While exploring Greenwich Village during the food tour, I completely fell in love with the tree lined streets and classic brownstones. I took a moment to take a quick photo shoot after finding this beautiful stoop. Each time I visit New York, I convince myself that should move there. I love the charm, the idea of walking everywhere and there's always something exciting happening. Maybe one day!! More about this look after the break..
A few weeks ago, I took a couple days off to unwind in New York with a few friends. While there, I had the pleasure of taking a Foods of NY Tour. We decided on the Original Greenwich Village Tour since is was a part of New York that we have not fully explored yet and wanted to discover its rich Italian history and culture. I had the best time trying delectable bites from all the "mom and pop" restaurants and learning about the neighborhood. Read more about each delicious restaurant after the break...
After seeing colored lace all over the runways, I have become a huge fan. So when I was shopping for my look at H&M, this beautiful red lace dress really caught my eye. It is perfect for any holiday party. The color is vibrant and rich, and the lace feels so special. I also love the flirty hem and it fits so perfectly! I paired the dress with an H&M sequin coat, that adds a nice touch of sparkle. Can’t wait to wear this look for a holiday event! H&M has always been my go-to shopping destination to find great on-trend pieces that have that special something.
Every holiday season, I am on the hunt for the best presents for all my family and friends. I was ecstatic to hear that Target and TOMS are teaming up on a limited-edition collection that reminded me of what true holiday spirit meant. Carrying on the TOMS' One for One model, with each item purchased from this collection, a gift will be given to a person in need, whether it’s a blanket, a meal, or a pair of shoes. When I heard about this, my heart smiled and I instantly knew what gifts I would be giving this year. Not only is each piece beautifully made and designed, but they are also helping others in need. Here are some of my favorites from the collaboration.
It seemed like summer was never going to end in LA. Even though I love the warm sun shining on me, I was beginning to long for cooler weather and fall dressing. Finally, last week it became chillier and I was so excited to bring out my coats and sweaters. Now that I am planning out my fall wardrobe, I decided to DIY a sweater to add a fun, personal touch. After seeing rhinestone sweaters in all my favorite boutiques, I decided to create and share an easy to follow tutorial on how to make one at home. I have partnered with PayPal to show you how easy it is to purchase supplies on the go. I went to the fashion district in downtown LA and purchased all the supplies with my PayPal mobile app. It was so easy, and I was literally in and out of the store and was able to pay in minutes using PayPal. Then, picked up a beautiful emerald sweater, my favorite jewel tone color for fall at a store down the street. The whole process of opening my app and searching for the merchant to pay took just a few minutes, while the actual time it took me to #paypalit was less than 1 minute. Afterwards, I began to DIY at home. Read more about the full tutorial after the break…
