I'm Steffy, and I live in my favorite place on earth, Long Beach NY with my two loves & our dachshund. In this space we share our adventures around NY, cozy days at home and tons of outfits! Grab a cup of coffee and lets get to know each other!


dusk in my room ♥

There is nothing more beautiful than that time of evening where the sun is shining a faint pinkish/red light through your bedroom window. As you get ready for a night out, you can feel it's warmth peeking in. I adore that anxious feeling of getting dolled up, engulfed in my cozy place, and about to walk out into the world and the unknown.

In my final moments by myself in my bedroom, I will put on my lipstick, play my favorite record (by billie holiday), light a pumpkin scented candle even though it is almost summertime and spritz on the sweetest perfume to complete my outfit, Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge. It has become my new favorite scent because it is sweet and subtle(red currant + gardenia), yet still feminine, and it makes me feel like a perfect lady.

i love my beautiful evening rituals of getting dolled up. Do you have your own routines?

perfume: Vera Wang Be Jeweled Rouge

  13. Your room looks lovely:) I have a morning ritual for when I'm getting ready for work that's somewhat like your evening ritual. It's so fun to be a girl and get ready for the day.

  14. I'm with you...there's something to be said of the light when the sun comes down:)

  15. I like your post, all you described! Great photos!
