Miss May Cakes


I wanted to share an adorable blogger gift that I got recently with you. As you have recently learned, I have always loved to bake! I've been getting into complex recipes lately, so this e-book from Miss May Cakes has really inspired me to get into the kitchen. It shows you step-by-step how to make really fancy cakes like the ones you see on culinary TV shows. It also explains all of the tools you will need to make baking easier. There are great cakes featured in the book, even a cheetah purse cake! How cool is that? These cakes are lovely for events like tea parties, birthdays, and blogger meetups. I really want to use one of the recipes for something this summer. I will surely let you know how it goes!

Get to Know Marist Senior Designers

I am sure you can tell that I adore the Marist Fashion program based off of my last posts about them! If you missed it, click here to see behind the scenes of their fashion department and click here to get the scoop all about the Silver Needle Runway & Awards 2015. It was great having the chance to interview five of their gifted senior designers from the program. Learning about the ladies inspiration for their collections helped me understand the meaning to their designs as I watched them come to life on the runway earlier this month.

Iris Apfel



Credit: The Talks

Lately I've been obsessed with fashion documentaries as seen in one of my latest posts about Dior and I. I went back to The Moviehouse in Millerton with one of my besties to see the latest flick, Iris. This film follows Iris Apfel who is the fashion icon. She is 93 years old and still rocking her style down the streets of NYC. It is seriously amazing how talented and fabuluxe she is. From being an interior designer, Iris has an art and fashion collection that is beyond words. She even had an exhibition based off of her at The Met back in 2005. Iris defines the true meaning of fashion and she remains a huge icon with her witty and genuine personality (also her iconic glasses!). There is no one else to compare to Mrs. Apfel. She is certainly a #GirlBoss!

Presents from Dresslink


Last month I posted about an adorable online shop, Dresslink, that I made a wishlist for. They gifted me the cutest mint romper and a really glam two-piece bodycon dress. I was a tad skeptical with sizing at first just because a lot of items on their website are one size fits all, but it fit well. Both the romper and dress are great pieces for the spring! I adore the color of the romper because it reminds me of a Tiffany box!

My Baking Box


I am no pro chef, but I have always loved being in the kitchen. I'm pretty sure always using my Easy Bake Oven as a kid sparked my baking habits. I currently have a few dishes and pastries that I excel at making besides my favorite ready-to-bake cookie dough. Knowing me, I'm always up for a new challenge and I found a great new way to do so. Sometimes I want to try something new, but I don't know where to begin. My Baking Box solved my problems and I couldn't be happier that I got the chance to work with them to review this.

Wisdom from DVF


I have always adored Diane von Furstenberg and her extensive wisdom. A few of the things you can identify her as is: former royalty (still royalty in my mind), president of the CFDA, queen of the fashion world, feminine icon, and the best reality TV show star (House of DVF has kept me up forever at night!). This week one of my besties and I went to the beautiful New York Public Library for an amazing event where she discussed her life and career. We checked in and got seats right in front of the stage! The author Rhonda Garelick who wrote Mademoiselle: Coco Chanel and the Pulse of History, was also on the panel.

Dior and I


The other day I was super pumped to go to the theater to see the new fashion documentary, Dior and I, directed by Frédéric Tcheng. I've been hearing all about this film which led me to right to The Moviehouse and it had to be the cutest theater I've ever been to. I mean you get to watch the movie in a beautiful screening room with couches, surrounded by artwork created by local artisans while eating luxury snacks. What better quality entertainment could someone ask for?
