This weekend was filled with lots of rain in the city. But I was oh so happy it wasn't snow! A sign that maybe, just maybe, spring will finally show up! To celebrate, I pulled out my new red Hunters and I instantly felt happier! Fun pops of color can do that to you, ya know?!

 Here's to brighter and warmer days!

Shirt: Scotch & Soda (men's) (old). Jeans: Madewell. Glasses: ASOS (obsessed with these!). Bracelet: Taylor Morgan. Watch: Kate Spade. Earrings: Kate Spade. Purse: Michael Kors. Shoes: Converse.

I wish I could say that it was a nice spring day over the weekend, and that I got to walk around in this outfit without a jacket, but I would be lying. It is still winter over here in the city! In fact, it is snowing today (insert sad crying face). So instead I got to walk around the city looking like this...

TrimLab today, NYC Garment Center.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting one of the greatest fastener & trim companies in the garment center, TrimLab. Words fail me at where to even begin to describe how wonderful this company is. From their products to the wonderful people who run it, it's all amazing! I think what I love most about TrimLab, is the history each partner in the company has with the garment center and fashion industry. These guys are the real deal! Those true New Yorkers who know the industry inside and out because it has been passed down to them from generation to generation. All together, the companies at TrimLab have hundreds of years of combined experience.

TrimLab is a hub for all your fastener & trim needs. With a collaboration of several companies under it's roof, you can find everything from...
  • Zippers/zipper pulls
  • Metal/plastic fasteners for sportswear, lingerie, and swimwear
  • Bra cups and foam shapes
  • Interlinings
  • Specialty threads and elastics
  • Notions
Not to mention excellent customer service along with it! TrimLab, offers the rare convenience of sampling and customizing a wide selection of high quality products in one comfortable, inspiring location. Trust me when I say, you will want to work with them! If you're a fashion designer or fashion design company, be sure to check them out for all your fastener and trim needs in the city! When I asked the guys what is one thing they would love for people to know about them, the said "Experience is alive and well at TrimLab!" It's true!

 Be sure to check them out...

 Holidays are a great excuse to brighten up your house with cute decorations! And when you are in the heart of the winter blues, there is nothing better than some cute hearts to brighten your day! Plus, who doesn't love celebrating love?! 

 I found the cutest Valentine's Day wrapping paper from one of my favorite stores in the city, Paper Presentation. They always have the cutest stuff and I couldn't pass this paper up!

 A quick hand sketch of a heart, some rubber cement, scissors and twine and we're in business! To top it off, I added a cute bow on top. Twelve dollars later and we have ourselves a Valentine's DIY door decoration!

The Best Hair Dryer,
Misikko Hana Air

Hair Dryer: c/o Misikko Hana Air. Sweater: Tommy Hilfiger (sample). Earrings: Bauble Bar.

I have always had a cheap $10 hair dryer from good old Tar-zhay for as long as I can remember. On average it took about 20 minutes to fully dry my hair. And who really has TWENTY. MINUTES. to dry their hair almost daily? I certainly don't, hence why I always stretch my "clean" hair standards. Don't judge. I have always wanted a fancy dryer, but like most pricey things, I just kept putting it off.

Recently, I was so happy to be approached by Misikko to review their Hana Air Hair Dryer. And let me tell you, this dryer truly was life changing! Not only did it cut my dry time in half, but it left my hair smooth and silky after it was all dry. My old dryer would leave my hair looking like a lions mane, but not Hana Air! Hana Air makes it so that I really don't even need to flat iron my hair. Now that is my kind of dryer!

If you are in the market for a new dryer, be sure to get Hana Air
You will be so glad you did! Shop it here!
