Mercedes Benz Fashion Week NYFALL 2011 – Mara Hoffman

16 Feb

Mara Hoffman’s clothes remind of you of a world-class traveler, chic and destined to be fabulous; wherever you may land in the world.

It could be right here in NYC,  a trip to Paris or in your neighborhood!  Imagine showing up in your child’s PTA meeting with one of her sweater jackets, you’ll be sooooo chic <my favorite>!    

Her “From Sacred Mother to Warrior”collection has a mystery and colorful palette!   Mostly known for her swimwear, she is also making her mark in setting fashion trends!

If you like to be different, her creativity in clothes will help in your choices!

Let me know what you think about the shoe boots!!  Running out the door!  Enjoy!

Taking Your Lunch in Style!

16 Feb

“I’ve been brown bagging it! Every morning, making my lunch! It’s boring!  I don’t want to carry a kid lunch tote!  Do you have any  recommendations? Donna from Brooklyn, NY

Like many, you have decided to forgo the highly priced lunches and brown bag it to save money.

I also have done the same thing!  By taking my lunch for 2 – 3 days out of the week, I’m able to put 6 more gallons of gas in the car!

Bringing your lunch….it’s really cool to do so.    And now there are many companies who would like to promote your sandwich in a fashionable stylish way!<smile>.

In late December, I myself did too buy a lunch tote from the Container Store by BUILT NY!

They are known for their stylish laptop slings bags, but have also provided the same fashion statement with their lunch totes.  They also have a lunch combo pack, where you have a lunch tote and bottle holder.

I would recommend you to go to their site and see if you see something you like!

After browsing, remember the totes can be used not only for lunch… bottle warmer, hold ice packs and even keeping straight out of the oven muffins warm too!

I hope your brown bagging becomes more fun!  Also, go to for some great “lunch bag” recipes too!
