As all of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month. Everyone has been affected in one way or another, by this disease.  Throughout the month of October, I will be posting different blogs on how you can help raise funds to fight this cancer.

Today, I'm highlighting the PINK RIBBON PRODUCTS

The Estee Lauder Companies' Breast Cancer Awareness campaign has been going strong since its inception in 1992.  Fifteen of the Estee Lauder Beauty companies have launched Pink Ribbon Products. Pink Ribbon Products are beauty items that you can purchase whose proceeds go directly towards breast cancer research.  Estee Lauder beauty partners with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), and that's where the funds will go.

Participating brands include Tom Ford, Prescriptives, La Mer, Smashbox, Origins, Clinique, Jo Malone, Bobbi Brown, Bumble & Bumble and more. I'm detailing the products below and letting you know exactly how much of your purchase becomes a donation.  The largest donations will come from the Estee Lauder Pink Perfection Color Collection (100% of the proceeds), and Jo Malone (which will make a lump sum donation of $45,000 irrespective of product purchases), and Tom Ford Beauty which will donate a lump sum of $50,000.

Mustard is one of my favorite colors to wear, especially in the Fall.  You'll generally find me in jeans and a tee, which is basically this outfit, except I layered the textured yellow top over the most comfy white tank.  I'm a big fan of the rosette details on this top, and maybe that's why I didn't really mind that I paired the colors black and yellow - which in my eyes is a major bumble bee 'no, no.'

Walking through this beautiful NYC burough, after TIBI, we stumbled upon quaint courtyards and streets. They had character and were a great backdrop for photographs. LAlso visited the Highline, which was crowded and buzzing with tourists and locals alike. This area of New York City is, like most, is alive with great culture, street style and food. After these shots, we headed over to The Spotted Pig, where we waited only about 10 minutes before having one of the best Cuban sandwiches I'd eaten in my life (and both my parent's are Cuban AND I was born and raised in Miami; my endorsement says a lot). By the way, the bloody Mary's aren't half bad, either. This little spot earned it's Michelin star in my foodie heart.

New York Fashion Week 2016

Pamella Roland show
Spending time in NYC always makes me feel happy. I've loved the city since I was young. Not unlike most, I feel the energy of New York and each time I go, I wonder why it's been so long since I've last been.  Attending New York Fashion Week was one of the best things I could have done. I learned so much on the trip, and was very fortunate in so many aspects.

I had an amazing seat at Pamela Rolland next to the two nicest women. I was able to capture amazing images at Custo Barcelona.  I marveled at the beautiful colors and patterns at Cynthia Rowley.  I met Charlotte Tilbury and Pat McGrath, two of the industry's top beauty goddesses, sat across from Nigel Barker, photographed inspiring fashion, ate at the best places (without waiting?!) and was lucky enough to have the best friends in the city who let me use their beautiful apartment while they were out of town. It was an amazing experience and I was blessed by the way that each day of my trip progressed.
