A lovely Saturday brunch

 I've become a regular French Macaron connoisseur and all the tasty treats are delicious my favorite right now are from Kafe Leopold. I couldn't resist grabbing a few after a yummy brunch this weekend. The macarons are light, fluffy and slightly chewy and the filling is delicate and filled with flavor. My favorite flavors include the Blueberry Olive Oil, Green Apple Coriander, Lemon and Basil, and Chocolate. Sooo yummy!   

We also had one of my favorite breakfasts in the city with my absolute favorite meal: 15-year aged Serrano Ham in thinly sliced flakes, a perfectly fried egg, scallions and divine truffle grits. This is perfection! Not a bad way to spend a sunny Saturday in the city.

How did you spend your weekend??

A Charming and Rustic New England Wedding Affair

My dear friend's Pete and Emily got married recently in the picturesque New England town of Booth Bay Harbor, ME over the Fourth of July weekend. The venue was absolutely stunning and all the personalized details and rustic chic decor made the whole weekend unforgettable. Check out some of the photos from this magazine-ready affair:

Wedding Makeup by The Beauty Buff!

I recently did makeup for my college friend, Deb's wedding. The wedding was last fall at The Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C. It was so much fun to work together and Deb was a beautiful bride! To compliment the silver sheen in her dress we used a shimmery silver shadow on the lids with a neutral taupe in the crease. I then outlined her eyes on the top and bottom with black liner and added half a strip of fake lashes. I added contour and definition to her cheeks with a mixture of bronze and a bright pink blush and then added a pink/plum shade to emphasize her lips. To create a clean, even palette for her face, I airbrushed a primer and foundation using Luminess Air. Deb looked spectacular and I was so happy to help her create her perfect look for her special day! 

A special thanks to Procopio Photography for the beautiful photographs!
