Another week – another sidewalk style! Here are all my favorites from last week!


Alicia Vikander always looks like she just rolled out of bed with a fresh face! HATE HER – but love this look. The red turtle neck sweater is the perfect pop of color to go with these black jeans and flats. It is such relaxed look for a girl running errands on a Saturday.


Sienna Miller always has the best sidewalk style! Her look to me is that cool mom who doesn’t work but has so much to do before picking her kids up from school. The girlfriend jeans are what make this look cozy, the combo of the striped collar shirt under the blue sweater means business. And the red Gucci flats (just like Alicia) give the look a pop of color.


Jessica Chastain was leaving the airport and on her way to Cannes probably. Nothing I love more than a crisp white button down and a blue jean with a matching white sneaker! Throwing a leopard trench coat over this outfit set it all off and adding the Stella McCartney Shoulder bag makes this airport look chic!

Last week was all about making a bold statement with one piece! What will the next sidewalk style?

Until next time,

I have a mantra and it is to always treat myself (probably why I am poor)! Anyway, I treat myself to a bi-weekly manicure and pedicure! Since I was about 9 years I have always had my nails done – it was just an outing that my mom and I always did together.

Flash forward and I am now 24 years old with my own go to salons and go to colors! It has become my favorite things to do, whether its to meet friends to catch up or to go alone in between errands!

Recently I have become OBSESSED with the Essie Gel Couture – it is similar to a regular manicure but last 10 – 14 days without damaging your nails the way regular gel does!  It is long lasting nail polish that keeps your nails healthy, I mean talk about a win – win.

Do not worry about not finding the perfect color because Essie has more than enough options. And if the color you want has not been made into the gel couture yet, no worries! You can use regular Essie polish and use the Gel Couture top coat! I know, I know you owe me your first child. Here are a few of my go to colors:

JNOLAISM FACT: Go buy your own top coat of the Essie Gel Couture from the drug store and keep it with you! Bring it with you to the nail salon that they do not charge you extra #SCAMMING

As we all know per INSTAGRAM – wedding season is near! I am sure most of you have plenty of wedding invites on your kitchen table just piling up. Once you hit 24 it seems as if everyone is engaged and yet you are the one in need of a dress.

Many weddings means MANY DRESSES – once you wear one dress you cannot wear another and if you do YOU CANNOT BE PHOTOGRAPHED. Look, I dont make the rules – I just follow them. So because I know what it is like to endlessly search for the perfect dress, I am sharing with you all my favorite for wedding SZN’18!

My go-to website for vacation or events is – they are pretty pricey but when they have a sale, MAN DO THEY HAVE A SALE!

There is nothing I love more than fashion- high fashion is amazing BUT street style is even better. Especially when it comes to celebrities, it is a chance to see them in day -to -day clothes (for the most part). To see their fashion style and not their stylist!

I know that the keyword for these looks would be ‘Street Style’ but I like ‘Sidewalk Style’ better. A celebrity with a coffee in hand and a signature outfit is my guilty pleasure. Here are a few of my favorite looks from last week! Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 9.59.25 PM.png

If you know me, then you know that my girl crush on DAKOTA JOHNSON is real AF! I love everything about her effortless style. This all black combo of leggings, tank and sneakers is so relatable that it hurts!

What is more comfortable than converse and a leopard print jacket? NOTHING!!! ZENDAYA has the perfect idea for airport cozy – you always need a good sneaker and a coat to keep you warm on your Antartica flight.

Screen Shot 2018-04-29 at 10.26.52 PM.pngQUEEN of the sidewalk style this week goes to no one other than GIGI HADID herself! Another all black outfit that wins, she went for the relaxed trendy look. The cropped sweatshirt and cutoff sweatpants scream ‘off-duty model’.

Who is your favorite sidewalk style celeb looks?

Emmy’s Red Carpet

Unless you live under a rock – last night was the Emmy’s! Now I don’t always watch the awards, I usually care more about the red carpet. BUT when it comes to the Emmy’s I have to because I am a crazy TV watcher. Also, depending on the host I can judge if I will enjoy it or not. Last night I was more than pleased with Jimmy Kimmel’s performance and just the night over all.

Now back to whats important, the fashion! When the night started I wasn’t too happy with what I was seeing. I felt like I was at my junior prom all over again – it was a lot of sequins. Little by little it kept getting better and there were many that shined like stars last night.

Here they are:

Anika Noni Rose – I have no idea what show she is on  but this white is beautiful on her! It is simple but still makes a statement.


Emmy Rossum – FYI she doesn’t have a stylist she dressers herself and works with designers. Emmy always looks beautiful but why hasn’t she been nominated for Shameless??? The white was the hot ticket last night – it works for the ones who are not nominated because even though it wasn’t their night you will remember what they wore!


Allison Janney – Always a bridesmaid never a bride. Last night she was the Belle of the freaking ball!! This Badgley Mischka dress was stunning and she looked amazing in it!


Kristen Bell – Secret garden is that you? This Zuhair Murad with the deep v-neck makes this dress sexy while still staying elegant.


Sarah Paulson – I am a believer of “less is more” but last night was Sarah’s night to shine and she killed it in The People vs. OJ and she has to step on that red carpet and turn heads. That is exactly what she did in this Prada ensemble. 


Traci Ellis Ross – When you are Diana Ross daughter you can’t help but slay! Traci really glowed on the carpet in this Ralph Lauren one shoulder cut out.


Priyanka Chopra – Sometimes red on the red carpet is a little too much for me but Chopra really made it her own in this Jason Wu gown. She is definitely  one to be watching out for – she was every where during fashion and even though she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy that hasn’t stopped her.


These are some of my favorite looks from last night! Who was your choice?

Until the next Red Carpet.

Hello #NYFW

It is official, New York Fashion Week is happening people! Models are running past you on the street, traffic is backed up more than usual and everyone is looking their best – hoping to get a street style shot or the very least in the background of one. This particular Fashion Week is bittersweet for me because it is the first one I will not be working any shows. I have gotten use to running around with a head set on, clipboard and cell phone in hand. I miss the public relations side of fashion shows, it may be hectic and stress you out to the point that you may need a therapist but that’s what I love about it!


Enough about me… let’s get back to the wonders of Fashion Week! So it all started with Kanye West and Tom Ford, talk about starting out with a freaking bang. #YeezySeason4 was the only hashtag that mattered on Wednesday – besides the #AppleEvent of course. Whether they were praising him or bashing him, Kanye was the talk of the city (media) for his outrageous show.  A few hours later that chatter became all about Tom Ford and his presentation hosted at the Four Seasons. His guest list read like an invite to a night at the Oscars with nothing but A-Listers (See New York Times Article).


It is clear that even though  NYFW’16 has only begun it is off to a crazy start! I can’t imagine what else is in store this upcoming week. And if you are someone who isn’t into Fashion Week or think you are “too cool” for it. Then why are you even on my page ?

Pore You!

If you follow me on Snapchat (if you don’t you should!) you know that I am a lover of beauty products. You can always catch me in a face mask whether bought from the store or DIY. Being that I have been getting older – insert crying emoji face – I have found it even more important to take care of my skin.

Last month I found a new love… Where is Pore? No I amImage result for my pores are huge gif
not asking you, I know where a pore is, that is the name of the brand! It is amazing and probably the best thing I have ever done to my face! Just a little background on my pores… they are TERRIBLE and I feel like everyone can see them. I was on the search for something that would help me and make me look as fresh as a daisy .

Well, this was it – the Hot & Cool Pore Foam Cleansing Duo basically was screaming my name in Sephora ( like many things do when I am shopping). When I saw it I knew for some reason it would be a life saver. So I did what I always do – pulled out my handy dandy iPhone and googled the brand and product to see the reviews. After about 5 minutes of browsing many sites I picked up my new companion and headed to the register.

I waited a while before using since I had just done a face mask that was suppose to help my pores – it didn’t do much for them. I decided it was time to give this cleansing duo a try but before I went all the way in I recruited (begged) my boyfriend to try it with me. I wanted to see if this really worked and not just on me but someone with a different skin type.

Let’s just say it was an experience – not the mask but doing it with my boyfriend. We did the steam foam first (that’s what the box tells you to do) and because we are a little slow we both got it in our eyes and nearly went blImage result for my eyes gifind! BUT once it was completely washed off – of our face and EYES – we noticed a HUGE difference. Both of us were practically glowing as if we were pregnant – which we ARE NOT! In the morning we did the cool foam an it was 10 times the glow and our faces were so smooth!

Since then I have done this mask two more times. For me, I like doing it Sunday night and Monday morning. Makes me feel good to start my week looking as if I am 16 again and don’t need make up to cover up my dark circles. So if anyone – ladies or gentlemen – are looking for something to open up those pores and look like you are in high-school again – the good years not the bad ones – then this is for you!

You’re Welcome,
