HUDSONNYC

Hello from the big apple! It’s been 3 full days since I’ve arrived in New York for all the madness that is #NYFW and maaaan, it’s crazy. From shows, to meetings, to parties, to still trying to work on emails/posts, it’s draining! We are not even half way through and I’m already exhausted! Luckily, this season, we ended up staying close by…ummm, about 3 blocks away from Lincoln Center- at Hudson -  and it definitely made things so much easier!

Hung out at the Sky Terrace to recharge before changing looks to head back to Lincoln Center. It was refreshing to just get away for a split second and enjoy the city view while  taking in some sun rays.

Stay tuned shortly, for what I wore for the first couple of days to #NYFW. Have you guys been following along? Follow me on insta, twitter and my tumblrrr.

Loving my new favorite Rag & Bone jacket that seems to go with just about anything- thinking of replacing my utilitarian jacket for this one!

Playing around with contrasting colors that still complement each other is always something I try to add to my looks- adding the right amount of prints is key too!

Favorite pair of sandals; I actually last all day long running around in them and don’t get tired one bit. The leopard Clare Vivier is perfection too.

Beauty Report.

Make-up, we either love it or hate it. For most of us, we love it. It gives us the opportunity to enhance our beauty/features and it helps give us confidence. For me, I love make-up; it’s always fun trying out new product and building a relationship with the product you “found”.

I pretty much stick to the same make-up everyday; it’s pretty easy and looks rather natural. I’ve tried the super expensive kind and the drugstore type too and everything else in between… definitely takes awhile to “find” the one mascara you love or the “perfect” shade of pink for your blush. Luckily, I’ve finally found all of my favorite make-up must-haves that I’ll be sticking to for a while! Check out my beauty must-haves (showed my top faves in this post only) that I live by religiously.. Hope you try some of them! xo

Gives you full coverage without looking cake. love love love! | Rohto eyedrops (usually the green bottle); I have to put drops in  every morning before I do my makeup; feels so refreshing plus I love having white clear eyes.

From L to R: Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone IlluminatorI apply it before my moisturizer; gives me an even skin tone and helps my skin look glowy | Dior DiorShow mascara in 090; One of the best higher-end mascaras! Makes my lashes longer and thickens them and it’s waterproof! | MAC blush in Prism shade (I also use MAC creme blend brush in Something Special; Has been my go-to blush for years, literally. It’s a perfect shade for my particular skin tone; it’s not too pink and not too brown. Easy to layer with other blushes. | Wet n’ Wild Retractable eyeliner in Black; I love that it’s easy to glide on and it’s not too black; it’s a softer black making it more daytime appropriate |  Laura Mercier Lip Balm in Berry; gives me the perfect amount of shine and color while moisturizing my lips! | Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Bronzer; Love this! I add this before I apply my blush, gives me cheek definition and helps make me look sun kissed ready.

L to R: Marc Jacobs Daisy roll-on perfume; my go-to perfume! This is my 3rd bottle I go through this year! Smells so pretty and fresh! #MJDAISYCHAIN  |  Smashbox highlighter; perfect to brighten up my eyes! | Essie nail polish in ‘Blanc’; white nails are beautiful for summer! All white everything! This ones perfect because you only need two coats and looks solid!

Lastly, I didn’t take a photo of them but I love these products in the slideshow. They’ve made a difference in my make-up routine + face:
Clarins Beauty Flash Balm: I apply it after my moisturizer and right before I apply my makeup. Gives me a radiant look- it brightens and tightens. My fave? It leaves my face feeling so young and moisturized plus it smells sooo good! | Clarins Foaming cleanser; this stuff works! Noticed a difference in my skin within a week! My skin is super sensitive and oily. Leaves my skin feeling ultra soft; a dab goes a long way! love love this | Garnier BB Cream; I haven’t gotten back to wearing foundation since this BB Cream. It’s so light it feels as if you’re not wearing anything! | Maybelline Baby lips in Pink Punch; the perfect pink!

I’ve fallen in love with Barcelona. There’s no denying that it’s a beautiful city, and I’m hoping to one day move there for a few months. But for now, I’ll just reminisce while looking at these photos that were shot last month during my Mango summer experience!

Huge and special thank you to my lovely friends at Mango for making this trip possible! They definitely know how to have fun! Can’t wait to see you guys again..
