What to do with old bras?

IMG_0223-2

A few years ago I bought a great looking bra from Victoria Secret. Two and a half years later it started showing signs of an 'old' bra. I mean, I wore this bra pretty often and the more I washed it the less it would fit. Instead of shrinking it would expand. What I didn't realize was that the band on the bra was too loose because of it's age. I was really disappointed because it was my favorite bra! 
You know that feeling when you love something so much and you simply can't hold on to it anymore? Well.. that was the feeling I had when I opened that bin and just dumped the bra out! Thankfully, I don't have to feel that way anymore. 

We all know the saying "certain things get better with age" but bras are not one of them! 
Old bras can be uncomfortable with wire sticking out and loose bands. These are problems we all experience with old bras... and what do we do when this happens? We throw them out! 
Today I'll be sharing with you an incredible way to earn money for those old useless bras that belong in the garbage.

Best of Astoria

IMG_9972-4

Astoria has come a long way since it's early Dutch and German days in the 17th century. The people who inhabit this now-popular middle class neighborhood are Greeks, Middle Easters, Brazilians, latino Americans, Bangladeshis and Asians. Astoria is a melting pot for every ethnicity.

The amazing thing about this area is that you can find a Thai restaurant next to a cafe next to an Australian restaurant next to a bakery next to a... you get the drift. It's so accessible by train + bus and only 15 minutes away from Manhattan and did I mention the incredible view you get from Astoria Park of Manhattan.

random fact: I met my now husband in Astoria:)

In these last few years we have been noticing the amount of rich-ters ( not hipsters ) moving in the area. You'll find low-key bars like Let Love Inn serving unique cocktails such as the Dirty Brunette which almost feel Williamsburg-ish. Let me get to the point.. the demographic is changing drastically and I see it as a good thing. The neighborhood is definitely coming UP.

random fact: Tony Bennett grew up in Astoria.

We all know Astoria as the place to find the best restaurants in NYC. & by the best I mean great, fresh food that will keep you coming back for more!

It's very tough narrowing down the best of Astoria because to be quite frankly, there's a lot of great restaurants/bakeries/tavernas and cafes. In todays post I'll be focusing on two of my favorites and most recently visited restaurants.

The Children’s Place Spring Collection

IMG_0112-4

There's nothing more fun than dressing little girls up! So much to add and so many colors and patterns to play with. I've teamed up with The Children’s Place to share their Spring collection and give you 3 tips on how to dress little girls. 

tip #1- Don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns.
If anyone can get away with mixing colors and patterns, is definitely kids. 

tip #2- Accessories!! Sunglasses, scarfs, bracelets, handbags and headbands are a great way to personalize outfits for your little ones. 

tip #3- A pair of silver or white sandals are the best investment for any child during Spring. They match with pretty much anything and add the right amount of glam to a casual or dressy outfit.
