Posh Night Out! Woodfire Grill

So I don't normally blog about food. But I had to rave about a recent 5-course feast and champagne tasting at Woodfire Grill that I shared with a fellow blogger SASoffer at EatDrinkRepeat.

I am a pescatarian so it was refreshing to find out that Woodfire Grill offered a pesci version of their 5-course tasting.  More often than not, when I go to a better restaurants of this caliber we veggie/pesci's are often left to chance (think uninspired veggie plates...bleh!) as if we don't deserve good food too! Are you sure you wouldn't like a side of bacon with that. Yes I am sure. and. No. I would not.

However, at Woodfire the menu was well thought out and I did not feel slighted in the least.  Suffice to say we ate very very very well.  (And yes SAS I stand by the fact that although DELISH that toffee pudding put us over the top).

Here are a few picts of my favorite courses.  Now admittedly I am not a food photographer but take my word for it, pure yumminess.  Oh and my new fav champagne? A gorgeous Rose from Dosnon  & Lepage. No picts of that though, it went very quickly.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Statement Jewelry

Statement jewelry is a fun and economical trend that is a great way to spice up a stale closet moment.  Either of these offer a nice pop of color against a neutral palette or a wonderful color anchor to get lost amidst a frenzy of this seasons prints. Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! Spring Skin

Things are beginning to heat up and now is the time when clothing starts to get more bare (eek, must.spin.more) and gorgeous skin is a must.  Here is a fabulous DIY Olive Oil scrub that I found via a blog that I unfortunately can't remember at the moment (sorry!). Anyhoo scrubs are a great way to exfoliate and let your best skin shine through. DIY scrubs let you use all the good stuff and avoid all the bad.  Good deal. Stay Posh!

Posh Beauty! Estee Lauder Skin Care

Caution gorgeous skin ahead.

I've been using Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone illuminator for about a week after a tip from a friend at Saks (coincidentally my Mum has been using it too).  I love it. The product claims include that over time skin will look noticeably clearer and brighter, vibrant and more even-toned. It is designed to be used under SPF moisturizer.

I'm only one week (claim is for improvement in 2 weeks) in and  the results are great.  They include 1) no breakouts 2) luminous skin without foundation 3) natural looking glow under foundation. Worth a try for sure, try it and tell me how you like it.  Stay posh!

Posh Possessions! Missoni for Target and Atomizers


So my Missoni for Target towels are fantastic and they were so well worth the wait. I can't stop gushing. I hope Target re-rolls this collabo.  I need the bath sized version. But for now the hand towel  looks fantastic with my vanity set up... as do these new 'vintage inspired' perfume atomizers I found at HomeGoods! I love anything that adds a touch of posh glam to everyday.  I cannot wait to fill these with my favorite scents.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style! Warby Parker What a Spectacle

This post is inspired by my Mom who is in the market for new eye glasses. She's great about updating her frames in an effort to keep current.  I decided I better not get left behind.

Enter Warby Parker (warbyparker.com) a innovative little company bringing you stylish frames for not a lot of money. All frames with prescription lenses are priced at just $95.  The high quality frame styles tend to skew vintage so for this to be appealing you have to be into the "nerdy" hipster craze that's been raging for about few years.  More than being "hip" I think I like the fact that all of the styles are statement worthy.  They do scream "I have on glasses!!!!!" so be ready for that. But also be ready to be chic.

I road tested a few pairs via their Try 5 program which is brilliant.  You can try up to 5 pairs of frames at home for 5 days before committing to a purchase. Brills. And the best part of the deal is that once you decide on a pair that you like and purchase them...Warby Parker will send a pair of glasses to someone in need.  Even more brills.  Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! butter London Nail Lacquer

Harrumph. How different could this nail polish be I thought.  As a sometime vegan, often time vegetarian but mostly pescatarian I am not new to the world of "good for nature; good for the body."  But truth be told, try though they might often times these products do you leave you wanting for some of the bad stuff because they never quite measure up (think all natural deodorant).  


NOT the case with butter London Nail Lacquer. The nail lacquer brand is famous for being "three free" read no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP or Parabens. butter LONDON was the first company to sell non-toxic nail lacquer in the United States.  The brand, has also been a backstage fixture at Fashion Weeks around the world. I went on a bit of a spree (healthy beauty isn't cheap at $14 a pop) at ULTA and found three colors I liked: Wallis, Blagger and Royal Navy.  I found the polish to be very easy to apply, true to color and quick drying. Definitely worth a go. Stay Posh! 


The score!
