Light Spring Jackets

I love to layer. Usually it's with a huge sweater or scarf, but when the weather warms up that option is not always feasible. Even with the huge handbag to shove it in. I decided to update my wardrobe a bit for spring by adding some lightweight jackets. An easy addition to make a simple tee & skinny jeans combo look put-together-without over-heating.

Happy Easter | Lush Bunch of Carrots

I have such fond memories of Easter. Even through college, my mom would hide eggs around the backyard and make up gift baskets for my sister and me. If I was still in the same state, I am sure I would find little pastel eggs marked with a 'K' hidden by the pool. Now that I am in New York, Easter has been a new tradition. Preston and I go visit Preston's grandmother in New Jersey. I love spending the afternoon on the deck in between helping make deviled eggs and mashed potatoes. Perhaps, I'll bring some plastic eggs and hid them in the woods.

Nail Art | Spring Gradient

Happy Friday! I am quite looking forward to the weekend and thought I would share my spring/Easter mani. I love a good gradient and have post quite a few over the years. I am loving this super springy colour combo and kind of want to dye some eggs to match...

Review | Liz Earle Skincare

Last Friday, I went to a lovely breakfast at Birchbox to learn more about the brand Liz Earle. My first discovery of the brand was their cult product the Cleanse & Polish, which I received in a Birchbox back in October. It quickly became a favourite and is part of my Evening Skincare Routine. I was so excited to be able to discover more products from the line and share my thoughts with you.

Birchbox | April 2014

Now this is a theme I am identifying with at the moment as evidence by my past few weekly updates. I am all for a rainy day of good reads, movies, naps, and pamper sessions. However, I am not too pleased to have to sludge around the city avoiding 4-inch deep puddles. But as the card says, 'April showers bring May flowers', and I am happy to experience this omen of spring.

The Weekend | Smorgasburg

This weekend was jam-packed with warm weather activities. It felt like summer- I even got my first sunburn of the year. Preston, my friend, Vanessa, and I decided to go to Smorgasburg in Williamsburg. It's a ginormous food market. We wanted to try a bit of everything, which is impossible, but we did manage to hit up quite a few different vendors.
