Lately, I've found myself gravitating toward the same makeup most days of the week. While my bathroom cart is brimming with products, I tend to grab the above items on a daily basis to achieve a bright-eyed, simple look. Bonus: it takes less than 5 minutes.Read More
Ah, pet ownership. Sometimes it can be hard, especially when living in the city, but it's so worth it! As a city gal, I don't have a dog door or a big, fenced in yard to let Maggie play in all day. We walk Maggie in the morning and evening and she spends time with her (wonderful) dog walker during the day. She makes friends at the local dog hotspot, the arboretum, enjoys getting treats and "dog water" at local businesses and has become a favorite among the neighborhood kids.Read More
Stitch Fix, a personal stylist in a box service, is now offering petite and maternity clothing! While I was a fan of the company before (one of my go-to pairs of jeans is from them, as is the lavender tunic in my profile picture), I often found that the clothing they sent was simply too big.Read More
Looking to get your hair cut in the next month or so? Well don't schedule anything yet! If you can wait til April 12th, top salons throughout the country will offer discounted haircuts and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Boston Children's Hospital for the HAIRraising Cut-a-Thon. Over 100 salons have already signed up with the hopes to raise $200,000 for the hospital, and this is slated to be their biggest event yet.Read More
Curves. Yup, I've got those. As much as we're taught to embrace our bodies, sometimes it's hard. When you're just under 5', and all of your body parts are shorter than average, any hint of a curve is noticeable. There are some days when I love my little hourglass figure, and there are others where I wish my legs were longer, my butt a little less round, my stomach flatter, my waist more defined. Though I can only speak for myself, I imagine that whether you're a size 2, a size 12 or a size 22, you have confident days when you feel you look your best, and you have days when you wish you could hide in your puffy coat or stay home alone in pajamas.Read More
Just wanted to pop in and share a fun guest post I wrote for Wayfair as part of their Homemakers program. It's all about creating a signature cocktail for your wedding. (No, I'm not currently planning my own wedding. Sorry guys!) Each of the cocktails is made with St. Elder, the natural elderflower liqueur that I market for work. Hop on over and take a peek!
You can also find a few of my favorite bar pieces around the site, and check out my cocktail party idea board for inspiration.Read More
Shopping for bridesmaid dresses can be...difficult. My little sister Sophie is getting married this summer and has tasked her bridal party with finding their own dresses. The bridal party is spread across two continents- Sophie lives in and is getting married in Israel, and part of the bridal party is there- so Sophie thought it made the most sense for everyone to choose their own dresses in a similar shade: light blue.Read More
Looking for a simple Valentine's Day cookie recipe? Don't worry, I've got you covered. Ever since I stumbled upon the brownie roll-out cookie recipe in The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, I've wanted to give it a try. The dough is similar to that of a sugar cookie and can be rolled and cut into whatever shape your heart desires. With Valentine's Day coming up and my new v-day themed sprinkles (thanks mom!) in tow, I whipped out the heart shaped cookie cutters and got baking!Read More
Sigh. The Boden catalog came the other day, and if I was the type to put sticky flags on catalog pages of things I love, there would have been more flagged than not flagged pages. From beautiful florals, to birds to Le Breton stripe t-shirts in practically every color, the catalog screams Spring and I want everything.
I wish they had the catalog images online so I could share them with you, but these screenshots will have to do. Enjoy!
