Estée Lauder Remembers A “ not so nice, not so generous” Elizabeth Arden


So I've had my hands on Estée Lauder - A Success Story for quite sometimes now and have just gotten around to finishing it this past last week. I believe what motivated me to finish this book may have been New York fashion week coming to an end.

Hashtag: So Long NY Fashion Week!

Because the book was so indebt, insightful and just downright behind the scenes real I thought I'd feature a chapter from the book that was the most interesting to me. Estée lets us into the relationship she had with the ever so iconic Elizabeth Arden, the Elizabeth Arden she knew of..that is.

On Thin Ice // Marie Claire September Issue 2016


It was quite alarming to be greeted by the huge ice glacier cave of Mendenhall, just below Alaska just at the peek of a page turn after the editorial spread featuring Sarah Jessica  Parkers story. The photo stands true to life and true to color. A vibrant sneaky shined ice polished cave that Marie Claire’s creative Director Nina Garcia stands just in the belly in. The caption below reads: Within a year or two all the ice glacier caves that make up Alaska will be melted.

Editor's Letter // October


Very well October so we meet again. :)
May we all very well agree that fall is just about everyones favorite time of year?
The leaves and the weather haven't stared to change just yet where I live quite yet, but things are just about the opposite in my place.

Already I've began scenting up the aroma of fall at my house! and Ive started with my favorite essence of the fall: Fall Candles and Cinnamon scented Pinecones I found at JoAnne Fabrics!

Don't you just love Fall candles? My favorite thing to do this season is to watch Fall candle hauls on Youtube to mentally build a candle shopping list within my mind on which candles Im going to go out and buy next for my home!

NYC: BIRTHDAY EDITION DIARY (Part Waldorf)


This particular birthday was a super special birthday. Not just because I was gifted a surprise trip to the historical Metropolitan Museum of Art from my hubby, but because I was able to spend it with my two favorite people in the whole wide world. My boy, My hubby and my camera! so that makes 3 favorites right? LOL 

My family and I flew out to New York on the night just before my birthday. The flight was a breeze, a bit terrifying (considering the massive amounts of turbulence) yet a breeze considering it was only my first 1 hour flight! 1 hour? really???? this is a joke right?
When we landed in NY it was nothing short of tempting, upbeat, inspiring usual New York. The scent, the vibrancy, the air. Everything about New York continues to inspires me on tremendous levels.

NYC: BIRTHDAY EDITION DIARY (Part Met Gala)




When we awoke the next morning the morning of my birthday 8•24 did I also mention it was also Kobe Bryant’s birthday? so I had a field day watching all the people stroll by in their kobe jerseys. 

We hailed a cab on 43rd street to the Met Gala which by the way was the most peaceful taxi cab ride that I have EVER rode in New York. (lets just say I have not had very many peaceful cab rides in my life time.) the ride was maybe about 20 to 25 minutes and the car ride put both my boys to sleep so I used this time to be inspired and take it all in. The storefronts alone are always the most beautiful aspects of New York. I always find myself so fan girling over the Kate Spade storefronts.
