Incredible Finds @UnitedNude NYC Sample Sale

I stopped by early this rainy morning to get my hands on the very last pair of CrazyLacy’s in the world!!  Since they were sold out everywhere and I just couldn’t get them at regular price, I was way too happy when I found these on the one off section at the United Nude Showroom.

The prices from $25, $50, $75 and $100. A real steal for shoes that retail in the $500 range!

There are a few rules that every city girl learns in her twenties. Wash off your mascara at night, show up fashionably late at parties, arrive early at sample sales and always bring a shoe loving accomplice who will give you an honest opinion. There is nothing worst than going to a shoe sale or war zone without an (shoe loving) allies!  Lucky for me, my mother in law was in town, we are the same shoe size and so off we went to scour for United Nude treasures.

The showroom was divided into samples, sizes and last seasons and one off’s.

Unbelievable discounts, holy grails and iconic shoes like the Crazy Lacy and the Tulip boot were available. Along with neons, mens, sandals, platforms and pumps – this is not a sale to be missed!

Hidden Gems in Norway

When you think of exotic locations, does Norway come to mind?  Since I am planing my May getaway, I have been doing a lot of research on unconventional vacation locations, what I can do there and what is unique about that place. I did some digging on Norway and found these interesting gems. Have you ever been to Norway?


The water of Norway is pure, beautifying and now in a bottle. Maya Water is the premium facial water mist from Norway’s finest. With travel size and regular size and 4 different types of nutrient infusion, you have to add this into your everyday beauty routine. I keep one by the computer, one by my bed and one in the purse.


Restorsea is a beauty line that uses Norwegian Salmon enzymes as a key anti-aging ingredient in their prestige skincare line. The founder of Restorsea discovered this national treasure when she took note of the salmon worker’s hands that looked remarkably young.

Us New Yorkers crave a square of grass and breath of fresh air. In Norway, there is plenty of space to build modern homes, enjoy the scenery and really feel like you are part of nature without being totally crammed. The serenity of Norway is really picturesque to say the least.


If you are ever sick of the outdoors, there is a great Norwegian Slot Site on that you can test your luck. This slot site is easy to use and you can start with some free spins.

If you have been to Norway, I’d love to hear from you about your adventures!
