Happy Friday: Down Coats, Our Cashmere Wraps & More…

November 16, 2018

The East Coast experienced quite the snowstorm yesterday. We were warned that we'd get a small amount, but it ended up getting quite crazy. It took Keith three hours to get home yesterday! With this weather, I've been getting a lot of requests for warm jacket recommendations, so it's definitely on the upcoming editorial calendar. In the meantime, I'll recommend a few favorites.


Beauty Q&A Part I: Retinol & Botox

November 14, 2018

Yesterday on Instagram stories, I asked you all to submit your questions relating to beauty and I received so many great ones! Questions ranging from my holy grail products, sunscreen, botox, retinol, my favorite fragrances, hair care, extensions, etc. I decided it would make the most sense to split it into several posts. At first, I had it all in one, but it got to be  way too long and overwhelming. Today, I'm covering the two topics I got the most questions on: botox and retinol.


The Best Children’s Books

November 12, 2018

What are some of the best children's books you've read? We have some of our favorite classics like all of the books by Eric Carle, which are on constant rotation in our home. Even though we have quite a large collection of books, many are for little itty babies and we end up reaching for the same ten, over and over again. On a quest to find some of the best children's books out there, I asked all of you and got back some wonderful answers from mothers, grandmothers, teachers and from everyone in between  (as always - you guys are the best).

Friday Thought: “Glorifying the Past is the Thief of Joy…”

November 9, 2018

I know the title of this post is a little odd, but hear me out. The other day, I was listening to The Tim Ferriss Podcast and one of the episodes is taken over by a special guest, A.J. Jacobs. The title of the episode is "10 Strategies Be Happier Through Gratitude." I won't go into all of the strategies, but rather, one that really resonated with me: "Thou Shalt Not Have Nostalgia." 


My Favorite Plaid Coat

November 7, 2018

My love for plaid (and houndstooth) doesn't end with blazers or better yet, full blown plaid suits. I've moved on to outerwear and I'm not too mad about it.


Next Project: Dining Room Gallery Wall

November 5, 2018

If you've been following me for a bit, you may know that a couple of months ago, we renovated our bathroom and kitchen. It was an enormous undertaking, especially while living in it (with a toddler), but we're so pleased with the results. I promise, the complete before and after posts are coming soon! Now, I'm ready for our new project: a dining room gallery wall.
