Charlotte Tilbury beauty products have slowly become staples in my makeup wardrobe since its inception. I first fell in love when I discovered her Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette, which gives me the perfect bronze and highlight, just like its name indicates. Then my lipstick collection grew, thanks to the amazing sets that she offers. All of her lipstick shades look amazing on my skin tone, and the formula really keeps my lips moisturized through every season.

I was thrilled to learn she recently launched the Quick 'N' Easy collection which consists of four looks (two day looks and two night looks) that serve perfectly for a woman-on-the-go. Each of the looks only take 5 minutes to put on – perfect for the quintessential New York lady who only has a couple minutes before she heads out! An absolute necessity in my book. In the photos above I'm wearing the Natural Glowing Look at The Whitney Museum, and the Charlotte Tilbury's Red Carpet Party Look at The Met Breuer.

Jasha Spa was gorgeous, with an atmosphere inspired by healing herbs and organic ingredients amid a harmonious relaxation lounge. We enjoyed a couple massage in the double treatment suite, along with the indoor pools, saunas, jacuzzis, and beauty salon.

We had quite a few meals at the casual yet elegant Uá Culinary Artisans, translated as "home" in the local language Cochimí. Uá was the focal point restaurant at JW Marriott Los Cabos, and we dined alongside views of the Sea of Cortez. It offered a carefully selected menu of international appealing culinary experiences with an variety of fresh and organic food using local Baja ingredients.

"The most sublime point between the desert and the sea."

Hoon and I spent our Christmas weekend at the warm and sophisticated JW Marriott Los Cabos. Designed by Jim Olsen, a world-renowned architect, it opened less than two years ago in the fall of 2015. It was a full house this stay, with all 299 rooms and suites filled with guests seeking a chic getaway from their daily lives. The aesthetic of the property was like none other, and it was apparent that every detail was accounted for. The soft neutral tones of the rooms with marble, wood, and natural textures paid homage to the Baja California Peninsula desert and the sea. With a vantage point of the Sea of Cortez from every perspective throughout the resort, we were taken by its beauty. There was no shortage of pool-time either as the 11 infinity pools of fresh water and salt water kept us busy when we were not dipping our toes into the ocean. Special thanks to Laura for taking care of us and thank you JW Marriott for an amazing holiday away under the warm Mexican sun.
