Winter is tough. The harsh and freezing elements affect the way we dress, what we do with our days and also how we take care of our skin. But if you treat your skin right, you can keep away the dreaded side affects of winter weather. This is what I do to keep them at bay;
Last month my good friend, Natalie of The Fashionably Broke and I got a sweet surprise of a mimosa starter kit from the lovely ladies of Bitches Who Brunch and Klink (the genius alcohol delivery app). We decided to stay in for brunch at Nat’s adorable apartment and she said she can “quickly whip something up”. Well, to say I was impressed would be an understatement, in minutes she had fresh fruit chopped, coffee brewing and breakfast bites cooking. The at home brunch was topped off with the cutest tableware and the yummy Tangerine mimosas from Klink. Since Nat pulled this off in record time (seriously there was no planning here, this was not a blogger styled food shoot!) I asked her to give us her top “at home brunching” tips!
If you like an extra shot of cuteness with your coffee you will LOVE Bedford Baking Studio. Alice and I stumbled upon it while I was showing her around Williamsburg Brooklyn a few weeks ago. We got ice coffees and a few sweet treats, they have many gluten free things to snack on including a really good quinoa medley. Grab a coffee to go and enjoy it on the adorable bench outside, a prime people watching spot.
OK, its getting cold. Not just a little chilly, actually cold and windy. To deal I have a few things I treat as urban armor that I wear daily keep the chill at bay, a warm cardigan or sweater (preferably in a shade of grey), a faux fur scarf to add a little glam to the regular week day and of course a black biker jacket to top it all off. Also, side note I have been really into the grey + navy color combo lately. Natalie found me this chic little cross-body while she was shopping at TJ Maxx, what a good friend right? It was $19! What a steal! Navy is such a good color to add to an outfit when you want an alternative to black but still want to keep a dark color palette. Bring on the navy!

Just a really quick post to sing the praises from my new white grid print coat from ShopPiin! The check/ grid print is definitely the print of the season. I’m really into all variations of this print and find it a nice alternative to plaid. And you know how much I love plaid! This gorgeous coat is actually on sale right now, check it out here.
Thanks to ShopPiin for hooking me up!
