My favorite winter workout will always be and will remain running. Whether I’m in the country or the city, Manhattan or Brooklyn I can always go for a run. I keep things interesting by switching up the parks and boroughs. When the weather gets cold all I have to do is layer up in quality athletic gear from Target® C9 to keep warm, breaking a sweat helps too! What’s your favorite winter workout? Head over to my new Instagram account chicvoyage and let me know!

It’s Beginning to look a lot like Christmas is one of my favorite Christmas tunes. My roomie owns both a record player and the actual record. We listened to tunes while decorating the apartment in Christmas cheer. My decorating outfit, yes I actually have an outfit for holiday decorating and this year it was my Love+Grace lounge wear. They were perfect for decorating in the morning and then heading out for a quick bite that afternoon. Not only don’t they look like regular PJs but they don’t feel like them either. High quality cotton and beautifully designed makes them the perfect gift for yourself or the ones you love with grace.

Look 1: Queen of Hearts
Tools: Black Cream Eyeshadow, Black Liquid Liner, White Eyeliner & Red Lipstick
Look 2: Sexy Sea Siren
Tools: Break out your summer shadow palette (you can use the pinks & golds or switch to greens & blues), eye liner and mascara.
Look 3: Nefertiti

Now with pieces you already have in your closet you can have a fun and fashionable Halloween!

As we enter a new season and get closer to the end of 2014 I took a look back at what I’ve accomplished so far this year. With my app creation, move, and completing my web series, I have a lot to be proud of. But what’s next? What do I want to accomplish this year and the next? What I wanted was a bit difficult to put into words and it wasn’t very clear to me. Luckily Marc Jacobs has a site where you can create “dream capsules’ using inspirational images that tie to your goals and dreams.
After selecting images for my “dream capsule” while listening to the awesome “Daisy Dream” Pandora playlist that Marc Jacobs curated himself: http://www.pandora.com/station/play/2193106714811130318 it turns out I dream of traveling often, very often. So hopefully if I focus I can make it happen and my dream will come true. I’ll go on a fashion week world tour! The images in my “dream capsule” were much clearer than making a bucket list. If you’re curious as to what your dreams look like visit the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream “dream capsule” microsite.
And once you create and submit your dream capsule, you can enter the Marc Jacobs Dream Daisy sweepstakes for a chance to win one of the weekly prizes including Marc Jacobs fragrances, accessories, and the grand prize: a Marc Jacobs experience you thought you could only dream of!
I love the Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream fragrance; it’s such a light and dreamy scent that stays on all day, despite the NYC heat wave. I received so many compliments during fashion week it was the perfect accessory.

I love New York City, but during the summer it can be brutal. That’s why I’m loving these last days of summer with hints of Fall around the corner. I’ve already started wearing my dresses with cardigans wrapped around my waist for the cooler weather. One of the things that I’ve started to enjoy even more are going for bike rides. On a hot day you leave your apartment dolled up but arrive at your destination looking like Raggedy Ann. This was a bummer because riding a bike to and fro is the easiest way to stay active.
What to wear on a Chic City Ride:
1. Wear a helmet!
2. Comfortable (but chic) clothing
3. Flats or cute sneaks (from Target® C9 collection)
4. A messenger or cross-body bag
5. Flowers (optional but definitely make ride more enjoyable)
How are you staying chic and active during these last days of summer?

After a marathon of The Only Way Is Essex on Hulu I got a craving for fish and chips. Thank goodness for A Salt & Battery in the West Village. They have great menu of fish platters and battered well everything including Mars bars. I loved how the cashiers played along as I ordered a fish meal when we both knew the reason I was there was for the Mars bar.
