My first Buzzfeed quote – yup that’s me. Don’t judge.
I had the time of my life on this adventure. I also highly recommend this subscription to anyone who frequently flies from New York to Boston. Read more about FlyBeacon below.
Fly Beacon is a subscription flight service co-founded by Wade Eyerly, a former Defense Intelligence Agency employee and Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign staffer who founded Surf Air. The company would work like the Netflix DVD service, but for private flights.
A $2,000 monthly membership fee gets you as many flights as you want between White Plains and Boston (there will also be seasonal service to Nantucket and the Hamptons – YAHS). Customers can fly as much as they want but will have to give up one flight if they cancel last minute. Members also get a guest pass that will be waived in the beginning which is why you should sign up now.
This subscription makes sense financially if you are flying back and forth more than 3 times a month. I think this service definitely makes sense for companies as well because the convenience. Flights can be booked in 10 seconds through the mobile app – another convenient aspect about the seamless process.
I can’t wait until they start flying to the Hamptons – skipping that traffic will be life changing and save so much time.
Our Swiss-made Pilatus PC-12 comfortably seats 6. “This is a Lexus,” Eyerly says, “it’s a nice sedan, not a Ferrari; it’s a strong, great plane.”
That’s the Buzzfeed writer who threw up on the flight – poor guy.

Dinner with Vogue x Brahmin for the debut of their new collection was stunning. One thing I truly miss about California is the dinner parties at our houses with family and friends but this dinner made me feel like I was at home – so quaint and perfect. Not to mention the new collection is my newest obsession – I take my Brahmin crossbody everywhere.

It’s festival season and you need some cute bikinis for the pool – NEED. I recently discovered Swimwear 360 which has one of the best selections for your pool parties and beach adventures. I love this white two piece because it makes me look a little more tan than usual – which is necessary when you go from New York to Palm Springs – necessary people. Shop away here for more styles;)
Also Century 21 is my go to for ALL festival accessories and pieces including these amazeball Tom Ford sunnies. For more photos from my Coachella weekend adventures visit their Instagram @century21stores.

Get outside, go on a rooftop, get your butt to the gym, make a list of restaurants and bars you want to try, go to a comedy show, visit a museum or plan a weekend getaway. There is happiness in the air here. Spring has sprung my friends.
I’m just excited I can wear 2 layers instead of 5. This coat that looks like a robe is amazing – kind of feel like a lady pimp/Easter bunny when I wear it. It’s just so comfortable and easy to throw on and it matches my Nike kicks perfectly. Huge win.
I almost cried 3 times Sunday because it was one of those days where I was just so happy – whatever sometimes I get emotional. I started the day kickboxing with Jinna, got smoothies at Liqueteria and then met up with Alie and Geoff to hang on the roof, have long talks about life and then eat at EN Japanese Brasserie.
Life is beautiful and I love all of you in it. Smile on:)
“Some people fold after making one timid request. They quit too soon. Keep asking until you find the answers. In sales there are usually four or five “no’s” before you get a “yes.” “

“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.”
We also went to Joe’s Shanghai followed by another bar and then karaoke – highly recommend activities – in that order.

New Armani Exchange sneak peak – obsessed with all the cobalt pieces.
So today was kind of amazing. Woke up, ran a little, went to brunch with Paris Hilton for her new fragrance at the Baccarat Hotel in New York, Ubered over to preview the new Armani Exchange collection and then went into the office. I’d call that a solid Wednesday.
First of all Paris’ new fragrance is amazing and the bottle design is so her – love. #sparkleonsparkle
Second – we are both going to be backstage at Coachella and I’m really excited because I’ve never been to a music festival before.
Thirdly, I recently discovered Bella Terra Cosmetics - http://www.bellaterracosmetics.com. I love all natural make up and products and this site only has mineral cosmetics and the quality is amazing. (Also try their exfoliating gel!)
And lastly, the new Baccarat Hotel just opened up today… It is by far the most stunning hotel I have ever seen and I have been to a lot of hotels. I’m a sucker for chandeliers and they have hundreds around the hotel so I was swoon at first sight. Definitely stop in for a drink at their bar on the second floor too – marble, fur, roses, luxe mirrors everywhere – it’s a palace. Baccarat definitely went all out which is why I respect their brand so much – they keep it glamorous but not too gaudy.
Have a happy humpday everybody:)
Inspirations of the day:
“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”
“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.”
@rescueskin is my favorite skincare product BY FAR – follow me on insta for more;) @amy_marietta
