Lately On Instagram

With fall in full swing, there isn’t a more perfect time to be in the city. I have zero weekend trips lined up except maybe a trip or two to the flea market in CT but none the less I’ve been enjoying these cool, fall days.

Shopping on 5th Ave is one of my favorite things to do on Saturday mornings. The stores aren’t as packed and I have all the time in the world to peruse.  Insert Club Monaco‘s 5th Ave location. I’m obsessed. Insert this sweater, these boots, and this vest.

Brunching in the West Village is also a must-do activity in the fall.

A few of my favorite spots as of late include De Santos, Buvette and Extra Virgin.

Last week I announced here that I’m taking the Crest 3D White Strips 2 Week Challenge. I have been using the Crest 3D White Whitestrips Luxe Supreme FlexFit (you can buy here) but they seriously have been working, you guys. Did you know that they whiten just as well as a $500 in-office professional treatment? #swear.

I can’t tell you how much caffeine I consume so I definitely needed to brighten up my smile. These strips are a bit different than other ones I have used in the past because they stretch and mold to my mouth which makes them quite easy to apply.

I’m almost finished with the challenge but will have a full report in November when I’m done (eek – November, scary right?)

Friday Roundup

Friday Favs 10.18.14

Good morning! Happy Saturday. I know I’m a day late on my Friday Roundup this week but wanted to share these glorious navy finds anyhow. I often times think of navy like a neutral. It’s a classic hue that can most certainly be paired with numerous colors to instantly transform a room or space into something modern. Today I’ve rounded up a few things that do right by this color. ONE. A classic kitchen towel with a side of prep. TWO. I’ve been a fan of Anthropologie’s candles for years. It’s been a while since I’ve picked one up but I re-purchased the Volcano candle for my bedroom and the Capri Blue candle for my bathroom last week. Yum. THREE. This desk is…everything. I absolutely love the brass accents. It would compliment any study, office or bedroom.  FOUR. Swap out your standard coffee table for this velvet blue ottoman. FIVE. One can never have to many sets of dishes. This Sonoma Dinnerware Set is ideal for any beach house or cottage.

In other weekend news, I’ve updated my New York restaurant list. I’ve now categorized it to include: Date Night, Girl’s Night, Dinner, Happy Hour and Brunch. I’m working off a serious list of 50 or so restaurants so be sure to check up for regular updates! Oh, and do let me know if you have any other recommendations!
