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.

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…

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….

Being Patient With The Process

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. Now we’ve been to Newport a few times before and had done a lot of the typical tourist attractions like touring the mansions and taking a plunge at first beach; sooooo when we made plans to visit Newport again, we wanted to explore an attraction neither of us had seen prior. Long story short, that’s how we found ourselves at The Green Animals Topiary Garden.  The Green Animals…
