OOTW: My Paper Tote

Hey Girl Hey, I’m BACK from my blog hiatus and bringing you my new weekly post, Obsession of the Week.  They will range from shopping, to recipes, tv/movies, wine, restaurants… Basically whatever I love during any given week will be posted here for Y-O-U!  I’ve chosen my new FAV bag from My Paper Tote.  I’ve been carrying my Rose Gold Metallic bag all summer and have gotten compliments everywhere… even the cashier at Duane Reade took a picture and wrote down the info.  It’s hands down my favorite beach bag ever, and I had found it’s great for traveling too, I used...

Tay’s Obsession of the Week: DW Home Candles

Hey Girl Hey, You may not know this about me… but I legit have a candle addiction. The other day my doorman made fun of me for lugging in with two huge bags of candles and asked, “What is it with women and candles???”… Well in my opinion it’s a simple way to make any living space smell and feel cozy, especially during the holiday season. I discovered DW Home candles at T.J.Maxx and they have become my new go-to. The Sugar Cookie is seriously heavenly goodness, the Christmas Tree is GREAT for this time of year, but the Warm Tobacco Pipe is by far my favorite.  It...

Tay’s Fall Jamz

Hey Girl Hey, Well it’s 30°F outside so I’m officially hibernating until the spring.  That said, I’m SUPS excited to cozy up for the next week for Thanksgiving and drink hot toddies and eat my face off and wear sweatpants all day and binge watch tv AND… listen to my new fall jamz playlist.   The 4th of July playlist that I made was a hit so I wanted to make a new one that was more seasonally appropriate.  So for you I’ve put together a lot of my favorite songs and artists that will without a doubt put you in a cozy,...

Tay’s Obsession of the Week: Onion Goggles

Hey Girl Hey, Yes, you read that right. Thanksgiving is around the corner and rather than giving you some recipe I stole off the Weight Watchers website, I’m going tell you about something much more valuable.  Whether you’re hosting, cooking or just an attendee on Thursday, this item below is a party must-have.  I know these look ridiculous… but oh my god I need them in my life now.  Ladies and gentlemen… introducing… steampunk goggles. And I’m being for reals.  I just ordered them.  Want to know why?  Because out of my mom, sister and myself I am by far...

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Gold Shoes

Hey Girl Hey, These gold shoes were made for walkin’, and that’s just what I’ve done!  I went to the premiere of ‘Bad Santa 2’ earlier this week and wore my gold heels to add a little POP to my outfit.  I’ve worn these beauts a few times over the past couple months and have received a lot of questions/comments about them.  So I’m here for some answers! I bought them at Zara (obviously) about three years ago but have done my very best to find some similar picks. This is the closest gold hue to mine I have found!  They’re also good quality...

Tay’s Obsession of the Week: Thieves Hand Purifier

Hey Girl Hey, It’s officially flu season – shit, thats remind me I have to get my flu shot.  I don’t know about you, but I’m totally OCD about washing my hands and not touching railings, subway poles, bathroom handles… anything in public really.  So the only way to avoid getting that nasty flu is to either hole up at home like a hermit, wear a hazmat suit for the next 5 months (not cute) OR option three: get yourself  an A+ hand sanitizer. Regular purifiers smell like alcohol, but I recently stumbled upon this ahMAzing one from the...
