What We’re Wearing: Nina’s Lipgloss Is Front And Center

What I'm Wearing: "I planned my entire outfit around my pink lipgloss (Birthday Cake by Bare Essentials). I used to wear a lot of black clothes and I've been trying to make a conscious effort to wear colors. Do I look like an Easter egg? My top, belt, and socks are from H&M, jeans from Gap, shoes from Aldo, and purse and bracelet are from a street vendor. My necklace is a Buddhist pendant, a gift from my mom."
My Warm Weather Beauty Tip: "My warm weather beauty tip: My long, fine hair and bangs get so sweaty in the summer heat so I'm all about pinned back hair, braids, and updos. So I guess I'd say I stay stocked up on bobby pins, hair ties, and headbands in the summer. Oh, and dry hair shampoo for the greasy days!"

Favorite New Restaurant: "I've been spending a lot of time exploring my neighborhood, Astoria, especially now that the weather is getting nice enough to stroll around. Pachanga Patterson just opened up near my
apartment and I just love the small, intimate atmosphere and their pork belly enchiladas."

On My To-Do List: "My daily to-do list is way too long and boring to share. On my "want to-do list" is to go to a Yankee game or visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden for the cherry blossoms."
