Weekend Update (+ a NYFW giveaway)

I am SO excited for today’s post.

I have a few links to share, an update on the survey you took last week and one killer giveaway to announce (hint: FASHION WEEK).  Since time is of the essence, I’ll get right to it.


Hooray for the holiday weekend! I don’t know about you, but mine’s all about disconnecting from the digital world.

Did you ever go to summer camp? Yeah, like sleep-away camp – that’s what I’m doing. No work, no cell service and no laptops. There is only dining halls, camp fires and flip-cup slip-n-slide relay races. You best believe I’ll be reporting back on Tuesday with a trophy of sorts.


Wow, guys. You rock — seriously. Reading through your survey comments and thoughts brought me to near-tears (in a good way) over the past week and I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to share them. I’ve closed the link so that I can start filtering through responses, and yes, I will share the results with you in a few weeks. In the meantime…


Part of the reason I’m looking forward to a nature-bound weekend is because Fashion Week is the most insane period of the entire year. Every year. And it’s next week. Like, it’s bat-shit (which you know if you read my recaps) — but in a way that’s equally as fun as it is stressful.

I’m always looking for ways to bring the experience closer to you guys, which is why I’m verrrry excited to tell you that I am giving away TWO fashion show invitations (to major designers) today. Scroll for details:


SK-II, the official skincare sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, kindly gifted me a couple of extra tickets to big-name designer shows at Lincoln Center  – and two of you will get to attend them with me! More details will be provided to each winner, but one show is on Saturday afternoon; the other on Tuesday morning. You’ll also win a VIP skincare package from SK-II, valued at more than $100.

Here’s details on how to enter:

A bit of fine print: The winner MUST live in or plan to be in NYC on the date of the show. All other costs (hotel, travel, etc) are not included. To my non-New York readers, I’m sorry. But know that I’m actively working to figure out a fun future giveaway for you, too!

Exciting stuff. Good luck! And with that, I bid you adieu for the holiday weekend – hope yours is a safe, sunny and happy one.

Fashion Week Recap, Day 3: 20ish Hours

Much of Day Three was consumed by a video I filmed for Glam Media, so for today’s recap, I’m going to give you an outtakes version to let you in on what exactly it takes to film a two-minute video.

After we get past the first few hours of the day, that is…


All right, where did we leave off?

Ah, yes. SamRo had just told Jess & I she liked our… Jewelry. For whatever reason, that was IT in life for us, so we rode that high (figuratively speaking) downtown to the Lower East Side, where we danced and sipped on vodka sodas until, well, read on….
