Since moving to the burbs, I haven't been attending too many swanky New York City soirees. But I couldn't miss the chance to toast Caroline Vazzana's book launch for Making It in Manhattan: The Beginner's Guide to Surviving & Thriving in the World of Fashion. As a writer who has done freelance work for Caroline (below), I have noticed this girl's hustle first hand, and I couldn't be more proud that she has reached such a milestone. I wish there was a book like hers when I was getting my start in this ultra-competitive industry! Yet somehow, scanning the room at the Seville, I felt like I'd made it as well.

A Bachelorette Weekend Fit For the Tropics

This month, we threw a beach-themed bachelorette party for my friend Lei (whose nautical shower was in June). A tropical motif was perfect for a weekend by the shore in Rhode Island. For decorations, we scoured dollar stores for banners, leis, and hula skirts. My favorite element was the DIY beach pale favors (found at Target), which we filled with temporary tattoos, custom sunglasses, flamingo swizzle sticks, straws, and champagne confetti poppers. On Saturday, we spent the day at Stonington Vineyards enjoying delicious wine and the beautiful backdrop of the vineyard, which was perfect to capture a group picture of our matching "I Do Crew" shirts, purchased on Amazon. Congrats to the bride to be and I can’t wait for the big day tomorrow!
