After all of my meetings in Paris, my sister and I enjoyed a high-tea at the first Laduree shop in Paris. It was unreal. Everything from the food description to the names of the teas had my heart jumping of joy. I am a huge girly girl and it was a true Blair Waldorf moment from “Gossip Girl”.Laduree is a girly-girls dream come true. When you walk into the boutique, the aroma of macarons lingers in
If you have not seen how amazing the dessert from Pierre Herme is, you have been missing out. While visiting the city of lights, I made it a priority to visit Pierre Herme and try their pastries and macarons. The pastries and fine cakes are TO DIE FOR but I cannot say the same for macarons.

I must be dreaming, this really cannot be happening right now. These were the words I told myself when I woke up on Day 5 of Paris Fashion Week SS16. I already had planned on what to wear (a beautiful J.W. Anderson dress, a pair of Zara booties with a fur clutch) and only had to relive my dream. I hung my outfit in my apartment’s closet and after finishing my hair and makeup, I
Traveling with friends is always a good idea. But when you travel with family, especially a sister, the experience is greater. My sister Ela has been so supportive of my blog since day one. She even flew out to Paris with me to be my photographer and help me while I travel during Paris Fashion Week. When I was not working, we sisters were doing all the fun tours. Did I mention solo? We Googled
I am so thrilled to announce my collaboration with Nordstrom.com. Before flying to Paris, I had a list of clothing items that I needed for Paris Fashion Week. I looked and looked for the perfect dress and when I laid my eyes on this Needle and Thread dress I knew it was “the one”. I tried it on inside the fitting room and it was everything I expected it to be, fitted (a little snug
After a long day in Paris, it was time for some cocktails. My sister and I were in a rush to escape the rain so we were in search for a restaurant and discovered great reviews on the Minipalais using Yelp.com. The restaurant is located in one of the greatest spots in Paris. Just across the street from the Grand Palais. At the Minipalais you will find great food, wine and a warm ambience. Caution:
The day is finally here. I’m really excited to share my experience and collaboration with Shein. I have been a loyal customer with Shein since I began blogging four years ago and I am so thrilled that I am now an ambassador for their brand. While I was in Paris, I had a few meetings that I attended and when I did not meet with brands or showrooms, I got to shoot this look for Shein.
