Best of Astoria


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


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. 

No hay nada más divertido que vestir a las niñas! Tantos colores y accesorios para ponerles. Me he unido con The Children’s Place para compartir su nueva colección de primavera y darles 3 consejos sobre cómo vestir a las niñas.

#1- No tenga miedo de mezclar colores y patrones.
Si alguien puede salirse con la mezcla de colores y patrones, es definitivamente las niñas.

#2- Accesorios!! Gafas de sol, bufandas, pulseras, bolsos y cintas para el pelo son una gran manera de personalizar trajes para niñas.

#3 Un par de sandalias blancas o color plata son la mejor inversión para cualquier niña durante la primavera. Coinciden con casi cualquier cosa y añaden la cantidad justa de glamour a un traje casual o elegante.

The Family Benefit At The Metropolitan Museum of Art

1000 5th Ave(82nd street), New York, NY 10028


When my family and I were invited to attend The 23rd annual Family Benefit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art we were thrilled because it's our favorite museum in New York City. My girls were prepared for a night of fun mystery solving games, arts and crafts, ice-cream eating, puzzle making and at last.. an awesome dance party along with a kid-friendly dinner at the Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing. 

I hope you enjoy the photos below and if you'd like to attend any future events at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, please click here. Happy weekend!

It's Simple


Valentines Day is around the corner and I seriously haven't figured out what I will be doing that day. I'm usually the one who plans everything ahead of time, literally one-to-two months before hand. With New York Fashion Week upon us, major changes in my daughters school and activity schedules, travel plans etc, it's been a tiny bit hard to plan something extra special for Moe.

To be quite honest I'll probably just take him out to dinner and book an experience from Cloud 9 Living. You might remember our previous adventure on a helicopter around NYC (view here). It was such a special adventure, Moe still talks about it.

If you're not sure on what to do this Valentines Day checkout the awesome activities and adventures Cloud 9 Living has on their site. Use code VDAY2015NY for $20 off until February 15th. You'll be glad you did:)

Now let's get see more of the outfit...

El Día de San Valentín está a la vuelta y de verdad no se lo que voy a hacer ese día. Normalmente soy la que planea todo antes de tiempo pero con la Semana de la Moda de Nueva York aquí  grandes cambios en horarios escolares y de actividad de mis hijas y planes de viaje ha sido un poco difícil planear algo especial para Moe.

Yo probablemente lo voy a llevar a cenar y reservar una experiencia en Cloud 9 Living.  Puede que recuerdes nuestra aventura anterior en un helicóptero por Nueva York (ver aquí). Fue una aventura especial, Moe todavía habla de élla.

Si usted no está seguro qué hacer este Día de San Valentín les recomiendo visitar Cloud 9 Living. Utilice el código VDAY2015NY para recibir $20 de descuento hasta el 15 de Febrero.

Wake Up and Smell The Roses

A fragrance on the top of my favorites list this 2015 is, À la rose by Maison Francis Kurkdjian. 

I was introduced to this amazing fragrance a few weeks ago and since then I have not stopped using it. À la rose is long lasting, light to wear in the morning [one spritz and] you're ready to go. Such a soothing fragrance that is certain to impress. I'm happy to share this fragrance as Valentines Day approaches. It's the prefect perfume to give as a gift or to wear yourself on the very special day/night. 

In the top notes, Damascena rose from Bulgaria, bergamot from Calabria and orange from California offer radiance and a breath of femininity. In the heart notes, an accord of violet and magnolia blossom brings fullness and generosity. Finally, a woody cedar and musk accord mingles with Centifolia rose from Grasse to release an airy and carnal sillage. 

The fragrance retails for $245 and it's available in Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. Shop here

Estoy feliz de compartir esta fragancia como nos aproximamos a el Día de San Valentín, À la rose por Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

Encontre esta increíble fragancia hace unas semanas y desde entonces no he dejado de usarla. À la rosa es de larga duración, puedes usarla en las mañana porque solo necesitas un poquito para  . Tal fragancia relajante que es seguro de impresionar cualquier persona. Es el perfume prefecto para dar como regalo o ponérselos en el día muy especial.

La fragancia se vende por $245 y está disponible en Neiman Marcus y Bergdorf Goodman. Comprela aquí.
