Obsessed is an understatement when describing how I feel about MAKE! I was introduced to the brand at the Birchbox breakfast event held at the Birchbox store in Soho and learned all about the NYC-based brand. This beauty brand is so modern from the colors to the packaging and really takes it to a whole new level when it comes to makeup and art! Each season MAKE will collaborate with two makeup artists to create a collection and one-third of sales will be donated to the We See Beauty Foundation which funds next generation businesses in America. The colors are so vibrant and I cant get over how innovative and original the packaging is compared to so many other makeup brands currently on the market! My fave product from my bag of goodies would have to be the Bronze Molten Shadow. It is so vibrant, creamy, and pigmented and is perfect for a holiday makeup look or a night out! Make sure to head to Birchbox and We See Beauty to purchase these awesome products to enhance your beauty this holiday season! Don't forget to follow me on Instagram to see a makeup look I created with my MAKE products!

Birchbox X Benefit Birchbloggers Beauty Bash!


Birchbox and Benefit cosmetics teamed up to send my sister Jaz and I some of their amazing makeup products and party favors to host our own Beauty Bash! We were super excited to host this little shindig and we decided to turn it into a big Birchbloggers event and invited some of our favorite Birchblogger gals! Jaz and I are both Birchbloggers so it was fun to catch up with the ladies we've met through other Birchbox events to talk beauty, fashion, and of course blogging. The weather here in NY happened to be just perfect for an outdoor fiesta so we held it on my rooftop sundeck in Midtown Manhattan. We popped open the champagne, ordered some pizza, and indulged heavily on sweets so it was pretty much the perfect outdoor brunch scene. We had way too much fun and I'm so grateful to both Birchbox X Benefit Cosmetics for making this happen! By the way, the Benefit Push Up Liner is my favorite eyeliner EVER! I will be doing a review on all of my new Benefit products soon so keep an eye out for that! Follow me on Instagram for more photos of the Beauty Bash! Happy Monday and have a great week! XO

Solstice in Times Square: Athleta Mind Over Madness Yoga


I started off the first day of summer with a yoga session in the middle of Times Square! Every year Times Square and performance apparel brand Athleta join to celebrate the summer solstice with a day of yoga classes in Times Square. Not only do they provide free yoga classes all day, they also give away so many goodies like yoga mats, coconut water, snack bars, and magazines! This is my second time attending and I must say, although it takes place in one of the busiest locations in the world, it is one of the most peaceful, relaxing, and rejuvenating experiences! I feel empowered, blessed, and grateful to live in such an amazing city and the opportunity to soak in the incredible energy of the city while doing yoga is pretty awesome! It was the perfect way to welcome in the summer season and I can't wait to do it again next year!

I was able to attend another Birchbloggers breakfast recently and I learned all about beauty brand Liz Earle! Each blogger went home with three full skincare products and I must say I am completely in love with these products! They have done wonders for my skin and my skin is softer than ever. All winter long I've been on the hunt for something that won't dry out my skin and the Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is what I've been searching for. It's so different from any cleanser I've tried and I finally have a radiant glow after this harsh New York winter. Each product contains natural ingredients like eucalyptus, Aloe Vera, and cocoa butter that refresh and rejuvenate the skin and I am so excited to continue seeing great results as I continue using these products! You can pick up each of these products and more on Birchbox!

Miss Jessie's Birchbloggers Event!


I've always wanted to give Miss Jessie's hair products a try so I was beyond excited when I was invited by Birchbox to attend the Miss Jessie's Birchbloggers event at their hair salon in Soho. I met founder Miko Branch and she gave hair demos on four different girls with different textures of curly hair. I have curly hair myself so it was great to learn so many new and different techniques of how to style it. Not only did I learn all of these tips and tricks, I also got to go home with three of the newest Miss Jessie's natural hair care products from the line. I finally gave them a try and my favorite is definitely Transitioner's Magic! It's great for those of us who have chemically treated hair or girls who do a lot straightening which causes the hair to not always curl as it naturally would due to heat styling! I love these products and I'm excited to start letting my natural curls run wild!

I've slowly been transitioning into the world of all natural and organic products! I've started with skincare and now I'm moving into makeup thanks to W3ll People. I learned about the makeup brand when I attended the BirchBloggers breakfast about a month ago. Shirley Pinkson introduced us to the brand and told us everything we wanted to know and more about what makes W3ll People truly different from other makeup brands. We not only went home with some of these amazing products but we were even able to get our makeup done afterwards! I must say I am truly impressed with W3ll People makeup and I love that I can now apply makeup that I know can enhance my beauty without chemicals or other harsh ingredients! I'm so happy I was able to attend this breakfast and meet inspirational women who care enough to make products that are safe and effective at the same time. You can purchase W3ll People products on W3ll People or on Birchbox!

A Taste of Spring!


The weekend brought about really pleasant weather in NY so my sister and I took our usual stroll through Central Park! Surprisingly the lake was completely frozen but it still looked so beautiful! I always enjoy coming here to just relax and take in the scenery. I didn't want to leave and I plan on spending a lot of my spring and summer days soaking in the sunshine right in this little spot. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
