  • The 2017 Pantone Color of the Year is Greenery

    The year 2016 was all about balance, with Pantone naming two colors as the Color of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Now, with 2017 upon us, it's time for a brand new Color of the Year. This year is all about new beginnings, with Pantone announcing Greenery as the 2017 Color of the Year.


    In the announcement, Pantone explained that Greenery (PANTONE 15-0343) is a yellow-green shade, "that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew." The hope is that it reminds consumers to, "take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate." With a contentious election that just ended a few weeks ago, and a new president taking office in January, this is certainly an important message to remember and take to heart.  Continue reading

  • Demi Lovato Covers Adele's "When We Were Young" At Cleveland Concert

    Adele's voice is pure gold. From "Hello" to "Someone Like You," she has an incredible sound to her that most singers, no matter how talented, would never begin to attempt to mimic. Except for one... the talented Demi Lovato, of course. The singer is currently on her tour for "Future Now: The Tour." During her Cleveland performance on Friday, September 2nd, Demi surprised and stunned the audience with a cover of Adele's "When We Were Young."

    Youtuber JWBGSU explained that while on stage, Demi explained that she had a special treat for Cleveland and that she wanted to sing one of her favorite songs. But, she had never sung it before. In true Demi fashion, she went on to sing the emotional ballad "When We Were Young," and it was obviously amazing. Check out a video of the performance below.

    In just one week, the fan-uploaded video of Demi's performance already has over 700,000 views. A sign of just how incredible Demi's version of Adele's song is.  Continue reading

  • You Voted, And Now We Have A New M&Ms Flavor

    While the presidential election season has been heated, Mars decided to have a little fun and cast a 2016 election of their own. M&M's fans had from March 1st through June 17th this year to vote for which of four peanut flavor ideas they'd like to see in stores: Chili Nut, Honey Nut, Coffee Nut, and Original Nut (some might call it the OG!). M&M's said that the four nut flavors "are going head-to-head" in a consumer promotion to determine America's Favorite Peanut.

    The polls are in, the people have spoken, and the nut of choice is Coffee Nut (of course, OG Nut won't be going anywhere, though)! We're thinking some huge Starbucks fans may have been swaying the polls on this one. The new flavor will be in stores in August, so keep a look-out for it.

    The announcement of the winner was made this past Monday, July 25th, on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in a pretty silly video featuring actor Tony Hale talking to his BFF, Yellow M&M.

    The big question that it seems like we'll just have to wait until August for is whether or not the new Coffee Nut M&M's will include many people's favorite part about coffee... the caffeine! A little chocolate.. a little caffeine... could make for a nice afternoon snack, rather than stopping by Starbucks to pick up that frapp. Then again, with October just around the corner, who could say no to a Pumpkin Spice Latte? So, maybe it's not so much about one or the other, but eating Coffee Nut M&M's while drinking Starbucks! This fall's looking pretty promising already...

  • Faviana On The Red Carpet of the 2016 Tony Awards

    Our favorite dress designers can always be found on some of the most hotly anticipated red carpets, with the most recent sighting being Faviana on the 2016 Tony Awards red carpet. The 70th Annual Tony Awards was held on June 12, and Joelle Garguilo and Donna Karger were reporting straight from the red carpet to show off all of the hottest celebrity dresses. Of course, if they are reporting on celeb looks, they have to be dressed to impress, as well. So, the two reporters wowed the crowds themselves in Faviana dresses. Read on to see what they wore!

    Faviana Tony Awards

    New York Live's reporter and producer, Joelle Garguilo, looked sultry in Faviana 7755, one of our hottest sellers. The plunging v-neck on this faille satin dress ads the perfect amount of allure to an otherwise simplistic and classic design, making it so perfect for just about any occasion. Whether homecoming, guest of a wedding, a charity event, or the red carpet, this style is classic and classy. The front is draped, which adds texture to the full length skirt, a high slit reveals a tantalizing touch of skin, and the back is adorned with thin straps and ruching in a manner that provides a slimming effect, flattering the figure in all the right spots.

    You can see Joelle in action on the Tony's red carpet in the below video. She opened up her segment by mentioning that all eyes are on the musical Hamilton, but our eyes were on her in that gorgeous Faviana dress!  Continue reading

  • Our Miss New Jersey 2016 is Brenna Weick

    The Miss New Jersey 2016 Pageant was held this past weekend in our very own backyard, Ocean City, NJ. The pageant had the perfect backdrop on the Ocean City boardwalk in the Music Peir, and all of the contestants looked gorgeous.

    Ultimately, it all came down to one girl, and it was a very special girl this year, as she is no stranger to the Miss New Jersey pageant. Brenna Weick, of Mantua, Gloucester County, is our new Miss New Jersey 2016!

  • Deshauna Barber is Our Miss USA 2016!

    The Miss USA pageant is always fun to watch, as there are so many talented, beautiful women, all competing for the right to wear one crown. This year's competition was especially fierce, but it ultimately came down to two: Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, and Miss Hawaii, Chelsea Hardin. They were both asked difficult interview questions, and stunned all with their answers. It couldn't have been a closer call, but Miss District of Columbia, Deshauna Barber, is now reporting for duty as our new Miss USA 2016!


    Yup, that's right: she is reporting for duty because she is an Army Reserve officer, and showed just how much the army means to her in her response to her interview question. The 26-year-old from the nation's capital was asked by judge Joe Zee whether the Pentagon's decision to open up all combat roles to women had, "put political correctness over our military ability to perform." The 1st Lt. responded in style, saying, "As a woman in the United States Army, I think it was an amazing job by our government to allow women to integrate into every branch of the military."  Continue reading

  • Selena Gomez and Ronda Rousey Stun in Black Dresses on SNL

    This past week's Saturday Night Live show was full of girl power, with two of the biggest women celebrities hosting and performing on the show. While the East Coast was suffering from a major snow storm, nothing stopped MMA athlete and former bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey from showing her acting chops, and actress and musician Selena Gomez from performing some totally sizzling numbers (melting that snow and ice right away!). When opening up the show, Ronda explained that it was her first time on live TV without being hit in the face (can we say badass??), and Selena showed just how great of a singer she is with stripped-down medleys of "Good for You" and "Same Old Love."

    We loved every minute of watching them on the SNL stage... and we especially loved all of the sexy dresses the two wore throughout the show! While Ronda was a staple part of the entire SNL show that night, constantly changing outfits and dresses, our favorite looks from both celebs came when it was time for Selena to take the stage for her performances. During this time, they both wore totally sleek and sexy black gowns that had us dreaming of prom. Check out what they wore (and Selena's performance!) in the video below. Then, read on to see how you can get their looks for prom.

    Both of them looked amazing, right? Get their looks with the dresses below - you'll find two choices for each celeb style. Continue reading
