Pink was every girls favorite color at one point in time. Well prom season is the perfect time to fall in love with pink all over again. We really like the “pink selection” from Nordstrom and Lulu’s. You’re bound to be the Molly Ringwald of the after prom nyc event. Check out our favorite “Pretty in Pink” dresses!
You have a dress! You have your shoes! Wait! Don’t forget your clutch. Don’t worry, the only tough decision is which one you’ll get, but that’s what I’m here for! Whether you’re bright and fabulous or classically chic, I have 2 Nina Handbag options for you. For all of my more daring girls, or if you have a black prom dress and want a pop of color, the ‘Lalita-L” clutch in gold is the way to go. But if you just want a hint of sequins, or compliment your neon and patterned dress with a simple clutch, the “Moira-M” in black is all yours!
So now that we have a couple options, what do we put in them?? If you’re like me and over stuff your bag, here’s a tip: only bring essentials! Lash glue ladies, is a must! Trust me, don’t let a pair of fake eyelashes ruin your prom night. Of course your favorite lip combination including chapstick (my favorite accessory)!
Your phone (parents always want updates and pictures)! Some money- for emergencies. Finally, a mini perfume samples to freshen up! Some of my go to products are Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive- it’s so easy to apply for any beginners, Devoted Creations; Pauly D coconut chapstick, Revlon ColorStay Ultimate liquid lipstick in Platinum Petal, Sally Hansen Lip Inflation in clear, and Coach Poppy sample;it’s perfectly light and fresh!
May is here and the flowers are blooming! A great way to be different prom night is to incorporate these May flowers into a crown that will make you stand out. You can even wear the crown to an after prom nyc event. There are a couple of ways you can do this. You can make the crown yourself with real or fake flowers or buy a flower crown, the choice is yours! Here are some of our favorite flower crowns. We hope you love them as much as we do!
Here’s a tutorial on how to make a flower crown with fake flowers.
You can also buy a flower crown from these Etsy websites:
Clutch Essentials for Prom Night!
It’s prom night and you don’t want to carry around a bunch of unnecessary things! Grab a clutch that matches your dress and fill it with the following items:
-blotting sheets, you don’t want to look oily in pictures
-a makeup setting spray/mist, it’ll refresh your makeup
-lipgloss, pick a color that compliments your makeup/dress and you’ll be able to reapply throughout the night
-chapstick, just in case your lips get dry
-matte powder and travel brush, once again to get rid of shine and make your makeup last longer
-small perfume, so you smell nice all night long
-phone, an obvious one but you’ll be able to snap pictures with friends and instagram them all of course
Feel free to add a few other things or leave out blotting sheets if you have dry skin, etc. Hopefully this post will give you some inspiration on what to bring with you to your prom and help prevent any mishaps throughout the dance.

It’s that time of the year again ladies, Yep…time to get those bodies in shape for the summer!!! With prom right around the corner, who wouldn’t want to get in the best shape for prom AND the summer. Say hello to some workout tips that will give you an idea of where to start your work out. I promise if you follow these tips you will not be let down, I am living proof!
Throughout the course of the winter I spent my days working out and eating right. I was preparing to compete for Miss New York USA and I became obsessed with fitness and being healthy. I ate clean,and exhausted my body by working out 5 days a week. (And ended up placing in Top 10!) Essentially what I did was a dramatic lifestyle change. Don’t get me wrong…it was tough, exhausting,draining and all of the above. But I was able to develop this lovely thing called Will Power! Being able to say NO to a slice of pizza when all of your friends are ordering in was definitely not my favorite thing to do, but I did it because I knew I wanted to look and feel my best.
With so many different ways to loose weight and feel good, I found it really helpful to create my own routine. If your like me you need to try different things until you figure out what works for you. I am constantly trying new things in search of the best workout. Going to the gym is great, but I get bored….quick…..SO, I usually need to take somebody with me so we can create some kind of competition at who does what best. (I’m a naturally competitive person..woops:)) Aside from getting my cardio workout at the gym, I try my best to do any of the following workouts.
Insanity: If you’ve seen the infomercial and heard things about his workout the name speaks for it’s self. INSANE, but effective and FAST. If you are ready to turn your life around and need a real push, this if for you.
Zumba: Is an amazing cardio exercise and a lot of fun! If you like to dance and enjoy good music gather a group of friends and join the dance party. It’ll be the most exciting work out you’ve ever done.
Kick-Boxing: If you want to see results fast and need a more structured style of working out, Kick-boxing is right for you. Not only have classes been proven to make you loose weight, they serve as an amazing stress reliever. Besides, who doesn’t need to punch something every now and then? LOL
Yoga: An amazing way to relax and create lean flexible muscles. Simply amazing. If you can tolerate heat, try Bikram Yoga. Thank me later
I am also a big fan of Youtube, there are over 500 channels of workouts you can do at home. Great for anyone who was a crazy schedule but still wants to squeeze a workout in.
Stay tuned for my blog posts next week on Green Juice’s, hand picked workouts, keeping the weight off and working out in style .
Happy Sweating Dears!!
