New York Fashion Week is notoriously fast-paced, and offers an abundance of opportunities to shoot compelling photos. Capturing the essence of Fashion Week can be tricky, but I’ve mastered a few foolproof ways to get those perfect shots with the help of Google’s Pixel 2. Here’s how I capture runway trends, backstage beauty, street style, and everything in between.
If you haven’t heard, Sephora recently revamped their entire online beauty community. Now there are several ways to engage with other beauty enthusiasts to ask questions, be inspired, and gain great recommendations. Find out why you should check this community out!
Recently, I was invited to Banana Republic to host a style party! A group of amazing influencers along with myself modeled beautiful summer styles. The party took place at the Fifth Avenue location of Banana Republic here in New York City. I had so much fun and wanted to share with all of you what the event was like!
I recently had the privilege of testing out Purpletale’s five-step facial. Purpletale is a Korean skin care movement, with the notion ‘if you look good, you’ll feel good, and if you feel good you’ll do good’. The brand is all about the amazing pamper sessions that nourish our souls. After hearing so many raving reviews of Purpletale, and Korean beauty as a whole, I was super interested in trying it myself.
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 want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! I hope you are with loved ones and celebrating with lots of food. A family favorite of ours is a big basket of Harry & David treats! I believe it was either my grandpa or my dad who started the tradition of sending these out to all our family members. I remember receiving the catalog and picking out which boxset we would send each year.
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.
