As you know, CW23 Winging It! Buffalo Style challenged us to coordinate a perfect wedding with less than 2 weeks to air LIVE on the morning show. With the help of local vendors & Etsy Wedding shops, we were able to do just that. From decor, to the wedding dress, tuxedos, bridesmaids dresses, jewelry, florals, programs, wedding cake and everything in between, you could say we were proud of all we were able to accomplish. C & I now have a running joke that we wish all of our weddings could be coordinated in 2 weeks – fewer choices, less headache! Overall, we are so happy with what we get to do. View the entire live wedding here.

Skin Brightening: What’s It All About?

Let’s face it, we all aspire to have radiant skin with no help needed from makeup. Unfortunately, one of the most common skin concerns globally is hyperpigmentation.

Bring on the skin lightening trend. A trend that started more than two decades ago in Asia with “whitening” products, known today as “brightening” products to carry a less controversial stigma. These creams, serums and treatments aim to lighten dark spots, acne scarring, and improve texture and tone.

Lucky for us there are several over the counter options that do the trick!

Top picks for a fresher complexion:

  1. Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Moisturizing Cream, $59.50

  2. Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Treatment, $15

  3. Aveda Enbrightenment Brightening Correcting Creme, $58

  4. Clinique Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion, $46.50

  5. Nuance Salma Hayek Renewing & Brightening Facial Serum, $15.99

Issue and remedy guide:

Acne scarring? Opt for soy-based products.

Overall brightness? Bring on the vitamin-C.

Dark spots? Enzymes are your thing, so look out for ingredients like melanozyme.

Texture and tone? Botanicals and other plant-based ingredients like omogi and angelica root extracts will do the trick.

Prevention? Look for licorice – yum!

So go ahead, lighten up.

Entertaining: St. Patrick’s Day Party

cwstpattysThursday morning I shared a few of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day entertaining tips with our friends at The CW’s Winging It! Buffalo Style. Seeing as St. Patty’s Day is more of a “going out” holiday, I kept things simple. We’re in Buffalo for the festivities and if you didn’t know, Buffalo has one of the largest parades in town. Naturally, everyone wakes up early throws on their green and heads to their first party of the day. These entertaining tips suffice for a little pre-parade action with a DIY photo booth, “Irish Gold” recipe and funky straws. View the segment here.

I’m so excited to share my St. Patrick’s Day cocktail, the “Irish Gold” as seen in my first entertaining column for Buffalo Magazine. Seeing as C & I have our own PR firm, it’s always a bit different when you see yourself publicized as opposed to a client. My next column releases March 25th, so stay tuned!

I wanted to change things up a bit, so instead of green beer, I came up with this gold recipe. A special thank you to Southern Comfort for sponsoring this delicious libation – Cheers!

{Our office space is the third brownstone down}

What I Wore// Leather jacket: American Rag // Button down: Converse for Target // Jeans: Forever 21 // Boots: Steve Madden (I’ve had these since my sophomore year of college. I can’t part) // Hat: New Era Cap // Bag: Vania and David c/o

C & I recently went for a stroll around the new office neighborhood. I was in a dress-down mood, so I through my hair up in this fantastic New Era cap and through on my all time favorite boots. We’ll be in the Allentown area of Buffalo. A super cute neighborhood filled of amazing restaurants, bars, people watching and only a few blocks away from The Elmwood Village (with tons of shopping!). If you can’t tell, we’re a bit excited.
