vital tips: my go-to nail salon!

moving to new jersey brought about a whole slew of changes for me – most of them positive – and while it seems like a “first world problem”… finding a new nail salon was high on my list of priorities. i had a “regular” place in the area since i had grown up here, but it paled in comparison to my brooklyn hot spots: so when we settled into our new home, i made it a point not to settle when it came to self-care… and that’s when i found vital tips salon in summit, new jersey!  Continue reading “vital tips: my go-to nail salon!”

you windham, you lose some:

i’ve always wanted to ski. it looks so effortless and exhilarating. the hubby and i took a long weekend in a cabin upstate and hung out at whindham mountain resort, where i took lessons to get my feet wet (COLD and wet!!!). admittedly, my first try was rough – although i didn’t fall once, so apparently my family tells me that’s a “win”. but the real “win” for me was obviously the ski gear. read on for details on what i wore!
