(PS: In case you need to play catch up, you can browse our bedroom inspiration, and our bedroom moodboard and plans posts to see the […]

For those of you who don’t know, I actually offer wardrobe consultation services, where I can help curate your closet by culling the unnecessary and/or articulating gaps that need to be filled. I was recently approached and asked to put together book bag options by a residential interior designer. She works in the city, commuting […]

Beginnings of Spring in Boston

Three Pinterest Meals I Tried and Loved!

March 19, 2019

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 […]

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, […]

Our Winter Getaway to Cabo

March 6, 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!
