A boat ride in Central Park

September 8, 2016

lex came to visit NYC a week back! And I loved getting to experience New York like a tourist. We visited museums, tried many of the staple NYC restaurants I still had not tried, wandered neighbourhoods and so much more. We of course had to visit Central park, and decided to rent boats in the Central park lake. It was such a fun and romantic way to discover the central park and of course see the beautiful skyline. Would recommend anyone, tourist or Newyorker to give it a try!

Holiday Gift Guide: For him

November 30, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-29 at 19.04.12

Sometimes getting your boyfriend the perfect gift can be so hard, especially when he has everything. I rounded up some of the things I think make for perfect gifts for any boyfriend. I gave Alex this Daniel Wellington watch for Christmas a few years back and he has worn it everyday since, a great wardrobe staple and the perfect gift for any guy who wants a simple yet stylish watch. The Bose noise-cancelling headphones make for the best gift for anyone who travels a lot, that annoying sound on flights? It literally cancels it out completely. So if your boyfriend travels a lot, or simply want a great pair of headphones this might be the perfect gift for him. A mini-ipad can be super practical, I sometimes use mine for school work it’s perfect for whenever you do not want to carry around a heavy laptop!

Lips Bracelet

The Lips Chain Wrapped Cuff Bracelet is perfect for the trendsetter in your life. Whether it’s your fashion forward sister, niece, or best friend, this would look great with so many different outfits. At just $68 this little bracelet featuring DVF’s signature lips logo, as seen on the runways, according to, is as affordable as it is adorable.


The backpack page from is full of gorgeous ideas to give this year, and the above slouchy leather bucket-shaped Tory Burch bag is no exception. The brown Brody bag is a useful piece to add to her wardrobe, especially if she’s still a student or always on the go. The drawstring top is concealed by a logo-studded magnetic flap and a side zip allows for more convenient access to the interior. For $495 this backpack is well worth the investment.


The Marilyn two-tone wool-blend wrap coat from DVF would make a thoughtful gift for the woman who enjoys comfort and style. She’ll definitely stay toasty all winter long, and with featuring copious amounts of warm weather clothing on the magazine’s own holiday gift guide, this should be a huge hit. This coat retails for $598.


A beautiful pair of warm and fuzzy gloves is always a great practical gift idea, and these stylish gray embellished wool and cashmere blend gloves are perfect for reminding her just how much you care every time she wears them. What’s even cooler is that she can still stay connected socially thanks to the embroidered thumb and forefinger cleverly allowing her to use touch screen devices. Buy these for $148. 


These gold multi-strand earrings are said to channel the sense of all-American glamour that is DVF. The gunmetal and gold bead and chain tassels will dangle gracefully above her shoulders and would look great with upswept hair. These are both practical and trendy, and would make a great gift for any woman who enjoys a little extra allure in her life—at $98 don’t hesitate to grab a pair.

Lash Genie Austin: Eye Lash Extensions

October 28, 2015


Hi Guys!

As you guys might know I am a bit obsessed with eyelashes, eyelash extensions that is. Over the years I developed an allergic reaction to mascara which meant that I had to stop wearing eye make-up, including mascara all together. My eyelids would swell up instantly, turn red and sore for months at a time. Desperately trying to find an alternative to makeup I found eye lash extensions. And for any of you out there with allergies to eye makeup or sensitive eyes this is perfect for you!

Ever since I have been on the lookout for the best places to get your lashes done, after some research online I decided on Lash Genie and I am so happy I did! The result is so natural and the extensions blend seamlessly into my natural lashes, the result looks absolutely stunning! As I mentioned before I have tried several places and never been this happy with my results! If you are a first timer to the whole lash extensions scene or have had them done in the past, you should check out Lash Genie
