My week in Pink

Happy Friday everyone! Hoping you all have a fun weekend ahead. I on the other hand, will be attending a funeral for an uncle that suddenly passed away. He’s leaving behind his wife, three children/spouses and ten grandchildren. Please say a prayer that they may find some peace and comfort to get through this trying […]

A Newfound Love

Bagels used to be one of those foods that I never considered making because they already seemed to be perfected and perfectly wrapped waiting for me in the bakery aisle. That was until I came across this recipe in Rue mag. I decided to make these the other night once the kids were in bed. […]

Our Dining Room

I imagine that a dining room may not be a big deal to most of you, but this is the first time we’ve actually had a room specifically for dining. Not a coffee table, or a nook or a breakfast bar. A real dining room. We make it a point to eat as a family […]

Stripe Lovin’

Stripes are everywhere right now. I’ve recently had fun sporting my striped espadrilles here, and a striped cotton skirt here. I don’t think they can actually be called a trend, but I’m happy to see them everywhere I look. Above you’ll find a number of pieces that caught my eye. I’d gladly sport any of […]

Neon lace

Madewell top, LOFT pants, Kate Spade sunglasses, Marc Jacobs watch, Bloomingdales bangles, Macy’s necklace, Sam Edelman sandals (similar) We decided to take a last minute trip back to Hoboken this weekend. We’ve been gone for only three months, but it feels like an eternity. ┬áIt was a whirlwind of seeing friends, dining out, walking (oh […]

Accessorize your Home

  All too frequently I get the desire to redecorate our home. I was in a home decor store last week and found myself envious of the owner who was rearranging her store, again and again. Unfortunately, that’s not very practical. I have a hard enough time getting my husband to lift the couch for […]

Beach Roundup

Anyone beach bound soon? Although we are not heading to the shore until August, I can’t help but browse all of the fun beachwear that’s out there. Below you’ll find two dozen items which can be mixed and matched to create some beautiful and practical beach ensembles. Clockwise from top left: Anthropologie, Anthropologie, Juicy Couture, […]

To Ombre or not?

Although my hairstyle has changed over the years, I’ve basically always had highlighted locks. I’m not sure how long the ombre trend will last, but I’m very tempted to give it a try. Highlights require a lot of maintenance and it’d be great to have a little break on the up-keep. I’m hesitant however, because […]

Birthday Bash

Since our children happen to have birthdays that are two weeks apart, it seemed fit to have a combined birthday party. I figure we’ll get away with this as long as we can. We were leaning towards a Peter Pan/Tinkerbell party, but when my son decided that Captain Hook may show up he nixed the […]

Stripes and Brights

Anthropologie top (old), Target necklace, Kate Spade sunglasses shown below (old), JCrew shorts, JCrew Espadrilles, Michelle watch As soon as these shoes (seen previously here) and shorts arrived from JCrew I knew I wanted to pair them together. We threw a Mickey/Minnie party for our son and daughter over the weekend and although I wasn’t […]
