When I’m off set, I love to keep my skin looking as fresh as possible. Less is more. How do you wear sublte statement makeup? I say, stick with a statement eye or lip, and keep everything else just glowing and natural. Here I show you my 2 minute cat-eye, with a clean fresh skin. The Lancôme GRANDIÔSE LINER is a lifesaver. It’s one of the best I’ve found as of late. Their foundation stick is also extremely smooth and makes my face feel extra soft. So rare for a foundation that doubles as a really good concealer. Right now, my skin feels better than it has ever been. I’ll share my secrets in my next video.
The Bite Beauty multi-stick in Biscottiis the base to my daily makeup looks. I give my lids, cheeks, and lips one swipe. That’s the pink you see here.
I am so excited to give you a first ever, sneak peek inside my home! I bought this loft in Dumbo, Brooklyn about a year ago, and fell in love with it’s open space and amazing, iconic location. Not to mention, huge kitchen and closet (closet used more than kitchen hehe). It’s my special place to create, grow, and feel inspired! Waking up to the view of the Empire State building every morning easily gets me in that New York City groove. Enjoy this peek inside my home!

One final recap from our Costa Rica trip earlier this year. I can’t believe that was almost 4 months ago! I still remember that trip like it happened yesterday though. What an amazing experience it was with my sister Dylana, our friend Kiaraand her boyfriend Mike. We spent the first half of our time in Costa Rica staying at the Four Seasons Peninsula Papagayo. My favorite part of our stay there was the easy access to the beach and the unlimited opportunities to get adventurous in the water. We surfed, we paddle boarded, zip lined and jet skied our way through our part of Costa Rica. We went wild, and we got tan, and we danced to local music. It was such a freeing experience. But although we were adventurous most of the time we did get to relax for a little bit, too. Massages and some time at the hydro therapy spa. My body felt renewed. I wish I could go back and relive it all again. And again. And again.
Well, at least now I can with this video we made with footage from our trip. Check it out below and follow my YOUTUBE. Filmed by Mike Bish
Dylana and I collaborated with the amazing NYC based band, City of the Sun, to perform at the ANTHOM Soho store opening. The boys and I have been trying to plan a performance for over a year now, and it’s been magical seeing everything come to life with everyone’s insanely busy schedules. Singing and music are in our blood. It’s what gets us through the day. It’s what inspires what we wear. Where we go. What we do. We love that raw, deep soulful voice and sound. Nothing felt better than singing along to City of the Sun’s dreamy instrumentals. They take you to an alternate universe every single time. ANTHOM was the absolute perfect place to put on a gig. It’s luxurious high white ceilings, copper accents, and minimal elevated aesthetic. It’s my best friend’s store and I couldn’t be more proud to see her unique vision come to life. Be sure to check it out at 25 Mercer Street in Soho. My go-to for anything super chic. Dylana and I both wore head-to-toe Yune Hofor the night.
Dylana and I have been giving you a little taste of music more this year which is exciting. We took 3 of our favorite songs and gave it a little flamenco rock touch for the night. Bang Bang by Nancy Sinatra. Chrystalised by The XX. Sea of Love by Phil Phillips. Thanks to all of the lovely readers who came out for the night. We had a packed house!
