Sharing all things lovely
in fashion, interiors, & WELL BEING,
while trying to live life a bit more sustainably. 

bonjour! i'm mary:
welcome to my blog.

The struggle is always real trying to fight the urge to go out to eat or to grab take out on the way home from work versus actually cooking something fresh at home. You’re tired and you only know like four easy recipes, all of which you are sick of. And by “you” I mean […]

Three Pinterest Meals I Tried and Loved!

March 19, 2019

Finding a good floor lamp is surprisingly harder than I thought it would be. One: they are expensive….particularly for someone like me who has been functioning off of Ikea and Target lighting for all these years. Graduating to something higher quality and more unique is definitely graduating to a new tier in the wallet dipping, […]

Current Favorite Floor Lamps

March 12, 2019

As you know, winter in New England can be brutal. And if you follow my Instagram, you know I recently ran away from old man winter and escaped to much fairer weather in Mexico! I’ve learned that the secret to every Bostonian’s happiness is to go somewhere warm to recharge at some point during blizzard […]

Our Winter Getaway to Cabo

March 6, 2019

I’ve been mulling over this decision and tossing over how to write this post for some time now…and what I’ve concluded is that I just need to stop searching for the perfect words, or event, or time and just rip the band aid. So here it is: I’m closing Millay Market. Closing the physical storefront […]

Let’s Make it Official: Saying Goodbye

February 12, 2019

Confession: I’m known to digitally window shop Net-A-Porter a lot, dreaming up super chic outfits and parties I can go to if my budget were truly unlimited. More than that though, their magazine Porter is essentially the only fashion magazine I subscribe to anymore because they really know their stuff, and it often sparks lots […]

What I’m Coveting…

February 3, 2019

Progress on our home, eight months in It’s been a while since I’ve really shared what our home looks like, so I thought it was high time to share the progress we’ve made in making it our own, new ideas on what we’d like to see done, and our next steps. So here we go! […]

Our Home: An Update

February 1, 2019

  Skincare is a finicky thing. Way back when I had braces and started breaking out, I quickly learned that skincare was a commitment and not having a proper face care regimen would lead to dire consequences…because I have sensitive, combination/oily, blemish-prone skin. Thanks mom! I’ve had a long journey to find what works relatively […]

My Skincare Routine

January 9, 2019

Hello friends! Pardon all the radio silence here and on Instagram: I’ve been taking on more work at my new job than I first anticipated (which is a great thing, I genuinely LOVE my new job as an interior designer and brand team leader at Room and Board) and have been working long days where […]

Millay’s Holiday Gift Guide

December 12, 2018

(Room above by Heidi Caillier Design) As hinted over on my Instagram stories, I had the brilliant idea for a new little series over here. I was hunting for a small-scale, handsome, and structural chair for my living room and was (as usual) finding troves of awesome stuff on Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, and NextDoor that […]

Secondhand Home Finds: A New Series

November 7, 2018

If you have been following my style journey for a while now, you know that I am a vocal advocate of not only supporting ethical and sustainable makers and products, but also eliminating the use of synthetics in your wardrobe. Anytime I’m making a new purchase, I dig around the inside of the garment, find […]
