NEW YORK CITY

Happy Tuesday!! My girlfriend, Blair, and I went to NYC for 4 days and had an amazing time! I did and saw so much, but if I had to narrow it down, to my favorite experiences, here is the rundown: Having dinner at  'Marea', a high-end Italian seafood & house-made pastas restaurant, located at Central Park South. I met with a PR company at our hotel, at the 'W off Lexington' that represents health and wellness brands and look forward to working with them in the future! I met with a Director for Coach at the 'Marlton Hotel'- this place is so quaint. It's the place where people go from the neighborhood to grab coffee & order food from the restaurant located downstairs. I had lunch with the friend at 'Tavern on the Green' in Central Park. Have you been there before? My first experience at Tavern on the Green was with my parents for my 16th birthday. Blair and I had lunch at 'The Smith' was a great lunch option and loved how they supplied sparkling water with no extra charge. As some of my friends know, I am hooked on sparking mineral water with a lime. Always so much to do in the city- the city that never sleeps! What are a few of your favorite spots in New York City?

I have been on the lookout for a solid black leather jacket for months and finally found this one from Asilio & I love it! The Asilio jacket is real leather and makes me feel like a complete bad a$@!  I also love FREE PEOPLES 'Soho' Faux Leather Moto Jacket  BLANKNYC 'Easy Rider' Faux Leather Moto Jacket  and Madewell's Ultimate Leather Motorcycle jacket as well. You can pair a leather jacket with a white summer dress with booties or wear all black with a pop of color. I got the cheetah body suit from Tillys & always find great items there that are easy on the bank. Madewell's jeans high-rise skinny jeans in black sea  are so comfortable.  Jessica Simpon's  'Meave' Platform pump is one of my staples the for fall & winter.

Do you have a pom pom on your purse or keychain!? I love my black pom that I have on my key chain. Hook the pom poms on to your purse or even use a bandana; it adds a whole new vibe to your outfit. You can use a wrap or cut an old tee in the shape of square and use that as well.

I cannot leave out these glasses from PERVERSE 'Catalina' 52mm Round Sunglasses. Big round glasses always make think of Iris Apfel who I admire so much. I can only hope to have as much swag as she has when I am her age!

Happy Holidays Ya'll
