Axe Throwing in Brooklyn

IMG_1215.jpg

Yes, axe throwing! And believe it or not, it wasn’t my first time giving it a try. My brother in law manages Hatchets & Hops, Buffalo’s first axe throwing club. I’ve stopped in a few times to just watch and even throw. I just have to say how fun and entertaining the entire experience is! And it’s catching on! There’s more to be coming to the big Apple soon. It's definitely different and harder than expected, but if you're looking for a group date night or an adult birthday gathering this definitely checks a ton of boxes! We actually first discovered this spot when attending a friends 30th last winter and once we moved to Brooklyn we realized it’s so close to us now. I'm not "axepert" but happy to share the details. I recommend KickAxe Throwing in Brooklyn or Hatchets and Hops in Buffalo, NY. It’s a great indoor winter activity to plan with groups and there’s even a bar and snacks at most locations. 

This night I just dressed casual, comfortable shoes are best but I’d be lieing if I said I’ve never thrown in heels 👠

Love the bright magenta of this oversized cardigan from Express and this is my go camisole top I know I'll be wearing into spring and summer again. It has adorable back detailing and also goes well under leather jackets and blazers. My necklace is from bauble bar and I also found two other great sale finds in the y style here and here.

Winter Coat & Boot Roundup

Happy New Year everyone! 2017 was one of the best years for me in a while, I was married in August and celebrated throughout the year leading up to the big day with generous and thoughtful friends and family. Surrounded by love all year through and holding onto that into 2018. I can't wait to see what it has in store for us as newly weds both personally and professionally!

Now that we're back into the swing of refreshing ourselves for the new year and past the holidays I thought I'd share some amazing winter wear items as we continue to brave the coldest months of winter. Many of the pieces I've used year after year and they last! I love the longer length of a winter coat to combat the wind and cover my legs, since I freeze easily ( I swear I was not built for living in cold places!) My coat has gotten me through my third season in New York and just taking care of it with routine cleanings help.  It's down so here and there I shed some feathers so next year may be time for a replacement. I always search the end of season sales for something I can keep in my closet for the next winter as an investment.

Softest Eyelash Cardigan

This eyelash long cardigan sweater is thick, warm, and so so soft ! I couldn't resist the contrast of the black and white with the plush texture. The best part is I found it at 60 % off! It was the perfect layer to wear walking around the city over the weekend while we had family in town for a wedding.

We took advantage of the sunny weather and played tourist for the day. I couldn't believe how developed and changed the water front is from Brookfield Place to Battery Park downtown.
