It’s official… James and I are homeowners! And while we can’t wait to paint and decorate, we’re perfectly content to announce that the only piece of furniture we own in our new house is this King size Nectar bedand grey Headboard (which is currently on sale!). And it’s such a relief to be in such an open, quiet space and to zen-out in this incredibly comfortable mattress. And for once in our adult life we’re going to take our time to furnish and paint. The only non-compromise. Good sleep.
If you’re bed shopping, save this post! Nectar makes high quality and incredibly affordable mattresses ranging from $399 – $999 (well below their competitors), and currently includes pillows, sheets, and a mattress protector with every mattress purchase!

The most anticipated show from Darren Star, Emily in Paris features our Pretty Connected straps on the show! As many of you know our signature multi-use strap which became popular during the pandemic as the original multi-use face mask chain has been in existence for years! And pre-Covid it was a popular as a bag strap and necklace. I made a custom chain for the show last year, when their costume designer, Patricia Field (who also carries the straps on patriciafield.com), was headed to Paris to film.
Almost a year later, the show is in the top 10 for Netflix! Catch The strap being worn by actress, Ashley Park, who plays Mindy Chen, Emily’s bestfriend. She’s rocking our Pretty Connected chain ($36) as a necklace in Episode 7, 5min in while at dinner with Emily and Camille.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4, – 11:00 am pst/2 pm est – INFLUENCERS UNPLUGGED: CREATING HOLISTIC BRAND RELATIONSHIPS Panel
While influencer marketing has catapulted many companies into financial darlings with private equity investors and to avid social media fandom, working with influencers is more of an art than science. Yes, data matters – audience fit, engagement, content fit are all very important metrics. But more so, the relationship that you develop with social media influencers who become your brand ambassadors and spokespeople matters even more. How do you cultivate long lasting relationships? Hear directly from influencers how they have nurtured relationships with favorite companies and what are the key tactics you can use to connect in a more holistic way with content creators.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of Pink Pony, Ralph Lauren Fragrances continues this important initiative and commitment to the fight against cancer, with an exclusive scent, ROMANCE Pink Pony Edition. Throughout the month of October, Ralph Lauren Fragrances will donate 100% of the profits to the Pink Pony Fund.
As part of the launch I got to attend an exclusive floral arrangement class with Lewis Miller, who is partnering with the brand for an upcoming Flower Flashes, which will be inspired by the fragrance and will pop up throughout NYC during October.
The first Pink Pony “Flower Flash” will pop-up on October 13 in front of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Ralph Lauren Center (RLC). Since its founding in 2003, RLC has cared for thousands of patients making it a beacon for accessible, compassionate cancer care for residents of Harlem and beyond. RLC provides high-quality care in a warm, welcoming, and culturally sensitive environment.
In response to Wendy’s unisex comment, she’s not wrong when it comes to the chains paired with our exceptional female-founded partners listed above. They do sku more feminine. However, our mask chains alone offer tons of more unisex options. Our new Ryan ($30) gunmetal chain launching on Friday, the Dylan plastic chain ($22) in light blue, royal blue and black, as well as the Charlie Chain ($24) in silver (black and gold coming soon!), have been huge sellers for the boys. Although we try not to gender stereotype over here since we’re working hard to have an option for everyone, no matter how you identify. We’re all about personal style!
BIG NEWS! We’re teaming up with the award-winning virtual beauty app YouCam Makeup, as part of their female founder series to bring my signature beauty look to life, virtually!
You can now try on my beauty look with the click of a button! YouCam’s in-app virtual try-on brings my fall beauty look to life through hyper-realistic augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) try-on, inviting fans to experience content in an entirely new way.
The unique partnership my signature two-toned makeup style complete with midnight blue liner and ombre lips, and a special edition photo frame highlighting Pretty Connected’s best-selling mask and multi-purpose chain strap accessories. The interactive try-ons allow fans to experience the trendsetting fall beauty style and chain-link photo frame with a tap of their smart device. This true-to-life digital try-on is powered by YouCam’s advanced AR and AI technologies.
“We are excited to partner with Pretty Connected to spotlight female founder and entrepreneur, Lara Eurdolian, inviting beauty fans to dive into a unique interactive try-on experience through their phones,” shares Perfect Corp. founder and CEO, Alice Chang. “It’s an honor to spotlight female visionaries like Lara, to bring her inspiring story to life through an advanced virtual try experience that connects with fans in a completely new way.”
“I’ve been a longtime fan of YouCam and spent many nights trying on different makeup looks, and changing my hair color with their app. I joined their community more than 5 years ago, to be profiled and collaborate on my signature look was a true honor,” says Lara Eurdolian of Pretty Connected.
I’ve previously partnered with YouCam for my beauty non-profit, Share Your Beauty where for National Lipstick Day we partnered with editors/influnencers to do a drive where they could donate their unused lipsticks to a women’s shelter in the tri-state area. It’s so amazing to be reconnected with my favorite VR makeup app to be spotlighted in their female founders series which debuted with one of my beauty hero’s, Sarah Potempa of the Beachwaver.
Like many, the dream of having my wedding be in the New York Times, felt just like that, a dream. And today, it happened for me. Well sort of. Instead of covering the soon to be ‘best day of my life’, it’s about the subject that keeps me up at night. Figuring out what to do and how to celebrate this amazing 14 year relationship I’ve been in and commemorate our love. In over a decade we’ve accumulated a lot of friends. Whether or not we’re now just Facebook friend or acquaintances, many of these people are a part of our love story, and as someone who is always of the ‘more the merrier’ mindset, I want every special human, that’s ever touched my/our lives to be a part of my big day.
