Dough

•••
Now, I don’t know if it’s just me, but where I grew up we had good donuts. Like, really good donuts. And there were several stores that all had different types — cake donuts, and yeast donuts, and everything in between. I’m all about it, and it’s one of my favorite things about visiting home. There’s just something about a good donut, and Dough in Flatiron/B[...]

202 London

•••
Just off Portobello Road, there are few places I’ve ever been that are like 202, as it combines fashion, retail, and modern dining, in a spacious, inspiring space. If Ab Fab were done up by hipsters, this might be the result. I was exploring the Notting Hill neighborhood with my dear friend Laura, a very chic London native, and this was one of her secret spo[...]

Salvation Taco

•••
Murray Hill isn’t known for it’s culinary offerings, but it’s still close enough to my apartment that I'm always looking for the next hidden gem. My most recent discovery was Salvation Taco, located in the lobby of the Pod 39 Hotel.Created by the people behind The Spotted Pig, one of New York’s storied West Village eateries, the atmosphere is decidedly delig[...]

Kickstarter: Kabaccha Shoes

•••
As you can tell from my style posts, while my clothes stay pretty simple I do have a thing for loud footwear. Bright colors and cool details are what I look for when I'm picking out new kicks, which is why I was so excited about this new Kickstarter for Kabaccha Shoes. And not only are these shoes Made in Italy, designed to be comfortable AND stylish, but th[...]

Pulled Duck Sandwiches at Ma Poule (Torvehallerne Market)

•••
Sometimes it’s the quick and easy eats that are my favorites; on my recent trip to Copehagen a friendly stranger told us we had to find the pulled duck sandwiches at Torvehallerne Market. I'm sorry, did you say pulled duck? I want to go to there. I thought, unable to contain my enthusiasm. So my friend and I found the market, which wasn't too far from the[...]

American Crew Liquid Wax

•••
I’ll admit this one didn’t really seem of interest to me — I’ve tried the styling glues and waxes before, and let’s just say I always got the “fresh from the car wash” look. The new American Crew Liquid Wax, however, gave me a totally different look, and I have to admit I’m pretty into it. Less “wet” and more “matte,” with just enough hold to keep me looking[...]

Tu-lu's Bakery

•••
Responding to the growing demand and desire for high-quality gluten free products, Tu-Lu's Bakery puts the heart back into gluten-free bakery. Dedicated to delivering baked goods that are both delicious and beautiful, special attention is paid to the texture and moistness of their goodies. I met with one of the founders when I stopped by and I was up fron[...]

Julia of "Fashion Pulse Daily"

•••
I've known Julia DiNardo of FashionPulseDaily.com for about as long as I've been in New York, and she's always been a great positive energy. We've worked together on a few projects, and it's always a pleasure catching up. Recently we met in between shows at Lincoln Center for some photos, and I thought I'd share a few.

Osis+ Dust It

•••
Looking for a boost of volume and a touch of texture? Osis+ Dust It should be your product of choice. This is great for all hair lengths -- I've used it when I had longer bangs, and I also use now and think it's even better with my shorter hair. This kind of product is one of the fashion week secrets backstage — it can help transform greasy, limp, lifeles[...]
