I had the pleasure of going to The Club by DM for a wash and blow dry. My good friend Scarlett organized the whole event and I met some wonderful ladies who blog! I was greeted right away and had a mega luxurious wash. Is there anything more delicious than having your hair washed and styled for you? I think it’s such a treat. The DM team used Cloud 9 to wash and style my hair and it looked (and smelled!!) amazing! Here are the results…
Thank you so much The Club by DM for such a relaxing (and wonderful) experience! Be sure to stop by and give them a try- three minute walk from the A or C train 😉

Funny enough while I was on my way to the spa, I found a page in my “Hello NY” book about Korean Spas.
Moving to New York City is a giant adventure, every day presents you with information you never ever knew about. Until I moved to the city, I had never heard of a Korean Spa. It’s one of the most magical experiences I have ever had in my life. If you’re like me, the idea of being completely completely nude- yes even your bikini bottoms- is terrifying. Wearing an oversized uniform with hundreds of other families and people sounds awful too. Except it’s not… View Full Post
I know it sounds incredibly biased but I really really have the best mom in the world. My mother is the sweetest, most generous, and all around best person in my life. This year for her birthday (a little early) I was able to help be a part of a surprise party her best friend Tara threw her! I snuck into town on December 13th.. View Full Post
It’s the holiday season! The month of December is essentially my occasion Super Bowl. As many of you already know I am engaged, and my fiancé Brendan is Jewish. That means we celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah. On top of that December 20th is my dad’s birthday, and my mom’s birthday is the very next day on the 21st. Brendan’s birthday is the 28th!!! And of course New Year’s. SO with all that madness (and this great little holiday outfit)- I give you my top tips for the holiday season! View Full Post
About six months ago I started moving towards making plans to purchase my very own Catherine D’lish marabou gown. Cathrine D’lish is an extremely talented burlesque actress but also is a theatrical designer. Catherine also happens to be a costumer for the exquisite Dita Von Teese. According to wiki- Catherine was one of the 60 people that attended the wedding of Dita to Marilyn Manson. She creates some of the most incredible dressing gowns, nightgowns, costumes, and even mink bunny slippers. Who has ever heard of mink bunny slippers!? What a genius. When I first heard about her incredible marabou dressing gowns. I played with the idea of buying one but ultimately didn’t because I couldn’t “find a reason”. But true to my nature after a while of thinking about it, and seeing those hysterical memes– I ordered it. After ordering it, after about a month, every-time I got a notification that we received a package, I would sprint to see if the robe had finally come.
Of course I was a little overly eager and it took a few months to get to me seeing as though it was made to my measurements (you would think that of all people I would remember that). I really believe that if you want only for special occasions to buy something you really want or to wear something you love- you will watch it sit in your closet until the end of time. Fashion is meant to be fun. It’s meant to be worn. So while I’m all about protecting things that I find magical, I still wear them. It seems crazy to buy a feathered robe, but I really loved it! That’s enough reason to have one and run around making french toast in the morning with it on. Life is a special occasion.
If you love a piece of clothing- or in my case a piece of lingerie. Think of ways outside it’s traditional use that you could wear it. For example, I love wearing my marabou robe to wear as a swimsuit cover. It’s an incredibly playful way to wear it. I bought it in this double pink because pink is an easy color to dress up or down.
So while I might not own a marble house or be Dita or another famous lady, I can still feel pretty fucking glamorous out on the patio reading the paper.
