Sephora Holiday Favorites 2017

Sephora is one of my go-to spots for beauty gift-giving essentials. Here's a look at some of my holiday favorites from the Sephora Collection.

1) Sephora Collection Winter Wonderland Advent Calendar ($45) – Every year, Sephora comes up with a new advent calendar with 24 surprises to help you countdown to Christmas. The mini gifts are great for travel, the office or your purse. The surprises include everything from a lip stain or eyeliner to nail polish.

2) Sephora Collection Paint the Town Nude Chubby Set ($29) – This set of ten mini lip pencils in a creamy satin finish works for every skin tone. You can gift the entire set, or break it up for some stocking stuffers while keeping a few lip pencils for yourself!

3) Sephora Collection Dark Rainbow Dual Boar Brush ($15) – I use these mini boar brushes for travel and previously had a gold one. I love the look of this new limited edition one with oil slick coating. 

4) Sephora Collection Dark Rainbow Compact Mirror ($12) – This is one compact you won't want to lose, yet everyone will want to borrow! The compact is absolutely gorgeous, encrusted with colored and gunmetal stones. It's the perfect gift for a friend that loves a little glam and sparkle.

T-Mobile 2017 Holiday Tech Gifts

It's officially the holiday shopping season! T-Mobile has holiday deals on fun, fashionable tech accessories to gift to friends and family (and even yourself)! One of the best deals is on the mophie PowerStation Mini with a speckled print, on sale for $17.99 (originally $29.99)! 

Check out these must-have iphone cases, for some stylish stocking stuffers. The cases below are for the iPhone 7/8 Plus but T-Mobile also has cases available for the iPhone 7/8, iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. I'm currently using the Case-Mate Waterfall case in Rose Gold, and so far it has been a conversation piece, and is fun to shake up, with its snow globe effect. It also has a shock absorbing bumper, anti-scratch technology and metallic buttons. For more deals and T-Mobile exclusives go to

Housing Works Fashion for Action 2017

On Thursday, November 16th, I attended the Housing Works Fashion for Action benefit and VIP hour, at the Housing Works flagship shop in Chelsea. Guests sipped cocktails and shopped nearly $2 million in donated merchandise, all marked 50-70% off retail. 

Co-chairs included Patricia Field, Eric Javits, Alex Olson and Todd Snyder, with hosts Mickey Boardman and Bevy Smith. Closet Curators included Preston Konrad, Natalie Kates, Iskra Lawrence, Mia Moretti, Alex Olson, Luanna Perex-Garreaud, Todd Snyder and Mara Hoffman. 

There was an incredible amount of brands and deals, including Opening Ceremony, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Rachel Zoe and United Nude, with a lot of price points spotted at $35, $65 and $125. Shopping was arranged by designer, making it easier to find your favorite brands, and the Housing Works staff was on hand and extremely helpful. I was excited to have gotten a Golden Goose Deluxe Brand orange silk top for $35 and Design Lab sequin leggings for $15! For making any purchase, shoppers also received a free aerie beanie hat with removable pom. 

As with the start of any sale, it's always better to get there early to get the best selection. By the time I got there, a half hour after the VIP hour had started, the shopping party was well in full swing, and it got more and more crowded within the hour. This was my first Fashion for Action event I have attended and I definitely can't wait for the next one!

Gilt Sample Sale Recap & Shopping Haul

Last Friday, November 10th, I attended the VIP session of the Gilt Sample Sale at The Altman Building in NYC. It's been well over a year since I've attended this sale - the last time I went was April 2016. One thing is for sure - I've never left this sale empty handed. The best deals and finds are happen when you have first pick and unfortunately I made it to the sale a half hour late. I also was shocked to learn that everything at the sale was an additional 50% off the ticketed price! They were practically giving away items! 

Check out my shopping haul below. I really wish I had found a pair of shoes in my size. I saw a pair of Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots that would have been $120 (I think the MSRP was $695). There was also a pair of Isabel Marant Rowi ankle boots on sale for $150 (MSRP $790). I'm hoping they do the 50% off sale at the next Gilt NYC sale (or even Brooklyn - I would trek over there for that!). I heard by Sunday, everything was 60% off the ticketed price!
