Masculine Scents

My boyfriend wears this Yves Saint Laurent cologne, sometimes I snuggle extra close to him because the scent is subtle but also warm, spicy and intoxicating. I remember when I was younger, my mother used to always wear masculine scents. Remember this oldies but goodie? I think I'd like to jump on the bandwagon too. I've been wanting to try this and this. Black XS by Paco Robanne and this Men Energizing EDT spray from DKNY have also peaked my interest. Would you wear a masculine scent?

What Staph Likes (Feeling: Tired)

 
Tired of soggy cauliflower? roast it!
 
Would you like fries with that? too bad you're dead. Drive-thru funerals, seriously?
 
 
 
Riveting photos of the Underground Railroad.
 
Learning to love criticism.
 
Best way to reheat leftover pizza.
 
A baked potato party! My mother, Alex and I do this all the time!

Fallen For Fall

To me, fall has always felt like a season full of wonder and magic. For some reason, the shift in the weather feels like a fresh start. I can't help but  to feel positively revived by the change of pace, which is funny, because everything feels slower and lazier, but in the best possible way.

Last week, on my way to Cafeteria for Yves' cousin's 30th birthday party, I had to pull my blazer tighter onto me to keep the chilly air at bay. Like the geek that I am, I suddenly felt giddy, with visions of hot toddies, throw pillows and a roaring fire swirling around my crazy brain. And no, I don't even have a fireplace in my house. I don't know what it is about this time of year, I  just feel warmer and full of hope, like anything is possible.
Speaking of feeling warmer, I'm in dire need of cozy sweaters. What do you think of this one from J.Crew?

Scandalously Stylish

Who doesn't want to look like Olivia Pope?

The Scandal-inspired collection at The Limited is just too good for words! I love, love, love this dolman wrap coat and the capes, aah! I can't wait for the return of Scandal tonight, will you be watching?

I'm also excited to see Viola Davis on "How to Get Away With Murder." There are so many strong, intelligent female characters on television this season, Bravo! and a huge bravo to the amazingly talented Shonda Rhimes.

Back In NYC

I flew to Ft. Myers, Florida, for my grandmother's birthday celebration last week and now I'm back in NYC! I slept in one of these comfy little numbers from Pottery Barn but nothing feels better than my own bed. It was wonderful to see my cousins, we talked, ate, laughed, danced, and I think we're closer than we've ever been. I just love those silly, crazy girls.

Disney Princesses Redux

Disney Princesses have never been so bad. Emmanuel Viola, an Italian illustrator and digital artist turned the prim and proper Disney princesses of yesteryear into total modern day rebels, with piercings and tattoos to boot. No need to come charging on your white steed, Prince Charming! these ladies are certainly no damsels in distress.

The fall collection for MANGO is stippled with chunky-knit sweaters, denims and plaids with colors ranging from greens, burgundies, royal blues and greys. I love that hooded leather jacket, don't you?

What's Your Beauty Routine?

My nighttime beauty regimen has been the same for as long as I can remember. I began using eye cream in my early twenties because I figured the best way to avoid wrinkles is to reduce its appearance at an early age. My early prevention method seems to have worked so far because I'm in my late twenties and there are no wrinkles in sight. I know I'm speaking a bit prematurely but as the age-old adage goes "black don't crack."

Since we are about to transition from summer to fall, the shift in weather is going to take a major toll on my skin. I'm bracing myself for dry, flaky skin, dark patches, the works. I'm thinking about adding a new moisturizer to my current skin care regimen. I've being using Olay Regenerist as a night cream but it's a little heavy for daily morning use. I need something lightweight and uber moisturizing. I'm thinking this one or this one from Kiehl's. What's your daily beauty routine? weigh in!

Shhh...Happy Birthday Grandma!

So, my family and I are heading to Florida next week Thursday for my Grandmother's 86th birthday bash! It's supposed to be a surprise but despite our best efforts to hide the upcoming celebration, I know she has already put-two-and-two together, she's just astutely aware of everything that one. I love you Grandma! and I can't wait to celebrate you.

I definitely need some shades to shield my extremely sensitive eyes from the hot Florida sun. Although, it's completely out of my price range for right now, I'm really liking this Oakley aviator from Sunglass Hut.

Rings Galore

Lately, every woman I've seen has had their fingers adorned, right to the tip, with delicate golden rings of all shapes and sizes. I bought some affordable pieces from Forever21, but  I find that more than three rings on one hand is a bit too much for my liking. If you're really serious about this trend, you might want to invest in a few pricier selections from Swarovski.
