 I am so excited about today’s post! First off, I’d like to thank Country Club Prep for making this exciting giveaway possible but before I go into any more details on that, let’s jump into a little behind the scenes and what a day at Groton Long Point looks like.

Exploring Bowen’s Wharf

June 25th, 2018

Nothing is more soothing and exciting than the hustle and bustle of Bowen’s Wharf come summertime. In fact, if you asked me to describe Newport, Rhode Island to you, the first thing that comes to my mind is the historic wharves and all they have to offer. So, I was ecstatic when Tessa and I had enough time on our previous trip to Newport, to clock out early and enjoy a leisurely ‘linner’ at Bowen’s Wharf.   The stunning 18th-century brick wharf buildings, bring you instantly back to Bowen’s start as a thriving seaport in colonial New England….

June 18th, 2018

There is A LOT going on in my life at the moment, which sounds so dramatic but it’s a lot of really exciting things, that I can’t wait to open up and share with you all soon! But until then I wanted to sit down, clear my mind and kind of vent about the all too real-life lesson, these big ventures have taught me, but to put it simply, these experiences have truly taught me how to be patient with the process.  You know how people always say patience is a virtue, well they weren’t kidding. By nature…

Summer Wedding Guest Dress

June 15th, 2018

Tis the season for weddings, especially here in New England, and while I’m not personally attending any big weddings this year, I figured I’d play dress up and show you my go-to event outfit. Whether it’s a wedding, polo-match or brunch at the Ocean House I love getting to dress up and style dresses that I normally wouldn’t wear on a daily basis. Okay, now when purchasing a dress for an event I always try to purchase styles that can be dressed up or down depending on the type of event I’ll be attending. I do this so…

If you follow me on Instagram, and if you don’t you should be, then you already know that this past weekend Tessa and I headed to Newport, Rhode Island, for a little adventure.

Long story short, that’s how we found ourselves at The Green Animals Topiary Garden.  The Green Animals…

5 Apps I Can’t Live Without, When It Comes To Running A Blog

June 4th, 2018

Seven days a week, from 9 AM till 11 PM, I basically never put down my phone. I hate admitting that but it’s the truth, I mean technically I could run my whole business from my phone and who knows, maybe someday I will, you never know. Anway working for myself allows me the freedom to work when I want and where I want, which makes having my phone on hand, organized and charged ideal. Whether I get an email that needs an immediate response or become overwhelmed with a blog post idea and decide to write the…

Whether I’m wearing it to add a pop of color to my outfit or to tie back my hair after a long day on the boat; I’m known for always have a silk scarf shoved somewhere within my purse and within hands reach. Now, for the longest time I use to obsess over the Gucci, Hermes and Prada silk scarfs other influencers were wearing, I would dream of the day…
