We are now in the thick of holiday festivities, and it’s important to check your Christmas shopping list twice.

Figuring out non-expensive but thoughtful trinkets to fill your significant other’s stocking can be hard, so today I’m here to help. 

I know for a fact Matt needs help finding stocking stuffers, he basically reminds me every…

Leopard Coat c/o || White Turtleneck || Black Denim || Shoes

This post has been long overdue, for one reason in particular, and that reason being I was having the hardest time finding that perfect leopard coat. I really didn’t want to pull the plug on this timeless piece until I knew it was a cut I would return to year after year, so when I walked by the leopard number above hanging in the window, of my local J.McLaughlin

Holiday Ice Cream Bar with Graeter’s

December 4th, 2017
Location  •   Old Wethersfield, CT

Tis the season to throw dieting to the wind and indulge in your favorite tastes and sweets of the season. While candy canes and gingerbread men might be the typical go-to holiday items for your Christmas party, I prefer treating guests to a festive holiday ice cream bar for all to remember. Whenever I start preparing for my annual holiday ice cream bar, I always go out in search of my favorite ice cream brand, Graeter’s. I honestly can’t get enough of this family-owned ice cream brand, and if you haven’t heard of them before you might recognize their beautiful packaging from your recent trip to the grocery store.

NEW ENGLAND ORNAMENT COLLECTION VIDEO 

I’ve been known for premature Christmas decorating, and Matt’s pretty relaxed about the whole thing until I tried to sneak a Christmas tree in the house…on November 15th. You could say he put his foot down, but now that it is officially, well almost, December you bet my tree is up and rocking. 

This year Matt and I compromised and picked out a Charlie Brown Christmas tree since we are…
