Governors Island: Gotham’s Natural Oasis

11/08/2017

Governors Island: Gotham's Natural Oasis Hey Wanderlusters! I’m sorry for the long hiatus. If you follow me on social media you probably already know how I’ve been spending my days since school started. I’m a busy fashion design student at the Fashion Institute of Technology, doing my best to juggle a freelance position in sales, endless school projects, and blogging. Unfortunately fashion design academics leave me with little time for nurturing my Wanderlust. These days I spend most of my times under fluorescent lighting. Talk about moody vibes all the time.

Governors Island: Gotham's Natural Oasis

The free times I get I’d much rather spend it outdoors with Mother Nature’s offsprings in the natural light. Governors Island: Gotham’s Natural Oasis in the New York City harbor remains my beloved leisure spot for outdoor contemplation and relaxation. Did you get to quench your nature driven wanderlust spirit with a visit to the island this season? For the first time since its opening, the not so secret ice-cream cone-shaped island extended their 2017 season till  Halloween. The season’s farewell held a full list of events ideal for all ages that concluded on October 31st. I didn’t get to live the Spooky experience because I was home working on midterm projects and studying for exams. But, I did get to go before right before the end of the season’s goodbye. Follow along as I stroll along the memorable areas of Governors Island. An island built for the future.  Continue Reading…

Saying Au Revoir to Summer 2017 with DJP’s #ArtofFun in the Rockway

09/23/2017

Thank you to Donald J Pliner for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

Saying Au Revoir to Summer 2017 with DJP's #ArtofFun in the Rockway

I couldn’t think of a better way of saying au revoir to summer 2017 than with one more stroll around Katharina Grosse’s “Colors of the Rockaway”. A public art installation presented by MoMA PS1 on the Fort Tilden Historic District; a former U.S. Army installation on the coastal area of Queens, NY. I took my last summer stroll wearing my FAIRY sandals, one of my favorite styles from the Donald J Pliner’s #ArtOfFun spring/summer 2017 collection.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the seasons’ changes, September 21st marked the official end of summer 2017 throughout the Northern Hemisphere of the World. The Fall Equinox is in session, and with that is the transition in our wardrobe from lightweight fabrications, and open toe shoes, to layered cozy garments and weatherproof footwear.

Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur Is The Holy Grail Behind My No Makeup Look

Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur Is The Holy Grail Behind My No Makeup Look

Ah September! My birth month is always one of the busiest and most stressful months of the year. After working full-time in Fashion marketing and sales for several years, I took the leap to continue to the full-time BFA Fashion Design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology. I decided to return to school to pursuit a new degree because my Fashion Marketing and Merchandising degree was no longer providing me with the creative options I was yearning for. Needless to say I began the first week of school with assigned projects, and endless amount of work and research. In between all of that I was working backstage during NYFW with no free evenings or Weekends. Hey this girl loves fashion, but sometimes it takes a toll on me.

Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur Is The Holy Grail Behind My No Makeup Look

My busy schedule leaves me with limited time for pampering and beauty where  some days I attend school from 9am to 7pm. I need to rely on my makeup staying up with me at all time like a trusted ally. Hello! My tired face has yet learn to naturally camouflage itself haha. My combination skin tends to go against me by reminding me that  it loves to shine like a diamond, usually around lunch hour.  But you know what? I think I found the product to keep the shine away and my skin looking flawlessly natural all throughout my day. Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur is the Holy Grail that hasn’t let me down. After trying so many potions, powders and lotions (primers) to  help me keep that “No Makeup” dewy, but not greasy look, I feel confident in this new addition to my minimal makeup routine.

No Makeup Instant Blur is an invisible primer equipped with Alpha Lipoic Acid, a powerful antioxidant that helps with minimizing the look of pores. This perfecting balm works like a photo filter with instant blurring benefits, shine control, redness, and helps camouflage any visible lines.

I initially had doubts about Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur’ balmy texture. I felt it wasn’t the best option for my combination skin, but I was wrong. Its lightweight texture and un-scented formula instantly blurred those pesky imperfections while helping me keep a balance skin texture throughout my day. I love that! One less thing to worry about during my busy days.

Perricone MD No Makeup Instant Blur can be use alone on bare skin to blur imperfections, or under makeup as a primer for a flawless long-lasting look that won’t cake or crease. I even take it on the go on those extra long days for touching up my T-zone who’s the biggest rebel of all.

Perrier flavors x FLOW.17 public art exhibition at Randall’s Island

Perrier flavors x FLOW.17 public art exhibition at Randall’s Island

My summer partnership with  Perrier Sparkling Mineral Water lead me to the seventh annual edition of FLOW, a public art exhibition hosted by the Randall’s Island Park Alliance.

For my wanderlust adventure I brought along my favorite Perrier Flavor in Strawberry. The perfect on the go refreshment to stay cool and hydrated during the warm days of summer.

Summertime in New York City is ideal for fun out in the sun, adventures, exploration and discovery. This is the time of the year where we can exercise mindfulness in natural environments whom are many time equipped with a side of public art. During the summer an endless display of art can be spotted all throughout the city as if the artworks themselves were also eager with the idea of being outside when the temperature is nice. This magical display of creativity makes this wonderful city feel at time like a cosmopolitan setting inspired by Alice in Wonderland.

And just like Alice, I felt as if I had gone down the rabbit hole when I reached my destination. A whimsical spectacle of mirrored panels that looked like a set from the movie. The structures are meant to resemble Northern Renaissance altarpieces, depicting Biblical characters as a way to represent the challenges facing kingdoms. Rose DeSiano’s Island of Empirical Data and Other Fabrications uses data that includes historical facts, photo archives, and government records as a way to “explore the complexity and reflexivity of culturally-constructed histories.”

The Randall’s Island Park Alliance is a non-profit organization that works in conjunction with local communities to provide an “innovative and exciting destination through a wide range of sports venues, cultural events and environmental exploration.”

I recalled summer Sundays were always spent on the Island during my teenage years. After a short hiatus I later began attending on my own for music festivals and art fairs. On this recent visit I began to notice the true natural beauty the island possesses; in the calm and quiet areas by the water I neglected to stop and admirer, the abundance of greenery and well manicured lawns, and the cool air and shades ideal for a siesta or meditation. Today I see this island as a refuge from when you need to step away from the loudness and fast-paced state of the city.

I hope my adventures inspired you to get out and explore the natural areas near you before the summer is over. Check out  AKACORLEONE to see how the Perrier Flavors inspired him to create an Art fun house.
