Marble House Benefit







Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining The Marble House Project on the yearly benefit
in Dorset, Vermont. This year they went for an all white theme and as you can see I was able to wear this Balenciaga dress that I've had in my closet for a very long time. My boyfriend actually got this dress for me and even though I'm not one to go for a body-con dress this one seemed to suite me pretty well if I say so myself! With the grassy terrain I didn't want to wear fancy shoes that I would be upset if I got messed up so I decided to wear lace-up Zara shoes- talk about mixing high with low fashion!

If you guys are interested in learning more about The Marble House Project and their amazing art residencies please check them out here! The Marble House Project is run by a fantastic team that I have been honored to get to know them personally- so a big thank you to them for always being so hospitable!

Hey there!
If you follow me on Instagram you guys might have seen this outfit on there a couple of weeks ago, and I can't believe it has taken me this long to post it here! 


I took these photos on a really warm Sunday afternoon and it felt great to be wearing just a dress! (*Gasp* No tights!). This dress was given to me by the lovely ladies over at Lisa and Lucy. Their new spring collection is everything! I literally want e v e r y t h i n g! And the necklace was a gift from The Giving Keys. They're an amazing company that help men and women transition out of homeless-ness by making jewelry out of repurposed keys (I have the lock as seen above). Simply amazing right? Check them out- you won't be sorry!

Beauty 35


A couple of weeks ago I had the chance to visit Beauty 35 in NYC.
Beauty 35 is a beauty supply store like no other, and you have to see it to believe it.
When I say they have everything a girl needs,  I mean it!
They were nice enough to give me some samples to try for myself and I could't wait to try them.
The first product I used was TruCurl shampoo and conditioner. A lot of you might not know that I have naturally curly hair since I'm pretty sure this is the first time I'm showing my curly hair on my blog! What do you guys think?

If you are in the NYC area make sure to visit them for all your beauty needs!

Hi Ladies!
It's been a while since the last time I updated my blog. As the new year rolled in, I found it a bit more difficult to fit my blog into my schedule. But have no fear, I've managed to make more time to this ol' thing and I'm excited to get back to it! 

Recently, I went to hair salon O&M- they are an Australian based salon and they invited me to their NYC flag ship to get a hair update. I got my bangs trimmed and a hair gloss that also tones your hair for up to 6 weeks! I was a little nervous at first but I'm so happy that I did! In the 4th picture above you can see the touches of red-ish brown, It's subtle but I love it. I would highly recommend this salon if your in the NYC area. Below see some photos of the stunning space.
 I can't wait to go back!

Happy Holidays!

Nicole Miller Top
Nadri Earrings

The holidays are upon us! How quickly time passes by right? With everything happening so quickly it's important to slow down, relax and spend these specials times with the ones you love. With all the festivities that are coming up that means it acquires getting a little dolled up (for me at least!) and today I would like to share you my make up look that I will be wearing this Christmas.

I knew I wanted a festive look but also a look that would be long lasting. So, with-out a doubt I went for my Expert Last Lip Lacquer in the color Rockaway Ruby. I love that it can handle a night of food and drinks and the color stays on my lips! On my eyes I have on the 24HR Waterproof Eye Shadow in Brooklyn Mocha and Big Bold Angel Lash Mascara to make my eyes appear larger. To finish off the look, I applied 2 coats of the Long Wearing Nail Enamel in the color Broadway Burgundy Frost.

What do you girls think of this look? Let me know in the comments below.

This concludes my last blog post in 2015! 
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday and I look forward to a New Year with you all!

Lots of love,
Maria
