This Is How We Do It...

February 19, 2015
This song title came into my head while I starting typing this New York Fashion Week recap.  
I tried to put my imagery to the song lyrics but had to stop after the first verse. I would said the rest of the song didn't really fit into the whole round up lol!

This is how we do it
La ra ra ra ra ra...
(yep even when it is zero degrees us fashionistas still go to NYFW)

This is how we do it. 

It's Friday night, and I feel all right
The party is here on the West side
(ok well it was actually Saturday night at the Polo Bar)

And because the lyrics no longer work into the post I will move on to...

Midnight Inspirations- The Mommy Edition

February 10, 2015
Having a baby is a complete life-changer. It gives you a whole other perspective on why you wake up every day. I remember my best guy friend Ike Barinholtz telling me that when his baby was born all focus changed but in an amazing way. At that time I wasn't sure I could relate because life had been all about me and Dj Blue Steel and my other baby Boy Meets Girl® and of course my amazing family and nieces and nephew and incredible friends. But, I definitely did not know what having my own would feel like and it truly is incredible. Focuses have changed but as Ike told me only for the better. There is now a balance I have to find in each second, minute, hour, day and week. I have to say my moments taking a shower feel like a vacation but not in a bad way. Dylan Reid (Dj name = Dj Dylan Reid) is my little noodle and angel and is a midnight inspiration indeed. So that is why I am bringing you Midnight Inspirations- The Mommy Edition. I have been back and forth on how to incorporate this new stage of my life into the blog and how much I wanted to share with you all.  So today I am bringing you some fun Mommy advice from a fellow Mother and Entrepreneur Pamela Pekerman. The category on my blog Midnight Inspirations was made because I work 24/7 and most of time at midnight my creative juices kick in and I get even more inspired. Being a mother you would think I would be sleeping at midnight...nope this is still my time my special time my inspiration time. So without further ado welcome to my first mommy edition installment. Enjoy mommies and future mommies and friends of mommies, etc :) 

Pamela Pekerman is a wife, mom x2, TV style expert, Accessories Editor at BELLA Magazine and the founder of a lifestyle blog Pieces of Pam. Check out her site for fashion, family, home décor and beauty tips for the 30-something gals trying to figure it all out. 

Favorite tech item

Pamela: I’m obsessed with myLyve Home which is a must for any photo-obsessed mom. Once you snap a pic or take a video it automatically gets stored on your Lyve Home device and is accessible to you anywhere just by logging into the Lyve App. Basically, it’s like I'm carrying 90,000 photos with me wherever I go.   
Stacy: since Dylan was born I have taken at least 100 pictures a day and 5 videos. This is something to look into ASAP :)

Favorite beauty item

Pamela: It’s impossible to walk on this planet without putting on IT Cosmetics Buy Buy Under Eye, especially if you are sleep deprived new mom. Those first few months are brutal, but this tube made everything look so much better. And, by everything I mean me! 
Stacy: DONE and DONE

Favorite new KID accessory
Pamela: Kid Lid is one of those “why didn't I think of that” products. It allows me to show my daughter ballet productions (Swan Lake is our new favorite) without worrying about her pressing the keypad or ripping the letters off. 
Stacy: I am excited about this product too. I wonder when Dylan is old enough to press my keypad if this will be needed? I guess we will have to wait and see ;) But, sounds amazing for mommies now.

General advice for balancing life and work and being a mom?

Pamela: Mantra - Always Be Your Best You. It’s simple, but a concept that many women often forget as time goes on and we get into poor beauty and style habits. There’s never an excuse to not look your best. How you put yourself together is how you feel about yourself, and I want to look like someone who loves and values herself!

Meet our February 2015 Muse of the Month!

February 9, 2015
Introducing our February ‘15 Muse of the Month, Lameka!

A lover of Kate Moss & Johnny Depp like me ranks you higher up in the muse pickings lol! Lameka is an aspiring model and fashion enthusiast. I especially love her reasoning behind why she supports the charities below. Read below to learn more about Lameka.  And please help me in wishing Lameka a very Happy Birthday. xo

1. Name and Social Media Channels: Lameka Fox

2. Favorite charity to support and why? 

I support multiple charities one being Pencils of Promise which promotes education and builds schools in developing countries. I believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to learn and that it is a basic right that shouldn't be taken from anyone. 

Another charity I heavily support is JDRF Walk to Cure Type 1 Diabetes. Unfortunately almost two years ago I lost my grandmother to diabetes, naturally that affected my tremendously and I wanted to support the research that could help people with loved ones like mine. I talk about both organizations in speeches during pageants and also on my social media platforms. This year I plan to walk in Baltimore for JDRF, I'm super excited!  
3. Favorite Boy Meets Girl item and why?
Definitely the Boy Meets Girl Forbidden French Terry Lounge Pants. I love how effortlessly chic they are! I love how they've resurfaced the harem pant and the nostalgia they convey, I'm really into the whole "throwback" theme in fashion. My favorite thing about these pants is that they have the ability to be dressed up or down, depending on if you're having a night out in the city or lounging around the house.

Who is your muse or the person who inspires you most? Could be anyone! If you would like to be considered for Boy Meets Girl®'s Muse of the Month see the rules here!

Give up? Give in? Give it your ALL!

I have been extremely busy lately. It has been challenging trying to balance it all being a new mommy, owning a business and running this blog. Everyone has been asking me how I do it. I am honestly not sure. I live for it all. I couldn't image the pieces not being there. I am sure I have used this one a lot but here it goes again thanks to Steve Jobs.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.
