Exploring Good Housekeeping’s Headquarters and a Miele Event

October 24th, 2018

A few weeks ago, our crew was invited to New York for an event at the Good Housekeeping Headquarters, in Manhattan; for a night of fashion, fun and a new spin on laundry with the brand Miele. Quickly and without hesitation, we responded back to the invite with a GIANT, yes; as I’ve been obsessing over Miele’s products ever since Matt and I began looking for our first home. With that being said, New York City is always a whirlwind and with so much to do, see and capture; we felt it would be easiest to just bring you…

New Englander’s Guide to Hydrangeas

May 28th, 2018

You know it’s summertime in New England when the hydrangeas start to bloom, and boy are they beautiful this year. The other day I posted this picture of hydrangeas on Instagram and instantly got an overwhelming amount of responses and DM’s asking me about the do’s and don’ts of hydrangeas. Now instead of responding to everyone’s questions individually, I figured I’d throw together this post as a sort of a New Englander’s Guide to Hydrangeas for you all to reference and have for years to come.  Now let’s start this post off with a disclaimer, by no means…

Don’t Overthink Dating

September 29th, 2017

Okay, so every week I check my google analytics to see what posts you guys are currently loving on the blog and every week I see this post from 2014 in the top ten. It was probably one of my first ever blog posts, and I almost regret linking it as the images are eh, the poses are horrid and my grammar is less than up to par, but everyone has to start somewhere right. Anyway, I felt it was time to update this post almost four years later. After re-reading the 2014 post, I realize not much…

To say my mother was inspired by the seasons is an understatement…if only you could see our house come Christmas, it’s Spectacular inside and out.    So when it was my own turn to decorate our apartment for fall, I knew I really wanted…

August 21st, 2017

Thank you, Leesa® for sponsoring this post and providing us with a mattress to review. All opinions stated below are my own. It’s been officially one year today since Matt and I moved into our Dallas apartment. I hate to say how quickly time flies, but this year, especially the summer just blew right by us. In June, Matt & I made an executive decision to make my large office space, into a guest bedroom as well. The reason for this decision was that, we found more and more people asking to come visit Dallas from New England, along with the fact that now both my brother and…
