Shout Out to NYC, LA and Orlando! #KiplingHoliday + Event RSVP!

Holiday season in New York City is one of the many reason why I chose to live in this chaotic, wonderful uproar of a city–and this month seemed like a good time to take advantage of one of the most festive places in the world.

Bloomberg Building
When the city puts on its holiday charm, even the workaholic among us can’t help but be enchanted. There’s just something about holiday events, Christmas shopping, Michael Buble holiday music, twinkly lights, sweet treats, and whiffs of roasted chestnuts that is universally appealing...
I always started my Christmas shopping couple weeks or even months earlier in department stores before the big day, although this year I will do things differently. With a busy social calendar ahead, I really don't have time to do any in-store shopping but online shopping? Yes! I have time for it. 

I always needed a tote bag for work since my friend always made fun of me being the modern day Mary Poppins (I carried all sort of things with me :p,  last week I came across a metallic gold bag from a lifestyle brand - Kiping USA website and I love it! The Metallic Noelle Tote bag keep all my stuff organized and there's a pocket for everything! A zipped pouch and pocket on the front are perfect for essentials for my metro card and cellphone, while the mesh slip pockets and zip pockets inside are the place to organize my keys and makeup while keeping it secure.


It is possible to fall in love with a bag?

Holiday House NYC 2013 Designers Lighting Collection


I was glad to have a chance to attend the Press Release party with Rio Hamilton. What else is better than viewing all the top notch designer's creation inside the Holiday House. In this article I will be focusing on the lighting collection inside HH. I will include more out and about in the next article. :) Ciao !













Holiday House Design Show was founded six years ago by Iris Dankner to raise breast cancer awareness in the design industry. Iris is a sixteen year breast cancer survivor, and has made it her mission to raise funds for breast cancer research and women who need help fighting this disease.

In 2008, combining her two passions, namely her love of design and her efforts to help women in need, Iris created Holiday House, the first designer showhouse held in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization. Recruiting top interior designers in the New York City area, the showhouse was held in a historic mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan and was a resounding success, with all proceeds donated to help the quest to end the scourge of breast cancer forever.

Since its inception, Holiday House has featured the top interior designers in the industry, received critical acclaim, been endorsed by some of the most celebrated global luxury brands, and expanded to a summer showhouse in the Hamptons. Holiday House is about the celebration of life, with each designer selecting a holiday or a special moment in life as an inspiration for their design.
