It is becoming a tradition for Lydia and I to head to NYC for the RewardStyle New York Fashion Week party. It's always a good time meeting old and new blog friends with a great view of the city. With the change of location for NYFW, the venue for the party changed as well. Instead of The Empire Hotel it was at the Hotel Americano.  I got to see a bunch of old blogger friends (even if it was just a quick hello - the party was super busy!) and met some new ones as well.

Nike was there to help us create our very own NIKEiD shoes! I can't wait for mine to arrive. It takes about a month, but they're custom made to your specifications so totally worth it! I got mine with spotted pony hair and purple accents!

I attempted the curl my hair for the day, but it didn't go so well. I just can't seem to work a curling wand (or curling iron...or any hair tool.)

Notice my little nod to Star Wars in this outfit, I couldn't resist wearing the cute lapel pin Kohl's gave me during my photoshoot last week! Hopefully I'll have the official photos from the shoot to share soon as well as a video!

Dress: Jason Wu (Roundabout Resale), Heels: Dolce & Gabbana (Uptown Consignment), Bag c/o Brahmin (similar), Sunglasses: Chanel (bought in Greece), Stormtrooper Pin c/o Kohl's

A few weeks ago, the folks over at Shari's Berries emailed to ask if I would be interested in hosting a Valentine's Day get together with my friends, aka 'Pal'entine's Day! Obviously, since I love desserts, I said yes. I figured the best time to have this little gathering was on my trip to Orlando with friends Kat, Kristen, Leah, Zack and Eric. Yes, we celebrated a little early, but who doesn't love chocolate any day of the year?! And the great thing about 'Pal'entine's Day is you can celebrate any time you want!

Often times, singles get depressed around Valentine's Day. I'm the opposite. I actually enjoy hanging around by myself watching movies and eating chocolate. BUT, I have to say, doing that with friends was just as good! We took over a little section of the Cabana Bay Beach Resort in Orlando, complete with red chairs (perfect for the occasion) and feasted on the delicious treats.

The love bugs and conversation heart pops were by far the most popular items with the chocolate covered strawberries and sea salt caramels following close behind! We saved our cheesecakes for another night, but those went like wildfire too! The only disappointment was with the shortbread cookies. While they were adorable, the taste didn't measure up to the rest of the treats, which felt like they were painstakingly created. We found them a little hard and bland. Overall the food is amazing and I would love to try all of Shari's Berries offerings!

Here's the best picture of the night, who wouldn't want to be surrounded by such lovely girls ;) (I may be biased.)

Our friend Eric was stuck in his hotel room while we were living it up, so we made sure to save some snacks for him. He really enjoyed the Love Bug Brownie Pop!

Come back tomorrow for the start of my vacation outfits!
