Beach Body Prep #SimplySmooth

Even though it took it’s sweet time arriving, Summer is officially in full swing and the weather in NYC has been gorgeous!  Our weekends have been packed so I have not made it to the beach just yet but we are heading there next weekend for a little mini-break.  I spent some time this past weekend prepping for it and I figured I would share the process with you guys.   Continue reading



Hey Babes!  I am back in NYC and settling in to my regular routine after last week’s vacation.  (I was out in Long Island with Taylor hanging with our besties and soaking up some end of Summer fun.)  We really squeezed every last drop out of August with rounds of mini-golf, lounging at the pool, shopping, dinners outside and trips to the beach.  Here are some of the highlights from Instagram.

 I also got a chance to visit my Mom in the hospital a few times.  She is doing much better and even though she has a long road ahead of her our relationship is mending itself and it has been wonderful spending time with her.

Another highlight from my trip was having my friend put eyelash extensions on for me (she does it professionally).  Let me just tell you – they are amazing!  I was always reluctant to have them done in the past because my eyes are so dry from wearing contacts and staring at a computer all day.  This trip, after seeing so many of her clients looking fabulous, I decided to bite the bullet and I am so glad I did.  My eyes don’t feel any more dry and I cant even tell I am wearing them.  The change is truly remarkable!

 In the picture above the only difference is my lashes.  I am not wearing any other additional makeup.  Crazy, right?  I am pretty much obsessed with them.  Now I can wake up, throw on a bit of gloss and foundation and I am ready to start my day.  These will really come in handy next week when Taylor goes back to school and my mornings get a lot more hectic.  Have any of you ever had eyelash extensions?  Do you have questions?  If you do, please leave them for me in the comments and I will email you.  I love to talk beauty!
