My Diaper Bag Essentials

Just before my son was born three weeks ago, I was introduced to several new diaper bag essentials. Becoming a mom for the second time, I have noticed the feeling of being overwhelmed had dissipated compared to when I became a first-time-mom almost four years ago because I was prepared and knew which brands were reliable. I remember then that there were so many products out there but I never had the time to read all the reviews and weigh my options.

I am introducing my readers five new brands (and one that is already cherished) I am confident you will fall in love with and take with you wherever you go. Discover these diaper bag must-haves that will make your life all the more easier! View Post

An Interview with the Founder of Idalia Baudo Jewelry

I am so thrilled to introduce you to one of my favorite jewelry brands, Idalia Baudo Jewelry. Each stunning piece in the collection is handmade in Tuscany, and has unique design patterns and textures of woven couture silver and gold mesh. Pieces are crafted from sterling silver, gold vermeil and rose gold. Best of all, each exquisite statement piece is affordable, with prices ranging from $80-$400. Each is so lightweight, feminine, and so soft to the touch.

Each signature design embodies contemporary chic with an edge of sexy and daring, ideal for wearing out to dinner, the theater, out with the girls, or that special event. The beautiful gift wrap even rivals that of world-renowned jewelry stores that line 5th and Madison Avenues. Below, read my exclusive interview with the Founder, Idalia Baudo. We discuss how the brand was founded, the inspiration behind her unique craftsmanship, and about her experience at Jill Zarin’s Lux Lunch.

An Interview with Markus Bender of Nordic Beach

It is a pleasure to introduce my readers to Nordic Beach, a company based in Southern California that has created a cozy, super-soft wrap jacket that can be worn year round. Their jackets currently come in three colors: Fluffy Gray, Fluffy Black, and Fluffy Frappe. These are perfect to wear everywhere: shopping, sporting events, yoga, work, a ski trip, the mountains, or anywhere you want to be comfy and cozy!

I love my Nordic Beach jacket so much! I will be wearing mine to the Hamptons International Film Festival this autumn, out to the park with my children, to the beach, and out shopping. The jacket is especially ideal for postpartum moms. When my son is born, the jacket will help protect him from the wind and the elements as I will be ‘wearing him’ as I am out and about.

Nourishment for the Body

My beauty regiment each morning and evening has always been simple. However, the key to a smart beauty regiment is using products that nourish and hydrate the body. Rather than hide impurities, I try to embrace feeling my best and enhancing these feelings throughout my day. I love island-inspired scents, scrubs, and vegan-friendly products especially made with simple, high quality ingredients. Below you will discover five products I recently discovered that are all about pure nourishment for the body.  View Post

An Interview with Stephanie McTigue of CoFi Leathers

I discovered CoFi Leathers just before I attended Jill Zarin’s 5th Annual Lux Luncheon in Southampton this summer. This refined and affordable genuine leather company, based out of Denver, sells an extensive collection of beautiful and unique clutches, cross-body bags, totes, wristlets, boots, shoes, and more. The name CoFi was created based off of the names of Founder Stephanie McTigue’s sons: “Co”lson and “Fi”nn. Each product created is named after family members or good friends.

To help launch the business and set the standards for impeccable quality, McTigue’s father, Clive, is a leather consultant and has been in the leather business for over 45 years. ‘He actively shares his extensive knowledge of leather manufacturing and product construction with McTigue to ensure that the CoFi brand not only represents style and individuality, but also upholds the highest quality.’ That notion became apparent to me right away as I was introduced to the company. I am in love with their chic and stylish collection that promotes a sense of individuality and confidence. For example, I own the Mollie Cross-Body Convertible Clutch in Rose Gold White and have received dozens of compliments ever since I started using it on a regular basis in July.
