Nike iD

May 27, 2014


With my new fitness regimen, workout clothes have been the bulk of my shopping list lately… and while I’m barefoot at Barre3 class, J wanted to make sure I was outfitted from head to toe, and what better way then with custom sneakers?!


NikeiD is one of the coolest sites for custom footwear right now. You can pick the style, colors and everything from designs on the base of the shoe to the lining/swoosh and so much more!  I also loved the fact that you can customize the tongue of your sneaker (J and I did each others initials… awwww 🙂


Click here to design the sneakers I ordered.  Also you have to love that it is only around $20 more for a customized sneaker!



Are you in the mood for some more designing?  Here are some other fun sites:



How to Clean a Cashmere Robe

October 10, 2013

Cashmere RobeOne of my favorite gifts of all time? My cashmere robe.  It is one of the most decedent items I own and feel so luxurious every morning I get to put it on.  (tip: gentlemen – take note with the holidays coming up wink wink).

The only downside with cashmere is it is slightly high maintenance… or so I thought.  But look no further! You don’t have to shell out $$ to dry clean your cashmere robe (or sweaters/socks/tops)… you actually can clean it at home.  Here is how to:

1. Wash out your sink or bathtub so that it is clean.  Fill with cold water.

2. Fill up water with a cashmere washing agent or mild detergent – ie Woolite or The Laundress Cashmere Wash (I used 3 cap-fulls).

3. Place garment in tub and fully submerge into water.

4. Gently knead and work detergent into the fabric. Make sure not to stretch or pull (cashmere is very delicate and you don’t want to disfigure it).

Detergent5. Let soak for 15 minutes.


6. Drain bathtub and refill with fresh, cold water (I used the showerhead attachment to rinse out the fabric).

Drain Bathtub7. Let soak in clean water and swish fabric to fully remove any soap.

8. Drain tub again and gently ball material to squeeze excess water out. Layout robe between towels on a drying rack or table (I did this outside, because a lot of water was still in the fabric).

Towel Dry9. Let robe fully dry… then cozy up in it with your favorite cup of tea… happy fall!
