Mayakoba Travel Diary

At the end of last year I was feeling major burnout so on a whim I jetted off to Mexico for a quick solo vacay. Mexico has by default become my go-to destination for an impromptu getaway because I can always find a cheap last-minute flight and within a matter of hours be transported to Mexico’s Caribbean coast with its gorgeous weather, sunshine, palm trees, blue skies and crystal clear water. I booked a stay at the Andaz Mayakoba which was brand spanking new…they had only been open for a week when I arrived. The downside to this was that …

Morning Routine for Maximum Productivity_4

Five Morning Rituals to Boost Productivity & Conquer Your Day

Don’t you love that feeling you get on days when you’re super productive and check everything off your to do list? I do too but sometimes I struggle with procrastination. In the past, I’ve had a hard time focusing and would end up putting off important tasks and using my time inefficiently. This wasted time and lack of productivity would result in frustration and anxiety at the end of the day as I looked back and realize how little I actually accomplished. At the top of the New Year I made a commitment to solve this problem and one trick 

Nasty AF _ 5

Girl Power

I recently posted a photo of myself wearing this “Nasty AF” sweatshirt on Instagram and received a ton of comments from followers saying how much they loved it and asking where they could buy one. The shirt defines what Nasty AF means and reads:

adjective: A confident person who strikes fear in the heart of haters by articulating rational arguments and/or taking action to promote equality, diversity and love.

It’s essentially a feminist statement promoting the values of equality, inclusivity and basic human kindness. I purchased this right off of an ad from my Facebook feed! Sadly, this exact shirt …

How to do a Digital Detox

Happy New Year!! You may have noticed that I’ve been pretty quiet here on the blog and on social media over the holiday season. Without really planning to, I ended up logging offline for the past couple of weeks and taking some much needed time to reconnect with the real world and it felt amazing! It started on Christmas day – I really wanted to post something but I was hosting brunch for my family that morning and was a bit ill prepared so the second I woke up I started cleaning and cooking. All while I was prepping I …

DIY Patch Denim Jacket

A major 90s trend that is totally making a comeback is embroidered patches and pins on everything! I’ve been seeing this everywhere and I’m especially loving this look on denim. I recently attended an event for AG Jeans & Harper’s Bazaar where I was able to pick out one of their fab denim jacket plus a ton of patches and pins and there were staff on-site to iron or sew on all of the patches for us. I chose this edgy denim jacket with a raw hem and decided to bring all of my pins and patches home so that …

Fall Ready

We’ve been having crazy mild weather here in New York so luckily I haven’t had to bundle up too much which has been fantastic! (Although I’m sure the cold is on it’s way soon!) I snapped these photos in my neighborhood on a beautiful and sunny fall day. I was rocking a versatile duster trench paired with dark denim, a classic black and white striped turtleneck and a pair of suede over-the-knee boots. This is one of my favorite looks…preppy, polished and perfect for fall. Shop the look below! And bonus – since it’s Cyber Monday I’ve also …
