Every now and then I stumble onto a restaurant that I have to rave about. Whether I was enchanted by the decor, seduced by the food or pampered by the staff I know this hot spot has to be mentioned and celebrated. If I could check the little box for 'all of the above' it wouldn't be speaking highly enough of The Harbor Raw Bar & Grill. Don't believe me? See for yourself!

When I feel like taking a last minute mini-vacation, and I need someplace that is affordable, stress free and only an hour away I love taking a ferry over to Shelter Island. If you are not familiar with Long Island than you're probably not familiar with the amazing smaller islands just off the coast. While some of the islands are land preserves, and private properties like Gardiners Island, Great Gull and Little Gull Islands, Plum Island and Robins Island, there are many that you can visit and explore such as Fire Island, Block Island and Shelter Island. When I was younger, I loved Fire Island. But now that I'm a bit older, I prefer the serenity of the beaches of West Hampton and the privacy of small town living on Shelter Island. 

Keep reading to learn some of the perks, and to view some of the amazing landscapes when visiting Shelter Island.

The Accurate
Girls: So you have your rose gold Michael Kors for when your out with the girlfriends, your leather banded Fendi to impress your boss, your classic Daniel Wellington to ensure your parents that you're all responsible and then you have the Nike fit band for when you're getting your sweat on.

Guys: You have your no fuss minimalist M&C0, your over-sized Invicta watch to impress your guy friends, your girlfriend, anyone really. You know what they say don't you? The bigger the watch face the bigger the, well, the watch face. Then, you have your Nike fit band for when you're lifting and getting your gym on.

So, what's missing from your watch collection? A talking piece, some ironic wrist candy, something to take your watch game to the next level. We're talking Mr. Jones Watches. For more photos take a look!

One of my favorite eye looks for summer is the simple yet stylish winged eye liner. Winged eye liner when it starts thinner on the inside of the eye and thicker on the outside of the eye forms the "cat-eye" shape which gives the illusion of a lifted eye. (It's also great for hiding those smile lines around your eye!) What are the positives of this youthful look? It's not make-up heavy, draws just the right amount of attention to your eyes and depending on the thickness can look either edgy or elegant. The negatives? This look takes a steady hand and practice with either a liquid or gel liner. So, what's a girl to do when she is always busy and doesn't have the time to sit for 20 minutes in front of a mirror? We tried a few tricks and have come up with a list of ways you can draw on your perfect set of wings!
