REST IN PEACE OSCAR


This sad news has left me a bit numb.  I never had the opportunity to meet Oscar so maybe the sadness is yet another reminder, that we aren't invincible.  Over the past year, it seems my life has been filled crossroads at every corner.  Each event propelling me ahead, yet I face the struggle sometimes of which direction to go.  Today I will take a deep breath, be grateful for everything I do have and let these words echo in my ear... "be the designer of your own destiny."

Oscar, may your smile forever shine on.

FALL MUST-HAVES: RED VELVET



Oscar de la Renta started my red velvet obsession when this gorgeous get-up strutted down the runway. One way to make a statement is by showing off some sultry, scarlet hues this season.

GIRLS NIGHT IN: NAIL + PAMPER PARTY




Over the weekend I invited a few gal pals over and hosted a Girl's Night In: Nail + Pamper Party. We all have such hectic schedules, with work and travel, so it was nice to just relax and enjoy each other's company. The topics of the evening were: men, fashion, empire building, social media, men, nails, fashion week and oh, men!  The night was filled with gossip, nail painting and giggles from the sangria I made. A perfect night.

We all fell in love with the Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ polish.  It was easy to use and has a nice, round brush tip for messy people (like me).  Our nails looked beautiful and shiny, no chipping and it's long-lasting.  I did my nails last week and they were as good as new by the weekend, but I just wanted to paint them again and join in the DIY fun! My fave perfect pair is too haute and redgy, perfect for fall! 

My best at-home manicure tip I can share with you, is to apply two coats of your color, starting at the side of your nail.  Two or three strokes should be plenty, wait to dry, then apply the top coat. Easy and gets you the perfect salon style mani!

STAYCATION MUST HAVES




Summer is over, (ugh.) but now we look forward to the hustle and bustle of the holiday prep, shopping and a house full of guests.  So before it's too late, take some time out and treat yourself to a little staycation.  I know many of you are workaholics, business owners or stay at home moms, just like I am (dogs only for me), and that is exactly why I'm writing this post. For you. 

Pampering yourself shouldn't be something you think about once or twice a year. It should be a weekly or monthly ritual.  It gives us time to think, unwind and plan out our next level of #empirebuilding.  Here's your reminder, from me to you. Relax, love yourself and don't forget to breathe.  Cheers to the kick-ass women in the world!
