Fashion party and a GIVEAWAY!

What is more enticing than spending an evening with a group of ladies, sipping drinks, nibbling on snacks, chatting away and shopping with a discount?? Not much I don’t believe. Last Friday I mentioned that I attended a party at a new fashion boutique, JEG,  in my hometown of Hollidaysburg, PA. Should you live in […]

All About Marisa

That title alone makes me cringe a bit because I’m not one to be the center of attention, which is ironic since this blog is all about me. My thoughts, my ideas and my advice. I’m working out of my comfort zone here friends! I know my family would beg to differ, but that doesn’t […]

Comfortable Style

Sometimes my outfits are planned around a fun top or a beautiful piece of jewelry. This outfit, however, was built around a super comfy cotton tank. You know those shirts that make you feel like you’re wearing your pj’s all day? Sometimes that’s all I want. All you need to do is play it up […]

High Five for Friday

Thank goodness I captured some images from this week so that I can remember what happened. It totally flew by for me, how about you? I love and hate those weeks because obviously the weekends typically prove to be a good time and it’s exciting when Friday arrives, but at the same time it reminds […]

Getting to know me…

Hi friends! Well, it’s been almost two months since I started out on this blogging venture and I’m truly enjoying myself. It’s been fun sharing my thoughts and advice on fashion, food (ok, sweets) decor and whatever else I’ve had on my mind. At times I still feel brand spanking new in this world as […]

Piece of Pie

Blueberry pie, to be exact. My family has been indulging in all of the summer fruits this season. Madelyn (13 months) is turning out to be quite the berry fanatic. Since our fridge has been constantly stocked with these plump berries, I decided to jump on this recipe when it arrived in my inbox. It would […]

Wedding Ensembles…at shocking prices!

I love a chance to get all dolled up and weddings are a perfect excuse. However, for us, this summer/fall seems to be more about the babies than the weddings. The obvious results of all of last years weddings ;) But for those of you ladies that do have wedding plans in your future, I […]

Wearing White

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? What a busy, fun filled long weekend we had! It was full of friends and family and fairly few meltdowns, always a plus! Now that the 4th has come and gone, summer feels like it’s in full swing. We only have a few short months that technically allow […]

High Five for Friday

I hope everyone enjoyed the 4th and are continuing to have a fantastic long weekend! Looking back on my week, it has basically consisted of fun, food and family… My son during “Touch A Truck Day”. I can’t begin to tell you what a genius idea this was. Every truck you could imagine in one place. […]

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July, my friends! We were spoiled for the past few years living in Hoboken and being able to have front row seats for the Macy’s fireworks. They were set off on barges in the Hudson River which separates Hoboken from Manhattan, and each year my son cried on my shoulder. Now it’s […]
