“Fall” In Love with the Perfect Seasonal Bootie

You could say my fall uniform consists of two things: black booties and black jeans.

Living in NYC I feel like I have to buy a new pair of black booties every year and it was a never ending search for the perfect pair until I found the “one”.

They say, “you know when you know” and it’s true. The first time I tried on the Sam Edelman “Petty” bootie – my search was over.

It had everything I could want in an everyday boot; black leather, a low heel, sleek look, comfortable and timeless flair.

Paired with my newest destroyed jeans from American Eagle Outfitters — you could say it was a match made in heaven!

Possibilities are endless — and want to know the great thing? This boot comes in a variety of colors so now I need all of them (naturally). Cognac, grey, nude…and suede?! At under $150 – what’s not to love?

P.S. Happy #ShoesdayTuesday 🙂

SKINCARE SPOTLIGHT: MARIO BADESCU

It’s no secret – ever since I moved to New York I have loved getting facials at Mario Badescu.

Not only is it an affordable facial, but the estheticians are so kind and really take the time to evaluate your skin and understand what type of regimen is best for your skin type. I highly suggest their spa if you’re in the city!

I have always had sensitive skin so once a product works for me – I stay loyal. When it comes to MB I’ve stayed true to their Seaweed Cleansing Lotion. It’s a great toner that balances the oiliness of my skin and give that extra clean finish after cleansing. There isn’t alcohol in the toner so it never makes your skin feel tight or irritated.

If my skin is every feeling a bit on the the dry side, I love the Herbal Hydrating Serum. It gives an extra boost of hydration that still feels light.

My latest obsession? The Vitamin C Serum. Not only does it smell amazing — but it is a great addition to my skincare regimen to boost brightness.

I am super excited that MB has released a new scrub – the Botanical Exfoliating Scrub. I’m always looking for a good exfoliator to mix into my routine and this one is gentle enough that it won’t irritate or cause break-outs. (Win-win!)

Thanks Mario Badescu for sending me the below – so excited to rotate these products into my beauty regimen!
