Galentines Day Gifts and Tchotchke’s for Every Type of BFF

Tchotchke: a small object that is decorative rather than strictly functional; a trinket. Do you know what I’m talking about now? Ha! Who else had no idea it was spelled like that?! I love receiving thoughtful little trinkets from my friends, so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. You should never take for granted your girlfriends. The good ones are in your life through it all, so on Valentine’s Day, it’s so nice to give them something that makes them feel special. Since tchotchkes are technically items that aren’t functional, I wanted to throw in functional items too.…

Valentines Day Gifts for Him

For me, the males of the world are the HARDEST to shop for. I’m so relieved after Christmas and then all of a sudden I need a new gift idea for Valentine’s day. I came up with a number of great gift ideas under $50 for the holidays. But if you’ve already seen those, I’m going to add some amazing items here today too! I’ve been with my boyfriend for eight years now so over that time I’ve come up with some pretty solid gift ideas and others not-so-great. Great: David Yurman Cross (also comes in a Star of David). He hasn’t taken…

Favorite Outfit and Love Quotes for Valentine’s Day

Cheers to another very me (and I’m sure also very you since you’re here on the blog) Valentine’s Day look. Of course, it’s mostly black, ha!

This look is definitely more toned down than last week’s Valentine’s Day look but I think the wine cami adds some romance! I’ve been dying for a CamiNYC camisole forever now. Something that’s been on my to-do list for quite some time now is to shop in store more. Especially in small boutiques in my area (Westchester County). So…

Valentines Day Style That’s Not Pink + Shopping Tips!

In case you ever foolishly forget, I am never not thinking of you.  By now you know I’m not the type of girl who likes to purchase something I’ll only wear once. Especially if it’s something expensive. Which means I’ll be taking a few things into consideration before I buy something special for Valentines Day. Of course, I want something new, what girl doesn’t want to look special for her besties or her boyfriend/husband?! But I’m certainly not going to break the bank for it and you shouldn’t either. This also means my Valentine’s Day style won’t be something pink. There are…

Styling Staples: Bomber Jacket + Leather Jacket

Styling staples can be tricky because if you wear a number of staples together, you end up with an average looking outfit. Which is fine if that’s what you’re into. But you’re here, so I’m guessing you’re looking to be a little more exceptional than your average, and maybe for a little inspo? Am I right? Personally, I think there can never be enough style inspiration for staples you already have in your closet. I love looking for inspiration on Pinterest, on the streets of New York City and in magazines and on their websites. You could say in regards to inspiration, more…
