February Favorites

Hello everyone! Long time no see. Life has been crazy these past few months, a lot of things changed in my life and it took me some time to adjust and get back to a normal schedule. I hope everyone is off to a great start for 2017! As usual time flies by and, let's be real, shopping is my favorite hobby so I do have many new items that quickly became my faves. So happy to finally be sharing these with you today.

FASHION

February was the month of romance and love which put me in a pink state of mind. Everytime I went shopping I came back home with pink items, every morning getting dressed I would reach for pink clothing, my nail colors, my perfume, I was obsessed I'm telling you guys. So naturally I've worn this beautiful lace top way too many times but I couldn't care less because I love it and it looks amazing on! This has to be a new all time favorite piece of mine.

BEAUTY

I had been wanting to up my skincare game for so long and the new year seemed like the perfect occasion to do so. I invested in a few key products that were recommended to me by some friends that swear they couldn't live without them. Now my morning routine is my favorite part of the day because of how amazing these creams smell but most importantly how well they work! My skin has been so glowy, nourished and hydrated, it's just incredible. I know I'll be raving about these products for a very long time, and even if they are quite expensive, they're totally worth the investment!

MAKEUP

I am such a lipstick junkie I cannot go a single day without wearing some color on my lips. I also love to change shades super often as well as finishes. I have been wearing mattes for the most part and these MAC lippies were my faves.

ACCESSORIES

I was not joking when I said I lived a very pink month. my Roses by Chloe perfume, my pink and gold Dior split sunglasses and my new Miu Miu mini wallet were my most used accessories this month. Also can we talk about that pink chocolate tablet from Laduree? It's rose flavored white chocolate. Best Valentine's Day chocolate ever. Seriously.

NEWIN

It's a bag. It's pastel pink (no surprise here). And I'm seriously IN LOVE! I found this beauty in Paris and believe it or not it was ON SALE! I have been saving up to buy this bag in this color for full price and when I saw it on sale I snagged it as fast as humanely possible. The smooth leather and structured shape makes it elegant and chic but the shiny rockstuds add a bit of edginess to it. It's just absolutely perfect in my opinion and I'm so happy to welcome it in my handbag family!

RANDOM

Last but not least my favorite new random addition to my room this month was the beautiful Rong Rong Devoe calendar. Each month has a beautiful original fashion illustration designed by Rong Rong herself and I find that it just adds so much glam to my office area!

Handbag collection

Today is #NationalHandbagDay and what better to to celebrate this fun day than to bring all of my babies out for a family picture?? :D I have loved and cherished every single one of them from the moment I bought them and have used all of them so much! I am ashamed to admit that there are still a ton of bags on my wishlist but I am so very grateful for everything I have! Not that I haven't worked my ass off to be able to afford every single one, because I really have.

So to us, handbags lovers out there, may our collections keep on growing! :D

(Of course I realized only after taking these that my Drew and a Chanel bag were missing but all of the others are here i promise!)

October favorites

Oh, how I love this time of the year! The days are still sunny even though the temperatures are much lower, which means we can wear thick sweater and comfy Ugg boots and drink tons of hot tea. I love taking Otto (my puppy) out for walks in parks, seeing all the different shades of the leaves on the trees, from green to red and coming home after a long day out and make pumpkin spice oatmeal.

BEAUTY

I might be the biggest lip balm addict in the world. My lips need to constantly be hydrated with a layer of lip balm or I feel naked. It becomes even more important to always have lip balm with me when the temperatures drop. My absolute favorite lip balms are Baby Lips, of course. I have one in every purse and every make up bag and go through them pretty quickly! I love all the different yummy scents as well, and my favorite is definitely the pink one (Pink Punch)!

MAKEUP

I have to admit that at first I didn't get why everybody loved the Naked palettes so much. I thought they were overpriced and just a hype item to own (and who would need that many shades?!). But I just got the Naked 3 palette and I am seriously understanding the hype around them. I love the rose gold tones in this make up set and how pigmented these shades are. I am thinking of getting the Naked 2 already as well as the Naked basics! So glad I changed my mind about these, a serious addiction is about to start!

FASHION

My absolute favorite piece of clothing this month is this gorgeous tweed coat from Cynthia Rowley that I found at Marshalls from only $30! It looks much more expensive than it was in my opinion and it's a timeless and very sophisticated looking piece.

NEW IN

These Gina Made It bun bows and the perfect finishing touch to all my outfits lately! I chose a pastel pink one, very ladylike and sophisticated and a red plaid one, perfect for fall! They look great at the end of braids and on top of buns or high pony tails and give a romantic French touch to every outfit!

RANDOM

I have been on the hunt for the perfect hair care regimen for years now. My hair is very thick and wavy and I always tame it with hot tools. I was so excited to receive the new Nexxus 3 step split end repairing system from Influenster! Step 1 is a silicone free shampoo with flax seed oil and concentrated protein that leaves my hair super soft and smelling amazing! The second step is the conditioner and step 3 is the heat protecting mist to apply to wet or dry hair before styling them. My hair looks super healthy, feels incredibly soft and smells wonderful! It's my first time trying this brand and I am seriously impressed!

Earth tones

Another beautiful day in the city! My friend and I decided to go to lunch and take a stroll in Washington Square park in the NYU area. Of course we ended up doing a little shopping afterward and I found a gorgeous and super glamorous black faux fur that I can't wait to show you guys. I was a bit chilly out (especially when the wind was blowing!) but the sun felt so good and warm! This time of year can be tricky because you never know if you'll end up being cold or super hot by the middle of the day! My secret is to always bring a chunky scarf with me: it's a real live-saver believe me!

I really love and cherish every single moment spent in this beautiful city. When I look around I am just so incredibly grateful for being able to live in New York!

Best of Boston

As I announced on Instagram a few days back, I just embarked on a two-weeks long road trip across North America and Canada. Our first stop was Boston, Massachusetts.
I was our first time here so we had a lot to visit and experience in just 2 days!!

We started our visit with one of Boston's must-see: the Freedom trail.

The Freedom trail, a 2.5-mile, red-lined route that takes you through 16 historical sites covers over 2 and a half centuries of America's most significant past and makes you discover the rich history of the American Revolution, as it began in Boston.

It starts on the Boston common a beautifully kept public park from where you can see imposing the State House.

It makes you discover countless magnificent statues, beautiful churches, old meeting houses and interesting museums.

Anywhere I looked, the views were breathtaking. This was the Old City Hall, on School street, where the first first public school in the United States were born, around the 1700s.

The past and the present live alongside the Trail and its visitors have the opportunity to see the city as it truly is.

All the red-brick buildings, the small streets lined with flowers and the historical monuments on the trail made us feel like we were in another century!

The waterfront on the Charles river was very picturesque with families taking walks together and dogs and their owners happily jogging.

We had dinner at a seafood restaurant by the water and headed back to the hotel, completely exhausted by all the walking and sightseeing.

We decided to start off our second day in Boston by visiting Harvard.

The campus was as perfectly idyllic as pictured in the myriad of movies and tv shows.

The imposing Tercentenary Theater.

The breathtaking Sanders Theater.

My essentials for the day: Bag: Chanel WOC - Sunglasses: Miu Miu - Ring: Yves Saint Laurent.

After spending the morning in Cambridge visiting the most famous university on the planet we decided to come back to the center of the city to take a walk through the magnificent Boston Public garden and ride on the swan boats.

We decided to take a walk on Newbury street, the main shopping street of the city, where Chanel, Tiffany and Co and Valentino stores are alongside with Zara and H&M.

We ended up to Trinity Church and Copley square were they were projecting a movie on a huge screen and tons of people were laying in the grass enjoying the good weather and the entertainment.

To end our day we decided to visit the Prudential Center Skywalk Observatory and enjoy the magnificent sunset views from there.

In the morning of our third day we attended a Sunday mass at the beautiful St. Mary - St. Catherine of Siena church.

And finally visited the Boston monument before leaving for the White Mountains National Park!

We absolutely loved Boston and would like to come back again during the winter to see how different the city looks! Have you ever been to Boston? What was your favorite place there?? Tell me everything in the comments! :)
