I love you, Bill Cunningham.

New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham has been at it for years, specifically when it comes to his famed street style images. Here he examines the never-ending gladiator sandal trend, and how the fashion of this Summer differed from the years prior.

Fall beauty products I’m obsessed with.

According to this 80+ degree weather, we have not quite made it to Fall yet. However, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have a full beauty regime in place and ready to go should mother nature decided to change her mind. These 7 products will have you looking and feeling your best by the time the leaves start changing.

Renpure Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner

Renpure Solutions Rosemary Mint

Renpure Solutions Rosemary Mint Cleansing Conditioner can remedy even the most damaged Summer hair. The non-sulfate formula keeps your follicles moisturized and soft to the touch. Not to mention that killer price. You could probably go away for the weekend with the money you save on shampoo and conditioner.

Benefit Instant Brow Pencil

Of all the brow pencils I’ve ever tried, this by far gives you the most natural results. The creamy formula effortlessly blends into your brows, and the built-in brush spreads the product for an even application. The most experienced eye brow filler will be impressed by this user friendly product.
Please be warned , you will never leave your house without it on.

MAC Studio Fix Power Plus Foundation

The Summer is for the dewy completion, but the rest of the year, go matte. This two-in-one miracle covers imperfections with no added shine.

Mac Cosmetics 27.00

Sephora Collection Classic Red

s1198886-main-hero-300

Time to put the pinks and nudes away, the bold lip comes back with vengeance the first sign of cooler weather. This color of all vixens is a must for any woman wanting to make her presence know this season. Or just wear it to bed? Either way, this cream lipstick is beyond.

Essie Skirting the Issue

One of my all time favorite Essie colors. Skirting the Issue is the perfect everyday dark mauvey/red/brownish color available. If I could only choose one nail polish for the rest of my life, this would be it.

Lush Dark Angels

Use this coal black sugar scrub as a daily face wash or weekly mask. Either way, the unique formula exfoliates all the gunk and grime off you face leaving it baby soft. Coal has actually been proved to force out bacteria which may lead to acne.

Lush 31.95

Tanwise

SBS-775028

I know you may be wondering what a tanning lotion is doing on a list of Fall beauty products, but before you huff and puff, please let me explain. My greatest loss every Fall is the natural Summer-time glow from those long days of Sunshine. Tanwise’s natural hue allows you to keep the charade going, if only for a little while longer. Put some on when you start to long for those marathon beach days.

Sally Beauty Supply 9.00

Happy (almost) Fall.

Spring 2015 | Rebecca Minkoff

Ethereal princess and upper east side prepsters rejoice, Rebecca Minkoff just supplied you with a closet filled with enviable pastels. There is little surprise when it comes to the beauty of this collection, Minkoff has been sending her romantic urban creations down the runway since 2009 with nothing but praise from the critics.

This collection is no exception. The classic white shirt is no stranger to this line-up of Hampton Chic dresses and endless Summer nights on Brooklyn rooftops. Rebecca is a bred New York designer, and all these looks fit seamlessly into the city she adores.

Here are some of my favorites. Share yours in the comments.

Happy Fashion Week.

P.s. I took a week off of daily posts because I was a sickly mess who couldn’t bare to type. Happy to get back in the game this week.

Labor Day | Laurita Winery

I spent the better half of Labor Day touring the Laurita Winery in New Egypt, New Jersey. It was a steamy day, which means we hurried our ice cold sangrias under the shade and enjoyed some of the live folk music. Compared to the past two days, the winery was a much needed escape from the usual holiday weekend chaos.

I was also able to reflect back on this amazing Summer. I have accumulated so many life-long memories with some of my loveliest friends. I can’t wait to see what this Fall brings.

Enjoy these snap-shots and please share your Labor Day weekend fun with me in the comments.
