Monster Mash

Happy Halloween everyone! It's been a long, long day today. Been busy bees working on the house, greeting Trick or Treaters, and then a full afternoon in Rockville Center. That town really goes all out for Halloween—people have gone nuts decorating their houses (some have even made their house into a haunted house)! I got a good scare tonight when, what I thought was a scarecrow, came chasing me down the street. And at one point I think there must have been at least 200 kids running around on the street. What an amazing Halloween spirit they had going there! (It almost felt like we were in that movie Hocus Pocus—a halloween favorite.)

Fall Foliage

I had planned on having a super productive day today, but I ended up doing almost nothing at all. No painting, no cleaning, not laundry. Nothing. I guess it's good to have those lazy days once in a while.

It was just such a beautiful day on Long Island—way too nice to do house work. Instead we took a long hike in Caumsett park. I think thats's one of my favorite places to go, especially in the fall and the leaves are changing color.

A little busy tonight getting ready for Halloween tomorrow. Campbell's costume is all set, but no candy purchased yet. Hopefully the Trick or Treaters don't come to early =)

Need Supply Co.

Just found this place Need Supply Co—they have tons of cute stuff for not that much money. This open cardigan and tunic are great basics for fall.

Dream Sweater

Jill Stuart "Poppy" Sweater $740.

Love Always Cuffs

These cuffs from Phillips Frankel are so pretty! The all sterling silver version starts at $250.00, and the ones in 14K GOld with diamonds will cost you $3000.00.

Bargain Hunter

Stopped by Gracious Homes Chelsea location yesterday for their final days of clearance. They are closing up that location (no wonder—everything was so overpriced!) Well, bad news for them, meant good news for me.

It was a total war zone in there, but I scored a hand embroidered crib duvet cover for $18.00 (originally $190.00) and a beautiful italian twin duvet cover for $41.00 (originally $415.00). I love a getting a bargain. Of course, Campbell is not going to be able to use a twin duvet for a while, but who can resist four hundred dollar sheets for forty bucks...they are soft like silk after all =)

Witchy Woman

Managed to squeeze in a midnight "home" mani at the dining room table last night. Ghoulish dark purple polish with pink dots. Prefect for Trick or Treating with Campbell and the cousins on Sunday.

And I forgot to show my new bracelet that Rich got my for Halloween. (We are both obsessed with skull-and-cross bones). They make these themselves at Liboutti Jewlers in Huntington. I love handmade quirky stuff.

Baby Sorceress

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...

Cute Cargos

Skinny Cargo pants from Chelsea & Violet, $118.00 at

What I'm Wearing

Denim jacketGap NecklaceH&M CardiganAnn Taylor Loft DressBB Dakota TightsSpanx (they make the best tights ever)

I've been a little bit of a slacker lately and haven't taken any photos (besides of Campbell). But I have finally made some time for self-pampering. New highlights on Saturday—I really need it— and a facial/microdermabrasion in two weeks. I'm going to feel brand new after this =)

Natural Leather

I have always loved natural undyed leather, especially the kind that gets better and better looking the more you wear it (you know, like your grandpa's old belt or an well-used saddle.) I actually can't believe this bag from TopShop is only $100.00—it is real leather after all. I think it's so cute—both masculine and feminine at the same time.

New York, New York. So nice They Named It Twice

Passed by this pretty light display in the new Beatrice building on 6th avenue and 29th street on my way home tonight.

The Only Girl in the World

I've had this song on repeat all afternoon.

Hello. Good Afternoon.

Happy baby.

I just love this onesie from Danish kids clothing designer Molo—all their stuff just put me in such a great mood. Completely crazy quirky fabrics. I got this one from my step-sister back in Sweden, but online retailer Asos have some of their stuff available for purchasing in the US.

Favorites: Michael Kors Gloves

On days like this you can barely believe that winter November is just a few days away. Despite the 72F weather, I'm prepping for chilly days ahead. I've been really impressed with all things Michael Kors lately. Super classy. Just received a pair of wrist warmers that I got for my niece that I kind of wanted to keep for myself, but they have tons of really cute gloves and wrist warmers for the winter. Here are a few of my favorite things.

Fit for a Princess

This dress would make me feel really pretty without really trying.

Pretty Things in Small Packages

BCBG has the cutest little evening bags (I just saw two that would go with just about every outfit I own.) And they are not that expensive either—$108.00 for the sequined one and $58.00 for the mesh one.

Now off to Long Island! G'nite.

One Hot Mama!

JLo is just looking better and better. Absolutely amazing.

The new Gucci ad campaign featuring her and her super cute twins.

Sleeping Beauty

I wish my sleep were as relaxing and soothing as this.

Something Pretty for my Walls

I absolutely love maps. It always makes me dream of all the exotic places I want to visit (next big trip just have to be Buenos Aires, or I'll just die). Maybe that's why I love airports too...everyone's on the go heading somewhere far away...the energy is just intoxicating.

Well, I just checked out this site called and they have the most amazing art. I particularly fell in love with this graphic map of New York from Stamen Design. I just have to have it.

Cutie Pie

Quick Thursday night baby check in. This is how much fun you can have in a bouncy swing. Amazing isn't it!? Hours and hours of entertainment—both for Campbell and I. She's playing and I'm watching. Once she starts bouncing, she just goes on and on!

So Pretty

I wanna go to my Christmas party looking like this. Isn't this dress just beautiful! And just sparkly enough to be festive and fun.

Make it Work!

This little cut-out of Tim Gunn just magically appeared on my computer screen at work today (I think I know who put it there). This is just what I needed after a few rough days at work =)

Looking Like Twins

My sis-in-law wore such a cute sweater for family dinner on Sunday. Slightly oversized, but still girly. Perfect with my black skinny jeans. I think I just have to get it. We already accidentally bought identical dresses last month, now we will have identical sweaters too =) I
