GovBall is one of my favorite festivals of the year. This year was my 3rd GovBall and it did not disappoint! I was lucky enough to be invited with RayBan to showcase their new RayBan Blaze frames. We got to see Lorde, Chance the Rapper & Phoenix! See below for my looks from the festival.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Match

6.14.2017

An afternoon filled with champagne on gorgeous Liberty State Park? Count me in! I had such a blast at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Match earlier this month. It was a super busy weekend, Gerry and I also had 3-day passes to GovBall and a picnic with his family, but we couldn't resist stopping by for a few hours of catching up with friends, day drinking and even seeing Alicia Keys in concert! To get to Liberty State Park you take a lovely ferry which has an amazing view of the city skyline and the Statue of Liberty. Once there I got to see so many of my friends, fellow bloggers even co-workers from years back. It was such a pleasure to see Pauline of Pauline Fashion Blog and Lisa of Make My Lemonade, two of my favorite French bloggers, who I haven't seen in so long! It really was the perfect afternoon with clear blue skies and a forgiving breeze. Certainly a day to remember!

A Weekend in Greenpoint with LensCrafters at Macy’s

A Weekend in Greenpoint with LensCrafters at Macy’s


I have worn glasses since I was about 8 years old. I remember as a kid I would always sit in the front row so I could see the board, and one day the teacher assigned us seats and I was placed in the back of the classroom. My grades started to slip and my parents took me to the LensCrafters near our house. I will never forget the moment I put on my first pair of glasses. I could see everything! Ever since then I actually look forward to my eye appointment every year (minus the puff of air) because I love picking out new glasses! When LensCrafters reached out to me about their new location opening inside Macy’s at Roosevelt Field, I was excited to get my eyes checked and choose some fun new frames. The eye appointment was quick and seamless, and then they let me loose among the gorgeous glasses. I tried on some amazing pairs—from Tiffany & Co. to Prada, and finally landed on two favorite pairs. One pair from Ray-Ban caught my eye because they were so unique with a double gold nose bridge and delicate gold arms. I also fell for a classic pair from Dolce & Gabbana with an understated tortoise finish. In the end they let me pick both (yay!) to show you guys the versatility of all the glasses available at LensCrafters at Macy’s. The Ray-Bans are a very fashion-girl frame that definitely stands out. The pair from Dolce & Gabbana are more of an everyday, classic look.

This Saturday 5/20 from 2-5pm the LensCrafters in Macy's at Roosevelt Field is having an awesome event! Stop by for drinks, music & gifts plus can pick up your own amazing pair of frames for 40% off, Saturday only!





In honor of the opening, I decided to take you on a little weekend adventure in Greenpoint to share my favorite spots and how I wear my new glasses! Let’s start at my favorite Café, Maman right off Franklin Ave. I’m wearing the Dolce & Gabbana glasses with my glasses skirt (couldn’t help it!) and a simple black top & black heeled sandals. I like to grab an iced chai latte & a croissant here and enjoy the adorable décor. For my second look with the stand-out Ray Bans, I kept the outfit simple and chic with a black off-the-shoulder bodysuit paired with navy silk culottes and light pink sandals. For an incredible view of the city, Transmitter Park is the perfect place. You get a great open shot of the skyline and the Manhattan Bridge. Then, leisurely stroll back to Greenpoint Ave for a slice of famous Paulie G’s pizza! 

5 Days in Macao

5.11.2017

Going to Macao was my first experience traveling to Asia and it was truly an unforgettable trip. From the incredible food to the architecture and culture, I was blown away! The Macao tourism board for the USA invited Noelle and I (along with 2 other awesome bloggers Keiko Lynn and Mustafa Kacar) to explore Macao for 5 days. I'm sharing some of my favorite highlights from the trip below!
Macao was governed by the Portuguese until 1999 and that interesting cultural fusion is omnipresent through the (petite) country. You'll see a European church just next to a Chinese temple! The Facade of Saint Paul's church is a beautiful representation of that Portuguese heritage. 
An adorable tea shop! We tried a few blends of jasmine and black tea. 
Well wishing at the A-Ma Temple. 


The extravagantly beautiful staircase at our hotel, the JW Marriott. 
A quick lemonade break at Single Origin coffee, a very Brooklyn-esque coffee shop in town.
The view from our hotel room!!!
Charming and colorful European style streets of St. Lazarus square. 
The lazy river at our hotel complex, Galaxy Macau. 
One of my favorite treats? The egg custard tarts from Lord Stowe's!
Noodle pulling workshop at MGM Macau! 
The bustling downtown at rush hour! 
An incredible art installation made of 100% real flowers at the Wynn Palace.

Special thanks to the Macao Tourism Board for taking us to an incredible new country! I can't wait to go back to Asia and explore!
