Go a few buttons deep into the world of the Buttonista, the Capital Region’s most fashion-forward gal. Tips and tricks, steals and deals, people and places. Almost always has a Miller Lite in hand.
Airstream Dreams and Weeping at the Nail Salon
*Ahem* don't you dare press play until you've taken your first sip and officially joined the Buttonista's #FirstSipClub, AKA the least exclusive (but most important?) club in the world if you're in the business of starting your days off right. This episode, expect a full staycation recap after a weekend well spent at June Farms and what it means to the Buttonista to spend time in nature, unplugged from Instagram and surrounded by the best of the best. Also: not making "blarf" a thing this fall, why crying in the nail salon was inevitable and acceptable, and five things the Buttonista just really wants to tell you like, right now. #NobodyAskedMeBut

When The Heels Came Off
Thank God It's Tuesday! Grab your coffee and a big, fat bottle of Essentia Water and detox with the Buttonista as we head into another week of fall in Upstate New York. This week, wedding weekend is deconstructed, a new type of honeymoon is invented on the spot and playoff sports play a consistent role in recent activities and the future outlook on life.

What's Up While Instagram Is Down
Thank God It's Tuesday but, um, don't thank God for the ironically odd start the Buttonista's new life has gotten off to with Instagram and Facebook being down the day a full-time role doing social media begins. But despite that, the Buttonista's schedule is jam packed with a whole lotta new, from a new podcast studio setup with all the latest equipment, to the pre-my-best-friend's-wedding-jitters hence the loss of the train of thought here and there throughout the show. Follow along if you can...sip a Miller for some liquid courage and support.

I Need SPANX And I Need Them Now
THANK GOD IT'S TUESDAY! It's the Buttonista's last week working in the corporate world and aside having the freedom to be the hashtag #GirlBoss she was destined to be (just kidding), it's pretty obvious the most exciting opportunity is being able to head back to the gym and fit into those aspirational jeans again. And also, have no fear fall is finally here --in fact it just started --so listen up for a few quick tips on how to enter into this new season in an organized, pumpkin-filled fashion.

Weird and Wonderful
THANK GOD IT'S TUESDAY! And perhaps, in the world of the Buttonista, one of the most significant Tuesdays of all time. The day where we are able to celebrate the best day of the year ... the 21st Night of September. This one is weird, wonderful and cliché as hell because the stars have aligned and this is all just simply meant to be. Wanna see what we mean? Just take a listen.

Hate It Or Love It: 2021 Met Gala Looks
THANK GOD IT'S TUESDAY! Finally, we are embracing fall and getting right the F to it with a fresh, fabulous and occasionally questionable series of looks from the 2021 Met Gala and MTV Awards. But have no fear, the Buttonista is here with the help of one hell of an Instagram Poll series recapping all the hits and misses from The Met where YOU dished your very own hot takes on celeb fashion. That's not it, though --today's episode also features some lessons learned for us regular people out there, and it wouldn't be complete without a quick forecast of what's in for this coming season.
