Evening in Williamsburg

November 2, 2014
I’m a Bushwick baby, but I still love my beloved Williamsburg and Bedford Ave., despite the tourists and streets overridden by well dressed hipsters. It’s still my little Manhattan escape. It’s gritty charm brings out the best of me. As does the food and boutiques and all the good places to catch a beer at. The evening is my favorite time of day to walk around this neighborhood. The vibe is so chill and relaxing. The streets are lit up from the light bouncing off the water. Everything sparkle a little more than it does during the day. Every corner has hidden nooks that just might become your next main go-to spot. On the weekend, Williamsburg thrives just like Manhattan. But a Thursday early evening? It’s just the right amount of peaceful.

Storm King

October 25, 2014
Had a super lovely visit to Storm King in upstate New York a few weeks ago with some friends on one of fall’s hotter days. Storm King is pretty magical. This open-air museum is made up of acres of land and space speckled with sculptures throughout, featuring a widespread list of artists. Walk, take a tram or bike the grounds to come across your favorites pieces of art. No two pieces are the same, as well. What’s really special about Storm King is that the expanse of hills covered with grass and tall trees may look natural, but was actually carefully molded to form the perfect setting for each work of art. So basically, the entire museum is a piece of art in itself. Amazing! Hope to go back again soon and explore other parts of the grounds that we didn’t get the chance to see last time.

Work Space

October 23, 2014
A peek at my little work space nook in my bedroom. I’ve been creating collages since elementary school, and the craft has stuck with me ever since. Although a far cry from the one’s I’ve made before featuring at least 5 cutouts of Josh Hartnett’s beautiful face on the front and back of my school binders, these new ones still do the trick of keeping me inspired every single day. Images that build dreams. Plus a crystal geode to keep the good energy flowing. Fresh flowers for a sweet scent. Lots of natural light to keep me calm and focused on the work I have to get done in front of me. I’m looking at images for a good portion of the day, so my work area has to be light and bright so every detail can be considered. My desk is currently covered with watercolor paints and fabric samples. I’m always working on something different, and a lot of times I like to get my hands dirty. With some folksy tunes or rock and roll playing in the background, I’m totally in my zen zone.

Vaseline Intensive Care | Cure For Winter Skin

October 21, 2014

Winter is such a burden on our skin, and especially on someone’s as sensitive as mine, which is why I’m getting a head start on prepping my skin for the polar months ahead of us. I grew up with my mother preaching me the positive effects of moisturizing in the winter time, if not all the time! And Vaseline® was always in the bathroom cabinet in our household. It still is! And it still works its magic just as well as it did back in the day, but actually even better thanks to Vaseline® Intensive CareTM – a range of lotions that go beyond basic moisturization to deeply moisturize to heal dry skin. The new line is made up of a very special blend of humectants (to draw water into the skin), and healing micro-droplets of Vaseline® Jelly (to lock moisture in). Like original Vaseline® Jelly, these micro-droplets are highly refined, and 100% pure. Together, the humectants and Vaseline® Jelly micro-droplets in the lotions work to deliver a range of moisturization needs. I personally prefer the Intensive CareTM Advanced Repair Fragrance Free because I can actually feel it working as soon as I apply it, and my skin feels soft and supple for a long time afterwards. And I go for Fragrance Free because I can make sure that irritation won’t be a problem at all.
Winter is already rough. We don’t need anything else to make it any rougher.  Vaseline® Intensive CareTM will make sure that isn’t a problem. That and a hot cup of cocoa, of course!
