It's The Climb

Location
Minnewaska State Park Reserve, NY 

IMG_9847-2

I visited this magical place last weekend when I was in need of inspiration and fresh air.  
This is certainly a place you come either to hike with the family or simply relax and clear your thoughts. I will focus this post on what I'm wearing and will post more details about the place in an upcoming post. 

It turned out to be a little cold this day and I only noticed that when I went up the mountain. I was so glad I brought my Adea turtleneck and my Dawn Levy coat. & I know you guys don't think I walked up with heels-on right? I brought my Ja-Vie flats for the climb. I'm also reworking this Daisy Fuentes skirt available at Kohl's (buy here). You can view my last post wearing it here

This top should be an essential piece in everyone's closet for the reason that it is skin-tight which makes it feel like you're wearing nothing. The material is super soft and comfortable which makes it impossible not to wear it everyday. I'm so hooked on this 'everyday luxury' brand.
_____________________________

Visité este lugar mágico el fin de semana pasado cuando estaba en la necesidad de inspiración y aire fresco. Este es sin duda un lugar al que vas, ya sea para ir de excursión con la familia o simplemente relajarse y despejar sus pensamientos. Me voy a enfocar en lo que tengo puesto y publicare más detalles sobre el lugar en una próxima entrada.

Resultó estar un poco frío este día y sólo me di cuenta de esto cuando suvi a la montaña. Yo estaba tan contenta de haber traído mi camisa de cuello alto por Adea y mi abrigo de Dawn Levy
Esta camisa debe ser una pieza esencial en el armario de todo el mundo por la razón de que el material es super suave y confortable al igual que es muy versátil

Skin Cancer Foundation Gala | Event Recap

“I partnered with P&G and Olay to attend The Skin Cancer Foundation Gala and produce this post. As always all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands and collaborations that make NY Trendy Moms possible!"

 
 

As many of you know, I was honored to attend The Skin Cancer Foundation Gala as an on-site correspondent for Olay. If you follow me on twitter you might have felt like you were at the gala itself from all my live tweets. The event was such an unforgettable experience and I am so happy I get to share every detail with you guys. From walking the red carpet to sharing an incredible room with the most influential dermatologists and celebrities in the business. It's awesome seeing how everyone came together to raise awareness and support a great cause. At the event, Olay was honored for their efforts around skin cancer prevention.


I was privileged to be at such a prestigious event beside Lela Coffey (Brand Director, North America Olay), Hillary Fogelson (Skin cancer survivor and sun protection activist), Karen Kovacs (publisher for People Magazine) Audrey McClelland (Mom Generations) and Dr. Robins (Founder/President of the Skin Cancer Foundation). 


The event was held at the Mandarin Oriental hotel hosted by Taye Diggs. A few of the performers included the legendary singer-songwritter Sting, Award winning Violinist, Joshua Bell and amazing pianist, Alessio Bax. The cocktail of the evening was the Olay Glow-jito (how awesome is that name!) and dinner was delicious as expectedWe had the choice of mushroom risotto or steak, I went with the risotto since I'm practicing towards becoming a vegetarian:) For those asking, I wore a beautiful peachy-pink dress by Virgos Lounge and Miriam Salat accessories. You can buy the dress here and accessories here + here


Many women have not been thoroughly educated on the importance of applying SPF every day, let alone how easy it is to work into their existing beauty regimen. To solve this, Olay launched a campaign to educate women about the importance of wearing a facial moisturizer with a minimum SPF 15 every day. Olay is helping women understand that sun protection does not have to be complicated it just has to be consistent. Olay introduced Total Effects SPF 15 and SPF 30 to provide women with skincare products to help them look their best beautiful every day. Can you believe Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 5 million cases of skin cancer are treated every year. Women shouldn’t have to choose between beauty and UV protection. Olay sun offerings feature SolaSheer Technology, which combines broad spectrum SPF protection with proven moisturizing agents to keep skin protected and allow women to put their best face forward.


The event was a success and I want to thank the Olay team for making this happen.

Green In Nature

IMG_9609

Good Day loves!

It's the middle of the week and I wanted to bring you some work-wear inspiration. Today I'm styling another piece from Daisy Fuentes Fall collection available at Kohls (buy here). This scuba dress is perfect for special occasions as well as for work. I played it safe and went with nude heels and a black blazer, very sophisticated. For a more fun look add leopard pumps and a red lip. A perfect combo for the holiday season.
_____________________
Es la mitad de la semana y quería traerles un poco de inspiración de ropa de trabajo. Hoy estoy usando otra pieza de la colección de Daisy Fuentes disponibles en Kohls (comprar aquí). Este vestido es perfecto para ocasiones especiales, así como para el trabajo. He jugado a lo seguro y me puse talones color crema y un blazer negro. Para un look  más divertido añada talones de leopardo y un labio rojo. Una combinación perfecta para las navidades.

Get Organized With Dagne Dover

IMG_9714-2

When it comes to handbags we all know this popular phrase fits perfectly.. "the bigger, the better" right! But not only that! We also need something that is functional. A bag that allows us to keep organize and that is where Dagne Dover comes in. 

When I first discovered Dagne Dover a few weeks ago I didn't think much of it. Yes, the handbags were fashionable. Yes, the bags were big enough to fit my life in but...what else? This is when I dug deeper and took a look inside! The true reason why Dagne Dover is so unique, thee only one-of-a-kind in this very crowded market space of bags is because of the functionality of each bag. 

I'm a very busy mom who Monday-Friday is heading to meetings and in constant need of my devices. I love laptop sleeves (don't get me wrong) but being able to carry my laptop, ipad, camera, snacks, water bottle and everything else in one bag is just A-mazing! I know where everything is and I could blindly pull anything out of my bag without struggling to find it. The sleek design goes with practically everything and I'm utterly in love with every pocket and every detail this bag has. 

My wonderful readers.. meet my new best friend The Tote by Dagne Dover
____________________

Cuando se trata de bolsos todos sabemos esta popular frase.."cuanto más grande, mejor". Pero no sólo eso! También necesitamos algo que sea funcional. Una bolsa que nos permita mantener la organización y es ahí donde Dagne Dover entra. 

Cuando descubrí a Dagne Dover hace unas semanas verdaderamente no me llamo la atención. Sí, las bolsas están de moda. Sí, las bolsas eran lo suficientemente grande para entrar todo en mi casa, pero ... ¿qué más? Esto es cuando mire en el interior! La verdadera razón por la que Dagne Dover es tan único es por la funcionalidad de cada bolsa. 

Soy una madre muy ocupada que de lunes a viernes se dirige a reuniones y siempre necesito mi computadora. Poder llevar mi computadora portátil, ipad, cámara, bocadillos, botella de agua y todo lo demás en una bolsa es increíble! Yo sé dónde está todo y puedo sacar a ciegas cualquier cosa de mi bolsa sin tener que luchar para encontrarlo. El diseño es muy elegante, combina con todo y estoy completamente enamorada de cada bolsillo y cada detalle que este bolso tiene.

The 2014 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala With Olay


I'm incredibly honored to be partnering with Olay and attend the 2014 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala tomorrow as an on-site corespondent. Olay is being honored at the 2014 Skin Cancer Foundation Gala for Olay’s efforts around skin cancer prevention.

Olay’s Sun campaign was created to educate women about the importance of daily sun protection and incorporating SPF as part of their everyday beauty routine. I'm one of those individuals who doesn't walk out of their house without a moisturizer that has a minimum SPF 15, as taught by my mother. The products below will help protect your skin from the sun, keep your skin looking beautiful and moisturized.   


Hillary Fogelson, the face of the campaign and a four-time melanoma survivor shared her amazing story with the world and is now inspiring us to realize the importance of protecting our skin with her own personal story. You can view her emotional journey below.

As a longtime fan of Olay's products I am thrilled to be sharing live-moments with you at the gala tomorrow. You can follow the hashtag #SCFgala #BestBeautiful and follow me on my social media accounts Facebook (Facebook.com/nytrendymoms), Twitter (@nytrendymoms) and Instagram (@nytrendymoms). Also make sure to follow Olay on Facebook (Facebook.com/Olay), twitter (@OlayUS) and Instagram (@Olay).

Unisex Fragrance by Krigler

LOCATION
The Plaza Hotel, NYC

IMG_9554

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! 

When I think of female fragrances I think of 'flowers'. When I think of male colognes I think of 'woody and strong scents'. Now... what comes to mind when you hear the word UNISEX?

That, was the question that had-me-going when I first heard about this new Ultimate K'Oud 75214 Krigler's fragrance from their Royal Collection. The fragrance was inspired by nature (which I love) and has a blend of spices that suit male and female equally. One spritz of this fragrance stays on your skin the entire day, which is very rare in fragrances nowadays. The deep, intense fragrance opens with BergamotCardamom and Black Truffle. The scent of Sandalwood and Cedar Wood lingers on the skin and becomes the perfect Autumn fragrance for ladies and gents. 


IMG_9553-2

 This fragrance can be purchased on Krigler.com or in The Plaza Hotel in New York City. The 1.7oz/ 50ml retails for $355 and the 3.4oz/100ml retails for $555. These fragrances make great holiday gifts for friends and families (if you're trying to knock two birds with one stone;) I already have in mind a few couples I will be gifting these to. 

Enjoy your Sunday loves and don't forget to enter my latest giveaways here and here!

Donate Your Hair To A Great Cause


When I was a little girl my mother cut 10 inches off my hair and donate it to a Cancer foundation and I'm hoping my little sister does the same next month. Hair is our identity and I can't imagine losing all of it due to an illness. Thats why I support Pantene for always giving back to those in need. Today I will be sharing information on the work Pantene is doing to help women fight cancer.

IMG_9087-4

You might know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month and Pantene is donating over $1 million dollars this year to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Program, created in 2006 to inspire people to grow, cut and donate their healthy hair to create free, real-hair wigs for woman who have lost their hair due to undergoing cancer treatments. The Lengths collection includes a shampoo, conditioner, and a 2-in-1 to strengthen hair against damage that leads to breakage. The beautiful Lengths Collection also helps you achieve healthy, long hair that can be shared with woman who needs it most. To date, Pantene Beautiful Lengths has received nearly 600,000 hair donations from generous men, woman and children. As a result 34,000 real-hair wigs have been provided to female cancer patients. 

In celebration of Pantene Beautiful Lengths 8th annual anniversary, telenovela superstar Maite Perroni will be meeting fans and asking the local Miami community to donate eight inches of their beautiful, healthy hair to help bring smiles and confidence to those women in treatment by giving them the opportunity to have free real-hair wigs.


Event in Miami

date: Wednesday, October 22nd
time: 5:00pm-6:00pm

The first 3 people to pledge to donate 8 inches of their healthy hair on National Donate Your Hair Day wins the Pantene Beautiful Lengths product collection (which I own and use) as well as a special gift. 

Donation Requirements
-must be a minimum of 8 inches long 
-Hair should be freshly washed and completely dry, without any styling products. 
-Hair may be colored with vegetable dyes, rinses and semi-permanent dyes. It cannot be bleached, permanently colored highlighted or chemically treated. 
-Gray hair does not absorb dye at the same rate as other types of hair, so hair may not be more than 50% gray.

If you'd like to help this cause contact NDYHDNYC@gmail.com to make an appointment to donate 8 inches of your healthy hair and get a haircut by a professional for free at Riza Hazan Salon. You will also be able to meet me as I will be on location that day:)

Cuando yo era niña mi madre me cortó 10 centímetros de mi cabello y lo dono a una fundación de Cáncer y estoy esperando que mi hermanita pequeña haga lo mismo el próximo mes. Como mujer, el cabello es nuestra identidad y no puedo imaginar perderlo todo debido a una enfermedad. Es por eso que apoyo a Pantene por siempre donar a los más necesitados. Hoy voy a compartir información sobre el trabajo que Pantene está haciendo para ayudar a las mujeres a combatir el cáncer.

Octubre es el mes de concientización sobre el cáncer y Pantene donará más de $1 millón de dólares este año sobre Pantene Beautiful Lengths, creado en 2006 para inspirar a la gente a crecer, cortar y donar su cabello saludable para crear pelucas de cabello real para las mujeres que han perdido su cabello debido a tratamientos contra el cáncer. La colección incluye un champú, acondicionador, y un 2-en-1 para fortalecer el cabello contra el daño que produce la rotura. Hasta la fecha, Pantene Beautiful Lengths ha recibido cerca de 600,000 donaciones de cabello de hombres, mujeres y niños generosos. Como resultado se han distribuidos más de  34,000 pelucas de cabello natural a mujeres que luchan contra el cáncer..  


En la celebración del octavo aniversario de Pantene Beautiful Lengths, la bella superestrella de telenovelas y cantante Maite Perroni se reunirá a sus fans y les pedirá a la comunidad local de Miami que done ocho pulgadas de su cabello saludable para ayudar a traer sonrisas y confianza a las mujeres en tratamiento, dándoles la oportunidad de tener pelucas reales gratis.

Evento en Miami 
Fecha: Miércoles, 22 de octubre
hora: 5:00pm-6:00pm
Ubicación: por Walmart 8651 Northwest 13 Terrace, Miami, FL 33126

Evento en Nueva York (Día Nacional para la Donación de Cabello) 
Fecha: Sábado, 22 de noviembre
hora: 12:00pm- 3:00pm
donde: Riza Hazan Salon- 720 quinta avenida- entre la calle 56 y la calle 57

Sorteo!! 
Las primeras 3 personas que se comprometen a donar 8 pulgadas de su cabello saludable en el Día Nacional de Donar Tu Cabello ganara el la colección de productos de Beautiful Lengths, y también un regalo especial.

Requisitos para la Donación 
-El cabello debe tener por lo menos 8 pulgadas de largo
-El cabello debe estar recién lavado y completamente seco, sin ningún tipo de productos fijadores
-Puede estar tenido- con tinturas vegetales, enjuagues y tinturas semipermanentes. Pero no puede estar tenido con tinturas permanentes y tampoco puede tener ningún tipo de tratamiento químico o rayitos.
-El cabello canoso es difícil de usar en la elaboración de las pelucas ya que no absorbe tinturas de la misma manera, por lo tanto que el cabello no debe tener más de 5% de canas.

Si desea ayudar a esta causa mande un correo electrónico a NDYHDNYC@gmail.com para hacer una cita y donar 8 pulgadas de su cabello saludable y obtener un corte de cabello por un profesional gratis en Rita Hazan Salon en NYC. También podrá reunirse conmigo ya que estaré en el salon ese día :)

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice

IMG_9629-2

One of my favorite late 80's movies (even though I wasn't born when it came out) was Beetlejuice.  I grew up watching this classic with my older brother and hoping a second one would be made, and that might just happen (rumors). Today's look was inspired by Beetlejuices costume and I thought this would be perfect for a girly Halloween inspiration. 

& how chic is this Daisy Fuentes skirt via Kohl'sHope you like it:)
__________________
Una de mis películas favoritas de finales de los años 80 (a pesar de que yo no había nacido cuando salió) fue Beetlejuice. Crecí viendo esta película clásica con mi hermano mayor y con la esperanza de que un día hicieran otra, y creo que mi sueño se va a realizar pronto. Este look de hoy fue inspirada por el traje que llevaba Beetlejuice y pensé que seria una buena inspiración para Halloween que se acerca muy pronto.

Para celebrar Daisy Fuentes décimo aniversario con Kohl, creó una colección cápsula de 10 piezas con sus 10 artículos favoritos para el otoño 2014. La colección cápsula ofrece una versión moderna de siluetas clásicas favoritas de todo el mundo. Esta falda es una de esas piezas versátiles de su nueva colección.
