This time around it wasn’t a typical stroll in the city, we went one of the top spots in the Bronx for #graffiti, I have always been a huge fan of the art form with all the colors and grittiness of it. So what inspired my look? Color of course and this #Stevemadden sandals I fell in love with over the internet I found them strolling for a camera on Amazon of all places, I keep everything else in the look pretty toned down but with a pop of color on my clutch. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and all the color!
This past weekend was a mixture of running errands and shopping for my upcoming trip to Europe! I really cannot wait for Monday, it can not get here soon enough. I love a pop of color on the shoes! I kept the palette pretty basic and opted for color on my heels and purse. The heels are from Zara, purse from Pacsun a steal at only $10! Pants from H&M and Shirt from Marshalls. I will definitely be packing the heels and bag for my trip.

This past Sunday was really lovely in NY! We have really been looking forward to warmer weather. I’ve been dying to wear these new yellow sandals I picked up from #justfab. I know theres alot of color here with the shoes and floral pants from #zara so I toned it down with a army green parka from AU California. I hope you guys love the colorful look! How are you adding color to your wardrobes this #spring? xxoo MN
Fifty Shades of Orange
Tropical breezes and sun kissed beaches is what I was dreaming of on this trip to the Mexican Rivera but not everyday was perfect weather and on those days I needed to make my own sunshine! The colors of Mexico were beautiful so my playsuit from Charlotte Russe, Sunnies from Forever 21 and Sandals from Wetseal filled the bill for a Sunny afternoon with a stroll on the beach.
Hey Loves heres the latest shoot I styled for Elegant Magazine featuring models from Adam Models and Fenton Moon all the details on the looks are on the photos. We wanted to portray a twisted trio entangled in a love affair…scandalous! ;-) Hope you like! xx MN
The Power of the Pump!
Pumps are sexy and versatile, pair them with a flirty skirt or jeans and the heels always dress up a look! Three out of the four pumps here are from Zara. I always buy a half size up for pumps for comfort. One classic look to dress up is a fitted blazer, silk tee and skinny jeans always does the trick for a night out with the girls or dinner with your love, pumps always up the anti! Some of my favorite sites to shoe shop are are www.heels.com www.ruelala.com www.shopstyle.com www.zara.com what are some of yours? xoxo MN
Grilled Salmon & Pineapple with Avocado Basil Sauce
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil, plus some sprigs, for garnish
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
1 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon, plus some sprigs, for garnish
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Four 4-ounce skinless salmon fillets, each about 1 inch thick
Four 1/2-inch-thick round slices (rings) of pineapple, preferably fresh
Avocado Dressing, recipe follows
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 large lemon)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh tarragon
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small clove garlic, smashed
1/2 avocado, diced
Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.
Whisk the oil, chopped basil, chives, chopped tarragon, salt and pepper in a small bowl to blend. Brush the salmon and pineapple slices with the herb mixture.
Cook the salmon until cooked through and still pink inside, about 4 minutes per side. Cook the pineapple until slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Transfer 1 pineapple slice to each plate and arrange a piece of salmon slightly overlapping it. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the Avocado Dressing over each piece of fish. Garnish with basil and tarragon sprigs and serve.
Combine the lemon juice, basil, chives, olive oil, tarragon, anchovy paste if using, salt, pepper, garlic and avocado in a food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of water and process until smooth. Cover the dressing and let stand for at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour for the flavors to blend.
If using canned pineapple, make sure to blot it dry very well before grilling it.
