A room in progress

Since we moved in to our condo in March, I have been slowly working on my son’s room. He shared a room with his baby sister while we were in Hoboken, so I’m enjoying creating a space of his own. I wanted to skip the whole toddler, kiddie bedding because A) I’m not a huge […]

A little open back

Green is one of my favorite colors to wear, from mint to turquoise to hunter green . I have had this sweater for a while now and each time I wear it I forget how much I love it. It’s perfect for summer days with 70 degree temps. It’s light, soft, colorful and playful with an […]

Whirlwind Weekend

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Sometimes our weekends are nice and peaceful and other times they end up jam packed with activities. This was was of those such weekends for us. I’m just now coming up for air and could use a weekend to recoop! My girlfriend and I took […]

High Five for Friday

Happy friday, friends! What a fun, eventful week we had. It was full of quality time with family and friends which included a lunch with the kids, my mother, grandmother and sister, at a Victorian cafe. As my mom was reviewing her tea etiquette, my daughter was wobbling around doing her best to destroy the […]

Fun with Nails

I’m not one to get nail art on a manicure no matter how hard they push their flowers on me at the salon. Actually, it’s very rare that I even get a manicure done at the salon because they’ll last a whole day and a half on my nails. But when I do them myself, […]

Trending: Peplum

I can’t decide if peplum has over-saturated the fashion industry yet or not, but it’s probably close. For whatever reason I haven’t added many peplum pieces to my wardrobe. That’s not to say I don’t think it’s adorable, fun and flattering (ie instantly adds a waist to any body). Here you will find a few […]

7 New Items for Your Kitchen

Just as I always have an on-going wish-list for fashion, I also keep one for my kitchen. New clothes and accessories inspire my outfits the same way that new tools/gadgets inspire me in the kitchen. At the top of my list remains a KitchenAid mixer. I know this is a hot item on wedding registries, […]

Outfit of the day/ JEG Giveaway winner

It appears that we’re closing in on my favorite part of summer. The season is in full swing, everyone’s a bit sun-kissed, and summer clothes are going on sale making way for the new fall arrivals. As I have mentioned, fall is my favorite season, but I can’t quite focus on jackets and sweaters with […]

High Five for Friday

Happy friday my friends! Another summer week has come and gone and the heat continues to linger. After a week full of rain last week, this week we welcomed the sun, even if it did include temps ranging from 90-100 degrees (It was the first time I saw my car register a 102 temp!). We […]

A peek into the Nursery

I’m not sure why kids have to grow up so fast, but I guess that’s just how it goes. Not long ago, my 13 mo old daughter, Madelyn, was crawling around chewing on teethers and now she’s climbing on tables and stealing her brother’s toys. Before I know it she’ll be ready for a big […]
