Hi! A few images I’ve recently shared on instagram!

Image #3 | A few friends and I were recently having a conversation about signature scents. One of them asked me “Helena, what’s your signature scent?” I thought long and hard about what one fragrance I wouldn’t want to be without and the answer was Diptyque ‘Eau Duelle. It’s one of the few fragrances that doesn’t give me a headache or make me nauseous (so sad, but true) and I always get a ton of compliments when I wear it. Do you have a signature scent? If so, what is it?

Image #6 | When I posted this image on instagram, with the caption “finally got the soles protected,” because here, they were worn, but not protected yet, I got a ton of people asking “where do you get them done?” In case you missed it, I did an entire post on the topic of shoe care. I usually bring my Louboutins to Leather Spa, since they match the red sole so well. In this case, I bought them to the shoe man on 33rd between Park & Madison (closer to Madison) after my best friend recommended them. They’re significantly cheaper than Leather Spa and while the soles have the slightest bit of an orange tint, it’s really not noticeable when you’re wearing them. Personally, I recommend!

On another note, Shopbop is having a huge sale + a further 25% discount with the code GOBIG14 – These red leather pants are seriously calling my name. Remember this image of Kate Moss? An oldie but a goodie!

Lastly, I would love to hear what you all would want to see more of on Brooklyn Blonde? More outfits? More NYC? More beauty? Talk to me! I’d have no blog without any readers, so your opinion is everything to me.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful holiday!!
