Snail mail is completely underrated. I love receiving a beautiful handwritten letter in the mail. The intricate design, the cute note, the pretty paper… It makes my heart so happy. When I am sending a gift, or a thank you card, I thoroughly enjoy shifting through the handmade letter options picking out the right card for that person in mind. It’s that last personal touch that completes the gift or shares the sentiment.
So when I heard about Basic Invite and the plethora of custom-made cards they carried, I felt like a kid in a candy shop. From thank you notes to special announcements ( ehm like personalized graduation announcements that is right around the corner), Basic Invite offers a card for every celebration. And they are so glamorous, take a look!

Voices of rural women are being heard this month at the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62). The topics range from abuse against women, to labor laws, women in politics, giving the tools and support to empower women, and how to educate men in respecting women. I had the opportunity in talk with several world leaders on a more casual basis while listening to different panels. These are the topics, people, and organizations that stood out the most. Here is the future of Gender Equality In Rural Areas:
“We can all make a difference. We need to work hard. Believe in ourselves, never give up and take those opportunities for growth and change…”
Last week I attended the ECOSOC Youth Forum at the United Nations. ECOSOC stands for The Economic and Social Council at the UN where members from around the world come together to discuss innovative sustainability solutions, policy changes, and development goals.
The Youth Forum strives to “brings the voice of youth into the discussion of the Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 development agenda”- UN.org. One way in which they are striving to do this is through the 17 SDGs.
Earlier this month, I attended Cat Footwear “Go Boldly” event in their showroom. I knew of the brand prior to going but was unaware of the women’s shoes they produced. I was actually really impressed by the designs and aesthetics. I typically remembered Cat footwear being very industrial and masculine. While there are still some masculine components to the shoes, I can see how they used softer materials and hues to make it more feminine.
Today Google released the latest innovated technology that will soon hit the marketplace and our homes. I was invited as a Team Pixel Ambassador to attend the big announcement in person held at the Jazz Center in San Francisco. Here are all the details on what to expect next from Google.
To kick off the big announcement, I met the Google Team Pixel the night before at their San Francisco offices. I met other members from across the country and connected with familiar Pixel users.
I wanted to take a minute to share my absolute condolence to those impacted by the natural disasters in both Mexico City and Puerto Rico. I have met the most incredible people and have loved ones from both locations. My heart goes out to everyone who is suffering. Our world needs our help.
It is finally starting to feel like Summer here in the city! The warm weather has arrived, and what better way to celebrate than with some new shoes!
I recently attended the Sebago Fall & Winter 2017 Press Preview that took place close to Carnegie Hall. It is one of my favorite areas of the city, chock full of history. The music hall has housed some of the most incredible musicians of our time, and for many years Bill Cunningham resided upstairs. For that reason alone, I simply love the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood.
Tuesday, May 30th I attended the US launch of the brand Kimoa. It was held at the Rivington Hotel’s S’Zen Lounge in the lower east side. The clothing company is styled after Southern California and carried an easy-going beach vibe. There were screen printed tees, sweatshirts, and dresses for women. There were board shorts, tanks, tees for men. The fabrics were super soft and some laser burned for effect. The collection also includes surfboards, skateboards, and a few accessories. In fact, a surfboard displayed the sunglass and hat collections.
