engagement season is in full swing….

I cant wait to see what oliva will be waring its safe to say she will be absolutely amazing looking.I wonder if she will stick to tradition in a white gown or bend the rules like recent celbs dressing in pink such as Jessica beil and kaley cuoco

Never the less this gown will be one to keep our eyes PEELED for! However with Kim Kardsashians recent fashion seriously being quite fabulous lately, well  despite the god awful hand painted bag her fiancé presented her with on xmas day , I think kim and oliva could be battling it out for the best dress bride this up coming year.

product review – Canon eos rebel

unnamed-1

I was told ,everyone usually chooses a path between Nikon and Canon, I chose Canon. The reason why i chose canon is because there so much easier to use.( apparently, i am nothing shy of a technical retard and the only reason i know how to do anything is because of patient people showing me(aka mark k.))

This model came out this month and is the  smallest SLR on the market. Which is great for those of us who carry our cameras in our handbags(like me :-) ) . This camera is about 2/3 the size of the T5i, ( no fuking clue what that is but you might :-) mark just told me :-) ) Yet has many of the same capabilities (although the ISO only goes up to 12800 instead of 25600 for super low-light). Since it’s a new camera, it will set you back about $650 for the body only (you can also get used lenses for new cameras to save $$ or get a 50mm lens for about $90.) I would say that with this camera and a Macbook Air, you’ll have the ultimate compact blogger’s kit!

I truely love my canon and am the luckiest girl alive to be gifted it:-) again THANK YOU MARK KENNA.. Like i said i am nothing short of trying to print paper from the toaster and wondering why the t.v wont work……. before pulging it in. Canons are amazing and take such beautiful pictures, if i can work it you can… get going #snaphappy #canonforlife

I WONT BE HOME FROM CHRISTMAS

This will be my Third chrimbo state side, it honestly gets worse every year and I swear to the lord above this is my last year staying in New York on Christmas when all my loved ones and family are there.

Christmas here  is  amazing and I am extremely grateful that i get to spend each year here happy and healthy and thankfully surrounded by great people, but next year I AM GOING HOME……. :-)

With out further a-due i decided to do a  blog post on my favorite airport and travel wear.

PWR TRAVEL MUST HAVES AND DO’S-

1. I know its hard but try not over pack, plan out your outfits and dont bring things home you will NOT wear ( for example 2 summers ago i went to ireland for 3 weeks with 3 pairs of sunglasses……………………. like touched is a understatement it rained every day i was home)

2. TRY TRY TRY have one bag check in and one bag hand luggage and small hand bag.

3. keep your hand bag light. your lugging it around on your shoulder for 3 hours before you board, make sure carry onis on wheels:-) so much easier.

4. wear easy brezzy clothing that doesnt’ restrict you, wear socks or at least bring a pair in your hand bag as the plain gets cold.

5. scarfs are a great airport companion as you can wrap your self up on the plain.

6. CHILLAX AND HAVE A BEER OR GLASS OF WINE… and look forward to your family time :-)

7. always try look effortless but cute and fresh, don’t ware to much make up it gan get patchy and dried out with the air con on the plain, and you never no who will be picking you up from the airport :-) Try a hydrating foundation, i love smash box hydration foundation.

 

take a look at my favorite celebrity airport fashion, safe flight and merry christmas love meg-

I heart new york christmas windows:-)

Last night on my way home form work i decided to try out my new Canon eos rebel that mark bought me for my birthday/christmas this year.

I work right next to 5th avenue so i strolled across to share with you my FAVORITE christmas window of all time, for years i have passed up and down and around the corner of 57th street in aw at the windows of Bergdorf Goodman.

IMG_0202

every year there is something more outrageous more spectacular and more heart stopping, jaw droopingly beautiful. So now that i have my lovely canon i decided to take a stroll over and snap some shops of the windows to share with those who have not seen them yet  or those who do not live in new york.

IMG_0223

so first things first here is the the story behind the windows, i found this article on the BG Website-

“If you’re one to admire our holiday each year, you know that we’re not one to celebrate the obvious. David Hoey and our windows team prefer dazzling with the deceptively simple and quiet element of surprise. This year our Fifth Avenue windows imagined a variety of time-honored holidays cast in a frozen landscape. windowsHolidays on Ice, explained Hoey, “give(s) equal billing to a year’s worth of holidays—not only the wintry ones. All of them will be icebound. Even the Fourth of July.” This isn’t the first time Hoey has celebrated classic American holidays; once our 58th street dedicated themselves to June’s Flag Day while in years past Fifth Avenue adopts a windowswitchy October splendor.

ARBOR DAY — Imagine a split-level forest clearing. The vista and joie de vivre speak a sunny April day, however icicles cling to the ten-foot tree’s bare, porcelain branches. Dressed in Alexander McQueen Resort, our lady casually sits, surrounded by trembling crystal leaves and flowers. You almost can imagine the porcelain fauna (ranging from butterflies to a Komodo dragon) bursting into animated, spontaneous song. Using one of his favorite techniques, Hoey gives us a glance of the icy roots creeping below the joyful, grassy scene.

FASHION IN THE FOURTH OF JULY — Polar patriotic pageantry (with a feather on top). Featuring a full-scale Colonial building facade replica, this frozen scape positions our lady in Rodarte; her dapper soldiers sport Thom Browne New York. This is a parade of patriotism: flags, bunting and pennants fly from above while an icy eagle spreads its wings.

APRIL FOOL’S DAY — Each year one of our holiday exhibits a favorite visual trick. Last year’s windowsFollies sported a bird’s eye perspective; April Fool’s Day pulled out all of the stops with a less-than-subtle prank: an upside-down garden party. Everything — from the swinging primate and dancing bear topiaries to the ragged rows of icicles — are upside-down. How does our mannequin’s Oscar de la Renta gown defy gravity’s weight? That’s a secret she’ll never tell.topsy turvy

VALENTINE’S DAY — In classic maximalism style, Valentine’s Day is a rosy feast for the eyes. This luminous, cave-like boudoir is a blooming confection of roses, lilies, pastries and bon-bons, jewels and a glistening, icicle-laden chandelier. Frosty cherubs and poodles tend to our Giambattista Valli Couture and Oscar de la Renta-clad mannequin who demurely sits at her ice-carved writing desk. We only can dream of the breathless love letters she pens.

HALLOWEEN — Spirits are aloft in this glittering, high Gothic masquerade. Behind a Swarovski crystal-flecked spider web, you’ll find a towering haunted mansion glazed in black ice. What ghostly secrets does it hold? This meticulously-crafted château is a replica of the immense Vanderbilt mansion that once marked Fifth Avenue and 58th Street (it once was the largest home in America). Playing with scale and tricks of the eye, a nine-foot mannequin peeks out from the fortress’ top while smaller mannequins hide in the shadows. Honoring holiday window’ tradition, evening designer Naeem Khan fashioned a custom onyx plumed gown to dress this long-limbed subject.windows

 

this is how they reviled the winter windows this year- STUNNING AND JUST BREATH TAKING.
