Why Delegating Is Key To Running A Successful Online Business In 2018

September 7th, 2018

I realized the other day that it had been quite some time since my last blogging post, and I instantly felt the need to sit down and write a post to shed some light on my business for other bloggers out there or readers trying to launch a blog. When I first started blogging I got all my tips and tricks for how to scale my business from my marketing professors in college, from emailing bloggers and most importantly reading other blogs; so I knew I always wanted to carve out space on my blog to shed some…

A Tour of Stew Leonard’s, The Best Grocery Store in New England

September 4th, 2018

Today is a very exciting day because I’m bringing you all along on a tour of Stew Leonard’s, the best grocery store New England has to offer. Stew Leonard’s has the same customer service and dedication to the customer’s experience as Trader Joe’s yet packs in what feels like double the food options with a larger selection of locally grown produce and a full-service deli, butcher and fish station. Not to mention, comparable to Trader Joe’s, Stew Leonard’s has an amazing in-house brand, with items like Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, and Rainbow Bagels flying out the…

Creating A Morning Routine Even If You’re Not A Morning Person

August 31st, 2018

[outfit details] I mean, there is no hiding that I’m not a morning person. I have never been and never will be and I’m very self-aware of that; however, over the past few months, I started to find myself waking up on the wrong side of the bed morning after morning. I often found myself waking up around 8:00 AM already with a sense of not having enough time in the day to accomplish what needs to be done. Now part of that has to do with how busy I’ve been with work and work-related travel, but a…

Home Runs, Feeling at Home and Camaraderie

August 20th, 2018

Camaraderie is one of my favorite words in the English dictionary, simply because it’s used to describe a variety of situations. It can be applied as an adjective to describe a college’s student body, or a verb to describe an ideal workplace attitude, OR simply a feeling of belonging. I mean, we all want to feel like we belong and make an impact, am I right? But the essence of camaraderie is much more than just being somewhere, it’s actually investing yourself in where you are and belonging to something bigger than yourself, like sports. Too many people watching…

Finding Our First Home & The Architectural Styles We’re Considering

August 13th, 2018

Oh boy, it’s been a weekend. To recap, this past weekend Matt and I looked at over ten homes, wow; and while that may seem like A LOT or maybe it seems like NOT ENOUGH, we’ve definitely made progress in our house hunting predicament. Truth be told, we might even be close to wrapping it up, well at least the touring part. Now before I get too ahead of myself, let’s talk a little bit about the emotions that have gone into finding our first potential home, part one of many.  But before I get any further into this…

Big News Along Side An Even Bigger Move…

July 25th, 2018

This post is the definition of a long time coming, and boy does it feel good to get this off my chest.  I wanted to tell you guys right away when Matt and I suddenly got the news of our move back in May, but there was still so much up in the air, and soooo many trips and events going on between then and now, that we put a pin in it. We figured we should hold off and make the announcement once we were officially moved out of our apartment in Dallas and back in Connecticut…

My Dream New England Beach House Town…

July 23rd, 2018

      I mean, I feel like this post would be a fun way to open up a very important conversation. This conversation topic is something I’ve methodically thought about over and over again until I knew my decision was certain. So here it goes, let’s discuss where you’d buy a New England beach house if the budget wasn’t an issue. Good question, right?   Okay, before we go down the rabbit hole and dig any deeper into this topic we need to discuss this gorgeous flutter sleeve shirt, I’m wearing. This blouse has to be one of the most…

Why I’ll Never Stop Blogging & Why I Love It

July 16th, 2018

You can thank Instagram’s innovative features for inspiring this blog post today. Last Monday I decided to try out Instagram’s new ‘ask me anything feature’ and while I wasn’t sure what type of questions I’d get, or if I’d get any, I was very surprised when I saw a bunch of blogging related questions roll in. I was shocked but thrilled because blogging means so much to me and I was happy that it wasn’t a dying art form, which is how it can feel sometimes. A lot has changed since I started blogging and a lot of that…

Okay, chances are you’ll feel excited, nervous, stressed out and exhilarated; but in today’s world thinking of where to go or what to eat can seem almost as daunting as getting asked out on a date, which is why I had to pipe in and ease those first date jitters. Dating can be nerve-wracking, but finding the perfect date night activity doesn’t have to be, which brings me to this post and why mini golf makes the ultimate…
