What does it take to accomplish a goal? Often, we will wait to do something because we don’t feel like we have enough confidence to do it. We put it off and wait for the right moment. I am guilty of this; I let a work bully tear me down for a year and a half while I tried to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. I tried so many different things during this time, such as consulting while blogging. I didn’t know what I wanted to do, and my confidence was declining with each day…

Just like that 2016 is behind us and 2017 is in front of us. I love to take this time of the year to reflect back on all that I’ve learned and accomplished. There is something so inspiring about taking that pause to be completely present. 2016 was the year of creating my own independence and re-gaining my confidence. As I was going through my photos month by month, I couldn’t believe how much I did in just one year: Launched Style Collective in February 2016 and have been able to be apart of the most incredible movement in the female…

Hey Lovely! So at the beginning of September (before NYFW) I went to Montreal for a few days with the hubby in celebration of his birthday. I tried REALLY hard to disconnect from work, but with NYFW happening literally the day after I returned from Canada, it was really hard to do so. Lesson learned: don’t vacation on the days leading up to NYFW! But regardless of endless emails and messages, I still had a fabulous time with Mike. We packed SO much stuff into just 3 short days and I’m excited to share our experience and photos with our…

Hi Lovelies! Today marks the final day of my NYFW recap with my Style Collective sisters, which kind of makes me sad! I love that I’ve been able to share this amazing week with my friends, family and other SC sisters. Stay tuned for next week’s post on SC recapping our fabulous brunch with 30+ ladies! On to the Final Day of NYFW: Monday was a crazy day. Anna and I ventured to Bagel Maven for some fabulous NYC bagels. So much yum!! Then we headed to Charming Charlie’s flagship store for a little business meeting and were surprised with…

Hi Lovelies! Today is the third day of my NYFW recap with my Style Collective sisters and we took the day to enjoy the gorgeous weather after a cold front came through, thank god! The weather went from humid 90’s to milk 70’s, so we walked all around the city all day before heading to a presentation later that night. Today’s recap is more of a visual post: photos of Laduree, Central Park, Bergdorf’s on 5th Ave and my #ootd featuring my Box of Style cape (full recap here). You can also watch the video of the Cristina Ruales presentation that we went to that…

Hi Lovelies! Last week I was in New York with my Style Collective sisters for NYFW and this whole week I am sharing what I did daily with my SC sisters! Day 2 was SO much fun because we started the day with a 30 person brunch that I organized. I’m actually going to dedicate an entire post to the brunch over on the SC Blog next week – so stay tuned for that. 😉 After brunch, we went to the ShopStyle Social House over at the glass houses. This was my FAVORITE event that we went to during fashion week. ShopStyle had…
