beckie+martina, the top personal styling team in New York, are two former fashion models who refined their style while appearing on the covers of Elle, Vogue and Marie Claire. Their private clients include men and women from tech, finance, politics and entertainment and celebrities like Molly Sims, Lindsay Lohan and Bridget Moynahan. Celebrity stylist Stacy London handpicked them to revamp her style for her TLC series, What Not To Wear and Love, Lust or Run. “Most importantly, they'll take the time to understand your needs and customize the shopping experience around your personal brand," says one of their private clients. "Beckie and Martina are the best personal stylists in New York - they are super fun and can make even the most anxious shopper feel comfortable. I highly recommend them for anyone looking to take their wardrobe to the next level." @beckieandmartina
Our Goal of the Day:
To make a positive difference in the lives of others and have fun doing it!
Thought of the Day:
Martina: Perfection is the enemy of the good.
Beckie: Remember when you wanted what you currently have.
Our Action of the Day:
The next right action! Which we do to the very best of our ability with whatever or whoever we are at that moment. (multitasking is a myth!)
Our Deed of the Day: Everyday we try to give something away - whether it's a styling tip, shopping suggestion or compliment -- a helpful piece of information that will hopefully move someone's life or even just their day forward in some positive way.
Our Tip of the Day: One of our favorites from Benjamin Dover: "It's okay to look back at the past. Just don't stare."

A Day in Our life:
What do you love most about Your City?
Martina: Walking the streets of NYC and watching people.
Beckie: Love how hundreds of neighborhoods are woven together, each a little hometown within themselves with their own unique energy. The diversity and endless amount of choices in this city make it almost impossible to leave.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Martina: Coffee. I don’t eat breakfast.
Beckie: Eggs and soldiers at Balthazar. At home it’s the smoothies my husband makes for me every morning.
What are you doing at:
Martina: Having that coffee and enjoying the solitude before everyone else gets up.
Beckie: Meditating, having tea, getting kids off to school.
10:00 AM - We are working! Either with a client or preparing for one.
12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
When we have time, Martina loves San Ambrose for Cacio e pepe, Beckie loves Balthazar for french fries and the Balthazar Salad and we are both long time devotees to Bar Pitti. When we’re on the go, sushi at the counter of Dean and Deluca.
7:00 PM - We’re either still at work, at some work event or heading home to switch gears from work to family time. We also have a strong community of friends we’re out with from time to time and, if it’s a Tuesday, on the Pier 25 Volleyball court in Tribeca (Go team Funky Bunch!)
11:00 PM - B+M: Complete mental checkout time — asleep or heading there.
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
Beckie: Lots and lots of water.
Martina: Water and Gatorade.
After hours it’s usually Pinot Grigio.
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
We use our text message, Instagram, and email apps the most.
Accounts we like are @Bat_gio and @manrepeller (hilarious and stylish) and @thefatjewish for just mindless laughs.
What should everyone try at least once?
Martina: Go sky diving - I haven’t done it yet but hoping to find the nerve to do one day.
Beckie: Live in another country for at least 6 months or more.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
Martina: Da Adolfo Positano - my favorite place in the world. Can’t get physically lost there but mentally.
Beckie: Pretty much anywhere as long as there's good food and I’m with people I love.
