Casual in Central Park


I never used to be a big sneaker person. Usually you'll find me in flats, ankle boots or high heels but recently I've been letting comfort win and embracing the casual chic sneaker look! I partnered with DSW to create 5 trendy athleisure outfits with classics sneaker brands like Reebok, Vans, Converse & Adidas. Wearing them brought me back to my high school days! Since incorporating fitness more and more into my life I love that these looks can be work après-gym but are also stylish for running errands or grabbing brunch on the weekend. Special thanks to DSW for sponsoring this post! Be sure to check out their site for the latest trends in footwear.

Hawaii Travel Photos


Hawaii is incredible. I hadn't been back since I was a flower girl in my uncle's wedding back in 1995 so I was so excited when Aveda invited me to Oahu for Wanderlust. The yoga and music festival was an amazing experience and, despite the super long flight (12h) it was worth the trip in every way. Noelle and I made the long voyage and spent 5 days soaking up the sun, drinking piña coladas and trying out new things like aerial yoga & stand up paddle board yoga. I'm sharing some of my favorite photos from our Hawaiian adventure.

For the Love of Provence with Le Petit Marseillais™


I have loved France for as long as I can remember. It started with Madeline, the tenacious redhead and brainchild of Ludwig Bemelmans who lived in ‘an old house in Paris that was covered with vines.’ I started French class in high school and spent all my free time hanging around the French classroom listening to audiotapes and looking through photos of French landscapes. When I was fifteen I signed up for the Sister Cities program and was paired with a family in Caen, in France’s rainy Normandy region. I still remember the tiny shower with a handheld hose (a foreign concept to me) and a yellow bottle of Le Petit Marseillais™ in Vanilla Milk. That smell always brings me back! Later in college I was a French major and made it my mission to help make all the French exchange students feel welcome.  I became close friends with a business student named Laure from Marseille. She invited me to her family home in St. Victoret, a small town in the Provence Region in the South of France. I will never forget those lovely days drinking fresh orange juice in the morning, 2 hour lunches of crevettes, pasta, ham and ripe tomatoes from the garden and the smell of fresh lavender growing in the yard. Laure’s family, of course used Le Petit Marseillais™ in their showers – it’s the #1 body wash in France. It’s! I would always bring it back in my checked suitcases making my bags overweight, but I just loved the fragrances. The orange blossom body wash remindsme of the French countryside with a delicate formula that never left my skin feeling dry. And now I’m so excited to see the  original product line from France in the US! Available nationwide, you can visit to find a retailer near you and use #SoFrenchAndSoClean to share your favorite body wash scent!
