I can’t visit New York, without dropping by my favorite blowout spot. Caity also joined me for her first Drybar experience. Blowouts and a Ryan Gosling movie started off the morning (which was so appropriate, since we would be showered with Eva Mendes’s graceful presence later in the day.)

The day kicked off with an interview with the absolute fabulous Eva Chen. Her down to earth style, and amazing stories about her effortless fashion choices (she paired her mom’s 90s crop top underneath that stunning dress she was wearing), make her up to everything you would imagine an Editor-in-Chief to be.

Erica Domesek, Gabi Gregg and Alisa Gould gave advice on engaging in the blogging world.

Eva Mendes looked unbelievably stunning. With her incredibly down to earth demeanor, when asked about her footwear, she simply took off her shoe began searching for the designer’s name. IMG_5272

She then asked a blogger to borrow her scarf to demonstrate how she styles her signature head wraps.

Styled in her new line for New York & Co, she explained how heavily involved she is in the process. More excitingly she expressed to us her love for the vintage belt she paired for under $3!

Post-wedding glow and all, Kate Bosworth gushed about her wedding day, Oscar de la Renta, and her new collection for TopShop (that she came decked in, looking so effortlessly edgy-chic) She really emphasized her love for fashion as a reflection of one’s inner self, and I couldn’t agree more.

Empire State of Mind

My 7am arrival, left me with an entire day to get lost in the city. There’s an energy in New York City like no other, and I love getting wrapped up in it. The glitter drenched sneaks I bought at Kate Spade this week not only came through with receiving endless compliments, but after about 5 miles of exploring on day 1, my feet were in tip top shape, sans blisters! That is unheard of for roaming the New York streets. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a fabulous statement shoe, that exudes comfort! I ventured over to Le Pain Quotidien for a tumeric chai latte, followed by a stroll through Central Park, because there’s nothing quite like it during the Fall months.

After coming across the Jin Soon Spa in numerous glossy reads as being a top nail salon, known for their nail art, I’ve been itching to go (their instagram feed serves for amazing nail inspiration) Upon arrival, I asked for a gold leaf design, tucked in between layers of CND gel manicure. Bimala intricately placed each piece one by one, and I left with the most fabulous manicure I ever did see.

While in the West Village, I spotted David’s Tea, another spot I’ve been dying to try, because tea obsessed would be an understatement. Overwhelmed upon arrival, (and being the incredibly indecisive person that I am) I didn’t know where to begin, as I smelled and learned about the most popular bunch, my eyes came across the name “Glitter and Gold.” As the employee opened up the canister, I set eyes on the chicest tea I had ever seen, as gold glitter and pearls shimmer throughout the loose tea.  If I could invent a tea, this would surely be my signature. I left with a supply to go, along with the All About Nuts tea, because it literally smelled like a walk in Central Park.

After my glittery tea, a fabulous gold leaf manicure and my sparkly sneaks winning the award for an orthopedic equivalent of comfort, I pretty ecstatic. The little things in life.

I went back to the hotel, got ready and headed out to fabulous pre-fabb events. At the trendy Refinery Hotel, I caught up with Taylor, Shelby, Jackie and Katie over cocktails and the latest crimson lip hues Jane Iredale has to offer. Afterwards we headed over to the Reiki Salon for a Paul Mitchell styling of loose curls.
