Kate Spade iPad Case Du Jour 10.28.12 (Hurricane Sandy Edition)

This is a sort of random post, but you will see why this came to my mind. I love techonology, and I love my iPad. It is currently charging JUST IN CASE we lose power due to the lovely mistress, Hurricane Sandy.

Anyway, I have been on the perpetual hunt for the perfect iPad case. I have tried out a ton. I have a rhinestone encrusted one (not practical), I have one with the wireless keyboard attached (too bulky and heavy for a handbag), I have that one you can buy at apple, the front flap one (doesn't protect enough)... and so on. You can see finding the perfect iPad case can turn you into goldilocks quite quickly.

I went on a serch for an orange leather case, I know, kinda obtuse of me, I never expected to find one. Lo and behlod, I was wondering around Soho last saturday, about to indulge in a boozey lunch at Lure Fishbar on Mercer street with a dear friend and I happened to peep into Kate Spade.

Kate Spade is usually not my style, I err on the boho/ rocker/ glam end of style, i love oversized, neutrals and leather. Kate Spade can run you quite preppy. Anyway, I saw a bright orange lether case and excatly the style I was looking for. Slim, compact and bright. 

Long story short, I am so thrilled with my orange leather ipad case that I was motivated to share it with you all. It has a hot pink lining of leather with a gold accent on the outside which is a nice fashion touch.

Do you have an ipad? Are you like me, always on the hunt for the erfect case?
If so, try out and see if they just might have something for you!


PS- Everyone that is in the path of Hurricane Sandy, Stay Safe! Remember, all shelters are pet friendly, so please dont leave your furry babies at home!

And I am off to Kennebunkport, Maine...

What's a city girl to do when she wants to escape the honking NYC taxis, subways and wants to relax and Spa-aaah?

Naturally, take a road trip, rent a mustang and book a girls trip to spend a quiet 3 days in Kennebunkport, Maine at Hidden Ponds, of course.
Fine dining, spa's, bike riding, antiquing, s'mores and more awaits just a few hours away from the hubbub of NYC.

5 hours later... And I am here in Maine.

Will fill you all in after my girls getaway! Hey you never know who is close to Maine...

Obession Du Jour: Jack Black Lipbalm in Grapefruit and Ginger

I am sure you have all heard about Jack Black, no, not the actor, the brand of skincare. I had been hearing about the lip balm for a few YEARS, I will go as far to say. I dont know why but it just never interested me. I dont know, judge me if you must but yes, I judge a book my its cover.

The packaging never drew me into the product. However, after hearing raves upon raves for this lipbalm, being the lipbalm junkie (errr... addict) that I am, I gave in. 

The first one I picked up with the Lavendar flavored one, and ew. Seriously, I put it on and make that lemon face. I couldnt even believe I picked this flavor because it smelled and tasted putrid. I usually love lavender. I guess I never thought that I might not like to rub it on my lips.

Anyway, I spoke about it on twitter and everyone recommended the lemon flavor. I picked that one up and I liked it, a lot. Now I could maybbbeee see what all the raving was about. I like the consistency, its thick but not sticky and definitely is hydrating. This makes a great overnight lip treatment. I like to pile on, go to bed and wake up with super soft lips. Great. However, still the scent was not mind blowing.

Fast forward to 2 days ago, I was in Blue Mercury and I saw the display case of all the flavors and for some reason, a little voice in my head said to buy the grapefruit flavor. I LOVE grapefruist scents, I like the zing!

Lo and behold, I now am a believer. I am in LOVE with this scent. This scent makes me want to put it on everyday, all day. Who know the scent could make that huge of a difference? Anyway, I am now in love and recommend this lip balm (I dont think I have to tell you which one to buy...pretty obvious).

I will be picking up a few more of these in the same flavor to litter around my apartment. Have you tried? Which is your favorite flavor?

Blue Mercury Haul du Jour 10.5.12

I just got home from a wonderful facial at Blue Mercury in Union Square (more on the service later, I got dermabrasion- major thumbs up) and you know that I could not walk out with at least a FEW goodies. The Chanel lipstick in La Provocante was a separate little purchase from Bloomingdales and my attempt at stepping outside of my nude lipped box.

I wanted to share the below with you, obviously reviews for each will be coming up along with a video.

Have you tried any of the below? The m-61 cleanser and the Caudalie was recommended by the facials and used during. I liked them a lot, so to my house those babies came!

Have a great weekend! Any fun plans?

Exciting news is that my girl Gina is doing a huge promo for this week. You know I never post about sales or what not, but this is something I love!  I have these cases and they normally cost $50- $200 and Crystal Icing charges up to $400 for celeb blinged out phones.  

So basically, now you can get a crystallized iPhone case for under $20. Who doesn’t love some sparkle?That is a good price, I am going to snag a few for holiday presents!
