Labor Day Weekend & Best Labor Day Sales

September 2nd, 2018

      Labor Day Weekend is my favorite three day weekend of the year because it signifies the start of school and most importantly the anticipation of fall. Now while I’m no longer a student, I’m a huge fan of creating and maintaining a routine which can be tricky during the summer. But with all the kiddos back in school and work-related travel slowing down, I’m excited to get more settled in Connecticut and continue our home search.    Now I had quite a busy weekend with Tessa as we explored Fairfield County and continued her college search. We…

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…

2018 Summer Favorites

August 29th, 2018

Summer is quickly coming to a close here in New England; students are heading off to school, beach towns are starting to feel less and less populated along with the random hints of foliage peeking through the trees. This past summer was a hectic one between my travel schedule, Matt and I’s move back to New England and endless weekends of house hunting; with all that being said, I’ve had the chance to test out a bunch of new products that I had to share with you all!  Summer 2018 Favorites List:    + Adella Bralette  + Boston Red…

Strolling Through Stonington

August 27th, 2018

Last Friday my sister, mom and I decided to take a spontaneous road trip down to a town we’ve all been dying to explore, Stonington Connecticut. This specific town has been on my, to-do list for a while because you all know I love exploring the nooks and crannies of New England. In fact last summer we drove all the way down towards Stonington in hopes of shooting summer content, only to find ourselves lost and in Rhode Island, equally scenic enough. Soooo map in hand and ice coffees in cupholders we embraced on an hour ride towards…

Halter Neck Fit And Flare

August 21st, 2018

I take my dress purchases very seriously and I often invest in pieces I know I’ll wear in my day to day life. With that being said, I usually find myself purchasing shift dresses, shirt dresses, and the occasional statement dress to have on hold come special events. Now since I wear statement dresses the least amount, I’m always hesitant about investing in a piece and often wait until they go on sale, to pull the trigger. So you can only imagine how excited I was when I saw this darling halter neck fit and flare dress go…

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…

Why Mini Golf Makes The Ultimate First Date

July 9th, 2018

First dates can really put your emotions through the wringer, and it’s important to be prepared for anything and everything. 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…

July 6th, 2018

I can’t believe this week marks the first of July, and with so much going on, and with big travel plans in the works, I’m looking forward to taking a step back and enjoying the best scenic routes Connecticut has to offer. This past weekend,  I was bogged down with the summer bug, so I’m extra eager to make the most of the beautiful weather we’ll see and hit the open road to explore. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed,  I like to get outside of myself and hit the drive the quaintest of Connecticut’s Scenic Summer Routes with…

What To Wear, When Boating In New England

July 2nd, 2018

It’s summertime in New England which means it’s time to unbutton the covers on our boats and induldge in the best dockable resturants Connecticut has to offer. Now, this past week has been eceptionally hot in New England, which has all of us leaving our yards, pools and golf carts and heading towards the cool refreshing brezze of the ocean. To be honest, this time of year is one of my favorites to dress for but I often get emails from you all asking for suggestions on what to wear, when boating in New England; so Tessa and…
