Casual Friday at Assembly Row

It's been a strange few weeks in a number of ways but the biggest change? My BFF moved to Florida! She had a quick two weeks to pack and be on her way so we decided to check off a couple of boxes on her Boston bucket list! Like an afternoon at the vibrant Assembly Row! We ate sandwiches from Paul by the river, got ice cream from JP Licks, and did some serious retail damage.

For such a casual afternoon, I went with a shorter twist on my summer uniform from BCBGeneration with my favorite gold belt.

Patrice Vinci Salon Media Event

On Thursday night, I hosted a big blogger and media event at my favorite Boston salon, Patrice Vinci. Patrice recently asked me to start helping with their social media plan, so to celebrate we decided to throw a little party! A great crowd turned out and I can't say thank you enough to all of the many stylists who stayed late, the amazing sponsors who donated their time and products, and, of course, all of the guests!

My Summer Uniform

If you happen to run into me at all this summer, you'll most likely find me in my new summer uniform: the black midi dress. It's easy, comfortable and looks good on pretty much everyone!

I've been wearing a denim jacket over mine with flats or flip flops during the day and pairing it with heels for night. Just by swapping out some jewelry, I've created a few different looks with just one dress. My favorite part though? The discreet but sexy slit on the side. Perfect.

4 Beauty Essentials That Every Woman Should Own

Typically, I dislike telling other women exactly what they need. But when it comes to these four cult-favorite beauty products, I'm confident that you'll love them as much as I do!

First up, the perfect red lipstick. I think I've tried every shade, combination and brand in search of the most flattering crimson lip. The conclusion? MAC's famous Ruby Woo (beloved by celebrities like Rihanna, Gwen Stefani and Dita Von Teese) frequently sells out for a reason: It's truly the perfect shade of red that works on every skin tone.

As much as I love my gel manicures, they really do a number on my (already weak) nails. When they need a break, I love Deborah Lippman's A Fine Romance. The sheer nude has a touch of shimmer that gives it a nice pearly sheen. It's the perfect neutral polish for summer and hides any damage.

During the summer, I'm a big fan of wearing BB Cream plus concealer instead of heavy foundations. The best one? DiorSkin Nude BB Cream! It's super light and moisturizes skin while correcting and concealing any imperfections. If you're only buying one beauty product this summer, I cannot recommend DiorSkin's BB Cream enough!

Finally, NARS' Highlighting Blush Powder in Albatross is like having a personal spotlight. Dust it across your cheekbones and just above your brows for instantly brighter skin. I always finish off my makeup with it. This color is also perfect for Kardashian-style contouring too!

Life. Lately.

Boston, Boston Fashion Blog, Boston Beauty Blog, Boston Lifestyle Blog,
Lately, life has been very busy! Between a new social media client, working at Crush Boutique, and writing for Bustle, I feel like I haven't had a moment to myself- let alone time for blogging! But I've found that being busy has actually been really good for me because, let's face it, I need some serious structure!

What else have I been up to? Well, checking out the new Miniluxe location inside the Shops at the Prudential with Renata (of The Untouchables) and Kristen (You probably know her as The Boston Fashionista.) The salon (Miniluxe's first in a mall setting) is bright and airy with a strict focus on cleanliness and a comfortable pedicure bar (complete with plenty of outlets for charging all those devices!) I'm really looking forward to making good use of the private rooms for things like brow shaping!

But before that, of course, I was rocking out to Tove Lo at Boston Calling on City Hall Plaza over Memorial Day weekend.
