grana silk holiday dress

holiday fashion guide for the minimalist

Snowflakes drop heavily against the darkened NYC skyline, then flitter away suddenly with each breath of wind. White lines the window sills and rooftops. The sky is darkened, yet somehow spirits are light. Twinkling lights from street to the highest high rise, the shops have begun their elaborate display of Christmas. A tree every-other door, ornaments dangling from store windows tantalizing passerbys with an overwhelming urgency for shopping. Restaurant windows glow with a warm light and scene of smiling faces toasting to the day, a most welcoming sight from the cold of the streets. Visitors and NY locals alike flood the streets, bundled in down coats with hoods up, rushing to find the last items from their holiday list. It’s Christmas in New York, the most magical time of year. I’ve never been one for much holiday decorations, but I must say, it’s a beautiful sight to behold. It’s as if the world for a moment forgets the harsh cold of winter – warmed by thoughts of family and festivities to come. And so many …

name luxury activewear bag

versatility at its finest, NAME activewear review

Gym, then coffee date. Office to happy hour. Yoga to the market. With people overwhelmed with too much to do and too little time, it’s unusual for one to be able to step out of the house for just one thing. My list is normally a mile long of a few errands I’ve been putting off, some element of work and probably trying to squeeze in some social time between appointments. In NYC, that means packing a change of shoes, my laptop and sometimes even a change of clothes. Versatility is key for my lifestyle. If the stuff I tote along with me can’t keep up, its going to end up staying in the closet. In the era of wearable technology, robotics and AI – why can’t a girl get a bag that’s just well, smarter? That’s why I’ve partnered with NAME, a luxury fashion brand to introduce their newest activewear bag. Taking a stance on redefining luxury, NAME understands that a women of our generation seek not only beauty and elegance in fashion, but …

st. thomas virgin islands, suits on drinks up

Pop, and cheers all around. The first bottle of champaign spills bubbles onto the white deck. Laughter and chatter can be heard over the hum of the charter’s engine. The sea captain smiles as the group of merry toast to the day. Who knew ocean spray and champagne paired together so nicely. The sea had never looked so blue, and rocky islands and sandy shores specked the otherwise perfectly still waters in the distance. It was charter day. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR + KRISTINA PETRICK + SOME STOLEN FROM FRIENDS | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | swimwear c/o:NüN BANGKOK | activewear c/o:NüN BANGKOK | travel bag c/o:LO & SONS | cashmere travel blanket and eyemask c/o:MASON | laceup sandals c/o:OTBT Welcome to the travel blog recap of the Virgin Islands. A trip made during the peak traveling time (and by that I mean 1 week exactly prior to “in-season”). The early start to vacationing gave us the tropical world to explore on our own, with little traffic from other tourists in the area. We spend the week just …

forever a fantasy

You know those dreams you used to have as a child… with unicorns in the sky and the power of the wind beneath your wings? With magical trolls as your best friends and some pending evil to ward away. I believe that part of our childhood fantasy lives on forever. It inspires you, reminds you that there’s something special inside everyone, and drives you to keep dreaming – no matter how that dream may change with time. That part in our lives has a power of its own. A freedom. A moment where anything is possible, if only in our dreams. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR + KRISTINA PETRICK | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | sterling silver ring c/o:AURUM (take 25% off with code: TAKE25PC) I choose to live that reality, embracing the boundless journey on the flip side. Something about the ethereal beauty of certain things in this world transport me there. The sky at dusk, a clear full moon, staring into the crashing waves of the sea. The prolonged glance of a stranger or the melody of your favorite …
