I’m back from the Big Apple and I’m pretty sure it was just all a dream. Did I really stand on the rooftop of The Met and watch the sun set? (Yes!) Was I at the Yankees game when A-Rod got his 3000th hit? (almost!) Did I see a dead guy on the subway? (that’s true too) New York City seems to offer it all, and I want to share with you some tips that made my trip extra magical.
I wait all year for June to arrive. I look forward to the upcoming summer, plan weekend road trips to visit friends in new places, and make changes to bring that “summer vibe” home with me. Now is the time to set the mood for your entire summer! There are a variety of ways we can freshen-up the ambiance and décor of our home to attain that summer-time vibe, not only on vacation, but also at home 24/7. No more vacation blues for us!
A few weeks ago I interviewed style and fashion blogger Stevie Henderson for the first installment of Confident. Fearless. Inspired. (If you missed it or need a refresher, here you go!) Since then I’ve thought about the style tips she gave us and the décor she said she’d love to have in her home. With Stevie’s suggestions in mind (black, white, simple, minimal patterns and color) I browsed a few of my fave online décor shops and threw together a few things I thought she may like. Here you go Stevie, a little design love All Por Ju! Hope you enjoy!
I spent my Memorial Day different than most, instead of pool parties and BBQs I had the opportunity of visiting Nicole Taylor Sharp and Mark Weinberger on their talk radio show, Spotlight on Vegas Business. What an experience it was! Upon arrival I met a few other local business owners… Dave Olesczuk from Fitbody Bootcamp, Lia from Belia Beauty and Skin Care (such a sweetheart, she donates her time and services to Cancer patients…my Mom will be seeing her soon for an oncology facial!) and finally Ruth Furman of Imagewords, a PR Queen and friend of mine.
I’m off to Manhattan for 9 days to explore and be inspired! Obviously, I’m totally stoked! We’ve rented a brownstone just North of Central park with every intention to become a “real New-Yorker”… ya right, like I’ll be able to figure out the metro. Is that even what New Yorkers call the subway? One thing I do know is I’ve been planning my packing list for weeks now- selfie-stick included. #noshame
Hey Guys, it’s Austrie! I’ve been chatting with one my favorite fashion/beauty/fitness bloggers, Stevie Henderson (she’s even done some styling for New York Fashion Week!). Talk about Confident, Fearless and Inspiring! She’s got some great advice about upcoming summer trends and fashion faux pas she’s not afraid to break. She’s also shared the links to some of her favorite things and some items on her wish list. So go ahead, fall in love with her style just as I have.
