I was recently approached to test out the latest Pixel XL by Google in the color Really Blue. When I was growing up and asked what color I wanted to paint my room, I chose an exterior blue. The type of paint you typically cover the outside of the house, but I wanted it for my bedroom. My mom was skeptical, but it turned out beautiful. I also picked out matching blue cloud sheets for my bed. Long story short, I loved the color blue.
I rarely have birthday parties, but given this was a big milestone I wanted to do something special. I dreamed of having a beautiful dinner for all my close girlfriends who have been there for me and with me along the way. A nice thank you for the memories and laughs.
My only, and I mean only choice for a venue was Black Barn. From the first time I visited, I fell in love with the upscale yet laid back atmosphere. A very rare combination you won’t find anywhere else in New York City. The moment you walk through the big heavy doors, you’re taken out of the city and placed in a beautiful oasis. Especially with the number of private rooms they have available for hosting private parties.
The food is phenomenal as well. You simply cannot go wrong when ordering. Each ingredient is fresh and often bought from the local farmers market. My mouth is salivating just thinking about it. So yes, for my birthday it was Black Barn or Bust. This was the only place I could imagine hosting my friends. Luckily for me and my guest, not only were they happy to have us but were incredibly helpful when setting up the dinner. In a private room, they started the feast with sabering champagne (check out my Instagram), and every type of crafted cocktails you could imagine. Topping it off with a four-course meal everyone is able to enjoy (even the glutton intolerant).
To make the occasion even more phenomenal, I wore a beautiful gold dress by Julie Brown NYC. The beading around the collar and cuff made this a stunning fit for the occasion. Plus, it is so forgiving and comfortable, even after consuming so much delicious food!
If you knew tights would fight cellulite while you wore them, would you buy them? Is that even a question!
These item M6 beauty tights do just that, fight cellulite while wearing them. I gave them a test recently while having a massive shoot day. I was on my feet the whole day when I wore the black opaque tights.
This is what I noticed:
I feel like it was just Halloween, now we are passed Thanksgiving. Where did the time go?
Today I would like to share a few of my holiday favorites with the help of PopSugar’s November Must Have box. It is by far my favorite monthly subscription box, loaded with goodies for everyone. My personal beloved piece is always the yummy snacks, but there are a number of star pieces I actually use daily. Here are my holiday favorites from November:
A week ago I received the October Must Have Box from Popsugar. It is by far my favorite curated monthly box I have received! It was so thoughtfully crafted with all the fall must-haves, including some yummy Cocoa Mix. I want to share what was inside plus how you can get $5 off your first box!
