Amp Up Your Style with TRESemmé @Walmart #VMAStyle #TRESemmé #AmpUpYourStyle

Special thanks to Global Influence for sponsoring this post. 

Yesterday, I was transformed into a retro glamour queen thanks to Vavoom Pinups. The team of stylists pin curled and poufed my hair, opened up my eyes with stunning retro makeup and then hairsprayed it all in place...I could hardly recognize myself in the mirror! I'm always amazed by the effect that a great hairstyle and makeup can have on the spirit. I'll be sharing my photos soon!

Matzo Ball Soup at Manny's Deli

Today I took my daughter to Manny's Deli after her morning ballet class.


Autumn is inching its way towards us, and we woke up to what felt like a crisp fall day. The matzo ball soup was so comforting. My daughter is turning five and it is now an absolute pleasure to have her as dining company; she enjoyed the hustle and bustle of Manny's and the cafeteria style service.

I don't want summer to end (at all!) but I do look forward to fall, a time of year when I love to both cook at home and try out new (and old) dining spots, and I can't wait to take this little gal with me as company. But that's enough about fall. Here's to a few more weeks of summer!
