WE LOVE BUVETTE...

IF YOU'RE A NYC LOCAL, I'M SURE YOU'VE HEARD OF THIS NEIGHBORHOOD HOTSPOT. IF YOU HAVEN'T- YOU NOW KNOW WHERE YOUR WEEKEND'S BRUNCH PLANS WILL BE! FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE TO TRAVEL TO NYC, THIS FRENCH EATERY IS A MUST WHEN YOU DO!! IT'S PART RESTAURANT, PART BAR, PART CAFE, SO NO MATTER WHAT YOUR DINING NEEDS ARE, YOU'LL BE TAKEN CARE OF! 
IT TAKES JUST ONE BITE OF YOUR DISH TO SEE EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. BETWEEN SHANNON AND I WE ORDERED THE BELGIAN WAFFLE, (WHICH CAME PERFECTLY BROWNED AND TOPPED WITH FRESH BERRIES), CR'Q MONSIEUR AND CR'Q MADAME. ALL THREE DISHES WERE MELT IN YOUR MOUTH- OMG THIS IS LIVING! WORTHY. WE LOVED IT SO MUCH, WE RETURNED TWO DAYS LATER FOR ROUND TWO! THIS COZY, WEST VILLAGE GEM HAS CHARACTER FOR DAYS AND IS ENTIRELY WORTHY OF YOUR PRECIOUS WEEKEND TIME. 

*SPECIAL NOTE: BE PREPARED FOR AN INTIMATE DINING EXPERIENCE, AS THERE'S NOT MUCH ELBOW ROOM! 









 BUVETTE IS LOCATED IN WEST VILLAGE ON 42 WEST STREET. OPEN DAILY SO YOU NEVER HAVE TO MISS OUT! WEEKDAYS FROM 8 AM- 2AM, WEEKENDS FROM 9 AM- 2 AM.

TWO WORLDS COLLIDE...

YES, THE RUMORS ARE TRUE! TOPSHOP IS IN FACT COMING TO NORDSTROM! THIS FASHION COLLABORATION MAKES ME EXTREMELY HAPPY, AS I CONSIDER BOTH STORES TO BE FAVORITES OF MINE! NORDSTROM AT FASHION PLACE WAS KIND ENOUGH TO INVITE A FEW OF US TO COME PREVIEW AND PURCHASE OUR FAVORITES FROM THE FIRST COLLECTION. WHAT COUGHT MY EYE FIRST?! THE SHOES!! AHH THEY HAD SO MANY WONDERFUL PAIRS TO CHOOSE FROM! I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU GUYS WHICH ONES I CHOSE! AS IF THIS WASN'T ENOUGH GREAT NEWS FOR TODAY, I HAVE MORE. NOT ONLY WILL YOU FIND PATTERNS AND STYLES THAT ARE EXCLUSIVE TO NORSTROM, BUT BRAND NEW TOPSHOP MERCHANDISE WILL BE DELIVERED TO NORDSTROM ON A WEEKLY BASIS! THATS RIGHT- WEEKLY!! SO BE SURE TO CONTINUALLY CHECK BACK AND STAY IN TOUCH WITH THE LATEST!

LIFE.

HELLO BEAUTIES! IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE I LAST POSTED, BUT NOT WITHOUT GOOD REASON! THE SALON HAS BEEN WONDERFULLY BUSY, LOGGING 10-12 HOUR DAYS BEAUTIFYING MY CLIENTS WHO ARE ALL WANTING TO GET THEIR HAIR FRESHENED UP FOR SPRING! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT! (CHECK OUT SOME OF MY RECENT WORK ON INSTAGRAM @BORNTODYEHAIR). 
IF I'M NOT WORKING, MY DAYS OUTSIDE OF THE SALON HAVE BEEN SPENT 1 OF THESE 3 PLACES; WITH MY LITTLE SISTER AND BRAND NEW BABY NEICE, BENTLEY (NO TIME TO WRITE BLOG POSTS WHEN YOU HAVE A SWEET LITTLE BABY IN YOUR HANDS)! THE GROCERY STORE- SHOPPING AND PREPPING MY MEALS FOR THE WEEK (FINALLY KICKED THE BAD HABIT OF EATING OUT FOR EVERY SINGLE MEAL), OR ENGAGING IN SOME TYPE OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. I'M BACK TO WORKING OUT WITH MY TRAINER AT LEAST TWO TO THREE TIMES A WEEK, AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BE TRAINING AGAIN! CASEY AND I DESPERATELY NEEDED A MOVIE/ KETTLE CORN INTERVENTION AFTER THE PREVIOUS WINTER MONTHS, SO RECENTLY WE'VE GOTTEN REALLY INTO HIKING! IT'S SUCH A HEALTHY ACTIVITY WE CAN DO TOGETHER AND WE FEEL SO MUCH BETTER AFTERWARDS! SPRING IS HERE AND THIS TIME OF YEAR ALWAYS MOTIVATES ME TO GET MY SHIT TOGETHER AND BACK ON TRACK! I LOVE IT!!!
