Smell Pretty with Emeshel X

If you have been to Sephora lately and smelled the spring fragrances and thought they smell really similar, you might be right. There are only a few truly unique scents out there that are distinct and totally memorable. I sampled Emeshel X recently and thought it was beautiful!  A powdery rose scent in an elegant glass bottle. The only thing I would change is the gem stone on the bottle – I think it would have been better without it.  Since the scent was a bit sophisticated, I gave this to my aunt who absolutely loved it!

Introducing Emeshel X and Y
This fall, Emeshel debuts its first fragrance for women and men in the United States. Emeshel X and Y are handcrafted fragrances that stimulate the power of attraction that exists between a man and a woman. Each scent is intricately formulated by master perfumers to create aromas that men and women are compelled to experience. “Emeshel’s X and Y celebrate the magnetic energy that attracts women and men,” says Sandy. “Both fragrances represent the undeniable yet unseen scent of the force that binds a woman and man together. These stunning fragrances empower women and men to make their own luxurious statement of style.”
Emeshel X&Y are also housed in exquisite hand blown glass bottles that are literally like works of art. It’s like owning a piece of the aspirational Emeshel art at a price that is within reach.

This has been a serious foodie week for me. Tuesday was a double booked day between Food Fete and BurgerFi’s media preview – how is a foodie suppose to split her time and double her stomach?? I need a body double on days like this because they were at the exact same time in opposite ends of the city. We decided to check out BurgerFI because of all the buzz we have been hearing about it and we are always on the hunt for new burger spots.

BurgerFI is awesome!  It has a great atmosphere, trendy decor, outdoor space – close to Central Park and the menu was super! They have burgers, hot dogs, creative desserts, craft beer (both draft and bottle), fries, onion rings and numerous toppings.  They have triple, double, single patties with veggie options too.

These were by far my favorite!  The onion rings are huge and took me 20 bites to eat one.IMG_6602Tai and the giant onion ring


More than just great food, dining at BurgerFi is a unique experience- one you can feel good about. Each BurgerFi store is built according to environmentally sustainable best practices, and includes earth-friendly elements, like chairs that are made from recycled Coke bottles, tables made out of compressed recycled wood, and large fans that use 66% less electricity. BurgerFi maintains a low carbon footprint, and maintains strict recycling programs for oil, cardboard, bottles and cans.

The BURGERFI color is lime green so I wore green nail polish and I even put my burger button on my iPhone to celebrate this happy day!
