I’m talking about self love. That straight to the core, stare at yourself, sans makeup in the mirror, and respect yourself, kind of love. The kind of love that no one can change, and no one can give, accept for you. Self love is a challenge. It is a constant effort, but you know what? You’re worth it!
One tiny voice made me open my eyes and heart a bit wider, one lovely Sunday afternoon. It just happened to be Valentine’s Day and New York Fashion Week. It was business as usual for us. Instead of focusing on a perfect date, we end up working. Grant was still shooting each of the shows, and I was busy styling a very special outfit, to introduce you to fabulous company which I love, called Style Lend.
Hello Valentines! The holiday of hearts is just 2 weeks away, and I’ve been busy styling a few looks to inspire your fancy night out with your beau, your bestie, or both! Typically I’d sport a little red cocktail dress for a night out, but I’ve got a new look for you. Meet the little red dress’s sassier, and older sister.
Dearest snow storm Jonas. You were soft, sweet and romantic when it all started. I gradually watched you fall, piece by piece, and flake by flake until you became larger than life. You blew in, with a force so mighty, you took over all of New York City. You were cold and ugly. You sent shivers down my spine, and you left it all on the streets. You forced me into my ugly puffer coat, and boring, flat rain boots, which you know I can’t stand. I spent a full day cooped up inside my home, leaving my sequins and party dresses behind, locked in the darkness of my closet. But I’ve got something to tell you, sir Jonas. We. Are. Over.
In the middle of winter, it’s definitely easy to get caught up wearing the same baggy, cozy pjs, using your basic makeup colors over and over again, until their gone, and spritzing your usual go-to fragrances. However Valentine’s Day happens once a year, and it’s fun to spice things up a bit. There’s no better time than now to splurge on a few pretty little things whether it’s for your love, or to celebrate yourself. Why not? They make you feel special, desired and all around beautiful. You deserve it! So whether you celebrate with your love, your besties, or yourself, make sure to treat yourself like a queen. Here are a few of my favorite Valentine’s finds this season. Enjoy Beauties!
Choosing the perfect outfit for Valentine’s Day, in the middle of snowy February can be quite the challenge. If you are like me, you are completely sick of your winter wardrobe and all of the dark colors that come with it. Spring clothing is out it the stores right now, and it keeps you dreaming of the sunny weather and the beach, but unfortunately it’s completely unrealistic for the winter temps right now. Or is it? There are many ways to brighten your Valentine’s outfit and make it look transitional. When I dress up, I aim to look sophisticated, elegant and glamourous at the same time. My look always changes depending on where I’m headed for the evening.
Valentine’s Day is coming up and I’ve been searching for the perfect nail color to wear for a night out on the town. I’ll admit, I’m getting a little tired of the darker hues. They remind me too much of winter and I’m ready to brighten up my life and move on with a brilliant new manicure.
Valentine’s Day is upon us and I’m sure you’re planning your perfect date. Whether it be a solo spa day, girl date with your besties, or a romantic evening with the one you love, it’s always important to treat yourself.

New York Fashion Week is here and it seemed to bring the cold weather, sleet, and snow. This time of year, dark colors tend to dominate our wardrobes. After a few months, it leaves me longing for sunshine and brighter colors. With a quick glance through my closet, I realize that winter white and a whimsical print is the perfect solution to update to my look.
