Happy Friday!

June 15, 2018

We're still knee deep in the reno process, but things are finally starting to come together. Somehow, we've gotten used to living in the basement and not having a real television. Aside from Conor McGregor Notorious (which we thoroughly enjoyed) and Ali Wong's comedy special (hysterical, especially if you're a mom), we haven't watched a single thing. I actually don't miss the TV at all as it's given me a chance to dive back into reading - something I have missed. 


Spring & Summer Dressing: What I’d wear to a 9-5 job.

June 14, 2018

Lately, I've been receiving more and more messages asking me to share what I'd wear to a 9-5 job or to an important meeting. This pretty much sums up one of my go-to outfits if you don't work in a suit-dressing environment.

It probably looks weird that I'm wearing a sweater in June, but the weather has been so incredibly fickle these past few weeks.


It’s Been a Sad Week | On Mental Illness

June 8, 2018

This past week has been a rough one. When I first heard about the death of Kate Spade, I sat there in complete and utter shock. So many thoughts running through my head: how much pain does someone have to be in to take their lives? To leave a little girl behind? I felt completely heartbroken for her and her entire family. 

Then, this morning, waking up to the news of Anthony Bourdain sent me into such a state of sadness.


A Preview of Our Backyard

June 6, 2018

To say that our backyard has come a long way is an understatement (you can find the before photos here). Keith and I shot a ton of photos this past weekend, which I'll be sharing soon, but here's a little preview. I was planning to reveal it all at once, but I was too excited not to share a little glimpse.


Alwyn Court

June 5, 2018

I've been blogging for over eight years (crazy!) and this is the first time we shot in front on this architectural beauty (located on 58th & 7th). Furthermore, this is the first time I actually stopped to really admire it, rather than quickly walking by. That tends to happen, doesn't it? Especially in our own cities, something I'm trying to be way more mindful of.
