Happy Monday! I had a really nice weekend and hope that you did too! It really felt like Fall here in New York… I went out and actually needed a jacket! I stayed off my phone for the most part, which was great. I took Facebook + Twitter off of my phone a month or two ago and I’ve been deleting the Instagram app on the weekends (yes, I know what that says about my self control, that I have to delete it as opposed to just not looking at it). Overall it just makes such a difference in terms of enjoying my surroundings and being present and not constantly scrolling scrolling through all of my social media apps! I’m going to write more about that later this week as I think digital detoxes are really important to staying sane. As social media is my job, it can be a little trickier, but taking a couple days off is really great.
I love this yellow wrap dress so so much. It feels like wearing a kimono (chic) or bathrobe (less chic). I wore it to host brunch on Saturday and felt really effortless and comfortable in it. DVF can do no wrong these days if you ask me. And I’ve been really into a darker lip for Fall. We will talk more about that in tomorrow’s beauty post, but this lipstick from Dolce & Gabbana is a good one!

Hi there! Where is the winner announced? I’d love to congratulate her … (and perhaps stop obsessively coming back to this post!)
I love your site. I’m new to it but I already am getting so much out of it. I have been thinking about trying Estée Lauder’s eye complex for a while now and finally went for it after your suggestion and was not disappointed! I have my eye on the SK-II stuff next, but my wallet is not yet on board! Ha.
Thanks for sharing your insights with us.
We announced on Instagram stories and emailed the winner. The winner’s name was Katie Raycer! I’m sorry you didn’t win, but am happy to hear you’re enjoying the blog!
I’ll update the blog post with the winner.
