My Simple Human Semi-Round Sensor Can

I am so excited to partner with simplehuman because I love all of their products! I recently decided that I wanted to upgrade my old simplehuman Step Can, and I found the perfect replacement with their new Semi-Round Sensor Can! It’s the perfect size for my kitchen, and I am obsessed with the chic rose gold color!

The new simplehuman Semi-Round Sensor Can adapts to all my tasks! The sensor is so sensitive that when I’m using it, it doesn’t close unexpectedly – unlike other automatic trash cans, this one is not on a timer, so it won’t close on you while you’re still using it! The Sensor Can also has an innovative ‘liner pocket’ in the back that stores and dispenses the liners for a faster change and hides the edges of the trash can, so it always looks sleek. Not only does this trash can not distract from my home’s décor, it enhances it!

I mean, how gorgeous is this!?

I am especially obsessed with the motion sensor as the infrared fields can sense the area above and in front of the can so it opens automatically with the wave of your hand! It makes life so much easier - I know it might sound silly, but this is really one of those “once you try it, you’ll never want to go back” situations! The planetary gear system transfers speed for smooth and consistent lid operation and its 50% quieter than other brands!

They’ve thought of everything! So, when are you upgrading?

My Uniqlo Beauty Relax Wireless Bra!

In sponsorship with Uniqlo, all opinions are my own!

Uniqlo has been one of my favorite brands for perfect basics for years. I could not have survived the New York winters without their amazing HEATTECH products!! That’s why when I found out they were launching a new intimates collection, I was super excited! I usually hate wearing bras because they just are not comfortable! But after trying out the new Uniqlo Beauty Relax Wireless Bra I am a convert!  It’s so comfortable that I even forget to take it off sometimes! And, the best part about this bra is the price – it’s only $19.90, so not only is it everything you want and need the price is TOO good!!

The Beauty Relax Wireless Bra has AIRism fabric for a smooth, dry feel and a gentle fit that shapes your bustline.

The Beauty Relax Wireless Bra has some amazingly well thought out features that give you everything you’re looking for in a wireless bra.

  • It securely shapes and supports,
  • Has ultrasonic bonding which creates flattering seams,
  • Comes with removable molded cups for a sleek fit, and
  • Can be worn as a matching set with Uniqlo’s AIRism seamless briefs!

Also, Uniqlo’s unique AIRism material is packed with more features that gives it a smooth feel and is quick-drying, for lasting year-round comfort.  The bra and brief set is a great PJ alternative on hot nights!

The new Beauty Relax Bra is perfect for me because its wireless, limitless, and so comfortable! The fact that this bra is wireless is my favorite part because that’s the number one reason I don’t like to wear bras – the underwire is awful and make it so uncomfortable throughout the day! This particular bra is my favorite one, but loving all the other styles Uniqlo introduced in their new intimates line. You can decide for yourself which is the best fit for you personally!

Another of my favorites is the Beauty Light Wireless Bra! This bra is a more traditional shape and style, but the seamless design ensures that it will be invisible under anything you wear, while the urethane sheeting at the bottom of the cups provides just the right amount of support. I love how the seamless bonded construction prevents it from cutting into your back and underarms, which happens with so many other bras!

The new Uniqlo Beauty Relax Wireless Bra gives me comfort without sacrificing my style! When I am styling my looks for the day I always want to make sure that my undergarments make me feel as good as my outfits do! So I loved wearing my new Uniqlo Beauty Relax Wireless Bra with my new denim jumpsuit! Look and feel even better!! You need one now!

Papyrus at NYFW: The Shows Spring 2018!

Papyrus and NYFW: The Shows are the match made in heaven and its that time again when they bring all the magic to NYFW! At this point, I think it wouldn’t feel like fashion week without Papyrus! As they enter the 12th season as the official greeting card sponsor of NYFW: The Shows- they brought even more of an experience this season to fashion week!

Papyrus exudes beauty, detail, self-expression, and love in everything they are do! This season their presence at fashion week was a fully-immersive experience with the return of the Café by Papyrus, fun activities, and collaborations with world-renowned designers. They inspire not only during fashion week, but EVERYDAY!

Papyrus always has the perfect set up to refuel with a new signature drink, recharge, and relax during this hectic time of the year! How perfect is the set up this year in Spring Studios? I love the vintage yet modern feel this season! Not to mention, It’s also always the perfect time to check out and stock up on all your favorite Papyrus cards!

Papyrus has always been known for their premium handcrafted paper goods and for their attention to detail, and they have always had a connection to fashion and to the arts. How beautiful is this display?! So relaxing to just chill out in between shows and look at the beautiful cards- it’s truly not just a card, but a piece of art.

But first, cofffe- right?! I’m always looking forward to the new signature drink and snacks to help you get through this crazy time of the year! My favorite this year was to get the Blush Latte. It was delicious and beautiful at the same time!

And what is a cup of coffee or tea without a sweet treat?! There was so much to offer from hazelnut & dark chocolate or earl grey & vanilla bean cram puffs, granola bars, to white chocolate passion fruit macarons! My favorite was the hazelnut & dark chocolate cream puff! Literally got 10 a day!

One of the most special and unique parts of The Café by Papyrus was haiku poet, Lisa Ann Markuson from the Haiku Guys + Gals group, who was at the café everyday to customize fashion week attendees with a special haiku written on the spot. How special is that? Only Papyrus would  think of something so genius!

This haiku was personally written for me was so personal and touching. Every person that got a haiku written left with so much happiness, hope, and inspiration. This was truly one of my favorite activations in all 12 seasons!

We can never forget all the beautiful Papyrus cards handed out during the week! Papyrus’ cards truly show so much attention to detail, innovative and cutting-edge treatments, premiere artist and world-renowned designer collaborations, and not just cards but new product categories like entertaining and desk accessories!

Everyday, there were 2 different cards being handed out by the Papyrus team and you can only imagine the look of sadness and frustration if they ran out of cards for the day! I always love how easy and fun Papyrus would make it to mail your loved ones (no matter where in the world they were) and spread the joy and beauty of Papyrus from their café at Spring Studios! I was sure to mail out all my Valentine’s Day cards on time in between shows!

This year, Papyrus had one of the most powerful movements I’ve seen with a “Beautiful Statement Walk”! The brand partnered with noteworthy fashion designers Prabal Gurung, Jonathan Simkhai. These designers have all made an impact on the fashion industry in their own unique way, and together with Papyrus they created empowering and inspiring works of art called and installed them backstage at the shows! Take a look at each designer’s twist on the concept!

Papyrus successfully collaborated with the designers to incorporate the designers' collections with the beautiful statement boards! They took the concept of walking directions and infused it with their usual creativity and beauty and really brought these words of CONFIDENCE to life! In the world today, with all the pressures to conform, this is such an important message to everyone.

I loved how different all the designers collaborations were!

There was just so much fun going on! One of my favorite collaborations was Papyrus x Judith Leiber! You can only imagine how excited I was to hear about another collaboration between my favorite cards and my favorite accessories! I had so much fun attending the Papyrus x Judith Leiber Party that kicked off NYFW: The Shows!

Dee Ocleppo collaborated with Papyrus on this collection and she is having all the photobooth fun seeing the Judtih Leiber Bag translate to the gorgeous Papyrus card!

How gorgeous are the new Papyrus x Judith Leiber cards!!?! I am obsessed!!!! Per usual!

Papyrus cards truly elevate everyday moments into the most magical events, and as everyone knows by now, I only get my cards from Papyrus! They truly make every moment you are celebrating that much more special, and even with an already amazing event like NYFW- it gets taken on a whole new level by Papyrus every season! I can't wait to see what magic they come up with next season!
