Sands Point Shop Eats: Port Washington Restaurant Week


There are so many fabulous things to do this October, including the First Annual Port Washington Restaurant Week!  It takes place this week, October 16-23.  So many great restaurants have joined in on this wonderful event. Each restaurant will be offering specials all week long including one of my favorites,Wild Honey on Main.


Wild Honey On Main has a one of the most palate-blowing menus in town utilizing the freshest ingredients.  The best part is they offer Gluten Free options for all of my fellow Celiac Chicks (and Men).  They have the best Ribs in town (which are naturally Gluten Free!) and an amazing wine selection, including my favorite, Rosé.  This event will be a great opportunity to get dressed up and showcase your favorite looks.

What to wear:


The MZ Wallace Abbey Crossbody is the perfect accessory for eating your way through town.  It is light-weight and compact, perfect for strolling the streets to walk off all of the yummy foods.  The best part about this bag is it keeps your hands free so you can enjoy all of the food Port Washington has to offer.  The Abbey Crossbody is one of my favorite crossbody bags, especially in the pine color for the fall.  I hope you all enjoy this wonderful culinary event!  Be sure to stop by and give us a visit.

Long Weekend Getaway


Columbus Day Weekend is upon us!  If you are like me you have extravagant plans to travel to Boston this weekend to shop around Faneuil Hall, or to take a scenic drive out to Greenport to go pumpkin picking and winery hopping; but as they say, all of the best-laid-plans go awry.  Instead of venturing out east this weekend, I will be attending two weddings!  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good wedding and love supporting my loved ones as they enter the next chapter of their lives, but it does cramp my style a bit when it comes to my weekend plans.

For the rest of you who are lucky enough to enjoy a long weekend getaway, enjoy!  Take this time to make new memories with your friends and family, and takes lots of pictures!  I am not talking about snapping every two minutes, I mean take real quality photos and print them out so you can have the memories forever.  I hope you all get to go somewhere fun and exciting this weekend! xo

Here’s a peek at what I would have worn for my Long Weekend Getaway:

Fall Esssentials



It’s that time of year again, fall is here and I could not be happier! I love looking at the colorful leaves and breathing in the crisp fall air. All of a sudden standing on the long line at Starbucks each morning is less irritating knowing I will be receiving a pumpkin spiced latte instead of my usual boring black coffee. The fall makes me happy on so many levels, but most of all I love FALL FASHION. Curating a new wardrobe based on the latest fall trends and filling my closet with beautiful scarves, jackets, and cognac colored handbags is one of the many reasons why I think fall is the best season! I can finally use my Camo Metro Tote and wear scarves on a daily basis without hesitation.

Not only do I love the fall fashion, but I also enjoy decorating my home for fall. Placing pumpkin scented candles in my Simon Pearce Nantucket Lantern and carefully positioning my Simon Pearce Pumpkins on the mantle makes my home feel warm and inviting.

Here are a few of the things I cannot live without this fall:
