Eyeshadow Obsession Du Jour 9.28.09

Two of my favorite eyeshadows I own. I hope at one point they will re-promote these colors. Expensive Pink on the left and Magnetic Fields on the Right.

 Edit: as everyone commented expensive pink is perm. Sorry for the FATAL error :) I had no idea...I usually avoid pink at all costs. What drew me in to this eyeshadow was the bright orange packaging and thank god it did!

Expensive Pink - a beautiful shimmering golden peach color, not very pink at all. This shadow is so buttery soft and smooth. Gorgeous texture.
Magnetic Fields- a perfect cool toned brown with subtle microglitter flecks.
These two look fantastic together, every time I use these colors someone will complement my eyes, does not fail. Do you have any items like that? Ones you put on and right away you know it will be a good day?

What two eyeshadows are your favorite?

Lashes Du Jour 9.25.09

I happened to pop over to Mac yesterday. Ooops and bought probably half the style black collection. It is so right up my alley with all the smokiness and glitter and BLACK products. I have not been so excited about a collection since... I really dont know. Anyway, I also picked up a new pair of lashes. These are my favorite my far. I had to even wear them to work today. Half lashes for me are the most simple, easy way to wear falsies!

They are called the lash 45's. They are half lashes with added bundles towards the end. I think I might have to pick up another pair of these I love them so much!

My hair is a bit in the way but you can see they are half lashes that flip way out on the ends. They create a very nice cat eye look when done with black liner. This was a very easy simple make up look. Basically nothing but black liner smudged on my lower lash line and false lashes!

Do you wear fake lashes? How often? What is your favorite brand for lashes?

Obsession Du Jour 9.25.09

No where to be found. DAMN IT. I want these.

Greens Du Jour 9.24.09

Green is my favorite color. As you all know I really don't wear colors on my eyes. It just isn't my thing, WITH the exception of Greens. I love greens on my eyes. It is a subtle color if done right. Below are two of my favorite green eyeshadows. On the right is Make Up forever 310 diamond shadow and on left is NARS Nightporter. Both of these shadows is ultra pigmented and I am hard pressed to pick a favorite. MUFE is a shimmery butter soft forest green and NARS nighporter is a ultra pigmented deep dark smokey green with a sophisticated microglitter. 

Fantastic. Which is your favorite?

Cheap Obsession Du Jour 9.23.09

I am sure you have all heard of Essence of Beauty. I can not rave about this line of brushes enough. Not only are they dirt cheap they are fantastic. I can safely say that the large foundation brush is an absolute must have for me. In addition, the angled contour brush can rival MAC's anyday. They are animal cruelty free which is a must and they do not shed! What more can you ask for? 

A little about Essence of beauty line, it is sold at every CVS drugstore and retails from about $10 -$15 for a pack of 2 brushes. The large foundation brush was $10.99. Score!! 

I use the top one for foundation, the middle one for foundation around my eyes and nose and the other end for creamy concealers and the last one for contouring and highlighting.

Have any of you ever tried these?

Obsession Du Jour: Illamasqua Furore 9.21.09

I love pigments, even though I am a huge clutz and wind up spilling half of it all over my bathroom floor. Illamasqua seems to have solved for this with the packaging. In general this product is one of my favorite in regards to the packaging. It is very sleek and clever. I picked this baby up at the Sephora in Times Square.

Illamasqua pigments seem to me a mix of mac's pigments and reflects. They are very shimmery with a touch of very find glitter. I love them. This color isn't one I have in my collection. I do own both MAC's Vanilla and Pink Opal which i love. Furore seems to be a perfect mix between Vanilla and Pink Opal, it has an iridescent, opalescent pink goldy silver sheen.

I find so many uses for this pigment. I have been using this on my brow bone and to highlight my cheekbones and I am loving it. The only downside is the price, it is a bit spendy for the amount you get.

I want to get the two new pigments that came out with Dystopia, Android and Static. Has anyone tried these yet?

Oui Oui Oui Non Non Non 9.15.09

I know I am very behind on the whole Yes! lip balm sensation. I have had this for quite a while and wanted to give it the proper usage before reviewing. I personally love the body shop! I love what they stand for and everything about them. I wanted to try out this lip balm for a while, i love that it benefits Aids research.

Onto the product. I have mixed feelings on it.

I love how it makes your lips look, i do not love the moisturizing qualities of it. I do not feel that is moisturizes very well at all. However, on the lips it pales down to a baby pink and smells gorgeous. I would consider this more of a lip gloss in regards to the fact is alters your lip color and doesn't do too much as a treatment. I do really love how it looks though, so much in fact, that I bought 3 in case I run out!

Have you tried this?

Tell me Lies, Tell me sweet little Lies....

I picked up Illamasqua cream blush in Lies. The color in the pot is a light baby pink, a bit similar to Well Dressed by MAC (my best friend and my fave blush ever possibly).

 However, I was quite disappointed went I swiped this and there was very little color pay off (As compared to rude with had amazing pay off). After I got over my initial shock at lack of color I realized this is more of a highlighter than a blush and it now my favorite cream highlighter. It is perfect for that dewy look. This has become a staple in my routine every day. As you can see below I use it on my cheeks, brow bone, cupids bow and even on my lips. 

 In the compact.

Swatch on hand.
On my lips alone.
Bare faced with just Lies on my cheeks and brow bones.
Anyone else loving LIES?

Aqua Eyes Du Jour HG STATUS 9.13.09

I might be a little behind on the times, but I have just tried out Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes liner and wow. 

This sucker is amazing. Intense and stays put. I think I will be ditching all other eyeliners. I used to be a huge fan of NARS liner, but it doesn't hold a candle to this one. I have only tried the black and I will be trying out some more for sure. The texture is creamy but not as creamy at Urban Decay Zero so it slips right off. I like Zero but it is too creamy for the bottom lash line and doest stay that long on the water line. MUFE Aqua eyes stays put on the lower lash line and wears relatively well on the water line. You will need a few touch ups throughout the day but this is great.

I swiped this on my hand and washed my hands and it was still there! (Top and Middle Swipe)
Have you checked this out yet? What is your favorite liner?

Hair Obsession Du Jour 9.13.09

Foundation, Foundation, Foundation 9.11.09

This is a first, I just just finished my Make Up Forever HD foundation. While I liked this foundation I do not think I will be sticking with it. There are just too many others I want to try. Specifically:
  • Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation
  • Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing foundation
  • Illamasqua Rich Foundation
  • NARS Sheer Glow Foundation
and I will be repurchasing my favorite foundation Chanel VitaLumiere.

Anyway, I assume eventually i will try all of these out. See what each company says about all... what a hard decision!

NARS reinvents foundation with a modern formulation designed to enhance your natural complexion without masking it. The weightless formula glides on effortlessly, blurring imperfections and evening out skin tone for the ultimate sophisticated finish that allows your skin's natural beauty to shine though. Sheer Glow is a glowing, satin-finish foundation with sheer and buildable coverage. Replete with skincare benefits and the NARS Exclusive Complexion Brightening Formula, skin is hydrated, more luminous, softer and smoother. Illuminate your skin for an immaculate finish.


Lock away your inhibitions and bring your confidence to the fore. Touted by professional makeup artists, Illamasqua Rich Liquid Foundation provides maximum, long-lasting coverage without feeling or looking heavy. It blends easily and hides problem areas perfectly. Create your canvas and then paint your work of art.

Delivers a young, radiant look. Lines, wrinkles and imperfections seem to be erased. Ultra-gliding fluid provides buildable coverage. SPF 15 UV protection; nut extract guards against free radicals.


This super-moisturizing formula gives skin a soft, healthy, even-toned glow as it helps reverse the visible signs of aging. Formulated with a natural collagen boosting, skin firming blend of Hexapeptides and Milk Thistle Extract. Softens fine lines and imperfections. Skin looks and feels refreshed, renewed and beautifully luminous. Offers medium-to-full coverage. For Normal to Dry Skins. Newly expanded shade range including three new shades requested by artists and customers alike: Cool Beige, Natural Tan, and Warm Honey.


Bobbi's popular moisturizing formula provides SPF 15 sun protection while it hydrates skin and delivers a soft, beautiful finish. The formula is buildable, allowing medium to full coverage as desired. For Normal to Dry skin types. Now, Bobbi’s making it easier than ever for a woman to find her perfect foundation with an expanded shade range including three new shades requested by artists and customers alike: Cool Beige, Natural Tan, and Warm Honey.

I think I am going to try the Bobbi Brown Luminous first and obviously I will HAVE to try the illamasqua one because it looks amazing and it is a steal compared at $30.

Have any of you ever tried any of the above? Do you have any reviews on which I should try first?

Obsession Du Jour and OOTD 9.10.09

I was shopping my stash last week and I found my newest obsession.

I love that its something I already own. It is Mac's Naked Pigment. What a perfect color and consistency. I have been using it every day for a week now. It is beyond multipurpose. I use it on my eyes as the perfect nude, skin but better color. I have been using it as a cheek highlight, it is the ultimate, I think my HG skin highlighter search is over. It highlights with shimmer without being frosty, very natural and glowy looking. I also have been using it mixed with lip gloss for a nude lip. I will be buying this over and over but I doubt I will run out soon as there is SO much.

Swatch on Hand.
As a cheek Highlight.

Loving lots of layers: A tank dress in heather grey with a white racerback tank over that. Topped off with a cream drapey cardigan. Slouchy suede caramel boots.

Do you ever shop your stash? What do you find?

Just some black eyeliner smudged alone the lower and top lash line. Very Simple makeup to go with the messy bedhead do'.
How was everyones weekend?

Pssst...MAC at Milk Studios

Milk Studios is the place to be this fashion week, not the tents!
Very interesting news...no more MAC at Fashion week. Just Maybelline...

"The first solid details on the tentatively titled MAC at Milk shows since the cosmetics company decided to end its partnership with IMG leaving Maybelline to jump in as the official makeup sponsor at Bryant Park.
And the initial list of designers signed on for events at Milk Studios is very, very strong: Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang, Peter Som, Threeasfour, Vena Cava, Band of Outsiders, Adam Lippes, Altuzarra, Barbara Tfank, Costello Tagliapietra, Erin Fetherston, Pamela Love, Preen and Temperley London.

MAC is offering up use of the space rent-free for designers to hold proper runway shows, presentations, or parties. A spot at the tents runs from $26,000-$50,000.

MAC’s John Demsey (pictured with Milk’s Mazdack Rossi) told WWD, “We are not looking to create a parallel universe. We are looking to create an editorially relevant fashion venue. [The CFDA] was fully in support of it. We thought it was a good thing because a lot of the designers are not showing in tents to begin with. The ability to consolidate those activities in an amazing creative space with amazing photographic and digital capabilities and sound systems makes the week more rationalized and more organized. Not every designer should be in tents…and not every designer should have a runway show.”

MAC wants to work with designers in a very integrated way and this new venue also leaves them free and clear of all the other sponsors that overcrowd Bryant Park. Based on their past shows and events, we can’t wait to see what they come up with. All parties involved are claiming there is no rift. But we can’t imagine that IMG and Fern Mallis find this to be a happy thing for the goings-on at Bryant Park. They say they will be offering shuttles as long as nothing conflicts with shows at the tents, but that is bound to happen numerous times during the week.

And MAC is certainly establishing itself as having the “cool” venue for the week, even if it hasn’t poached many designers directly from the tents."

I cant wait to go to Milk!!

Vogues Fashion Night Out: Beauty Itinerary

Us in the fashion industry have been planning this global fashion retail party thrown basically by Anna Wintour for 6 months now. It was initially proposed about 2 years ago at a Nieman Marcus breakfast in Paris. The point of it is a global initiative to promote retail, restore consumer confidence, and celebrate fashion, U.S. and international editions of Vogue are coordinating evening extravaganzas in their respective world fashion capitals.

I will be spending most of my night at the company I work for and our vendors such as Barneys and Bergdorf's and a few small hot spots such as Phillip Lim, Teen Vogue Party and Opening Ceremony.

There is also great stuff going on in London, Paris, Japan, Berlin and Milan. All of UK ladies check out whats going on in your city, I know Liberty, Harrods and Selfridges are all doing some fun things!

I have compiled a fun BEAUTY itinerary from Vogue for anyone that is going to be in NYC area. Let me know if you plan on going anywhere!

Union Square Area:
"A landmark evening is even better when it starts at an actual landmark, so, downtowners, kick off your night at M.A.C.’s store in the historic Flatiron building. Guests will get a sneak peek at the brand’s new “Style Black” makeup collection—which channels the tough-chic eighties fashion spotted on the recent fall runways with Sprouse-inspired eye kohl, liquid vinyl lip gloss, and glittering Goth noir nail polish—while a deejay spins in the background.

A few blocks south in Union Square, Fresh co-founder Alina Roytberg will be on hand for personal beauty consultations: Sip on Veuve Clicquot while browsing the airy boutique’s selection of sake and rice-infused body treatments and Umbrian Clay face masks—or opt for a quick makeup application (tip: the company’s new pink-tinted Sugar Rosé lip balm is universally flattering). Afterward, a pro photographer will snap a new photo for your Facebook page—then upload it instantly. If you’re seeking one of the luxe beauty brand’s addictive eau de parfums instead, simply head around the corner to Sephora’s Seventeenth Street storefront, where Roytberg partner (and Fresh co-founder) Lev Glazman will demonstrate custom fragrance-blending from an on-site Ingredients Bar.

After a quick stroll through the park and down Third Avenue—you’ll hear the party before you get there—Kiehl’s will be celebrating the fortieth anniversary of its best-selling Lip Balm #1 with live karaoke (take note: a top secret celebrity guest will take turns at the mic). Next up, die-hard makeup enthusiasts can zip down Twelfth Street, where Make Up For Ever top talent Floriane David will perform live body painting for an audience at the company’s sleek neighborhood storefront. To cap off the evening feeling as good as you look, drop into The Body Shop on Broadway, where proceeds from the company’s organically grown cotton Bag For Life tote will be donated to the Somaly Mam Foundation.

Uptown: East Side
It’s going to be a long night, Upper East Siders—which is why we suggest kicking it off calmly with a little shopping fortification: a neck and shoulder massage at the Clarins Skin Spa on Madison and 81st. Once sufficiently relaxed, drift out the door and cruise down the avenue toward Jo Malone, where floral designers from U.K. florist Jane Packer will make custom bouquets—orchids, vanilla pods and fennel frawns to go with Jo’s Vanilla Anise, for example—complimentary with any purchase. Flowers in hand, make your way to Clyde’s chemist (clinical skin care czar Peter Thomas Roth will be there), and Bond No. 9—where a spritz of Madison Soirée eau de parfum clearly makes the most sense (it also comes in a candle).

Barneys’ beauty level will be abuzz with their resident gurus: Olivia Chantecaille and her team will record your Chantecaille makeover with Flip video—and then email it to you so once at home, you won’t miss a step recreating your perfect fall face. Lipstick Queen’s Poppy King—purveyor of the ultimate red lipstick—will perform “lipstick readings,” while prince of perfume Frédéric Malle presides over his shop-within-a-shop (don’t miss poking your head inside his signature Smelling Columns) and signs bottles of his culty Editions de Parfums scents. Spencer Krenke from Saint Parfum will be blending made-to-measure room scents and candles complete with old-fashioned, custom calligraphied labels (your friends will all be jealous—trust me, mine are). Ben Gorham—faultlessly chic creator of the Swedish perfume line Byredo—will unveil a new collaboration with his fellow Swedesters from Acne: No. 23, a limited edition candle, created for the fashion label’s new flagship, located at Lilla Nygatan 23, in a 17th century building in Stockholm’s Old Town. Last but not least, at 9 PM, Barney’s’ in-house cosmetics authority, Jason Ascher, and I will Rehab Your Makeup Bag—what to keep, what to toss, and what you absolutely must have for the season ahead.

If you haven’t seen the secret beauty bonanza downstairs at the Plaza hotel yet, tonight’s the night. Makeup artists from Smashbox and Warren Tricomi salon’s Joel Warren and Edward Tricomi will demonstrate fall’s latest trends. Across the street at Bergdorf Goodman, extreme beauties Caroline Trentini and Daria Werbowy will be on the 3rd floor to help fête Rizzoli’s new coffee table tome Extreme Beauty in Vogue (a book we highly recommend, naturellement). Be sure to get your copy signed by Vogue’s Phyllis Posnick—the editor who collaborated on many of the book’s most memorable Kleins, Newtons, and Penns. Upstairs, the party on 5 is all about Roopal Patel and makeup artist Troy Surratt’s masterful new makeup palette for Le Métier de Beauté—an entire season of trends (Rodarte’s road warrior…Balmain’s party girl…), one slim black case. Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, and Blake Lively are all fans of makeup artist Angela Levin, and anyone who pops into Chanel’s 57th Street boutique can experience her magic touch (and create their own Chanel bag—from leather to strap to monogram—while they’re at it). Several shops away, YSL turns Parisienne, with a first peek at the new fragrance and campaign starring Kate Moss.

Meredith Melling Burke will bring a posse of our favorite models—Coco Rocha, Behati Prinsloo to name a few—to Bendel’s, where we’ve curated the ultimate fall Vogue Checklist for one night only. This season, red lips rule, and after an “Unforgettable” makeover with Revlon superstar Gucci Westman—the makeup artist behind so many Vogue covers—so will you. Also part of the deal: a photo session styled by Gossip Girl costume designer Eric Daman. There will be a rare selection of vintage fashion, beauty, and accessory books, specially shipped in from LA’s Nick Harvail Antiques, and Alexa Rudolfo—NYC’s go-to-girl for pre-gala makeup and hair house-calls—will turn it out with her new line of culty candles. Whatever you do, do not miss the No Fear Nail Bar, where the masters from Valley—current obsessions here at the magazine; stay tuned for our October issue—will take your hands to another level with freehand Japanese nail art and all manner of quirky-cool embellishment. Just ask Vogue’s manicured-to-the-max fan Sally Singer: These women can do anything.

How’s your hair? Be among the first to see Oscar Blandi’s brand-new (opened-this-week) salon on Madison and 55th for his ever-popular Blow-Outs & Bellinis. Along with styling stars Luca and Nunzio, and over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, Oscar will teach you how to do a flawless salon-quality blowout, at-home. (212-988-9404 for appointments)

If a makeup lesson from Bobbi Brown and her backstage team appeals, make sure to get to Saks early in the evening (212-753-4000 x2194 for appointments). Aerin Lauder will also be in the house, taking a page out of grandma Estée’s book, and manning the counter. Aerin will share her favorites for the season, most notably, her new Private Collection Jasmine White Moss perfume. Don’t leave the counter without having one of Lauder’s signature gold powder compacts and lipstick cases engraved—a rare treat (and a great gift). Next up: The coco connoisseurs from La Maison du Chocolat will create the ultimate chocolate tasting, pairing their treats with Tom Ford’s four new White Musk scents. The first customer to purchase the coffret containing all four perfumes in their 50 ml size will be immediately upgraded to the gargantuan 250ml decanters, housed inside a deluxe Macassar wood box, complete with a note signed by Tom. Mingle with model Daria Werbowy at the Lancôme counter (from 6-7 she’ll be previewing the new Hypnôse Senses perfume, straight from Paris); talk skincare with Révive’s Dr. Gregory Bays Brown and the mad scientists behind La Mer’s mysterious miracle broth. Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani Cosmetics’s much-loved national makeup artist, has managed to smuggle into the store 100 advance tubes of Rouge d’Armani lipstick—50 in a shade of drop-dead-red (#400) and 50 of what will surely become the season’s cult sensation: an extra-bright, yet elegantly wearable magenta (#600). And amid this swirling storm of glamour: porcelain-skinned model Coco Rocha and I will pop from counter to counter, hand-picking our own fall must-haves—the cosmetics, skincare, perfume and candles that make the cut. (Five lucky shoppers will win the whole stash).

But the night isn’t over yet. Two blocks down 5th, at Sephora, from 8-9 PM, model Bar Refaeli (undercover cosmetics junkie) and I will answer all of your beauty quandaries at the Ask a Model, Ask an Editor Vogue Beauty Bar. Meanwhile, the mezzanine will morph into a “living museum,” as the airbrush masters from Temptu (responsible for everything from Nicole Kidman’s picture of perfection in The Stepford Wives and Robert DeNiro’s chillingly tattooed Max Cady from Cape Fear to the airbrushed kisses on Thakoon’s recent runway) will demonstrate their art, in living color. Get your own airbrushed look (intricate 80s eyes? Super-contoured cheeks?) —followed by a personal photo shoot—or just marvel at the models, who will be airbrushed head-to-toe.

Upper West Side
On September 10th, grab a stack of your favorite magazines (Vogue and Teen Vogue, of course) and head out to one-stop beauty shop Bluemercury’s Tear-and-Wear event. The mission: a customized look chosen—by you—straight from your favorite ad or editorial—the Tear—and deftly re-created by makeup artists from NARS, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier,and Trish McEvoy—the Wear. (Tip: Call ahead to book an appointment: 212/799-0500.)

Now, with the perfect red lip, the most intricate airbrushed eye, and seamless foundation in place, cruise down to Space.NK, on Columbus Avenue between Sixty-ninth and Seventieth streets. Here, beauty mastermind Nicky Kinnaird’s team is trained and at the ready for personal skin consultations (maybe it’s time to try a serum), expert eyelash applications (a lesson to remember), and makeup how-to’s—the evening doesn’t end until 11 p.m., and neither should your makeup. If 80s punk-goth is your vibe, don’t miss the StyleBlack party atMAC on Columbus and 66th. DJ’s will spin; models will model, and this night only, you can get the season’s subversive new black lip (in glosses, mattes, and sheers) before it goes on sale at the end of the month.

Next up (and a few steps away) is the Lancôme boutique party with designer Chris Benz. In between sips of Henriot champagne and bites of Magnolia cupcakes, Chris, joined by star makeup artist Daniel Martin and best pal (and Lancôme face) Elettra Wiedemann, will be unveiling a wait-list-worthy limited-edition lipstick hot off his runway. Bonus: Anyone who signs up—the lipstick debuts in January; the wait list begins tonight—has a chance to win two tickets to Benz’s Spring 2010 show (remember: Fashion’s Night Out is also the kick-off party for New York Fashion Week).

Over at the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle, there’s finally a chance to relax (or reenergize if your FNO agenda is far from over) in the next best thing to an English still garden: Crabtree & Evelyn is treating guests to hand massages using the line’s chic shea butter hand creams (scented with the company’s signature lavender, rose, lily of the valley, wisteria), followed by palm readings. The first 50 guests to arrive will get a free sample of the new Citron, Honey, & Coriander hand-care remedy (not available to the rest of the world until October). Then, check out neighboring FACE Stockholm (just two stores over) for facial and hand massages from an ayurvedic therapist using the line’s marine-enzyme cream."- Vogue

HAVE FUN and support retail and the fashion industry!

Update and FOTD 9.6.09

Hola,  I know I know I have been slacking big time. I have warned you all though! September in fashion is brutal! Between all the buying appointments and market where all the international buyers come and see the line and fashion week it does not make me a happy girl with lots of free time.

Anyway, I wanted to do a FOTD using the new palette from MAC called Photo Realism. I actually love this palette. I have been very very very bored by MAC recently. They have been putting out too many collections and none have REAL substance for me. I only had interest in this one palette and the Heritage Rouge pigment which was a re-promote anyway.

Apologies for the messy hair! Early morning. I did not even brush it until I was sitting at my desk! 
Quick update on project clear skin, it is going very well. As you can see my skin has completely cleared up. Thank god. Thank you Clarisonic and Cetaphil. I will never ever ever use Mario Badescu moisturizer as long as I live. However I do still love the Drying Lotion and Drying Cream.

I got a quite a few questions on how long my hair is and what I do with it. Well here is a full length shot, more on what I do later on... spoiler alert. I do not do too much with it. I actually am thinking about changing the color. What do you guys thinks about that? Shall I go blonder or darker?

Lastly, I know there was a lot of interest in the Christian Siriano for payless and how they were in person. I love them, they look great! They for sure are worth $39.99. Great deal. I think its very smart what Payless is doing right now. They are partnering with great designers (Stacey Bendett from Alice and Olivia and Abaete) to create fashion forward and affordable shoes. Bravo! 

I hope this post got a few questions answered for some of you. More posts to come!
Please let me know if there is anything you specifically want to know more about! xx

Sunday in the City 9.2.09

My Sunday was beautiful. The weather is finally gorgeous!

My best friend and I decided to walk from our Apartments in Chelsea through the west village to Christopher St Pier on the Hudson River.

Bleecker St. My favorite little strip in the city, Bleecker and 11th st.

Christopher St Pier view into NJ.

The Pier.

How did you spend your weekend?
