Dolly Sisters Pink || Wax Poetic in West Village



Today's dress is for the pink-lover!  Wax Poetic created the perfect girly-girl dress, which feels to very 1940's showgirl when paired with a fluffy petticoat.  Raquel is balanced with adorable white polka dots, made of the softest material, and has a skirt made for twirling.  I'm imagining summer days sitting at cute cafes, or simply grabbing an ice cream cone - it's a very comfortable dress!

Spring Beauty with Mario Badescu



If there is one aspect in my beauty routine that I have recently discovered the importance for, it is definitely exfoliating.  I had always heard experts talk about it, but dry skin is something that I really never had an issue with.  Recently though, I've realized that exfoliation works wonders for all skin types, and Mario Badescu has truly helped me see the light!

I currently use 2 of their scrubs, one for face and one for body: Botanical Exfoliating Scrub & Raspberry Body Scrub.  In the theme of spring, both have fresh, natural scents feature plant or fruit!  The botanical scrub contains Ivory Palm Seeds and leaves my face so smooth for makeup application.  I don't think I could live without it.  The Raspberry Body Scrub leaves my body feeling as soft as butter, and I actually love all of the MB fruit body scrubs... a plus that they look as pretty as flower petals.

Read on to discover more...


Another spring-themed product that I absolutely can't live without, is the Rose Hips Nourishing Oil.  Dry patches on my face have vanished because of it!  I actually spot-apply, only to certain areas of my face are extra dry or tend to flake.  It works wonders!

Here is a list of the essential Mario Badescu products that are also in my current skincare rotation, especially for summer:

* Enzyme Cleansing Gel
* Special Cucumber Lotion
* Rosewater Facial Spray
* Oil Free SPF 30 Moisturizer
* Cucumber Tonic Mask

1950's New York || Classic in Zoe Vine



Hello from Underground NYC!  Marilyn was right here in the Grand Central subways, during her candid shoot for Redbook.  I honestly never stop thinking about yesteryear when I'm taking the trains (which is all the time!) as the old craftsmanship is visible everywhere in underground NYC.  

My new "Georgie Dress," by Zoe Vine, has the kind of timeless 1950's appeal that made me think of the subways.  This is a dress that I could wear everyday.  I love it's crisp, polished, and simply classic design.  As I've already worn it multiple times, I added in a couple styling options below.  It is such a versatile piece!
