Why Me? Because…

1. Jj is well Jj – between the bf & me we got that covered.

2. This song!! It’s [on of] my [many] song!! Nov, you can tell ’em why ūüėČ

P.S. so it’s originally Jessie’s on a vacation far away. ¬†JJ lead singer¬†changed it to Elin’s (her name, obvs) & we would change it to Jenny… It became my (our) song in Morocco – def far away!


Few things I’m lovin’ right now:

1) My customized Duck Sauce song

2) The Brooklyn Nets

3) The Buffet Rule.¬† And as my mom says “It’s not like we’re gonna stop spending”

This is long overdue but I kept forgetting to get the photos from Jj… I finally did last night & here are photos from the best meal we had all 10 days in Colombia!

Our proud Chef

Background: we had walked about 40 mins to this beach, Playa Blanca on Bar√ļ, from our all-inclusive hotel. ¬†We were on a rush to get back for our massages & hopefully grab a quick snack before. ¬†However, as we walked back from our secluded spot on the beach we saw all these lil huts with picnic tables (imagine Barra Vieja, Acapulco if you’ve ever been) and I knew we had to eat there. ¬†Jj was much more hesitant and not very willing to put his 1st world stomach up to this “challenge”. ¬†I prevailed (obviously) after insisting that these were always the yummiest meals & it was just like Acapulco where I always ate & never got sick.

So after checking out the fish…

and picking out our lil guy, I sat & waited for the meal while Jj documented the entire thing step by step!!

The weather gets a little colder, the days get a little shorter, the leaves start changing color, and I get another year older…

Also, present season begins!! And here’s what I want:

1) Olympus EPL3: bc after LOTS of online research & hands-on investigating at photo stores, I decided I really like the look & feel of this one.¬† Obviously, also all its functionalities – most of which I don’t know how to use yet…

2) J Brand eggplant pants (sz 26): bc I live in my J Brand jeans! They fit me just right, are so comfy & I love this eggplant color for fall.

3) TOMS by The Row (sz 8): bc they are warm & comfy & I had to throw out my last pair.

4) Rachel Comey Mars Boots (sz 8): bc they are also comfy and oh so cute/cool! Best of all, they are all-season shoes! Perfect in fall/winter bc they’re boots (duh!) but also great for spring/summer with a cute little dress or cut-offs.¬† May not be able to wait til my birthday though since they are selling out so so fast!

5) Emerald Diego bucket bag: bc I’m obsessed with green & all things Wang.

6) Anais loafers in rose gold: bc I’m obsessed with rose gold & all things Wang and though I’m not expecting to get them, they’re impossible to leave off a wishlist…

Additional Wishlist items:

Mr. Dannijo stackable rings

Lastly, books! “How to Cook Everything” by Mark Bittman and “Blood Bones and Butter” by Gabrielle Hamilton.

Awards shows (besides the Golden Globes) are usually pretty dull, but last night’s Emmys were so fun to watch!! It was funny, sweet, and the fashion was interesting (instead of safe). Here are my picks for standouts.


Sofia Vergara in Vera Wang


Padma in Armani

This is also a terrible photo but the color just doesn’t work on her skin tone and something about the fit is all sorts of wrong!

Yesterday, VERY suddenly & unexpectedly the temperature just¬†plummeted! ¬†I hate it & am not mentally prepared. ¬†Neither is my wardrobe… all my pants are dirty, boots & closed toe heels are in closets in CT as are all my transitional sweaters & coats.

So allow me to reminisce about my trip to Colombia…

The head of shoes & accessories at Rag & Bone got my fav oxfords (& their first pair of shoes) made mini for her twin nieces… ADORABLE! & I’m so jealous…

Then there’s this lil girl…

Remember her from earlier this year?? Alia Wang, Alex’s niece, in custom Wang & platform converse (you can’t see the platform in this photo but oh, it’s there…). ¬†This girl is insane. ¬†Though she is obviously adorable I can’t say I love the tight cut-out shirt for little ones…

Hands down, BEST fall campaign EVER: Lanvin

My narcissistic pup

The kitchen is definitely my favorite room of the house!

It may be a little cramped but its the only room where every item has its place.

The view from the kitchen!

Beach vacation

The last fruits of summer

My go-to nail colors have always been red-based: coral, pink, orange, purples. I was totally on the yellow band wagon 2 yrs ago, but have always been reluctant to try blue or green nails. ¬†This summer I’ve gone green a few times and am loving it so maybe now it’s time to be blue?? ¬†

Chanel “Les Jeans de Chanel” nail polishes in Blue Rebel, Coco Blue, and Blue Boy – inspired by denim colors – may just be the way to start! Coming out tomorrow for Fashion’s Night Out.
