  • NY Fashion Week Fall 2017

    It always seems to creep up on me, NY Fashion Week! And pops up quicker than the last season which was only 5 months ago. A week of high fashion and daring beauty, papparazzi pits and crowds surrounding celebs and for me, over 20 runway shows that I get to enjoy and appreciate! So much hard work goes into those 15-30 looks that the models are strutting down the runway and not JUST from the designers. Think of the music, the lights, the dressers in the back along with hair stylists and makeup artists, all making sure their part is up to par so the show goes off without a hitch. Take a look…

  • Art of a Pretty Clean Home: 6 Spring Cleaners for Those who Hate to Clean

    AOP Cleaning Post

    Spring is officially upon us and unfortunately so is “Spring Cleaning”. For all of those (like myself) who are not a fan of spending spring days inside scrubbing, washing and organizing here are some of my favorites finds to make the job a little less of a job…

    Clorox general bleach: Goodbye mildew, mold, moss and looking like a mess in my stained white blouse. Win!

    Glad trash bags with Gain scent: Because why should the trash can smell like garbage when it can smell like a lavender breeze or a Hawaiian vacation? Exactly…

    Pine-Sol: Zaps wine stains away on both my dress and my living room carpet. Done and done!

    Bounty with Dawn: Your dirty kitchen won’t stand a chance against this duo.

    Seventh Generation: The All Purpose Cleaner is free of harsh fumes and solvents and prevents volatile compounds or VOCs from polluting the air. FYI – the wipes can kill up to 99.9% of household germs in one fell swoop. Enough said.

    Tide HE Turbo Clean: Works with High Efficiency washing machines to save water and the cap actually tells you exactly how much detergent to use. No brainer.


  • TGIF Treats

    It’s Friday, which means i’m in full weekend warrior mode. I love spending my summer weekends hiking, biking or doing any “outdoorsy” activity and  am always on the hunt for the best snacks to pack. Here are a few that my friends over at LifeMinute tuned me into….Clif’s new Mojo bars packed with protein, Honest Team Lemonade to stay hydrated. And Badger Balm (a sunscreen AND bug repellent free of chemicals) for the win!


    Happy Weekend!


  • Noseblind and I Never Knew It!

    Have you ever wondered if your house smelled? I often find myself wondering if my three feline roommates or that gym bag, which has become a permanent fixture in my car have caused the places I inhabit to become offensive to the senses. However, I thought after several sniffs if I can’t smell anything no one can right? Oh how WRONG I was….

    Yesterday I learned the terrifying fact that my place could reek without me even knowing….”how?” you may ask… the answer, “Noseblindness”! Jane Lynch teamed up with Febreze and Funny or Die to expose the condition.


    ““Generally speaking many people experience “noseblindess” on a daily basis and there’s a pretty cool reason behind it– your brain registers scents and dismisses those that don’t pose a threat or require an action, that way your nose and your brain are freed up to focus on other surroundings,” Lynch told us.

    Get your nose in on the issue that is actually more scientific than you would think. And you can catch the hilarious Funny or Die “PSA” at www.noseblind.com.

  • Red Carpet Looks for Less

    I love red carpet season! The stars, designer dresses, hair, makeup…. ah I can’t get enough. Never did I dream that these looks were possible at home, but I was proved wrong after finding these look-a-like dresses at VERY affordable price points. Don’t believe me? Take a gander at the gowns Lupita Nyong’o and Jessica Biel wore at the Oscars next to the almost identical David’s Bridal gown.
