What a night, as many of you know Cynthia Nixon is running for NY Governor and she needs our help! The Sex and the City star co-hosted an event with Sex and the City award winning costume designer aka our favorite person, Patricia Field. This week kicks off the 20th anniversary of the show so to see the two reunited with a Carrie necklace in hand (and ahem, PATRICIA FIELD IS WEARING MY BOSS RINGS!!! Actually two of them stacked because shes a major boss). Fun fact, Patricia Field created the original Carrie necklace and it’s available on her website and yes, you can get it personalized to your name.

Innisfree Opens in Union Square

Renowned Korean beauty brand, Innisfree, just opened their first U.S store recently in Union Square and it is beautiful (they also have a US site)! Known for their innovative formulas and responsible green practices, Innisfree skin care products are formulated with an average of 80% naturally derived ingredients responsibly sourced from the Korean island of Jeju. They are under the Amore Pacific umbrella (think Estee Lauder or L’Oreal of Asia), so you know this is one of those K-Beauty brands to have on your radar — especially since the price point is so affordable!!!!! I’m talking beauty products from lips to eyes for under $12, and skincare under $30 reasonable. It’s also organized by skin type, with beauty products down the middle and a cushion compact wall to die for. Cases are sold separately but then you can keep using them and just buying the refills to the product.

This is what a $1500 Rossano Ferretti haircut looks like

Rossano Ferretti haircutTrue story. In the middle of getting a cut and color appointment, when I received an email that one of the most celebrated hairdressers in the world, Rossano Ferretti was coming to NYC for the move of his Rossano Ferretti Hairspa and to launch his new Rossano Ferretti Parma collection of luxury haircare products. Thank God we did the color first because you better believe I canceled the hair cut on the spot. At $1500 a cut, there is a waitlist for Rossano Ferretti, so an invitation to meet and have my hair cut but the master and experience his infamous “method” cut was not to be missed or rushed. I cleared my day. I will open by saying, he’s a man of education and created what he calls his bible, sharing the knowledge of his method haircut with his staff, so should you visit the salon you’re looking at a more modest price of $155 – $250 for a cut with one of his stylists.


Located on the 19th floor in the Fuller Building at 41 East 57th Street (at Madison Avenue), I was greeted with so much warmth by the staff (I love Italians!), and by Ferretti, who toured me around the salon and pointed to the wall and introduced me to his mother. He told me he doesn’t do photos of his press or celebrity clients (which ahem include Kate Middleton, Jennifer Lawrence, Reese Witherspoon and Dakota Johnson to name a few, but this photo of his mom hangs in every one of his salons. I was instantly charmed. Between his 18 hairspas (with four more opening soon!) he’s rarely available to cut himself, so this was a true honor.

Now I will preface the man is a visionary. He was the first to shy away from ground level storefront salons and do an apartment style hairspas a few levels up. He developed his hair revolutionary “ The Method” cut, which is all about reading the natural fall of the hair and creating the perfect bespoke haircut for each person. It’s designed to enhance the individual beauty of every client, customizing the haircut according to the hair type and characteristics of each person.  He told me he could never go into the world if he didn’t have something new to offer.

Renaissance Times Square Staycation (plus win a stay!)

renaissance-timeout-staycationI’m so excited! As some of you may remember, Charlie and I partnered with the Renaissance Hotel in Times Square a few weeks ago for an epic staycation and our campaign video is now done. The video really says it all, but to be in gorgeous, spacious room, at a pet friendly hotel where you have the pulse of the city at your finger tips and then as soon as you close the door it is so quiet and tranquil was magic. And the unexpected lambs and details in the hotel and on the balcony was such a cute touch! (Also scroll to the bottom for your chance to win a 2 night stay and exclusive discounts!).


As you can see from the video we had an absolute blast during our stay. The theme was #UnexpectedNYC and they delivered! Owned by the Marriott, we had a beautiful, newly renovated terrace room on the 4th floor with a balcony that overlooked Times Sq. I mean, look at this view from my balcony! All of Times Sq is behind me!

NYX Cosmetics Opens Store in Brooklyn

NYX Cosmetics store opening with Noelle Downing and Lara Eurdolian

While I’m aching for NYX Cosmetics to open a store in NYC, the state of New York should rejoice that we’re one step closer with the brand’s first store in this state landing in Brooklyn.


On Wednesday night, myself an a few blogger friends ventured out deep into BK for a sneak peek at the store. Now when I say deep, I’m talking the most southern point (like way farther then Ikea) to a place called the Kings Plaza Mall for a tour and to shop the store before it’s grand opening today!

Credo Beauty Opens in NYC


I’m way overdue for a trip to San Francisco and one of the beauty stores on my radar to visit while there was Credo. So when an invite came for the opening to their store in NYC, I was so excited! With just months after Space.NK moved to Nolita, the new Credo store is located on the same street, just a few blocks over at 9 Prince Street.credo-store-nyc

For anyone not familiar with Credo, it has that same smartly curated beauty boutique feel you’d get from a Space.Nk or Blue Mercury but their schtick is all natural and organic beauty brands. So you’ll see minimal to no cross over from these stores or Sephora. Spanning 900 sq feet, the Credo store offers products from 100+ brands from all over the world spanning face, hair, body and makeup. We’re talking brands like Tata Harpour, W3LL People, Ilia, Indie Lee, Juice Beauty,RMS, African Botanics, Cocovit, Evolvh, Dr. Jackson’s, Fig + Yarrow, Graydon, Herbivore, Innersense, Intelligent Nutrients, Kahina Giving Beauty, Kjaer Weis, Lurk, Marie Veronique, MV Organic Skincare, Nu Evolution, Rituel de Fille, Sans (ceuticals), Skin Owl, Strange Invisible, SW Basics, and Vapour.

Ride for a Cause with Cyc Fitness


As some of you might now, I started a Wellness Wednesday series which I’m determined to keep up with and every week (if not on the blog that at least on Instagram) to share new health initiatives I’m partaking in as part of my commitment to be healthier in 2016. I’ve done my fair share of cycling classes but admittedly never stuck to biking as a regular form of exercise until partnering with Cyc for their Calories for a Cause program. For all of January and February Cyc is donating $1 to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation on behalf of their riders for every ride done at the studio as part of the program.
