I mean business

Hello loves and HAPPY MONDAY! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are feeling ready and energized to conquer this new week! How are those new year's resolutions coming along?

On my end this year has already exceeded my expectations as I was invited to walk the red carpet at a movie premiere this past week! Never in a million years I could have imagined that one day I would have walked a red carpet. I am very thankful for all the amazing opportunities I get but let me tell you a secret: it's all about hard work.
I always get so many dms from people asking me how I afford those designer bags or how I managed to get a big Instagram following and my answer is always the same: HARD WORK!

For some reason I feel like people don't usually like that answer. Believe me, I would have loved to give you the recipe for instant success, but unfortunately there is no such thing! To be a #BossBabe you have to be relentless and passionate! Reading books like "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fck" by Mark Manson (HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!) and wearing power suits, Loubs and Céline sunglasses makes me feel invincible.

I have to adhere to a strict business dress code everyday at work and this Ameliora suit is the most comfortable yet flattering suit I have ever owned! The company is run by boss babes, they manufacture in NYC and import all of their fabrics from Italy. I cannot get over how luxurious the red silk lining of this jacket is. A true statement suit and a perfect match to my Louboutins!

Pumpkin Spice

I'm a summer baby and always will be so I get extremely sad whenever Labor Day hits. I'm never ready to say goodbye to the long and sunny summer days and to all the cute summer outfits (am I the only one obsessed with white lace on beautifully tan skin?). This year however the transition seems to be very soft as everyone is still sporting short sleeves and no jacket in October. Add to that the fact that the whole city is decorated for fall with cute little pumpkins, orange and red flowers and that the fall lattes are now available at Starbucks (in addition to the PSL do yourself a favor and try the maple pecan latte too!) and you might even be able to call me a happy camper.

Summer Riot

If you're ever in need of a quick city escapade with a spectacular ending I would suggest Coney Island for many reasons. Supercool graffiti walls where you can snap amazing pics *wink*, tons of good food, rides, games and cheerful people everywhere and last but not least the glorious fireworks they have every Friday night. We had an absolutely lovely time there yesterday and I have to say I am literally obsessed with this off the shoulders, wide leg midi jumpsuit from Lulus I wore! It's something totally new for me but decided to give it a try and I'm so happy I did :) it's flattering, super comfy and so chic with all the ruffles and bow. All the summer vibes.

I don't think I will ever get tired of wearing pink

I love how effortlessly and harmonically extremes coexists in the city. Skyscrapers are built next to historical monuments and low rise buildings making the contrast between them striking and fascinating. One minute you can be in the busy streets of Times Square bustling with tourists and street artists and the other you find yourself in the peace and quiet of Bryant Park surrounded by flowers and families spending quality time together. Either you love it or you hate it, there is no in between. And one thing is sure, just like wearing pink, I will never get tired of New York City.

Lunch with Rachel Zoe

It's not very often that you can attend a lunch with a celebrity and it's even less common to be able to get life and career advice directly from them. Leave it to Business Chicks to make your dreams come true! This very pink and girly Australian company strives to bring like-minded souls together – to give them a chance to swap ideas, share stories, and spark inspiration.

I feel so proud and lucky to have had the chance to participate in their American launch and have met their team as well as their outstanding members!

Without further due let me take you with me inside this fabulous and inspiring event!

My look for the event:

Waiting for the dining room doors to open the guests start socializing over espresso martinis and networking.

The location was breathtaking and every detail at the Grand Hyatt Grand Central in NYC is simply stunning!

Each guest received a bouquet with a little note that read "Because we think you are a blooming beauty! - Business Chicks"

Rachel Zoe isn't just a celebrity stylist. She is the author of two books, a jewelry and clothing designer, reality show star and an entrepreneur in her own right.

The dining room doors finally open and we discovered a ballroom filled with beautifully set tables.

The gorgeous set up for the interview.

So many goodies on the table!

And in the goodies bag of course!

Who run the world? GIRLS!

Lunch is served! And it was delicious!

And after the dessert, the best part of the event, Rachel Zoe's arrival!

She was wearing a tuxedo and a blouse from her own line.

During the interview she shared with us her fears of taking the leap at 23 and going freelance, some of her hilarious styling mistake that she thought were going to cost her her career but just made her stronger and her endless motivation to achieve everything she wants in life.

It was an absolutely amazing experience that left me wanting for more!

Because sharing is caring.
