Take a Breather

If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine, it is lethal. – Paulo Coelho





I mean taking a break in so many ways, too. Since twisting my ankle last week (upstate), I’ve been laying low. That has given me some down time to do some reflecting and strategizing. I have most of the photos edited and ready to post from my jaunt to the Finger Lakes! Before we get into that, I wanted to give my blog a break from endless travel posts. I took a look the other day and I really miss having more of my style posts mixed it (though I’m still shopping just as much). This year I will practice balance in life and content. Spring has finally decided to grace our presence, and with that, all the extra feels of renewal and refresh. So here I am with a look from the time I visited Erno Laszlo‘s NYC beauty institute. It reminded me of new beginnings and being laundry fresh? LOL, who knows!

Erno Laszlo

I’ve had the pleasure of learning about this skincare brand through my mother. When I was younger, I remember seeing the black cleansing bar on top of the bathroom sink and was so intrigued. It was her favorite skincare line at the time. She has always raved about the sea mud exfoliating mask as well. I remember searching for it again in Bergdorf’s for her, then “borrowing” it forever. So, when I was invited to the New York Institute, I was beyond ecstatic (as seen below). The place is gorgeous, and members can get fully customized facials. I went for mine in December (as seen in my vlog). It was a wonderful experience, and if you’re in the market, it’s the perfect place to tend to your skin. My favorite product from them now is the hydrating memory sleep mask. It’s a travel lifesaver. I will be compiling my beauty products for good travel skin, soon. In the meantime, check out a quick photo tour of the space below.











Looking forward to springtime and balancing life.
