Kips Bay Showhouse 2017

kips-bay-decorator-showhouse-2016-01Among the highlights of Spring is the Kips Bay Decorator Show House in NYC. What began in 1973 as a means of supporting the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club has turned into a highly anticipated designer show house, drawing from top talent across the country. One of the names that I am most excited to see is Ken Fulk, who will surely give us not just a decorated room, but an experience.

Tuesday, May 1st through Wednesday, June 1st

125 East 65th Street (b/w Park and Lexington Avenues)

Walking on Sunshine – Soludos

I have FINALLY put away all my boots. Yes…..winter lingered around here. But, now I’m on the hunt for cute summer soles. And, though I am typically a sandal gal, these Soludos slip ons are calling my name. Perfect for travel and running errands. Perfect in case you haven’t had time for that summer’s-almost here- pedicure. Perfect with any outfit. My only problem is narrowing them down.

The “mimosa” pair is my favorite. Seriously… fun are they?! Like walking on sunshine!

What’s your favorite pair?


Pinata Day & Cinco de Mayo

IMG_8508-768x1024Did you know tomorrow is National Pinata Day? Well, I’m sure you know Cinco de Mayo is in a few weeks, so talking pinatas seems quite timely. I’ve always loved a pinata, but once I discovered Lula Flora, I found myself looking for ways to incorporate them into a party or a simple Tex-Mex dinner.

Lula Flora creates customized pinatas, which are perfect for place settings, party favors or surprise gifts. They’ve gone beyond the expected shapes, so if you can dream it they can make it.il_570xN.951108598_iol9 il_570xN.1081999309_340s il_570xN.1141572220_a0p8il_570xN.980193198_hr13 il_570xN.1161818046_a5fsil_570xN.925694706_pg8j il_570xN.1205767933_mdzp IMG_8529-e1461274864488-768x1024So if your fiesta needs a little kick, order some custom pinatas and they’ll be the figurative and literal “hit” of your party!
