BBQ Invitations

It's that time of year: Independence day approaching, temperatures rising! Summer is in full swing in New York City and we haven't had a proper BBQ in a few months. While my husband tends to send everything electronically, I enjoy snail mail cards occasionally. Aren't these BBQ + Beer invites great? I know I'd like to open this up along side the usual Netflix and  magazines in the mailbox. Purchase and peruse other great prints at Girl in Gear Studio.

Pieces of our Weekend

What did you get into this weekend? We packed up our Pug and hopped on the LIRR to spend a few toasty afternoons on the beaches of the Hamptons.

I love the dining scene in Long Island! We sipped delicious key lime pie martinis at Rumba, then caught a little boat for delicious seafood dinner at Cowfish (come prepared to wait a few hours for a table!). I can't wait to go back for more sea air, fresh seafood and laughs with friends.

The Wolf of Wall Street


It's hard to not get excited about The Wolf of Wall Street when you've been either pouring drinks for or working and living on Wall Street for the last decade!

One Lump or Two?

Do you take sugar with your tea or coffee? I rarely do- my mother raised me on unsweetened iced tea (like they drink in New England, or so she says). I do keep the sweet stuff on hand for guests. How funny is this "One Lump or Two?" sugar bowl? It would make a great addition to the breakfast table! Find yours at The Gray Goose.

Cherry Marzipan Tea Forte

Give your skin a little extra boost from within with Tea Forte's cherry marzipan laced green tea. I love this variety iced and unsweetened for a little treat for taste buds and complexion! Purchase at Birchbox.

Julep Invisible Dry Shampoo

My sweet husband walks our Pug on weekday mornings, but the weekends are mine to allow him to sleep in before we head out for a run or do yoga. When I roll out of bed, I generally look a bit sloppy and manage to consistently bump into friends and acquaintances. Sunglasses are a good shield, but more effort is needed to mask my disheveled state!

Julep's Dry Clean Invisible Dry Shampoo is fantastic! I have very fine dark hair and typically don't do well with Dry Shampoo, but the spray is light and provides luscious volume! Sign up to be a Julep Maven for discounted items and free shipping!

By Terry Hyaluronic Eye Primer

Do you get eight hours of sleep? For myself, it's typically a pipe dream (though I'm getting a little better). I recently discovered this little miracle worker: By Terry Hyaluronic Eye Primer. The formula seamlessly masks dark circles and provides therapy to reduce creases and circles! I'm absolutely hooked. Check it out at Birchbox.

On Par Grass Bangle

During college, I doubled up on the jobs in the summers to save cash to float me through the academic year. Hands down, working the local country club as a Beer Cart Girl (official title, folks) was the most fun! Had this bangle existed years back, I would have dropped a day's worth of tips on it! From Kate Spade, you can purchase it here.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss

Red lipstick is a product  that I've never really felt confident wearing. It's a little too dramtic for day-to- day and I'm generally laid back on weekends!

With that being said, one of my girlfriends gifted me her Mirenesse Glossy Kiss lip color from her Birchbox and I decided to experiment a bit. I'll try anything twice! I dabbed a bit of the velvety stick on my lips and cheeks for a more transparent, rather than matte affect, which looks great for office to happy hour! I'm thrilled, it feels saucy and fun! Purchase at Birchbox.

Whale of a Time Earrings

How cute! Who can resist three pairs of nautical themed earrings? Why not purchase and give a pair each to two of your girlfriends? This $12 cheap thrill can be acquired at Pink Pineapple. Which pair would you keep? I'm an anchor gal myself...you know, keeping everyone well-anchored in the sea!

Live Color Fully

We're back from the Baltic! It's been a wee bit hectic catching up with home and work tasks! I hope to  carve out time to go through and post my photos on Flickr soon!

A bit of the -status quo: chaos- is derived from my office undergoing a massive real estate re-stack of cubicles. I came in this morning to a larger cube (it's the Hamptons mansion of cubicles!) with a stunning view of Midtown Manhattan (why yes of course I can see the Empire State Building, City Hall and the Chrysler Building!). Albeit spacious with a lust-worthy view, I miss girlfriends from my previous location. I could use a little reminder of cheer. How about this paperweight from Kate Spade? We should all Live Color Fully....purchase at Nordstrom.
