New York Fashion Week is right around the corner, and many of us are excited to see what our favorite designers have created to make the Spring/Summer of 2019 fabulous. Not everyone makes the list of editors, fashion bloggers, and influencers in attendance. But thanks to social media, we too can have an inside look at the latest trends in real time just like our favorite style mavens, only better.

Why fret over being invited to the shows when you can watch them with amazing people you know? In fact, you can have the time of your life with a few like-minded people right in your living room. With excellent conversations, delicious snacks, and good fashion, you can create a watch party that's legendary.

We chatted with a professional event planner, Jay Simms, of J. Simms Events and she gave us thoughtful tips to make your NYWF Watch Party one for the books without breaking the bank:

Your Theme is Key

Every year, designers create new themes to capture the essence of their lines. Picking a theme is the foundation of your party. Whether you're going for a futuristic-chic or a darker aesthetic theme, it must be attention-grabbing. Add your theme to invitations and decorations. You can find inspiration in songs, fashion trends, or fashion icons.

Some ideas include Purple Rain (Shades of Purple), Feelin' Dapper (similar Gucci looks by Dapper Dan), and Modern Romance (delicate florals and pastel hues).

Jay Simms got us all the way together for Fashion Week! And with these great tips, you're ready to host a bomb party that won't be soon forgotten.

Remember, you can watch shows Live Stream on your big screen at

Kissing is interesting. When it's a good kiss, there aren't too many other things that tops it. When it (pardon the pun) sucks, there aren't too many things that you hate more. Even as I'm running through the mental rolodex of all of the kisses I've had in my life, I'm willing to bet my next freelance check that, just like I am able to, you can immediately recall the best and worst kiss that you've ever had.

I know, I know. Traditionally, the bride's parents is responsible for paying for the wedding. My family just isn't set up that way. When we decided that we were going to have a wedding, we talked openly and agreed going in that we would be covering all of the expenses, and needed to remember that with each decision.

A few months ago, I had a breakthrough. After a promotion led to me having a completely different supervisor, what was once a five-year plan to transition out of the organization I was working at, turned into five-month plan. It's a scary point in my life that I haven't found myself at before: I'm not leaving a job because I want better pay or a higher position, I want to leave simply because I'm unhappy.

It's Gemini season, ladies! It's time to take advantage of this communicative time of year and spend time with people we like and thanks to the big Mercurian energy you'll feel over the next two weeks, you'll have the boost of charm you need to make any interaction a win.

Socializing is dope and all, but we all know that there's no better way to kick it with someone than to sit in silence for hours at a time for an epic binge session.

Even before I went to look up the word to make sure I understood what it meant, a statement that has always made me wince in my mind is "I don't have any regrets" (or some variation of that).
