Kate Upton for Bobbi Brown Make-Up!

I stumbled upon this interview with Bobbi Brown and Kate Upton. I really love both of these women. I have all of Bobbi's books and admire her business savvy skills and confidence. She also seems very close to her husband and children. Although Kate Upton is often snarked on, I think she comes across as very sweet and genuine. Not too mention, having a bigger chest myself I can totally relate to the poor girl. It ain't always fun! Watch this interview for some great beauty tips.

Weekend Recap

My parents and I went back and forth deciding whether I should come down for Easter, or they should come up here since I had to be home the next weekend for a wedding anyways. We decided for them to come up here, and had a great time enjoying the awesome weather and visiting family in New Jersey.

We started off Saturday by walking around SoHo and having brunch at Minetta Tavern. Minetta Tavern is famous for their Minetta burger which both A and my Dad devoured. The vibe was very cool and old school. It seemed like you stepped in a brunch spot from MadMen.

Next, we decided to walk along the Brooklyn Bridge. We stopped in the Nespresso store for some more pods and discovered the cutest card shop along the way. 

We also made a pit stop in the Mondrian SoHo so I could show my parents one of the prettiest brunch spots in NYC, Isola. 

By the time we got to the Brooklyn Bridge my feet were killing me, and I was not a happy camper. I definitely paused for a break or two along the way. I also learned I really need comfortable shoes. 

After our walk I was more than ready to head to my favorite hidden pizza place Razza. Their sausage covered pizza is divine! 

We spent Easter Sunday with my Aunt, Uncle and cousin on my Dad's side in NJ. Growing up we used to come up to have Easter with them every year but then college and my cousin's soccer practices got in the way! After a few years of Easter at home with my Mom's family (which was always wonderful!), it was nice to relive this tradition.  My uncle is an amazing cook and made the most incredible stuffed clams. I could have had 10!

Daddy Daughter shot! It was so sunny outside even Lilly the chihuahua was squinting!

It was a wonderful weekend, and I can't wait to go home next weekend for my cousin's wedding!

Weekend Happenings

It was 70 degrees in NYC this weekend, and I could not have been happier! Even though we were out and about all weekend, I barely snapped any pictures because I was having a such a great time enjoying the weather and scenery. We started Saturday by meeting some friends for brunch at a new restaurant on the Upper East Side called Five Mile Stone. I could not recommend it more!  We split the burger and duck pastrami sliders which were incredible!

Afterwards, A and I walked off our meal by walking all the way down Lex towards Bloomingdales. We stopped in one of my favorite home stores, William-Wayne, Co. I love all their classic accents and you can snag some good deals on picture frames.

I finally found a dress for an upcoming wedding at Bloomingdales. I love the color and lightweight fabric for Spring. 


On Sunday, we headed to Greenwich, CT to  A's aunt's home for an early Passover. We had a great time hanging out with his family and enjoying some delicious matzo ball soup and chocolate covered strawberries. My allergies are in full swing, however, and I'm trying my best to Benadrlyize myself through this week!
