a great opportunity to stay in touch with what is happening in the drugstore makeup market and introduce you to my favorite beauty blogger Shireen Platt. I don’t know yet how Shireen’s experiment went (you can read about her $30 makeup challenge), but my experience with under $30 full-face makeup look happened to be more challenging than I expected.Continue Reading
Last week, Ben and I went to a Ferrari event followed by celebration of his Birthday at Norwood Club. It was a beautiful evening full of meetings with good old friends and new acquittances. While we didn’t take any photos except Snapchat at Norwood, my outfit and especially my bag got attention of Ferrari’s event photographers. Similar to what happened at New York Fashion Week, everyone seems to get obsessed with my sparkly clutch by ViaBuia. I have to say that it’s really a game changer: style it with the most boring outfit, and you’ll still receive tons of compliments as all people pay attention to is this spectacular bag.Continue Reading
