If you guys have been following along for the past few months then you know, Matt and I have been searching endlessly for our first home; and if you’ve missed all the home updates you can catch up with this post and this post.

October 31st, 2018

  Happy Halloween! Honestly, I’m not usually a spooky Halloween gal, but this year I really went above and beyond to embrace the holiday. You may have noticed things got a little dark over on our Instagram feed and maybe you even noticed the hints of orange speckled in between brown boarded homes. I mean, it’s as spooky as my New England feed will get but I think it’s better than nothing. All and all, my motivation for embracing this holiday comes back to my love for New England. Now that Matt and I are officially moved back,…

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…

Dealing With The Pressure That Come With Content Creation

October 22nd, 2018

On average, I like to steer away from posts that could come off as complaining or ranting about my job or the blogging industry; because when push comes to shove I’m obsessed with this industry and my job. Not to mention I am beyond grateful to have readers like yourself, actually visiting my site and caring enough to read up on what’s going on, in my life and New England. With all that being said, this is a job and like any job, there is pressure, stress, and fear of failing; and I felt like it was about…

Fall is not only the best time to visit New England, but it is also the busiest time for us local New Englanders! Between town fairs, the annual Head of Charles Regatta, cheering on the New England Patriots and ROOTING on the Boston Red Sox; weekend after weekend seems to fly by with non-stop festivities.

How To Find Picturesque Locations For Your Next Blog Photoshoot

October 5th, 2018

I would honestly say the hardest part of my job is finding ideal locations for our blog photoshoot sessions. I know I know, that might seem like such a simple job; but when push comes to shove I would much rather work on the strategic growth, photo editing and advertising side of my business than the nitty gritty creative stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I still love getting creative, in fact, I’m quite obsessive about staging a shoot, writing content that brings value to you all and showcasing the best and I mean the BEST that New England…

How To Maneuver Stressful Situations In A Relationship

October 1st, 2018

The reason why I love living in New England has a lot to do with its seasons and constant sense of change in the air. Like life, New England knows how to keep you on your toes. You see some seasons are exciting and filled with wonder, like autumn, and yet some seasons are bleak, ugly and just unbearable to work with; like shooting pictures in muddy spring. All and all a New Englander Yankee sense of dealing with what life or New England has to throw at them, has been a key factor in how Matt and…
