Despite a snowstorm here in NYC the day after the Spring Equinox, a change of season will surely be on its way soon -- and with that, Festival season! I'm teaming up with Teva, a footwear brand I've worked with over the years <3 to give 5 lucky winners and their friends a pair of Teva Originals and a $100 gift card. 

Enter by following the instructions on this Instagram post. The contest ends 3/30! 

In addition to the giveaway, Teva also asked myself and few other bloggers what our perfect festival style is. You can check out the "Worn Well" feature here

This year, if time allows, I want to make it to the Newport Jazz Festival. I've always somehow missed it in the general summer hooplah, but if I'm able to make my way up this year, you can be sure I'll be bringing my pair of Tevas (or 5) along.

I'm really stoked to announce I've partnered with to give y'all a chance to win a $1,000 shopping spree! See the details and enter here. Contest ends July 15th!

Fab is a destination for curated home goods, cute tech equipment, and much more. Below, I'm reviewing three of my favorite Fab essentials to #UpgradeYourEveryday.

HD Action Cube Camera with Wi-Fi by Polaroid

I was beyond jazzed to test out this tiny action cam. Carrying around my bulky DSLR for video is pretty tough, which is why I don't make much video content. With the Cube, however, I didn't need a heavy lens or tripod. It was just grab-and-go... so much fun! I can't recommend this camera enough. It records in HD and has Wi-Fi capabilities built right in. 

I took some test footage and chopped up a video I made with my Cube from a recent trip to the Hamptons, which you can watch below. I won't ever leave for a trip without my Cube again! Pssst... it also takes still photos, too!

Once back to Brooklyn, I unboxed my Crosley turntable and took it to the park for some vinyl listening outside. It converts your records to digital so you can listen to them via your computer or phone. I have some pretty cool live recordings, one of them being the Beach Boys in Concert, so I was thrilled to be able to convert my records into a digital format.

Last, but not least, I picked out this tassel keychain that doubles as a phone charger! I can hook it to my bag so I don't have to carry around my phone charger (and I don't need an outlet to give my phone an extra boost of juice, either.) It has a handy charging cord for my iPhone in a chic package so I can keep snapping, 'gramming, and tweeting without interruption. 

How many times have to had to duck into a coffee shop or a bar for a charge? With one of these, those days are over.
