Brooklyn Photoshoot Ideas | Gettin' Groovy Satisfying a Need for Sparkles

Don’t know where to shoot? Brooklyn has so many hidden jems! Here is an article to get your wheels turning on where you may want to start a photoshoot.
When it comes to a photoshoot you don’t need a reason to put on something that stands out. Whether that literally means something that is not solid black, white, or grey, you do you when it comes to a comfort zone. Or it could mean putting on something that is bright yellow, tulle, or showing some skin, go where your inner confidence is beaming.

    Affordable Luxury Finishing Touch | Throw a Broach on It

    We all love to hate outfit repeating on Social Media these days. That goes for accessories too. Some people may think that a designer logo broach is garish, but I am all for it as an investment piece and subtle touch of luxury. Whether you are the type of person to put your designer logo on blast or not, there are various broaches to fill all of your necessary requirements.

  • How to Sleigh SantaCon | NYC SantaCon 2019

    Yes it is named SantaCon, but you will see a handful of elves, reindeer, even someone dressed as a bag of toys or coal. Even if you just have a holiday sweater or a red skirt, that will do. By all means even wear your pajamas! You will see so many people in onesies. SantaCon welcomes all, well (all with a valid ID of the appropriate drinking age).

    When you see someone on Instagram taking photos in multiple outfits on their stories, do you ever wonder where they are changing into these looks? Where are they putting all of the their outfit changes, and how are they carrying all of this stuff around? Ever wonder what time of day they are taking these pictures to have no one in the background?
    The realities of changing looks during a shoot is actually a hassled mess. It’s changing in public bathrooms, a pop-up changing tent (what Shelly uses and carries around for us), changing in cars, or even changing in the wide open streets. I’ve done all of these except for change in a car, but a lot of people and influencers have to do this during NYFW.

    Bonnie Wright has turned her love of film making into an exciting journey that has also led her to become an entrepreneur/designer. On her quest to make a film about our earth, she collaborated with an eco-friendly brand. Fair Harbor is where you can find her swimsuit collection collaboration that is taking conscious clothing to a whole new level.
    We spent the night sipping on Noble Oak Double Oak Bourbon, and nibbling on sushi from Beyond Sushi NYC. Bonnie as well as her business parters gave a small speech and then it was time try on some swimsuits.

    Running through Seaport District| Morgan Stewart Sport| Surprise your Tastebuds 310 Nutrition Chai

    I could never get myself to go running through the streets of Manhattan regularly- even though I consider myself a long-distance runner. In my mind, a flashback of an episode of RHONY comes to mind when I think of a true New Yorker in their element working out- the Real Housewife of New York (only for 2 seasons) Kelly Killoren-Bensimon, in her debut episode running through- wait no, weaving through yellow taxis outside. To me, that is just actually terrifying knowing how aggressive traffic is in NYC and how no one even pays attention even when they are walking. A shoulder shove from a texting walker vs a car wheel rolling over your foot is a very big difference. I went running by the water and through Central Park a few times, but you would never catch me running through traffic.
    Being a Bravo stan, you very well know that I have watched pretty much every show. But, let’s not forget the other reality TV favorite, E! Network. After watching Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, I have been following Morgan Stewart. When I saw her collection with LA Collective: Morgan Stewart Sport, I knew I wanted to try it out. The seamless workout sets were too cute and something that I didn’t already own. I purchased the Andy Set in “Popstar Pink.”

  • SkinStore Prestige Beauty Sets Holiday Party | @ CloudM New York Bowery

    You may have come across SkinStore thought the LIKEtoKNOW.it app, or another affiliate sites. Personally I did not know that this beauty retailer even existed until I started working for it, imagine that! Long story short they are one of Europe’s #1 Beauty retailers. The most similar website that may ring a bell for you would be Dermstore or SpaceNK. Luxury beauty and skincare is their bread and butter. The event at CloudM was all about the Holiday season, showcasing limited edition holiday sets.
