My Life Lately

Hello lovelies! Sorry for the lull last week, life has been quite a blur of late. It’s all good! After a heavenly birthday weekend at the family cabin, the whirlwind began. When it rains . . . well, let’s just say I need a nap.

Smack in the middle of debuting two new products with One Love Organics, we got this news. Needless to say, I nearly passed out.

Instead it was off to NYC for work + play. After a conference I settled into The Nomad Hotel for a lavishly leisurely weekend with the ladies. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in the city. Simply exquisite service, setting and staff.

We did what any proper tourist should do: ate, drank, shopped and walked until we could walk no more in 97 degree heat (thank goodness for Murad Skin Perfecting Primer). Every single meal and morsel was divine, but ABC Kitchen’s Carrot Avocado Salad is the one I intend to re-create at home.

I also got one of the best, most thorough manicures of my life at the Essie flagship salon. Rosa had a way with my cuticles and managed to turn my nails into perfect little coral chiclets. That’s Sunday Funday from the Naughty Nautical collection. You can’t tell from the pic, but it has the faintest satiny finish that I adore. P.S. that’s Anne M Cramer’s Vitamin C dress in the background. Divine.

I’m of course sad to return to the reality but looking forward to a week of getting back into a healthy routine, starting with lots of green juices. Do Kalejitos count?
