American Style, Italian Leather – My Armadio

- Fashion

We love all things Italian – luxury, food, bread, coffee and definitely leather.  Our Armadio bags are no exception to that!  We typically wear our bags more than any other piece of clothing so before we considered Armadio, we wanted to make sure these bags were going to last and were versatile enough that they can be worn daily.  {Spoiler Alert} They are.   Armadio bags are direct to consumer, which means that we as the consumer can get these bags without the…

Found Myself a CHRLDR

- Collaborators, Fitness

  Countdown with me: 81 days. 81 days 6 hours. 81 days 6 hours 47 minutes (and counting) until SUMMER! Contrary to my typical procrastination ways, I’m getting a head start on my summer body prep this year and there’s no better way to feel motivated to get fit than to do it in style with CHRLDR.           As a college student, my second skin is activewear (it just comes with the territory), and I’m not complaining.…

Statement Skirts

- Fashion

Look ma, no pants!  Statement skirts are everything right now and while this is actually a skort, it still made a statement.   Rocking a mini skirt in the winter is bold because, well, because it’s winter.  I love pairing them with sheer black tights and flat ankle booties.  The tights do little to keep your legs warm but at least you have the flat booties so you can move quickly back into the heat, if I’m being honest.  This skirt…

Rent The Runway

- Collaborators, Fashion

Ladies, we’ve all been there. The stressful “I have nothing to wear” stage of fury when trying to plan an outfit for a big event. My room can be completely spotless until I flip through my wardrobe and can’t find the perfect piece for whatever event is coming up. In an instant, tops are tossed and shoes cover the floor like you just walked into “the land of misfit looks”. Rent The Runway saves you from the stress of searching your…

We love New York.  Both of our parents are born and raised New Yorkers and we still have most of our family up there.  One of my favorite times of year to go up there is during the holidays.  The light displays and store windows are nothing short of amazing.  This year we went up there the week after Christmas with our family and had SO much fun.   My Dad grew up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.…

Utopia Found at Sassoon Salon

- Beauty, Collaborators

Hair is funny isn’t it?  We’re all a little more obsessed with it than we probably care to admit.  We cut it, dye it, shave it, straighten it, curl it and everything in-between.  Sometimes bad hair can set the mood for your whole day!  So we set out looking for hair utopia and found it with Sassoon Salon and their new collection, aptly called “Utopia”! u·to·pi·a yo͞oˈtōpēə/ (noun) an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect.  …
