Sleep Soundly Sunday + I've Teamed Up with P&G Try it & Love it

January 30, 2015   


I’m so excited to share with you that I’ve teamed up with P&G’s Try it & Love it “Sleep Soundly Sunday” program. I’ll be working with the two trusted brands Febreze and ZzzQuil. The Sleep Soundly Sunday program is all about helping you get a good night’s sleep so you can wake up refreshed Monday morning for the new week ahead.

According to a recent survey fielded by Febreze and ZzzQuil in partnership with the National Sleep Foundation, 1 in 5 Americans struggle more to fall asleep on Sunday nights compared to other nights of the week. I don’t know about you, but I can totally relate. Many times, just thinking about my to-do list for the upcoming week is enough to keep me tossing and turning at night.

As part of my partnership with P&G’s Try it & Love it program, I’ll be sharing tips to make falling asleep on Sunday nights easier with the help of Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist and ZzzQuil. I can’t wait to share with you the results along with my tips, so be sure to stay tuned.

Beauty Favorites: Easy Look on the Go

January 28, 2015   

As a mom, I'm always looking for beauty products that can get me out the door in a matter of seconds. Here are a few of my favorite products I'm loving this month: 

John Frieda Frizz Ease Air-Dry Waves: My hair is getting super long and a hair cut is past overdue. Needless to say, I barely have any time to actually blow dry or curl it. That is why I really like this product. You simply apply to wet hair and let it air-dry. It give the appearance of natural, soft curls. 

Restoring Rosehip Oil: I once heard about Rosehip Oil on Dr. Oz and decided to give it a try. It's really inexpensive (about $12 bucks at WholeFoods) and I use it as a moisturizer before I apply my makeup.  It leaves my skin looking hydrated and it's also suppose to be really good for you. 

Lancome Grandiose Mascara: I love, love, love this mascara. Even if I'm crunched for time in the mornings, I never like to leave home without mascara. It makes a world of a difference. This one looks very natural and makes your eyelashes look really long (without looking clumpy). 

Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour (A14): At a photo shoot, a makeup artist recently got me hooked on cheek stains (instead of blush powder). It looks more natural in my opinion and gives you a nice glow. I love this one from Clinique, which adds the perfect amount of color. 



VF's Closet: Layered Up

January 27, 2015   

Here's another outfit picture from our trip to New York last week. I braved the cold and took off my coat for a few seconds to snap this picture. I'm so glad we went last week, especially since there's a blizzard hitting New York this week (to my east coast readers I hope you're staying warm and safe). 

I paired this plaid button-down shirt from J.Crew (which I scored for under $30 bucks from their online outlet store) with this MNG by MANGO sweater and grey skinny jeans.

Mommy Mondays: School Drop-Off Style

January 26, 2015   



Last week we kicked off our "School-Drop Off Style" series in which I share with you what I wear to drop-off my two-year old at pre-school (here's my first post in case you missed it). For today's look, I paired this Madewell sweater underneath a collared shirt  and dark skinny jeans.  Dark jeans are always a must-have in my book for new moms. They're very versatile and help conceal any food stains (my little guy loves spilling food on me during breakfast). 

These shoes are actually from Crocs and were designed by Italian designer Stefano Furiani. They're very comfortable, which is the first thing I look for in shoes. To finish off my look I added oversized sunglasses to conceal dark circles or when I don't get to do my make-up in the mornings. 

What are some of your outfit go-to's when it comes to school drop-off?

January Fashion Wish List

January 23, 2015   



As a true fashionista I have already began compiling my next wish list of wants only a few weeks after the holidays. I’m a big fan of mixing prints so it’s not a surprise that I was immediately drawn to this sweet striped shift dress and floral sneakers. The dress looks easy and stylish which are two musts for this mommy on the go. Together they create a perfect weekend uniform and the ideal outfit to welcome spring.

I love a patterned shoe that can add a pop of fun to any outfit and these slip-ons are just that. I have been coveting this J. Crew tote bag for weeks especially now that my little one is two years old and I’m ready to transition from my diaper bag to a tote bag. I like that this one is structured and stylish in a classic color. I would absolutely have it monogrammed for a preppy and vintage feel. This pretty necklace by Catbird gives it the perfect finishing touch. You can pick the shape, metal and message that you want. I adore jewelry with sentimental value like this beautiful necklace.

These items create a chic “go to” outfit that is classic and stylish, while still allowing you to chase your little ones. They are also items that you can mix and match within your wardrobe. Happy shopping!

What is there not to love about floral prints? They're feminine, colorful, and look great with just about anything. I've been obsessed with them for quite some time.  I love how no matter the season, there is always a way to make these beautiful prints work.  Especially during the darker wintery months, they're a great way to liven up any outfit and get you thinking warmer thoughts.

Here we see Jessica Alba pulling off the trend effortlessly by pairing up this colorful topper and Nic + Zoe bottoms ($118).  She keeps the accessories sleek by adding white pumps and an Alice.D color-block leather clutch ($230). Interested in this look? Here's how you too can wear it for less.
