15-LoveOctober 28, 2014

TENNIS

I have a new love for tennis!  My daughter started taking classes as we have a teacher in the (to be family) and I am the one who takes her every week.  She and I both love going and I discovered my husband used to play in high school too.  I signed up to take lessons and I’m hooked.  My tennis instruction may be the biggest reason as he’s fun, patient, and oh so nice to all his students.  My hubby and I are playing too (although that isn’t as successful yet)

You know me, with the love of the sport come the love of the accessories:)  I got myself one dress and one skirt, Adidas kids and a racket.  I’m waiting for my skills to catch up with my stylish gear but when they do I may do more!

I even started a tennis pinterest board so if you are a fan go check it out.

Bare Beauty Round UpOctober 7, 2014

BARE-BEAUTY-ROUNDUP

Happy Tuesday! Remember the clean beauty post I shared from a friend’s blog the Bare Beauty!? Well, Jessica is back and kindly sharing her after summer beauty secrets with us today!  In additions to being clean she says it really works!  I don’t know about you but I’m into something natural that works! It’s still Summer in LA and Charleston for that matter but we are in the fall mood regardless, waiting to put on that sweater and boots and get that skin perfected in time for holidays. Do you have any clean secret products that work for sun damaged skin?  Please share!

While you are checking out Jess’s blog see this awesome turmeric tea receipt…i’m going to try it soon!  Her blog is just so wonderful and inspiring…love her!

  1. Kahina Giving Beauty Brightening Serum fades stubborn sunspots and melasma in six weeks flat, just in time for holiday parties! (use AM and PM for best results)
  2. Yuli Skincare’s Metamorphic Elixir contains naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, which pulls moisture deep into the skin.  It amps up the power of any moisturizer or serum you’re already using and it smells amazing.  The perfect toner. (use AM & PM immediately after cleansing)
  3. Suntegrity Natural Moisturizing Facial Sunscreen and Primer is great under makeup.  Just because it’s not summer doesn’t mean you can go unprotected!
  4. Kjaer Weiss Eye Shadow in Magnetic is the perfect neutral for all skin tones and the gorgeous compact is refillable.
  5. Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner in Arabian Nights is the fool-proof way to a berry lip that won’t dry out.

Beau Dunn’s BarbiesSeptember 16, 2014

BARBIE-ROUNDUP

 

If you’ve ever met Beau Dunn or seen her picture on Instagram, you know that she is gorgeous. A model like her mama, she’s also the talented artist best known for her series of Barbie portraits, titled “Plastic”. I’m lucky enough to own the print at the top :) I like the way these vintage Barbies look so much better than modern ones! Which is your favorite?

You buy these amazing prints at Clic Gallery here.

Back 2 SchoolSeptember 10, 2014

BACK-TO-SCHOOL-STUFF

 

As a mother, it’s always a little emotional getting ready for the new school year to begin (holding back the tears as you wave goodbye). I can’t believe Elle is already starting the 2nd grade! I remember waiting for the day of her birth as if it was today, filled with love of the human inside me….now she’s a big girl reading and writing like a champ.  She’s got such great nutty side.  I love it so much.

Anyway, I like to spoil her at the beginning of the new year as I remember that being the most exciting part of the school year for me.  New backpack, new pencils, new clothes. Below are some of our favorite things at the moment.  Happy New School Year!!  xo-Marysia

STAYcationSeptember 2, 2014

CHATEAUMARMONT

The weekend before Labor Day my lovely friends came to visit me in sunny California. We had a relaxing weekend at Chateau Marmont, hanging by the pool and just catching up. We originally all met each other in Charleston, SC where I started this business, and they all inspired me in the process. Chassity was literally you taught me what a blog is!  I’m so lucky to have such good girlfriends who will make the far trip to see me in my new element…LA!  Miss them already..love you girls!

We all have our own businesses and to be able to talk with others in a similar boat is soo nice:

Sally King Benedict is an amazing artist – see for yourself on her website

Jane Pope Cooper designs beautiful delicate jewelry – you can shop it here

Chassity Evans writes the incredible lifestyle blog Look Linger Love …she makes me want to shop so watch out!

Even though I didn’t travel far, being away with my friends for a relaxing girls’ weekend was just the thing I needed before summer ends and reality sets in again. We ate dinner at my favorite spots; Farm Shop and Locanda Portefino….and new for me The Chateau restaurant (yum!).  Farm Shop is at the Brentwood Country Mart (one of my fav shopping destinations as well) and it’s sooo sooo good!  I think the girls enjoyed it as much as I did.  Then Locanda Portefino is my all-time favorite Italian restaurant that has been described as best in the US by Italians :) ( I have been going for 10 years!) Mmmm makes my mouth water just talking about it.  Anyways, if you are in LA, I highly recommend those two…highly!

We shopped a little bit too..Sally scored a vintage Celine at Decades ! Sooo good!

What did you do to celebrate the last days of summer?

EVENING-BAGS-PINTEREST-ROUNDUP

Watching the Emmys this week and seeing all the amazing outfits really inspired me. I’ve been on the hunt for a new evening bag for ages without having much luck. Then I thought- what a perfect way to add some whimsy and humour to basic evening attire. I now have my eye on every single one of these bags. Which one is your favorite?

Racked ‘Young Guns’ 2014August 1, 2014

YOUNG GUNS

I’m excited to share some fun news with you-I’m a Young Gun!

Young Guns are a group of up-and-coming designers. In Racked‘s words:

We started back in May by asking for reader submissions. Then we assembled a team of experts—designers like Pamela Love, Steven Alan, and Tibi’Amy Smilovic, plus some of the best retail buyers in New York and LA—to help us comb through over 500 nominees. Along the way, we profiled a few of the designers with the best stories, and let you in on our list of the top 50.

There were 15 winners, ranging in age from 24 to 35…and my brand was one of them!

I feel so honoured to be in the company of such great talents like Rosie Assoulin and Rachel Mansur + Floriana Gavriel of Mansur Gavriel. The following quotes really made my heart soar-special thanks to the two ladies who said such nice things about my little brand.

“Simplicity done well is a lot harder to pull off then over-the-top decadence,” says Claire Distenfeld of Upper East Side boutique Fivestory. “Marysia does simplicity to perfection and has created suits that are not only super chic but I think the best in the business.” Jeweler Lizzie Fortunato adds, “I think the design is just really there. It seems like a pretty organic operation and it just exploded.”

Here are some images from the celebratory at The Lion in NYC’s Greenwich Village:

Santa BarbaraJuly 29, 2014

SANTA-BARBARA-PACKING-LIST

Between the stress of having our Resort 2015 photo shoot (fun preview and behind the scenes post coming soon), and rush of traveling to Miami for Cabana and then flying to NYC for the Racked Young Guns dinner (more on that later too!)-it’s definitely time for a vacation! Nothing like a little R&R with the family in Santa Barbara to calm the nerves and really enjoy the last days of summer.  I recently purchased this Cire Trudon candle and it’s devine…i love having a beautiful scent around so I’m packing it with.  I love all the other things on the list as well and can not wait to be there.

Katie Ermilio’s Summer EssentialsJuly 22, 2014

When we first saw fashion designer Katie Ermilio’s clothes, we knew she would be our kinda gal. Her simple tailoring and feminine silhouettes drew us in immediately (plus we knew she had great taste because she wears Marysia SWIM!)

Q&A

We asked Katie some questions about her summer essentials and she delivered. Enjoy reading about her must-haves, and check out her Resort 2015 trunkshow on Moda Operandi today.

Summer is in full-swing and one of my favourite things to do in the evening is lounge with my family and friends outside on my patio. I thought I would share some yummy cocktail recipes that won’t sabotage your bikini body. Feel free to indulge in one (or two…I won’t tell!) without fear of not looking fab in your Marysia bikini the next day!

We will be there in good company with so many other amazing brands. Not only can you shop, but there will be snacks, a blow-dry bar, manicures and makeup applications. There are activities for the kids, including a DIY cupcake decorating station- so fun!

Perfect Mother’s Day GiftsMay 8, 2014

MOTHER'S-DAY

I like what LLL (look linger love) had to say about Mother’s Day…that as mothers, all we care about is the well-being of our children. That is the key to a mother’s happy heart…

…But if someone so chooses to get us a little ‘something’-something’, we won’t turn it down! So here is a guide to the daddies of our happy little families.

Photography Roundup: Leila JeffreysApril 30, 2014

If you follow me on Pinterest then you have probably noticed that I’m a bit obsessed with adding art to my collection. Clic Gallery/Bookstore/General Store was just around the corner from my place in NYC and it’s where I bought Tola her amazing 1st birthday present. The wonderful owner Christiane Celle is also the founder of another old neighbourhood store – Calypso St. Barth.

Anyway, it was at Clic that I first spotted these beautiful photographs by artist Leila Jeffreys:
