You’re Invited | Caumsett Rocks, The Caumsett Foundation’s 17th Annual Benefit

caumsett state park
One of my favorite things to do out here in suburbia is run at Caumsett State Park. We often take the kids on weekends but I also steal away during the week for some alone time. If you follow me on Insta, you know it’s where I go to get up close and personal with local wildlife.

When I was asked to join this year’s benefit committee for the park’s annual fundraiser, I jumped at the chance help. Our efforts are coming to fruition this weekend at Caumsett Rocks, The Caumsett Foundation’s 17th Annual Benefit:

WHAT: The Caumsett Foundation’s 17th Annual Benefit Honoring Dr. Marian Conway Executive Director, New York Community Bank Foundation
WHERE: Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve
WHEN: Saturday, September 27, 2014, 6:30 PM

The party will feature music from Mike DelGuidice and the Big Shot Band (with members currently touring with Billy Joel), cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, as well as live and silent auctions.

Tickets start at $150 for adult tickets (donation amounts vary but all tickets include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and the live music show). There are also junior tickets for 35 and under at $100/ticket. You can purchase them here.

Pencil Perfect | Three Timeless Ways to Style Your Pencil Skirt

Versatility is a girl’s best friend- especially when it comes to pieces in her wardrobe. That’s why we think a great pencil skirt (or two, or three) is a must-have piece for any closet. Too often relegated to an 8-to-5 time slot, the pencil skirt is also one of your best after hour’s assets. Timeless, resourceful and classic-yet-cool; the pencil skirt works perfectly for daytime or date time. It’s no wonder why style icons like Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Jacque Kennedy have donned this feminine silhouette for decades. We think they were on to something…

Wondering how to wear a pencil skirt? Try these simple styles for event-appropriate looks that wow:

Alberto VO5’s Recommended 5-Step Process to Tame Frizzy Hair

I’ve had so much fun working with Alberto VO5 on its “National Frizz Month” campaign showing women how to prevent and manage frizzy hair during the hot summer months.

Humid weather causes frizzy hair for most women. In a recent survey, a whopping 87% percent of women say they suffer from frizz and use specialty products to manage it. Seventy-five percent of women check the weather forecast each day to plan their frizz fighting routines and 25% even admit to staying home on a bad hair day!

Here’s why we get frizzy hair in the first place and how to stop it before it starts.

If you’re having a particularly bad hair day, trying styling your hair up. Here’s my favorite simple summer up-do, a knotted bun tutorial, plus the products I use for styling.

For my last video in this series, I have the complete VO5 recommended 5-step process for preventing and managing frizz from pre-treatment through styling and the 5 products to tame frizzy hair:
