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…

Location  •   Foxwoods, CT

If you follow my Instagram, then you already know that my siblings and I have been taking advantage of the pre-Black Friday sales, all week long. On Wednesday, we headed to The Tanger Outlets at Foxwoods and scored some amazing prices at: J.Crew Factory, Vineyard Vines, Sunglass Hut, and Kate Spade.  To be honest, a lot of the Black Friday sales have been here all week and will probably extend through next, but all the good stuff has been selling out fast, so…

In-Flight Travel Essentials

November 14th, 2017
Location  •   Logan Airport, MA

Packing use to be something I honestly dreaded, but now it seems like a monthly chore. Since graduating college, almost two years ago, I’ve become quite the little traveler. I split my time between New England (for work) and Dallas (for Matt), which means a lot of late night flights and drives to the airport. I’ve actually been to the Dallas airport six times this month, so sometimes it feels like my second office. 

Now that I’m traveling more and more I’ve put a packing system in place that…

When we arrived at the tasting room, we were overwhelmed with…

November is my favorite time to bundle up in layers and head outside to roast some s’mores with my youngest sister Tessa. In fact, we did exactly that this past weekend! We pulled on our holiday socks and spent over three hours outside in freezing November air, which you can see in this blog post here. However recently it’s gotten a little too cold to cozy up by the fire,…

Thorncrest Farm & Milk House Chocolates

November 7th, 2017
Location  •   Thorncrest Farm, Goshen CT

Last week, I woke up to an unusually warm November day and called up my Mom to see if she wanted to hit the road to explore. She agreed and we took about an hour ride up to Goshen, CT. In the past, I had heard wonderful things about the little town of Goshen, but most importantly, I heard word of a farm and chocolate factory that I had to see with my own two eyes. 

So yes, I drove an hour for artistry chocolate and yes it was worth every…
