Winter Beauty Essentials

Have you guys heard about Vine? If you haven’t, you absolutely need to check it out. Think of it like Instagram but with short 6 second video clips. You can make stop motion videos or just show off little snippets of your day. Yesterday I posted a video showcasing some of my favorite beauty products and I thought I’d share them with you, too. I’ve posted about beauty essentials more than once, so I thought a quick update on a few …

Guys, I can’t believe it’s already time for Alt Summit, but it’s officially here! I am traveling this morning (currently blogging at you live from the Delta terminal at JFK) and really looking forward to meeting up with everyone in Salt Lake City later today. Which, of course, means much of my last few days have been spent planning outfits and packing. It’s no exaggeration that Alt is a true fashionista’s dream, the perfect chance to rock whatever trend-of-the-moment you’ve …

Now that the holidays are fading into distant memory, it really feels like winter around here. As in, yes, I really wish spring were going to be here soon. But I’m a realistic kind of girl and I know we’ve got at least three more months of cold chills and winter doldrums here in upstate New York. So I am doing what any reasonable girl does under the circumstances by lusting after gorgeous velvet blazers and cozy oversized scarves. It’s only …

This outfit is perfect for enjoying a few holiday cocktails, whether it be at a party, out on the town for a Tom and Jerry, or sipping bubbly on Christmas Eve with family.

Can you seriously believe that Thanksgiving is just a couple weeks away? I have no idea where 2012 has gone! But I’m not complaining because I just love this time of year.

Not surprisingly, with fall here I’m all about cozying up for the colder months. I recently picked up a few new wool blankets that have been in heavy rotation in recent weeks and a new pair of boots is next on my fall must-have list. I’m also loving everything copper! The color is warm, inviting and completely timeless. So this week, it’s all about the cozy and the copper and I’m loving every little bit.

I don’t know what it is about fall, but lately I find myself online window shopping way more than usual. I think it’s some sort of nesting instinct that comes with chillier weather. It becomes all about cooking, baking, and layering the house with cozy textiles and flickering candlelight. Recently I find that I am loving moody metallics, teak brown, and sleek earthy pieces that are simple in their easy beauty. Take this door mat from the recently launched Zara …
