Munchkin Moments // Fall Fun

October 10, 2016

Our annual trip to the apple orchard was off to a great start! We planned it earlier this year so that there would actually be apples on the trees, fired up the Zipcar and hit the road! We took the hour long drive to Outhouse Orchards in North Salem, NY ready to grab ripe apples straight from the trees and come home for an #AllAppleEverything feast. But, when we arrived, the apple trees were bare. BARE bare.

Apparently, there was a frost in April that ruined 60% of the orchard's crops. Thanks mother nature!!  Sooooo... our apple picking weekend turned into a fall fun fest instead :)

My mother-in-law and niece were visiting so the girls hopped in the moon bounce, ate snacks and hung out together. The grown ups snacked and watched them enjoy themselves.

The weather looked out for us so we were able to enjoy a few rain free hours. And although we came home apple and pumpkin free, we had a great time.

Better luck next year ;)  #WishfulThinking

It's ok. Mommy doesn't need to see

The gang's all here! 

Black Lives Matter

September 23, 2016

We scream Black Lives Matter not because they matter more than other lives. We scream Black Lives Matter because, when black lives are taken by the people hired to protect ALL lives, justice is seldom served.

We scream Black Lives Matter because we need to remind people that a black life taken, is a human life taken. And when a black person is slain, they too deserve justice. Black Lives Matter. 

Far too often, black people are seen as a threat. Far too often, black people pay for crimes (committed or imagined) with their lives. Far too often, it is more dangerous to be black and assumed dangerous than it is to actually have a weapon. 

Black Lives Matter because, every time you kill one of us and don't offer consequences, you're telling us they don't. And so we respond, Black Lives Matter. 

Black Lives Matter because they do. And they should. And we'll keep saying it until the justice system shows us that they understand this simple fact too. 

I matter. You matter. Black Lives Matter. 

Munchkin Moments // Tea at Laduree

June 29, 2016

Logan and I LOVE macarons! A lot. So, when the school year wrapped and we were thinking of fun things to do, grabbing tea and macarons at Laduree was at the top of our list :)

Laduree is decorated beautifully with lush velvets and dark hues but we opted for the sun-filled courtyard because the weather begged for outside dining. I had just eaten but Logan opted for the rose infused french toast and I’m so glad she did! It was SO good! It was served with raspberry jam and rose infused whipped cream! Delicious is an understatement. 

Afterwards, we ordered macarons and tea. Everything about the experience was awesome. We sweetened our tea with sugar lumps and sipped it out of adorable china tea cups. And to top the experience off, they had gold imposed coasters with the letter ‘L’ printed on them. I’ll let you guess whether or not we swiped one to take home with us ;) 

It was so fun sharing this fancy experience with my little one. I can’t wait to share more experiences with her and we ‘take’ New York together.

Hello Sunshine!

June 16, 2016

From 80 degrees on Christmas Eve to a cool 60 degrees in June, we’ve experienced our fair share of temperature ups and downs this year. However, I am happy to report that the warmer temps are finally here to stay. *fingers crossed* 

When the weather warms up, we update our hair (braids anyone) and our skin care routines (heeeeeey SPF) so, why should our makeup wardrobes be any different? 

Here’s a quick list of the beauty goodies I’m loving for sunshine and high temps. As always, the theme is super simple because, let's face it, less is ALWAYS more ;) 

Sun Protection

Super Goop
SPF 50, no flash back and lightweight consistency. Yes please! I wear this everyday with or without makeup. P.S. we should be wearing SPF everyday no matter the season but, if you're one of the many peeps that skip this step, summertime is a great time to start! 


Whenever I wear a complexion product, it’s usually one of these beauties. Both are lightweight and super easy to apply. No brushes or sponges required. 

Going for the Glow? 

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint
This beauty is definitely my idea of a good time. It’s super lightweight consistency is perfect for the girl that wants a luminous glow with minimal coverage. I squeeze a bit in my palm and rub it onto my face like a moisturizer. So. GOOD.

Having a matte moment?

NARS Velvet Matte Skin Tint
This baby packs a bit more of a punch than my Glossier tint. It’s like your favorite tinted moisturizer and your favorite medium coverage foundation had a sweet little baby. It’s unfoundation. (not a word but, you get it!) 

Coverage? Yes. Cake? No. It has SPF 30 and optical diffusers so you’re basically wearing a filter. Yup... a #Filter. 


Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

I’ve been using (and LOVING) this Dior lip balm for a few weeks now and I’m hooked. The formula is hydrating and creamy but not sticky. And, it leaves the most gorgeous wash of color on the lips. I alternate between the coral and the pink shades but honestly, I love them both! 

Although I toss other products into the rotation here and there, these 4 are my go-to girls! What are you guys using for the warmer months? Ever tried any of these? Chime in below! 

Seeing is Believing ;)

I laid one of my favorite pairs of Bonlook glasses to rest last week. They were the first pair I purchased and after 3 long years of service, they called it quits. So, what do you do when you lose a pair of specs? Hop on your computer and purchase another pair right? Right!

Honestly, I’ve been ‘window shopping’ for new specs for a while and was looking for any excuse to grab a new pair. I considered my loss last week the universes way of telling me it was time to move forward with a new glasses purchase. 

Before we talk about my new specs, lets talk a bit about Bonlook. Are you looking for a fabulous pair of glasses that are both fun and functional? Something that let’s you show your personality AND helps you see the things that need seeing? Bonlook is the answer. Get a fabulous pair of frames and prescription lenses for $99 (sometimes less if you can catch a sale. Think: 30% off cat eye frames) I like to consider Bonlook Warby Parker’s younger, cooler sister. 

Now, back to my new favorite frames :) I first fell for the tortoise design. It’s pretty extra but stillsophisticated enough to not look like they’re part of a costume. And I love, Love, LOVE the shape! I have a very round noggin, full of BIG ideas of course, so shopping for frames that ‘get me’ is often a challenge. This shape is perfect because it’s large enough to not look like I have on someone else’s tiny glasses. And the cat eye is kinda funky. Long story short, I’m in love!! If you’re interested, my new pair is the ‘Jack and Norma Snappy.'

Run, don’t walk, on over to Bonlook and see what they have for you ;) 

Heeeeey Danielle Lewis Daily!

June 3, 2016

Hey guys!!! How's it going out there in internet land? Lot's has changed here so I figured I'd break it on down in a post. I've been writing about beauty in this space for over 4 years and it's been grand. And although I'm a beauty gal through and through, things have changed. I needed space to talk about more than just beauty. I want to talk about life, mommy hood and of course my new favorite mascara :) Transitioning That Beauty Blog into Danielle Lewis Daily allows me to do just that. I'm looking forward to sharing here and I hope you'll pop back from time to time and join the conversation. 

I also launched a new inspired lifestyle platform called Coffee Shops and Laptops that I'm super excited about! Head there to read stories of movers and shakers making things happen in unconventional ways! CSLT is a project that allows me to get inspired by freelancers, entrepreneurs, dreamers and doers and then pass that inspiration on to all of you! Check it out here

I'll see you around these internet streets soon ;) 

All the Best,
