Last month at Foundermade here in New York City I had met a unique startup brand, one I instantly connected with. NEW ViBE offers a collection of high-quality versatile items that are perfectly tailored to a modern lifestyle. The foundation of the label is to bring new functionalities to the contemporary wardrobe that provide the most comfort and sophistication. The major influences come from textile and technological innovations, visual and performing arts, architecture, music, and travel. NEW ViBE is a line of smart wearables that transform and adapt to 21-st century human addiction - multitasking. And this black plisse dress/tunic/shawl/scarf is one of the many designs I fell in love with! Come see how I styled this as a dress layered up for winter and also as a tunic with some jeans.
It's that time of the month again! My roundabout of monthly beauty favorites, the November edition, is now live on the blog! We've got a cannabis candle that provides a natural aphrodisia, the most luxurious lip balm, a body scrub that looks like it's a smoothie, the most-insanely delicious scent of coconutty body wash goodness, a couple of YSL Beauty must-haves, and a new favorite organic serum that will bounce back that elasticity in no time. From your best girl to the biggest beauty junkie guru, these faves are fantastic holiday stocking stuffers, some unisex which is always a plus when it comes to the shopping madness (I mean, two birds, one stone sometimes, am I right? Ha ha!), but they're also great gifts to give to yourself too! Come check it out and continue reading more!
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Yesterday I had the pleasure of experiencing the wonderful downtown restaurant, Le Coq Rico. The original Le Coq Rico (The Bistro of Beautiful Birds) is located on Monmartre's Rue Lepic in Paris. Each Le Coq Rico pays tribute to responsibly raised whole-animal poultry. This restaurant is Chef Antoine Westermann's ode to the local terroir, expressed through the flavors of wild and noble birds. Westermann spent more than a year traveling across the Northeast, particularly through the Hudson Valley and Pennsylvania, to meet farmers and learn their poultry raising philosophies. "Fowl is a world unto itself," noted Westermann. "The flavor and texture change depending on the region, breeder, age, and style of farming." The result of this exchange stands today as Le Coq Rico, NYC. Continue reading to learn more about my time at this attractive, chic bistro.
