Holiday Style Part II

Posted on: December 23, 2016

Still looking for something to wear for the holidays thats stylish and chic.

Continue reading and seeing how I’ve styled this holiday outfit.

This holiday season has been busy and event(FULL) to say the least. I was fortunate enough to attend a few events with Town & Country. One event that was really fun was the event with Baccarat X Town & Country. The event brought together PR executives, bloggers, associates and Baccarat fans for the opening of Baccarat’s newest pop-up shop located in the Soho/West Village area. If you haven’t shopped at Baccarat before it’s definitely worth all the money. If your still looking for some last minute gifts ideas, be sure to check them out. They have the best items for your home, jewelry, decor and so much more. The evening was amazing, spent with great friends and new friends. This was the outfit I wore to the event.

Outfit Details 

All black everything will always be my go-to outfit, why you may ask? It’s chic, elegant and not to mention very classy. A simple black outfit with the right accessories is the perfect holiday outfit that’s quick, easy and simple to put together. My pop of color of the outfit would be what I wear on my feet. But still keeping it classy, chic and stylish. This is one of my favorite outfits I’ve worn this season. This black lace tunic from Zara is the perfect top to wear for any occasion. The ruffle frill sleeves makes the outfit fun, flirty and super glam. Not to mention you’d be on trend and having heads turn wherever you go. Pair it with some black skinny pants as I’ve done here, or even a pleated skirt to dress and spice up the outfit. For shoes, wear some fun bootie heels or even these velvet flats as you see here. These velvet Marc Fisher flats are my absolute favorite this season. They are super comfortable {as if your walking on air} and the velvet detail will dress up any outfit. Velvet is a material that is not only on trend, it’s sleek and chi. Something that will be around in fashion for awhile. So go grab yourself a pair, trust me you won’t be disappointed. To me, this is the perfect outfit to wear for any holiday event. It’s very elegant, classy and super chic. You’ll definitely get the “Best Dressed” award hands down!!

My Caudalie Experience

Posted on: October 18, 2016

Spa Day anybody? I say YASSS and ABSOLUTELY to a spa day any day.

With Spa week in full swing, I thought it would be fitting to share my experience at the Caudalie boutique store and spa on Bleeker Street, NYC.  I have been a huge fan of Caudalie and their products for many years, but I have to say this is one spa that I haven’t visited until now.

Nothing makes me and my skin happier than a little TLC at the spa. I had an amazing experience overall. I visited Caudalie on Bleeker Street, back in August. A day to relax and unwind. Also a great way to prep my body and skin for my upcoming trips. A great way to let my skin and body breathe and get revitalized and rejuvenated.

Upon arriving at the Caudalie Bleeker Street boutique, I was greeted by the staff with a glass of their draining tea. One of my favorite teas that aids in detox. It’s a delicious blend of 5 100% organic* plants, these herbal infusions were exclusively created for the Vinothérapie® Tisanerie des Spas. It’s meant to accelerate the elimination of water and toxins for an immediate sensation of well-being. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Treatments:

Vinosource Anti-Oxidant Hydrating Facial

A skin-renewing treatment to deeply moisturise the skin. This treatment starts with a gentle cleansing of the skin. A modelage with fresh grapes followed by a recovery essential oil modelage soothes dryness. The application of an intensely moisturising mask, and our Vinosource products restore moisture levels for a healthy and glowing appearance.

Divine Body Treatment 

A relaxing body massage featuring our award winning Divine Oil, a combination of 4 exceptional plant oils. Your skin will be luxuriously softened, moisturized and wrapped in a delicate floral fragrance (rose, grapefruit, pink pepper, vanilla, cedar and white musk).

I had the most amazing specialist, her name is Melissa. If your ever in the NYC/West Village area be sure to ask for her she’s the best! She began her career with Caudalie at the founding Spa and store in Bordeaux, Paris , how AMAZING! She did an exceptional job at accessing my skin and what it needed during my visit. She’s also quite knowledgeable about the brand and their products. Melissa is the perfect Caudalie specialist to ask all your skincare questions and needs.

I came on a great day too, they were celebrating the release and Collaboration of their newly designed product and one of my favorites I might add, their beauty elixir. Jason Wu x Caudalie, if you haven’t tried their beauty elixir I highly suggest you should. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Be sure to pick up a bottle of your very own the limited edition collaboration Jason Wu Design beauty elixir available in stores and at a Sephora near you.

After my treatments, I felt re-energized and refreshed. I’m all about amazing skincare and using the right products that my skin needs. I’m a huge fan of the Caudalie brand and their products. Their spa experience is an added plus. The Caudalie spa and boutique was not only relaxing but the ambiance and interior design was so very zen and luxurious. Definitely a place I’d come back and visit. If you haven’t been to the Caudalie Store and Spa you should definitely check it out.
