Here's a small peak into what I've been up to recently...

No better way to clean and organize your room
than with a glass of Champagne in your hand.

Out to dinner with my parents. The white blossoms on the tree looked like snow.

Cocktail hour with siblings and friends, a glass of Champagne, and live music.

Amazing seats for another Yankees game.

Lunch at Mario Batali's restaurant Otto
Live music at Ballaro

Neon Lights

In NYC we have a lot of rain in the upcoming forecast....doesn't exactly make me feel very "spring-y". Instead of sitting in the park in a cute floral dress drinking an iced coffee, I want to hole up in a dark cafĂ© , reading a Victorian novel and drinking cappuccino.  In order to counteract this feeling I'm adding pops of neon to my outfits to brighten things up. Here are some of my favorite of the season... with a Victorian novel and a cappuccino. To counteract this dreary feeling I’m using pops of neon to brighten things up. Here are some of my favorites from this season… 

Love Fury Neon Pink heel - by Nine West
I just bought these and let me assure you - this picture does not do them justice.
They are fluorescent pink and amazing!

Gap's 3-Stripe Sweater
I also got this in navy and kelly green and snagged each for only $7 in store!

Forever 21 Wing Bracelet
I love wearing this now, but I'm also looking forward to pairing it with white this summer!

La Mer Neon Green Watch
However, I have still yet to find the perfect pink blazer like the one below. Any know where I can find one????

I'm Back!

I have been on hiatus from Champagne Wishes for too long now. Sorry to those of you who keep asking me to update it - although let's call a spade a spade here, no one is losing sleep over the lack of new posts to my blog. However, I have decided to start again and I thought May 1st was a good jumping off point.

I needed some words of wisdom to get me back on track and get some things in my life moving. Here is some of my inspiration:

"Women who seek to be equal to men lack ambition."  
- Timothy Leary

"Life isn't about finding yourself. It is about creating yourself." 
- George Bernard Shaw

"Don't give up what you want most for what you want now." 
- unknown

"Always do what you are afraid to do." 
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
