Beach Babe

Fashion, Wanderlust

Hold up wait a minute ….. I actually found a one piece that fits me and I still can’t believe it! For the longest time I’ve been toying with the idea of purchasing a Solid & Striped one piece the Anne-Marie to be exact. Ever since that social media take over last 4th of July with Taylor Swift & squad, yes I admit it I’ve been wanting one ever since. Since I’ve purchased my new favorite bathing suit I basically live in it. By far my one of my favorite purchases of the season, not to mention I got a deal on it via a Net-A-Porter sale!

Budget babe ….

             Let me tell you about my new favorite summer dress and get this I scored it for a whomping …… $34 ! Can you believe it because honestly I can’t considering I was ready to drop $200 on a very similar look. These days practicality is my middle name because honestly its just not feasible to be blowing money like the wind. Well when I really think about it I’ve always been a good shopper, never was the kind of girl to over spend on clothing. I mean don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that Ive never over spent on clothing and or shoes; but I like to consider myself a savvy shopper with a good eye.

         So how did I come across this steal of a dress which is now my favorite dress for the the season. Well honestly I dreamt of a pink gingham dress which I’m pretty sure  was brought on by the the Audrey Reformation dress in blush and yellow gingham. Let me tell you about this dress I literally stalked it, dreamt it and tried justifying the purchase with a million different reason. I came pretty close to buying  it until the voice of reason my friend Maria told be a hard NO. I already said no to myself in my head but it was a soft no. So I searched high and low and let me tell you thank you google because I literally just typed gingham dress and BAM there it was my look for less!

While browsing I came across the most perfect pastel colored display of Mario Badescu products. Ive heard such a great things about this brand and decided it was time to give it a try. I’m always looking for new skincare products  { A. I couldn’t resist MB’s great packaging I’m a sucker for that stuff and B.  they are known for using natural ingredients another thing I’m a sucker for all things natural, at least for the most part.

 

 

Currently my daily skin care regimen consist of the below MB products, I have to say that with the short period time I’ve been using his products I can definitely see a difference.

Literally when in doubt wear black and you’ll look like you never had doubt at all.  No joke on a Saturday night my uniform is Black on Black on Black and sometimes a pop of color. Its a running joke that my friend and I have that you can always bet that one of us or all of us will be in head to toe black.

Dumbo, Brooklyn

Fashion, Soul, Wanderlust

      Dumbo, Brooklyn located between two iconic landmarks the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge. Making it one of the ultimate picturesque spots, a photographer junkies dream location. I think you all know the famous Dumbo picture I’m talking about, right ? Well if not keep reading and scrolling , you’ll see a few of my favorite snaps from the day and me too.

   Williamsburg to Dumbo please ! Via Uber it took about 25 minutes and obviously its wasn’t a traffic free ride because when is there ever not traffic. Dropped off at a random location that on google maps looked close enough to the infamous Dumbo photo spot. Since directions and following google maps isn’t my forte the idea to follow all the people with cameras seemed like the sure thing to do. It worked and everyone around had the exact same reasoning for walking that way. I mean it really is one of prettiest views and so quaint. Cobblestone streets, a view of the bridge and NYC skyline in the distance really sets the tone for a great photo opp.

 

On to the next location the Historic District I’m not sure we really made it but we came across everything we wanted. Brownstones, colorful homes, quaint streets, cobblestone streets and beautiful water views of Manhattan. Walking our way through Dumbo we came across some great looking spots for a bites and treats.  To name a few the infamous Grimaldi’s – On the corner of Old Fulton and Front Streets for bites and Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory for treats.
