Ricotta Berry Toast

 What are your 4th of July plans? I’m taking it easy today. During holidays like the 4th in NYC people make a mass exodus out of the city to the beach or the country and the usual hectic pace slows all the way down. It’s quiet, there aren’t as many people around and you can get reservations just about anywhere! It’s awesome! So today I’ll be taking advantage of the city being deserted I think I’ll have brunch, go for a walk in Central Park then spend some time with my nieces and nephews. Lazy days with no set agenda …

This is How to Make Your TV Look Like a Work of Art

The Bird of Paradise is equally as stylish but a lot easier to care for which gives it the edge. This plant comes in a variety of sizes and is such …

Bright Kicks


When it comes to both interiors and fashion, I live by the idea that a pop of color can elevate a basic look and make it instantly more fabulous. My weekend looks are super casual and sometimes a bit edgy. I live in ripped jeans and sneakers! Here I paired this favorite combo with a gray hoodie, a leather moto jacket and red Adidas Flux sneakers which make the whole look brighter!

I got these sneakers a few months back and made a life changing discovery in the process… I can fit boy’s shoes! The reason this is …

Inside Mindy Kaling’s Stylish Moroccan-Inspired NYC Apartment

There aren’t enough funny women in the spotlight but thank goodness for Mindy Kaling! Her quirky, candid, self-deprecating humor is totally relatable and serves to remind us that we’re all normal! She’s definitely girl-crush worthy but equally crush-worthy is her newly decorated NYC apartment!

Mindy collaborated with One Kings Lane to design the space which serves as her second home. With Mindy busy working on projects in LA, and her designer in New York, the collaboration happened remotely with lots of calls and emails over several months. The process went surprisingly smooth since Mindy, having grown up with an architect …
