Gift Guide: In the Kitchen

I’m sure many of you will be finding yourselves in the kitchen at some point today or tomorrow. Whether you’re hosting or doing your part in bringing along a side or dessert to your Thanksgiving dinner, chances are you’ll be keeping yourself busy. And it won’t end there. December is likely the month where your […]

Lasagne Soup

I know you’re all about to get yourselves into¬†turkey overload, but before that happens I wanted to share with you an awesome recipe I tried last week. I love lasagne, but I’m not a fan of the time consuming prep work that is required. With my fondness for soups, I knew this one was right […]

Layered in Pastel

You guys know I’m a huge fan of pastels. Any season, any weather, the more the merrier. Take for example, these shots from last week in NYC when the frigid weather hit. It was literally freezing and the wind was out of control. Thankfully I had a chunky sweater, wool coat and fur to keep […]

High Five for Friday

Friday has arrived! It’s been a busy week and I’m looking forward to a somewhat relaxing weekend ahead of us. I’m going to try to savor this last week leading up to Thanksgiving because we all know from that point forward, it’s game on! Don’t worry, I’m already working on some gift guides to help […]

Where’s Marisa?

Hey all! Today you can actually catch me over at The Style Letters where I’m being featured on Maria’s Style Views! Maria is one of the 9 other winners of the Redbook Real Women Style Awards who I had the pleasure of meeting this past summer. She is a beautiful lady, inside and out, with […]

Snickerdoodle Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread is something I have enjoyed numerous times, yet I had never prepared it myself. Well, now that I have I’m certain it’s going to happen much more often in our home! It’s best enjoyed immediately out of the oven while it’s still warm and gooey and pairs perfectly with coffee or tea. It’s […]

Out of Office…

Hey guys! Hopefully yesterday’s news can tide you over for a day. I took a quick trip with my husband to NYC and had every intention of finishing up a post for today, but now that my secret is out I can say, with your full understanding, that I was just too exhausted! In a […]

I’ve Been Keeping A Secret….

Go ahead, call me crazy. Come early May we’ll be expending our family to five and Jack and I will officially be outnumbered! This wasn’t a complete shock, but regardless I’m not sure I was really ready for this. To be quite honest, I do not love being pregnant. At all. I envy the women […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! I’m not sure anything makes me realize how fast time flies as much as blogging does. No sooner do I finish one ‘Friday’ post and it seems I’m drafting¬†another. And this time we’re nearly half way through November and closing in on Thanksgiving. Speaking of Thanksgiving, has anyone else been craving this meal […]

Warm Layers

As the cold is rolling in, my layers have been adding up. You’ve recently seen me wearing my fur vest here and here, but my love of vests continues onto the sweater vest. Layering is often necessary but one way I avoid too much bulk is by using vests. They add warmth where needed without […]
