MSL is Getting a Face Lift!

Hi Everyone!  I just wanted to let you know that MSL is currently getting a face lift (yay!) and that is the reason there has not been much fresh content posted.  Stay tuned however! The new site should be ready to go in a few weeks and there will be lots of great stuff.  Can't wait to share more.  In the meantime, make sure you are following me on Instagram for real time fashion, food, and travel updates!

Hi All!  Pardon the delay in my posting--I have been working on remodeling the website, so my content hasn't been as frequent, but believe me it will be worth the wait!  In the meantime, I thought I'd share some fun moments from my weekend.  My parents are in town and it has presented us with some fun opportunities to eat in the new restaurants and explore new places. 

The weekend began with some lovely cocktails Saturday evening, then continued the next morning at brunch.  I found a Lower East Side gem via Instagram called Dudley's (see food pics above) and it was seriously delicious.  What you see in the full table picture (from right to left) is a hamburger with fries with an aioli dipping sauce (get extra fries!), avocado toast with an added egg and smoked salmon, a smoked salmon benedict, and last and certainly most delicious: banana pancakes.  The pancakes were a serious treat--they look delicious and they are delicious, you must try those if you head to Dudley's.  They have a gooey interior and a crispy exterior, which makes for the perfect combination.  All the food was accompanied by some Bloody Mary's, because what's brunch without a cocktail (or two)!  

After brunch we strolled the Lower East Side and found some colorful street art, which I clearly had to pose in front of.  The whole Lower East Side is like a walking Instagram: every turn presented a photo opportunity, if you're a traveller or someone who lives in NYC and just hasn't made it to the LES in awhile, check out this corner.  So much to do, see, and eat!

This is just part 1 of the weekend post..more to come!

A Beautifying Weekend

I spent Saturday afternoon getting beautified with my favorite hair colorist and stylist at Butterfly Studios and then I ventured over to Benefit in Soho to get my brows done!  (Any girl can attest—a day of hair and brows is always a good day!)

At Benefit, I was able to try the new Realsies “Killer Color” lash hugging gel eye liner in dark green—which I loved.  The touch of green is not super noticeable but really brings out the color in your eyes.  It’s an edgy alternative to the black.  The Realsies eyeliner in general is a make-up must have.  It’s easy to apply, goes on smoothly and has lasting power. 

Hope you like the snaps from my weekend and below are some links to where you can buy my summer attire!
