NYC: You're Invited!

I'm super excited to announce that I will be co-hosting She and Reverie's SS14 Collection Launch this Saturday with Small Girls PR and a plethora of wonderful bloggers!

Described as Moonrise Kingdom meets Marie Antoinette, the event sounds like a total dream and I'm excited to see the new collection by Quinne Myers, one of my favorite local designers. Her creations are whimsical and adorably sweet, which is right is up my alley. Through She and Reverie, she says that she, "aims to create a world that is fit for a modern-day fairy tale princess." The new collection is sure to be perfectly charming! 

Event Details:
Join us next Saturday, August 24th, as we celebrate she and reverie's SS14 Camp Versailles collection launch, with an event melding the classic Girl Scout kitsch plus the luxurious languor and grown-up opulence of 17th century Versailles. Shop the exclusive trunk show from previous collections 'Darling of the Sea' and 'One for Sorrow, Two for Joy' at 15% off, while enjoying fun girly grown-up camp activities!

Beauty Review: FACEFACTS By Lori

I was recently sent some beauty products from a company called FACEFACTS BY Lori. It's a company that specializes in hand-crafted, all natural and certified organic ingredients, specifically for lip products. I love my lip sticks so I was excited to test them out! All natural has become a new priority for me, especially lip products since I basically end up eating them by the end of the day. These specific lipsticks by FACEFACTS are awesome because, among other things,  there's no animal testing, no certified dyes and lakes, no mineral oil, no petolatum, no lead and they're 100% parabens free. All important stuff to avoid! Aesthetically, I really like how creamy and pigmented the colors are and enjoy the pretty packaging. My only complaint might be that the colors don't necessarily look the same on as they do in the tube, but it's actually a big plus because, once on my lips, the colors were ten times more vibrant! I especially loved the Passion Fruit which is the perfect fall color for my skintone. Scroll down for the three shades I tested, along with their accompanying lip liner. 

Lip pencils: Plum and Hazelnut

Oh yes, and the soap smelled lovely!

Friends and Picnics

Earlier this season a few friends and I got together for an amazing Brooklyn park-picnic. We ate a ridiculous amount of food and hula-hooped the day away (In other news, I'm a terrible hula-hooper). Everyone looked so lovely and stylish, I just had to capture a few shots! It was a perfect summery day.
