marula brunch club

Sunday funday #marulabrunchclub

Sun’s out, we’re out! Welcome to one of my favorite weekend festivities, girls brunch. After a whirlwind of prepping with Marula for a day of fun, we landed at The Corner, bathing in summer’s light window-side after that sun got just a twinge too hot to stay outdoors. With summer schedules in full swing, it’s nearly impossible to get the whole squad together, but the four of us were happy to enjoy a short escape from the rush. Cherish your friends! They’re your support group, cheerleaders, confidants, and partners in crime – and I don’t know what I would do without them. Many thanks to Marula for sending us on such a wonderful escapade to enjoy our afternoon together. Here’s the recap! photography:FRIENDS | camera:iPHONE 6 | hair products c/o:MARULA | hair extensions c/o:IRRESISTIBLE ME I must say, having a squad of super models can have it’s challenges ;) But one of the most fun parts of being girls is getting ready together for a night (or day) out on the town. Fully loaded with some incredible gift …

when a warm breeze blows

A week of nothing to do but soak in bliss. A stretch of sandy beaches, pina colada in hand, and endless tacos on the horizon. It’s vacation in Mexico! The latest adventure: outskirts of Cancun with a crew of 10 for the week. Welcome to the cabana life. All-inclusive is definitely the way to go, and there was no shortage of champagne and cocktails on our 10 day adventure in Cancun at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. A moment to breath fresh, unworried air – priceless. photography:FRIENDS | camera:iPHONE 6 | shorts:ONE TEASPOON | statement necklace c/o:STICKS + STONES | sunglasses:RAYBAN | marble bag c/o:LUXE BLOGGER | perfume c/o:MAISON MARGIELA Beach essentials for the trip: some statement jewelry courtesy of Sticks + Stones along with a new scent by Maison Margiela and of course – go-to RayBan sunnies. Advise for beach-centric vacations – don’t over pack. The likelihood of you changing out of a swimsuit and cover more than 1-2 times are little to none. Instead, focus on swimwear and lightweight pieces that work well over a …

how to get a good nights sleep

how to get the best night’s sleep, even with a lawless, overloaded lifestyle

Daylight Savings is just around the corner, and who’s worried about not getting a good night’s sleep? This week has been another firecracker with a busy work schedule and St. Patty’s day festivities off to an early start. My office calendar is exploding with color-coded tabs, and while I should be getting some extra zzzz’s to stay on top of my A-game, sometimes the after-party is too good to resist. I’ll sleep when I’m dead. Or at least, maximize my time when I am awake. They key to functioning at the speed of my digestive system after devouring corned beef, cabbage and a few pints of beer?… a great night’s sleep. Contrary to popular belief, it really is possible to squeeze in a great night of re-charging between even the most overlapping plans. How to manage? Here are some of my tricks to get a great night’s sleep, even with a schedule as lawless as mine. 1. Pencil it in. A fashion blogger’s best friend: a planner, with lots of space on each day, and …

not the same as I was with you

Back where we started, and doin’ just fine. Change is in the water, and the water feels right. The sky is pale, and the faint smell of my packed sandwich is somehow suffocating. The train is in motion, and it’s moving fast – goodbye NYC, the journey back to where it started begins. The mood? Calm. Still like the water in the windless exterior on the other side of the glass. Out there it’s deceivingly cold, with only a faint chill creeping through the window sill. Song on repeat: Frenship’s Capsize. 8 hours left to go and I’ll once again be home. Catching up on notes from the week, sorting through holiday photos reliving time well spent. Giving in to the journey set before me, today and for the years to come. Contemplating life’s most recent twists and turns, and once again find myself facing uncertainty… but with open arms. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III |ootd c/o:LULU’S | luxury sterling silver and diamond jewelry c/o:MICHAEL HILL Change is inevitable. I’m only grateful for those opportunities that …

new years resolutions 101 and how to stick with them

Just kidding, if I had the answer to that I’d have flat 6 pack abs from a rigorous active routine, be juicing every morning, and actually be taking the time to do my hair on weekdays. Let’s face it, we all struggle with meeting the expectations that are put on us by friends, family, coworkers and worse – ourselves. And there’s no other time that’s more apparent than New Years. Somehow inspired by the unmarked calendar, people gaze steadily forward. Sure that this time, they’re going to follow through. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not discouraging you. In fact, New Year’s is one of my favorite holidays as it represents a fresh start, new beginnings and yes – New Years resolutions. I quite savor the time of year to look forward with an untarnished canvas laying before me. But it’s important to remember amidst your ambitions, not to get lost in trying to become someone whom we are not, or becoming discouraged when we fail. Though I can admit to often falling in line with …
