Weekend Recap: BUST Magazine Craftacular

This weekend we attended the most awesome event of the weekend in SoHo — the BUST Magazine Craftacular. Tons of vendors put up their booths full of handmade jewelry, clothes, soaps, and more. Red Jacket was giving out free juice (which was delicious) and everyone was ready to shop for handcrafted goods by top notch sellers.




Say tuned for more on our favorite vendors and pieces we couldn’t live without!

Hand Motions

We use our hands for everything — when writing, meeting someone new, exchanging money with a cashier, and so much more. We speak with our hands. It’s super important to take care of them!

It’s obvious and simple but sometimes we don’t even think about the appearance of our nails because we are more focused on how our hair or makeup looks. We totally forget about keeping our hands in tip top shape.

We live in a world where appearance is important. Whether you have a professional office job or you are a sales associate at a retail store, your hands should reflect that you are serious about your profession. If you’re going on an interview, make sure to have fresh clean nails — whether or not you have polish on or not.

I let my hands get spoiled today and went and got a manicure! I usually try to do my own nails because it saves money… But I never clean up my cuticles. Getting your nails done professionally is great to do every now and then. I also picked out a bright color to reflect my mood for spring. It’s called Boat House by Essie.



Take care of those hands! You never know who you’re going to meet.

Spring Scents: Favorites

Spring makes me crave being surrounded by the scent of blooming flowers, crashing waves and fresh green grass. It’s finally getting warm here and I’m loving it! However, New York isn’t known for it’s rosy scented streets and miles of green grass… But I’ll let you in on my little secret to make living in New York smell even better than sitting in a bed of roses.

Exhibit A: Fresh Cut Roses from Yankee Candle. It is the most perfect candle I have ever encountered… It might even be better than the Red Velvet Cupcake scented candle I had during Christmas time!


And you can make yourself smell like optimism and energy (according to Sephora’s product bio… Bet you never smelled optimism, but now you can!) My favorite perfume of all time! Dior Addict 2. Mine only has a drop left, must buy a new one!


And on the go! Marc Jacobs LOLA. Perfect for a quick burst of scented beauty. It’s even a roll-on fragrance.


We may not have a ton of green or fresh scented flowers but we have… Sephora, Macy’s, Bergdorf and Bloomingdale’s who have associates that want to spritz us with beauty every day.

Avoid the cake

Hi loves,
Today was a beautiful day in New York. It was chilly in the morning but by afternoon the sun was out and my make up was melting off. Luckily i packed my bareminerals with me, it is my new go to product for this season. I love how bareminerals matte powder foundation perfects my skin i add a bit of bronzer under my cheek bones for structure and a bit of glow and the veil adds a perfect translucent finish.
