Hey Fashionistas! I kicked off my weekend with a date night in the city. Me and husband attended the Seal Concert at Irving Plaza. Seal’s performance was amazing from start to finish. I love that the venue offers a intimate setting where you are able to have an up close experience with the artist. The highlight of the night was singing along to “Kiss By A Rose”, that song is and will always be MY jam!

Hey Fashionistas! This week I celebrated my 27th birthday at the super stylish restaurant, Beauty & Essex, in NYC. The upscale eatery features a shopable pawn shop at the front, which leads to the restaurants entrance.

Right as you step inside you’re greeted with a gorgeous chandelier and spiral staircase.
There’s a cool vibe throughout the restaurant, from the glam decor to the dim lighting accompanied by the 90’s old school hits. One surprising treat I enjoyed was the pink champagne served in the ladies room. Unexpected, but such a fun touch to add.
The menu serves a variety of American classics with a slight twist. I started with the bite size tomatoe soup & grilled cheese for my appetizer, along with a hand crafted cucumber melon cocktail. For dinner I had a good ole’ cheese burger with fries & topped the night off with the chocolate and raspberry donuts. If you’re in the NYC area make sure to check out this hot spot for yourself!
BUT I have to admit, having my daughter along was probably the highlight of my night! <3
Hey Fashionistas! Over the weekend I spent sometime in the city with my family. We checked out St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is absolutely beautiful. The Pope actually spoke there while he was in NYC last month. I thought that was a pretty neat fact. We also walked around Rockefellar Plaza. I love watching the people skate around on the ice rink. Occasionally you catch the neebie skater who takes a long fall. lol … Only a few more weeks until all the holiday decorations go up and my favorite the huge Christmas tree! I can’t wait!
Hey Fashionistas! As a new momma it has been a blast discovering the must have baby products. After the first month or so you figure out the bare necessities to pack in your diaper bag. One of mine is this super cute burp shawl I got from Burp Necessity.You can’t have spit up ruining your outfit now can you? #MomProblems lol. I love the fact that it fits so perfectly on my shoulders. Unlike receiving blankets that tend to slip around. AND of course the fact that its so dang cute. Oh & yes we are clearly NY Giants fans! If you click the link below you can check out all the adorable patterns and styles the company offers online! Happy Shopping, Mommas!
Hey Fashionistas! I can’t believe Savannah is officially one month old. It’s been such an amazing adventure already. We’ve had family visiting the past few weeks & have been taking them to check out the city. Each trip out gets easier and easier with the baby. It definitely helps having a hassle free stroller to weave in and out of the people. Shout out to Graco for making it! I feel like I’m finally getting a hang of this mommy thing!
Hey Fashionistas! My little girl, Savannah Louise, has finally made her big debut! Needless to say free time is slim to none with a newborn. I am finally getting a chance to share my last pregnancy #OOTD. Seeing my baby bump go is an odd feeling, as I catch myself rubbing my tummy, as if she’s still inside. I’m going to miss my big ole’ bump. Stay tuned, as I will be posting pictures from a DIY newborn shoot I did earlier this week.
Hey Fashionistas! So as an expecting new mom, it’s been a learning process figuring out what works best for my body. Like many Prego mama’s out there, sleeping is often the biggest pregnancy discomfort. With the the obvious extra weight and constant need to sleep on your side, a “good nights rest” becomes less and less the further along you get in your pregnancy.
For me personally, sleeping with a Bellifly pillow has made the world of difference. The pillow was designed last year by Jessica Rakos, during her pregnancy with her daughter.
My issue when laying down was the lack of support. I tended to roll from one side to the other. The Bellifly helps position your tummy and stops you from laying on your back. With the cushion of the pillow the painful numbing of my hips has went away and allowed me to finally catch some much needed Zzzz!
The pillow is super compact while still providing hip and back support. I love that you can position it to fit your own personal comfort. Also, with only a few days left of my pregnancy, I plan on bringing the pillow with me to the hospital for nursing. I’m sure it’ll be much need and give me great arm support while feeding my little one.

Hey Fashionistas! While I was in California with my family we were able to have brunch at Claire’s at the Museum. We took advantage of the beautiful weather in Long Beach and sat outside under the huge yellow umbrellas. The tables were a tight squeeze, but the view was absolutely perfect. The options on the menu are endless with something for everyone. I ended up getting the yummy Brioche French Toast!
