Mother's Day Treat

When The Red Door invited me over for a little (or huge) pre-Mother's Day treat I jumped with joy and immediately got an Uber to take me downtown. I visited their new Union Square location which is located on the corner of Park Avenue and 17th Street. The space is giant and, obviously, beautiful - a peaceful oasis in the middle of downtown Manhattan. The downstairs area is comprised of treatment rooms, a salon, and a nail boutique all of which I took advantage of. A 50 minute massage (thank you, Andrew!), a signature Red Door Spa manicure and pedicure and a quick eyebrow shaping session left me feeling incredibly relaxed and overjoyed. It was such a unique and special experience and the absolute perfect way to get me ready to celebrate my very first Mother's Day. 

Gift the gift of Red Door Spa to the special mommas in your life - I promise they will greatly appreciate it!

The White Blazer

I believe every woman should own a white button down, a perfectly fitted pair of skinny jeans, a little black dress AND a fantastic blazer. This particular white blazer is my latest find from Banana Republic's spring collection. Its slightly oversized and longish style is a great departure from the tailored fit of most of the blazers I own. And I absolutely love it! For a day of meetings I threw it on over one of my favorite LBDs and paired it with this great tote. However, I'm sure I'll love it just as much with a good pair of boyfriend jeans and a simple tee for a more casual day.

Spring Beauty

The quiet moments at home that I used to enjoy so frequently are few and far between these days so whenever the chance presents itself I usually jump at the opportunity for an hour or two at home alone. What do I like to do during these hours of quiet? I slab on some yummy face mask and skim the pages of my favorite fashion issues. On this particular Sunday at home I also got to play around with a few of my favorite beauty products for spring, including some of my new By Terry products. These are a few of the products I have discovered and am loving this season:

Aveda Volumizing Mist - I need all the volume this little bottle of spray can give me and that's a whole lot of volume! This volumizing spray is better than any salt spray I have used in the past as it doesn't leave your hair feeling crispy or dry.

By Terry Rouge Terrybly in Flirty Rose - This is by far my favorite lip color these days. It's the perfect combination of nude and pink and leaves your lips feeling soft and moisturized.

By Terry Moisturizing CC Cream - This little tube of goodness evens out your skin tone and leaves your face looking absolutely radiant.

By Terry Terrybly Densiliss Blush - A blush that leaves you sun kissed and with a naturally radiant "blush."
