The Friday Edit, Vol. 20


A weekly edit, by Dana.

The Edit

Highs:

My brother-in-law owns an event and concierge service company and on Wednesday he helped put together a charity event with Children of the City, a non-profit organization that helps children in poverty in New York. Not only were we there for a good cause (my sister and I decided to sponsor a child!), but we also got to hang out with some of the New York Giants. Even though I’m a Steelers fan, it was really cool to get to meet the #2 pick in the overall draft, Saquon Barkley..and a lot of other players! I’ve also never seen Matt happier. He was hanging with all the players, taking selfies, talking to them as if they were boys, it was awesome!

Another really great high of this week was speaking at LIM College on Thursday morning. I spoke to a group of students who are getting ready to find internships. I spoke about my role as a Merchandiser, how I got started, and how my blog correlates to my career. I’ve always loved mentoring students and giving them insight on my experiences (I was a Student Ambassador and Orientation Leader in college), so this opportunity was really fun for me!

Lows:

Not enough sleep;)

What are some of your highs and lows from this week?

The Weekend Update

Today is a really exciting day because: 1. We start Summer Fridays (WOO HOO), and 2. I’m meeting with my intern, Keely, today! It’s her first “official day” with The Champagne Edit, and I cannot wait for her to start with us!

Tomorrow, my mom, sister, and I are going to see the Donna Summers Broadway play. We got her tickets for Mother’s Day, and I’ve heard really good things about it! After the play, Matt is taking me on a surprise date night…okay not a total surprise…but the location is a surprise. And on Sunday I’m going to use the entire day to do a whole lot of nothing. (But let’s be honest, I’m probably going to get some blog work done.)

The Things I’m Loving This Week

The Items I’m Eyeing (& Buying)

Today I Will…

Drink a chai latte.


do it for the ‘gram

  • Can't keep my hands off @mr_letto when he's in his @revtown jeans😍🔥 Matt seriously LOVES his new jeans - he's typically really picky about sizing and stretch, but these live up to his standards👍🏻 And not only do I love these jeans because he looks great in them (and at $79, you can't beat the price), but also because they're a Pittsburgh based company🥰 Head to the link in my bio to get a pair for your man via @nordstrom! And for all my NYers, you can get a pair at Roosevelt Field😌 #revtownpartner #nordstrom
  • Okay, *MAYBE* I’m ready for Spring if it means I can pull out this baby again🤷🏻‍♀️👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Running around New York City 24/7 means that sometimes I forget to drink enough water...I know, NOT GOOD😥 On any given day, I'm running between the office, stepping out for a midday brand collaboration shoot, my favorite 6:30PM @soulcycle class, and wine with friends😧 With @drinkdripdrop, I can give my body what it needs with less water🙌🏻 I throw a bunch of these in my every day bag, so I can pour into my water bottle on the go! Not only do these help with thirst, but also help me stay clear of the headaches that often come with dehydration💦 Try it out, you will NOT be disappointed! Use code SWEAT15 for 15% off! #ad #sticktoyourmission #dehydrationrelief
  • If you need me, you can find me here😍 JK, but I mean, in my dreams😂 #theludlowhotel #bathtubgoals
  • New York City shopping now feels complete thanks to the new @neimanmarcus at Hudson Yards😍🙌🏻 I had a blast at the VIP opening, and now YOU can go check it out for yourself👀 Be prepared for the latest trends, amazing in store experiences, and even a place to pit stop for a quick blowout (among other salon services)😇 Thanks @neimansnyc for having me! #ad #NeimanMarcus #hellohudsonyards
  • Pink goes good with green💚 #wickedquotes #danawearsnow .

Thanks to a really annoying migraine, I was knocked out for the entire day😦 So this Sunday was kind of a (okay, fine, major) #fail - LUCKILY, I have off tomorrow, so I get a re-do😏😌
  • Spring weather yesterday, chunky sweaters needed today🤦🏻‍♀️ WHO HURT YOU, MOTHER NATURE?!🤬 .

ANYWAY. Instead of getting mad about the weather, I’m spending my morning at @yourbeautyblvd and then heading to brunch🙌🏻 HAPPY SATURDAY LOVES!🥰 // 📸 by @lydiahudgensphoto
  • My skin never feels better when I use my @lamer Concentrate🥰 I’ve been working with this brand for a few years now, and this product is my secret weapon to soothe my skin and calm irritation when I’m stressed👍🏻 PS: It also is great for travel, especially after being exposed to pollutants in flight🙌🏻 #TheConcentrate #ad
