Someone once told me that there are enough restaurants in New York City to eat out every night for 54 years and never eat at the same place twice. Whether it’s true or not, it reminded me once again that there are seemingly endless amounts of things to do, people to meet, and places to see in this city. It can be easy to stick to your favorite spots, but I know I need to make the most of my days here. One day last week it was a friend’s birthday so we headed to Tribeca to eat at a restaurant called Two Hands, which I can’t recommend enough. When you walk in, you’ll find a quaint but bustling restaurant serving up everything from Avocado toast to burgers to acai bowls. After lunch, we strolled around Tribeca and just took in the neighborhood. Here’s to more perfect New York City days ahead!
Let’s be honest, I’ll use any excuse to stock up on some new makeup. This time around, I heard about the Kylie Cosmetics lip kit restock and figured I would get a few treats to take me into the spring and summer season. Here are a few of my very favorite new items and makeup tips…
As your fringe-filled Instagram feeds and flower crown-wearing Snapchat filters might have alerted you, festival season is officially upon us! I’m so excited to team up with Target to share a variety of new festival styles that I hope will inspire you this season. From dark and moody to bright and bold, I promise you that there’s something for every festival-goer.
Back when I was living in Southern California during undergrad, my whole group of friends decided to go to Coachella for our senior year and it was one of the best weekends of my life. It was just a day after we turned in our 60+ page senior theses, so we threw caution to the wind, let our hair down (literally) and enjoyed the ride. Because I was a total newbie, there were a few things I wish I had known before I dove into the madness, so I thought I’d share the looks I created along with just a few tips I gathered along the way.
Dark and moody: For those of you who love an all-black look, there’s no reason you have to stray away from it just because it’s hot out. I recommend choosing a lightweight fabric with slits like this Mossimo dress to keep you cool. Since it’s nice and simple, you can wear a strappy swimsuit underneath or a chain belt to add a little flare.
Bright and bold: Spring is the time to embrace your love of color, and festivals are no exception. I love this top and shorts set because they’re decorative and fun yet completely weather-friendly. The shorts are loose and airy so they won’t cramp your style, and the print adds the bohemian vibes you’re lusting after. I recommend a crossbody bag with a secure closure like this one from Target so you can dance from dusk ‘til dawn and never have to worry about losing your must-haves – your phone, wallet, touch-up makeup, a hair tie for when it gets really hot, sunscreen, a small bottle of water…you know, the festival essentials.
If you create your own dark and moody or bright and bold TargetStyle festival looks, I would love to see them! Tag me and hashtag #TargetStyle.
